Around the world, murderers and rapists pick off the innocent. Killing loved ones, separating families, and ruining lives.
As an eight-year-old girl, Ocean witnessed her family’s massacre and something altered inside her. Twisting her genetic code… unlocking an ability to teleport.
Ocean Breeze was never destined to be normal, especially having been named after air-freshener. She’s a shadow, a ghost—a dark saviour of the innocent. Armed with a switchblade in her bra, and a box-cutter in her pocket, she hunts the filth of the world.
Callan Bliss is a Sydney police officer whose skill-set is far above that of a normal cop. All his fellow officers see is a hard worker who loves to catch perpetrators and surf, but that’s because they don’t know about his past. When Callan arrests a suspicious-looking prostitute, he comes face-to-face with a self-confessed vigilante, and suddenly, his secrets aren’t so easy to keep silent.
Ocean hates the police with a passion, and has no intention of being held captive by a cop, even if he is sexy as hell. Teleporting from under his nose, Ocean hunts her next target—a man responsible for the largest sex ring in South Africa—and now he’s about to die. But she doesn’t count on Callan giving chase, nor the body-quaking lust that consumes them. However, Ocean's dark hobbies take precedence over what her heart wants—her thirst for murdering is killing her too, and not even Callan can save her.
God, this book was...beyond awesome. The teleporting assassin concept was a new one and a very well done one as well. Even thought it's the first book and it's not really explained in depth, there are hints as to it's origin and I can tell it's gonna get complicated.
I liked how the romance developed, even though Callan was a bit too overprotective it still worked somehow for this, probably cause Ocean doesn't take any of his crap xD
I would like to know more about those marks and how badly it affects Ocean. The only thing I had a bit of a problem with was how Ocean kept assuming things about their relationship and kept trying to runaway to protect him, but it wasn't as bad as in other books, cause at least Ocean actually has a valid reason, what with her marks and mental health.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great New Adult UF/PN book.
