Masked janelle stalder


Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.

New Berlin, 2040. Rebels prepare to fight against the New World Order, bent on bringing down the world’s greatest tyrant. One girl wanted nothing to do with it, content to keep her head down and make the best of this new world. That is, until she has no choice but to work with the rebels and infiltrate the NWO headquarters. Every moment she spends there puts her in danger, especially when one man, the second in command to the New World leader, continues to make his way into her every thought. She must stay focused and protect not just her mind and body, but also her heart. Will she be able to complete her task without being unmasked? Or will the one man standing in her way ruin it all?

*This book is for mature audiences due to sexual situations, violence and strong language.

***I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.***

We met Bridgette and Roman in Switch. Bridgette is Charlotte’s sister and Roman the man who became her friend in the New World Order. When we left them all, Bridgette had to secret herself into the headquarters of the NWO and that’s where this particular story picks up. BUT their story actually STARTED in Switch. This story’s focal point is theirs, even though we still get details from Charlotte and Pete.

I really liked Bridgette and Roman. Though I tried not to like him because, duh!!! He did some pretty bad things, but at heart, he was a good guy. We still have multiple POVs in this book, like in last one. And honestly, the lines are so blurred on who’s a good guy and who’s a bad guy that I’m all confuzzled. BUT one thing is certain, Douglas has been evil in both books. We also meet a whole new host of characters. And most of them are women and most of them are awesome. They kind of remind me of Gail and her brood from Frank Miller’s Sin City. Only not as gritty. I FLOVED the bunch of them. I wished I could tell you what happened or my thoughts on it. BUT I can’t, to do so would give away too much from book 1 and this book. GAH!

Ms. Stalder’s world of tyrants and those trying to get out from under their thumb is really engrossing. This is the second book in 2 days that I’ve read and I have two more to read, and I can’t wait. Especially with that last little tidbit that Roman says at the end. EEP!!!!! I can’t wait, I CAN’T WAIT!!! I don’t know how I’ve never discovered her before now, but I’m ever so glad I finally have. So would I recommend this book? DUH!!! YEAH!!! I would also recommend this series!
