Review: Assassin’s Awakening (Project Alpha #2) by N.J. Walters

The pulse-racing Project Alpha trilogy continues as a rebel fugitive comes under the care of a woman whose touch means the difference between life and death

Logan is pure Alpha, a genetically enhanced human who has escaped from the brutal gated city in which he was designed, and from the creators who want him dead. Running for his life across a ravaged Earth, Logan's goal is to survive. It's in his blood. Until he awakens wounded, bound and naked, exposed to a beautiful stranger. Now he's vulnerable to sensations he's never felt before.

Mercy Dockins has tended to many wounded men, but none as intoxicatingly perfect as Logan. Or as responsive to her curative strokes. But as passion ignites between them, Mercy's very purpose in the bleak new world order is shaken to its core: Logan has brought her not only ecstasy, but danger, too. He's drawn the enemy to her sanctuary, and now their love could soon be just another casualty of war.

This book was previously released in 2009 by another publisher under the title Have Mercy. It has been revised and updated for rerelease with Carina Press

Assassin’s Awakening, this second entry into the Project Alpha series, centers on Logan and Mercy. He is Alpha 2 and apparently flawed because he is more emotional than an Alpha should be. Mercy is very likable. I mean come on; it’s hard to not like someone who takes in orphans. Actually, I liked both of them and their story line even though it is a bit Florence Nightingale effect. Unlike its predecessor, Assassin’s Awakening, doesn’t seem to progress beyond the romance of the main characters. No new knowledge of the how and why of this new world is imparted so this is pretty much just a filler romance for one of the Alphas that gets away from The General.


I have to keep reminding myself this is erotica with a side of dystopia. I really wish it were the reverse because I was really getting into the plot line. Unfortunately, just as the plot was getting interesting, it is interrupted by sex. Well, it wasn’t BAD sex, it was more of bad timing. And speaking of timing, Whoa Nelly! Think maybe, possibly you might want to learn at least his name before going for the Big O? And I promise I won’t hash out how fast the L-Word is brought up. I’m hoping the next book has more plot. However, Assassin’s Awakening still made for good reading.
