Leaving Nick and Elizabeth behind at the end of Reborn, genetically-altered Chloe has only one thing on her mind: revenge. She's determined to take the Branch down, starting with the organization's merciless leader Tom Riley.
Tracking Riley to Washington, D.C., Chloe seems to be closing in on her goal with each passing hour. But just because the Branch made her virtually indestructible doesn't mean she's immune to her emotions. And when a shadow from her past appears in the unlikeliest of places, Chloe is forced to reexamine her allegiances once and for all.
Rogue Chronicles Entry
Damn! Played is definitvely the right title for this one -- although I'm not quite sure yet who played whom. Only another full-length installment could reveal the truth, since I know that Jennifer Rush loves making things appear different than they actually are. Gives me hope that there will still be more of this series!
I wouldn't have expected a story from Chloe's PoV, but it was nice. I really liked her in Reborn, she reminded me of Katniss from The Hunger Games, and her abilities and character flaws depending on her alterations intrigued me. I'm glad she got to meet up with Rook and his rebel group. That was a nice twist already, but the second one -- the one I can't possibly spoiler -- was even better. I gasped, it was so totally Rush's style, and I love it. Just... I need more. Give me more!
