“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul” ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

With ever step he took, he felt as if this time….this time would be different. This time he would definitely find her.

Nothing was going to stop her from making this date. She told herself he would be there.

Liam Stryker and Aubrey Starr….

They had forged a bond within the dark walls of pain and betrayal. They endured torture and treachery with great fortitude. And both made it their life mission to save innocents from being lost to the evil that permeates society. Mercilessly. Relentlessly. 

Two determined souls destined to be together.

Second in her Option Zero series, “Relentless” is a masterpiece of writing and narration. Christy Reece poured her heart and soul into Liam and Aubrey as she goes on this journey with them; a journey of finding each other, knowing each other and living for each other. Love is a very powerful emotion. It comes in different shapes and sizes. It’s about fate, failure, timing  and redemption. And when the time comes, these two courageous souls will have their day.

If Liam and Aubrey grace one end of the spectrum of her plot, Christy Reece’s design of a massive hive of powerful people trying to play God is another brilliant twist on the opposing end of the spectrum. A plot that most likely will be entwined into her consecutive stories and there is no dearth of imagination in her to create another brilliant and edgy story.

“Relentless” is a story of bravery and resilience, brotherhood and camaraderie, fate and destiny. It is also a tale of love and hope that solidifies the fact that when bad things happen to good people (and they do happen all the time), they can come out on the other side with grit and tenacity molding into a character of beauty.

“Bad things happen. And the human brain is especially adept at making sure that we keep track of these events. This is an adaptive mechanism important for survival. ~ David Perlmutter

And survival is important to having a purpose in life. A lucky chance that gives birth to a crusade against evil living amongst humanity.  Fear is “Merciless”. But with courage, determination and motivation, one can laugh at the very face of fear. Who better is privileged to this fact than Asher Drake and Juliet Stone

Asher Drake: The man was a demon in some people’s eyes, but in others he was a hero.

Juliet Stone: She was no neophyte. She was a professional and knew how to play the game. She had secrets.

And both would go beyond their endurance to mete out justice and protect their own.

Merciless-OptionZero#1-Feb2020

Christy Reece’s new series, Option Zero, introduces the “Merciless” players, bonded over death, bravery and survival. A life of pain and loss, betrayal and treachery, brotherly bond, love and loyalty created these warriors. As they put their lives between the innocent and evil, fighting for justice fo the innocent with zero option, they still get lucky in love as they tread a merciless path to justice.

A resounding start to a new series, Christy Reece shows her mastery of plotting a story that keeps the readers spellbinding. Unlike her other series with so much action (which totally is enthralling), I love the fact that she had paced her story so very well as she draws the characters out of their shell. There is sublime action in the background, with emotions and characterization taking precedence, yet none of it taking away the intensity of the plot. As she introduces the players, the story still revolves around Asher Drake and Jules Stone. As she sets the stage for the main plot to continue into future stories, she never loses sight of the significant flow of events surrounding Ash and Jules. Even her choice of names has a subtle symbolism adding an element of aura to the story.

Having read every single book of hers published thus far, there are so many subtle nuances that only made Christy’s narration so much more intriguing, the twists and surprises added flavor and spice to the plot, and the characterization and depth of the plot added layers of masterful imagination!

I cannot wait to follow these “Merciless” warriors on their trials and tribulations and to a path of love and justice.
