A confrontation is brewing...frustrated and heartbroken, Zoey turns to Declan, the one man charged with hunting her down – and the only person she knows who can help her.
Determined to do what’s right regardless of the cost, Zoey strikes out on her own as leader of Team Rogue, a vigilante group of beautifully lethal women dedicated to protecting the innocent. Her challenges soon become overwhelming as she is wanted dead or alive by two opposing supernatural societies. Making matters worse, she is plagued by blackouts that may compromise her missions. Politically adept, Declan knows how to walk the fine line between helping the woman he loves and remaining loyal to his family. What the powerful Enforcer Chief doesn’t know is how to keep Zoey safe from their common enemy. Time is running out for Zoey and her team. If her enemies don’t find her, her inability to control her actions will land her in hot water, if not dead. Aware of the dangers, she proposes a tempting deal to Declan -- spend every night in his bed, as he asked her long ago -- if, he and his powerful family align with Team Rogue in the coming confrontation between their societies.
This book picked up about two months after where the first book left off. Declan’s “betrayal” left Zoey completely heart broken, however what she didn’t know was Declan was tricked by the evil Succubus IAB chief, Olivia.
It will take quite a while for Declan and Zoey finally being on the same page, I am not sure I entirely agree with Declan’s reason to not to go after Zoey. I think it would’ve saved a bunch trouble and time, if he would’ve just told her what happened. Meanwhile, time is running out for Zoey, her blackouts are happening more frequently, and she might not have long before she completely lose her mind. So we are finally reaching the end of this war, and things are about to get messy and bloody.
In this book we are finally learning the evil scheme of Olivia, not only she was a mad experimentalist, but she was just evil through and through. I was not sorry to see the end of her. However the process of getting to that part can be a bit painful to read, it just seems to me the story was going around in a circle. I thought the political parts were somewhat tired to read, you see even though the Incubus is well aware of Olivia’s evilness, not only no one did anything but they continue to allow her to disturb the peace across all three societies. If it were not for Zoey and her Rogue Team of half-succubus, who knows how much longer will the Incubus wait to take the matter into their hands.
Overall I thought Zoey Avenger was slightly better than the first book, wasn’t as messy and still packed with actions. It has emphasize a little more on Declan and Zoey’s relationship, but didn’t end with a cliffhanger. I wonder if this is the last book of Declan and Zoey?
Happy Reading! XO
