Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

Shane soon discovers that there are certain individuals who possess the unique ability to access untapped regions of the brain with extraordinary results - including telekinesis, super strength, and reversal of the aging process. Known as Greater-Thans, this rare breed is recruited by OI, where they are rigorously trained using ancient techniques to cultivate their powers and wield them responsibly.

But in the depths of America's second Great Depression, where the divide between the haves and the have-nots has grown even wider, those who are rich - and reckless - enough have a quick, seductive alternative: Destiny, a highly addictive designer drug that can make anyone a Greater-Than, with the power of eternal youth. The sinister cartel known as The Organization has begun mass-producing Destiny, and the demand is epidemic. But few realize the drug's true danger, and fewer still know the dirty secret of Destiny's crucial ingredient.

Michelle Mac Mackenzie knows the ugly truth. And as one of the Obermeyer Institute's crack team of operatives, she's determined to end the scourge of Destiny. But her kick-ass attitude gets knocked for a loop when she finds that one of the new test subjects is none other than Shane, the same smoldering stranger who just rocked her world in a one-night stand. Although Shane isn't a Greater-Than like Mac, as an ex-SEAL, he's got talents of his own.

But Mac's got powerful reasons to keep her distance from him - and reasons that are just as strong to want him close. She's used to ri... Download and start listening now!

    " unusual boo - a bit futuristic....very different from Brockman's Troubleshooter series that I love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/30/2014

    " This was a different book from her normal I am not quite sure I liked it. It was to long and sent in the future. "

    " I love Suzanne Brockmann and Born to Darkness is a book with many of the features in books I love. Unfortunately it did not come together for me. I wanted to love it and expected to, but did not. I did not like the characters so couldn't jump into the story or world. I don't think I'll continue this series, but I'm not sure. I really love Suzanne Brockmann so who knows? "

    " very enjoyable for the romantic thriller/bit o' sci-fi futeristic twist genre :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/9/2014

    " Wow! I can't wait for the next book!! Shane and Mac go though some hard stuff. Mac needs to learn to trust others. The action in this book is also great. I really enjoyed it. I don't want to giveaway anything too much in the book. So with that said this is a book that I would read again and a series that I can't wait to contune. "

    " The story line and concept were great but the detailed sexual activities were a little much for me. I know some of the references were necessary based on the story, but some of them were just way too much for me. I realize, that others may enjoy them so this is just my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mei | 1/1/2014

    " WOW!!! I loved it!!! It was really, really good! The action was non-stop and all the protagonists (more than just Shane and Mac) were great! The idea was at the same time old and new, but executed very well! I cannot wait for the next book! "

    " Disappointing - The heroine was extremely unlikable. With so many couples there was not enough character development so that you cared about any of the characters. Tired of so much focus on the gay couple when they are not the primary relationship in the book. Get off the soapbox already. I understand that the author's personal life is hugely focused on PFLAG but I'm tired of it bleeding through to her books. I'm fine with gay characters in the books (it would be nice to see the occasional lesbian - if she'd like to be truely inclusive) but not when the time spent on them does not allow the primary characters enough time to become fully developed. The world building was weak and did not feel fully realized. As a reader of all genres, and someone who reads a lot of paranormal it kind of felt like she was just leaping onto the paranormal bandwagon. Very disappointing for a book by an author who has always been an autobuy for me since her days writing for Loveswept. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to the next installment. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 12/18/2013

    " 2.5 stars. It was promising at first then it dragged and got annoying then it got dumb and that's kind of how it cycled and then recycled throughout the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kisha | 12/1/2013

    " The only problem with this book is that I can't read the next one yet. ;) "

    " exceptional. Questioned the premise before reading, but once started couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andraea | 9/13/2013

    " There were a few slow parts. But I liked the idea of neural integration, which was a nice change from other sci-fi novels. "

    " She is one of my most favorite authors, however I really did not really connect with the story line and genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Sturgeon | 5/19/2013

    " Really interesting plot. The ending was a little too quick for my liking but I can't wait to read more! "

    " sci-fi, romance, action= great read!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Nelson luciano | 2/20/2013

    " I loved the premise and the beginning of this book. I was enjoying the characters and the complex moral dilemma of Destiny. However, somewhere halfway through it turned into too much of a romance, and I struggled to finish it. "

    " The trouble with Suzanne Brockmann is that you never know if you will like her book until you read it. Usually, I can get to know an author and know that I will like most of what (s)he writes. This one was a little too weird for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey | 6/29/2012

    " I liked the neurological/supernatural premise of this book - made for an interesting read. And Brockmann's work is always fun to read. She adds just enough suspense to drive the plot in cool ways. "
