Raven and his team were able to track Nika down due to the pheromones she'd been doused with. The sexual effect on him and his men was instantaneous, putting him on his guard with the feisty female. He didn't trust her, particularly with his hormones in overdrive. The only choice was to take her with them.
Captive or not, Nika considered Raven and his posse her safest option. What happens when her feelings start to become something more than curiosity?
Lyssa Hart is exceptional when it comes to writing futuristic genre stories. Night Raven is a strong read, and I don't have enough praise for the story's technological and social-political areas. Yet, the character development for Nika, Raven, and company seemed stunted. Aside from Nika's random thoughts and feelings, the plot relies mostly on external conflict. Characterization depended on the men's physical traits to distinguish them from one another with a sprinkling of internal conflict, limited obstacles, and random sex with Nika. Admittedly in some cases, I didn't always like the guys, which means I didn't see why Nika should. I simply couldn't reconcile myself to her attraction. She comes across as smart, self-reliant, strong, and capable. Subtract the hot sex, outsider issues, and a common enemy, and there doesn't seem to be a heck of a lot to the equation.
Overall, I was impressed by the setting and myriad of important details cemented to the plot such as the post apocalyptic conspiracy theory and the two-headed government-corporate beast that's taken over. It still wasn't enough for me to feel a connection to the all main players though. On a positive note, storyline concerns are met with believable resolutions. I struggled with the fact I wanted to feel more than resentment and displeasure for some of the actions and choices made. Still, despite all my expectations and complaints, I'm the first to admit this is a good story. The narrative is solid and well constructed with a positive HEA.
