An erotic ride into a world filled with special powers, suspense, and action, LOST is the first book in what I think will be a marvelous new series by Abby Blake.
Theresa has always been different. Left on the steps of an orphanage as an infant, she's always felt different from everyone else. She doesn't know what's wrong with her but she does her best to hide her differences from everyone else. Her life changes drastically when she has the worst anxiety attack she's ever experience right before she's abducted by someone she senses meant to do her harm.
Caleb and Ethan are federal agents who use their special powers to hunt down terrorists and protect the country without them even knowing. While trying to apprehend a rogue terrorist, they get overwhelming sensation that a woman is in danger. When they finally catch up to her, they can't get over how much they all connect.
As the three of them explore their feelings and their powerful connection, they have to get to the bottom of why Theresa was abducted, who's behind it, and what more lies ahead.
This book was great! It's short, but man, there's a lot packed into that story.
Theresa is such a great character. She's got no idea how powerful she is because she's been isolated her whole life. What she's seen as a weakness her whole life has been amazing powers she just didn't know how to control. Ethan and Caleb are so close they are almost the same person, they are so in tune with their powers it seems fitting that they would be the perfect people to help Theresa figure out her powers.
The plot of a conspiracy to find people with special powers was suspenseful and full of action. The trio doesn't know who to turn to, and we get the sense that we've only skimmed the surface by the end of the book. I felt like I couldn't stop reading because I had to know what happened next.
The eroticism of the book was intense. The sexual chemistry between the trio was enhanced due to the their abilities to sense each other's feeling. That in turn increased the arousal between them and it was extremely sensual.
So, LOST, the first book in the Altered Destinies series, is setting the series off on the right track. With its action-packed and suspenseful plot, well-developed characters, and it's compelling eroticism, it was a definite winner. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next in the series.
