I was given this ARC to read and review for an honest opinion by Netgalley and the author, Joan Swan. Let's get that out of the way first! Now, I have read all the Phoenix Rising books, and Shatter is the latest in this series. I will admit that each time I start another one of these books, it takes me awhile to "get back" into the framework of the series. The premise of Phoenix Rising is that there was a evil senator who along with others tried to engineer genetically perfect soldiers to kill at will. There was an explosion in a chemical warehouse and the effects of that were "super powers". Each story is about one of the men who has that "super power". Shatter, though, is about Mitch Foster who is the lawyer trying to take down the senator who is involved in this. His twin sister is in love with one of the super powers but as it turns out, his original love is one of the scientist forced to work for the group. It is all very involved and that is why it takes me a while to get back into these stories. HOWEVER, when I do get back into the flow, Ms. Swan does an excellent job with character development and I am totally involved in the H/H. I enjoy reading about past characters from previous books and how she ties them all together. Good, good read but my suggestion is to read the books in order to understand everything that goes on with all the characters. Each story is a stand alone and there is not any cliffhangers, I just believe they are more understandable read in order.
Halina Beloi’s life has been about protecting those she loved, including Mitch Foster, the man she never stopped loving and is still doing all she can to protect by staying as far away from him as possible. When Mitch finds her, everything begins to unravel and she’s back in the crosshairs of whomever Schaeffer sends after her. She holds the proof needed to take Schaeffer down and expose the work that DARPA had been doing for over seven years.
SHATTER by Joan Swan is everything I expected it to be and more. It is filled with intrigue, action, romance, second chances, and danger. Mitch has always been one of my favorite characters and he didn’t disappoint as the sarcastic, somewhat arrogant, smartass guy that I first fell for after meeting him in FEVER. Halina is a cross between the sweetest of angels and River Tam from FIREFLY. She’s soft, sweet, emotional, and very much in love with Mitch yet as dangerous as any human weapon can be. She’s tough yet compassionate and caring. She’s all I would want and need to complete Mitch’s life, and Joan gives her to Mitch and us, in SHATTER.
As always, we are treated to the various team members of the Phoenix team and never tire of their bickering, their supportive natures, and their skills. Quaid and Cash, who joined the team in the last book, RUSH, play large roles in SHATTER and couldn’t be more welcome and Kai, who I hope gets his HEA someday, is still the delightful smartass that we all adore.
I highly recommend SHATTER, book four in the Phoenix Rising series by Joan Swan. If you love action, intrigue, and a wonderful second chance romance combined with suspense, danger, and angst-filled moments that will keep you turning the pages, SHATTER by Joan Swan is for you.
***purchased this one but sharing my honest and unscripted review with you.
