I feel that I need to give a little bit of a history lesson for those of you not familiar with LRJ's books.

First off, The Zodius Series was inspired by Lisa's Underground Guardian series---also a great set of books, BTW, but not a MUST READ first to understand the books in the Zodius Series.

Next, I should let you know that The Danger That Is Damion is Book Three in the Series...and the first two books are just as divine and addicting. The covers ain't shabby either, lol.

Book One

Book Two

Lastly, for those of you that I have enticed with awesome and drool worthy is a little back story from Lisa Renee Jone's Blog page to help fill in the gaps. And trust me, if this doesn't grab your interest, I don't know what will, lol.
This series is fresh, action oriented, smexy, and filled with compelling characters that I want more of.

Area 51 has proven to be more than a place from which alien rumors originate. It is there that the United States government created Super Soldiers under the top secret “Project Zodius,” soldiers they called GTECH enhanced. Alien DNA purported to be immunizations was injected into elite soldiers, and a new race was created—soldiers with unique powers. Human to the normal eye, but not quite so human anymore.
All Super Soldiers are dangerous but some are stronger and more powerful than others. All are fighters with incredible strength and speed along with unique mental powers. Rapid metabolism delivers them an amazing ability to heal from injuries, and a simple bullet is no longer deadly against muscles like steel. They are deadly fighting machines who can travel with the wind.
Along with this new breed of soldier had come a thirst for power. A thirst that Adam Rain intends to sate. This soldier had developed a vision for a “perfect race.” He became the new Hitler, calling his followers, those enhanced soldiers, the “Zodius.”
The first step in Adam’s plan to rule humanity had been to take over Area 51. The main obstacle to his plan had been breeding, and he had a team of scientists working to solve the problems: a GTECH can only bear children if mated; and a Zodius only has one true mate (Lifebond). This meant he had to find compatible women for his men, an obstacle he became determined to overcome. This had left him searching for genetic and alternative birthing methods. He had used humans like tokens, promised them power or conversion, or threatened their families. Once he has perfected a way to grow his race, there will be no stopping him.
A group of these Super Soldiers led by his brother, Caleb, has defied Adam’s rule and formed “The Renegades.” These Renegades operate from a hidden facility deep in the Nevada mountains below the surface of the earth, designed to hide the Renegades from Zodius radar. These Renegades will form an uneasy alliance to the United States government, protecting humanity.

But Adam aspires to rule the world, and he believes he can do so with Caleb by his side. Adam is taking every step possible to ensure that Caleb joins him, and that the Renegades become part of the Zodius.
Caleb and his Renegades will do anything to see Adam fall and humanity saved from his wrath.

Book Review

I have been hooked on this series from the beginning, and for me, the books just get better and better. The action, the romance, the witty dialogue--all of it make for a highly enjoyable read.

 Lisa has created such an interesting world, unique in this sometimes over-saturated genre. She continues to keep the pace of this series ever changing--secrets kept and revealed, questionable bad guys whose loyalty could change at the blink of an eye---and I am definitely on board for this exciting series. Her characters are highly developed, her world building skills rock the house, and I am in love with the Renegades.  Gimmie More, Lisa!!
