    One thought on “Decoy”

    1. I really loved this story. It was unique and engaging. I loved the science and the science fiction mixed in with the storyline. I did think the story was going to be about one thing and it went a whole other direction however I was not disappointed because it was a really good book. I give this story a solid 4 stars. Noel is a scientist that works on antidotes for biological warfare however it is not this job that gets her pulled to this top secret base but supposedly her minor in psychology. Th [...]

    2. I'm torn on how I feel about this book. I did like several aspects of it but I was slightly confused on the reasoning behind why some things happened. Namely, why did Killian and crew carry on their deception as long as they did when they knew that there was a potential for danger for Noel? That one stumps me. I understand the deception they used to get her there but once they had verified that she was who she was, why continue the lie? -pauses to think about it- Sorry, I got nothing.Now, I did [...]

    3. I had many, many problems with this one. I decided to read it based on the blurb. When I read the hero is, “a genetically engineered soldier designed for exceptional strength and intelligence.” I couldn’t resist. The heroine works with stolen samples of other countries biological weapons and tries to create vaccines for US soldiers. Hello, over the top plot. I like it. Except once I read the book, it all fell apart. And if you do want to read this one, there are spoilers coming. First of a [...]

    4. First Thoughts:This book was definitely really interesting, the concept and pace of this book was really unique and new to me. I loved the fact that I didn’t totally understand it all at once; it took time for each little detail to sink in. There was plenty of action, fight scenes and mysteries…I think one of the best aspect of this book was the fact that it had the sci-fi and thriller vibe to it. It kind of really made me think of all those movies I watched that had a similar vibe…this wa [...]

    5. Brought to you by OBS reviewer LeeLieutenant Noel Casey doesn’t fit into any preconceived molds or stereotypes as a character. She is a 26-year-old scientist in the United States Army who loves makeup, skin care, and high heels as much as she loves testing vaccines and serving her country through her studies of biological warfare. She can melt at the touch of a man she finds herself attracted to but will stand up for herself against all matter of unwanted attentions. She has a mysterious past [...]

    6. Review also posted at Red Hot BooksShort but sweet, this story really rocks it out. Told from first person point of view, I thought the writing was smart and refreshing.  This doesn’t mean that it didn’t get a bit too flowery at times but I’ll let that slide because I think that Debelius has a winner on her hands. As a self-published book, I didn’t find any noticeable syntax errors or editing issues. Excellent job on that! Bio-geneticist Lieutenant Noel Casey has her new assign [...]

    7. Oh, this one just grabbed me from the start with its mysterious military installation and odd duty assignment for the heroine, Noel Casey. Everything about the story stayed shadowy and mysterious until well over the halfway point. I love that off-kelter feeling I get when I'm reading a nicely developing plot.The story opens with Lt. Noel Casey, a scientist, being assigned to a top secret base. She soon learns that her assignment isn't for her role as a leading germ expert, but in her secondary d [...]

    8. 3.5This book was not at all what I expected from reading the blurb. That's not always a bad thing, but I wanted to read the story described. The one I got wasn't a bad story, it just wasn't the one I set out to read. Having said that I did like quite a few aspects of it. I liked that even when frightened, confused, lied to, exhausted and overwhelmed Noel still held her own. Yes, she got pushed around by the men a bit, but she was still strong willed and determined. I liked Killian as the intimid [...]

    9. Hmmn where to start with this one… I am a little conflicted because, while I admire the perseverance and determination of anyone who writes a novel and tries to get it to market, for me this novel was the book equivalent of the good, the bad and the ugly (although not necessarily in equal parts). Let’s get the bad bits out of the way first. For me it was mostly to do with unmet expectations. Firstly, the author bills herself as a writer of paranormal romance incorporating Sci-fi and thriller [...]

    10. 3.5 starsWhen Lieutenant Noel Casey, a scientist is assigned to an isolated Military mission in Fort Braden she is of the belief that her scientific experience and skills are required. Instead, when she arrives at the male dominated military base, it is her intuitive and personal skills that are needed. She is assigned to determine whether a genetically engineered soldier, Killian, is loyal to his service prior to serving for the country.Although, Noel is disgusted by the treatment of Killian, s [...]

    11. This story took me in from the moment I started reading. I must say I couldn’t predict it at all. It starts with a woman working in a military base. Being one of three women in whole base is not very easy. A woman must handle with many problems (read: men). Everyday bad situations were well described.The sci-fi story was interesting and very refreshing. Genetic projects, genetic byproducts, aliens, radium. Area 51, forget it. This is much more than that. Creatures in the woods, crows all over [...]

    12. "Decoy" by Michaela Debelius is a very satisfying book that leaves you wanting more. The beginning immediately grabbed my attention and as the story progressed, it did not disappoint. The main characters have steamy chemistry that lured me in. On top of that is a suspenseful plot that kept me guessing the whole way through. I thoroughly enjoyed taking this journey with Noel Casey as she tried to figure out the truth of what was really going on at Fort Braeden. I highly recommend this book to any [...]
