Oh Yeah! 31 Aug. 2005
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Foxfire is a secret seven-man team. Few even know they exist. Each man has chip implants so Lloyd Ryker can track them and monitor their body functions. The men share special genetic technology, still experimental. The nanotech and bio-enhancements enable them to accomplish impossible tactical work under deadly fire. Each member has particular specialties. One member, Gabriel Enrique Cruz, mastered the ability to control animals. He was receiving new training when his mind snapped. Cruz went rogue. Then the worst possible thing happened, Cruz escaped.
Inside their individual containment units, Lt. Trace O'Halloran was the first to realize something was wrong. Trace's special ability allows him to set energy nets and carry out controlled psi sweeps with his mind rather than eyes. Trace alerted his commander, Wolfe Houston, via mind link. Trace's sweep informed him that Cruz was causing the chaos. This surprises Trace and Wolfe because Cruz supposedly died over a year ago. Trace's sweep is confirmed when Lloyd Ryker pulls them out of their containment units. Only a member of Foxfire could hope to hunt down another member. Trace cannot be on this mission because his sister, Kit, is involved. So Ryker sends Wolfe in alone.
Cruz's target is in New Mexico. Kit O'Halloran is a civilian dog trainer. Kit has eleven years experience training service dogs for law enforcement and military units. Her success rate is unmatched. Currently, she has four dogs undergoing training. Kit has no clue that these dogs are special. She has never even heard of Project Home Run. And she has no idea of the genetic technology within the dogs. These four black Labrador puppies are a team in every meaning of the word. The runt, Baby, is the obvious leader. Diesel, Butch, Sundance, and Baby can communicate with each other, plan and execute strategies together, and sense things other animals could not. Cruz intends to get his hands on Kit and the dogs no matter what it takes.
Wolfe is just as determined to protect them from Cruz. Like Cruz, Wolfe has a way with animals. Wolfe's ability with animals is not as good as Cruz's though. Wolfe can also create image displacements, meaning he can cast illusions and alter the memories of others. Since Kit already knew Wolfe, it made him the perfect choice to protect them. Wolfe must not reveal too much to Kit about the himself or the dogs while protecting them. At the same time, he must locate Cruz and bring him in. It should not be too difficult for Wolfe, except that Kit is no longer the same girl he knew. She has grown up and is now a huge distraction.
***** Author Christina Skye continues her stories of battle-honed Navy SEAL members ... and this one is the best to date! Foxfire is the team sent in when all the other elite teams fail, so you can only imagine the potential waiting for Skye to access. The possibilities are unlimited. This story starts out with a bang and ends with one too. You will have no time to breathe, much less stop and cook dinner. Non-stop action from cover-to-cover. My advice to you is this: take a few vacation days from work and order a lot of pizza. You are in for one hell of a ride! *****

fast-paced romantic thriller 25 Oct. 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Foxfire top secret Navy SEAL seven-man squad were all genetically changed using experimental nanotechnology and biological enhancements. Each has their own skills, but all are monitored by Lloyd Ryker from a distance. They work incidents that are impossible for normal people to survive.

One member Lieutenant Trace O'Halloran uses his mind to make sweeps of perimeters. He notices strange activity from a teammate Gabriel Enrique Cruz, who can control animals, but apparently lost control and has gone rogue. Trace's commander Wolfe Houston is stunned because Cruz died last year. Ryker sends Wolfe to track down Cruz whose target apparently is Trace's sister Kit, a law enforcement dog trainer based in New Mexico, who is working with four special Labrador puppies that unbeknownst to her have been genetically altered so that they work strategically as a team. Cruz wants to become the leader of Baby, Diesel, Butch, and Sundance. Wolfe and Kit know each other so his assignment to capture Cruz seems easy except that his friend's baby sister is an adult that he desires with all his heart; a distraction he cannot afford if he is to protect her and the canines.

The latest Foxfire tale (see CODE NAME: NANNY and CODE NAME: PRINCESS) is a fast-paced romantic thriller that never slows down hooking the audience from the moment Trace realizes what is going on. The story line is action-packed, but the key protagonists and the canines seem genuine even with the genetic modifications. Baby the pack leading runt steals the show in many ways as fans of the series will appreciate this strong tale as Christine Skye makes her cast, human and canine, seem like real people and dogs just having extrasensory skills.

Better 5 Jan. 2006

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I used to be a die-hard Christina Skye fan--I adored "Going Overboard" and have read it more times than I can count--but her new Code Name books left me feeling like something was just missing...but this last book was a HUGE improvement. It gives me hope that the old Christina that I used to love is back!

So so 25 Feb. 2006
By bbvector, LORE Reading Group - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Third book in the Code Name series.

World renowned dog trainer Kit O'Halloran lives alone on the family ranch in New Mexico. Her parents are dead and her older brother is a Firefox operative. Firefox is an ultra-secret government experiment. Wolfe Houston grew up near the O'Halloran ranch and lived there when he couldn't tolerate his abusive parents any longer. Wolfe is a former Navy SEAL and the current Firefox leader. Kit is training four black lab puppies (Baby, Diesel, Butch and Sundance) to be military service dogs. But she doesn't know how "special" they really are. The puppies - and Wolfe and his men - have been bio-engineered with microchip technology to be faster, stronger, tougher. Wolfe can project images. When the previous Firefox leader goes rogue and is a threat to Kit and the puppies, Wolfe is the only one who can handle it. Puppies, lots of action, puppies, interesting twists, puppies and PUPPIES! But I felt like I was missing something at times . . . because I didn't read the first two Code Name books? Maybe.

Amazing!! 16 Jan. 2010
By K. Sozaeva - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Those who have taken the time to read through most of my reviews know my views on romance novels; that is, I don't like them. However, having read this one, I make an exception - this was a really fun book and I actually quite enjoyed it! Maybe it is because there wasn't a lot of the "I hate you, you're a jerk, let's go to bed" type of "dynamic tension" that so many romance novelists seem compelled to create between their leads (since Kit already had a crush on Wolfe, and since Kit is gorgeous and Wolfe only resisted due to professional reasons for a very brief time ...). Or maybe it is because of the very personable title character, the dog named Baby, along with the other black Labradors that Kit is training under government contract. Whatever the reason, this WAS a fun read, and receives a thumbs-up from this reader. Perfect for a weekend away on a sunny beach or a nice evening in a bubble bath or whatever you personally do to relax.
