[REVIEW] Fallen Rogue – Amy Rench

Harper Kane is taking a break from training for the Olympic trials to visit her scientist brother in Oregon. Upon arrival, Dr Robert Kane is killed, and a major confrontation not long after ends in Harper being injected with a serum that gives her powerful psi abilities. Rome Lucian soon discovers that his boss wants to experiment on Harper – then kill her, as well as Rome.

The scientific elements are deliciously intriguing, but the rest of the novel is simply a romantic suspense to which I didn’t warm. Being a romance, there’s an HEA, which takes away any suspense. The characters are fine enough on their own, but their romance isn’t appealing. Harper and Rome go a bit stupid around each other, getting carried away with checking out the other’s physique instead of focusing on the investigative task at hand. Basically they seem to get together because there are really no other candidates. Other than Harper, the only female was a scientist unnerved by Rome’s looks, and other than Rome (and Harper’s deceased brother), the only men were antagonists.

I really wanted to like this, and while I loved the science, nothing else interested me.

War is brewing in a near-future world where murder is all but unheard of and the existence of creatures known as the Others has yet to be proven. In the end, one woman will face her fears to stand and fight. Gina Santiago is a member of an elite tactical team in charge of protecting the world. She’s devoted her life to apprehending the most heinous criminals that prey on society – and now she’s after the worst one yet. On her own, with no backup, the trail takes her to a dusty, tight-knit town on the fringes of society, where everyone’s a suspect. Even the sexy sheriff, Morgan Hunter, isn’t telling her everything. The closer Gina comes to finding out the secret of this sleepy little town and its big, bad sheriff, the more scared she gets – because she’s beginning to realise that she has a secret, too. A secret that will change her life…and make her the killer’s next prey.

This sounds terrific – me want! And there are sequels coming: Scarlet in June 2009, and Crimson in June 2009. Yay for futuristic fiction!

Speaking of which (from Leah Hultenschmidt):

AMY RENCH – Fallen Rogue, a debut novel for the SHOMI line about an Olympic swimmer whose athletic dreams are dashed when she’s accidentally injected with a top-secret serum that suddenly gives her psi powers. Now the only man she can trust is the one who’s been sent to eliminate her. Coming in Fall 2009.

Fall = September/October/November. Anyway, I’d love to get in touch with Amy Rench, but I can’t seem to find her on the Internet. But I’ve seen a photo of her with Michele Lang and Michelle Rowen/Maddox, so hopefully those ladies – or you, dear reader – will be able to find Amy for me. Just send her to https://tezmilleroz.wordpress.com and tell her to drop me a line. Please, and thank you if you can help.

You know how I get particularly silly just before bedtime? Happened again last night. I was watching the Bring Me My Hookah! gals chat about promise rings, which made me recall a particular Family Guy episode. So my brain kept giggling with the line, “Peter, what are you doing to my ear?!” Oh well, at least I went to sleep with laughs πŸ™‚
