Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Kennedy 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.Shadow Falling was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!
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 . . .
The book begins some weeks after the ending of Mercury Striking! Vivienne -aka Vinnie- is struggling to adjust, her nightmares and hallucinations surely do not help her situation. Fortunately, there’s something -someone – who does! Raze Shadow may be Vinnie’s savior but the man is far from a hero, not when he has his own agenda and especially not when his agenda goes against everything Jax Mercury stands for!
There were so many things going on this book! It was insanely good! We have Raze, who has his own agenda. Vinnie, who is trying to remain sane while at the same time trying to fit in this new society. Jax, who is facing some serious inner territory issues while also facing bigger threats from the surrounding gangs and the President himself. Lynn, who is struggling to come up with a cure without a proper lab. The President who is preoccupied with reorganizing the army while looking for opportunities to capture Lynn and Vinnie and so on! The book definitely offers variety!
I adored Raze! He was everything I thought he would be and he definitely lived up to my expectations! I actually really like all of the major characters so far, including those introduced in this book! I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Justice Ascending, Tace and Sami’s book, especially considering Sami’s real identity! I’m also very excited to see what’s going on between Maureen and Greyson, they can deny it all they want but there’s definitely something going on with them and it’s definitely going to be scorching HOT!
