Winter Kim values her family, and when it is threatened, she goes into action. Picking up immediately after the action in Vicarious, Ferocious takes readers around the world and deeper into Winter's troubled past.
With the death of the man who saved her from Los Angeles and sex slavery, Winter feels out of place and doesn't know what to do. She has the ViSE, Vicarious Sensory Experiences, which she got from Gideon. She has the abilities she has been training to learn how to use. Although two of her friends are in the hospital, hurt in the same attack which took Gideon's life, she still has the abilities conferred to her by her multiple personalities.
When she is contacted by someone from her past, the lure of a missing brother is dangled before her. Long forgotten memories continue to resurface. She needs to help her brother before she can help herself. She also wants revenge on the man who killed Gideon. That journey will take her to LA and Seoul, Korea. Death and pain follow her every move.
This is a sequel to Vicarious. Readers need to start there in order to understand the characters. Both novels are fast paced and entertaining, although the last 100 to 150 pages seem to disappear once the action really gets going. This seems to be the concluding volume as most everything seems to be wrapped up, but with a few things left for the readers to imagine.
