"a story with action and adventure"
Opal's life changes when a genetically engineered soldier
comes into her life. Opal works as a doctor in a clinic
that is in a remote jungle in Papua, New Guinea. But all
changes the day the engineered soldier drops into her life,
and she has to go on the run to stay alive. She must keep
ahead of the ruthless men, the compatriots who are a
mercenary company known as Blackstorm. Her life was pretty
normal, or as normal as it can be in a remote jungle
clinic, but at least it was her life, but all of that has
changed and now she fears for her life and isn't sure what
she is going to do. On the way she meets up with a
Mercenary who is called Pholus after the mythical centaur
of all things, they team up to stay alive. But can they
stay ahead and alive while on the run with the Blackstorm
after them? Can they keep their feelings for each other
from jeopardizing their safety? All Opal knows is that
Pholus is one person she can trust with not only her body
but with her heart.
This story packs a punch with the action and interesting
story line. I just loved it. The highly intense battle to
stay alive was one hard fight for Opal after having
somewhat of a normal life in the remote clinic where she
worked as a doctor. All of that changes when she is forced
to go on the run to stay alive. That is where she meets
Pholus, a mercenary who will be what comes between her and
the ones that want to hurt her. This story had me reading
as fast as I could to find out what the author was going to
do with Opal and Pholus next. I can say that I want more of
this story and hope that Nobilis, the author writes more.

Opal is a doctor working at a remote clinic in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. When a strange, genetically engineered soldier drops into her life, she must run for her life to escape his ruthless compatriots, a mercenary company known as Blackstorm. Along the way, the mercenary, called "Pholus" after a mythical centaur, finds that there are "feelings stronger than instinct, and loyalties higher than money."
