My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aeris Thorne is a talented musician that is taking the summer to visit her father before starting performing in the much sought after position she was offered. On a night out Aeris meets the mysterious Dr. Hunter Cayman and finds herself immediately drawn to him even though everyone warns Aeris to stay away from Hunter. When Aeris’s life is threatened Hunter comes to the rescue but then Aeris find herself in the middle of the secrets that Hunter has been hiding.

Starting out reading The Butterfly Code the first thoughts crossing my mind is this has a somewhat Twilight-ish vibe to it. The young somewhat naive girl is taken by the mysterious guy that she’s been warned away from. Then the whole saving Aeris part really reminded me of Twilight so I was honestly thinking to myself what is this, a vampire book? The synopsis is a bit vague really but in the end there weren’t any glittering vampires anywhere to be found and the story turns to an interesting sci-fi plot.

I would say my only complaint really when reading this was towards the beginning, I just felt it had a slow start to it when it took me a while to realize I wasn’t reading another vampire novel. Instead this story has it’s own twists and turns dealing with Hunter being with the Phoenix Research Lab for Highly Contagious Diseases and that will be the only hint I will give at where the story goes. It definitely picks up though and becomes very engaging once the meat of the plot starts to unfold.

Overall, a bit slow start but became a fast paced page turner in the end. A mix of sci-fi, thriller, and romance all wrapped into one.

I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Interesting. I’m glad this blog is on my radar now, it looks like you have a knack for digging up interesting finds on Netgalley. I’ll have to keep my eyes pealed for this. A slow opening never slowed me down if the promise of a good sci-fi plot could keep me going!

    • Thanks Audrey. I do have a habit of picking up the more obscure titles and end up finding some real gems in the bunch so taking a chance here and there can really pay off. 🙂
