Publisher's Summary

The war everyone thought was over is just beginning.

Kira Forrest is a survivor. She's risen above the pain of her beginnings to become a war hero only to leave it all behind in the pursuit of a simple life. Now a salvager, she makes a living sifting through the wreckage of dead alien ships from a war that nearly brought humanity to its knees.

After her ship takes damage, she's forced to re-route to a space station where her past and present collide with dangerous consequences.

Kira's existence holds the key to a faltering peace treaty with the Tuann - a technologically advanced alien race who dislikes and distrusts all humans. Winning her freedom should be easy, but a powerful and relentless Tuann warrior stands in her way. Deceiving him seems impossible, especially when he strays dangerously close to secrets she struggles to hide.

Can Kira reconcile the pain of her past with the possibilities of her future? The fate of two races depends on her success.

enjoyable but not a wow for me

first listen to this author and after finishing a novel by Michelle denier I must say I can't decide between Dark Horse or thus book. both are good and really well written. this novel had a few flaws that had me frowning. for instance an advanced race but no communication devices?
hmmmm. not to add spoilers so I'll say little, although I presumed that this might have been a key move in the authors writing.
it definately was different in regards to plot, and like Michelle denier there is no romance, (unless a kiss or 2 is romance to you)
too me, because of this I felt a lack of connection between the 2 lead roles. she is one strong badass and once your out there like that it's hard to reel her in, but when i read the dust covers of the next 2 books, it gave me an understanding of why Ms White wrote her character in that vein.
NOW****
.......possible spoiler alert********
*******
********
*******
what surprised me was no heads up with the ending on ANY reviews.
what has me annoyed is that this is a long book and if you want to know more then the next one is 16 hours and although everything interests me and I'd like to know more, I can't do it....reason...1. little to no romance. 2.
the narrator. Natasha is a first for me as well and I absolutely love her voice and inflections however her male heroes voice makes me cringe. he sounds like a baddie and I just couldn't connect. not game to try my luck with book 2.
so, all in all, great plot, decent narrator, unexpected ending, awesome journey ....

Nice reorganisation of period cultures.

An interesting meld of feudal Japan and bohemian cultures. Well worth the read. Looking forward to the next instalment of the story.

Great start to a new series

TA White gives us another amazing heroine, full of humour, faults and strengths. I can’t get enough of this author.
The narrator seems to be getting a bagging from other reviewers, but I found her performance enjoyable. Her pacing, emotions and range of voices were excellent. Graydon was vocalised a bit too growly, but everyone else’s characterisation was great.
