Now the mysterious feared demon, Vadik, has discovered their location in Peru and has taken Ryker and sold Zoey back to DMG. The very place which gave her life now might take it away. Or someone she loves… Dr. Rapava is so obsessed with building an army against the fae he will do anything to control Zoey and her new found powers.

Zoey Daniels has been tossed from foster home to foster home, where she grows up fast and tough. When she is placed in her “last-chance” home, she finds a reason to stay and turn her life around: her foster sister, Lexie, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Zoey will do anything to keep her safe.

After high school, Zoey is hired by a special government agency, the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), where she meets the other reason to remain: Daniel, her co-worker. The man she loves.

But there is something unique about Zoey. She can see fae. Because of this, the DMG hires her to work as a Collector: catching, researching, testing, and using the fae to save human lives. The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them.

When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey’s whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.

Amazon/iBooks/Nook/Kobo/Goodreads

synZoey’s life has taken a dramatic turn. Only a few months ago she was a Collector working for the a secret part of the government called the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), tracking and collecting fae.

Zoey discovered she was an experiment from the very company she worked for. She could die at any moment of a threatening defect—taking Ryker’s magic with her.

In a race against time, Ryker and Zoey set out to find a way to transfer his powers back before it’s too late. Their journey takes them to the rainforests of South America, dealing with those who are after something Ryker possesses and who will stop at nothing to obtain it for themselves.

What Zoey and Ryker discover can destroy them or tear them a part for good.

***I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review via Mark My Words PR.

When I read City in Embers, I was wowed. I LOVED that book but this one is even better. Sometimes the sequel falls flat, no worries, just as fresh and action-packed as the first book with an added layer of carnal lust. 

PROS:

  • An adrenaline rush from the first page to the last, The Barrier Between will consistently keep your heart racing. From the thrill of the Fight Club-esque arena to the fae infested wild of South America, every page is a new adventure. 
  • Sprig is hilarious. His antics are adorable. A spritely, spirited little fae monkey with an obsession with honey and all things sugar. His comments are spot on and sarcastic, bringing tons of light and laughter to a terrible situation. From his love of reality tv to his narcolepsy, every scene is filled with joy. Plus, his curses are the cutest. 
  • The beloved Viking. I didn’t think it was possible for him to get any hotter but I was WAY wrong. Ryker is sex and sin, lust and angst, desire and animalistic intentions all rolled in one very sexy package. Gruff, angry, and with a tendency towards violence, Ryker is a terrifying adversary, his whole image is menacing between his huge physique and BA ax, there’s nothing this man can’t slaughter. What’s more, when Ryder is vulnerable it’s deliciously sinful. His compassion, his battle scars, his dark past all make him a complex, deep, and devoted man. Some scenes he’s sweet and kind and others, holy hotness, get ready to fan yourself.
  • Zoey is changed. She’s not the hardened criminal she once was, there’s a softness to her that’s very appealing especially accompanied by her rage induced tenacity in battle. Fiesty, fierce, and a killer fighter with her fists, Zoey’s alter ego, the Avenging Angel has come a long way. Above everything, Zoey is a survivor. She’ll fight until the last making her incredibly brave but what is even more admirable is her decision to open her heart to love again. Dreamy sigh.
  • OMG the chemistry. The sexual tension and frustration is almost overwhelming it’s so strong. Every encounter is a heady mix of fury and attraction, they want to punch each other as often as they want to rip their clothes off. 
  • New characters were a pleasant surprise. Heading back to the fight ring to meet AB, tossing in a greater look at the illusive Amara, and introducing Cryogen-that man, think Jack Sparrow.

CONS:

  • Some dramatic scenes were almost too easily resolved. Just when things were starting to get dire, some twist of fate pulled them of the danger zone. I.E. the Avenging Angel fight.

***I received this eARC as a gift in exchange for an honest review and in participation with this blitz.

City of Embers is an unexpected thrill ride, packed with surprises that will throw and shock you into a serious adrenaline rush. Complete and utter captivation.

PROS:

  • Zoey is fierce. Her resilience is powerful and admirable. She’s daring and beautiful, she wields so much strength. She fights tooth and nail for her life and those she loves. Her past is full of bad decisions made to survive and horror story foster homes. It’s amazing how far she’s come and with such confidence in her ability. Emotions are volitile and  when Zoey crashes, it’s brutal and hard. Zoey learns to trust and open her heart when she least expects it. Sarcastic, short-fused and prone to flying fists, Zoey is a take charge, risk-taker that shields her emotions with her words and dirty street fighting. 
  • Zoey and Ryker have killer chemistry. The violent, explosive kind that leaps off the pages and pushes the story forward in a series of lust and unfulfilled desire. The angst is a drug that will leave you feeling tipsy and dissatisfied but thirsting for more. They’re aggressive, angry, they throw punches and insults but the heat is constant. Despite a lifetime of learned hatred for their opposing species, their mutual loss and hardheaded tendencies bring them together. 
  • Sprig is hilarious. The pervy little sprite is energetic, daring and completely adorable with his honey addiction and off-kilter TV references. It’s easy to fall in love with his spirit and playfulness even though he’s a constant source of disruption that effectively blocks the culmination of Ryker and Zoey’s feelings. The frustration is INTENSE.
  • The violence is extreme. The bloodshed is extensive and graphic, deaths come fast and action scenes escalate so quickly it’s hard to keep up. The story is fast-paced and moves even though here are lags the danger is ever-present.
  • The story does contain triggers. Zoey’s past is dark, full of heartache and abuse but it is not really detailed, more suggestive than blunt. There are a few scenes that feature assault. I appreciated that the author included just enough without flashbacks. 
  • Variety of fae and powers was quirky and inventive. Each character, no matter how small or fleeting has unique features and dominant traits. They’re all memorable and that’s quite a feat. 

CONS:

  • Relationships and love, whether it be sisterly or sexual were a huge part of what made Zoey tick and yet, the back story was abrupt and felt insignificant to grasp their connection. Yes, you could feel the love and longing but it wasn’t as poignant as it could have been. 
  • Zoey’s life as a collector and what they do as an organization was missing its history for most of the plot. When it was revealed it was a rapid-fire info session and the climax was like a slap in the face revelation.
