Summary

Join Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong. She protected him. He loved her. They can trust one another with their lives, but what about their hearts?

Special Agent Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren seeking redemption. Thousands of years ago, she was banished from Mount Olympus by Zeus and cursed by Demeter for failing to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone by Hades. Now she's working for the FBI, seeking salvation while searching for and finding the missing.

Her partner, Zack Armstrong, is a werewolf with a grievance of his own. The former Black Ops sniper who once carried out a string of questionable assignments is atoning for his past. Ironically, Zack's just discovered an important piece of his past has been magically wiped from his memory - an affair with Emma. It doesn't matter she used the spell to save his life; that's something he'll never know.

With trust eroded and love overshadowed by betrayal, the only thing holding them together is the job. When the son of multibillionaire Roger Maitlan is kidnapped and his babysitter murdered in cold blood, Emma and Zack travel to New York to work the case. They go undercover, infiltrating a playground of private dungeons where those who are rich and powerful can live out fantasies without consequence. What they find is a conspiracy born of a twisted mind and fueled by greed. The clock is ticking. Will Zack and Emma be able to find the missing boy and their way back to one another?

Emma and Zach to the rescue

Emma Monroe is a fallen siren who is trying to gain redemption and return to Olympus after Zeus and Demeter banished the sirens for not protecting Persephone when Hades kidnapped her. The gods have decreed forgiveness will come from rescuing mortal kids who are missing or kidnapping.

In this addition, her partner Zack Armstrong, a werewolf, recently remembered that they were lovers but Emma erased his memories. So their interactions are really tense and awkward.

One of Zack's friends, billionaire Roger Maitlan just asked Zack for help finding his missing son. He is hoping Zack's black ops background will help Zach rescue his son. So Emma and Zack put their issues on the backburner because Emma is possibly one soul away from redemption.

These two clearly care for each other. Part of what I hate about mythology stories is the heavy handed way and complete arbitrary way the gods rule. There is no clear path to redemption. Emma could gain forgiveness today or never. So I don't see how the gods just have these sirens working with just a slim hope of getting back to Olympus.

Emma and Zack work well as partners and their supernatural abilities give them an edge in law enforcement. Overall it was a good addition to the series.
