Very quick, enjoyable read." Amazon review. This novella is book #2 in the bestselling Brooke Kinley Adventures series. The first title in the series, "Patriot", reached no.1 in the fiction charts on both sides of the Atlantic and won several awards.
Heroine is one of the best novellas I have ever read. I'm very impressed with Ms. Bond's writing. It keeps you on your toes and you're hit with adventure after adventure. The writing is so lively that it feels like you can visualize every single thing happening. I find that novellas or prequels are slow paced, very texted heavy, informative, but Heroine is basically the opposite. The story is very faced pace, it blew me away how drawn in I was. I'm very impressed with the overall story, seeing that it involved two complex countries and a killer plot. Overall I give Heroine five stars!
