Joanna Archer is back.
From New York Times bestselling author Vicki Pettersson, comes The Reordering, an all-new, action-packed novella, and sequel to the NYT Bestselling Signs of the Zodiac series.
Joanna Archer is a superhero … or would be if she hadn't blown up the underpinnings of the entire supernatural underworld and walked away. With the promise of new life stirring in her body, and her lover, Hunter Lorenzo, firmly at her side, Joanna believes she's earned her hard-won peace. Yet when her mother, Zoe, is reported missing, Joanna must take up arms once again and return to Las Vegas. Because there is a Reordering of the Zodiac world underway…and a powerful new evil rising from the rubble she left behind.
Never before published,The Reordering is a 25,000 word original novella.
I loved dipping my toes back into the world of Joanna Archer and the Zodiac! I can't even tell you how happy I was when I heard that there was going to be a new novella in the series, which finished with book six, The Neon Graveyard. I was mildly disappointed with the ending of that book and still had many questions. In The Reordering some of my questions were answered and I received a wonderful dose of Joanna and Hunter. At least enough to appease me until perhaps another book or spin-off series? Hmmm...?
Joanna Archer thought that she saved the world but instead, she created a reordering. The world of the Zodiac is in chaos and there's a mysterious Shadow vying for power. When Zoe Archer goes missing Joanna and Hunter must leave the peaceful existence they have finally built for themselves to find her. But when they do, will Joanna be forced to choose between the life she has growing inside of her and the one she gave up?
Tense, action-packed, and kick-ass; The Reordering continues in the same take-no-prisoners, make-no-apologies vain as the previous Signs of the Zodiac books. A quick, page-turner perfect for fans but may be confusing for new readers. My only complaint about the novella is that I wanted more sparks between Joanna and Hunter. It was sweet but lacked the heat. A must read for Zodiac fans!
