CIA field agent Kelly Kaiser is drawn into a dangerous, top-secret mission to stop the number of people affected by the rowan tree's mysterious forces getting out of control.

Junior CIA field agent Kelly Kaiser jumps at the chance to lead a risky mission to enter Mexico and gather refugees from under the nose of the notorious drug lord who murdered her fianc�.

When the mission takes a revenge-fuelled twist, Kelly finds herself facing dismissal, but Agnes Pendalon, the CIA's chief 'spook' lady, has other ideas. Kelly must lead a new, top-secret team to hunt down everyone infected by a magical, mysterious rowan tree's supernatural forces, and stop the outbreaks getting out of control. Facing an enemy she cannot see or define, Kelly is pulled into a war between alien forces and humanity, and soon discovers that there is more to her fianc�'s death than meets the eye . . .

CIA field agent Kelly Kaiser is drawn into a dangerous, top-secret mission to stop the number of people affected by the rowan tree's mysterious forces getting out of control.

This book is laying the foundation of the story, you’ll experience a lot of groundwork and different point of views from the characters. The story itself is told from their perspectives. As the story unfolds, you do get more answers to questions from the beginning. The story itself does pick up as it progresses through the book.

A couple of things I need to note before I get into the review. First is I have never read a book by this author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Second, this is the second book in a series but it’s perfectly fine to have not read the first one. It reads like a standalone sort of, but there’s a couple of minor cliffhangers. So, at first, I was a little confused when I was reading this. There was so much information thrown at me in the beginning, it took me a little while to get situated. Once that was done, it was definitely full steam ahead. I became so invested in the characters, I wasn’t sure who to root for…even after I’m done, I’m still not very sure. There isn’t much down time, the action is pretty much non-stop, and it is well written. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next, and I’m hoping that we get to see some of these characters again. I loved this and can’t wait for the next one. Highly recommend. I was provided a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

The second book in a series that can be read as a stand alone. Well plotted, gripping, plenty of characters and POVs that are never confusing.
Entertaining, gripping
Many thanks to the publisher for this ARC, all opinions are mine

No Man's Land is the first book I have read by Davis Bunn and it was a great introduction. I quickly discovered this is the second book in this series but I also found the author does a good job of catching you up to what is going on by weaving it very nicely into the book's story. The two main POVs you follow have rather sad backstories and you can see why they are drawn to whatever is happening. Both of these characters end up on opposite sides of the "problem," however you can't determine if there is a good guy or a bad guy. I truly enjoyed that tension. There are a lot of threads in this story and you have to pay attention because it all moves very fast. You feel the urgency of the characters in their "quests" in the pacing of the novel. I could tell we are not getting the same characters as were in the first book, which leads me to wonder if we will see the characters from this book again. I have a feeling this is another thread that will culminate in a later book and I look forward to reading what's to come.

I think what sto0d out about this novel is the precise prose, the reasonable pacing (at more of a canter than a gallop), interesting characters, and the comfortable length if you're looking for a quick read with some punch! I also appreciate books in series that can work as stand alone novels, and this novel delivers that. This book is one that you can come back to without feeling like you've lost the context of the rest of the story.
