Countermeasure: Bytes of Life #5. By Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. Format: eBook. Read: April 2013.
This is the fifth installment in the Bytes of Life portion of the Countermeasure Series. This short story is told from the points-of-view of Nathan Nelson and Nikol Petrovna. This is their story that took place in the morning, while everyone was in Russia. Even though the story only covers a few short hours of time, it dives deeper into the Nathan’s past and Nikol’s future.
Written with the same excellent style, that fans have thoroughly enjoyed, Blindsided takes a slight detour away from the hectic romantic suspense filled plot that consumes Trevor’s and Cassie’s lives. Nathan is a character that fans will either love-to-hate or hate-to-love and this is the story where his inner turmoil begins to shine through. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey are an incredible writing duo. They keep the readers craving more. This is yet another must-read in an overall captivating series.
Out of all of the short stories, this was probably my least favorite, only because Nathan hasn’t fully redeemed himself in my eyes. However, I am excited and hopeful that Nikol returns. I see a lot of potential for this always-kicking-butt character. So if you have read this series, please feel free to share your thoughts about Nathan with me.
