As a critical care and emergency nurse, Jordyn Redwood has inside knowledge into the medical world.  In Peril, she combines both futuristic medical possibilities with the realities of those suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). 
The book began very slowly as Jordyn laid the foundation of the three seemingly separate storylines - sexual assault, an infant's death, and experimental research .  As you continue on, the storylines begin to find common ground.  At this point, the plot and action take off!  Add in some psychological twists and turns, and you have  a very well-written novel.  A novel I did not want to put down!
Although this is the third in the Bloodline Trilogy, I did not feel lost in Peril because I had not read the first two books - Proof (1) and Poison (2). 
Jordyn Redwood has opened the door to many conversations.  Is it ethical to use fetal cells?  If so, when should it be harvested?  How does ethics fit into the equation?  Who decides what is moral or amoral?  This novel is so much more than just a good read.  It gives the reader some meaty issues to consider.  Well done!
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I received a complimentary copy of Peril from Kregel Publishers for my honest review.
