Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 90 - Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson, Snared by Jennifer Estep, Echoes in Death by J.D. Robb

Wanted and Wired (Tether #1)Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first in a new paranormal series Wanted and Wired spends its time developing the world and the characters. It starts with a job gone bad and moves on to developing the two main characters. Heron is a post human which means he is wired and part machine. Mari is his partner and is different from what she seems. While the job gone bad puts both in the crosshairs of some very bad people Jackson uses that to build and develop the world Heron and Mari live in. At the same time we get to know more and more about Heron and Mari and how they react to the danger they are in. This is book one and a lot is left up in the air. I did enjoy seeing the world through Heron and Mari eyes and look forward to the next book in the series.

Snared (Elemental Assassin, #16)Snared by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gin has been through a lot and in book 16 she goes through even more while trying to find and rescue a friends sister. While that is the focus of the action the flashbacks that Gin has change her focus. She is still going after the Circle but now she has some additional information that leaves her wondering about one of her main opponents. Estep has stepped up the action and the mystery and set Gin on a path that has some different elements including help from an unexpected source. There is still a lot that Gin needs to know before she succeeds in her quest to bring down the Circle. As usual there is a great cast of characters who help keep the story moving. A very interesting addition to the series.

Echoes in Death (In Death, #44)Echoes in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this latest book Eve Dallas faces a situation that closely echoes something that happened in her past. While chasing the person responsible she has to face her past again. She does get her man and in a surprise at the end helps someone face what they did. Both are stronger at the end. We do get to see more of Roarke and how he and Eve are doing after several years of marriage. I liked this story and thought it was one of the better in the series.
