One enjoyable, pre-Christmas shopping trip among a family at The Lakes Mall turns into a plotted terrorist attack that, just about, takes the life of every member. Teenager Celaine Stevens miraculously survives but is left with more baggage than an airport facility (thank you, I'm here all week!). Celaine is sent to live with her aunt on the East Coast, and years later is adopted by her boyfriend's family and finally able to be at peace. That doesn't last long, as one night following work Celaine is stalked and offered an unfathomable request by a man claiming to belong to a militant rogue organization. What the man asks of her is to help take down the infamous Man in Black, the terrorist responsible for her family's demise. This request, though unorthodox and quite ridiculous, triggers a primal need of retribution in Celaine, and she plunges into the unknown. And let me tell you, we should thank her for it.Read more ›
I loved Celiane, she had a dry sarcastic sense of humor which I adored and made me laugh on occasions She was also strong willed and determined but Sara cleverly interwove moments of vulnerability to create an engaging character that I could sympathise with. Also because of this vulnerability it justified her actions, which created a solid and strong story line. As well as this the two guys, Chase and Blake were total opposites. Chase being the sweet, caring, shoulder to cry on and Blake the partner who has had his emotions drilled out of him. These two really played with my emotions through out the book as their relationships with Celiane changed but I loved the difference in personality as it made it all the more interesting to read.
In Enigma Black the action is constructed incredibly well, it is fast paced but filled with loads of detail that leaves everything easy to imagine and visualise. I loved it when Celaine turned into her cold 'super hero' version of herself and the confrontations with The Man in Black were brilliant. The start did confuse me slightly as it is written from multiple POV but that was down to the fact we hadn't been introduced to everyone. After that I had no trouble and towards the end I had the moment of "Oh I get the beginning now" which was great as it linked nicely.
The only bad thing I have to say about this book is the cliff hanger ending! It definitely leaves you wanting to know more and I don't know if I can wait too long to find out what happens next.Read more ›
The trauma to Celaine's life is mirrored in the changes to the USA as the country and all it stands for.is broken by these relentless attacks and the USA descends into dictatorship. But who is 'The Man in Black'? How does he single-handedly bring down a democracy such as the US? And how can he be stopped? Celaine will have to work this out once she is 'selected' to join a secret government agency created to do just that.
This is exciting, fast-paced, action-packed and at times humorous and heart-breaking. The Science Fiction elements sound plausible and well thought through and Celaine is a great main character - resourceful, sarcastic, loyal and caring with a great wit and all the doubts any one of us entertain at one time or another. - and it is impossible not to empathise with her. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

This book tells a classic superhero tale, with major sacrifices being made by Celaine on her way to becoming a hero capable and strong enough to fight the man who killed her parents. I was quickly absorbed in the story and found the main characters easy to like. There were some good twists and turns throughout which kept the plot from becoming predictable and kept me turning pages. I read this in a few quick hours and it kept me entertained throughout.
I thought the tone was a bit uncertain in places - it would seem like a serious moment but then Celaine would wink or something. This was the only thing that really bothered me and it's a minor complaint for a story that captivated me from beginning to end.
Overall this is an entertaining, page-turning, superhero story. The ending both shocked and satisfied - I look forward to finding out what happens next!
