Since being rescued from the torture of the corporation, James Hagan has been left unable to transform, though all the evidence points to the fact he's an improved version of what he was before. When PSI Ops starts looking into the Corporation's people of interest, James starts working on Hacker, Laney, someone who doesn't want to be found but seems to have forged a connection with James via online gaming. But when they meet everything changes around them...
It's now official, I love this series! I enjoyed Act of Mercy (book 1) and Act of Surrender just got better! Its the story and the interconnections as much as the characters...after all who doesn't like the idea of incrediably attractive supernaturals saving the world?
I loved Laney, she was quirky and different for sure, but she also didn't need anyone to take care of her, and was more than happy to do things on her own, and on her own terms. When she saw things that should have made her freak out, she held her own, and lets not forget she can literally kick ass!
There were quite a few mysteries in Act of Surrender, some of which didn't actually become clear until the end, but I liked that, and I do wonder how some of them are going to fit into the story as a whole (namely Casey).
I liked the romance between Laney and James. They'd been talking for about a week on their online game (via headsets) and each felt drawn to the other, but they seemed to have the real get to know you talks. When they were in person and the action started there was less time for that, which made the original get to know you stage worth it!
I loved Act of Surrender, I didn't want to put it down!
