Peril by Jordyn Redwood

Peril (Bloodline Trilogy #3)
Peril by Jordyn Redwood

Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.

An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.

The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves’s daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren’t revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.

This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today’s headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?

My Take:  This was an exalt book.  Even though it was the last of a trilogy it can be read alone but if you are like me you will want to go back to the other books to see what you missed.  This book takes some of the hot topics of brain stem research and brings it to the forefront of just how some of this research could affect the lives of so many different people.  Not only the people who it is suppose to help but also the people who are subjects for tests and just when do you draw the line.  Great on the edge of your seat wow this could actually happen today book. 

I was sent a review copy of this book from Kregel in exchange for my honest opinion.
