Book review – Onyx
>This book is the 1st in the Sinners Syndicate series and ends with all the story lines up in the air. Onyx, Dev and Harleigh grew up in a school that doubled as a scientific center to genetically engineer human children. The kids were abused and tortured. Harleigh has blacked out this time in her life. At the age of 25, the latent abilities genetically engineered in them start to become active. The scientists then send out hunters to capture the students once again. I was unclear as to why the students were let loose in the first place. If someone rescued them, why did the children not know what was done to them?
>The son of the head scientist, Viktor, has an obsession with Harleigh. References to a comic book universe are referenced a lot. Readers without any knowledge of said universe and all of its characters will be lost. Harleigh is protected and loved by Onyx. The love scenes are hot, but Harleigh is constantly left alone and taken by the hunters. One time Harleigh is taken for 3 days and then released without reason. Harleigh feels an attraction to Viktor due to her memories of him being manipulated, but why she would act on those feeling after being held hostage and having her life threatened is never explained.
>I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from Romance Authors that Rock. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I am giving this story 3 stars. The characters are interesting, but the plot makes no sense. The battle scenes with each character’s abilities are cool, but even the battles end with the hunters just disappearing, without any explanation.
