The Cold Between: A Central Corps Novel
Surprisingly out of character, Elena Shaw connects with and takes a man home while on shore leave. Elena is shocked to discover her crew mate, Danny, was murdered during the night. The culprit is the very man she spent the night with—obviously a frame job. Elena and Trey, a retired PSI captain go rogue to find the real killer. Before long they’re embroiled in a mystery involving corrupt governments, power hungry psychopaths, and the aftermath of a horrific accident.
The Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel is the first book in the Central Corps series. Bonesteel hit it out of the park with this one. It masterfully balances sci-fi, adventure, mystery, and heady romance. The characterization is stellar—pun intended. Elena and Trey’s romance blossoms and staggers under the weight of everything thrown against them. Even secondary characters are fully fleshed out. The world building pushes the story to greater heights, slowly teasing out details about the Central Corps, the PSI, and the main characters themselves.
Simply put, this is an incredible start to the series, and everyone will find something to love here. Bonesteel sets a wonderful stage with dynamic characters and a well-paced plot. Read it.
