Vivienne (Vinnie) Wellington was a profiler for the FBI
until the Scorpius Syndrome destroyed everything she ever
knew. She certainly wasn't immune to the bacteria nor the
drugs that were pumped into her for reasons she is not
of while being held captive. She doesn't know that she is
about to be the reason for a very strong SHADOW FALLING.
Raze Shadow would probably have been considered one of the
bad guys in her old life, but in this life he is her hero.
Vinnie knows she shouldn't trust him but to be honest she
isn't sure how to trust anymore so it doesn't matter.
But Raze has a plan and Vinnie is part of it, but after
being with her and a part of the Vanguard, one of Jax
Mercury's lieutenants, and getting to know the people
around him he is torn. Can he betray the people who have
come to mean so much to him and do what he feels he must
SHADOW FALLING is a riveting, fantastic post apocalyptic
read with a sweet romance thrown in. After reading MERCURY
STRIKING I couldn't wait for the next book of the Scorpius
Syndrome series by author Rebecca Zanetti. I was
about both Raze and Vinnie from the end of the last book
and wanted to get more of their story. Though to be
who am I kidding, I just wanted more of this alarming
world. That said I am really glad Ms. Zanetti made this
couple the center of this book. Vinnie at first is
and disoriented due to the drugs that the president had
her trying to get her to tell him a secret, but after
awhile she calmed and began to work with the people of
Vanguard in hopes of fitting in and being productive in
this chaotic world.
Raze does have an agenda but you will
have to read the book to find out who, what and how but
will see that he is changed by this world and by the
feelings he has developed for Vinnie and the people around
him. Even though Raze and Vinnie are the main characters,
we still get to know more about Jax and Lynne, the other
survivors and a good look at the array of problems that
arise in this challenging world.
If you are looking for a
post apocalyptic read with amazing people, bad guys,
frightening bad guys, good guys, not so good guys,
survivors who know how to love and support each other and
some that just want to be left alone, then SHADOW FALLING
is a must read.

Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and
nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Kennedy was the FBIâ€™s

She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of
captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely
brilliant to full-on uncanny. Her mysterious rescuer wants her
to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with
his angelâ€™s eyes and devilâ€™s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldnâ€™t
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one
of the bad guys. His military training canâ€™t wipe out his
association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a
thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He wonâ€™t even
tell Vinnie his real name. But thereâ€™s no FBI in the new
of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his
arms wrap around her tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is
concealing, he canâ€™t hide his desire . . .
