About The Book

The year: 2157 The mission: change everything
The Unit: Democratic State Force Base 1407 Call handle: The Wildcards

Seven Corporations control what was the United States of America. The food supply and its production is controlled by American AgCo. All agricultural seeds in the United States have been genetically designed to fail outside Corporate control.
At least, that’s what the Corporations say.

There’s a rumor that a seed bank has survived the destabilization that brought down old America, and the seventy-five years of Corporate ownership that followed. If it still exists, it would provide free, accessible food for the Democratic State Force and everyone in their care. It’s a risky hunt for a treasure that may or may not exist. Something to put the most resourceful team in the Force to work on. The Wildcards just got the call.

A hunt for hidden treasure.
Free food.
What could go wrong?
Never ask that question. Life’s a bitch. She’ll answer.

The Review

First things first, this is definitely part of a series.  You are dropping into a book that assumes you know these characters and the world they live in.  And wow what a world it is.  

Tearmann has created a dystopian world where corporations have segmented our lives, down to every rule that dictates how a person lives.  In this fourth book, our intrepid group of “dusters” is finding out that all the good things they are working for, the things that will make their lives so much better, could all disappear because of their pasts.  

I’ve been following The Wildcards since book one and my absolute favorite thing about this cast of characters is that they represent every possible person on any spectrum, and they are all so well written. 

The focus of this book is Aidan and Kevin as they do what they can to take care of their base.  Tearmann throws so much at these two, but they never give up.  

The writing makes you almost feel like you are “watching” an amazing movie.  It has so much well written detail and dialogue that you are flying through the pages.  Highly recommend this for fans of science fiction and of romance.    

The Reviewer

In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
