New to BookLikes and saving my place while I get my books in order...

Driven - Eve Silver, Eve Kenin Enjoyable, very fast- paced story. It was a bit sci-fi, a bit Mad Max, a bit Firefly (sci-fi western TV series and film), and a bit ice-road truckers all rolled into one! There wasnt a dull moment throughout with lots of action. i also found the secondary characters interesting, such as Ben the street-rat and his band of kids, Yuriko, Trey and the rebels etc. But the best part of the story is the romance...the hero is HOT, the heroine is sexy and strong....and thhere are some very steamy love scenes. This is the first book i have read by Kenin and i would definitely have a look at other books written by her.

My only criticisms would be that the ending felt a little rushed, i would have liked it to be a bit more drawn out, esp the last major action scene...and to have understood more about the sister Raina seems to be doing everything for throughout the book. Secondly the baddies were all very stereotypical and 2 dimensional. The main villain being a really nasty piece of work...however, although i do like a villain that you love to hate, i prefer baddies to have more depth, or a reason to be like they are. This guy just seemed insane...

So overall 4 stars.
