Rogue Alliance . Michelle Bellon


Rogue Alliance (The Rogue Saga)





Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.


So, I liked the sound of this, but for some odd reason I had it in my head it was paranormal. So of course on reading I was expecting vampires or something, but the closest we get is Brennan, who’s escaped from a “clinic” where he’s been held for years, genetically modified and undergone some horrific treatments. That’s my fault though for not reading the description properly! My bad… Nevertheless it was still an interesting and fascinating read.


I kept thinking of all the awful things poor Brennan had endured in the clinic, and what about others still in the complex? Even though his rescuer is a vicious crime-lord Brennan feels a debt of honour to him, and works to protect him. His enhanced strength and abilities are why Victor rescued him, feeling that he’d make the ideal bodyguard. For a while that works well but then Shyla gets involved. She’s got her own demons from the past, and her own way of coping with them – Patron often!


When things hot up with Victor and the crime scene, Shyla gets the chance to go undercover. She jumps at it, even though it means returning to her home-town where she had the atrocious childhood and consequences that still give her horrific nightmares. She’s convinced that Victor is connected to many local crimes and people, and wants the chance to prove it and help bring him down. Its a dangerous journey for her though, she has to try to get Victor interested in her and ask her out. She needs to get close to him to make everything work. While doing this and getting into danger she learns much about herself along the way, and about her method of coping. She meets Brennan while dating Victor, and sees some of his above normal abilities when they meet unexpectedly one evening. They both agree to keep quite about it for their own reasons, but she’s intrigued and tries to find out more about him. They share an attraction which each try to ignore but circumstances and danger bring them closer.


Its an interesting read, full of suspense but not in an over the top way, but in a way that feels real. I liked Brennan, his naivety about life after all that time away, his way of looking at himself as a monster, and yet wanting to be a better person. Shyla – she was just out to make the world a better place, believing that right will triumph, and she learned some hard lessons about practical justice, and how it can be evaded. I felt so sad for her, she was just trying to do right, and get on with her life but she needed to look at her past instead of just running with today – because until she did there wasn’t a way she could cope with tomorrow.


I was a bit puzzled by the ending – most of the plots were tied up neatly, but it was pretty loose about where she was going next, and what would happen to Brennan. There doesn’t seem to be more to come, but I felt a bit as though I needed more completion for them. Its priced at £3.77 for 290 pages.


Stars: four, a read that was unexpected but good.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
