With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynn Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynn is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…

Danger has never looked quite so delicious…

'Mercury Striking' is an exciting start to this dystopian series. We are thrust right into the heart of this world. Lynn Harmony is on the run, seeking refuge and help from Jax Mercury, the leader of a group of survivors in post-plague Los Angeles. But Lynn is no ordinary woman on the run. She represents hope for a cure and fear of the plague itself. And the dangers Lynn and Jax face go beyond the plague.

This was my first Rebecca Zanetti read, and I loved it. I was completely pulled into this world. Being from Los Angeles, I was really into the setting. But I also liked how she built the world around the "plague." Not only was the plague fascinating, but there is tons of action throughout the book. Because the plague is only one of their worries. There are a whole load of bad guys causing danger and violence, and their terror kept me on my toes throughout the read.

What also really grabbed me was the characters. I love a story with strong characters, and I got really wrapped up in Jax and Lynn's story. I loved getting to know them. I also bought into their romance. A very sexy romance, I might add. I know it was quick, but considering the situation, I completely bought it. And enjoyed it. They were a great couple. I also especially liked the side characters. The supporting cast was fantastic, and I look forward to more of them in future books. All in all, a great read!
