From The Book Junkie Reads . . . N.I.C. (ALMOST, #3) . . .
All these things lead to a set of bread crumbs drawing me closer to the finish line:
Escape Marine Research: Complete. Survival mode activated…
Capture of S.H.A.Y. initiated. Hybrid hunter released…
Shay’s death is certain. There is nowhere else to run…
And maybe this time…Shay is the one to be rescued.

As I began to look at things like this was the first book of the series and pieces began to fall in to place.  I just wanted more and found myself biting my nails.  The world was vast and scope of Miami was just so different in this world. Connection, friendships, loyalties were on a different standard.  I'm wanting more and daring to hope for it. This was a super quick read in a science fiction world were S.H.A.Y, E.R.I.C, A.M.I.E., and N.I.C. have different meanings than just a name.

If I give no other advise. Heed this one.  Read the previous books first. I felt a drift a bit lost and a little confused. This was the first in series that I read. Once I could see past the confusion and the sense of loss. I was able to enjoy the ride. Learning all the different details of this fantastic fantasy/fiction world was intriguing. 
ALMOST series:
S.H.A.Y. - ALMOST, #1
E.R.I.C. - ALMOST, #2
N.I.C. - ALMOST, #3


BLURB
Escape Marine Research: Complete. Survival mode activated…

Shay and her Optional Human Parent Darla escape Dr. Cole and make it across the Miami border from the Marine Research Facility, but their safety comes at a hefty price. Shay thought hitting Eric in the head would save him from being reset, but there was too much blood. She has no idea if he survived or what will happen to N.I.C. without her there.

Capture of S.H.A.Y. initiated. Hybrid hunter released…

If a highly skilled hybrid hunter tracking her through the streets of Miami isn’t enough to worry about, Shay’s corporate sponsor Endre wants something from her too. Threats are in motion to terminate N.I.C. and pull the plug on Shay’s A.M.I.E., essentially killing them both. Shay has no choice but to make a deal with Endre to create inventions for him to sell to potential financial sponsors. But when he ups the stakes and wants Shay to help create a weapon of war, she refuses. She’ll just have to find another way to save N.I.C. and find Eric.

Shay’s death is certain. There is nowhere else to run…

Shay has an impossible choice—be captured by the hybrid hunter on the streets or unlinked from A.M.I.E. for refusing to help Endre. Either way, everything she’s fought so hard to save will be lost. Love has always been stronger than science, though.

And maybe this time…Shay is the one to be rescued.

ALMOST Rescued…
Novella Three in the Almost Series
Dr. Cole

“The hybrid is released…”

I raced over to the containment cell, lifting the doors. Clouds of what looked like steam blew in my face and I coughed. Subject 31 did not move.
Was she dead?
How long had she been in there? My only friend was locked up because of me. It was time she was set free. Would she remember what I did? Did she think I was the enemy? Was I?
Amie faded. “Don’t let anything happen to my little girl.”
Sharp pains shot through me. What was I to my mother?
I shook the thought away and peeked inside the containment.
A girl with short blonde hair and dark eyes who resembled my Amie sat with her knees tucked into her chest.
“Shay 31?” I said.
She glanced up. “Have you found a cure for me?”
I shook my head. “Not yet.” I couldn’t swallow. Does she not remember me? “We’re still working as hard as we can to fix you.”
“Why are you taking me out of containment?”
My lips trembled. “I need your tracking skills to find my little sister. Would you be willing to find her?”
“Where is she?”
“She’s escaped into Miami.”
“That’s a huge place. Have you ever been?”
I shook my head.
“How long do I have to find her before I die?”
I froze.
“How long, S.H.A.Y. subject 59?”
She did remember me.
“It’s Dr. Cole.”
“How long, 59?”
“Dr. Cole.”
“I’m not coming back from this trip, am I?”
“I just need my sister found,” I said. “Then you’ll be put safely back into containment until we discover a cure for you.”
“I thought you were my friend,” she said. “I was nothing but an experiment to you.”
I stiffened. “That was a long time ago.”
“Now you want me to help you find someone you claim is your sister? What do you plan to do to her?”
“Nothing, her sponsors want her alive and immediately back in this facility.”
“If I do this, I don’t want to go back inside here to rot.”
“Our Amie says you must go back inside immediately.”
Subject 31 shook her head. “I said no.”
“Please just find my sister before something detrimental happens to her.”
Subject 31 stepped out of her containment, stretching her limbs. She was tall and lanky with a sharpness in her eyes. “My body feels so achy.”
“Thank you for helping me.”
She shrugged. “I just want out of that box. Please tell our Amie that I’m ready for phase four.”
“Phase four?” I stepped aside. “What are you talking about?”
“It’s none of your concern. Tell our mother what I’ve said.” She sniffed the air, using her hybrid senses…
