Book Description

30 Aug 2012
In the near future, as America endures its second Great Depression, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, only to be plunged into a strange world where mild-mannered scientists can kick his highly skilled ass. These “Greater-Thans” undergo rigorous training to master unique abilities—including telekinesis, super strength, and reversal of the aging process—by accessing untapped regions of the brain. But for the rich and reckless, there’s a quick, seductive alternative: Destiny, a highly addictive designer drug that can make anyone a Greater-Than—for a lethal price.
Michelle “Mac” Mackenzie is determined to end the scourge of Destiny. As one of OI’s crack operatives, she’s learned to wield her powers responsibly. But she’s knocked for a loop when she meets the new test subject: Shane, the same smoldering stranger who just rocked her world in a one-night stand. Mac’s got reasons to keep her distance from him—and reasons that are just as strong to want him close. She’s used to risking her life, but now, in the midst of the ultimate war on drugs, she must face sacrificing her heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's good but not great 14 Sep 2012
By Roz
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Suzanne Brockmann's books usually. Alpha male hero with strong female heroine who can stand her ground against him. My negative was the m/m relationship I wish she didn't always make one of her male love interest characters so wet. I have gay friends and I don't see the almost parent (Steven / Jules) child (Elliot / Robin) relationship that her m/m romances seem to have. I would like to see strong male with strong male because if the m/f relationship was like that I would want to slap the woman tell her not to be so pathetic and to grow up. So why can't the m/m relationship be on an equal footing too?.
I didn't enjoy it as much as her others most of which I would give 5 stars. It's not as good as a 4 but better than a 3.

3.0 out of 5 stars An "OK" book by a usually GREAT writer 10 May 2012

I am a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann and I normally absolutely love her books, but I must say I was a little disappointed with Born to Darkness.

The whole concept of the book is VERY similar to Christine Feehan's "Ghostwalker" books,(if you haven't read any of these - check them out you won't be disappointed) but in my opinion in this particular genre Christine Feehan wins hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars How well she can write 1 Sep 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
After having read almost all her books, here is a new one I can almost not put down.
And what a delight also with her style. Not to say, she makes us love many figuring in this:
Can hardly wait to read their stories too. A wonderful new series awaiting!
