Romance Book Review: Olivia Starke's Project Terminal: Legacy
Author: Olivia Starke
Series Connection: Project Terminal
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Publisher: Beachwalk Press
All Laura wanted to do was finish closing her small town restaurant and go home to her comfy bed, but fate had other plans. While throwing away the restaurant garbage in the back alley a creature attacks her. Okay not a creature, but a zombie. And now she's been kidnaps by a handsome man who tells her this incredible story about how she's going to die in twelve hour and then turn into a zombie.
Damian has seen it before. A human gets bit by a zombie and they turn into the walking dead, set out to kill whoever they can get their hands on. And it is all the fault of a government agency after creating a supersolider. Damian's job is to kill all the zombies before the world finds out, but he can't just kill the beautiful Laura. He doesn't know why, but she's a fighter and he can't kill that spirit. Not until he absolutely has too.
But that moment never comes. Laura doesn't die. Something about her keeps her alive and Damian can't let her turn into a human test tube, so he takes her on the run and hopes he can keep her safe from his bosses.
Lots of action and strong willed heroine and ruggedly sexy hero and heroine make up this well written sci-fi romance. This is just the first in a new series that is starting off really well. Should be interesting to check out future books to come.
Zombies and super soldiers? Laura is the one hope for a world gone Hollywood crazy.
In only a matter of hours Laura Swift has been bitten by a zombie, rescued by Mr. Tall, Dark, and Foreboding, and thrown into a world gone Hollywood crazy. She has no choice but to follow Damian into his underworld of manipulated viruses and genetically altered super soldiers. Even as her life hangs in the balance, she can't deny the attraction she feels for the incredibly sexy and thoroughly imposing Infantryman.
Damian Gonsalves believes he has a cure for the virus changing innocent people into bloodthirsty undead. Within Laura is the key to stopping the horrific plague. All he has to do is keep her alive and safe, and stay one step ahead of those pursuing them. Her stubbornness frustrates him to no end, while her body drives him to distraction.
When they discover the secret behind Project Terminal, will they survive long enough to help stop the unleashed horror? Or will they just be two more victims of a virus threatening all of humanity?
