Book Review - ROGUE AGENT by KELLIE WALLACE
I loved the sound of this book. Set in the future, and a sort of killer, it had the mystery aspect also, so I was excited to read it. A few key phrases in the description stood out to me. Assassin, futuristic hitman and falling for his mark, sounds like it’s would be a perfect book!
I like Seth. From the start of the book he is a jerk, but his morals start to resurface as the story goes and he turns into a good guy.
Terra was pretty awesome. She had this whole other side that we see Brad Akley throughout the story. She was hard core at times, for a lack of better words.
The plot was very interesting. I like to the suspense aspect and the action that was in twined in the story. The setting was well mapped out and with the place jumping and even the scenes with the time travel, it was very interesting.
There were things that didn’t work for me. The third point of view, made it very hard for me to connect with the characters. I couldn’t feel the romance aspect of the story, and it was a lot of different people that we were seeing and it became a lot trying to remember who was who and who we should trust and stuff.
Overall. I liked the idea of the story. I like the future setting and there were quite a few scenes that I really liked. But because of the fact that I couldn’t connect with the characters, I can only give it 3 stars I would be willing to read other books by this author in the future.
