Review of Ocean Kills

Ocean Kills (Ocean Breeze #1)
By Jade Hart

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 Rating: 4.5/5

My thoughts:

I received a free ecopy of this book in a giveaway and only managed to read it recently. Why I waited so long I have no idea!
I haven’t read such an exhilarating  book in quite some time. However, I did think there were more details of the romance and love-making between Ocean and Callan than I would have cared to know, but the adventure and surprising twists balanced it well. 

I rarely read about teleporting and found that to be an interesting concept in Ocean Kills. A lot of ethical questions were raised in my mind throughout the story. What makes killing ‘right’ or wrong? Is it better to purge the world of evil using somewhat brutal methods or should you trust in the law to dish out the appropriate punishments? Most importantly though, is there hope for Ocean?
I cannot wait to read the next in this series. I want to know more about these black marks,  whether there are others out there similar to Ocean , and more about the true identity of Maurice.
