The long anticipated installment of the best-selling and critically acclaimed F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad series is finally here…

CLASSIFIED: The Exiled F.R.E.A.K.

What’s a F.R.E.A.K. to do after all her hopes and dreams literally died in front of her? Telekinetic Beatrice Alexander went from flying around the country in a private jet, saving innocent lives from monstrous threats to living in her grandmother’s house, playing video games and drinking too much. Directionless, hiding from her problems and trauma, she will do anything not to confront her deadly actions that fateful night in North Carolina three months before. Any distraction will do.

Enter Lord Connor McInnis.

Drawn to the sexy, powerful ruler of San Diego, Beatrice soon loses herself in the passion and luxury of the vampire’s world. But when she finds herself caught in the middle of a centuries old vampire rivalry, Beatrice must decide: how far is she willing to go for those she loves…and for herself?




It's been a while since I've read book 4 of Jennifer Harlow's F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation series and I don't recall any of the books being as dark and angst-ridden as SIN EATER. Without giving away too much of the plot, High Moon (book 4) ended tragically which explains why Beatrice Alexander is such a hot mess and hard to like for the most part.  

This 5th installment has me torn in the middle so allow me to start with why part of me struggled with SIN EATER. Trixie made it so easy for me to hate her. She was angry all the time, very antagonistic and made a lot of stupid decisions. Granted she offered a lot of smexy time but it's so uncharacteristic of her it was painful to witness her go down the self-destructive path. 

Then again it's this edgy feel that made SIN EATER such a worthwhile read. I've gotten invested in this series and its characters that it's hard not to be blasé about the whole thing. And as I'm not a big fan of angsty stories, getting through this was trying, and because this tragedy is happening to someone (albeit a fictional character) I deeply care about, makes it feel like enduring nails on a chalkboard. 

SIN EATER is, simply put, one of those pivotal volumes that turned the series on its head. I have to admit that I missed the banter, snark, and dry humor but considering where things were in book 4, everything that happened here is a natural progression of the plot. I love how JHarlow transformed this series through Bea and her heartbreak. I still hope that we'll get back the easy gait we had in the first four books while at the same time I also like that moving forward, F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation will now have this dark edgy feel to it.
