Greyson Storm is tough, calculating, cold, obnoxious and --
romantic. Yep, all that rolled into one man that will put
his life on the line for the one person who means everything
to him. Maureen Shadow. Anyone who steps in his way better
beware of the STORM GATHERING and run!
Syndrome has changed the world but men of honor still
fight to survive and Greyson Storm is the perfect leader.
What few know is that Grey is bent on revenge for the death
of a close friend who died from the bacterium, but this lady
just might be more important. Maureen Shadow really might be
the only person in this destroyed world who can give hope to
the remaining survivors but the most important person to her
is Grey and their surprise.
At first, she was taken by Grey, leader of the Mercenaries,
to force her brother to bring him someone who can give him
answers to the whereabouts of the crazy doctor he needs to
find, but then he falls for the biotechnology engineer
hostage. Which is certainly the last thing he expects. Not
that he gives up on needing those answers, but his plans
change with a very important surprise that sends him back
into Maureen's arms.
I am a super fan of Rebecca Zanetti's writing and her Scorpius
Syndrome books are my favorite post-apocalyptic series.
In STORM GATHERING the Vanguards and the Mercenaries become
allies against the remaining Scorpius infested government.
Grey and Maureen are the centers of this story but the past
characters continue moving forward and all the past
characters are there to give their best shot at surviving.
The build-up of the relationship between Grey and Maureen
and its a cross between sweet, steamy and confused as both
questioned their feelings for one another. How can a
relationship survive in these unpredictable times? It was
great to get to know the mercenaries a little better,
including the gruff but adorable Atticus and Damon, Grey's
second, and to see what life is like for this gang of men
and to see Grey as leader. And it is also a lot of fun to
watch a tough guy turn to mush when his woman just looks at
him and that is what happens to him. He has a choice to
make, and he chooses her ... you have to love that.
If you are looking for a lot of action, a love story that
will grab you by the throat, survivors who have each others
back, hits of humor and a good bit of snappy dialogue then
STORM GATHERING will be the book you need in your hands.
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 himâ€¦
As possibly the only Biotechnology Engineer still living,
Maureen Shadow might be humanityâ€™s one hope to survive the
aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable
to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension
explodes between her and Greyson, sheâ€™s not sure which
camp he belongs toâ€”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.
