Review: Elite Metal by Heather Long, Jennifer Kacey, Sabrina York, Saranna DeWylde, Rebecca Royce, Anna Alexander, Roxie Rivera

For decades the US Marines funded a top-secret unit known as Elite Recon. A deadly group of men and women sent to infiltrate dozens of countries completely undetected. Mission objectives so extreme casualties were not only probable, but expected.

The current batch of operatives had returned from hundreds of assignments unscathed…until one mission went horribly wrong. Several men lost their lives and the group disbanded. The remaining leathernecks were scattered in the wind with new identities. They were told to blend in. Be normal. Or face being forever silenced just like their fallen brothers.

Now, two years later, each living member of the group is kidnapped and given a chance to make things right. But this time they’re no longer under the thumb of Uncle Sam. A mysterious private backer who knows about their past has brought them back together. No longer are they forced to turn a blind eye to the lost and forsaken.

Duty is their salvation.

A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.

How many fans of the Avengers out there?  *raises hand* Oh yes!  Well guess what.  Some of my favorite authors have put together the most amazing collection of “avengers.”  Okay, so none of them are from another planet.  They are all from the good ol’ US of A.  None of them have actual “superpowers.”  They just have all the best training that can be provided, not to mention natural talents.  What they do all have in common though?  Loyalty.  Honor.  Family.  And a thirst for vengeance.

Enter the world of Elite Metal.  To the outside world they are a Motorcycle club.  Little does the world know that they are also the most lethal group of highly skilled former Marines with a driving desire to bring down the forces that almost destroyed them with bad intel and then left them abandoned to a cruel unforgiving world with no past and bleak futures.  Meet these down to earth Avengers and the people they love.

Meet Steele – BOUND BY STEELE by Jennifer Kacey & Anna Alexander – one of the tortured, guilt ridden leaders of Elite Recon who made a disastrous decision that destroyed the teams and Alayna, the CIA mole that was fed bad intel.  Their coming together lead to healing, forgiveness, and hope that there was still a future.

Co-leader Chrome – CHROME’S SALVATION by Jennifer Kacey – and Cammie.  Cammie is so sweet doing all she can to get her young siblings back safe and sound, but she brought Chrome to his knees.

Computer geek, Adamantium –ADAMANTIUM’S ROAR by Anna Alexander – gets smack upside the head by his past when he finds high school crush Beth in need of the kind of help only he and his brothers and sister can provide.

Chameleon, Copper – PURE COPPER by Heather Long – the only female of the group, gets sideswiped by the only person who has ever actually seen HER, former CIA agent Gabriel.

Hot Master Dom Sterling – STERLING’S SEDUCTION – meets his match with reporter Roni when she shows up.  She may look like she is only looking for a story, but she just wants her sister back.

PLATINUM’S CHOICE by Rebecca Royce – he just wanted what everyone else wanted.  His family to be safe.  Hence no-one knew about his son until someone starts taking shots at The Boy and his teacher, Rose.

Heavily scarred Mercury – MERCURY’S POISON by Saranna DeWylde – doesn’t feel he has any redeeming qualities left until Dr. Hazel insists over wise.

Silver – FORGED IN SILVER by Roxie Rivera – the bad boy of the group needs the most forgiveness for his choices.  But Poppy, the “liaison” between the team and Warbucks is more than ready to bring this bad boy back to the fold.  I was so happy to see Poppy get to find happiness too.

Warbucks?  He was the elusive “money man” that – um – initiated these “Avengers” back into the fight against the evils of the world, like Red Wolf.  *sigh* Although, I think he needs to get a larger compound.  The team keeps acquiring more family.

Let’s not forget the “ghosts” that flitted around each of the stories.  Just who are they?  Why are they here?

I adored how these authors came together to present this collection of stories about heroes that we all want out there looking out for us, and the extended family that provides them the courage and drive to continue the fight no one else wants to undertake.  Each author brought her own voice to this collection but each contributed to the overall theme of loyalty, honor and family.  Well done.

I even loved the WTF ending that was lobbed at us.  I can’t wait for the next book!

    Great review, Pansy! “I even loved the WTF ending that was lobbed at us. I can’t wait for the next book!” Does that mean that there’s a cliffhanger ending to this unconventional boxed set?

    • Pansy Petal

      NO! No Cliffhanger. I do apologize for that panic inducing statement. I repeat, there is not a cliffhanger. Just a wonderful set up for the next book. A totally fantastic must read with a satisfying ending. So sorry Michelle!

      • Michelle

        LOL! No need to apologize, Pansy. I was merely checking. I’m intrigued by the notion that one books builds up to the next so they’re actually cohesive. And lookie here, for once the shoe is on the other foot. I’m convinced to get this 🙂

        PS: The Amazon buy link leads to More Than This (O’ Learys Book 1) by Shannyn Schroeder, not the Elite Metal bundle. Thought you’d like to know 😉

  2. Pansy Petal

    So glad I could help Michelle! 😀 I think you will love this as I do. Oh no! Jeep Diva – what can we do about that link? Thanks Michelle.
