REVIEW: Captured by SJ Harper


Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf.
Their mission is redemption.

Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way.

Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman.

When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.

This book kept me glued to the page. The case reminds me of an episode or two of Criminal Minds and the plot was easy, but not too easy. I wanted more from the paranormal element, but there’s enough to definitely pique interest. I love the dynamic between Zach and Emma. I can’t wait to read more of those two! This book was actually written after book 1 in the series, which I haven’t read, but feels like a great introduction to the characters and world.

Bottom Line:

Captured is a fun prequel with a good balance of mystery, romance, excitement, and danger. It’s emotional due to the nature of the case and will definitely leave you wanting more in the best way!
