Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the only way to survive is to let insanity take over....

Edge remembers little of his capture, but what has happened since is vivid in his memory. The Waxians want information about Trivator military and weapons systems. Edge can feel his mind splintering from the prolonged torture, but a soft voice in the darkness urges him to resist and fight back.

Lina Daniels is used to fighting fire with fire. She isn’t afraid of death, but she is terrified of being captured. As a resistance fighter on Earth, she knew the dangers. Those threats seem minuscule compared to those on the alien world she was taken to. Determined to return home, her plan is simple: Free the Trivator warrior she discovered and force him to take her and the other women that are with her back to Earth. But when the unpredictable Trivator becomes convinced that she is his Amate, that plan crumbles into chaos.

With the Waxian and Drethulan forces on their tail, it will take more than a few daring moves to escape to freedom. Can a tortured warrior and his rebellious rescuer escape the forces chasing them, or will the threat of losing the last thing holding him together hurl Edge over a dangerous mental precipice?

BOOK REVIEW
Entertaining as always by this author.
Believable characters and I found this group of women to be extremely resourceful and capable, my favourite type.
Our actual two main H’s Lina and Edge didn’t steal the show but were definitely an integral part of the story.
I did love how Edge behaved and reacted.
Loved that Lina pre-empted Edge with the claiming marks.
Whilst giving us some answers and more questions, we also get a change in the baddie line-up to keep it fresh.
I put off reading this book for a while as there is not yet a next book in this series.
I started listening to my audible version first whilst doing something else but then I sat and read this in one go.
Now I will have to wait patiently (or impatiently) for the next book.
The fact this author very cleverly navigates seamlessly between different but interconnected worlds she has written, always impresses me.

A Strong but Vulnerable Main Character.

I enjoyed this installment in the Alliance Series. Lina's story is one of loss, perseverance, anger, and Love! At some points in the story there seems to be something missing from it, but unfortunately I cannot put my finger on it (it might be the protagonist situation, the waxen leader is ug!).
The subplot of the story is of the missing women made into slaves from Earth, and how they have survived.

Over all I really enjoyed this Love Story!
And Another Wonderful Job by David Brenin.

Again, this narrator is absolutely great!

Again, this narrator is absolutely great!
Lena and five other women escaped from sex slave traffickers several years ago and are hiding out on a space station in the sewers. She hears a rumor about a Trivator warrior being held as a prisoner there too. Lena and the women do not know how to fly a spaceship so they decide to try to rescue the Trivator and have him fly them home.
Edge has been a prisoner for around 5 years. The waxians have begun filling him full of drugs that are slowly killing him in order to get information about the ruling family and his planet. The drugs seem to be making him insane because he wants to die but a goddess has decided to try to save him.
I love Lena's strong personality. There is tension between Lena and Edge that stems from the past but also the sexual tension because Lena is his Amatay.

Nice

I love this series. David Brennin makes SE Smith books come alive. I love how the author has managed to integrate parts from the lords of Kassis and some of the other books in this universe and tie them in on this. The characters are strong willed and seemed to mesh well. Can’t wait for the next books.

Edge

You have done it again Susan. I really can’t decide which Trivator Warrior I love the most. Can’t wait for Jag’s story. Please don’t let the bad people win

Just Love Edge!

This was the best book in the series so far in my opinion; lots of action, love, steamy sex, and hate. Story line was unpredictable. The introduction of another villain of the female persuasion. Narrator was excellent. Looking forward to listening to the next book if or when Audible offers it.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed this book. There wasn't anything that I didn't like. The narration was great. Fast moving and a great storyline. Liked that Lina helped Edge get through his issues. Strong woman and alien man who so totally fit together! Perfect ♥️😍! Sad that Jag's storyline isn't out. Maybe soon.
