Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.
An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.
The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves's daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren't revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.
This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today's headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?

- What a fascinating story to end this trilogy by Sarah on 11/12/2013
In Peril, the final book of the Bloodline Trilogy, Morgan is a nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit. So, she is consistently surrounded by very sick children -- stressful, yes? Now add to that, just a month ago her friend and childcare provider for Teagan, her baby girl, murdered the little girl by shaking her -- oh, no, my heart breaks for Morgan. I understand her anger and attempts to hang on the Teagan. However, her marriage with Tyler is crumbling fast because she can’t let him in. Also, due to complications a few days before Teagan was born Morgan’s kidneys started to fail. She needs a kidney transplant...but does she even want to live?
Now she learns a secret about parents that continues to shake her foundation of Faith and trust. This twist also puts her in the middle of a very horrible situation!
I was able to review all 3 books of the Bloodline, and it’s been quite a ride! I really enjoyed Peril - very fast paced with interesting character and totally fascinating scientific possibilities. I love the experience and the amount of research the author, Jordyn Redwood, brings to her novels. You could read the books of the Bloodline Trilogy -- Proof, Poison, and Peril -- individually and still enjoy a great read. However, I would recommend that you dive in at the beginning.
As a family interested in action, mysteries, medical and law enforcement books, we will look forward to what Jordyn Redwood writes next!
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair and honest review.
