*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*
Penumbra is book three of the Spook Squad series by Keri Arthur. It was originally published by Imajinn Books in 2005. The version I am reviewing is the new one published by Random House in October 2014. It is available in both paperback and e-book formats.
This was a can’t put down read. I started and couldn’t put down till I got to the end. Keri Arthur kept me riveted to the pages.
Sam started her new assignment even with Gabriel’s warning. She knew that Stephen had withheld information, but she needed to do this. Gabriel didn’t like his new partner for a couple of reasons. One is he doesn’t know when to shut up and second is because he isn’t Sam. But he has to deal with it.
During her assignment things start to happen and Sam learns that the suspect that the SIU have been after was her twin brother. She finds out that they can’t kill him without killing her in the process due to her link with him. Gabriel wants him dead but decides that it isn’t worth Sam’s life. But Gabriel and Sam know that they have to take him down together as a team.
Finally Gabriel realizes that he needs Sam more than he wanted to admit in the beginning. Sam remembers that she can shift and remembers that she is a hawk same as Gabriel. Gabriel tells Sam that hawks mate for life and in not so many words tells Sam that he wants that with her.
I give Penumbra 5 stars and recommend the Spook Squad series to anyone who likes paranormal and Urban Fantasy. This is a great series.
