To those of you who have read these.... do you need to read the Bodyguard series before Black Ops? From what I understand, some characters from the first series appear in the Black Ops?
I need another good series to sink my teeth in to, and since I have the first (To The Edge) I thought maybe I'd try them out. I hate to read a series & not have them all, though. Before I go spending credits left & right, I figured I'd ask for opinions. :)
I wouldn't say it's absolutely necessary to read the Bodyguards before the Black Ops - you won't be lost - but there are characters from the Bodyguard series that make appearances in the Black Ops, and vice versa. Especially in Show No Mercy, there are references to things that happened in the Bodyguards series, but she gives you enough back story to follow along. I read both series in order, and I'm glad I did.
I had read the Black Ops series a few months back, then collected and read the Bodyguards series, which I've recently read, waiting until I had them all before picking up the first one (I get crazy reading a book in a series when I can no longer remember details of the books before it).
Now I'm thinking of rereading the Black Ops series because there were so many things in Into the Dark (Bodyguards 6) that I vaguely remember seeing in Show No Mercy (Black Ops 1). So many books. So little time. I've decided to wait on that reread until I get my little book-holdng mitts on Feel the Heat (Black Ops 4).
For other who are contemplating these excellent series:
The Bodyguards (E.D.E.N. Inc.)
Black Ops Inc. (BOIs)
If you like Cherry Adair's T-FLAC series or Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters series, you'll enjoy this series every bit as much.
