The Blurb

My friends say Hunter Cayman’s dangerous.
They say he's a threat to everyone in town.
I’m not so sure.
As he stands before me in this crowded club with the lights shining around us, I catch something good under Hunter’s dark facade. Something decent and profound.
I don’t know who or what to believe.
But I will find out the truth.

Aeris Thorne is expecting a restful vacation in the remote town of Deep Cove. But on a stormy night, she meets the alluring and mysterious Hunter Cayman, and her life takes an exhilarating turn.

Aeris is both drawn to him and determined to find out what he’s hiding. It’s clear Hunter has found success with the high-security lab on his vast estate. But what Aeris doesn’t know is that he’s tormented by a secret: the truth behind his research.

As he and Aeris are drawn together, the walls he’s built to protect himself threaten to crumble. At the same time, she begins to wonder if she’s found the key to unraveling her own tragic past. When Aeris’s life is threatened, Hunter is forced to make an impossible decision about her future—one that could change everything.

My Thoughts

What grabbed my first about this book is it's striking cover. I loved the use of the black butterfly wings against the white cover. I then read the blurb & I was intrigued plus Hunter Cayman sounded so mysterious I needed to no more. I'm very grateful to Xpresso Book Tours for the copy of The Butterfly Code and to take part in the blog tour. Be sure to check out the rest of the tour here.

This book was a lovely surprise, I really didn't expect the story to go the way it did and to have the sci-fi edge that it had. I love sci-fi and fantasy though so that added element was a real bonus for me. 

The story centres around Aeris Thorn, a musician who has returned home to spend time with her father before she starts her dream job of playing with the New York Philharmonic. Her quick trip home soon turns into a nightmare when she meets Dr Hunter Cayman and becomes tangled in a web of intrigue and left wondering how it all connects to her mother and how much is her father involved in the strange goings on.

The Butterfly Code has a clever and unique plot and I really enjoyed Wyshynski's storytelling, she had me hooked right from the beginning needing to know how things were going to turn out. I flew through the book totally immersed in the story and fully engaged with the characters. Aeris was a brilliant character, she was driven and determined and made a wonderful protagonist. Hunter Cayman was well written as the tall dark stranger with elements of mystery and danger about him.

I don't really want to say too much more about the book as I am concerned about giving away plot details and spoiling it for those yet to read it. Wyshynski did a wonderful job of pulling together mystery and fantasy, throwing in the paranormal with criminal elements all things that I love in a book and for that reason I will certainly be reading more from this author. The Butterfly Code was action packed from start to finish and I feel that it is a book that is suitable for wide audience. I'm really pleased to see that this is the first in a series as I'm looking forward to seeing where the authors takes the characters in the next book.
