Fifteen years ago, Anya Radzoya fled Russia with her grandmother after the suspicious deaths of her parents, but she can’t escape the royal genes that make her one of Russia’s last living princesses. When President Ivanov blackmails her into returning to Moscow to be his future wife in exchange for her grandmother’s life, Anya discovers he’s planning to unleash a nuclear war. With no one else to turn to, she join forces with CIA operative Ryan Smith.

Undercover at the nuclear summit, Ryan is happy to recruit Anya to find proof Ivanov is resurrecting the Cold War, but he suspects his new asset is a double agent. Anya is determined to rescue her grandmother with or without his help, however, and Ryan finds himself falling for the beautiful princess before he even trusts her. He refuses to let her go it alone, even if it means risking his own critical mission.

Trapped inside the Kremlin with a cunning and ruthless opponent, the two must risk their lives and their hearts to save Anya’s grandmother, as well as millions of innocent people.

My Thoughts

The Blood Code by Misty Evans can best be described as a nail-biting, spine-tingling, edge of your seat thriller. The book is just chilling. I just couldn’t fathom how Ivanov would be stopped or how Anya would get out of the dreadful situation of being held captive before it was too late. Anya is so feisty and at times it puts her in further danger. Oh and President Ivanov is so creepy, I just cringe when I think about his character. He is so unstable that I couldn’t predict what he would do next.
I liked Anya’s strong will. She added excitement to the story. She was a relentless character that wouldn’t let anything stop her and had no mercy on her enemies.
What the characters were feeling at any moment was clearly depicted. I could only imagine the chills flowing throw Anya’s body while she was alone with Ivanov as I read the following quote: “The heat from the fire might as well have been the north wind blowing outside” (80). At other times I could absolutely understand Anya’s feelings of fear, uncertainty, and hopelessness.
Overall, I appreciated the pacing of The Blood Code. At times the pacing was slow and at other times there was a heightened intensity. In the beginning a mysterious woman Anya shows up at the outpost of the special ops team which piqued my interest. Then there is a period of time in which background information is revealed and Anya and Ryan contemplate their next move. There were shocking developments along the way. And finally, the fast paced action is put into motion when Ryan and Anya constantly take dangerous leaps of faith in an attempt to stop Ivanov from wreaking havoc. I really couldn’t fathom how this would end well, and Evans kept me in suspense until the very end.
The Blood Code was well-written and just had one of the most nerve-wracking endings. If you love suspense novels with a strong heroine, I would definitely recommend this novel.
Rating- 4.5/5
