(The Scorpius Syndrome #2)
by Rebecca Zanetti
Publication Date: August 30th 2016 by Zebra
Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely brilliant to full-on uncanny. Her mysterious rescuer wants her to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk.
And the way his arms wrap around Vinnie tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .
I admit I wasn’t totally convinced after reading Mercury Striking, book one in this series, but I loved the world building enough to request Shadow Falling. And I liked it a lot better than book one. The world building was still great and I can’t wait to see how the fight with the bacterium will go on in the next books.
But the real reason why I liked Shadow Falling was this one:
First, Raze was much more likeable than Jax. Second, Vivienne was much more likeable than Lynne. Those two as a couple made a lot more sense than Jax and Lynne. I really, really liked Raze and Vivienne together.
Also I can’t wait to see what will happen with Sami and Tace, also I think Maureen and Greyson would make a good couple. I can’t wait to see what more Rebecca Zanetti has up her sleeve.
