Logan is Tienan’s fellow alpha that we heard about but never met in Embracing Silence. Even though they think of each other as brothers, Alpha’s are engineered in a way that two can’t be together for long periods of time or they end up fighting.
Mercy is a healer from a compound on the northern edge of the Outer City, a place where security forces rarely venture. When an increase in the security force’s activity results in one of Logan’s safe houses getting compromised, he decided now would be a good time to go exploring to the North. Unfortunately, he ended up getting severely wounded and brought to Mercy by a couple of children who had found him.
Just like with Tienan, when Logan met Mercy the connection was immediate, undeniable by either of them, and fraught with problems. Logan has a mission to take down General Caruthers and to bring down the wall and Alpha’s always finish their mission. To add to it, Mercy isn’t alone since she has taken in several orphans to raise plus she is the healer for the entire area. With the security forces intent on finding Logan, if he stayed he would bring danger to her front door, if he hasn’t already.
The chemistry between Logan and Mercy was palpable, like you could reach out and touch it. Even when duty got in the way of acting on their desires, just the anticipation of the night to come was full of heat and longing. When they actually do get together… Wow! It was everything it promised to be.
Both Mercy and Logan are given a glimpse of what they consider an impossible dream come true: a home, a partner, even a normal everyday dinner shared with the children, but they know it’s fleeting and not going to last. The emotions and feelings were real but so was the fact that he could not stay.
I have to say, with the angst of the impending end to Mercy and Logan blanketing things, the children were a needed happy distraction when things got too deep. I loved getting to know them, especially Evan who was extremely mature and fiercely loyal to Mercy. At seventeen he was trying to be the man of the house, doing everything he could to keep the children alive and thriving.
With the action, suspense, and the unbelievable heat factor I enjoyed Assassin’s Awakening every bit as much as the first book in the series. I do wish it was longer so we could get more backstory on this world and why things are the way they are, but that is my only real complaint. The third book is in my TBR pile and I am hoping I can get to it sooner rather than later.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I fell in love with the first book of this series, Embracing Silence and was so excited to get to this second book. Although you could read these as stand alones, there are details that make a lot more sense if you read them in order.
It is the year 2133 on Earth. Logan, otherwise known as Alpha 2, lives outside the Gate where only the rich and privileged live within the protective enclosed city. Logan is an enhanced human, made by the Piedmont Corporation for the sole purpose of being used as a weapon to kill. But they didn’t plan for the alphas to learn to override the microchip computer they had implanted in their brains and become able to think for themselves and make their own decisions. They didn’t plan for them to develop emotions. The project was terminated and all of the alpha’s were killed, except for the two that escaped, one of which was Logan.
Survival is a day to day basis. On this day, the security police have spotted Logan and he is injured. He wakes up tethered to a bed, bandaged and gazing up into the most beautiful eyes he has ever seen. He has no idea where he is but for that moment, he doesn’t care.
“Something about her called to him on a deep level. It was as though she’d been imprinted on every cell in his body. Created specifically for him.”
Mercy Dockins lives in a small community they call Hope. She is a healer and grows herbs to make her own healing concoctions. She takes in orphaned children and tries to give them the safest living environment she can. When two of the older boys bring home an injured man, she patches him up. It’s when he wakes up and stares up at her that her world shifts.
I want to stop right here and tell you that one of the hottest scenes I have ever read happen right here. And there was no touching involved. Just for your information. Whew!
Mercy and Logan have an instant chemistry that won’t be denied. But she knows there is something different about him. How can he heal so fast? How is he so strong? When the truth comes out, she knows he must leave to protect the children. He could bring the security police right to their doorstep. But even knowing this, letting him go will be difficult.
I am loving this series. These books are scorching. But it’s more than that. These alphas have had such a horrible life until their escapes. Just feeling the sun on their bodies was such luxury. For Logan to finally experience love was so beautiful. And Mercy was a selfless, giving woman who never thought she’d find love in the way the world is now. To finally find it and then have to send him away was heartbreaking. I am so excited for the next book in the series, Alpha’s Revenge.
I have to keep reminding myself this is erotica with a side of dystopia. I really wish it were the reverse because I was really getting into the plot line. Unfortunately, just as the plot was getting interesting, it is interrupted by sex. Well, it wasn’t BAD sex, it was more of bad timing. And speaking of timing, Whoa Nelly! Think maybe, possibly you might want to learn at least his name before going for the Big O? And I promise I won’t hash out how fast the L-Word is brought up. I’m hoping the next book has more plot. However, Assassin's Awakening still made for good reading.
I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine.
