On the Author's Website:
Stefan Korsak and his genetically-altered brother have evaded the Institute for three years. When they learn the new location of the secret lab, they plan to break in and save the remaining children there. But one of the little ones doesn't want to leave. She wants to kill...
Stefan and Misha have settled into a new, quiet life in hiding. The institute where Misha was held captive wants him back and the members of the mafiya Stefan abandoned are equally eager to find him. Life in hiding is boring, but it's a type of boring Stefan and Misha have learned to appreciate, until boring suddenly becomes dangerous.
I can't tell you how many times I've reread this book. Mostly that's because of how much I enjoy reading the characterizations. Stefan, Misha, and Zilla are so engaging and their antics so much fun. I also liked how Thurman managed to pull humor into everything that was going on no matter how dire the situation.
The plot itself was a bit rough for me. It feels a little jumpy every time Misha tells things to Stefan, but not to the reader, or Misha tells the reader he's hiding something, but doesn't tell the reader what that might be. It adds to the suspense, yet at the same time the convention of it is a little frustrating.
I've lost count of how many times I've reread this book. The characters are so engaging and the humor in the story is so much fun. The plot can feel a bit jumpy at times, but overall I always enjoy reading this story and absolutely recommend it.
