Already addicted to the pharmaceutical drug that keeps her body from decomposing, Bryn has to stop a secretive group of rich and powerful investors from eliminating the existing Returne addicts altogether. To ensure their plan to launch a new, military-grade strain of nanotech, the investors' undead assassin - who just happens to be the ex-wife of Bryn's lover Patrick - is on the hunt for anyone that stands in their way. And while Bryn's allies aren't about to go down without a fight, the secret she's been keeping threatens to put those closest to her in even more danger. Poised to become a monster that her own side - and her own lover - will have to trap and kill, Bryn needs to find the cure to have any hope of preserving the lives of her friends, and her own dwindling humanity.

Picking up where Two Weeks' Notice left off, Terminated begins as Bryn and her allies flee the compound where Bryn and Riley have been held prisoner and tortured by Patrick's psychopathic ex wife, Jane. Eluding capture by Jane and her cohorts will not be easy, and what follows includes pitched fire fights, ambushes and explosions where the action is fast paced, the tension high and the body count mounts. Bryn herself is shot point blank in the head, hit by a truck, blown up, shot again (again and again), severely burnt in a brush fire and forced to burrow into her own stomach.

Complicating everything is the secret Bryn and Riley are keeping. During their time in the base they were infected with a new mutation of the Returne. This new strain is self replicating and requires feeding with protein - raw steak, human flesh - the nanites don't discriminate and now Bryn has to worry about turning on her people.

The end game for Bryn and her allies, Joe, Patrick, Manny, Pansy, Annalie and Liam, is finding the cure for Returne and thwarting the plans of those who are determined to build a new world order. It's a hell of a wild ride to get there and the resolution is the perfect payoff.

The ending left me feeling like there could have been a few more chapters to wrap things up better but overall it was good. Bryn was extremely brave in her decisions and her willingness to do what most would not. I felt like everything was wrapped up nicely and everyone that should have been there at the end was there. Good series.

Hmm, interesting to read. Not sure I liked the ending. But this is very much in Rachel's style and it shouldn't have surprised / disappointed me.
