Intense and fast-moving post-apocalyptic romantic suspense. Second in the series.
It's a soldiers world where the strong survive and are in charge. It's a thrilling ride with a lot of shooting, hostage taking and death threats. And pounding/banging/thrusting sex scenes.
"when things are at their worst, true character is revealed. Jax is a survivor and so is Raze. But they go beyond making sure they survive to actually saving and shielding other people. Character."
"The apocalypse has revealed heroes."
In this story, Vivienne is rescued by Raze Shadow and the two are soon emotional attached and sexually attracted.
I'm not sure I like the strong man attitude that prevails with this storyline (both books and heroes). Specifically the spanking as punishment. Really?
I do like the visual of keeping socks in an oven that doesn't work anymore and the appreciation of things we take for granted in today's world. Like lotion. A reminder to appreciate the good things in life.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
Raze Shadow has been a mystery with a hidden agenda from the moment he showed up in Vanguard territory. He has one job he needs to accomplish and he won’t let his growing allegiance to Jax and the home he’s built get in his way. That is, until he’s the one to pull Vinnie out of the hell she’d been trapped in. Now, his loyalties are split between his real mission and a possibly crazy PhD.
I was really impressed with Mercury Striking when it was released earlier this year, and Shadow Falling doesn’t disappoint in that Rebecca Zanetti does a really good job of fleshing out and continuing this world. It’s not just Raze and Vinnie’s book. Other characters get their own perspectives, plus there are some new and promising characters introduced as well. This just heightens everything for this post-apocalyptic world and makes it feel very well rounded. We see where the series came from and a clear path of where things are going next, which I really loved.
Unfortunately, it’s kind of a double-edged sword because what this also does is take away some of the growth in mainly Vinnie’s character and the budding feelings between her and Raze. I didn’t take to their romance like I did to Lynn and Jax’s.
I really liked Vinnie’s quirky crazy self. All the drugs the President pumped through her system, in hopes of heightening her ESP, are kind of combatant with the Scorpius virus she already has in her system. Since the full effects of Scorpius are unknown at this point (it seems like it affects everyone’s brain differently), it was interesting to see the changes that occur in Vinnie as she’s experiencing them too. We just didn’t get enough of this.
There were also some internal Vanguard issues that pop up seemingly out of nowhere in this book and are dealt with in almost the same fashion. I think if this storyline would have been developed over the course of this book and maybe the next, the impact would have been felt more.
Raze’s own story was done pretty well, and this may stem from the fact that he was featured more in the first book so we already had the idea that he has secrets that may not coincide with Vanguard objectives.
Considering how the series has gone so far, I’m hoping Vinnie will get some more page time/growth in the next book Justice Ascending. Overall this has been an entertaining series and I cannot stress how much I think reading prequel novella Scorpius Rising (featured in On the Hunt anthology) is important to entirely understanding this world.
First off, This fantastic Scorpius Syndrome series by Rebecca Zanetti is dark, edgy, sexy, and completely AWE-MAZING! The characters are intense and wonderfully intriguing and are both intelligent, fun, tough, caring, and are irresistible. They are the kind of characters I would be excited to know in real life, but they are intimidating enough (especially the men) to where I would be stuttering and shy around them. And the descriptions from Scorpius and the science behind a possible cure, to the way the men protect and go on missions is really something. Everything seems so realistic that once I put the book down, it took a few minutes to realize that that world is fiction. I really loved that feeling.
The romance...oh my god the romance and sex, are both sizzling! The post apocalypse brought out the barbarian in our hero and to be honest, it was brilliant and sexy, and just the right amount of dark. Its hard to resist a man that will do anything to protect the woman he falls for, even if it means tying her up to keep her safe. Raze is strong, commanding, all-consuming and full of sexiness! Vinnie is sweet, surprisingly strong after everything she endured, and determined to belong and help those that need it. I loved her bit of craziness and her loyalty and love of Raze. This book is just one stunner after another.
Shadow Falling gets a SIZZLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its a dark, tempting, action packed ride that will leave readers hearts pounding and their knees weak. A MUST MUST READ!!
