There was a lot to like in this YA thriller--and some bumps in the road that kept me from loving it.

First the things I liked. The central mystery as it unfolded was interesting, and avoided black and white hats. It was a believable issue, with creepily believable reactions on the part of those taking said action.

The pacing overall was fast, accelerating steadily as the teens drove the action. I liked the main character, daughter of the first female President. I mostly enjoyed the voice, finding

I have been a fan of Shannon Greenland's books that she has written under this name or the initials S.E Green. I have read nearly all of them, ever since 2011-2012 when I first discovered her series The Specialists which were a group of teen spies, this was my first introduction to a theme that I found myself loving for many years to follow and still to date. So when I saw T-Minus offered on Netgalley and for a tour, I knew I had to read it. T-Minus takes us into the life of our main character S ...more

This was an absolutely fun read. I left all my analysis aside and read the book for the pure thrill of it. Sophie was the daughter of the first female American President. A terrorist threat forced her family to separate out. Her brother Erik was missing and soon kidnapped by a terrorist. Sophie had to use all her skills and her intelligence to get to the truth along with the help of her friends.

My first book by Shannon Greenland was a pure 3 hours of adrenaline. The book didn't give me time to

This is a younger version of the show 24 and it shows.

“T-Minus” finds Sophie ripper from her life and forced into seclusion following the news that a domestic terrorist group is after her mother, the President of the United States. With the news that her brother is missing, Sophie skips out on her security detail to uncover the truth behind the attacks and save her family.

If you can ignore the many logistical errors that surround the way the CIA and Secret Service act in this book it will prob

I can finally take a breath.

I volunteered to read this book because it was labeled as a young 24, and I was such a fan of that show. Well this is exactly that, and boy does it deliver an emotional punch. A fantastic set of characters. Nonstop action. Cute romance. Smart plot.

Love love love.

Once I got past the rather eyebrow-raising premise of this book and let myself go with the flow, so to speak, I had a good time watching Sophie fight back when the unthinkable happens to her family. What makes her story so intriguing is that her family is the First Family, not your everyday family in the local neighborhood. To say the stakes are much higher is not an overstatement.

Mind you, Sophie isn’t entirely alone in her fight against whoever the bad guys are. In fact, a strong and very appe

Have you ever seen those posters where it’s the body counts for all of the Shakespeare plays? I haven’t read a lot of Shakespeare, but I think that if you added this book on there, it would take the cake for most deaths. Honestly, the characters just kept dropping like flies. The author broke my heart!

This book was right up my alley if you take away the tons of deaths. I love me a good spy/action book so this was perfect. Plus, throw in just the tiny bit of romance and it becomes so much better!

Overall, this was a pretty good story with lots of potential!! I was hooked to find out how and why it all went down. However, I felt like it lacked some background information about the characters and the country for me to be fully emerged into and engaged with the the story.

Shannon Greenland's T-Minus is being sold as 24 for teens. Pretty good description. This espionage thriller sets a tight ticking clock and high personal stakes that will keep readers turning pages until the end. 17-year old Sophie Washington's mother is the first female President of the USA. One night, there is a legitimate threat against her mother which protocol dictates that the Secret Service separate all four members of So

Sophie is awakened in the middle of the night by her assigned secret service guard with the information that there is a potential terrorist threat against her mother, the president, and that her brother is missing. Soon begins the longest, most dangerous and challenging day of Sophie's life as she is thrust into the middle of something she doesn't understand and lives are at stake- including her's.

When I read the blurb of T-Minus, my attention was caught. It reminded me of 24 Hours. Since I was a fan of that show, I knew that I needed to read this book. I am glad I did!! T-Minus was a fast, explosive read that I got lost in.

Don't expect anyone not to die. Shannon Greenland's YA political thriller has a larger body count than I expected, but that's what makes it exciting, right?

Sophie Washington: teenager with a crush on her best friend, daughter of the first female POTUS, skilled member of the TIA (like the CIA but for kids). Now she can add America's only hope to that list.

What starts off as a normal day for Sophie and the rest of the First Family, turns into a terror attack, masterminded by someone inside the Whi

T-MINUS is a fast-paced YA thriller that is billed as 24 for teens. Sophie Washington, the character from whose perspective we view the world, is the daughter of the first female POTUS. The book begins when she is woken at night for a security protocol due to a terrorist demand for her mother. Soon, she learns that it may be organized by people on the inside, and she is not safe with the special security guarding her. Furthermore, her brother is missing, and Sophie may be the only one w

I love a good thriller, and I have been reading and enjoying a lot of books with presidential/political families lately, so T-Minus was a great mix of the two for me. It’s definitely like the YA version of a David Baldacci or Vince Flynn book, so if those appeal to you, I think this will as well.

I am so excited to have another of Shannon’s books for you.

So if you are one of my readers, then you would have likely spotted the other previous books that I have reviewed for her, we have Vanquished and then Ultimate Sacrifice. Joining my collection is T-Minus and I was really looking forward to this baby.

To begin with, I was not disappointed at all.

Because I am familiar with Shannon’s style, I knew roughly what to expect and I was certainly not let down one bit. I could not put the book down

I'd give this a 3.5 rating (rounded up to 4, since GR doesn't do half stars). There were a number of things I really liked, and a few that didn't work as well for me.

What I enjoyed:
~the premise -- as soon as I read about it, I knew I wanted to read and find out how it would go.
~the overall story -- this was definitely good, and I was engaged from beginning to end.
~the likable characters -- even though the characters didn't have the complexity I personally wanted to see, they were all likable. I

I enjoyed Shannon Greenland's "The Specialists" series, so I was eager to check out T-Minus when given the opportunity. I am glad I did, because it was an enjoyable book. Sophie Washington, daughter of the first female President, wakes up on her seventeenth birthday only to be told that a domestic terrorist group has put out a hit on her mother, the President.

The first page launches into action and holds an exciting pace all the way to the end.

It's Sophie's seventeenth birthday, and it's one she'll never forget. She's the daughter of the first woman President, but is thrown into a roller coaster thriller as her mother, and the rest of the family, are targeted by a group for assassination. The family is split up for their own protection and brought to safe houses...everyone but Sophie's older brother, that is. He sneaked out to party during the night

This book was so great that I’m sad that the reading adventure is already over for me! Why? Couldn’t it be a bit longer? Or can we get a sequel please? That would be wonderful! Thank you very much! And now instead of complaining and crying I guess that I should start with all the amazing things this book has to offer!

First of all can we talk about the action? This was one hell of a ride, T-Minus is action-packed and I L.O.V.E.D that so much. This is the kind of thriller that I craved

'T-Minus' is an exciting new young adult thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats the whole time. To me, this wasn't a wholly unique concept or plot line, but the author put her own touches into the story to make it stand apart from others out there. I'm a huge fan of this genre, so I was definitely excited to read this one. I was hoping for suspense, excitement, and some twists - and that was exactly what I got.

Things you should know about me: I write novels! Some have won awards. Others have been bestsellers. Under Shannon Greenland (my real name) you’ll find spies, adventure, and romantic suspense. Under S. E. Green (my pen) you’ll find dark and gritty fiction about serial killers, cults, secret societies that do bad things, and whatever else my twisted brain deems to dream up.
