Hotshot pilot Leo Eddowes is afraid of nothing and no one. So when she’s asked to evacuate a man from the wilds of Alaska, she doesn’t hesitate. But with enemies in close pursuit and the weather turning sour, what should have been a simple mission quickly shifts to disaster.
And there’s only one way out.
When Elias Thorne disappeared, he was America’s most wanted. Now he’s spent more than a decade in one of the most remote places on earth, guarding a dangerous secret. Leo’s arrival, quickly followed by a team of expert hunters, leaves him no choice but to join forces with her—and run. Neither is prepared for their reluctant partnership to flare into something as wild and untamed as the frozen world around them…but as desperately cold days melt into scorchingly hot nights, Leo and Elias must learn to dig deep, trust in each other, and forge a bond as strong as the forces of nature.
Stranded together in a frozen wilderness,
There’s nowhere left to run…
There’s nothing I enjoy more than a romantic thriller based in a snowy, treacherous area, and after thoroughly enjoying Whiteout (book one in the Survival Instincts series), I was so excited to read its sequel, Uncharted!
Adriana Anders knows how to write a well-paced book that left me both breathless with suspense and yet completely in the moment. The readers are immediately introduced to the hero and heroine as they begin their journey, and the sense of urgency that comes with that journey.
Uncharted is action, suspense, and danger galore but also has many sweet moments that kept me, as the reader, grounded in the story. I adored Elias’s gruff persona and Leo’s badass-ery! These are two characters that are so perfectly suited to each other as they battle everything that gets thrown their way.
I will also mention that although I personally think this could be read as a standalone, I think it would be much easier to follow if you read the series in order. There is enough explanation to get the general gist of the overarching plot in this series but Whiteout (book one) has more information that will make the events in this book clearer. Overall, I found this to be another great addition to the Survival Instincts series and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the series unfolds.
