Weakest Lynx (Lynx #1) by Fiona Quinn is a book I found I really enjoyed. I like the fact that the agent "protecting" her doesn't know she is more than capable of protecting herself. Sure there is the romance angle but it is ,well, difficult since they are both married. I was drawn the the paranormal part, oh yeah! I like this crazy book, this girl is kick ass. She can do all sorts of stuff, she has been trained by the best. A Jane Bond, Bruce Lee together in one. A fun book. Some people don't ...more

The brightness of a hero shines it's greatest when it is confronted with the deepest darkness. This book is filled with heroes that you want to applaud for, and villains who will inhabit your worst nightmares. Fiona Quinn does an incredible job of breaking the mold of a thriller. Her main character, Lexi Sabado, is young, beautiful, intelligent and skilled far beyond her years. Lexi grew up un-schooled learning a vast and varied eduction from a host of teachers who've given her one of the most ...more

This book is beyond amazing. I would compare it to the best of Kay Hooper or a David Baldacci with a paranormal flair. Then you have Lexi as a heroine with smarts and who kicks tail as well. I started this book, set it aside to eat lunch, then finished it late this afternoon. I could not put it down and had to wait to catch my breath to write this review. I eagerly await the next book in what promises to be a great series.

This book is about a 19yr old leonardo da vinci with the body of a victoria secret model (though it's not till book 3 when they explicitly state that she has 32 DDs to go with her size 2 frame - must of been hard pretending to be a boy in a loose hoodie as described in this book).

It's official, I'm a Quinn Fangirl. This book has been on my reading list for a while, but I had to get through publishing my latest in my series and I had a couple of books ahead of this. I finally got to it just the week before my 'break between writing books' ended. And boy am I glad I did. By the third chapter this story grabbed me with iron hooks and sucked me into a powerful vortex and a week later I emerged having read every single one of Ms. Quinn's books. I couldn't stop.

I almost quit this book before I even read it, and instead I ended up gut-wrenched and crying.

Lets just start with the beginning, Lexi is a seriously educated and gifted person. Not only has she been trained for Intelligence and fighting but she has some major ESP voodoo going on as well. And a seriously messed up stalker, who keeps messing with her happy days. With her husband (yes she is married to someone other than a MC...(view spoiler)

Sit tight, dear reader—Weakest Lynk isn’t the worst book I’ve ever read…but it’s close. It’s terrible. TERRIBLE. How this book went through beta readers and a professional editor (so the acknowledgements say anyway) and STILL came out this bad is a question I will ponder until the day I die.

It’s time for an old-fashioned rant.

The TL;DR summary: none of the characters resemble real human beings,

Lexi Sobado has lived an interesting life. Only twenty, she is a Kung Fu master and has trained with police officers, spy masters, and master chefs. She can shoot a bullseye, beat trained operatives on an obstacle course, and still appear as sweet and innocent as the girl next door. She also has gifts that insure her life will never be the “normal” she craves.

Lexi is great at solving puzzles. Her mentor, Spyder McGraw, a legend at the shadowy government agency Iniquus, trained her in secret to

What a wonderful thriller of a twisted cat and mouse game. Right away I was intrigued from the very first page. Quinn weaves an amazing story and makes you fall in love with every character. The build up wasn't too slow or too fast. I couldn't read fast enough however to find out what was just below the surface. Lexi's men are fierce and protective and you can tell they all compliment each other. I'm ready for the next tale in this series. I must admit the title is what intrigued

In "Weakest Lynx," author Fiona Quinn introduces us to a unique protagonist with an unusual skill set. Lexi Sobado is young, smart, tough, caring, and funny. Among other things, she is also an accomplished martial-arts fighter, an expert marksman, and she has a few surprising and singular paranormal abilities as well. When Lexi is stalked by a sadistic killer who has her in his crosshairs, Lexi must use all her talents to survive in this tale that accelerates from start to finish, ending in a ...more

I entered a competition where you could win 30 crime E-Books and I won. Which was a good start to my 50th year on this earth. So this is just the start of some good reading.

I felt this story was to jumpy for the first 40%. It also felt like book 2 because of the way it started - like I had missed something. Over the 40% mark the story settled down and I enjoyed it. It does go into the mystical stuff at one stage. Some people believe in that thing but not me.

Lexi Sobado is the perfect heroine. Though young, barely out of her teens, she’s tough and soft, compassionate and fierce. She can save a kitty and take down a killer on the same day—in the same hour, actually. She’s psychic too. Fiona Quinn has a winner with The Missing Lynx. Plenty of suspense and action, plus, there’s a nice almost-romantic element, which I assume carries through the rest of the series. The Missing Lynx was a Kindle Scout winner, and I can see why. Five stars all the way.

In Fionna Quinn's debut novel she has done what many authors only dream of one day doing - created a protagonist wholly unique, surprising, and believable. Lexi is someone you wish you knew; from her background and fascinating education to her psychic abilities to her innocent charm, it's no surprise that this is just the first of what will surely become a successful series. Kudos to Quinn for giving us another strong female protagonist who's not a victim but a role model.

