Memento Mori Reviews
5 Star Review of Memento Mori (Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten #1) by Lexi Blake
The first in a new series spin off from the hugely popular Masters and Mercenaries. When I heard about this series I jumped at the chance to read.
Rescued by McKay Taggart, 6 men wander the world no longer knowing their true identities. Used as experiments they have had their memories stripped from them and they all react in varying ways.
This is Jax’s (formally known as Harvey)story and that of the woman who c ...more
Memento Mori (Masters & Mercenaries: The Forgotten #1) by Lexi Blake
M/F Romance, Thriller
Triggers: Stalking, Murder
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.
While this is the first book in the forgotten series, I suggest that you read the previous books in the Masters & Mercenaries, as there are quite a few crossover characters and plot lines that follow in to this series.
This is Jax's story. The Lost Boys are on the trail of their past and despite the dangers, ...more
Welcome to the world of Lost Boys. Here you get to meet tall, dark, handsome, somewhat-brooding, mostly crazy or innocent boys who are out there in the world to find more about their identity, which they lost because they were subjected to some crazy laboratory experiments.
Jax Seaborne, is one such lost soul, who is looking for a true connection in this world. Hence, when the Lost Boys visit Bliss, a small town, to find their secret past, and possibly a cure, Jax finds himself being drawn toward ...more
Originally I was planning on giving this book a pass. I use to wait with baited breath for every book this author released, but her latest ones just haven't been that great. Or maybe my tastes have changed, I don't know, but like a bad drug habit I was jonesing for a fix, so I dove in and hoped for the best.
And...I enjoyed it. Was it as good as the early M&M books (that I still reread often), honestly? Not really, but it was undoubtedly one of the better ones she has written of late. Still, ...more
Memento Mori is the first book in a spin off from Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series featuring a group of men known as "The Lost Boys" who were previously rescued by Taggart and the McKay crew in the original books. I have to admit I'm fairly new to Lexi's work, I fell in love with her writing this year when I discovered her rereleases of the Nights in Bliss and Texas Sirens series previously written under the pen name of Sophie Oak and I'm slowly catching up on her urban fantasy Thieve ...more
Why is Owen getting a book when we all know that Solo and Ezra must get their happily ever after, like yesterday? Why is Lexi Blake so kin on torturing us again and again, while we wait for the next book? Why did she have to set up so many stories in this book and leave me hanging? We got only two answers in this book. One is the identity of the lost boy whom we know as Jax and the other is more like a glimpse of Ezra's past. We had so many answers and second chances slip through our fingers in ...more
Bringing together two of her past series, Ms. Blake gives readers a sensual and suspenseful series starter that will leave them wanting more. She takes readers to a dark place throughout this story, courtesy of the main couple’s painful pasts, before giving them a bit of light in this tale’s hard-fought HEA that’s just the beginning for a group of men trying to find themselves.
Jax, along with five other young men, endured years of pain and degradation at the hands of a madwoman before being resc ...more
So. The Lost Boys. I was intrigued to see what the author was going to do with this story, and I have to say that it lived up to all of my expectations.
Although involving characters that we have come to know and love from the Masters and Mercenaries series, this has a completely different feel.
Jax is refreshing as a male lead. The straightforward way in which he (and his brothers) approach daily life is filled with humour and yet their story is underscored with heartache at the same time.
Well b ...more
