October 31, 2012
A Hitman with a Conscience.

Reeling from a series of demanding assignments, Antony is desperate for some downtime.

While Antony struggles to find a way out of his till death do us part contract, he's faced with the decision of a lifetime: kill another man who may be innocent, or do what's right even if it puts his family in jeopardy.

My Review:
I really liked this book! C. Michelle Jefferies is a great writer. She knows how to write action, and pull in her readers from the first page. Emergence is the kind of book that you never want to put down until the last page. The main protagonist can be aloof at times, but also is a deep thinker. He grows on you so much! Antony is someone that you can see being the next James Bond; he is that charismatic, but he is also very deadly in his role as an assassin. 

I was so totally shocked at the ending I wanted to throw the book across the room...until...I learned that Emergence is a prequel to a series. I was relieved to hear that information and liked the book again. The prequel leads into a new beginning for Antony. The main character's life is changed because of what happens in the prequel. As I always do, I am giving out NO information because that would totally ruin it for other readers. Just know, this is one book that you don't want to miss reading. If Emergence is an example of C. Michelle Jefferies writing skills, there is a whole lot more that readers have to look forward to! This story is appropriate for adults and older teens because of the violence. Bring on more of this series...quickly!!

About the Author:
 C. Michelle Jefferies practically grew up in a library, and she spent her early years reading books with her mother. When Michelle was ten, she realized she wanted to write stories instead of just reading them. In high school, she met another writer, who inspired her to write a full-length book instead of just short stories. Michelle finished that 189-page handwritten novel the summer of her junior year. She married her best friend and put her writing on the back burner while she focused on raising her seven children and volunteering as a breastfeeding counselor in her community. When her children were old enough for her to spend a few hours on the computer without them burning the house down, Michelle returned to writing and hasn’t stopped since. She can often be found writing or editing with a child in her arms or under her feet. With a passion for secret agents and all things Asian, she writes technical suspense and futuristic thrillers about bad boys turned good, all while beating herself up in karate class as she works toward her black belt in tang soo do.
