I like Birch. She’s a tough chick that has learned through hard times how to survive. When she falls for Zev, I’m totally routing for them but, that romance is shattered and they separate tragically. When Zev tackles a suspect running from the hospital bombing and finds out it’s Birch, I was on the edge of my seat! There’s plenty of action and mystery. The science fiction is really well done. The romance is okay. I think more heat would have made Birch and Zev feel more intense as a couple. Some places in the story are almost as if they are over edited because scenes felt a little flat. This is a good story. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend giving Birch’s Faith a try. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!
