(Burning Metal Series #3)
by Lisa Lace
Wrath leads Green Squad, a team of cybernetic soldiers capable of autonomous missions. Cut off from their central command by a communications glitch, Wrath believes his team has been left in the desert to perish. When a group of humans shows up a year later, he’s ready to kill.
Rachel Halliday is terrified of cyborgs, but her first assignment at her new job is to cover the retrieval of Green Squad. Though scientists warn the media to keep their distance from the cyborgs, she disobeys and gets captured. Taken to the squad leader, she’s shocked to see that Wrath looks just like Robert, the man she once loved – and had given up for dead.
Convinced that Rachel is a spy sent to betray him, Wrath doesn’t trust her, but he can’t deny his strange compulsion to protect and possess her. With a military team approaching to take over the retrieval – and memory flashbacks shorting out his system – Wrath is on the verge of remembering everything, only to lose it all over again. Can Rachel help him recover the man he was before it’s too late?
Cyborg Seduction is Book 3 in the Burning Metal series and a STAND-ALONE, full-length science fiction romance. There are no cliffhangers, and a happy ending is guaranteed!
I really enjoyed listening to CYBORG SEDUCTION by Lisa Lace. It’s first book I’ve read in her Burning Metal series but the third in the series. I have to say I was very impressed with the world building and character portrayal. It definitely made me want to go back and read the first two books in this series.
This story starts off as a group of scientists and reporters are heading into the desert to recover the “Green Squad”, a team of cyborg soldiers that have been out of contact due to their internal communication systems malfunctioning leaving no way to locate their precise location. They had survived for over a year under harsh conditions due to the leadership of Wrath, a name he gave himself based on his need to take revenge upon authorities that had left he and his team out in the desert for so long.
Rachel is one of the few reporters that was brought along to cover the breaking news of finally locating this lost team of cyborgs. When she comes face to face with Wrath, the cyborg leader, she can’t help but notice how much he resembles her first love. Robert had joined the military and not long after she had been told he’d been killed in battle. Could Wrath actually be Robert? Wrath has no memory of ever being a human. No memory of Rachel. But her very survival may depend upon her convincing him they were once in love and that she is not a conniving human sent to distract and confuse him through seduction so that the Green team can be captured and destroyed.
Cyborg Seduction is well-developed and steadily paced to keep your interest. The narrator portrayed the various characters and their emotions well. It’s a great read I highly recommend to anyone who loves SciFi and futuristic novels. 4 stars
