Book & Author Details:
Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti
Publication date: September 19th 2017
Genres: Dystopian; Romantic Suspense
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.
Technically, you can read this book as a standalone, but there appears to be lots of back story that has been dealt with in previous books. So, whilst you can do as I did and dive in here, you might want to read the previous books in the series.
And so to the story. Fast paced, full of action and some serious chemistry between the two main characters. And, albeit a frustrating relationship between Greyson and Maureen, their back and forth was entertaining to read and flowed very well (even given the speed of their connection).
This was definitely a book that kept my interest from start to finish, with a dystopian scenario that felt eerily possible.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
