Since being discovered as Soulless, Nadia has become a target for both terrorist groups and government corporations. Now, her only hope for survival rests in the hands of the man sent out to kill her: Diesel, the Mad Dog terrorist.
Diesel is determined to free himself of the never ending curse of reincarnation and the haunting memories that plague his mind. But when his search leads him to Nadia, a greater desire stills him from taking her life.
Unable to see into Diesel’s cracking mind, Nadia instead puts her faith into his strength, fueled by eleven generations of unmatched rage and insanity. Their tight-rope relationship balances the two between life and death, love and rage, trust and betrayal.
Tension pulls at the hems of their dangerous companionship, and as time runs out all madmen must eventually make their choice.
Book two of the thrilling Immortal Gene series dives deeper into the danger of trusting your heart over your head.

I thought the first book was intense but heck this sequel beats the first book by a lot! I mean, the action and battle for survival was just constantly present throughout the whole story. There was only one small moment where I thought that there was a resemblance of peace but of course that quickly vanishes in the next scene in the plot. There is a great quote from Nadia “Stabbed. Beaten. Drugged. Shot. Drowned. Choked. My will to survive continues to surprise even myself.”, and I have to agree, her still being alive surprises even me. In fact, how they didn’t both ended up being dead is still a huge mystery to me.
Anyway, what I loved about this story was the plot and how it continues and evolves in comparison to the first book. In the first book we get to know the broken world these people have to live in but in this sequel it’s all about how to make a better world, how to find the cure and yet again how to not get killed while doing all that. There are many foes, even ones that turn in the end to allies. Also, there were some character I was actually really glad they died because they were really just scum that needed to be put down. As for Nadia and Diesel, I loved them together. They are an unusual pair, one the couldn’t be more different from the other but somehow that works for them. We get to see the more darker and twisted side and also the gentler side of both of them. Also to see a small fragment of Diesels horrible past, that was so touching. I think that made me understand him more.
The plot thickens and we get some amazing answers in this story but the big twist at the end makes me want to read the final third book ASAP! I can’t believe how the author chose to end the story, that’s so mean. But I’ll live, maybe… This is definitely a book worth reading!
