I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
In this book we meet Captain Lana Cormac and General Corden. Lana is the captain of the Raptor which is more of a fact finding ship it also does extractions but has no real fire power on it. So when Lana is sent a report talking about the old legend for the Brion from the Galactic Union she had no idea how important this story would be to her own life. In this story there are tow men fighting for one woman one is fighting for the woman one is fighting for power. So when Lana meets two Brion generals she knows that this is going to mean more then she ever thought it would in her life. The sight of Worgen scares even her but to possibly save her ship and all of the people around her she knows she has to work fast to ensure the monster is focused sole on her. The question is can she survive this fight or will not only she die but all those she has sworn to protect?
Corden is jealous of the other generals and all of the amazing battles that they have gone into. It is part of wanting to be best fighter in galaxy or as they say it is the Brion way. However there is more to Corden then even most Brion know about. Corden is given a special mission senctioned by the Brion Elders that almost no one knows about. So when Corden hears that General Worgen is alive he knows that it is time for him to step up and step in. Corden's problem is that he is a person who observes and learns about other and finds the best way to defeat them, but Worgen is and older general who almost all thought was dead. So to learn about this general he has to find the old tellings' about him, and they are missing a lot of the information that he needs. So when Corden gets his first look at Worgen is also when he get his first look at Lana his gesha. Now it not only becomes a matter of stopping the monster but also protecting his gesha with his last breath. The thing is the more this goes on the more Corden wonders does he need to protect his gesha from himself or the monster?
This is an amazing story that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. You will find yourself getting upset with any distractions that come while trying to read this. It is an amazing story that will have you wanting a man that will fight and claim you for himself like these Brion men do. I think that the strength that you find in this female character will have you doing the victory dance. Lana is no shrinking violet where at times there would be many who would do that and be totally justified while doing it. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. This is one of those must read books. I would also recommend the rest of the books in this series though each can be read as a stand alone.
