Aeris Thorne returns home to Deep Cove to visit her father and friends, she is expecting a quiet rest. Her life is mapped out and includes jobs where her music can and will be appreciated. Music connects her to her mother who died a violent death. During her stay in Deep Cove, she meets Hunter. She meets Hunter outside a club; a dark, mysterious man with reflecting eyes, a familiarity and a sinister secret that will rock her world. Hunter and Aeris are connected by a chain of past and current events.
Not one to shy away, Aeris finds herself immersed in undercover operations, secrets, genetic research and more. The connection between Aeris and Hunter forces Hunter to come to a sudden and deadly decision – can he save her before it is too late and at what cost? Can Hunter protect Aeris against herself and the evils stalking her while still keeping her in the dark?
Sue Wyshynski captures her reader’s attention as she builds the story slowly and expertly developing characters and the plot in a rhythmic manner. Further, Wyshynski’s writing style is smooth and almost poetic in description. She does nothing gratuitously whether it is violence or love making. Her words flow painting a sensuous picture without vulgarity.
“Gentle then more urgent; what he wants, I want; what sends exploding fireworks into his mind sends them exploding in my mind too. … strong fingers … entwining legs …a sea of passion sweeps us aloft; a single soul, single mind, a single body.”
I enjoy Wyshynski’s writing skill; her ability to let the story develop while also keeping her readers hooked and feeling the same emotional plunge as the characters.
The Butterfly Code moves at a face pace but not so much as to leave one lost. I found myself caught up in the action and waiting for the other shoe to fall, much like Hunter and Aeris. Fast paced action and romance.
I felt this book was geared more towards older teens/young adults. I look forward to hearing more by this author.
The narrator, Tanya Eby, did an excellent job of capturing and then projecting the rhythm of Wyshynski’s writing building excitement and using careful pauses. Eby's voice was calming and when appropriate she injected the right amount of emotion into the reading making the book come alive for me. The poetic prose rolled off her tongue.
There were no issues with production.

I should have stopped listening but once I start a book I find it hard to stop. The leading lady in this could be good story was more self doubting than Bella and what's her face from Fifty Shades of Grey. Given the content the performance was good, but still this isn't a listen to bother with.
