This is book 7 in one of my favourite series. Sienna Nealon the meta-hybrid with a fistful of attitude and the strength of multiple hulks is back. For new readers I would suggest Alone: The Girl in the Box, Book 1 so you can get a better idea of how, why, when and who. I can remember saying something along the lines of this is the quiet before the storm about book six, well this book is the storm. It is the tornado called Sienna Nealon and she is crying out for vengeance and weeping tears of blood. Just not her blood. Does that sound too excited? Mayhap, but the main character shows a side to herself that even she didn't know existed. Since book one we have watched her fight internal conflicts with her humanity and now that side of her seems to be losing the battle. Wolfe still seems to be the unknown variable in the equation. He is often X or Y and sometimes both at the same time. Is he the driving force or is this ipso facto a part of her character or genetics that the Old Ones (you know them Gods and such like)know exist inside her and yet she is completely unaware of it all? Sienna ends up in merry old England and meets a quirky irish chap with a penchant for luck and witty quips. Despite her personal grievance she is forced to deal with the ultimate threat. A threat that may force a coalition of enemies. People and popular characters drop like flies being executed by a huge meta flyswat. So now let's get down to the real nitty gritty. There is a secret. Ok to be fair the fact that Old Man Winter has been keeping info to himself has been evident for a long time. That secret has something to do with who or what Sienna really is. My inner Sherlock thought I had solved it there for a moment, but then I realised that Crane was smarter. No worries, I shall figure it out, just you wait. Overall it was a cracking read and one of those books you just can't put down until you have eagerly gobbled up the last page and clicked/swiped/looked for just one page more. I received a copy of this book courtesy of the author.

This is one of those series that once you read the first words in the first book you are irreparably hooked into something so incredible and breathtaking that the waiting between books is insanely difficult. But we find a way to manage.... As we travel down this road with Sienna, the book's protagonist, we can't help but see the change that she goes through as she matures and becomes an adult. Hell, I don't think she really ever got the chance to be a child, in a sense, but we really see her develop more complex thinking that shows us she is ready to become everything she is supposed to be. All of the situations that Sienna goes through lets us peek into a more darker side that she hosts. Of course, we could also believe that all of this killing and massacres could be a direct result of having Wolfe inside her brain. But I am more prone to believe that Wolfe had some to do with it but not completely all of it. I think there is a dark side to Sienna because I believe every person has a dark side. The only difference is whether or not someone acts on it-which Sienna does and often. I actually like the fact that Sienna can represent our society with both polar opposites combined inside warring to get out through her actions. And honestly, Sienna is interesting as hell! I know I keep relating this series to the X-Men Series but it rivals it in many ways. I could honestly see myself going and seeing a movie called Girl in the Box. Or turning the tv on to DVR the series. But it should definitely be on Starz or some other paid channel because I wouldn't want it to be watered down at all. But I get ahead of myself. {Though, I would like to petition to get it movie rights too eventually} In Enemies, Sienna is not in a great place still. She has all these metas in her head and she just really doesn't know, deep down know, where she wants to be right now. So she gives Janus a try and travels to London. Yeah! Okay so I personally, like Janus. I know he is the bad guy but there is just something about him that really pulls me to him. But hey, he can influence feelings so could that be it? I kid, I kid. So I am pretty excited that she is willing to give Janus the time he needs and deep down that she needs too. Now here is where we see the great research skills of Mr. Crane. I have never been to London but from his very descriptive writing, I felt the dampness from the weather, and I just felt immersed in all of London society. I also enjoyed the way we get to experience it with Sienna for the first time. As she was awed, I was awed as well. I truly believe that Mr. Crane is on his way to mastering the art of world building because I just fall into his books so easily. Just as the world building can capture all of our senses, I firmly believe that the action scenes capture our imagination because some of the creative ways Sienna finds to disarm people is beyond me. But thankfully, for us, Mr. Crane is there to weave some very brutal and highly entertaining fighting. Okay, so there were many scenes in Enemies that really made me want to jump up out of my seat with excitement and some that made me want to put my hands over my eyes and read through my fingers. (Like when I watch Saw: hand over face, peeking through fingers ever so often) The jumping up out of my seat scene? Towards the end when Sienna and some new found allies help take on some very old trouble makers. The peering through my fingers scene? When Sienna is introduced to the one in charge. And the ending? Okay let's just say I wasn't very happy with the ending. Not because it was bad but because I was not ready for it to end. Especially like that!!!??!! Come one Crane - no fair! But I understand you have to have that one of a kind ending that doesn't repeat itself and Mr. Crane definitely keeps us on our toes with his exceptional cliffhangers. Overall, Enemies is definitely living up to what I come to expect from Robert Crane. It has a solid plot with some very emotional threads in it that can bring a tear or two, but will always satisfy my hunger for the fight that I love in my action packed stories. This is a great installment and I can't wait to get to the next one in Girl in the Box.... Or anything he puts his name on. I am truly awed by the talent that Mr. Crane exhibits every time I pick up something he has penned. I give Enemies five stars!
