Review: Shadow Falling by Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca Zanetti's newest in the Scorpius Syndrome is out! 

What it's about:
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 . . .

My Thoughts:
Rebecca Zanetti does it again with another thriller ride in Shadow Falling. It picks right up where the first book ended. Could be read as a stand alone but the first book laid down a lot of the background for this book. There was a lot less time spent on explanation in this book, which facilitated a faster paced story.  As always, this author delivered a hot romance balanced with action and a large cast of secondary characters.
The relationship in this novel between Vinnie and Raze, unfortunately, felt eerily similar to that in the first book in the series. Certainly it’s an interesting dystopian world which leads characters to have a do-it-now-because-we-might-die-tomorrow mindset in a time after humans were decimated by a deadly bacteria. There are a lot of side stories that can be seen are set ups for future books/novellas.

Did I like it? Yeah. Will I be picking up the next one: Yep.
