Tethered Blog Tour : Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! We have a stop on the Tethered Blog Tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man’s grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?

For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn’t simply something she was trained for. It’s the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she’s about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.

For Zander D’joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.

Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there’s more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction? 

My Review 
Being a clone and an assassin is all Tyree knows. It is what she was made for and she isn't used to getting involved with others. Her newest assignment may be her hardest yet. She has just learned a secret about herself and her new assignment is to help Zander make a peace treaty. She has to pretend to be his love who was killed and still protect him. Zander has gave everything for his job and just wants to finish it. Tyree may resemble his late love but she is far from being her. Someone doesn't want their mission to pass and will do anything to stop them. While they grow closer to each other so does someone who will kill to stop them.

Tyree is very smart, tough and knows how to get the job done. She doesn't understand what she begins to feel for Zander. She does everything she can to protect him. She doesn't understand a lot about what a relationship is. Zander is really a shell of a man until Tyree gets him to open his heart again. He is tough and doesn't give up easy. 

I liked this book and both characters really don't know for sure what is growing between them. Tyree wonders if Zander sees her or his past love and I'm glad she uses her head and has that thought. Both of them put there selves in danger to save the other even when it is Tyree's job to protect Zander. He still jumps in to help her even when he knows e has to stay alive or much will be lost. I love her ability and it was a neat to read about. I have to say I really didn't see the ending coming. Tyree has a horrible time and I wondered if she would survive. Even tough as she is she has a weakness and it just made her more great. If you like a sci-fi book about fascinating people and different abilities I would recommend this one to you.
