As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynn is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…
Danger has never looked quite so delicious…
I am a huge Rebecca Zanetti fan. I have read her Sins Brothers series and those ones were so exciting and action packed. I'm still hoping there's a spin off to it. In the meanwhile, she has a new series called the Scorpious Syndrome. The first book in the series is called Mercury Striking and I requested it off of Netgalley and luckily go accepted for it. Mercury Striking is a novel set in dystopian times. There's lots of action and hot romance so overall it was a great combination which made for a unique read.
Jax Mercury is our hero. In these difficult time he has come through. He's ex army so he knows how to survive. Jax together with a group of people live together in Los Angeles and they are trying every day to make it. Jax was a difficult man to like. He was hard and stubborn but he cared about his people even if he didn't want the role as a leader.
Then we have Lynn. Lynn is actually a brilliant scientist who has a blue heart. Literally. She with her partner Nora actually accidentally created the virus which became uncontrollable and led to the destruction of the world. Lynn was a really sweet heroine. She goes to Jax for help because she has so much against her. I really liked Lynn.
I found it super interesting how the virus was affecting humans and could be cured by vitamin B which the human body was not producing by itself. With so much chaos the connection Lynn and Jax make felt even more intense. I loved their chemistry and how they always knew nothing real could happen between them in times like this. But they still made it.
I also really liked all the supporting characters we got to meet and I am especially excited for the next couple's book. I am actually a bit scared to get attached to anyone in this series cause Miss. Zanetti has a tendency to kill off anyone at any time. But with the conspiracies brewing there may be some hope. I enjoyed Mercury Striking.
