The Blue Heart Mission is the captivating third instalment in The Kiko Ochisan Adventure series by Lina Vine. This series just seems to get better and better with each new book. It is a quick and easy fast paced thrilling adventure- with drama, action, political intrigue, and some mystery – the story, and series as a whole, is very detailed and descriptive, transporting the reader into the story. I really liked the first two books, but I think this has become my firm favourite of the series, so far.
We met Kiko Ochisan in the first book, ‘In the Land of the Crane’, where she was a former Secret Agent for Japan. A lot has happened over the course of the previous two books and now, in this book, Kiko is pitted against the might of the KGB, and the powerful Black Hats- which will once again push and test Kiko in so many ways. What happens you may ask? Well, you really should get yourself a copy and find out all the gripping, action-packed details for yourself- you are sure to love Kiko and her adventure/s as much as I have!
Even though this is the third book in a series, you could read it as a standalone. But I really recommend reading the entire series in the correct sequence, to get the full Kiko experience and see how this character has developed over the course of the series. I feel that this would help make your reading experience of this book so much more enjoyable.
As with the first two books, this is a novella sized story which has a lot going on in a small space- but it never felt rushed or cut short in any way. A wonderful addition to the series, and I am really looking forward to seeing what Kiko does next in Death on the Flower Island, releasing in the Fall of 2018!
Thank you, Lina Vine!
