Peril ~ Review

Peril
Bloodlines Trilogy #3
By Jordyn Redwood

Peril is the third offering in the Bloodlines Trilogy and it is intense.

Morgan Adams and her husband Tyler Adams are teetering on the edge after the death of their baby. But this is just one part of their problems Morgan needs a kidney due to a complication of her pregnancy and she is running out of time and the will to keep going.  But when an unknown family tie comes to light she, along with the hospital where she works, is drawn into a hostage situation.

Dr. Thomas Reeves is conducting experiments that are having unexpected side-effects on the patients. The issues seem to be only in their minds, but there is evidence beginning to surface that may prove otherwise.  But Dr. Reeves's sole focus is his own success and the potential accolades that may come his way.  Career is everything to him - friendship and family have no ties on his heart.

There are aspects in this book that are quite intriguing such as persistent memory on cells and organ donation.  Though this is technically a fiction/suspense it is a book that will make you stop and think - after you've finished reading the book, that is.  This is also a book that will touch your heart so be sure to have a tissue or two nearby.

I was provided a copy this book by Kregel in exchange for my honest review.


About the book: 
Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.

An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.

The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves's daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren't revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.
This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today's headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?
