I felt like this book just flew by. The storyline is smooth sailing and I just loved meeting some old and new friends of Holly’s. I would love to read more of these characters! The author has definitely hit the perfect groove in leaving me on the edge of my seat! Now, this third book focuses on the crew getting the kidnapped children from the Shadow Coalition base. More team members are needed and some paths lead to Holly’s past. I feel like Holly is stuck in a little ‘love’ triangle. I know who I’m rooting for, but Holly needs to work through her issues before she can think about a relationship….and trusting. There’s action galore at the end and it ends off with the perfect little ending to leave me wanting more!
Honestly I can’t recommend this series enough! If you love a good book with action, humor and a wonderful cast of characters then pick up this book! Though you might want to start from book one.
Heart of the Colossus is the third book in the Holly Drake Job series.
I love these books. There are caveats which somehow don't matter. The best parts are about the main character, Holly; about her relationships, her history with an abuser and her decision to defend herself despite the cost. That this fact is her foundation elevates the entire arc of the plotting. The author writes wonderful dialogue. Even the smallest exchanges are real and natural. The oddball characters are not as well developed and that may be a blessing that sets my imagination free. Finally I feel like I'm part of this 'family' and can't wait to get back to it.

The world building is fantastic. The aliens are fascinating, and this book reveals that not all aliens are humanoid. The characters are fallible, believable, and likeable. The story is engrossing and thrilling. My only problem is Holly's attraction to every available male she encounters; I admit her feelings are starting to annoy me. Otherwise, the series is great. Please start with book 1.
A fantastic read Holly Drake and her team doing what needs to be done to help the children. Holly and her team face alot of adverities to accomplish what there Mission is. There are twists and turns everywhere. You will not want to put this fantastic read down. The Author did a fantastic job at bringing out the characters and the surroundings. I highly recommend this read. Shauna
