Overview

There’s no easy cure for a love of epidemic proportions.

Araneae Nation, Book 4

Zuri and her mercenary brothers had a simple mission. Transport a captured harbinger to Erania and collect the bounty. But this job turns out to be anything but easy.

Their welcome to the northland is nothing short of frigid. A scuffle with border guards and her prisoner’s attempted escape leave Zuri injured—and she and her brothers stuck in quarantine. Worse, the bounty comes with silken strings attached. Strings held by a scientist with a daring, dangerous plan.

Because Zuri and her prisoner barged in before his fail-safes were in place, Henri had no choice but to lock them all down until he’s sure there’s no risk of spreading plague. He’d planned to study the harbinger, but it’s the mercenary holding the leash who intrigues him the most.

When Henri’s experiment goes awry, they learn they’ve all been pawns in a plan with one goal: bring the Araneae Nation to its knees. Zuri is forced to make a choice that could sign her death warrant—or sacrifice everyone she loves.

Warning: This book contains a chair-bound heroine who won’t let anyone—least of all a man—push her around. Expect tea-drinking, net-tossing, and knife-wielding. Should you feel compelled to indulge in a bear ride, please keep your hands on the reins and your feet in the stirrups. Author not responsible for possible maulings.

    An interesting installment that delves again into the Araneae Na

    An interesting installment that delves again into the Araneae Nation world, so beautifully created and developed by Hailey Edwards.  In this story, we are treated to the story of Zuri and Henri, all from Zuri’s perspective. 
    Giving us only Zuri’s view of the events as they unfold, and tapping so deeply into her emotions keeps this read feeling very slow, almost crawling until the midpoint. A bit disconcerting for readers that want a faster pace, but this only serves to build tension for the reader, correlating to the tension of the warring worlds and the rush to an end. 
    When the action does pick up, there is information that serves as a refresher for readers, providing insight into possible reasons for events long past, and reasserting the background on the enemy. There are still to be answered questions, but the information needed to fix the events and postulate on yet to come trials are very present. 
    The relationship is slow to develop, but we do have insight into Zuri’s feelings and see some development and growth in Henri, so overall the romance becomes an underpinning to the larger plotting arc focused on the ongoing threats.  I would have liked a bit more perspective than was provided by a story from one character, but I can’t help but feel it was an effective ‘freshening’ of the series to date, and certainly keeps my interest piqued for the next book. 
    Even with the background layering and information, this is not a series to pick up in the middle, start from the beginning and plan a weekend retreat – you will not regret it. 
    I purchased a copy of the title for my own library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    I truly love this series, great paranormal romance tales that are completely different than any other series I've read.  The Araneae Nation and it's inhabitants are original and captivating.  As with the other books, this tale brings the perfect balance of romance, danger, adventure and mystery.

    Great Series

    Highly recommend this series for:
    1. Those who like paramormal romance, but are sick to death of vampires.
    2. Those who like epic fantasies like Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, but enjoy shorter books (around 200-250 nook pages).
    3. Those who like a strong female protagonist who can take care of herself.
    Writing/editing is good. Love the way the characters' lives are intermingling throughout the books, but each novel is a decent stand-alone. I will definitely buy subsequent books in this series.
