Review: Storm Gathering
Storm Gathering (Scorpius Syndrome #4)
by Rebecca Zanetti
Published: September 19, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense, PNR
Even before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Greyson Storm was a lone wolf navigating minefields. As a kid, he learned to take a hit and find safety. As an adult, he joined the military and quickly learned how to protect and defend. When the world ended, he created a mercenary camp with military precision, no entanglements, and a promise to avenge a fallen friend. As part of that vow, he kidnapped Maureen Shadow, but now that he has let her go, her blue eyes and intriguing mind keep haunting him…
As possibly the only Biotechnology Engineer still living, Maureen Shadow might be humanity’s one hope to survive the aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension explodes with Greyson, she’s not sure which camp he belongs to—friend or foe? Worse yet, survival may mean thwarting his prime mission, putting her in even more peril. When danger and seduction collide, there is no safety in this new world.
This is the continuation of the Scorpius Syndrome series. It takes place with some overlapping time period and then right at the end of the previous book. You will want to read the series in order. The first few books blew me away with both the premise and the strong characters. But this one? Greyson Storm is one uber alpha male. Who best to pair him with than a feisty heroine with a mean roundhouse kick? Moe was the perfect foil to derail the leader of the Mercs.
My only negative take away from the story is that I want the conclusion! Like right now?? Is there enough food? Can we have babies? Will their be a cure for the syndrome? I guess that's what keeps us all coming back. Ms. Zanetti has found a way to weave romance into a dystopian world where fear and survival are more prevalent than the possibility of love.
Give this series a shot. I was pulled into it dragging and creaming but so glad I took the leap!
As always, great to see the relationships from former books pop up again. Loved Raze and Maureen together. And of course Raze and Grey coming to terms with each other. Good bit of action and tension in this one as well.
Can't wait for more!
