Publisher's Summary

Their first mistake? Kidnapping her lover. Their second? Thinking she wouldn't do something about it.

The black-ops government agency known as Sigma has shattered the resistance, destroyed its infrastructure, and taken its best operative captive. It's about as bad as it can get, but Sigma's forgotten one thing: Rowan Price.

Rowan is no longer a civilian in the shadow war. Her talents are fully trained, and she's become something she never dreamed of - a cool, clinical, lethal psionic operative. Working as Henderson's second-in-command, she's utterly focused on two things: repairing the Society's infrastructure and rescuing Justin Delgado. Yet under her shell of calm and gentleness, her rage is simmering...and it's about to break loose.

Delgado knows he can't remember something important. He puts up with Sigma's beatings and questioning, the pain and the torture. Sigma keeps asking him the same question - where is Rowan Price? He doesn't know who this woman is or where she is, but if he can escape Sigma one more time, he's damn sure going to find out. Because Price, whoever she is, holds the key to his fractured memories and destroyed soul.

But first, he has to get out. Then he'll find Rowan Price.

Unfortunately, that may be the one thing Sigma's counting on.

A Great Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher and found it very entertaining. This is the second book in this series and was as good as the first one. It is just as suspenseful and fast moving as the first book. Rowen is fully trained and looking for revenge, along the way to finds Delgado again. It is a great listen. I'm hoping this isn't the last book in the series.

Great follow up to The Society

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A good follow up to The Society, the first book in the series. I would recommend starting with book 1, if you haven't already. Rayna Cole did a fabulous job on the narration. Definitely worth giving a listen.

A Satisfying Conclusion

I got completely hooked in the first book and this book was the icing on the cake. Although the characters sometimes did things that pissed me off and I wanted to slap them, I understood later that they were being manipulated and it was only partly them being insecure, and the other part was manipulation by the enemy, which is just darned good writing (when you get pissed off at the characters!).

Even if you didn't read the first book, you will enjoy this one as a stand alone book because you can catch up quickly as to what's happening. It's not a different world or anything -- it's just a world in which some people are super psychic, and some people want to grab those special people and use them for evil, Pretty cool premise.

Rayna Cole has one of the silkiest voices I've ever heard, and she was a jot to listen to.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Exciting second of the series.

I really enjoyed getting to know more about the characters and this story is both sad and happy with the hope of a possible future. I look forward to the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed this audio book after receiving an advanced copy.

More of a Romantic Fantasy

I did enjoy this story because of all the people with extraordinary powers they use to fight against the government to prevent the use of the drug Zed and the paranormal aspects. I enjoyed the characters of Rowan, Delgado, Zeke, Yoshi, and Kathrine .There is a lot action and romance in this fantasy. Recommend to anyone who enjoys romance. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Love is strong and one will do great things for it

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It's been three months since Delgado was taken. Rowan and the Society have been on the move, staying a hairs breath reach away from Sigma's fingers. Delgado did something to his mind, and he can't remember. He does know that Sigma has been drugging and beating him, asking where some girl named Rowan Price is. They want this girl. Bad. He doesn't know who she is, but if she's staying ahead of Sigma then he potentially trained her, and maybe she could help him.

Rayna is back for book two! Yes! I thought her voice fit Rowan perfectly in the first book as it fits the descriptions given of Rowan's voice. Rayna carries Rowan's emotions so well in her voice. Along with Delgado when we are in his head. There are moments that are italicized in the book to represent thoughts, which can be hard to relate vocally so the listener doesn't think the character is talking. Doing it with a slightly lower volume or whisper helps us differentiate these moments. I'm amazed at the talent Rayna has in jumping from Rowan's emotions to Delgado's emotions. They are both on a different feel, and it's portrayed in the quick scenes with grace from Rowan.

I was waiting for this audio book. I wanted to know how things would go after the ending of the first book.

Where Delgado kept his ability hidden and reserved in book one, we see him in action here. He's a killing machine when Sigma needs him to be. Or when he wants to be. We also get to see Rowan starting to understand her powers. She does more with them now, knowingly.

Rowan has grown stronger. In her ability and in character. She was weaker in the first book and still looks for her rock and love, Delgado, but she can function on her own. As a matter of fact, she can help run the team. She doesn't realize she's stepped into the position Delgado held, and she's doing an amazing job at it. Rowan is a complicated character. At times she seems like she should be weak and dependent, but she's not. There is so much more to her that makes her stronger and caring.

Delgado trained her to fight, in case this happened. In case he was taken and turned against her. He pushed Rowan past her limits when they were last together in the training room, but he knew he had to in order to keep her safe. Delgado's worst fears came true, and now Rowan is strong enough to survive against him. But she's more than that. She means the world to Delgado and he will find his way back to her.

What Delgado had to do to himself to protect Rowan from being found has lingering flickers for Delgado. Things are a tad rocky with him and Rowan as they find each other again. We see Rowan and Delgado as they are attracted to each other, but they are afraid of how things have changed. The story is more romance of how they find their way back to each other than what happens in bed, although that is present as well. This is more of the growing love they have.

The book feels to have a balance of romance and action. There is more story with Rowan and Sigma and Delgado and Sigma, as we get POV's from Rowan and Delgado. The story comes to an end, but there is an opening to possibly continue with these characters. I'd be up for it if it happens, but I'm happy with the way this ended as well.
