Goodreads:  Recovering from a near fatal attack that has left her with residual trauma, including haunting dreams and flashbacks, Sydney Rye is regaining her strength at the jungle training camp of Joyful Justice, the vigilante network inspired by her now legendary acts of vengeance. However, when a routine reconnaissance mission goes horribly wrong Sydney Rye looses the trust of the leadership of Joyful Justice. 

Her good friend and trainer, Merl, warns that if she wants to be in the action she’ll have to follow orders like everyone else. Never good with authority, Sydney struggles to suppress her independent streak for the greater good. 

When she runs up against an old adversary he blows apart everything she has gained. With her and Blue’s lives at stake, as well as the future of Joyful Justice, Sydney must push aside her fears and take a leadership role before it's to late.

Kritters Thoughts:  Another part of the Sydney Rye series and having read this right after the previous one, I loved being able to read two back to back.  Sydney is hiding out in Costa Rica to heal from the events in the previous book.  

Although this one was just as action packed as the previous, I was missing out on the other characters in this book.  With Sydney in Costa Rica, I felt like she was isolated and away from the group of characters and I missed their roles in this book.  As said before there was still plenty of action, so it wasn't lacking on that front, just quite a smaller cast of characters.

I asked Emily Kimelman how many books we will see from Sydney Rye and it doesn't sound like they will end any time soon.  I like these small installments into Sydney Rye's life almost seems like each book would be a good tv episode or two!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Ebook 2014 Challenge: 71 out of 100
