Justice Ascending (The Scorpius Syndrome #3)

By Rebecca Zanetti


Before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Tace Justice was a good ole Texas cowboy who served his country and loved his mama. After Scorpius, the world became dark, dangerous, and deadly—and so did he. The Vanguard medic is stronger, faster, and smarter than before, but he’s lost the line between right and wrong. His passion is absolute, and when he focuses it on one woman, there’s no turning back for either of them…

Sami Steel has been fighting to survive right alongside Tace, convincing the Vanguard soldiers she’s one of them. In truth, Sami is a former hacker turned government agent who worked at The Bunker, where scientists stored both contaminants and cures. Only she knows the location, and she’s not telling. Yet when sexual fire explodes between her and Tace, she’ll face even that hell again to save him.


In this third novel in The Scorpius Syndrome Series, Justice Ascending continues with the high adrenaline formula that makes this series so addictive.   From beginning to end, I couldn’t put this book down.  And I have to say that the ending was fantastic.  The action does not stop until the last page.

Justice Ascending is Tace Justice’s story.  He has been infected with Scorpius and is slowing turning into a Ripper.  This story is about him doing his best to hold on to what little humanity he has left.  He truly is a good guy at his core but he is losing his conscience and it is becoming easier to make the tough decisions between who gets to live and who doesn’t.

Sami has become one of the most trusted lieutenants in Jax Mercury’s army but she has many secrets.  She doesn’t realize the depth of feelings that she has for Tace until she starts to explore them.  She believes and trusts the man that Tace is.

Justice Ascending is action packed and continues to follow the Vanguard people and the threats against it. Jax does a great job of holding these people together against many odds, from outside and inside.  Jax is there for all his people including Tace and Sami.  He learns that even his top people have secrets to keep.

Rebecca Zanetti put tons of action, emotion and humour into this story.  I fell for Tace in Mercury Striking so I was excited for this story.  I was not disappointed, I love the fact that this is a new world and these people have to find a new way to live and love.  Tace and Sami’s relationship is an example of that.  They are given many obstacles to overcome including Tace’s dissent into his illness.
