WOW! I don't remember if I have ever cried so hard for a literary heroine as I wept for Wavy's fate. This story hit hard and made an impact like I wasn't prepared for.
When I heard that Janie Crouch is coming out with a new series I was elated like a kid at Christmas. Even the change in POV into the first tense didn't put me off, and I admit, here it gave the story continuous intensity and flow that took a hold of my mind, making the tale unputdownable.
An impressive feat of excellent storytelling, a gripping tale of horror and fright, an ardent story of love that has time and space to deepen and grow, a team that is ready to sacrifice for their mission and for each other - Aries has it all, it blew me away with the depth of the emotions between Ian and Wavy, with the intense terror of human trafficking, with the potent fast tempo of the fight for their lives, for what is right, and the absolute trust that bonds the mates of Zodiac Tactical team.
Aries brings to the pages few characters from the past series by the author, and the tale has such a natural, smooth flow, emitting the kind of insights rarely seen at the first installment into a series.
I loved this story so hard, I'm intrigued by the Zodiac Tactical team members, looking forward to getting to know them and read about the troubles they face and soulmates they find. Yes, I am enamored, and I just might re-read Aries again just to figure out what are the horoscope signs of the rest of the crew.
