Blurb from Goodreads
For centuries, the Petrescu family has been protecting society from a danger that moves among the population undetected. Eighteen-year-old Vasi Petrescu has never had a problem carrying out his duty, but, when ordered to eliminate an eighteen-year-old girl, he is immediately taken out of his comfort zone.

The Syndicate has never targeted a female before, yet somehow this one has ended up on more than one hit list. Vasi would like to find out why, but there may not be time.

Now, he'll have to decide whether or not to keep her alive even if it means going against his own family.

The action, mystery, and conspiracy in The Syndicate will take readers on an immersing journey in which decisions are not only life changing, but irreversible.
My Thoughts:
Mind blowing Awesomeness!

The Syndicate, is nothing short of AMAZING!! The cover is enough to lure the reader in, but the story within is full of conspiracy, twists, an unforgettable budding romance, bonds, action and more! This is one book you will NOT want to miss out on.

Vasile Petrescu is a Guard for Syndicate. Their duty is to protect the world from the awful Hybrids, who infect them if bitten. The Guards get assignments to hunt and kill these evil Hybrids when told, but Vasi's new assignment isn't what he or his sister, Rosi (his Scout), suspected. Riley Bennett is a girl. It didn't make sense. They don't harm women. Females can't be Hybrids. The DNA doesn't mix and never has. What's worse...she isn't infected.

Vasi has a choice to make. Follow through on this assignment against his instincts or listens to the wisdom that his father had shared with him, “Follow his intuition.” And risk being terminated from the Syndicate.

The plot is solid and the chemistry between the characters is fantastic. It is told from a male POV, which is becoming quit popular. I have become fond of this myself. She does an excellent job portraying the story from a male POV, which is nice to eliminate the emotional tides female protagonist usually take on. The writing is smooth and the action is paced perfectly. Weaving in unexpected twists throughout the story was executed with precision that only a skilled and crafted writer can do, which Shelena obviously mastered. I was so impressed with this story, I will be on pins and needles until there's another book. This, my friends, is not an exaggeration. I loved every facet of this story.

Shelena makes her own rules. Doesn't use the cat and mouse scenario. She plays it how we want it. -I Loved this! I definitely recommend this book.

I would like to Thank, Shelena for the opportunity to review her phantasmagorical story.
My Rating:
5/5 Snowflakes
