    The sixth and final (at least for now) book of the

    , this book has been a long time coming, but it was SO worth the wait! Marcus and Penny’s story is sweet, funny, intense, super sexy and gorgeously romantic, set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world still searching for answers and dealing with every day dangers, but that is also finally starting to settle. I loved being back in this world, and loved every moment of this book.

    Marcus Knight is the younger brother of Vanguard leader, Jax Mercury. Held prisoner, tortured and experimented on, he has lost not only his memory, but most of who he is, and he is pretty much emotionless except for the anger that is constantly simmering, and his obsession with the doctor who saved him, Penelope Kim.

    Penny may just be one of the only doctors left alive after the Scorpius bacteria wiped out most of the world’s population. Since being rescued by Vanguard, she has quickly found her place and is working hard to help the survivors living in Vanguard-Merc territory. But her main focus is the find a way to help pregnant women deliver healthy babies, thus ensuring the continuation of the human race. But Penny has another problem – a strong, fierce and broody man who refuses to leave her side, and who has begun to infiltrate her fantasies.

    This is such a fun set-up! Yes, Marcus is super-possessive and protective, and somewhat obsessed, and while Penny should possibly be scared of him, she’s one of the few people who treats him like a man, acknowledging the trauma that he’s been through and caring deeply for him. There is an underlying chemistry between them, and as they get to know each other outside of the bunker where they were both held, and Marcus starts to adjust back into the real world, things begin to change.

    Marcus and Penny have a fantastic dynamic. You can feel their chemistry and the sexual tension that sizzles between them, and once they give in to that, this book is seriously steamy. But there is a deeper connection between them that starts to bring out Marcus’ feelings, and that’s both beautifully sweet and seriously funny.

    Apart from the dramas of living in a dangerous and deadly post-apocalyptic LA, Marcus and Penny have issues closer to home that they need to deal with. It seems that the secret to human-kind’s survival could be buried in Marcus’ lost memories, and as the Vanguard team dig for answers, he’s afraid of what may be unleashed - especially if Penny is in the firing line. It creates great intensity, and shows not only Marcus’ vulnerability, but also Penny’s strength, and I loved their honesty through it all and seeing their feelings for each other deepen as they figure it all out

    Alongside the romance, the members of the Vanguard-Merc crew are trying to survive in the post-Scorpius world. Death is always a possibility, and with the threat of gang wars, rippers on the loose, and a homicidal President after them (as well as the every-day struggles of food, water, shelter and medicine), the time has come for the move their settlement to a more permanent home. But with every step forward, there are two steps back, and it seems they have a traitor in their midst. It will take all of their combined strengths to make this final push to settle into their new world, and it’s an exciting and fast-paced ride as we watch it all happen.

    The characters from previous books in the series all appear, and I loved catching up with them. All of those alpha males and strong females are a fantastic combination, and I loved seeing them all working together, teasing, bantering and arguing as they fight for their future. And in the middle of all of the action and excitement, Marcus and Penny’s love story unfolds beautifully.

    I love this world, I love this series, and this is a great book to finish on. It's exciting, funny, dramatic and romantic, and I thought the ending wrapped up really well, though maybe a little too quickly - but that could just be me and my mild obsession with the series, I’m not ready to let go and would have loved to have seen just a bit more. But Rebecca Zanetti hasn’t ruled out returning to this world for future books, and I would be right on board if she does!

    As a bonus, the ebook has a short story at the end of it which is set before the series, and is a great little extra which helped dull the pain of it all being over.

    I loved it! 4.5 stars.

    I wanted to give this book 5 stars, I truly did. I loved this series, it was the perfect balance between ruthlessness, romance, bravery, survival instincts.

    The romance between Penny and Marcus was perfect. I loved them apart, I loved them together, I loved the way he was broken and how she helped him see that no matter how other people loves, each way is unique. Marcus has serious problems, he always will. But nobody can say he doesn't love Penny, even if it's a different way from other people.

    The book was quite alright until around 80%. I looked at where I was and I asked myself how could the author possibly wrap up the entire series that way. The short answer is: with a lot of shortcuts.

    Georgia's character for example... why was she even created? She appeared briefly, we were told she tortured Marcus and she disappeared. At the end, we learn she died off page, killed by the President.

