Publisher's Summary

As a guardian for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen: women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he's encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra: his one true mate.
For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he's behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other women. She's prepared to believe he's a ruthless killer, but when she presents herself as bait, she discovers that the truth is far more shocking. Taken to a strange, hazardous realm she never knew existed, Asia will face the ultimate choice-between abandoning the life she's always known and forsaking a passion as dangerous as it is powerful.

Difficult to finish. Jacquelyn Frank has created a great premise which is spoiled by a cold, selfish female lead whose only redeeming qualities remain physical strength and prowess, even at the conclusion. It is hard for this reader to accept Asia as the heroine in a romantic novel when every action, including the defense of her sister, is motivated by self-interest. And Chloe is the villainess? It's impossible to tell which character I disliked more.

Sadly, more promising characters, including Julian and Kenya with their strength of character and compassion, were not the focus of this first installment of a new series.

Hard to rate a novel where one element destroys all the positive aspects - great story, great narrator, great hero and interesting cast of minor characters. Jacquelyn Frank remains one of my favorite authors, but she missed the boat with this anti-heroine.

J.F. has such a brilliant imagination to create these levels of worlds alongside our own and, as far as I am concerned, she is my new number 1 author. She's a gifted artist who paints the scenes with her words for our imagination to take us on such a pleasurable journey of discovery into these new cultures that have awesome characters, mythical beasts, desperate desires, and they all have a diversity of laws and needs. Alongside all these things, there is also a great budding intense romance that has it's threats, villains and dangers too.

Yes, the heroine Asia, in totally dislikable, but she's come from a rough place but it's part of her job being a tough bounty hunter that she's seen the worst of life and - she's not happy because she's been kidnapped and taken to a totally different level of life where it's occupants are literally dying for her.

If you're like me - a Paranormal/Romance junkie, then you're gonna luv luv luv this new series and, if you haven't already downloaded her other books, then I suggest you'll luv those too. As for me, I'm off to listen to book 2 with a smile on my face knowing it's just gonna be wonderful.

Worth a credit? I've already spent 14 credits on her books and don't regret any - so for me, it's a YES they've definitely been worth it and I hope Audible, and J.F., keep them coming.
