A CRACKER OF A WAY TO START A NEW SERIES
5 Star Review of Memento Mori (Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten #1) by Lexi Blake
The first in a new series spin off from the hugely popular Masters and Mercenaries. When I heard about this series I jumped at the chance to read.
Rescued by McKay Taggart, 6 men wander the world no longer knowing their true identities. Used as experiments they have had their memories stripped from them and they all react in varying ways.
This is Jax’s (formally known as Harvey)story and that of the woman who comes into his life River Lee.
Now in the town of Bliss to investigate a long abandoned research facility Jax is tormented by his lack of a past and what he did while under the control of the mad doctor. However in Jax has found a little peace in Bliss.
However when his past comes back to haunt him, danger will rear it’s head. Will Jax be able to keep River safe or will he lose the woman who has come to mean so much to him?
Nobody does romantic suspense books like Lexi Blake. Memento Mori is filled with suspense, danger, intrigue and the growth of a deep and committed love; one that made my heart pound at times. Lexi Blake always ensure that her characters are never one dimensional or superficial and I was engrossed from the first chapter to the last. As always it was great to see some familiar faces pop into the book.
I cannot wait to see what Ms.Blake has in store for the rest of The Lost Boys, The Forgotten… as they seek to find their past and in doing so find their future.