At first glance Weakest Lynx would appear to be a paramilitary thriller but it is so much more. Lexi Sobado is an intriguing character that has lived a lifetime in a very short time. I loved her strength and determination. This book is non-stop action. The only thing I didn’t like is that I can’t pronounce Iniquus and it drove me to distraction. I’ve purchased the rest of the series (to date) and plan on binge reading.
after years of hearing stories about Striker from her mentor, Spyder, Lexi has to trust him and his Inquis team to protect her from her stalker. She finds a new home and a new purpose, but will she lose it all to a psychopath? Fiona had me laughing, crying, scared, fighting, hoping with this book. Seriously, the bathroom scene with Striker and Lexi made me laugh out loud!! Definitely worth getting right now!

I really liked the first-person POV of the book. The main character Lexi Sobado is skilled in many different areas, but thanks to understanding her thoughts and concerns, I never perceived her as overskilled. She is a realistic person who already faced many challenges in her young life. Behind the facade she holds up for valid reasons, she is a fragile person and Fiona Quinn makes an awesome job to display her doubts and weaknesses as well - very well balanced character!

Lexi Sobado is the kind of protagonist you can't help but love. She's tough, yet vulnerable, smart, yet innocent, trusting of the ones she loves, and fiercely distrusting of the rest of the world. When you first meet Lexi you know within a few pages that it will be a long winding road to discover all the facets of her personality. Some might call her a child prodigy, her education lacking the traditional route and aimed towards real life applications, and it has made her into the woman she is at ...more

5 STARS don't begin to cover it!

There are good books, and there are great books. It’s always deliciously wonderful to come across a story so captivating that it becomes a bit of an addiction. Fiona Quinn’s Weakest Lynx is just such a treasure, a gem among the gems, where the characters spring off the page and straight into your heart.

As the novel’s heroine, Lexi Sobado, deals with a twisted stalker, the many layers of this remarkable young woman are revealed. The more I discovered about Ms.

I intended to only read the first book in the series prior to interviewing the author, but the book hooked me, but good! Not your "same old, same old" heroine trope, Lexi Sobado provides a fresh and different kind of quirky, kick-ass girl to love. With a unique combination of gifts, combined with her unconventional upbringing, she is mature beyond her years in some ways, and refreshingly naive in others. It all works to keep the reader glued to Lexi's side as she faces some pretty extraordinary ...more

This is a well written, multi-faceted story that brings us action, suspense, mystery, romance, and family drama, all with a paranormal undercurrent. The author certainly has a gift for storytelling. I felt like I was there in the midst of the action, breathing their air and feeling their emotions.

The plot moves at a steady pace, building momentum as we near the climax. Quinn tackles the topic of stalkers, showing us how absolute the effects can be on the victim's life. Sadly, most stalker

Liked this a lot. It is quite intense. The story builds slowly, with information relayed during conversations. Lexi is a young woman of just 20 years old but with an impressive skillset. She is schooled in all kinds of things but has never actually been to school. She does Reiki, can fly, is an EMT, knows how to shoot and defend herself etc. She has been trained by a commander of Iniquus.

Recommends it for: Thriller lovers.
Part of the enjoyment I get from reading is that wonderful moment of discovery when I come across a new writer whose novelistic creation blows my mind with its originality. Now, I have already misled you; this wasn’t an entirely new author for me as I had read her ‘Chaos is come again’, co-written with another author whose work I admire, John Dolan, last year. That book had intrigued me to keep an eye out for Fiona Quinn’s Lynx series, of which ‘Weakest Lynx’ is the first novel.

The wait was well

I had to force myself to finish this book. I started reading it weeks ago and put it aside multiple times. I just could not get into a character who has mastered everything by the time she was 14. And I do mean pretty much everything. She flies planes at 12, is a master spy and analyst a couple of years later. She cooks like a dream, she does astounding magic. She is psychic as well as being an expert in hand to hand.
I also did not like the obvious romance subplot between Lexi (who is married

Well now, it seems that Nancy Drew's all grown up, armed with a thigh holster, an arsenal of physical and intellectual training, and going by the name of Lexi Sobado. Told entirely from the main character's point of view, WEAKEST LYNX is filled with colorful, fully sympathetic players moving through this tightly plotted thriller. I particularly enjoyed watching Lexi puzzle through not just the cases she helps with, but her own psychic abilities that hinder as much as help her. Her extraordinary ...more

Talk about suspenseful! This book left me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Fast paced and well written, I felt for Lexi. I could feel her apprehension as she received note after note from the Stalker. It was a roller coaster of emotions and tension. At times, I did find Lexi to be a little too perfect, with too many skills. However, it did move the story along and it did not distract too much from the story. Now that I know that there is more to the series I don't feel as unsatisfied at ...more

Yay, a new series to devour!!

I rarely write reviews even though I read probably 2-3 books a week but this one blew me away and made me devour all three books in the series in two days!
Full disclosure, it's a slow start about half way through I actually looked back at Amazon to make sure it was a romance. BUT that's because it is a series and the romance is a slow burn!
Pros: - Awesome, funny, kick-ass heroine who is seen as an equal and valued member of the boys club.
- lots of hunky and sweet

This is the first book I have read by this author and I can say I am a Fiona Quinn fan. From the first page to last page she keep you captivated. The heroine is a strong, intelligent
kind hearted young lady, who has a sadistic killer after her. Lexie "Lynx" is a well rounded and educated for life by "those she loves". Lexi is very SPECIAL in her own way.

If you want play by play about the book that is not coming from me this I will tell all characters are their own. I will tell you that you will
