You know that thing that sometimes happens when your consciousness threads so far into a story that you forget you’re reading a book? That happens in Miles To Go.

Amy Dawson Robertson deftly takes command of many characters, locales and plot twists with confidence. From senators to terrorists. Washington D.C. to Tajikistan. Men and women all caught in a global struggle. This is a superb action adventure and a political thriller with some romance thrown in for good measure. And it’s not all brains

Rennie Vogel is compelling. This story never takes a breath. I was completely held captive by the suspense and the intense narrative. Loved the pacing and the detail.
Amy Dawson Robertson wrote a book that, for me, is unforgettable.

The first thing I noticed was how quickly I fell into the story and started rooting for Rennie Vogel. Her guts and determination drew me in immediately. The story took twists I didn't expect but I never once doubted that I was running by her side. And I was thirsty-- a

I had the good fortune to be one of the folks who read a draft of this book & I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fun, exciting read. I can't wait 'til it's published so I can read it again in its final format!

So excited to see this come out in February! I have been lucky enough to have a sneak peak ahead of time. It is a fast paced thriller, action packed & exciting. And also satisfyingly contemplative & lyrical. With one of the sweetest endings I've ever read. Don't miss it!

Despite the inclusion of women throughout the military and government agencies, there are still certain areas where the overriding belief is that women do not belong, period. One of these in particular is special forces teams where there is both a strong bond among team members and a reliance on the superior strength of every member of the team during a mission. Miles to Go focuses on an FBI special forces team and a female character who is particularly su

What a ride! Not at all what I was expecting, not entirely satisfying, but very very good.

I received this book in a giveaway. Though it was finally great to read that a woman actually pulled off a coup, totally alone for the most part, under duress, and terrible circumstances, there were parts of the book I did not enjoy. When I read a book of this nature, in this case, FBI counterterroism, I read it for the story involved in the events of the character as relates to her/his work with the agency they are with. However, in reading the book, I wonder why in many of these types of novel ...more

"Miles to Go" is an impressive, ambitious page-turner of a novel set in the shadowy and brutal world of international terrorism. This is an exciting, fast-paced adventure that introduces us to Rennie Vogel, a superwoman of sorts, at least physically, driven by the need to live on the sharp edge of life. Not surprisingly, she occasionally gets cut.

The story is presented from almost every character's point of view, offering us a glimpse into not only the minds of the "good" guys, but also the min

I finished this a month ago and forgot to mark it as done!

I absolutely loved the action in this book. It made me want to parkour off of things and fly through woods and take down bad guys. I was so tense the whole way through and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen.

I do believe that the romance wasn't a necessary component of the book, and it would have done just fine (if not, better) without it, but it didn't kick me out of the story too much. Gonna definitely pick up Scapegoat and re

I’m finding writing a review of this book difficult because I found myself feeling remarkably indifferent by the time I finished reading it. For me the ending was unsatisfying and I couldn’t understand why the author bothered throwing in the romance at the end of the story. When I started reading the story I was really intrigued by the military/special ops component and I would have liked to have gotten to know Rennie Vogel in more detail.

"Miles to Go" was even better on second reading than the first! The first time I read it I had to read it fast because the Intrigue was so intriguing, had to rush to find out how it all ends. On second reading there was a lot of deep thinking and wisdom woven in the story that I totally missed the first time.
Am so happy the sequel, "Scapegoat" is already on its way to me!
Jun 04, 2013 rated it it was amazing
I enjoyed the intrigue of the story and physical demands required by the main character Rennie. Although grueling and pushing the body and mind to a place only some can comprehend, it was a story that makes you think about the military and the role of women on special forces teams. This is not your typical lesbian story which I thought was a good thing.

I really liked the main character and am looking forward to more to come. The intrigue got to be a little too detailed, and although I realliy liked the romance it was hard to get past the lack of showers and length of imprisonment of the captured.

I loved it! Lots of action and a little bit of love. I substract one star for the ending which was too unfinished for my taste and I am glad that the sequel is already available.
