Agents Adam and Eve is the first book in a new duology featuring the characters from Jes Drew’s Kristian Clark series.
I should admit up front that I was a little lost when I first startee reading this book, but it wasn’t because I hadn’t read the other books. I was lost because the main character was lost. He starts the book as a man who can’t remember who he is. The beauty of that set of circumstances is thst we get to discover who Kristian Clark is as he does.
While there is a fair bit of action in a book involving a teleporting super spy who deals with multiple dimensions (woot!), the strength of this book is the characters. By the time you put down the book, you’re heavily invested in several of the characters. You really want things to work out for them. So of course, it doesn’t, but then it does. Only it doesn’t, until it does. Until… It keeps you guessing and it defies keeps you turning those pages!
This is a book that doesn’t shy away from its Christian themes, even when the characters do some truly horrible things. perhaps my favorite line in the book is spoken by a character named Liam:
“Remember these two things, Clark. You are perhaps the most powerful man in the multiverse. And the Creator of the multiverse loves you very much.”
A few things I didn’t like. I did get a bit confused over who characters were when the point of view would switch up. I was shocked by the ending, but I think you’re supposed to be to draw you into reading the second book in this duology. I also would’ve liked to know more clearly what the agenda of the organizations involved were. You get a basic idea and a few answers but it leaves a lot of ground to cover in Book 2.
Overall, it was a great read. The characters are well-constructed and genuine, the action is tight, the stakes are real, and the worldbuilding is impressive.
I happily recommend Agents Adam and Eve and give it 4 stars.

Dream not of other worlds…
They call him agent and he answers. They tell him conquer and he does. But there’s something they don’t know. He’s beginning to remember. His name is Kristian Clark. He has a wife and four children. Or he did. But he will find them again, whoever is left, wherever they are, and whatever it takes.
They call her the Aisling. She does their missions only as far as it helps her accomplish her own: to find and rescue the children of a fallen woman. And she will not let anyone get in her way- most certainly not the brainwashed father who has for so long been an unthinking weapon for the government. To save the innocents, she will not hesitate to do whatever it takes- no matter how much it condemns her.
They are the root of a conspiracy that would bring two worlds together, for good or for evil, for better or for worse, for life or for death. Their choices shall echo throughout all eternity
