Title: Operation: Jade Helmet Author: Ashley Fontainne Genre: Christian Fiction/Suspense/Futuristic My rating:3 of 5 stars
Not gonna lie; this book’s not my cup of tea. I read the blurb going in, and I thought it would be some great techno-thriller. At thirty percent, I was still waiting for the blurb story to kick in. I feel a little like I was ripped off.
Operation: Jade Helmet is a big story told in small snippets of times in different locations. It’s meant to encompass a global event, the end of times. We were warned, through all sorts of worldwide chaos, Global warming, and talks of one government to rule us all. Good and evil are amassing their armies, and the fight is here.
Warlord Wulf thought nothing could be worse than being tortured and contaminated by the Hive. That was before he’s ordered to transport to Earth and represent The Colony in an unfamiliar horror… a human reality show. The Bachelor Beast is the hottest new program on Earth, but being set up with two dozen clingy females is not his idea of a good time. When his Beast refuses to show the slightest interest in any of the show’s potential mates, he knows he must choose one or die due to his raging mating fever.
His Beast prefers execution to claiming anyone but his true mate. Wulf is resigned to his fate, a one-way trip to Atlan, a prison cell and execution. It is the only honorable thing left to do.
Until one glance, one sweet, feminine scent lingering in the air and his beast rages for a female who is not supposed to be his.
But try telling that to his Beast when his entire body transforms on live television and one simple word thunders from his lips…MINE.
You have those reads where they are great–BUT! This book has a BUT in it, and I think it’s what doesn’t work for me.
Athena Vosh is an average nineteen-year-old girl struggling with things like her relationship with her girlfriend Nomi and getting her art displayed in a gallery. She treats her mother well, and she’s an exemplary citizen.
She hides the fact that she is fascinated with the idea of bringing back men; since most seem to believe that the Y-Fever was a good thing, and society is better for it now, as a sisterhood. Athena keeps her drawings of the male form from the eyes of everyone, including Nomi. That is until her dreams become enigmatic and prophetic and lead her to the Core, their world’s great processor of information and database–who leaves her with more questions than answers.
