A businesswoman's life takes a whole new direction when she accepts a job at a genetics corporation in the chilling science-fiction thriller, Defying Destiny (Alexa Chronicles: Book 1) by K.A. Liddiard. Ashleigh Daniels is turning fifty, and after a lifetime of building her career, she realizes she has no family and no friends; she is alone. So, when Ashleigh meets Rick Malvern, an acquisitions agent for GenTech BioPharma Research, Inc., a large genetics corporation, she is ready for a change. However, as exciting as Rick makes working for GenTech sound, being employed by them comes with a hitch. Ashleigh has to abandon her previous life. In addition, an ironclad contract binds her to the corporation for twelve years with no recourse. After considering the pros and cons, Ashleigh decides the prospects are too lucrative to pass up and signs on the dotted line. But has Ashleigh missed something, and the offer is not as it seems? Is there a sinister motive lurking behind Rick's proposal?
Infused with mystery and suspense, the science-fiction novel Defying Destiny (Alexa Chronicles: Book 1) by K.A. Liddiard captures the imagination from page one. The action-packed scenes, intense atmosphere, incredible settings, and intriguing characters create a tense and compelling story. The flaws in Ashleigh's, Rick's, and Mitch's personalities give their characters an authentic aspect, making it easy to sympathize and identify with them. With a few unexpected twists and a lot of conflict, the storyline moves at an even pace, keeping the story's tension and apprehension alive. Stopping on a cliffhanger, it is a sensational beginning for a thrilling new series. Everyone who relishes the combination of suspense and mystery with romantic interludes will not want to miss it!
