Book Review: Black Rose by Alex Lukeman


Black Rose is the 9th book in The Project series by Alex Lukeman. This fast paced thrill ride picks up right after The Eye of Shiva bringing The Project and AEON back together for a final confrontation. Assassinations, an incurable plague, and control of the world are just some of the things you'll find along with a well running theme of Selena Connor's background story. Things are really starting to heat up!

Amazon book description:
A lethal plague resurrected from the bones of the dead is stolen from a secret biological warfare lab hidden in the mountains of North Korea. There's no cure and it's one hundred percent fatal. If it gets loose, millions will die. The men who have it want to reduce the world's population and bring down the global economy as part of a plan to establish world dominance.
Nick Carter and Selena Connor of the Project are up against their old nemesis, a centuries old conspiracy called AEON. This time, Director Elizabeth Harker is determined to eliminate AEON once and for all. It's touch and go as events build toward the final confrontation, with no certainty that things will turn out well. Along the way, dark secrets from Selena's past come to light. The Project team takes on another dangerous mission, with no guarantee that any of them will survive. 
Black Rose keeps up the pace that Alex Lukeman has set in the previous books and has the team moving from the US to Europe to South America and then back again. There are secrets that are finally revealed, new revelations that will continue the story on to who knows where, and a shake up within the team. I am pumped for the 10th book because I can't wait to see where this goes. While I love the missions that The Project go on and the interesting events that seems to happen to them, I am really enjoying the continuing story line and unexpected twists in the lives of Selena and Nick. We get to learn a bit about some of the others (more on Stephanie, please!) but it's obvious that Selena and Nick are the main characters and the twists and turns they encounter really bring this series to life. This is definitely a must read.



I received a complimentary copy of Black Rose from Alex Lukeman for beta reading. This review isn't required but it's something I like to do. The opinions in this review are mine alone and from my own personal viewpoint.
