Michael C. Bland’s The Price of Safety blasts off the pages in a breathtaking flight through 2047, where nothing is what it seems and few know the horrific truth behind the latest technological marvels. Whilst attending the opening of the world’s first cold fusion power plant, developed by his own company, Dray Quintero receives a desperate call for help from his daughter Raven. This call ensnares Dray in a race against all that he held to be true, and in an ever-increasing surge of danger and intrigue, flings him towards an ultimate discovery; one that will tear up the lives of everyone and rewrite history. Only one question remains; will Dray and his family survive this deadly marathon, or will the government agents prevail in suppressing his discoveries.

The Price of Safety by Michael C. Bland is a story that will leave you completely breathless. This is a book brimming with fast-paced action that continually ramps up until the final crackling climax. I found the ride to be very enjoyable and easy to sink into, allowing the excitement and thrills to spill over to my own emotions. The characters were unique and quite deep, creating a rich atmosphere in which to establish relationships; some warm and loving, and others of absolute hostility. Dray’s love for his family was clearly portrayed, as was his reaction to the revelations about his wife Mina, who in my opinion became the most torn player in this sweeping tale. This is a book for those readers that love a high octane adventure that is easy to read and fully immersive.
