With assassination contracts out on both of them, Caillen and Desideria must learn to fight together or die alone. She doesn't want anyone who isn't her equal. Up until this book, I w I loved this book. Do Syn and Nyk have that on their ships? Great story, full of passion, easy to get lost in. Luckily, Nero was one of Caillen's few friends and no matter what they might have paid him, Nero wouldn't bring him in. Caillen is a skilled fighter and when he learns of a deadly plot, nothing will stop him from uncovering the truth. With this book there was a lot going on around them so it focused on the plot as well as the romance making it fast paced and exciting.
Well so far I sound quite negative about this book, which isn't the case! If another installment of this series came available, it would jump to the top of my wish list. Will they overcome their differences and form a relationship based on a mutual sense of trust? They were normal, to me at least, and they were appropriately sappy when they needed to be. But while Hauk had no official training, he was as good as most of the medics Caillen had dealt with. I thought he was funny and cute, a risk-taker yet reserved, intelligent yet dumb, and I found the fact that he was not quick to love or trust saddeningly endearing. It's during a sort-of international summit that he meets Desideria, a princess from a race of warrior women.
Nykyrian made only a small appearance but I adore that man. In the universe where the League is law, most live in fear. It follows two people that have lost the little they thought they had only to realize they did not have what they thought. What surprised me was one part of the sex scene. I read the pages 3 times before saying fuck it but maybe that's what happened.
Caillen pulled out another blaster and opened both up all over the tracker. Something I tend to forget too until I see him in action. No offense, I'm over my stupid quota for the day and I really can't take another battle right now, so I'll just stand here bleeding until Hauk makes it to me. I enjoy reading about this world and the band of characters that keep getting more intriguing as the series progresses. I feel like I should be bothered by the fact that the same thing happens to the main characters in most of the books in the series: Man and woman either have someone after them or are framed with some form of illegal act and the rest of the story is spent trying to clear their name or names. When a warrior women steps into his life everything is undone. There was absolutely nothing about this book that I didn't like.
Save Save Save Save Save Save Read More Irreverent, sarcastic and fun, Caillen believes there are three kinds of people. Plain and simple, it was a chaotic war zone where the soldiers wandered around as if looking for someone to tell them what to do. I love futuristic sci fi and that is what this series is. The futuristic space jargon was a bit goofy to follow sometimes but it also adds to this world. No one's going to be hunting them for a while. Desideria was less than amused.
Right now, he didn't have time to listen to her bullshit. It was also what led to the rumor that the Sentella members were immortal and invincible. Only the Sentella and those approved by Nykyrian were allowed to know the tracing frequency. . For a handful of seconds, nothing showed up.
There are nuances and character references that I just did not get the first time through so it's still captivating. They constantly fight back and forth while thinking to themselves how captivated they are with the other, and talk over a campfire for what feels like 80 pages. It was great to see Syn, Sharhara, Nykyrian, Hauk and Darling again. Twenty-two years ago Cai Dagan's father died protecting him and his sisters. Then we limp to a bed where I kiss your boo-boos and you kiss mine.
I feel the same way about you. Moving through the Ichidaian universe like a wraith, his brushes with the law and death are legendary. It's got a long-lost prince with the charm and morals of Flynn Rider. He was told his father's enemies would hunt him down if they got the chance. I need you to take care of your sisters. Not for a long time as he sat there, staring at his father's lifeless body while the rain pelted it and made the ground run red from his blood. Welcome to a world where corrupt assassination politics dominate everyone.
But this story is set 2-3 years after the events in Born of Fire. The one thing though was the tenderness in his heart for a woman who put everything on hold to come to his aid. I wanted to throw her out an air lock myself. Moving through the Ichidaian universe like a wraith, his brushes with the law and death are legendary. It wasn't what he did and yet he wanted to tell her again and again.
