Wasp's Nest

Wasp's Nest 
Roma series by Gabriel Valjan
WASP’S NEST (Book #2)

In the highly anticipated sequel to Roma, Underground, Bianca returns to the U.S. for her former employer, the covert organization Rendition, to investigate Cyril Sargent and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. Although ambivalent about the assignment and uneasy about her online “friend,” Loki, she is enticed into researching what Sargent is doing with insect genetics that might upset the world of cancer research and treatment. Old friends Farrugia and Gennaro uncover a twisted conspiracy from their past and join Bianca in Boston where they will experience conflicted loyalties, question allies, and confront uncertain enemies, as they’re drawn into the wasp’s nest.

“Again, Valjan successfully conflates multiple sophisticated narratives that bring the past and present together, which the archaeological theme of the last novel also helps accomplish . . . Black is back and just as entertaining as ever.”
—Kirkus Book Reviews

“…a compelling reading, action-packed and with intriguing characters. The plot had plenty of twists and turns, some surprising secrets, and it kept me on the edge of my seat, guessing until the very end.”
—The Book Junkie

My Review
After reading ROMA, UNDERGROUND (Book #1) I did not see how book two could possible top it and yet it did. Wasp's Nest had many of the same characters as book one did which was nice as I began book two having already gotten to know many of the characters already in book one. 
My favorite part of Wasp's nest was that moment where I really understood why the title wasp's nest was chosen for this book. That was the moment when many of the plot elements started to come together in my head. However I won't go into more detail so as to avoid spoiling it for you.
I am pumped up after finishing Wasp's Nest and I will be starting THREADING THE NEEDLE (Book #3) shortly. Make sure to look for my review of it on November 9th.
I was provided with a copy of this book by the author or publisher.

  1. Thank you for reading. Yes, wasp's are rather unpleasant creatures. I look forward to your thoughts about Bianca in Milan in Book 3. Thank you.
