Title: Justice Ascending
Author: Rebecca Zanetti
Stars: 3 1\2 out of 5
The reason I am not giving this book a full 4 is because honestly I felt the author relied on the sexual side of her story too much and didn't give us more meat. Justice Ascending isn't a stand alone like the book 2 it instead dives right in from where the last book ended. Rebecca Zanetti created an amazing post apocalyptic where men and women know it is only a matter of time because they contact the Scorpius and either turn into a crazy killer/zombie/rippers . I enjoyed how enemies redraw lines constantly in hopes they can one day work together. The romance is darker because of the Scorpius and everyone seems to lust after each other. I don't see or even understand how the Scorpius is suppose to work and I guess that is true with all virus they work different in all persons but the book feels like the author doesn't os hasn't potted what the the virus is either. Readers will be happy to get to know more about Sami and her background but Tace seems to be someone completely different from time to time. I understand that is the virus but for reader it didn't make any since and was distracting from the story. The subplots are never finished, the ending is just thrown at the readers and the HEA is just that. It fells like the second move in a trilogy something to keep thing moving slowly so that the next story can really shine. Way to many unanswered questions and to many dangling story lines for me to really enjoy this story. Rebecca Zanetti can write a sex scene no doubt about it and her actions scenes flowed well and kept me reading but everything else seemed to fall apart. Thank you Netgalley for the advance Copy. I will plan on reading the next in the series but if subplots are not closed it might be my last.

Before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Tace Justice was a good ole Texas cowboy who served his country and loved his mama. After Scorpius, the world became dark, dangerous, and deadly... and so did he. The Vanguard medic is stronger, faster, and smarter than before, but he's lost the line between right and wrong. His passion is absolute, and when he focuses it on one woman, there's no turning back for either of them. Sami Steel has been fighting to survive right alongside Tace, convincing the Vanguard soldiers she's one of them. In truth, Sami is a former hacker turned government agent who worked at The Bunker, where scientists stored both contaminants and cures. Only she knows the location, and she's not telling. Yet when sexual fire explodes between her and Tace, she'll face even that hell again to save him.
