Book Review: Jigsaw Black Raven Book 2
Title: Jigsaw Black Raven #2
Author: Stella Barcelona
Stars: 3 1\2 out of 5
I really enjoyed the first book in this series Shadow but just like the first this book has so much dialogue to the point you know what everyone is thinking and there isn't much of a surprise. When they figure out who the bad guys are it is all so rushed and I found it disappointing. The author made it such a secret as to who the bad guys where that when they reviled I was really disappointed. Very anticlimax for all the build up.
This book has so much dialogue I would forget what the main story was about. In fact I forgot completely at one point why the female lead was in danger to began with.
Its not a bad story it just wasn't what I expected. Thank heaven the author didn't have the female lead do anything stupid and in fact followed her security advice 99% of the time.
For me this book doesn't stand out in the crowd of the over populated security\former military style books. For me personally it felt like she wrote scenes and than created a story around those scenes and forgot to check to make sure it flowed or made since.
Foraging the cyber-world for puzzle pieces…
Zeus Hernandez, a Black Raven partner, is pulled away from a top-secret project to be the personal bodyguard to lawyer Samantha Fairfax. Terrorists have rendered the future frightening and uncertain, but Zeus and Samantha’s past makes two things crystal clear: she’ll be furious to see him and he can’t refuse the job.
Sorting pieces as stakes rise…
Danger surrounds the International Terrorism Tribunal, a court convened to combat terrorism. Samantha is thrust into the limelight when her mentor dies as the trial convenes in Paris, France. Her role requires steadfast focus and nerves of steel. She’s determined to do her job and move her life ahead, according to plan…without Zeus. He’s determined she’ll reconsider.
Completing the puzzle as their worlds collide…
As personal drama escalates behind closed doors, terrorists take aim at an Achilles’ heel that is capable of crippling Zeus, Samantha, and Black Raven. While forcing puzzle pieces to click into place, a personal reckoning looms for these two strong-willed people. There’s no denying they might be better off apart…but they fit together so well.
