2 More Mini Comments

For ages, the goddess Nemesis has sought divine vengeance against mortal man, as she awaits her chance for retaliation against Mount Olympus. Now, after making a deal with a dark wizard, she has reinvented herself as a female spy with her own sinister agenda....
Immortal warrior Kane Montague is as lethal as a scorpion -- like the one that marks his powerful form. As an assassin for MI6, he was an ace gun-for-hire until someone very close burned him. Now on the outs with his former colleagues, Kane knows all too well who's to blame: a sexy secret agent named Ilsa.
When their paths cross again, the passion between Kane and Ilsa is irresistible... and possibly lethal. But they soon realize that Ilsa is simply a pawn in a conspiracy aimed at the heart of the Zodiac Warriors. Can Kane trust her? Or is Ilsa the only one who can save him, body and soul?

Comment: In this second installment in the zodiac series, the author has managed to deepen the mythology parts, which I think just add more flavour to the series. It's all good to know what the heroes are doing but to know more about gods and the meaning of things is muc more fun.
The main couple in this book seemed to have more chemestry and their pasts and lives were more intriguing for me to know about.
I think this is a great ideia, about the warriors with characteristics from their zodiac signs, but they're described as a united group and so far, we still haven't met the majority of them. I wish that would happen. I'd gladly give up on the too much romance parts so I ould have more warriors and to see their lives together. Let's see what happens next. So far, I'm still curious and will keep reading.

It is a boiling hot summer in Boston. Adding to the city's woes is a series of shocking crimes in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized--a sadistic demand that ends in death. The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently put behind bars. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that's what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced to reconfront the killer who scarred her--literally and figuratively--she is determined to finally end Hoyt's awful influence. But this time around, the vendetta is more vicious than she ever would have imagined.

Comment: I was so eager to read this book and I wasn't disappointed. The author created a gripping story, with most of the characters from the previous novel and we can see where their lives have gone to. I was very surprised to see the focus center on Jane and her live and I was told it will remain so. Grom now on, the personal parts of the books will be about her and another doctor. I hope I'll keep addicted to know more. The story was very well done, I couldn't stop reading and in evwry page something is revealed in a way that we keep sayng, one more page but then there's 10 more and we still say that. The end is a bit disturbing because it allows the reader to make assumptions about future things, which is very smart; we want to know more, so we'll have to read more. I'll read the next book the following month. This author remains a challenging, but good, one.
