Peek Inside Absolved

Luke Kincaid and Dr. Beth Jenkins don’t agree about much of anything except there is chemistry between them. But when the bodies start piling up, they must work together if they’re going to save the world.

Since a brain-altering drug killed most of Luke Kincaid’s town—including his father—and left him telekinetic, he’s determined to stop the fanatic who stole the drug to create his own super-powered army. That means working with scientist Dr. Beth Jenkins, whose graphic tees and beautiful smile are some of Luke’s biggest distractions.

A science prodigy, Beth works with the FBI and solves the toughest crimes, but she can’t figure out what caused her mother’s early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The drug that ravaged Luke’s town is volatile, and the mortality rate is still high, yet Beth is convinced it holds the key to saving her mother, even if sexy and tortured Luke doesn’t believe it should be adapted for commercial use.

When bodies start to pile up, though, the two loners must decide if the goals that tie them together are greater the fears that would tear them apart.

This is an action packed page-turner and brilliant conclusion to this fantastic series – I just couldn’t put it down until I had read it all and have absolutely no hesitation in suggesting you go grab the series and read them instead of my review!

However, just in case you want to know more before... ...more

By Jacque December 14, 2017

Absolved. Such an interesting title. Having finished the book I’m sitting her thinking which character was absolved. Is it Luke who returned following Parker and Jack when they first were all changed? Is it Beth and her wanting to research Solvimine, to adapt it for commercial use and help her mo... ...more

My Review:
This is a series I've followed ever since it came out. It's a cross between a dystopian story (which is what the first book felt like) and paranormal/superhero story (which is how this book felt as the world and these characters have evolved).

The town of Glory was the scene of an experi... ...more

This time we hear from Luke and Beth. The team is close on finding the drug the changed their lives and try to destroy, except Beth sees real progress in developing this drug for people with brain ailments.

After all he’s seen Luke completely d... ...more

Absolved by Marnee Blake is book Three in the "Altered" series. This is the story of Luke Kincaid and Dr. Beth Jenkins. I haven't yet read the previous books and I do feel that I would have understood things more if I had, but overall it didn't stop me from enjoying this book
Beth is very smart w... ...more

By Petula December 07, 2017

I will say right away that although I really enjoyed this and understood what was happening, I hadn't read the previous books, and think it would be better to read the series in order. That is just because the reason our hero and lots of the other characters are "altered" is very important.
Dr Be... ...more

Wow... Wow... Wow.
I was NOT expecting this book at all. Just when I thought certain things were going to happen, the story took another path instead. The relationship between Luke & Beth gets very rocky throughout the book. Until the very end, you're not very sure what is going to happen. It... ...more

By Elizabeth December 18, 2017

**Disclaimer: This is the third, and final, book in this series. I highly recommend reading them in order as they're all connected by the same plot line, but feature different couples and issues stemming from everything that happened.

Luke lost almost his entire hometown, including his own father,... ...more

By Angela December 25, 2017

The final book in the series. Luke is obsessed with finding and stopping his old friends and roommates, Jack and Parker. He would do anything to stop them, even if it's putting a hold on his attraction to Beth. Beth has her own obsession; finding a way to slow down or reverse the affects of the d... ...more
