This was another thrilling chapter of the UltraSecurity series and it can be read as a standalone because the author was kind enough to fill in any potential blanks you may have.
On the heels of Raven and Surefire rescuing the world from near disaster, Oracle has taken a break from her psychic abilities. Her rest was almost over before it could really begin when she's called to help on a case involving a new drug that had disturbing side effects. This case ties in with Pax's mission to defeat an This was another thrilling chapter of the UltraSecurity series and it can be read as a standalone because the author was kind enough to fill in any potential blanks you may have.
This case ties in with Pax's mission to defeat another threat to man and transhuman kind - she goes by the name of Dama X and she's the leader of a Mexican cartel. Oracle has discovered a new strength to her power which only serves to complicate matters even further. To quote the author: "Super powers, romance, demi-gods, and unexpected twists Oracle and Pax were easy to like and they both had me on the edge of my seat as they worked together and separately to right wrongs, figure out what was really going on, and found a way to resolve the issues the world faced.
In the midst of the action and the supernatural, the love between these characters was somehow always felt and I appreciated the weight their feelings were given when it came to the choices they each had to make. This author easily sucked me in, once again, into this world of humans with super powers. Now that UltraSecurity has a new ally and there seems to be a better understanding of the skulls, I can't wait to see what's in store for these agents.
I wouldn't mind seeing more of Raven. View all 17 comments.
This is the second book in this series, but you really don't need to read the first book to know what is going on, the author does a great job filling in as the story is happening. I found this book different than most Sci-Fi books. There is no weird looking monster breathing fire and flying around killing people. The monsters in this story are just filled with corrupt human beings who are out to use the transhumans that have special powers.
Some of the transhumans you meet in this story have sup This is the second book in this series, but you really don't need to read the first book to know what is going on, the author does a great job filling in as the story is happening.

Oracle has noticed her powers have changed and become unstable and tries to hide it from the team at UltraSecurity, especially Pax, fearing that he will have her removed from this important case to her to help save her team members that have gone missing. All the team members that are on this case know that they can become victims as this case gets more and more involved in trying to find out what happened to UltraAgents Surefire and Raven. Oracle and Pax as they try to solve their case, people they have known and worked with before once at UltraSecurity seemed to changed for the worst as they want the powers to control the universe like demi-gods.
Plus, they still have to hunt down Dama X who is hiding in Mexico, who may be the one who has the most control over what is happening to their case than what they truly know as they work on solving this case and save the ones that have become victims of the gender-bending crime before it is too late to save them.
Review of Last Impressions (The Marnie Baranuik Files, #3), by A. J. Aalto
Oct 04, Sarah Leenart rated it it was amazing. I absolutely adored the previous 2 instalments in this series and this episode most certainly did not disappoint. There is something really special about these books and I'd quite like to get on the rooftops and shout it out there! The entire book just swept me aw Wow!
Manual A Surefire Way (UltraSecurity Series Book 1)
The entire book just swept me away and had me up at night, thinking about it every moment I wasn't reading and makes me want to give the author the biggest hug ever. This is what reading is all about, it just doesn't get any better. May 04, Karen Corkran rated it it was amazing. With Whedon-style banter, JT Bock assembles a world filled with transhuman superheroes who are amazing because they are so very human. Pax has some anger management issues and yeah, he's broken his desk once or twice. That's nothing compared to a bad break-up with his oh so ex-girlfriend Oracle.
Problem is, they are still working together and this next mission goes south fast. Soon a rescue is needed, so Oracle sets off to save Pax before he becomes a damsel in distress. Oracle's telep With Whedon-style banter, JT Bock assembles a world filled with transhuman superheroes who are amazing because they are so very human.
Oracle's telepathic powers spike. She can reach further into other people's minds--she can control them in ways she never imagined--but she is losing control of herself. She is going to need to take a leap of faith and hope her friends can keep up with her if they are going to stop Dama X. But then again--should Dama X be stopped? When no one is who they seem to be--who are your friends and who are your enemies? Rachel Skinner rated it it was amazing Aug 01, Linsey rated it it was ok Mar 01, May 03, GrnEyed rated it really liked it Shelves: adventure , sci-fi , romance , thought-provoking , crime.
Bock writes a book that is fast-paced, entertaining, thought-provoking and a bit bizarre. I found what the drug in the story does to men, bizarre, frightening, and countless other words I choose not to list. The characters, with respect to their personalities are very believable. The special powers they possess are fascinating, and in some cases, a tad creepy. I enjoyed the interactions between Pax and Oracle. Honestly I just enjoyed Oracle in general.
She was strong, smart, powerful and endearing amongst other things. This story is far more than your basic Sci-Fi book. There is action, adventure, humor, romance, violence, and one twist after another. Just when I thought I had everything figured out J. Bock throws a new twist at her readers. Despite the fact I found part of this book extremely bizarre, overall this was a great read.
I may have to read the first book in this series to get a full picture of all the characters.

Well I was intrigued because the author wanted to be Indiana Jones or James Bond as a child… me too only I was a little older than a child, but you get the idea. So this book really spoke to that part of me. The heroine is uber powerful with skills that would put James Bond to shame. My kind of woman. I always hate the scenes in the movies where the woman gets all helpless and needs a big strong man to rescue her.
What a crock.
