    Heartbreaking novella: LATYMER is the fourth storyline (novella)

    Heartbreaking novella: LATYMER is the fourth storyline (novella) in Tracey Devlyn’s Nexus series set during the backdrop of the French Revolution and Napoleon’s attempts to conquer Europe.  The Nexus Agency is a group of spies working for the British government and Latymer can only be considered a double agent-working for both the French and British government. The storyline is told from two distinctly different POVs-third person via Latymer and first person through the eyes of Latymer’s nine year old son Giles.
    The storyline follows Latymer as he and his son attempt to leave England for America.  But the agents of Nexus are hunting him down and the French want Latymer to reveal the whereabouts of Lord Somerton. What ensues is the hunt for the people responsible for his son’s disappearance and the final act of a father who so loves the son he barely knew.
    Tracey Devlyn has written a storyline that reveals there are always two sides to every story. Latymer has been the epitome of evil throughout the previous three stories but Latymer has a soft side where it concerns the woman that he loved and the son he wanted to protect. This is a heartbreaking story about a father’s love for his son and the lengths to which he will go to save his life.

    What an emotional read. Laytmer by Tracey Devlyn is the fourth b

    What an emotional read. Laytmer by Tracey Devlyn is the fourth book in her Nexus Series and full of surprises and gut wrenching emotion. Throughout the series Latymer has been the traitor. The bad guy. So, I was shocked when I found out the fourth book would be about him. It has a different feel to it than the other three books. The biggest to me is that the main love story in this book in my opinion is between a father and son, but it also shows the love that Latymer had for his wife.

    In Latymer, we find a father and son on the run from all the people and choices Latymer has made. He wants to make a new life for him and his son, Giles and that means catching a boat to America. However, in true Tracey Devlyn fashion, things are never easy. There is always a spy from some country showing up at the worst possible time.

    In this book, a big question is can a bad guy turn good? Maybe. Maybe not. However, learning the whys of Latymer’s actions sure makes you feel for the guy. Watching the way he treats his son and the love he once shared for his late wife also makes you really feel for the guy.

    In addition to Latymer and Giles story, we get to see Mac and Amelia’s story. We meet these two in book three. In Latymer, Mac wants to avenge his brother Mick’s death, however, every time he is in a position to do that, he sees Amelia’s face. I love that. He has to make a choice. Revenge or Love? Mac is conflicted but it doesn’t take much for him to realize where his future lies.

    Tracey does a magnificent job of writing Laytmer’s story. I can’t say I was thrilled at the ending of the story, but it seemed right, given the circumstances. Did I cry? Absolutely. It was heartbreaking and there is a lot packed into this novella. If you have read Tracey’s other Nexus books you really need to read Latymer. You will be so glad you did.

    Confession time--I haven't read the other books in the series. They're on my TBR pile, but there's only so much time in a week! I decided to start with this one, since it's a novella and therefore a quick read.




    I enjoyed it quite a bit--it's a dramatic and moving story--but as I don't know the characters from the other books yet, some of it didn't have the impact on me that it would have otherwise.




    Verdict--Tracey Devlyn is definitely an author I'm going to enjoy reading more from. Historical romantic suspense with spies! All my faves :) The first three books in the series have definitely moved up my TBR list. (And once I'm done, this one will definitely be a re-read!)

    Oh my Gosh!!! I can’t tell how long I’ve been waiting to get the ending of Tracey’s Nexus series!

    If you have read the third book in her series you know that we have been doped! Doped as in left hanging yet not really because it was a HEA and still it wasn’t because, well, there was no, NO ending to the case.

    But now we do have it and it’s just, sad.

    Not sad as in it suck and wasn’t good but sad as in, touching and remorseful and, SAD.

    In here we got to see things from the points of view of Latymer (for one), from his son Giles (that poor child), and from the ever revengeful Mac (whom we’ve all been waiting to read and see him have a HEA of his own).

    I don’t want to have spoilers but it’s just going to be a sad and still action packed fill read. Of course it will be sad because of all the bad things that had happen in the past three books and that Latymer is a criminal, but we felt for him in here and got to see his side of the story to his actions; which made it hard to hate him so much even if we got the same feeling back then when we got some of his POVs in the previous books too. But this one was super stronger in where we really wanted something to change the whole situation. Well, at least I felt that way.

    And yes we got little Giles’ POV and it’s just heart wrenching to read his emotions and thoughts while fearing for his and Latymer’s future. He was a brave boy.

    And then Mac. Mac really surprised me because I wasn’t expecting to see him be apart of this story, but I was really happy he was. He was more soft now and I really wanted more from him about his past life but we got most of that in the last book so it wasn’t needed here yet I still wanted it. I also really wanted more……… just more out of his and Amelia’s love story. I felt it was rushed and quick to be done with. Yes their story was also told in the past book, partially. And Yes this is call Latymer not Mac but I really did want more development and all that mess even if it might have turned into a whole book on it’s own.

    But everything was great and I highly enjoyed it. Can I say I teared? I didn’t out right bawled but I teared and got choked up but it was good. Might blame it on the previous book I read but it was good. It brought an end to the story and I was happy and sad all together.

    But now I can not wait though for the next installment of the Nexus. Apparently Tracey is writing a fourth with the handsome theif-taker Cameron Adair. Shall I tell you my guess as the Heroine? Charlotte Fielding~ Teehee

    This is a novella in the Nexus series, centering around Latymer and his son Giles.  The story is fast-paced with lots of action and intrigue. It ties
    up many of the loose ends and questions from the series.  If you are a fan of the Nexus series, you definitely will want to indulge yourself with this!
