My Review

Is it a coincidence that a weird storm forced several planes to crash land on the same island? That’s what the survivors begin to question.

And what if the island isn’t deserted? What if there’ a secret facility, guarded by armed troops?

And what of the storm. It’s not normal.  Especially when it affects your mind.

During a test, several young pilots are forced to land on a deserted island. Separated and unsure if the others survived, the teams set off to find each other.

Along the way, the separated teams encounter strangers. Some are obviously dangerous and some are questionable.

One team encounters a survivor from another crash. Not one of their group. Need to know information has them following him to find out what happened. Danger lies all around them. This stranger isn’t the only one that survived the crash. Dangerous people are roaming the island. Death lurks around every tangled path. And another storm is looming.

While I liked the young pilots. Enjoyed their dialogue, quirks, and the bit of romance that blooms, it was Rios, the stranger from the other crash, that really grabbed me.

As the groups find each other, you also meet Yale. She knows things. Things Rios and the young pilots will need to survive.

Yale also captured my interest. Her and Rios have a connection. Both are double tough, trained to kill and think on the run. I did get some background on them, but would love to know more. Crossing fingers there will be a sequel.

I did run into a few bumps in the road while reading this. A few places felt awkward and caused me to slow down. But as I got further into it, things smoothed out and I was carried away be the action and mystery.

The ending is a whirlwind. You finally get answers, and come up for air after the horrific storm that wreaks havoc.

The title is perfect for this mystery as there are many secrets to uncover. And the cover is thrilling and shows you some of the story inside.

I feel this would be a fun series and hope there are more books to follow. While it didn’t blow me away, it did keep me turning the pages, curious about what would happen and wanting those answers. I would give it three and a half stars, but I don’t do halves, and I always bump up, so I gave it four.

4 Stars



Special Agent Rios wakes up in an abandoned aeroplane. He finds himself on an unfamiliar island in the Bermuda Triangle, suffering from what appears to be amnesia. He must search for clues about his identity, as well as decipher the secrets of the island itself.

But will the truth be too terrifying to live with? Strangers hell-bent on murder, stranded young pilots, and signs of organized weapons trade. These things only touch the surface. What lurks in the skies above is far more sinister.

There is a strange energy high above the clouds, stewing deep within the Bermuda waters. And it grows restless. A storm is coming. A storm like no other, seeking to invade their minds. With the help of his newly acquainted team of special ops pilots, Rios must find a way to stop the storm before it destroys them…from the inside out.

  5. Rios was my favorite for sure. There was something about his character that was super intriguing. Maybe it’s because he didn’t remember anything that made him more interesting. 😉 Thanks so much for hosting a tour stop and reviewing this one!
