Publisher's Summary

Riana's terrified of these fierce Kordolians. They fight like demons and possess strange alien technology that makes them damn hard to kill.

After her nerve-wracking experience on the superfreighter Hendrix II, she wants nothing to do with them. All she wants to do is live a peaceful Kordolian-free life back on Earth. Too bad the Board of Corrections is on her case over past misdemeanors. Too bad someone's trying to kill her. She has no idea why. Too bad the only one who can keep her safe is a scary-hot, silent alien with coldfire eyes and a very sharp sword. But hey, at least she doesn't have to deal with flesh-eating insectoid monsters anymore.

The only monster she has to deal with now is a silver-skinned one named Kail. And he's more than a match for her attackers. That's reassuring...right?

Contains mature themes.

Reanna and Kale.

A good book, I just don’t understand why the series is all out of order, I don’t like it, my OCD keeps kicking in. I believe it is intentional because that is how they are in order on the authors page, but it drives me crazy. I hope to see more of the Kordolian soldier’s getting a story. I recommend reading Michelle Diener Class 5 series if you have made it this far in the series. It too is an alien romance. Narrator is good, wish they had male reader for all the stories. I would have liked to have them both for the whole series.

Great Sci-Fi romance!

I love these audiobooks by Anna Carven! This story is about a one time hacker who ended up on the now destroyed Fortuna Tau station as part of restitution for her hacking crimes. Now the Federation says that just because she didn’t finish a few hours of her sentence, (because they had to abandon the space station) she has to be under micro surveillance for another year! Disgruntled, she’s asked by her friend Erin, who has a Cordolian mate to help figure it who sabotaged Fortuna Tau. Enter a big tough Cordolian bodyguard who is supposed to protect her while she does the job. There is a lot of action and she’s purposefully given a serious infection by the people trying to kill her and he saves her life and grows to care for her. She’s smitten with the big silver alien too. Can they manage to finish the job and stay alive, while staying under the Federation radar? Great narration.

You can probably skip this one

I wanted to like this one - but there was just so much that was just Too Stupid To Live!
The characters had So Much potential- Argh! His notable silence;) She’s such a talented hacker but has no cynicism or paranoia that red flags the probation escalation? He lets the bounty hunters take her without fighting but destroys the station fighting? They just walk into the Boardroom with no plan? I could scream with frustration. And this story actually takes place before Infinity’s Embrace because they’re on Silence with the other couples.
While I’m witching: what’s with Carven making Kordolians so lethal, their human women so strong willed, but then have her say “oh, we don’t want to hurt the bad guy or make him accountable” after they’ve almost killed the woman?!?!?! Gah!
Can you say major disconnect? I refuse to bang my head against the wall for this kind of nonsense.
Love the series but can’t recommend this book. It’s just a stepping stone to Brilliant Starlight. You can probably skip this book without losing any development of the overall story arc. This has now become my least favorite book in the series, with Forged in Shadow in second place for that title. Such creativity, but wasted potential! There’s at least 4 books in this series that I Really like: Dark Planet Warriors; Brilliant Starlight; Out of Darkness; & Infinity’s Embrace. I would love to have future cameos or short stories that give us updates on characters.
Macie does a decent job with the narration.

???

Well. That was a long circuitous path to nowhere. I can't say the ending made a lick of sense. And I can't say that these two even liked each other very much. Yes, eventually there was sex and sexual chemistry but none of the certainty or elemental fire that was present in the other books. Why did Riana jump? Why did Kail let her compromise his instinct to kill? What did they gain in the end? Nothing that they couldn't have achieved by working with a savvy investigative journalist, then calling a press conference from the comfort of home (but that was a solution in book 4 and the thrust of book 2). The denouement or conclusion lacked cohesion. Obviously I won't tell you not to read, but this was a hot mess.

Unrealistic "pacifist" mars this story

Basically the story is OK. Where it gets bogged down and downright stupid is with the so called unrealistic "pacifist" views of the main heroine. I am not sure why this author gets off on making the women, ( those who are victims in her stories,) always plead for their rescuers to "not hurt the bad guy." Let's see, in this story, Riana is poisoned, beaten, has a bounty on her head, shot at, chased, tagged, choked, tortured and ...did I miss anything? And then worries her Kodolian guy might hurt the bad guys? When you read the story it's easy to skim over paragraph after paragraph of angst and drama within the main character and her soul searching internal battle. But with an audio version, you have to slog through it, all while gritting your teeth!
I've gotten several audios from the Dark Planet series, all read by Jillian Macie. I don't think she is aware that she makes the main women characters sound a little bit snarky. Maybe it's the slow deliberate way she reads but after awhile it can get on your nerves. I honestly prefer the male reader in the Mercenary series! JF Harding.
The series as a whole is good.

Heroine is a flop

The only good thing about Riana is the Kordolian at her side. She is the worse of all the mates. She has no spine unless Kail is pushing her and throughout the book she makes the stupidest mistakes and has to be saved by Kail or others. The series really should have found a better hacker heroine. Quite frankly it's an insult to female hackers everywhere to make one up that is so weak and clumsy.

Whining Heroine is TSTL

The ONLY reason I finished this was to find out what happened. The heroine whines or is scared through out. One sentence she loves the hero and the next terrified and questioning his love. I tell you it was painful! The hero was the only person who wanted her alive! She’s more afraid of him than the assassin after her.
