This series is addicting! I can’t stop and this book was such a cool addition.
Diving into Director Hunter’s story, we see him fascinated with the Chimera, a greek mythological creature, since high school. This creature is known to have been defeated by Bellerophon, and being a sibling of Orthrus and many others.
As we go into Director Hunter’s mind, his head swirling with thoughts of his love for his team, his old high school memories, his faults and successes, we’re able to see just what happened when Director Hunter was taken from the team by Orthrus.
Director Hunter was such an interesting character to follow in this book. I’d always wondered what exactly his story was, especially with the reveal that he’s still alive in The Serpents Tail, following Clark’s point of view.
I feel like Director Hunter is exactly the kind of father figure or mentor that Project Chimera needs. He’s a steady person and always thinks things through. He also really cares about his team which is amazing. He knows their strengths and weaknesses and how to play it to their advantage as well as what to do to keep them happy.
He’s a really well written character and this book gives us a lot of insight into who he is and his significance in the main storyline.
The main setting for this book is Nexus headquarters, and it’s a pretty standard place, but the thing that really made me excited was their training room.
Director Hunter was able to turn the training room into a simulation of one of their missions. He mentioned that you can hear, see, and even smell the same things as the mission, which is super cool!
As usual, Steele writes an easy to read story. I was hooked, once again, by the first line of the book and I couldn’t put it down. It was a great development to the overall plotline and I feel like it was the perfect place for the book to happen too.
This short series is actually taking over my life. I can’t stop reading this! I’m loving all the supernatural abilities, I’m loving these characters, I’m just loving it. If you’re a fan of sci-fi, or superheroes, or characters with powers, this is just a must-read for you.
