Ocean Kills By Jade Hart - Review, Author Interview, & Giveaway

Goodreads Summary:

Around the world, murderers and rapists pick off the innocent. Killing loved ones, separating families, and ruining lives.

As an eight-year-old girl, Ocean witnessed her family’s massacre and something altered inside her. Twisting her genetic code… unlocking an ability to teleport.

Ocean Breeze was never destined to be normal, especially having been named after air-freshener. She’s a shadow, a ghost—a dark saviour of the innocent. Armed with a switchblade in her bra, and a box-cutter in her pocket, she hunts the filth of the world.

Callan Bliss is a Sydney police officer whose skill-set is far above that of a normal cop. All his fellow officers see is a hard worker who loves to catch perpetrators and surf, but that’s because they don’t know about his past. When Callan arrests a suspicious-looking prostitute, he comes face-to-face with a self-confessed vigilante, and suddenly, his secrets aren’t so easy to keep silent.

Ocean hates the police with a passion, and has no intention of being held captive by a cop, even if he is sexy as hell. Teleporting from under his nose, Ocean hunts her next target—a man responsible for the largest sex ring in South Africa—and now he’s about to die. But she doesn’t count on Callan giving chase, nor the body-quaking lust that consumes them. However, Ocean's dark hobbies take precedence over what her heart wants—her thirst for murdering is killing her too, and not even Callan can save her.

My Thoughts: 

*I recieved this book for review, but that has in no way effected my opinion.*

I really enjoyed the unique story line of this book. Ocean is a woman that survived a brutal attack that killed her entire family. Now at a cost to herself, she rescues others. I thought the fact that Oceans teleporting had side effects was great! Too often we see heroes/heroines that don't have short comings in their abilities.

I also really enjoyed Jade Harts writing style. The story didn't suck me in as quickly as I thought it would but once it did I was hooked. I am very eager to read the next story about Ocean, I need to know what happens next!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5


We have Jade Hart (JH), author of Ocean Kills, here with us today on At Random (AR) for a short, but informative interview.

(AR) I am going to start with an easy one but I just like to know...

*Coffee, Tea or Neither?

(JH) Neither, I don't drink hot drinks. In fact, the only things I drink are water and coke zero. :)


(AR) *Tell us a little bit about yourself.

(JH) Umm, I'm officially called (nationality wise) a Hong Kong Ite. This means I was born and raised in Hong Kong but to English Parents. I've lived around the world and love to travel. I use a lot of my own travel experiences in my writing.


(AR) *When did you know you wanted to write?

(JH) Well, as a child I always wrote little creative stories, but it wasn't until 2009 that I seriously began writing and learning. It was a great learning experience and writing has now become an obsession.


(AR) *Are there any authors that may have inspired you?

(JH) Yes, one in particular: Liani Taylor - Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I love her lyrical writing and out of the norm stories. The feedback that I love to hear is that my work is well written and unique. That's what I wanted to achieve with my career.


(AR) *What are you working on now?

(JH) Four titles actually - just because I'm crazy. 

1. Ocean Slays (book 2 of Ocean Breeze) 
2. Samsara (a New Adult Hindu Urban Fantasy. 
3. Coffee and Cockpits (a New Adult Contemp Romance)
4. Anamorphic Sight (working title) (New Adult Contemp Romance)
