Author - S.J. Harper
Series - Fallen Siren .5
Genre - Urban Fantasy
Format - Kindle Freebie
Published - June 10th 2014


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.

Emma Monroe is first a Siren banished forced to live as a human keeping her abilities dormant for fear of facing the wrath of the one who tortured her. Emma has been consulting with another agent who's in Charleston working on a kidnapping turned murder when another boy is taken. Wanting to find the boy alive Emma fly's in so the two can go over the prior murders and catch the killer.

While putting in long hours Emma develops a slight interest in Zack her partner but in a non-business fashion but she refuses to let it get in the way. She also had a inkling that Zack was a werewolf and after meeting him in person it has been confirmed to her that he is. As the two work the cold cases again they find a link but the reason the boys have gone missing has nothing to do with a ransom but something my chilling.

I liked Emma right from the start she's one of those characters you can't help liking. I find her back story interesting being a fallen siren that has a mage touchstone who helps her downplay her looks. Very interesting and since this is a prequel we received a little insight into who Emma really is which I enjoyed. I also really liked Zack he's just a good guy who might just be what the Siren needs so we will have to wait and see.

I instantly was drawn the concept for Captured the idea of a fallen Siren plus the added bonus I haven't read my siren books it sounded like a must read. It doesn't hurt that the cover is beautiful and looks beautiful on my kindle hdx either. I found the concept for Captured to be captivating the authors have taken the siren idea and added their own unique spin. The authors have done a great job creating characters that are easy to connect with that you can't help falling in love with. Captured had everything I needed for it to be a perfect story. The story is loaded with mystery, action packed, hints into the paranormal world and a little romance. I've become a quick fan and can't wait to read the next installment because I really loved this one.
5 out of 5 stars
