Jax Marlin – To Catch A Marlin by T. K. Toppin. I always love when I find a new author that makes me a fan . This book had everything I was looking for in a great read. I had moments of laughing out loud and times of being on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. I like the balance the author gave this story. The characters truly draw readers into the story and the storyline keeps you going deeper. Even the smallest details are well written and make you want to sit back and watch this book come alive right before you eyes. The storyline is well written and paced nicely. I’m excited to read more from this author and I’m really glad I found this book and author. Five stars all the way and highly recommended!
I haven’t read a young teen fantasy novels in a long time. So I was a little nervous if I was going to stay interested in reading this book and not feel like the characters in the book were too young for me to connect with. Well to my surprise I was very entertained. It’s great coming of age story with a lot of action. I love watching apocalyptic movies or tv series. I find myself rooting for Alice to make the right choices when her back was against the wall being so young learning how to use her powers and so much weighing her shoulders. This book had me entrained and on the edge of my seat, just as if I was watching it on a tv series. The way the characters were Introduced and how vivid the story line was you didn’t even need your imagination to be immersed into the book as if you were a character. I was ready to read book number 2. In conclusion, this book is a great read and I recommend this book to my 14 yr old son and to anyone who’s reading this review you won’t be disappointed.

Jax Marlin – To Catch a Marlin was an interesting 4 star read.
This story is set in the future. Pedroni is an officer and is assigned to look for a vigilante (Jax) that has taken things into their own hands when it comes to criminals.
Jax is the vigilante that Pedroni is looking for. But of course she doesn’t see herself that way, she is going after terrible people which stems from something in her past. When they meet, there is an instant connection between them. As Pedroni gets to know Jax he starts to struggle with right and wrong and starts to understand why she is doing what she is. I liked how Jax was leaving things for Pedroni. What will Jax do in the end? Will he let his feelings get in the way?
There is so much more to this great read.
I was drawn in by both characters and really loved each of them. Jax is a strong mysterious woman who can take care of herself. Pedroni was great as well. We get suspense, danger, and so much more. The author pulls you right in with her writing and you feel like you’re right there with the characters. All of the secondary characters were great. I will warn that there are some scenes that could cause triggers for some. I look forward to reading more in this series.
Jax Marlin: To Catch a Marlin is the first book in the To Catch a Marlin Series by T.K Toppin. This is my first read from this author and I was not disappointed.

Jax Marlin is a vigilante in the 24th century and has decided she must stop four criminals from forming an alliance. Will Jax Marlin get to them first or will Special Inspector Michael Pedroni?
This is a well thought out story and I look forward to what is to come next in this series. If I am to judge by the first book this will be a great series.
Wow!!! What a thrill ride I was taken on by Toppin! This new (to me) author completely blew away all of my expectations. Non stop action and suspense from beginning to end, I was hooked immediately.
