TERA’S 3.75 Star REVIEW
This book was definitely a nice change of pace. I can’t say I’ve read a romantic suspense set in the USSR in 1986. It was actually more interesting in the Chernobyl conspiracy fiction portion than the actual romance part. To be completely honest, I don’t know a whole lot about Chernobyl because it happened the year I was born and my history classes never seemed to get that far. To say that this story sparked my interest was an understatement. I ended up googling all sorts of things about Chernobyl.
The first 30% of this book is a bit slow. The writing was good; however, so I continued to read it and I’m glad (despite the book being in third person!!!). Although there really wasn’t much to like about Allana, and I believe that was intentional, I actually really loved Vasy. I think he was an incredibly well-written character. It was also easy to sympathize with Allana at the end after all she goes through. I thought the intimate scenes felt a little forced just because of where the story goes. It ended up being well put together with the epilogue.
This was the first book I read by Morgan Parker and won’t be the last. I look forward to seeing what else she has to offer.

About Morgan Parker
Author Bio: As the author of the best-selling mystery romance, Surviving Goodbye, Morgan Parker has written several other novels under this pen name. In 2012 and 2013, he self-published Textual Encounters and Textual Encounters: 2, respectively. As a result of the interest in these two stories, he wrote non friction, an unconventional love story. That love story earned Mr. Parker a tremendous amount of attention and at the insistence of his readers, he followed it with Hope (a novella) and Sick Day. All three of those stories have spent time on Amazon best-seller lists.
When not writing, Morgan likes to spend time gathering story material from his two young children, rereading books by Colin Harrison, and napping where he discovered the Type II Sleep State, which is the topic for an untitled trilogy to be released in late-2016.
