Review: Forged In Fire – Trish McCallan
While waiting for the flight that would take him and his friends to Hawaii for a wedding, Zane Winters experiences a vision that rocks his entire world. A vision he hopes to keep from coming true. While his psychic abilities have never failed him, he also knows that things can sometimes go awry depending on the outcome of certain events.
When a leggy blonde crosses his path, Zane’s instincts are thrown into limbo. Every part of him clamors to make her his, something he’s never experienced until now. Yet this fact doesn’t exactly deter him from what he needs to do. Realizing that she’s a key witness to the events that have been set into motion, even if he can’t quite understand how that came about, his protective instincts make him all the more determined to keep her by his side.
Recognizing the men that she saw within her dreams, Beth Brown begins to wonder if their being at the airport at the same is more than just a coincidence. While she’s never believed in premonitions, she knows that something has brought her and Zane together when the things she’s dreamt of begin to come true. She also has a hard time denying the fact that she’s very much attracted to him.
As she and his group band together to thwart the hijacker’s plans, they inadvertently set into motion a chain reaction of events that leave them all wondering whether they’ll make it out alive. Even more disturbing is the fact that someone seems to know what they’ll do next. Despite this, they’re determined to do their best to keep the terrorists from achieving their goal, while trying to keep all the innocent souls involved safe.
I was hooked from the moment I started reading. Totally loved how Trish made the action and suspense flow throughout the book. I know that some have said that they felt the romance aspect of the book left a lot to desired, but in all honesty, the way she built up to that aspect made it all the more intense and so much sweeter.
This book wasn’t really about the romance, but rather about a group of friends that band together no matter what’s thrown at them at any given moment. The romance was more of a bonus. I’m looking forward to reading more of Trish’s books soon. She’s got a great flair for writing. Enjoyed it immensely!
Synopsis: Beth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions until she dreams a sexy stranger is gunned down during the brutal hijacking of a commercial airliner. When events in her dream start coming true, she heads to the flight’s departure gate.
To her shock, she recognizes the man she’d watched die the night before.
Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters comes from a bloodline of elite warriors with psychic abilities. When Zane and two of his platoon buddies arrive at Sea-Tac Airport, he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses. Then she arrives—a leggy blonde who sets off a different kind of alarm.
As Beth teams up with Zane, they discover the hijacking is the first step in a secret cartel’s deadly global agenda and that key personnel within the FBI are compromised. To survive the forces mobilizing against them, Beth will need to open herself to a psychic connection with the sexy SEAL who claims to be her soul mate.
