One of an army of human soldiers injected with alien DNA, Michael is a legend within this new race, split between good and evil. Untamable, he has walked on the dark side and returned to the light. Feared and misunderstood, he leaves everything behind, including the one woman destined to be his mate.


Fate leads Michael back to Cassandra Powell, for she holds the key to defending his comrades. With their loyalties divided between duty and the people they love, only together can Cassandra and Michael overcome insurmountable odds to save humanity from the wrath of a madman.

But no ordinary woman can control a creature such as Michael, and only one thing is clear—the world will never be the same…

Michael is a GTECH soldier that has been injected with alien DNA. He is feared by humans and his fellow GTECH counterparts. All except one person. Cassandra Powell.

Cassandra is daughter to the GTECH creator and is attracted to and intrigued by Michael. The two of them spark up a relationship, but when all hell breaks loose, she doesn't see him for two whole years.

This is where part two of the novel begins. All the action of the war between GTECHs and mankind takes place here. All of the action kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what happened next.

The Legend of Michael was very well written. I didn't feel like all the action was just an afterthought thrown in to fill pages. Michale and Cassandra were both very likable characters with their own personal demons. That's what made them so likable and real. Plus the chemistry between Cassandra and Michael was hot. I was glad that the two of them had a mutual affection for each other before the lifebond.

The GTECHs were like super soldiers on steroids. Like with all things, you have your good guys and bad guys. The Renegades and the Zodius. They were each led by twin brothers, Caleb and Adam. I like to refer to them as Cain and Abel, but in reverse.

I definitely want to continue on with this series. Ms. Jones wrote a fantastic opener to what looks to be a great paranormal romantic suspense series. If The Legend of Michael is any indicator of what's to come with this series, it's going to be a great action-packed adventure.

I've read and enjoyed many of Jones books, I expect this one to be another of them.
