Blaze Erupting will give you a good enough background of this series. It’s noted that this is book #4.5, but it could also be a good prequel to the series. Though it’s not a big part of the story, Zanetti has given her readers a good view Scorpius Pandemic in the beginning. She also gives new readers a chance to view of what to expect in terms of action, drama, and romance. And my guess is, if readers like Romantic Suspense and Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic worlds, they will like this series.
It is the early stages of Scorpius Syndrome before the nation was nearly wiped out by the disease. Eleanor Smithers is the computer expert who now works with the Brigade, whose sole purpose at this moment is the defense against any current Scorpius-induced threats. Including terrorists who will take advantage of this dark time to strike. In this case, terrorists who are targeting nuclear plants. Ellie is determined that her college friend, Hugh Johnson is an expert in the matter, and she will do everything she can to bring him on board. What didn’t she expect is her feelings for him has never changed but the question is, has he?
I was happy to read about Ellie. If you’ve read this series before, you’ll know that Ellie is Lynn Harmony’s best friend. Ellie has been a complete mystery to me since her page time has been limited. I love that we finally get to know who she is, although I’d still like to know where she is in current time. I love this girl as much as Lynn Harmony. They are so much alike; a badass in their own way and very comfortable in their own skin.
I love Hugh, as well. This guy is not only smart and strong, he is also very alpha. He and Ellie have chemistry, and I love that this is a second chance for them.
Overall, a very good quick read. I couldn’t ask for anything more, except for Zanetti to write more of these books. I predict that we will get more of these short stories to fill in the gaps that we didn’t get in the full-length novels. Possibly focusing on the Brigade team, their survival leading up to the current time. There are so many avenues, Zanetti can explore but as long as Zanetti, keeps writing novella’s as good as this one, I’m all for it.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