    Larry's betrayal. Why? I mean, why create problems, sending every warrior on alert, when your clear directive was taking Lynne? Wouldn't it be easier to keep a low profile, so the surveillance wasn't that high and strike when nobody was expecting it?

    And the ending. The cure for the pregnant women. It was cool and everything, but I hoped it would involve the Bunkers, with all the trouble they went to find them.

    All that "let's make you president"? A very nice bow to tie it all up, telling us how things were going to go.

    I don't know. I enjoyed the book, as I did with all the others in the series. But the ending was too short for me, too hurried. I wish I had more.

    In a time when a pandemic has wiped out 95% of the world’s population and left the rest changed, you have our hero who was ruthlessly experimented on to become a super soldier and our heroine who is a doctor that saved his life. Now he follows her around protecting her from the world until she can’t stand it any more and challenges him head on- of course sparks are going to fly.⁣

    I’ve been obsessed with the series since the beginning and these characters especially waiting for them to get their own book! The whole series has a big story arc that gets tied up with this book so I don’t recommend this as a stand alone- at times the arc takes over (which I was totally fine with). I feel like I almost wanted more darkness from the hero but they got their HEA which was exactly what I needed.⁣

    Knight Awakening is (I think?) the last book in the Scorpius Syndrome series, and I didn't really feel that it lived up to its predecessors. There was still action, romance, hardship, betrayal and danger. However, it didn't really have the same extremely urgent feel the other books had.

    Also, I felt like the ending was way too 'easy' and kind of too nicely tied up in a bow than I would have expected. Some of the things that happened in the end weren't fully explained, so I was left with a hunger

    I remember being so excited with the first of the Scorpius books when Jaxs story first appeared on my feed, and thought that Rebecca Zanetti had a fantastic thing going herewith an overall narrative arc, several pairings set up for book sequels and a rich, dystopic world for exploration. That there was the introduction of new characters and pairings along the way made me want more as well.

    But my excitement waned as the series wore on, not because of the context or the world-building itself, but

    I remember being so excited with the first of the Scorpius books when Jax’s story first appeared on my feed, and thought that Rebecca Zanetti had a fantastic thing going here—with an overall narrative arc, several pairings set up for book sequels and a rich, dystopic world for exploration. That there was the introduction of new characters and pairings along the way made me want more as well.

    But my excitement waned as the series wore on, not because of the context or the world-building itself, but that I found myself increasingly disconnected from the pairings and a style of writing that felt abrupt, weirdly unpredictable and changeable at times, so much so that I couldn’t quite get into the emotional voices of the protagonists at all.

    ‘Knight Awakening’ was no different. I was eager to see how it would have all come together as we raced to a conclusion, but with multiple POVs and the number of loose threads that Zanetti tried to tie up, Marcus/Penny felt like a side story in a book that was supposed to be theirs, only that there were too many interruptions with so many other things happening at once that I couldn’t quite focus and enjoy a growing relationship that just felt skin deep despite the tension simmering between them. The start-stop feel of them trundling along tripped me up continuously and there were parts where I struggled to see how Marcus/Penny were actually growing as a couple apart from jumping into bed together.

    But if that dragged on a bit—with some waffling on plot and character—, the sudden, bewildering shift in pace towards the very end to a quick, quick resolution did no justice to the overall arc that deserved more than a snap-of-the-fingers ending, almost as though Zanetti tired of the storytelling and decided to wrap it up in several sentences of telling rather than showing.

    In all, this shaped out to be an uneven read with scenes that were quite engrossing and some twists and turns that I enjoyed. But I wish I could have liked ‘Knight Awakening’ better…after all, there’s quite a bit of nostalgia for this series when it started out so well but then took some knocks along the way, more so for a pairing that I’d come to root for a long time ago.

    I felt as is this was just a quick end. It was not satisfying and felt rushed. Im very disappointed.

    Avoid. Another author who starts a series but either doesn't finish or draaggs out the releases. This one was supposed to be released "soon" at the end of 2018. Then it was listed for release in Nov 2019. Now it is "supposed" to be released Feb of 2020. I'm done with this series and all Rebecaa Zanetti's books.
