Publisher's Summary

Eliana is hurtling through space on board a Lasaran battleship and getting to know not one but two alien races. It's the most exciting adventure of her long life...until the ship is unexpectedly attacked. Amid the chaos, she valiantly helps everyone she can before an explosion renders her unconscious. When Eliana awakens, she finds herself alone, floating in space, clad only in a spacesuit, with no ship in sight. 

Commander Dagon and the crew of the Segonian battleship Ranasura respond to a distress call from their Lasaran allies and join a massive Alliance-wide search-and-rescue mission. He quickly achieves communication with a lone Earthling female and races toward her. Every time they speak, he becomes more desperate to reach her before her oxygen supply runs out. Her strength, bravery, and humor entice him, even more so when she defies all odds and they meet in person.

As he and Eliana embark upon a quest to find her missing friends, a bond swiftly grows between them. But they are not the only ones searching for Earthling survivors. When Eliana herself becomes the hunted and their enemies begin to close in, can the two of them fight their way to victory?

Contains mature themes.

I had three problems with this book :
1. a boring love story - they had instant attraction that quickly grew into love, and neither of them ever got irritated or had any problem with the other, probably because
2. They were both so boringly perfect. Other than the woman’s dislike of needles, they had zero flaws or quirks. Naturally, they both excelled at everything they did. The doctor was the usual cliche - slightly grumpy, but with a soft heart and the Captain’s best friend. None of the other characters were given a personality.
3. The good aliens were basically just tall (6’6”) humans, with a couple of extra skills. Do I even have to mention that they are gorgeous? Whereas, the bad aliens were ugly and did not look human-like. *sigh*
Whilst there was some mild humour, it was not sufficient to coax a smile, let alone a laugh.
So... it was OK. Nothing special, but not terrible either. I won’t be looking for the rest of the series

Amazing story!!

I love everything Dianne Duvall writes. Everything!! And this series is no exception. Eliana and Dagon are wonderful together. They are so sweet to each other and I love the crew of the Ranasura. The only thing that I do t like is having to wait for the next book.

Im almost speechless

I am pleased to say that I am absolutely over the moon for this book. Dianne Duvall hit it out of the park, and Kristen Potter did a wonderful job as Narrator.

Some how I just knew this book was going to be a delight and it truly was. My only regret is that I finished it all in one day and now I have to wait forever until the next one comes out.

This book had me laughing, smiling like a dope and friggin crying. Not even good crying either.....I'm talking full on UGLY CRYING!.

This book can have all my stars. All. Of. Them. On a good note? I'll definitely read this one over and over again!

Excellent book in this new series

As a fan of the Immortal Guardian series this series teased me even more. As a teen I sat and watch Star Trek in black and white. Always wishing I could be in the stars traveling this is another wonderful dream I wish I could be involved in. The characters are so real and even tactical views are well thought out. So many books are suppose to be star related but have no idea. This book makes sense to a old trekking.

Good not Great

I waited anxiously for this book and purchased it the day it was released only to get bored and put it down multiple times. The story dragged in some places but still contained all the elements we have come to love from this author’s stories. However, I wasn’t blown away, I don’t want to re-read it and will not rush to buy the next in the series. It was a decent story...good but unfortunately not great.

Eliana and her Segonian

Eliana was first mentioned in the immortal guardian series and it is so nice to see her with her Segonian mate. I hope there are more books going to be issued in this series. It’s such an interesting concept to pull the guardians into deep space. This one has tension (the first part brought tears), then happiness and fun, then back to defense mode when the ship is attacked and lastly a rescue mission to retrieve Ava and meet yet another species in this new world. As always reading the book and listening to the story narrated by Nicole Poole is the perfect way to enjoy this story. Ms. Poole’s narration is perfection and as always only enhances this author’s story.

FABULOUS!!!

I have loved every book I've read of Dianne Duvall's and they just keep getting better. The Segonian ROCKS! I couldn't put it down. I reread the Immortal Guardians and the Lasaran in the days before this book became available so I could enjoy the full saga. Ms Potter is stellar as always. As far as I'm concerned she is the only voice for Duvall books. Keep up the good work.

It’s ok - not as gripping as immortal guardian series

I am worried that perhaps Disnne is running out of storyline for immortals whereby she’s creating a spin-off series. The original series is so good, it’s hard to enjoy this book when your used to gripping storylines. It’s a book you’d listen to once, but probably won’t ever again. I replay her other series on repeat. Kirsten Potter delivers another exceptional performance. Love her!!

Another amazing story!

Eliana and Dagon are wonderful characters and I loved their chemistry! I loved listening to their story unfolding! The narration by Kirsten Potter was as always superb! Dianne Duvall is a great author and I am amazed once again at her storytelling and world-building. She has a way of incorporating romance, action, comedy, and suspense into her writing. It makes for an amazing ride! I can't wait for the next book!

Amazing!

IG fans will not be disappointed here!
It was so cool to see a female IG find her HEA and Dianne made the transition from earth and vampires to deep space and aliens so seamless. I cannot wait too meet new characters and have new adventures!

A Stellar Adventure In This Sci-fi Romance Series.

I’m already a big fan of Dianne Duvall’s books but sci-fi is not my usual reading genre. However, I love Dianne’s writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots.

I was drawn into this story and remained hooked throughout.

We’d already met our leading lady, Eliana, in The Lasaran and Broken Dawn. The soft spot I had for her only grew as this story progressed. She was perfect. Eliana displayed all the traits that I need a protagonist to have: resilience, intelligence and gumption. Plus she had me cracking up with laughter on numerous occasions. Dagon was also a protagonist that I enjoyed getting to know. The strong, stoic commander of his Segonian ship who rarely smiled but lead his crew by example. I loved seeing Eliana peeling back his protective layers and getting under his skin.

Both main and supporting characters are written with a range of personalities without being stereotypical.

What makes characters believable, are their traits. Even when reading fantasy and science fiction, I need to recognise human psychologies to build that emotional connection. The Segonian introduces us to a whole host of other characters and alien races. However, be they, hero or villain, each one was written with credibility – Dianne made me never doubt they were real.

Kirsten Potter narrated this story as she has for Dianne’s other books.

Kirsten’s performance was excellent. She manages to convey just what the story needs, when it’s needed. Not only with the emotion, tension and performance she adds to the narrative, but the skill at which she uses her voice for the dialogue. Kirsten is one of the best narrators that I’ve heard and easily transports me into each scene.

There were quite a few jumps along the story timeline. However, I understand that they were necessary to “get everything in” and keep the pace engaging. I can’t wait to get back into space and join the Aldebarian Alliance now that the scene has been set.
