Review: Unthinkable - Book #1 Beyond Human Series - Nina Croft - September 2016
Once upon a time there was a tribe discovered in Africa back in the late 1800's by Malcolm Rayleigh. He brought them back with him to a compound in Scotland , over the years the male generation of Rayleigh's took the Tribe under their wing with the most recent being Martin Rayleigh. The Tribe as they were called helped the US Government as most of them had telepathic skills and were above intelligent and beyond what the normal humans were capable of. This worked well until recently and now the Tribe members are being hunted along with those who were in charge of the tribe committee. Jake Callahan is the oldest of the Tribe members and is their leader and now he wants answers into why his friends and he are being targeted . He sees that the only one who can give him answers is the guy known as "The Colonel". The thing is he isn't talking, well not yet anyway. Jake kidnaps his daughter Christa to use as a bargaining chip , but all is not what it seems as Jake is falling for Christa and vice versa though she claims it's merely a case of Stockholm Syndrome. What will happen though when Christa's true background is revealed ? I have to say the first 1/2 - 1/3 of Unthinkable was quite action-packed and then took a turn of romance in the air for a few characters especially Jake and Christa - who btw Jake Callahan is now being added to my list of Book Boyfriends. The last part of this book and the ending OMFG I so did not see the entire twist coming , I did have a inkling about the original tribe members but that last page. Readers be prepared for a shock and a cliffhanger ending. The other thing that attracted me to this book was the fact that it has an Academic Geek Lit angle with Christa and her science background which I loved. With the way Unthinkable ended, I am now looking forward to reading Book #2 in the Beyond Human Series and reading how Nina explains more about the strange object in the cliffhanger.
