After seven years living as Alexandra Gastone, Milena Rokva is now free to be her true self, if only she knew who that was or had time to find out. Milena is in a race against time to bring down Perun, the very organization that trained her as a spy. Perun is no longer content to use their network of sleeper agents to protect her homeland and is maneuvered to take control of the world’s energy markets, sending the globe into chaos.
Working with her surrogate grandfather, Albert Gastone, his CIA friend Brad and her old handler, Varos, Milena finds herself embroiled in an epic spy game teamed with friends whose endgames do not necessarily align with her own. The only person Milena can truly trust is herself.
Can Milena take down Perun, protect her fellow cadets and make a life for herself with her boyfriend, Grant, as well as the friends and family she’s come to love as Alexandra Gastone? Buckle in for a wild ride as the Alexandra Gastone duology comes to a close.

Milena Rokva is coming into herself as it’s been discovered she has been a sleeper agent posing as Alexandra Gastone. Alexandra’s grandfather and Milena are on the run from the law. They are looking to bring down the government of Milena’s home country. In the process they are hoping to get immunity. They hatch a plan to recover Alexandra in the process. They are in for some unexpected surprises as they race to bring justice to the country that produced sleeper child spy agents.

In an Oyster Shell – It was a satisfying conclusion the Alexandra Gastone Duology.

The Pearls – I liked how this book started, right where the first book took off. It was a seamless transition into the next book.

I really like how the grandfather excepted Milena as family. He even risked his own life to help save her and get her immunity in the United States. The camaraderie between the characters was unprecedented.

The romance was unexpected in the end. It was a welcome addition to the story. It added a nice depth and added to the satisfying conclusion.

The Sand – It was good a little violent at times.

4 Pearls!
