Review; Perfect Weapon (Double Helix, #3) by Jade Kerrion

Don’t fear the army of genetically engineered perfect killers. Fear the cripple who leads them.

An alpha empath, Danyael Sabre is powerful, rare, and coveted, even among the alpha mutants who dominate the Genetic Revolution. Betrayed by his friends and abandoned to a life sentence in a maximum-security prison, Danyael receives freedom and sanctuary from an unlikely quarter—the Mutant Assault Group, an elite mutant task force within the US military. Physically crippled and emotionally vulnerable, Danyael succumbs to the warmth of friendships and the promise of love he finds within their ranks.

Friendship and love, however, demand his loyalty, and Danyael rises to the challenge of training and leading the assault group’s genetically modified super soldier army. The super soldiers are faster and stronger than the military’s human soldiers; their animal instincts spur ferocity and fearlessness in battle. Who is the perfect weapon, though, the super soldiers or Danyael, the alpha empath, who can, with a touch, heal or kill?

Adversaries swarm like vultures around carrion; the pawn is once again in play. The threads of betrayal that sent Danyael to prison spin into a web, ensnaring him. When a terrorist group strikes Washington, D.C., how far will Danyael go to defend a government that sent him to prison to die?

PERFECT WEAPON is the third novel in the award-winning Double Helix series.

My thoughts 

I was addicted to this book as I was with the last two on the series, to see my reviews click Here and Here. I found myself sneak reading this book at work while the boss wasn't around or outside my son's pre school while waiting for the doors to be open.

Danyael feels the betrayal of his friends deeply which leads him straight into the grasp of General Howard the leader of the mutant assault group who as manipulated Danyael's every move.
Danyael however sees the General as the man who saved him from going back to ADX  where he was electrically tortured every half hour of every day for fourteen months.The General offers Danyael recuperation and safety.
It isn't long until Danyael realises that General as ulterior motives, he wants Danyael to train the super soldiers  The telepaths have so far had no luck and the General believes that Danyael would succeed where they failed. 

Lucien still doesn't have his memories back and still hates Danyael. he wants to get his memories back he is angry that someone as messed with his head and asks Miriya to help.

Zara is falling in love with Danyael as is Miriya *I cant blame them* Zara as news she needs to share with Danyael, she as a daughter which tests confirm are Danyael.

Xin is still manipulating everyone she is almost replacing Zara in my hate for her. although her reasons are sound I cant help but feel for the people who get hurt because of her.

Galahad's templates are turning up dead although only Xin as noticed the pattern. Galahad is also struggling with being in the real world, he cant understand why everyone cares for Danyael but they keep leaving him, he hasn't learnt social behaviour and no-one as the time to teach him.

I loved this book, every time I read another instalment I love Danyael more. the characters are well thought out and rounded. Jade Kerrion really does a great job at fleshing out each character, we really get to see what makes each  character click. 

I cant wait to see what else Jade Kerrion as to offer with the Double Helix series, I am really hoping Danyael will get the happy ending he really deserves.
