The Syndicate - Shelena Shorts
July 9, 2012

"For centuries, the Petrescu family has been protecting society from a danger that moves among the population undetected. Eighteen-year-old Vasi Petrescu has never had a problem carrying out his duty, but, when ordered to eliminate an eighteen-year-old girl, he is immediately taken out of his comfort zone.

The Syndicate has never targeted a female before, yet somehow this one has ended up on more than one hit list. Vasi would like to find out why, but there may not be time.

Now, he'll have to decide whether or not to keep her alive even if it means going against his own family.

The action, mystery, and conspiracy in The Syndicate will take readers on an immersing journey in which decisions are not only life changing, but irreversible."

Vasi Petrescu is a Guard in The Syndicate. Protectors of humans against Hybrids, he does what he needs for The Syndicate and man-kind. But suddenly his world is shaken up when he receives the name of a girl. Females have never been targeted before, and Vasi's instincts are telling him that Riley is not a threat.

This book was fabulous. You don't read a lot of books written in male point of view but I love it. I would also just like to point out... How good-looking is the model in the cover? Yes. I have been dying to share my thoughts on that issue. *DROOL*

I love Vasi. He is strong, rebellious and confident - a quality I find most attractive! He isn't afraid to go against orders when he believes they are wrong, and stands up for what he believes. Riley, despite constantly having meltdowns, I really liked too. I loved the fact that 90% of the time when Vasi went to Riley's house, she was in her PJ's! Different ones each time! She obviously doesn't need to impress anyone! Henri was the obvious baddie. An Elder that was voted in, but technically shouldn't be? Yeah, he is always going to have issues. Vasi's sister Rosie is also a fireball, I absolutely loved her spirit! There are a few other characters mentioned, but none of them overly exciting yet.

This story had me guessing the whole way through. I always thought I had it figured out, but then Shelena would just put a tiny twist in that would shake everything up! The ending was left nicely, open for the next book, open to guesses at what would happen next, but not in that horrible cliff-hanger way.

Pre-order The Syndicate now!
