Hotshot pilot Leo Eddowes is afraid of nothing and no one. So when she’s asked to evacuate a man from the wilds of Alaska, she doesn’t hesitate. But with enemies in close pursuit and the weather turning sour, what should have been a simple mission quickly shifts to disaster.
And there’s only one way out.
When Elias Thorne disappeared, he was America’s most wanted. Now he’s spent more than a decade in one of the most remote places on earth, guarding a dangerous secret. Leo’s arrival, quickly followed by a team of expert hunters, leaves him no choice but to join forces with her—and run. Neither is prepared for their reluctant partnership to flare into something as wild and untamed as the frozen world around them…but as desperately cold days melt into scorchingly hot nights, Leo and Elias must learn to dig deep, trust in each other, and forge a bond as strong as the forces of nature.
Stranded together in a frozen wilderness,
There’s nowhere left to run…

“You don’t scare me, Leo Eddowes.” “No?” She sniffled, her voice thick with emotion. “Well you scare the living hell out of me.”
What can I say to make you fully understand how much I believe you and the rest of the world need to read this book? Adriana Anders blows it out of the park with this second installment in her Survival Instincts series. Uncharted follows Leo’s story and picks up in the time gap of the first book’s (Whiteout) epilogue. Leo, an ex Navy pilot finds herself on a manhunt for who her and her team suspect has the missing vial of one of the world’s deadliest viruses. But nothing is as it seems for Leo when her tip goes south and the man she is now on the run with in Alaska’s most harshest terrains, turns out to be America’s most wanted killer.
You guys when I tell you that this book gave me chills and had me yelling in the middle of my office like a banshee, I am not lying to you! I could not keep my composure at all with this one! The suspense, the writing, the characters–the chemistry! I honestly was enthralled the entire way through. Leo and Elias and their fury companion were so much fun and had such an interesting dynamic when they were brought together. I fell hard for this duo who through forced proximity (you gotta love mother nature for that) had to face the secrets they were holding inside, as well as both learning to depend on someone other than themselves for the first time in a long time.
“Jaw hard, she set off shuffling down the back path to Marion’s, humming “These Boots Are Made for Walking” under her breath.
Time to wreak some old-lady havoc on these motherfuckers.”
But above all else, my favorite character in the entire story would have to be Amka. A firecracker in every sense of the word, we must protect her at all costs! Fiercely loyal, independent, and determined to never let her age stop her. Amka is what I aspire to be when I grow up. I absolutely adored every single scene she was in and I loved watching her in her element trying to save her town and those she loved. It was truly a wild ride watching Amka do her thing and I desperately want more of her in the series!
A survival romance to rival all survival romances, Uncharted is a scorching hot and fast paced romance that will leave you breathless as you dive deeper into the rough terrain of Alaska’s wilderness. Like I said before, I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone who wants to dive into some good romantic suspense or just wants a great adventure. Adriana Anders nails that and more with this book and I am already begging for the next one!
