    A good suspenseful action thriller

    This is an action thriller that certainly attested to its genre. When I was reading Winter Rising, it was like I was watching an action movie that had mystery, action, and white-knuckling suspense. The prologue immediately gave me the chills. With that being said, the suspense seemed to dip after that as I discovered this it is definitely not a standalone book. I, unfortunately, did not get to read the first book of the Winter Series before reading this one. And so, throughout the story, there were many occurrences where Winter refers to people and alludes to previous happenings with those particular people without providing any context surrounding it. I felt a bit lost at times and there was a lack of character development at the beginning that I am sure was covered in the first novel. The story, however, does pick up and gets super interesting in the last third of the novel, which includes a lot more action and relationship connections that were lacking in the first two-thirds. As it progressed, I began to really enjoy reading it. A good thriller novel, but it lost a couple of stars for not providing the necessary content when referencing previous people and events.

    Race to save civilization: go, Winter!😳

    💓Heart-pounding danger with a female James Bond😲 Total adrenaline fest! Just as lightning-paced as Winter Dark, I adore agent Winter and this resumption of her scary exploits. This loner operative could be unlikable, but author Alex Callister has given her heroine her soft side, in her unstoppable attraction to Alek, the Dark Prince who heads a global criminal network; her mentorship of two young, unlikely recruits; or her sympathy for Lucy and subsequent victims of Alek's most senior and cruel assassins. Winter is a consummate hard-bodied fighting machine with a heart. In this second book in the series the world is in turmoil with revolt, lawlessness and violence taking over in a perceived power vacuum. As the world's key leaders prepare for a meeting to address the problem, Winter gets drawn into a web of seemingly unrelated events with the Guardsman, one of crimelord Alek's principal contract killers, constantly involved. Something supremely bad is going down and Winter's determined to prevent it. Once again, Winter is changing identities and moving country to country meeting shady characters along the way. I have to admit that I, like Winter, was totally surprised by the Guardsman's identity when they finally meet. But the climatic fight scene was worth the wait. In fact, I read until I neared the climax and then put the book aside for a day because I did not want the story to end! The writing is top-notch and I would put Callister's action series against the best in the genre -- Jack Ryan, move over! Thanks to publisher Bookouture and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review and the opinions expressed are my own.

    Winter Rising

    Fabulous, non-stop action kept me glued to the very end. There is nothing predictable in this story. Winter could be better than Jack Reacher. Can not wait for the next book!

    Edge of the seat beginning to end!

    Winter Rising by Alex Callister The Winter Series #2 On the edge of my seat from beginning to end! This story grabbed my attention and held it from beginning to end. Winter is a superb main character that I am eager to read more about as soon as the next book is ready! What I liked: * Winter: smart, brave, exceptional in all that she does, able to hold her own in a fight and almost anywhere else. She is a woman to admire, fear and find out more about. I wonder if SHE believes there is one right person for HER… * Alek: The bad guy that holds the world in his hand and has intrigued Winter – I want to hear more about him * The two youth she has taken on and how they follow her a bit like ducklings imprinted on her * Simon: The quartermaster there for her when she needs him * The plot, writing and pace of this story * That not all expected to be on the side of right are and on the flip side…not all that are expected to be evil are without a soul * The chess game played out on the board of this story * The mysteries solved * That the evil were truly evil, remorseless, and nasty people that deserved to be taken down * Winter’s “other face” * Written down as I read: complex, taut, lone wolf, impulsive, traps within traps, brash, interesting, intriguing and more * Not knowing who to trust * The twists, turns and surprises * Trying to figure out what the implication of 12 and all the ramifications it would have in this story * Wondering how it will all play out What I did not like: * The loss of innocents * The truly evil people unveiled…so deserved what they got Did I enjoy this book? My – oh MY – I surely did! Would I read more in this series? As soon as I can! Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
