BEYOND POWER by Connie Mann


BEYOND POWER by Connie Mann

Christy's Thoughts

Beyond Power is Connie Mann’s second book in her Florida Wildlife Warriors series.

We often forget that beyond Disney World and the beaches, Florida is quite rural and wooded.  Josh Tanner is a pilot and officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, derogatorily called the Fish Cops.

Delilah has come back to the Ocala region to rescue her sister Mary.  Mary will soon turn sixteen and will suffer the same fate that Delilah had escaped from years ago, being married off within an ultra-fundamental militia group.   Self-sufficient from her upbringing, she nevertheless will need to trust Josh and his FWC squad of heroes to rescue Mary.  Her search for her sister brings up illegal fire arms dealing, militia alliances, and corrupt politicians that put a target on Delilah’s back.  Adventure, suspense and romance ensue.

Mann really knows her setting.  You can feel the heat and humidity while reading her descriptions of the wooded landscapes and lakes of this part of Florida.  Also, who knew there were monkeys in Florida?  But, since it is Florida, there should be no surprise at all the crazy critters down there.

It is a nice change to have characters in a suspense/adventure novel that are not your standard police detective, attorney or military member.  

There are a couple of love scenes but nothing explicit in detail or language.  The fade to fireworks kind of love scenes that gives you a hint of heat.

I look forward to the next book in the Florida Wildlife Warriors series.
