Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a deadly alien invasion, a band of survivors fights on....

Mackenna Carides is tough, strong, and excellent at her job as second-in-command of Squad Nine. She often works side-by-side with Hell Squad on some of the toughest missions to fight back against the alien raptors. Now, she's helping the survivors of Blue Mountain Base settle into their new home at the Enclave. And that means working with the Enclave's sexy civilian leader, Nikolai Ivanov, an artist who watches her with an intensity that is hard to ignore. A man she's seen in the field and who she knows is hiding a mysterious past.

Niko is dedicated to the people of the Enclave and to his art. Once, his life was all about death and destruction; now, it's about life and creation - even in the middle of an alien apocalypse. As he welcomes the Enclave's new members, there is one newcomer he wants to get closer to...but Mackenna is fighting their attraction. As something starts attacking their drones - vital technology for keeping them all safe - Niko realizes that in order to battle this new danger, he'll have to return to the darkness of his past...and risk Mackenna never looking at him the same way again.

On a dangerous mission to save their drones from the aliens, Niko will need all of his lethal skills and will wade into the fight with Mac by his side. They will be tested to the brink, where nothing is black or white, and they will have to expose themselves and trust each other to fight, live, and love.

Really Really Good

Niko book 9 of Hell Squad focuses on Mackenna Carides and Nikolai Ivanov. Niko hasn't been able to take his eyes off Mackenna since she held a gun barrel to his skull when she and rest of the Blue Mountain Survivors made it to the enclave. Mackenna doesn't believe Niko is just an artist and one of the people in charge of the enclave and she certainly doesn't believe in getting attached to anybody or anything. Niko wants Mackenna and will do anything to get her and he will have his work cut out for him. They end up running missions together and the sparks fly between them. This another book full of action, aliens and laugh out loud humour and some scorching hot interactions between the main two characters and I highly recommend it.

Great quick listen

Mackenna and Niko’s initial meeting didn’t go very well and was further complicated by Mackenna continuing to avoid him and rebuff his interest in her. The attraction between them sizzles and cannot be prolonged for long allowing both of them to fall head over heels for each other. Thank goodness they have well-meaning supportive friends. This was a great quick listen. The narrators continue to do a wonderful job.

Niko is definitely worth the listen!

Another fabulous adventure with Hell squad. Anna Hackett has a fantastic way of writing a story. It’s a well written and narrated suspenseful storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat.
The narrator’s do a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between the characters. They’re becoming one of my favorite narrator’s.

Liked it.

I liked it.
But I think it should have been called MAC, not NIKO.

Afterall, this is about Squads and SHE is the on on the squad - not Niko.

Great series

I just finished Niko and can't wait to listen to the next book. While the series is set in the future, I don't feel like everything is unbelievable which helps me to get in to the characters and story line. I love the interaction between the squads and can't wait to get to the Beserkers.

It took a bit to get used to the narrators but now that I'm used to them, I don't mind them. They have become part of the story. It would seem strange to have different narrators now.

Love that man!

Niko is the next in the Hell Squad series.

Hell squad and the Blue Mountain Base survivors have made their way to the Enclave, a haven where Niko is the leader as well as an artist. As the two groups find ways to coexist, Niko is distracted by Mackenna Careides, squad nine's second-in-command, ever since their volatile first meeting. Mac seems to be intrigued as well, but is reluctant to admit it.

Once something begins attacking the security drones, Nikolai and the rest of the teams know action must be taken - the type that could bring back a past from which Niko has spent a long time trying to distance himself. However, his skills are needed to stop this threat and he is unwilling to send Mac out to fight without all the protection he can muster. Even if doing so might damage any chance he has to win her heart.

Again, very well told, planned, and developed. I always want to know more because I'm fully invested in these characters.

This is a wonderful series for sci fi fans.

Each book focuses on a different couple while building the story of a world fighting a take over by a species who is so alien to humans there is no common ground. I love the characters and all of their stories are intertwined painting a large picture of people coming together despite their back stories.

Good story

BOOK REVIEW....
Good story. I really liked Niko and Mac. The only thing that would have made the story better would to have been given more background and character development. Love this series and highly recommend reading it.

NARRATOR REVIEW......
The narrator did a great job with bringing the characters to life.
