This third installment in the Bellator Saga starts with Gabe, Crunch, and Jones bringing the horribly broken, abused, and clinging to life Caroline to a safe house after a daring rescue. Alive, but mentally and physically scarred, Caroline must rely on others if she is to survive. She begins training, and learns how to fight, as she prepares herself for an uncertain future.
Crunch is a down to earth guy who is happy to help, while Gabe is the natural leader of the group. Jones, a former convict who shares a complicated history with Caroline, has his own motivations for helping her. And as she prepares herself for what is to come she begins a new life, with a new identity.
Now, as Diana Marie Pascal, she must find a way to move forward. Complete with colored contacts and a drastic hair change, she has a cover. But flashbacks continue to haunt her. A budding romance begins to develop. But after losing loved ones she is guarded, and continues to struggle. As the group seeks out a possible rebellion cell in San Diego, she is shocked when she discovers the identity of the leader...
This is a fantastic story, with fully developed characters, and plenty of action. Romantic elements compliment the plot, and the pacing is superb. While book two had some cringe-worthy violent scenes, this third installment was much less jarring. Still, there was plenty of suspense, and a realistic unfolding of events. The slow-build up to romance was very well done! Set in a futuristic world, the possibilities are frightening, and the story gripping! Reading this series, it's easy to feel fully invested in Caroline's world. And I won't rest until I read the last book!
