Fallen Comrade (Project Morpheus Book 1)


Jake Zimmerman has been fighting his destructive urges while hiding away in the Appalachian Mountains. However, his life gets turned upside down when Kiera McNeill shows up at his doorstep at two in the morning. Kiera and her unborn child are in grave danger, and without Jake's help, she may fall prey to Lequire once they learn of her baby. However, Jake is not the safest choice in a protector due to his participation in the Morpheus project, which has left him with a destructive virus. Will the two be able to outrun the government, or will their long history and feelings for each other get in the way of their mission?

This novel is action packed and filled with nail-biting scenes as readers root for Kiera and the Morpheus team. The dialogue between them is delightful, with just the right amount of bickering, laughter, and command. It would have been nice if Kiera was more forthright about whom the father of the baby is in the beginning, despite Jake's reluctance to hear it. However, the response that the news elicits from Jake is beautiful and it aides in his desire to protect her. Jillian David has created Kiera to be a very strong and independent character, which is rather unique and wonderful to see. The romance never dwindles due to her pregnancy, and there is no tip-toeing around her. “Fallen Comrade” is filled with just the right amount of romance, action, and suspense, that lets readers experience every emotion as it happens to each character.
