Initiation by Fire by Cassandra Carr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In this installment, Ethan goes on his first mission. Not everything goes quite as plan and Ethan needs to deal with the aftermath.
I continue to enjoy this series. It is an exciting and dynamic story that is well worth the read.
I’m fascinated by all the ways being a hockey player is transferable to being an undercover operative. A few months ago, I read an article called “10 HOCKEY SKILLS FOR THE REAL WORLD” by Jamie McKinven published in crossicehockey.com. It talks about all the great qualities a hockey player develops that transfer well in a work environment. This article backs up that Ethan is an excellent choice as an operative. Among some of the traits he has developed: a good work ethic, holds himself accountable, team player, familiar with tedious task, pays attention to detail, he is prepared, and perseveres.
Ethan has a lot to deal with emotionally. Add to that, the aftereffects of his first mission. I like that his team mates show excellent support and empathy.
I love the stick and puck weapon Ciana created for him. Having been a product designer, I appreciated the passage where they worked on the design.
I like that we learn the lingo along with Ethan. It makes the story easy to follow.
Cassandra Carr did a fantastic job of creating a credible series. This is a great read for anyone that enjoys action and espionage.
