In a matter of seconds, the ...more

I really liked this book! C. Michelle Jefferies is a great writer. She knows how to write action, and pull in her readers from the first page. Emergence is the kind of book that you never want to put down until the last page. The main protagonist can be aloof at times, but also is a deep thinker. He grows on you so much! Antony is someone that you can see being the next James Bond; he is that charismatic, but he is also very deadly in his role as an assassin.

I was so totally shocked at the end

An unusual main character takes the stage in C. Michelle Jefferies' new high-tech thriller, Emergence. Only the wife he adores and her hope for a family could make a hit man soften his rough edges. Add in a death threat, confusing signals from his employer, and a lurking presence, and Antony more than wonders if he needs to get out of this dangerous business. I expected the plot to take some different directions than it did—wanting even more thrills, tech details, or some of the assignments to l ...more
A serviceable thriller about an assassin, about 70 years in the future, who kills bad guys: or so he thinks. After killing a few men who don't seem bad, as well as being followed by a stranger who threatens him and his wife if he doesn't do his work better, Antony starts wondering what the bigger picture is and what's going on. He's most worried about his wife and her safety.
I enjoyed the book fairly well, but the whole thing ended up feeling a bit like just a prologue or introduction to the re

I read this book while I should have been staring at the wonder of Yellowstone Park. It was refreshing to see an assassin tale that manages to make the main character interesting and multidimensional. An assassin with a wife? No, scratch that. An assassin who is actually in love with his wife? The book manages to be suspenseful and clean at the same time. I'd definitely recommend it to those who have trouble dealing the with gore that generally comes in this genre. I read this quickly, recommend ...more

Fast paced, heart pounding, sweaty palm action. This book keeps you on your toes, guessing at every turn.
Who is good? Who is bad? And who dies next?
Antony doesn't know who to trust, who to kill, and who to let live.

This book will keep you reading late into the night, never giving you a break to put it down.

Warning: Once you start reading, you won't stop until you've reached the end!

Characters? Incredible, believable.
Writing? 5 stars alone just for the writing.
Story? Think James Bond only

I really did enjoy this book. It was a fairly quick read and I stayed interested the entire time. The book is set in the future but not so far in the future, or written in such a way that you couldn't visualize it in that way. There was a religious aspect to the story which I found unexpected but nice and not overdone. Overall good read.

**I received this book free from Goodreads.

This book is the story of how an assassin changes his life. There were some tragic events that lead to the changes, so it's not a typical "happily ever after" kind of book. It's exciting and fast-paced, so it's hard to put down. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I was a little leery in the beginning of this book with the main character being a hit man. How can that be redeemable, but I was wrong. He did have a heart of gold. Very different, definitely worth the read.
