Book Review: Forged in Fire by Trish McCallan

forged in fireBeth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions until she dreams a sexy stranger is gunned down during the brutal hijacking of a commercial airliner. When events in her dream start coming true, she heads to the flight’s departure gate. To her shock, she recognizes the man she’d watched die the night before.

Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters comes from a bloodline of elite warriors with psychic abilities. When Zane and two of his platoon buddies arrive at Sea-Tac Airport, he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses. Then she arrives—a leggy blonde who sets off a different kind of alarm.

As Beth teams up with Zane, they discover the hijacking is the first step in a secret cartel’s deadly global agenda and that key personnel within the FBI are compromised. To survive the forces mobilizing against them, Beth will need to open herself to a psychic connection with the sexy SEAL who claims to be her soul mate.

Picked up as a freebie ebook whilst on offer on Amazon.

This has a decent premise, that is set up and executed well, with multiple narrators (including some of the terrorists). Zane is travelling with two of his SEAL team mates to get a bit of R&R, when he realises that something is about to happen on the flight he is about to board. His fellow SEALs put it down to the extended time without a holiday, but when Beth arrives in the terminal – having taken a last minute decision to join the flight due to too many coincidences – then they all realised that things are going to happen.

The immediate terrorist plot is stopped, but not all of those involved are apprehended, and the next few days are spent tracking down the others involved. This is the first in the series I believe, but it’s set up well, and there are enough loose threads to warrant subsequent books. There’s a nice angle on the sex content, where there’s a “proper” telepathic link between the two adults, which can lead to some interesting scenes together!

It has it’s moments linked in reality – it’s not all sweetness and light, and there isn’t a total “happy ending” (with some matters to be resolved etc), but on the whole it ends satisfactorily.
