Publisher's Summary

Rescued from her alien captors, the only person who makes her feel safe is a cold, emotionless cyborg.

Abducted from her exploration ship, paramedic Sage McAlister has spent months locked in cells and labs belonging to the Edull. Rescued by the cool, powerful cyborgs of the House of Rone, she finds herself among fellow human survivors on the desert world of Carthago. But despite being free, Sage feels cold inside and is struggling to cope. The only person she feels safe with - who she doesn’t feel the need to pretend with - is a deadly cyborg who feels nothing.

Forced into a military cyborg program as a teen, all Acton Vonn remembers of his past are violent missions and the cybernetic enhancements forced on him before he broke free. His emotions have been dampened to nothing for decades and he’s fine with that. It makes him an efficient member of the House of Rone. Yet the more time he spends with the copper-haired woman he helped rescue from the Edull, the more unfamiliar, strange, and perplexing things he starts to feel.

When a tip reveals that more humans are being held captive at a mysterious desert lake, Sage will stop at nothing to help rescue her crewmates. As she is drawn closer to Acton, she worries about risking her heart. Being with Sage breaks down barriers inside Acton and he struggles with the emotions he doesn’t want to feel. But deep in Carthago’s dangerous deserts, with the Edull hunting them, Sage and Acton will have to risk it all: their lives, their hearts, their souls.

***Unstopable***

Another action packed story from the queen of thrills Anna Hackett. Wow I feel breathless listening to Acton and Sage story. Omg how much action and suspense can you crammed in one book whew that's a lot I say lol. It's so good and worth staying late at night. The narrative as always is brilliant with Vivienne Leheny as the narrator. Too good x

Love it

Love the story and love the narrator. Super fast listen. Vivienne Leheny does an awesome job on each of the characters voices so there was no confusing parts about who was talking.

House of Rone #3

Centurion is a definite page turner that tugs at the reader's imagination and heart. The action keeps the pages turning, while Ms. Hackett builds her world of Carthago, giving it depth and color. Her chacracters are solid and give the reader reason to root for them. A wonderful read. Enjoy!

Can't wait for more!

This story is standalone capable, but continues a wonderful storyline and arc that you should read first. Great pacing, story, and character development. I really hate the bad guys, so...good work!

Good but ....

BOOK REVIEW....... The book is good but I'm just not as into this series as strongly as I am with all Ms. Hackett's other series. So far while good and interesting the characters seem to lack the depth I'm used to reading in her characters from other series. NARRATOR REVIEW......... Narrator did a great job with the voices again L

Sci-Fi Goodness with Cyborgs and Romance

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really enjoyed this story considering I'm not usually into reading about Cyborgs!! Anna really brought out Sage's experiences and wrote them beautifully and heartfelt in the book. I love how it was Acton who paired up with Sage, and their chemistry worked really well together. Narrator Vivienne Leheny brought out the emotions and life to these characters. Another Action filled book of awesomeness. Always looking forward to more by this Author & Narrator Team.

Enjoyable when I need a change of book...😀

I do like these fantasy books even if I think I could only listen to them rather then read them lol..... I like most of Anna Hackett books in General even though they do come quite predictable..
