Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Kennedy was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely brilliant to full-on uncanny. Her mysterious rescuer wants her to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.

If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk.

And the way his arms wrap around Vinnie tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .

Shadow Falling (The Scorpius Syndrome, #2)Shadow Falling by Rebecca Zanetti

Shadow Falling is the second installment in The Scorpius Syndrome series.

After the devastation of the Scorpius virus has took its toll on world, the gangs, mercenaries and other groups battle for control of a block, a neighborhood and the country. Your life and wellbeing all lies within the group or alliances you make. If that wasn't bad enough psychotic, virus infected humans have taken over the ruling of North America. Even the president has his own plans for a future where he rules as a ruthless tyrant with lots of torture and blood shed.

Raze Shadow, ex-military to mercenary, has joined LA community. He is accepted as one who will protect this community from harm but he has a secret agenda that might rip it apart.

Vinnie is the best FBI out there. Rescued from the "tender mercies" of the President, Vinnie is happy to join the LA community. But she is a hot commodity and there is a lot of people out there that would love to get control of her ability…and Raze happens to be one of them. Vinnie might be the key to the missing bunker that can possibly solve the Scorpius issue.

There is lots of sexual tension between Raze and Vinnie. But with lives hanging in the balance, sometimes chemistry is not enough.

Strong solid plot with just as strong and solid characters, Zanetti does a magnificent job creating this post-apocalyptic world for us to devour.

Shadow Falling was an absolute nail biting, page turner read that I highly enjoyed.

I was left wanting more and looking forward to the next installment.

I received this ARC copy of Shadow Falling from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 30, 2016.
