AGENT I1: TRISTAN
• Second generation Former Navy SEAL
• DIRE’s top agent
Tristan is a former Navy Seal who is recruited by the D.I.R.E. (Defense, Intelligence and Reconnaissance Enforcement) Agency. They are a private security firm engaged in black-ops type activities. Tristan is enhanced with the ability to become invisible and teleport anywhere. (Really, is there any better superpower?)
As a favor to his friend, Aidan, Tristan helps prevent Aidan's sister, Rachel, from marrying the wrong guy for the wrong reasons. Of course, in the midst of captivity, they grow closer but there are misunderstandings and mistrust that keep them apart.
I liked the interactions between Tristan and Rachel. Rachel is no whimp and although she is no Sydney Bristow, she is intelligent and has a smart mouth (which she uses very well).
Because this is the first book in a series, we are introduced to a whole host of characters with a lot of backstory. There is a story arc that is established involving the agent from a rival agency and a guarded history between the founders of D.I.R.E. and Naylor Interests. We also have the mystery of who killed Rachel and Aidan's father? Does it have anything to do with D.I.R.E. or Naylor? What about the confusing evidence at the scene? Author Joni Hahn does a great job keeping us on our toes with the various twists and turns. There is still a lot to be uncovered and I am very excited to read the next two books.
IN A NUTSHELL:
If you are an adrenaline junkie, you're going to like this book. Combining superhero adventures with a scorching love story, Book 1 in the D.I.R.E. Agency, Agent I1: Tristan delivers an action packed read.
