Author: Adriana Anders
What I’m Talking About:
I really enjoyed Whiteout, the first book in the Survival Instincts series by Adriana Anders, but I have to say the second book, Uncharted left me leaving a little lukewarm.
I think for me, Leo and Elias didn’t have as much chemistry as Ford and Angel did in Whiteout. Also the danger level wasn’t as high this time around. The story line of the dangerous virus continues but also falls a little flat.
It series premise is a great one, strangers lost and in danger in the icy Alaskan wilderness, but I think the scientist angle in the previous book was more spot on for the dangerous virus element. Maybe each book in this series could’ve shared the setting of Alaska but had different plot lines for each story? (Shrug)
Uncharted was almost a DNF for me but I pushed through to the end. While it didn’t hit the mark for me I’ll still check out Adriana Anders’ next release!
My Rating: D, Not A Big Fan
About the Book:
Hotshot pilot Leo Eddowes is afraid of nothing and no one. So when she’s asked to evacuate a man from the wilds of Alaska, she doesn’t hesitate. But with enemies in close pursuit and the weather turning sour, what should have been a simple mission quickly shifts to disaster.
And there’s only one way out.
When Elias Thorne disappeared, he was America’s most wanted. Now he’s spent more than a decade in one of the most remote places on earth, guarding a dangerous secret. Leo’s arrival, quickly followed by a team of expert hunters, leaves him no choice but to join forces with her—and run. Neither is prepared for their reluctant partnership to flare into something as wild and untamed as the frozen world around them…but as desperately cold days melt into scorchingly hot nights, Leo and Elias must learn to dig deep, trust in each other, and forge a bond as strong as the forces of nature.
Stranded together in a frozen wilderness,
There’s nowhere left to run…
