Ace of Hart (Hart of Darkness) (Volume 1) by Violeta Bagia

Rating****

Genre:  Fiction – Thriller

Read: March 2018

“Ace of Hart (Hart of Darkness)” is the debut novel from Violeta Bagia. This espionage/sci fi thriller is a non-stop adventure from cover to cover. It also includes a hefty romance subplot for fans of the genre. It’s well-paced, with interesting characters and situations

Ace, our flawed heroine is a rough and tumble ex-military operative, dealing with the death of her parents, and an Iraq operation-gone wrong. Unable to fit with general society and manage interpersonal relationships, she finds herself drawn into The Agency, a place for people with mysterious talents like her own.

“Ace of Hart” is similar in some ways to the British Sci-Fi series of the late 60s “The Tomorrow People”, and “X-Men – Legion”, in that it concerns the fates of young people with special abilities, and who must learn to manage their talent and avoid exploitation by “the system”.

A great read, and I look forward to the starting the next book in the series.
