More lists with this book...
Having just read Whiteout, I was very hyped up to read Leo's story and to get to know more about this tough pilot chick. I was also intrigued to meet Elias and find out what his secrets were.
Even more so than Whiteout, this book jumped right into the action. Leo is thrown right into the deep end and she is very quickly thrust into danger and ends up in the company of Elias.
Elias Thorne has been living in exile for 10 y ...more
Uncharted hit the ground running from the first chapter in an expertly paced story between two strong, equally capable, and determined protagonists. All while learning to put their full trust in one another in order to survive being pursued in the Alaskan wilderness. This story was written in a style that has consistently drawn me to this author’s work - steady and natural pacing, realistic characterizations, vivid details, and skillfully written sensuality. Add in some impressive suspen ...more
Survival with proximity
The second book in this series did not disappoint me at all, in fact, it lived up to all my hopes. It was a new couple and I wondered if I could feel the same connection as the previous couple. The answer was I did and quickly.
The story started with a bang and with Leo, a pilot, brave and a bit stupid gung-ho. She held the stage until Elias entered the story and together they made compelling reading. I want to say nothing about the plot ...more
Wait. That's not what I meant.
Her first book in the series, Whiteout, was an epic tale of grumpy vs. sunshine traveling together through the Antarctic wilderness on the run from bad guys while their food supply slowly dwindles down. I was on the edge of my seat with anticipat ...more
I have been itching to read a book set in the Alaska wilds and am I quite glad that this is my first one. It really displays the topography and the characters are just so loveable.
I will try to review this book without giving much away. It is really best if you into this one without knowing to much to prevent spoilers. Leo is an amazing pilot and she and her team have been sent to find a man who is suspected to have ...more
Uncharted is book two in the Survival Instincts series of closely connected books. Read in order to get the best result.
Leo and the rest of her team have separated to track down the one other source of the virus code. She has followed a lead to a remote Alaskan resort village and the ...more
Adriana Anders’ Whiteout was one of my most unexpected favorite reads of last year. The second book in the Survival Instincts series, Uncharted, continues the overarching story of thwarting Chronos’ quest for genocide and profit. This time, pilot Leo Eddowes and her team are trying to find a scientist hiding in the mountains of Alaska before Chronos finds him. Only a half step ahead of a host ...more
" I want it (...) All of it. Everything you've got to give - good or bad. The hard shit. The sad. O want every little bit of you. (...) You don't scare me, Leo Eddowes."
After reading Whitheout, I was super curious to see what had happened to Leo.
Thanks to @netgalley and @sourcebookscasa for providing me with an advanced copy.
Like the first one, the action in this book takes place in a secluded place, this time in Alaska, and I love stories that take place in secluded places. The story st ...more
Quick spoiler (ish) about the fate of two of the characters, because I know it mattered to me going into it: (view spoiler)[ Both Bo (the dog) and Amka (the old lady) live! They both make it through to the end, and I would have been devastated if they hadn't. So if you're worried about them like I was, you're good to read on! (hide spoiler)]
I absolutely loved this book and I couldn't put it down. You can read this as a stan ...more
Uncharted follows the story of Leo Eddowes, a character that was previously presented as an brave and excellent pilot that is stranded in Alaska searching for a key person in the team's investigation.

‘Uncharted’ was the book I was chomping at the bits to read ever since I finished ‘Whiteout’—a brilliant run-for-your-life-and survive (in the extreme cold) type of story. Much like its predecessor, ‘Uncharted’ is written in the same vein where survival at all costs while dodging a shadowy enemy is pretty much what the whole book is about.
It’s breathless action the whole way, from start to finish, obscuring perhaps, even the finer details of why Elias and Leo were where they were in th ...more
It takes about half of the book to get to any real "romance", but it is very much worth the wait! Leo and Elias were like molten lava.... the heat just oozed between the two of them. It took their sexual tension a while to build, but when it did, the explosion was HOT.
I'm a sucker for a take-charge, grumpy loner of a hero. Elias was all th ...more
Initial reaction: WOW I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE.
Uncharted is the second book in the Survival Instincts series (I do recommend reading these in order due to the underlying plot) and boy, does it keep the questions going. To keep things basic, there's a virus that everyone is trying to get their hands on, including an insane government corporation called Chronos. Leo
This is one of those books you should not start before you go to bed because JUST when you think about putting it down something crazy happens and you have to find out how these two are going to get out alive. I usually have a hard time with contemporary action/romance because there always seems to be too much of one or the other but this book really had the perfect balance of both. The th ...more
I can’t think of another romance author who writes really physical books like Adriana Anders does—the intensity of how the characters in the Survival Instincts series constantly combat extreme environments is relentless, the things they push their bodies to do is extraordinary, & the fact that she makes these setting-rich books feel compelling & beautiful & raw & at times, otherworldly, is really admi ...more
