Review: Unmapped

Book Review: Unmapped, by Anna Hackett, 4 stars


Former Navy SEAL and CIA agent Ronin Cooper is used to living his life in the darkness. A loner by nature, he enjoys his work at Treasure Hunter Security, stays busy on the road, and never lets anyone too close. That is until he notices a mystery redheaded woman spying on him and his colleagues. Then he finds himself sucked into a dangerous rescue mission to Antarctica with a fiery, outspoken woman who pushes every one of his buttons.
Peri Butler will do anything to save her sister. The experienced polar guide knows the deadly black-market antiquities ring, Silk Road, has her twin, but Peri isn't sure who she can trust. She wants to believe Treasure Hunter Security can help, and soon finds herself facing off with the dark, intense, enigmatic Ronin.
As their mission takes them into the frigid ice and snow of Antarctica, Peri and Ronin's intense attraction generates a lot of heat. Drawn irresistibly closer, they work to track down Silk Road and Peri's sister, but what they find buried in the ice could threaten everything. Ronin will sacrifice it all to protect Peri, while she will take every risk, not only to save her sister, but to break through the protective shell around Ronin's heart.

Review: Unmapped is book six in the Treasure Hunter Security Series by Anna Hackett. I haven't read all of the other books in the series and I confess I was a bit lost in the beginning trying to identify all the characters and understand who did what. After that, the plot moves so fast, with so many twists and turns that it doesn't matter anymore, so I can safely say that the book can be read as a stand alone without major issues.

In terms of storyline and suspense I found in more consistent than other books by Ana Hackett I've read before. The romance part of the plot didn't convince me much, though. There are several rather explicit sex scenes but other than that I did not really see how Ronin and Peri could fall in love and move ahead to the whole house-in-the-suburbs-with-a-white-picket-fence-and-a-dog thing.

Still, Unmapped is a quick, gripping and fast paced book. It can be read in one sitting and it's fairly good in its genre. 

Happy Readings,
