It’s all fun and games until someone breaks out the needles.
It was supposed to be a simple retrieval mission. Go in, grab the bespelled package of evidence against some very corrupt superpowers, and get out. The mission turns sideways when a vengeful spy Bix blackballed during her time in Dark Ops crashes the job and injects Bix’s teammates with an unknown toxin. Succumbing to a horrific mutation, the dying spook whispers the Mayday protocol for a compromised covert operation involving a biological weapon.
With her friends infected and sequestered in quarantine, a mole inside the spy guild exposing its undercover agents, and the brightest minds in the Mid Worlds unable to identify the biologic, Bix picks up the mission to find the creators and the cure. She’ll square off against Fates, dragons, angels, and even the god of plagues to save her friends; yet the greatest threat might well be the darkness growing within Bix and the evil on which it feeds.
Beware the plagued spy, for wrath and ruin are sure to follow…
I loved the first book in this series and was stalking Amazon for the release of book 2 when I was offered an ARC. You bet I jumped on that chance.
And this is yet another great read!
Bix is in for a lot of trouble. Two of her friends get injected with a very nasty toxin, and she is on a race against the clock to find out what is going on and to find a cure. If that's not enough, she has to deal with her rediscovered powers, her past, and Gods who might be just a bit too interested in her.
I was totally invested and was just as eager as Bix to find out what was going on and what secrets lurk in her past. I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. There is lots of action, intrigue, and conspiracies. As Bix uncovers some secrets, more pop up and hint at things that happened and things to come.
Bix is a great heroine. She is powerful, but her amnesia makes her vulnerable. She has people she trusts and who she relies on, but at times it's unclear if her trust is justified. There are a lot of other characters in this book, still it's easy to keep track of them. I had a couple of favorites and hope to see more of them in future books.
All in all this book was everything I hoped for and you bet I'll get my trotters on a print copy of this book, and the next once it releases.
The gatekeeper is back! This is the second book in the series and you truly must read book one to know what is going on. Because there is a LOT. But if you love mythology mixed in with your UF, you should check this series out.
WOW wow, this book has so many different plots reveals and twists that I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one to come out. Bix is starting to understand how to use her powers and now we have Devourers in the mix and they are a nasty piece of work. You will love how involved the writing is and the characters. We are learning so much more about who Bix was and who she can become now. I hate to tell you anything about the story as I want you to read it. If you haven't read The Burned Spy yet, please pick it up and enjoy that read to give you all the background and understanding of who is in charge and all the different factions in this story. You want a great paranormal fantasy series to pick up binge read....this is the one for you!!!! I love this series!!!
Death isn't scary, it's the dying. Plans go south when Cian is infected with a biohazard agent as the dark elf that administered it gives a mayday protocol before he succumbs to the virus. The horrifying results of the virus lead Bix to a deep conspiracy within the consortium. With time running out to find the cure, Bix gets a mind bending gift and revelations from the people who knew her before her memories were wiped. This is a fabulous series. Start with The Burned Spy. Finely woven worldbuilding, mystery, action, exceptional side characters, political intrigue, magic. World obliterating Gates from Bix, the gatekeeper. I can't say enough of this series.
