The Scorpius Syndrome#3
January 31, 2017
Before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Tace Justice was a good ole Texas cowboy who served his country and loved his mama. After Scorpius, the world became dark, dangerous, and deadly... and so did he. The Vanguard medic is stronger, faster, and smarter than before, but he's lost the line between right and wrong. His passion is absolute, and when he focuses it on one woman, there's no turning back for either of them.
Sami Steel has been fighting to survive right alongside Tace, convincing the Vanguard soldiers she's one of them. In truth, Sami is a former hacker turned government agent who worked at The Bunker, where scientists stored both contaminants and cures. Only she knows the location, and she's not telling. Yet when sexual fire explodes between her and Tace, she'll face even that hell again to save him.
The Scorpius Syndrome series never disappoints. The world as we know it is gone, as is most of the population and life is harsh. Groups of people are struggling to survive. Some never got sick and are organizing to scavenge from the old for survival. Few people have survived the bacterium, but those that do are changed. The disease has turned many feral, willing to take from those that are picking up the pieces.
Tace survived the disease and he notices that he has changed. Before, he was an affable "aw shucks, ma'am" kind of guy. Since he survived, he is different. He has an edge to him and he is stronger. He fears that he might turn bad the way many have, but he is a good man who is stronger than he realizes.
Fighting along side the Vanguards is Sami. She and Tace are attracted to each other as they search for all the things the group needs to survive and that includes weapons and ingredients for a cure which of course is in short supply. Their chemistry is getting to hard to deny, but Sami has a secret.
Although the premise of the story is bleak, the characters shine throughout each book. The men are warriors and they will do what must be done to protect their group. The women are smart, strong and kick-ass! They are the people you would want watching your back as the world fights to get back on its feet. Tace and Sami have a hot and sexy chemistry which has you rooting for them. Ms. Zanetti's storytelling is fast paced and exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
