The New Lyons Sequence #2
SINdicate by J.T.
Nicholas is a highly recommended second book in the New Lyons Sequence.
definitely the second book in the series and is a continuation of the story
started in the first book. Sometimes it doesn't matter if you read a series out
of order or start in the middle. With the first two books of the New Lyons
books, reading them in order matters a great deal.
truth was revealed, Walton Biogenics claimed the Synths were manufactured to
look human, but were "artificial" humans. Jason Campbell, former New

and the ending was rather abrupt. Early information had this second in the
series as being almost twice as long as this, which makes me wonder if the
series is being spread out over even more books or if it was edited down to
this much shorter length. I have to admit that I am tiring of stories being
spread out over several books for the sole purpose of creating a series. Again,
there is something to be said in getting the whole story or a larger chunk of
