Overview

Taken by Fire by Sydney Croft

HIS MISSION WAS TO DESTROY HER.
BUT DESIRE GOT IN THE WAY.
 
A product of genetic manipulation, Melanie Milan shares a body with her malevolent sister, Phoebe. A sleek, blond predator with a heart of pure darkness, Phoebe puts their body through the wicked underbelly of sex for thrills—when she’s not igniting her pyrokinetic skills for an evil organization bent on taking over the world. Melanie rarely gets out to play—much less fall in love. But that changes when rival ACRO agent Stryker Wills shows up, with a mission to terminate the woman who torched his partner.

An operative with rare abilities, Stryker soon realizes that the woman he’s about to kill isn’t the murderous fire starter he’s been hunting. But he does want her. Melanie, with the power to ice anything in her path, is heating things up in ways that are setting fire to his blood. As long as Melanie stays in control, she is his best ally to bring down her sister and stop hellish havoc from being unleashed. Walking a tightrope of longing and hate, Stryker and Melanie begin to understand that true power lies in sweet surrender to each other, to the flames between them, to the erotic adventure that’s joined their hearts and abilities to become their salvation—and perhaps the world’s.

This is the last novel in the series and I loved reading it, seeing the characters all coming together again. I loved the idea of Phoebe and Melanie-- combining identical twins in the same body. I hope there will be another book out soon.

This final book was amazing. Believe it or not I cried a couple of times reading the story. Sydney Croft is truly a great writer. I am very saddened that this is the final book of the series, but Sydney ended the story PERFECTLY.

Agency of Covert Operations (ARCO) operative Stryker Wills watched in helpless horror the ice-blooded fire-starter Phoebe Milan kill his friend Akbar. He vowed to avenge Akbar's murder by killing this cold ruthless pyro-kinetic psychopath. Stryker catches up with the predator, but realizes something is wrong. The woman is not the evil flamethrower, but instead her sister Melanie the ice maker. To his chagrin the ARCO agent is attracted to Melanie. However, he soon learns due to genetic reengineering, the siblings share the same body, but control different brain parts with evil Phoebe as the dominant one mostly running the show until now. Passive Melanie takes charge as love battles hate for control of their host body while Stryker needs the sister who has his back instead of the one stabbing his back as they save the world. This is an incredibly inventive finish to the ACRO science fiction saga as the multiple subplots will keep readers wondering what next. Fast-paced and loaded with action, the strange triangle makes for a powerful thriller. The hero wants to save one sibling while killing the other; and his superiors and peers demand he assassinate both to insure fire does not overwhelm ice as it has frequently done and argue besides inertia means guilt by tacit association. Sydney Croft writes a brilliant ending to one of the best series in recent years. Harriet Klausner

I hope this isn't the last ACRO adventure. Of course it's ridiculous but I still want more. Stryker like every other hero in these type of books is perfect and sexy as hell. The Phoebe/Mel thing was a little stupid, still not sure why Itor thought it was a good idea. Want more Dev and Gabe. Freaking Oz is gone an he was my favorite.

I initially thought of Stryker as a secondary character in the series, but it was ingenious, the way Sydney Croft brought him to the forefront, especially after what happened in the previous book, which was based on Sela, Marlene, Chance and Logan. (I'm not giving out any spoilers, so you'll have to read the series.) Everything came to a head in this final book. There was a lot of closure on many loose ends, and some fantastical (downright impossible) incidents, but somehow, Croft made it work. Amazing! Again, solid ending to a very good series.
