Fallen Siren, Book 2.5
Synopsis: Join Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She protected him. He loved her.
They can trust one another with their lives, but what about their hearts?
Special Agent Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren seeking redemption. Thousands of years ago, she was banished from Mount Olympus by Zeus and cursed by Demeter for failing to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone by Hades. Now she’s working for the FBI, seeking salvation while searching for and finding the missing. Her partner, Zack Armstrong, is a werewolf with a grievance of his own.
The former Black Ops sniper who once carried out a string of questionable assignments is atoning for his past. Ironically, Zack’s just discovered an important piece of his past has been magically wiped from his memory—an affair with Emma. It doesn’t matter she used the spell to save his life, that’s something he’ll never know. With trust eroded and love overshadowed by betrayal the only thing holding them together is the job.
When the son of multi-billionaire Roger Maitlan is kidnapped and his babysitter murdered in cold blood, Emma and Zack travel to New York to work the case. They go undercover, infiltrating a playground of private dungeons where those who are rich and powerful can live out fantasies without consequence. What they find is a conspiracy born of a twisted mind and fueled by greed. The clock is ticking. Will Zack and Emma be able to find the missing boy and their way back to one another?
Review: When I saw the summary of this novella, I was very surprised by its important length wondering if it wasn’t saying too much. But ultimately, it shows the events of the first two novels and only a small part of the story is presented here (which is just perfect I must say).
I really enjoyed the first two volumes of the series starring this fallen siren and a werewolf whose history is cursed long before anything starts. But it is true that the situation at the end of the second volume between the two was not really simple and I was curious to see how they would resolve the events together. So yes … it is true that the situation is very tense between the two and this is how they will find themselves together on a new case.
Indeed, the son of a Zack’s friend, a very rich man, was kidnapped in another state and both are called to help the police. Before putting aside their differences, the two will have to work together to save this little boy. Yet the story could end up being more complicated than expected and Emma will have to infiltrate the dungeons used by the wealthy men to understand what exactly is happening.
It was a very good little novella highlighting the relationship problems between the two heroes but also a complex and very interesting investigation. I look forward to reading volume 3!
