Book & Author Details:
Blood Ties (Out of the Box 25) by Robert J Crane
Publication date: 15th May 2019
Genres: Sci Fi, Superhero

When a vicious attack by an unstoppable enemy sends Sienna Nealon looking for help, she finds it in the most unlikely of places:


No, not the day. Nor the movie. The Guy.

Guy Friday: Strongman. Rapper. All-around idiot.

Facing the strongest enemy she’s ever gone against, Sienna is left with no choice but to rely on Friday to help her as she races to solve a mystery that will take her into the digital depths of Silicon Valley. She will ward off enemies, mercenaries, hipsters…and face her greatest challenge:

A man with no common sense or connection to reality whatsoever. Friday. The man. The myth. The legend in his own mind.

And he’s her only hope.


A Sienna story with Friday in it? Come on, you know it’s going to be totally KITTENS!

As is customary, this story is told from multiple points of view. And the fact that one is Friday’s, lifts this story with a humourous and sometimes slightly disturbing narrative.

As is also customary, Sienna is once again facing an apparently impossible to beat bad guy. But this feels different. This feels like, just possibly, she is working her way back (oh so slowly) towards a potential HEA. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t see that happening any time soon, given the teasers laid for the future story arc.

But help and support comes from unexpected avenues. And doesn’t that just add a hint of hope to this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
