Jet is a fast paced book dealing with the heroine Jet who got out of the game in her old job as an asassian and is living a rather calm life on an island. Clearly that calm life isn’t going to last for too long as she is returned to the work that she wanted to leave, not only that but she has to use her skills, wits and cunning to keep herself alive long enough to find out who is trying to assassinate her and remove them from her life.
This book took a lot of trying to get into for me, it’s not really my cup of hot chocolate. I was hoping to find Jet to be an interesting character, to have a strong background yet instead I find her rather like a Mary-Sue – she is pretty much a perfect character, with the faults of being unable to get close to people ect, yet she gets along with people, she’s perfect at fighting, she’s got a tragic background – which is the reason why she is so good at fighting. Yet the author states that she prefers to work alone than in a team, that she prefers control – which could have been explored more in the book than what it was.
Also there was Jet’s lover, who is meant to be rather serious and professional, yet further along in the book we find him cracking jokes and being rather human – yet Jet had stated that he wasn’t like that, that he was rather cool – not cold – and serious and his job was his life ect. Yet it seemed like he was probably one of the most human characters in the book.
There was a lot of twists and turns in this book, although it did drag on a long time. It was very similar to [book:The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|2429135] yet I found this book was lacking in something, Jet just wasn’t a character you could connect with because she was that good at EVERYTHING she did.
It would be a good read to people who liked Bourne series would probably like this, since it has a fair bit of action in there.
