Born in the blood of Sierra Leone's Civil War, enslaved, then sold to the US as an orphan, Base Branch operative Sloan Harris is emotionally dead and driven by vengeance. With no soul to give, her body becomes the bargaining chip to infiltrate a warlord's inner circle. The man called the Devil killed her family and helped destroy a region.
As son of the warlord, Baine Kendrick will happily use Sloan's body if it expedites his father's demise. Yet, he is wholly unprepared for the possessive and protective emotions she provokes. Maybe it's the flashes of memory...two forgotten children drawing in the dirt beneath the boabab tree...but he fears there is more at stake than his life.
In the Devil's den with Baine by her side, Sloan braves certain death and discovers a spirit for living.

Action and Suspense
Most definitely!! The story pulls you in right from the start. It's a thrilling, suspenseful read that is non-stop til the end. This was my first read/listen of Megan Mitcham. Enemy Mine focuses on two people who are on opposite sides - Sloan is an assassin for a secret government branch and Baine is the son of her enemy and one of her targets.
I must say, Megan picked the perfect narrator for this series. I've heard Jeffrey Kafer narrate for some other authors and I knew I had to add this to my collection. His inflections and nuances of the character's emotions are spot-on. He has the ability to draw you into the story - almost like you're right there with them.
Hard to say - I really liked Sloan and Baine. Neither has had an easy life - their struggles/situations have really made them who they are. Revenge can be sweet ....
Not providing any spoilers - when Sloan was in the village and school in Sierra Leone. It was very touching.
This is the first book in the Base Branch Series - Hopefully Jeffrey will narrate the entire series! If you purchase the Kindle version of Enemy Mine and Justice Mine (book 2), the audio can be added for $1.99.
I highly recommend this.....if you're on the fence give it a chance. You won't be disappointed.
I would recommend this book, it is gripping and exciting
I enjoyed this story because it kept you guessing about the outcome, was Baine as black as we thought or was he a good guy, or was he somewhere in between? Was Slone going to get her revenge and a HEA. Well I don't like to give spoilers, so I won't tell you. What I will say is buy this book and find out for yourself. I don't think you'll be disappointed.I really hope that we get to listen to more about the members of Base Branch.
