Everyone wants justice.
That’s what Assistant DA, Lulu Lightly, tells me.
“Cathedral City needs you to set things right,” she says. “To rid this place of corruption once and for all.”
I’d like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. But mostly her clothes.
“I want you to fight the good fight with me,” she says.
Hell, yeah. I’m always up for a fight.
“We should stand up and be the voice of the people,” she says.
Sure, I hear voices. Sometimes I even listen to them.
“Figure out what’s good for the City and put it first,” she says.
Oh, honey… what’s good for the City is bad for the people. Trust me, I know. I’m Case Reider—insane Alpha, nefarious inventor, and I understand this town better than anyone.
Cathedral City needs me all right. Just not the way you think.
I’m not the justice you’re looking for, Lulu Lightly.
I’m still the same villain you left behind.
Only now… there’s something very, very wrong with me.
Anarchy Missing is incredibly intense! Like wow – so much is happening in such a short time it’s like I’m out of breath, and at the same time, I just want more!
It’s not all that easy to pick an exact genre for Anarchy Missing, as there are some sci-fi or paranormal elements, and it’s definitely urban, and its very hot. What else do you need to know, right? The overall plot didn’t advance too much in this instalment, but the pace was fast, and the character interactions were intense and filled with danger. I loved Lulu, she’s the kind of heroine I can get behind. She is strong, she is able to take a step back and try to see things form a different perspective. She is rational and intelligent. She’s got street-smarts, too, and knows to trust her gut. Case, well, he was different from Anarchy Found, that’s for sure. And if you’ve read that one (if not, you really, really should!) you kind of know why, too.
Thomas and Linc were very present in Anarchy Missing, as were Molly and Sheila. Sheila almost deserves her own book, virtual reality AI person that she is. I love her snarkiness, and how she can be in more than one place at the same time. And how loyal she is to her super alphas. And how suspicious she is to the women in their lives – at least until they prove themselves and get Sheila’s loyalty as well.
The excitement in Anarchy Missing is so strong your heart will try to beat its way out of your chest. And you’ll have so many different theories before you get to the end, and you still won’t get it right. But you’ll still have fun theorising, of course. And while there is a lot of tense feelings here, there is fun and romance, too. And I can just imagine a beautiful light show with hearts, spirals and artistic features that brings the heat ON!
Written in first person point of view, present tense, and from either Case or Lulu’s perspectives, the story unfolds quickly, and I loved that Lulu and Case had a past together, and their getting to meet each other again made me swoon. Huss has done it again!
I’d like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. but mostly her clothes.
Is that how it’s supposed to work? Is the law malleable? Can you pound it into submission and shape it into anything you want like a piece of soft metal? God, I hope not. If this is the way it works – if this is how it is everywhere – then I made the wrong choice when I became a lawyer.
