My Review

They’re so cute and cuddly. No one really thinks of Pandas as bears. They are every bit as dangerous as the other kinds. Long, lethal claws. Huge teeth. And a nasty disposition when riled. So what happens when an experiment triggers a latent gene, transforming one into something primal?

It took me a bit to get to know the character’s and what their roles were. I hadn’t read the first book. Once I get my facts straight the fun began. Answering a call for their special skills, a small team arrives at a zoo to round up some escaped pandas. That’s easily accomplished. But…it’s discovered another has escaped and it ain’t no ordinary panda. It’s regressed back to it’s ancestors. A leaner, meaner, hungry bear.

The team is diverse and strange. They don’t get along but function well in the field. Guess they know to work together or die. The panda is scary. It has this neat trick that makes it especially dangerous.  Figures, doesn’t it? When will people learn to leave well enough alone.

There’s lots of fun and action and intriguing characters I want to learn more about. And I’m always looking for more killer critters. I read this straight through as it’s not that long and now I want to see what else this author has to offer. I got a peek into something called Office Zombies and it should be another fun one.

Synopsis

What’s black and white, and red all over?
Pearson Granger wanted a quiet steak for breakfast, not an impossible plateful of peril. But when tech goes rogue, duty calls.

The Aftermath, Granger’s elite team of mercenaries, is sent to a breakout at Edinburgh Zoo. It looks like an easy job. Then the nightmare begins.

To survive, they must fight suspicious scientists, international intrigue—and a very angry panda with a monstrous appetite.

With his friend in mortal danger, and tensions between Mad and Delilah threatening to tear The Aftermath apart, Granger must find the strength to face the red lab’s nightmare creation alone. Survival seems impossible.

Featuring a guest appearance by Kate Marx, the Queen of Cryptozoology.

What monster lurks under Edinburgh’s ancient streets? Just how well do Pearson and Kate know one another? Can the beast be stopped? Will Mad’s appetite destroy them all? Get Second Hunger and find out today.

Second Hunger continues The Aftermath Adventures, a fun, action-packed series of compact, punchy page-turning technothrillers.

Every story stands alone. You can read them in any order. Together, they are even better.

If you like believable characters, great locations, astonishing gadgets and page-turning plots then you’ll love spending time with Pearson Granger and his team. If you like NCIS, Michael Crichton, or The A-Team, you’ll be hooked by The Aftermath Adventures.

Fast-paced and hard to put down, you can tear through an episode in one sitting or savour the fun, mouthful by mouthful.
