The Mission by LJ Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Standalone - Clairmont #2
Release: May 17, 2016
Length: 330 pages

Legacies aren’t meant to rise from incredible odds. This is the saga of Sebastian and Evie, a harrowing, thrill-ride of a love story that neither of them will foresee, and the Tribe of Five will be stunned to discover. Sebastian Christos is expected to live his father’s life, working for the seedy underbelly of the Greek mafia. Evie Neal’s future couldn’t be more different—raised in a cloistered sect, promised to Ezra Kane, the future leader of the Fathers of the Right.

When Sebastian is accused of swindling his mob ties, the only safe haven is the chaste community. It’s a temporary reprieve from his unsavory existence and the sight of Evie Neal is a startling bright light in his bleak world. For the first time, the two find love. But with a price on his head, a debt to organized crime, and Evie destined to marry another man, Sebastian has a few challenges to face—a mission to complete—all before the patriarch of a legacy can come into his own.

My Review

The story picks up where Ruby Ink left off. It switches from the past to the present and back again quite smoothly. I enjoyed how Evie and Sebastian discovered each other and revealed how different the worlds that they belonged to really were. Evie's background was almost cult-like. Her sect was at once free but strict. Evie seemed to have an innate curiosity that the other members lacked and it helped her to form a connection with Sebastian.

Meanwhile, in the present, Alec and the rest of the Tribe of Five (Aaron, Jake, Troy minus Honor), along with Jess, are trying to find clues that will explain the strange disappearance of their parents (Evie and Sebastian). As we learned in the first book, their parents were believed to have died in a plane crash in Columbia, but the plane and their bodies were never discovered. However, while on assignment in Columbia, Jess finds the plane with minimal damage, no bodies, and a message written in what could be blood to the Clairmont children. Thanks to her investigation, the search for their parents is back on!

All roads lead to Good Hope and the answers lie with the people of the sect. And those answers are mind-blowing! When is the next book coming out???
