He was built to be invincible.

Merq and Armise return to the States after their mission to assassinate the remaining Committee members only to find the leadership of the Revolution isn’t as stable as they had thought.

Outside forces come crashing down on a Revolution stronghold, leaving two of their soldiers gravely wounded. Merq’s history with his brothers in arms Simion and Neveed forces him into making decisions that will impact his future with the Revolution.

Merq has always identified as a soldier first. Always known who deserved his loyalty and who didn’t. But with the uncertainty surrounding the leadership of the Revolution, the mysterious disappearance of the jacquerie and increased activity with the PsychHAgs, Merq knows there are few people he can trust.

The only man Merq wants or needs at his side is Armise Darcan. But his reliance on his former enemy may be a miscalculation that will threaten everything Merq stands for.

This book was another really good addition to this series!

We get more of this amazing world and characters this author has created in this book. But I have to be honest a say there were a few parts in this book that did drag a little bit for me and I can not say I was a huge fan of what Armise does in this book either.

You do get a lot of action with this book and more of these two men together but not as much as the previous books in this series. There was so much that Merq has to go through in this book and then finding out what Armise did I really felt so bad for his character.

But overlooking those few parts I have to say I did love the gritty aspect to this world and these characters. I actually ended up staying up all night reading the first three books in this series because I could not put them down and once I finished one I had to know what happened next lol.

So I will leave this review with… I really liked this book and would definitely recommend this series!

Sam sleeps little, reads a lot. Happiest in a foreign country. Twitchy when not mentally in motion.
