The writing was fantastic. It was well paced. The plot was captivating. It was told in a dual POV format. It was full of twists and turns. Intrigue. Mystery. Action. Romance. Secrets. Heartbreak. Hot sex. It had a tiny bit of a sci-fi feel to it as well. <— I am generally not a fan of sci-fi stuff, but it didn’t overpower the story, so that angle didn’t bother me. There was no OW or OM drama. The hero didn’t appear to be a manwhore. The heroine was a virgin (I can’t seem to escape them lately). There was a good cast of secondary characters I am sure will get books of their own. Unfortunately, one of those characters will be MIST and I honestly could not stand her character so I am on the fence about whether or not I want to read her book.
This is also book two in the TEAM ZERO series. I haven’t read book one, however; I wasn’t lost or confused. That said, I am sure reading CROWED first would enhance the overall reading experience and provide the reader with more background details. Last, the ending was a smidge disappointing. It felt super rushed and very abrupt. I really would have liked to have seen an epilogue of some sort. At least a tiny glance into this couple’s future. Perhaps we will see more of them in future books. So not much left to say about this one. I enjoyed it. I recommend it. I am excited to read Shadow’s book, and I hope his heroine will be Zoe! Two thumbs up from yours truly.
