“The Consequential Element was fast-paced and well-written. It keeps you guessing, and has elements of suspense, mystery, and intrigue! — Merle Temple, author of A Ghostly Shade of Pale

“There are no brakes on this story. The author always goes full speed ahead. Think of The Bourne Identity with a more coherent plot.”
George Duncan – Amazon Reviewer

“…contains all the elements you would expect from a thriller
– fast moving, lots of action, a political twist, espionage…”

5.0 out of 5 stars As exciting as Raiders of the Lost Ark! August 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A very well written, well researched novel with a heroine who is both strong and vulnerable. The author takes the reader to the Congo with a fascinating story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s action-adventure with a hint of romance. Dee Ann is an excellent story teller and I look very forward to her next novel. I strongly recommend buying The Consequential Element. It’s worth much more than the Kindle price!

I read the book while on a camping trip, so I had little to distract me from the story and I’m glad. The book is fast-paced and there’s a trans-continental chase that ends in Africa. This is where the author excels. Her knowledge of the culture and conflicts is exemplary. She is unflinching in her descriptions when it comes to violence and those who inflict it, but she buffers the horror of guerrilla warfare with her love of the people and the land.

I loved reading “The Consequential Element.” The fast paced intrigue and action held my attention and once I began to read the book I found it difficult to put down. I felt the characters and plot were well formed and well written. The setting of the story, the Dominican Republic of the Congo and Botswana, the view into the Congolese Rebels’ Army of Children, and the creepy crawlies of the jungle, for me, heighten the intrigue.. It is well written, well researched and well worth the read.


4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Mystery and Thriller January 26, 2014

There are no brakes on this story.The author always goes full speed ahead. Think of the Bourne books but with a more coherent plot. Ms. Waite combines African rebels, CIA types, spies, double agents, a mysterious and important mineral, random psychopaths and mixes them up into a very good mystery. In dealing with spies and conspiracies, its’ very easy to go over the cliff. Many, if not most, thrillers do.The plots become incoherent and just don’t stand up under any type of logic. The author comes a bit close to the edge at times but brings all the threads together. There is also some very good prose. I was reading a female SF writer – award winning – before I read this book. Ms. Waite’s prose is just as good, if not better, than the award-winning writer and, to me, her characters are more realistic.

Seriously this is a must to read her character was strong willed I could say Dee Ann had her work cut out for her, the research she would have done on this book would have taken her a while. But in the end she brought to life an ass kicking novel, i’m just so impressed how a walk in the jungle became a rescue mission but for Danielle it was all about revenge. In the end this novel so intrigued me that it made me see what she had seen. The black ops, the rescue, the uncertainty, the pain, the suffering and I am so glad she even gave us romance. Still she left me hungry for more and I so look forward to Danielle’s and Kayden’s continuing story. From start to end left me with chills, fire and excitement, bring on the next one I’m ready.
