Battered Earth Review by D. Hilleren

A big thank you to the author for providing this book to me free of charge in exchange for my review.

About the book:
In the new decade, the world gathers in Stockholm for a controversial climate forum. The stakes are high, as violent and unpredictable storms increasingly plague the earth and sea levels encroach on coastal shorelines. Nicole Hunter, head of the richly endowed Everson Foundation, leads the charge to invest in promising research that will hopefully impede environmental devastation. But her contentious stance has been questioned by others, and now her career and her life are both in jeopardy.

Meanwhile, unseen forces assemble to sabotage any breakthrough that could challenge existing global energy markets. Oliver Odin, a mysterious international agent, is sent by the Security Alliance to investigate ominous threats intercepted by intelligence sources. The evidence leads him to the beautiful, strong-willed Nicole and the brainy scientists attending the forum. But when scientists on the verge of a promising discovery are gunned down at a reception held by a United States senator, it becomes apparent that powerful forces will stop at nothing to prevent the world from being saved.

As a few brave souls attempt to rescue the planet from environmental calamity, they soon realize that their mission comes with a price—and some will pay with their lives.

About the author:
This is from her website in her words.
Prior to writing my debut novel, I worked as a global brand director at Nike, Inc. for twenty-five years. My world travels created an ongoing fascination with other cultures and human behavior. Now, without the pressure of the corporate world, I reside in Central Oregon, where I pursue my passion for writing, painting, and horsemanship with my two young Kiger Mustangs.

My review:
I was blown away with how many chapters this book has; however, the book only has 239 pages. The chapter are fairly short. The characters and plot are so fun to read about. My favorite character in the book is Nicole. She is so fun to learn about. I do not like going into super details because I would be super mad if someone did that and ruined the book for me. Part of the great experience is when you actually read the book yourself and not learn the story from someone else. I would totally recommend this book to everyone from teen years and on. 

Stars I give this book:
