I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
In this book we meet Mara James and Nadar Brenger. When Mara is a fighter pilot that is part of a crew that was not allowed to help in the war against the Brion warlord. But when they land on the planet now named Gaiya she just knows that she is going to have problems. That can not be more true when she is captured by the warloard of the Corgans. The first time Mara hears his name she knows she is in trouble. Nadar isn't know for being a kind or caring guy, he is more the death and destruction, but there is just something that pull her to him. Can two people with such different views really make it work or is this just a passing thing?
Nadar knows the instant he sees the ships that the Galatic Union is trying to take over their sacride planet. This is a holy planet to the Corgans and they won't give it up without a fight. So when Nadar sees the ship trying to land on his planet he knows what he has to do kill them all and send a message back to the Union stay away or else. This is not a fight he is willing to loose. That is until he sees Mara. There is something about her that leads him to protect instead of kill. That finds her defiance of him as something to be treasured rather than destroyed.But what happens when outside forces threaten this thing happening to them? Will it be over before it even really begins.
I am a huge fan of this author she puts books out that have you on the edge of your seat from the first word to the very end. This book is no different. This book had me shutting down the ringer on my phone, no tv and making sure the door was locked because no one was prying me from this book. This story between these two seems like it is doomed from the get go but there is something about their story that anyone can relate to. There is so much I want to tell you about this book but I don't want to ruin any of the surprises in it. I will say that you will not be disappointed with this book. It can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading the others to understand some of the vage references that are used in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
