Blood Echo (Burning Girl, #2) by Christopher Rice

Title: Blood Echo
Author: Christopher Rice
Series: Burning Girl
Genre: Suspense, Thriller
Format: Hardcover
No. of Pages: 355
Date of Publication: February 1, 2019

Description: Kidnapped and raised by serial killers, Charlotte Rowe suffered an ordeal that made her infamous. Everyone in the world knew who she was. But no one in the world has any idea what she’s become…

Charlotte is an experiment. And a weapon. Enabled by a superpower drug, she’s partnered with a shadowy pharmaceutical company to hunt down and eliminate society’s most depraved human predators. But her latest mission goes off the rails in a horrifying way. Unsettled by her own capacity for violence, Charlotte wants some time to retreat so she can work on her new relationship with Luke, a sheriff’s deputy in the isolated Central California town she now calls home.

If only the threats hadn’t followed Charlotte there.

Something sinister is evolving in Altamira, California—a massive network of domestic terrorists with ties to Charlotte’s influential and corrupt employers. As a vast and explosive criminal conspiracy grows, the fate of Charlotte’s hometown hangs in the balance. With everyone she cares about in danger, Charlotte has no choice but to bring her powers home.

Charlotte Rowe has been triggered, and now she’ll have to take matters into her own powerful hands.

My Thoughts: This is the first book that I have read by Christopher Rice. Even though this is the second book in the Burning Girl series, I found it still easy to follow without having read the first book first.

Charlotte Rowe is a very intriguing character and truly adds to the story that is unfolding. As the story progresses you learn more about her and her abilities.

The first few chapters of the book was hard to get into but as the story progressed it got better. Eventually I struggled to put the book down.

Christopher Rice does a nice job at creating suspense and intrigue. The characters are well written. I am still unsure about Charlotte Rowe's boss and if he is an antagonist in this series or not.
