Abby and Ynyr had secretly met previously in book 2 unaware of who they were each talking to between the shrubs but now that Abby has found out who the mystery man is she doesn't waste any time in claiming the kind Tornian who gave her a shoulder to cry on and wise words when she least expected it but needed it most. So, as King Grimm had decreed that it is to be the Earth women who are the ones to pick and choose their mates, in front of everyone Abby nervously walks up to her chosen Warrior. And Ynyr, being the third son of a disrespected family, was blown away and in awe at the courage and beauty of Abby, this Earth woman who wanted him, because he never thought he stood a chance at being chosen..... even though he'd just been made a Lord.
However, the couple's trust, bond and love will be tested over and over again and their tempers will flare.... by the culture differences, by other's jealousies and by the daunting task of trying to put right the House of Bertos on a foreign Planet where the tension runs high because they don't know friend from enemy and not everyone is happy with the new Lord.... or his Lady. But Ynyr had been made Lord and given this task by King Grimm and he is going to try and, for his Abby, failure just isn't an option..... he did however come very very close not only to failing but also to losing Abby.
Another really enjoyable Sci-Fi romance where the Hero and Heroine were loving, tender, understanding and passionate towards each other - well for most of the time anyway because they encountered challenges and enemies along the way as well as an evil undiscovered puppet master who whispered poisonous thoughts into their minds. Tempers rise, blood will be spilled, a head will roll, angst and drama is never far away, Gods will interfere and the sex will be good but there's also suspense, surprises and a twist too when they discover they were never quite alone.
Worth a credit? A good story, likeable characters, a bit of sex, romance and danger made this listen entertaining. But what made it truly creditworthy was the dual narration where the male narrator gives voices to the male characters and the female narrator gives voices to the female characters and, by sticking to their own genders, this makes for a much smoother, easier to follow and more pleasant a listen. There was also the occasional sound effects which was fun.

Thanks to kindle this book still rates 5 stars. Because I could read the story and hear Ynyr's name pronounced as it was in the first two books. The sound effects also saved me from returning it! Love this series and do see all kinds of possibilities for many more books. The way these women worm their way around these warriors is just plain fun. Abby starts out extremely shy and scared silly in the first books. But really comes out of her shell in this one. M.K. Eidem is right at the top of my Author list because of this series. I would respectfully suggest that narrator's listen to previous books with odd names before attempting to narrate a story! Just finished Oryon and can hardly wait to get it from audible. The sound effects really makes the stories come alive in the audio version!!

I really love this story and became totally lost in it, I can't wait to hear the next one in the story and look forward to the next book also. These are well written books and a real pleasure to listen to.

Would you try another book written by M.K. Eidem or narrated by Ian Gordon and Jennifer Gill ?
M. K. Eidem yes - narrators No!
Would you be willing to try another one of Ian Gordon and Jennifer Gill ’s performances?
No, I had enjoyed this series so far, (a bit of a guilty pleasure), sadly this book disappointed, not the storey line, simply because they replaced the original narrators, (I hate when they do that mid series). I felt neither of the new narrators were great, they didn’t seem to use any inflection in their voices to carry you along with the storey, both were quite flat.
Any additional comments?
One thing which was most annoying, was the use of Ynyr’s name, he was introduced in the second book, (Wray), as, ‘Ynear’, which, if you look at the spelling, makes perfect sense. In this book, the narrators have changed his name to ‘Yaynar’, adding two A’s, which are not there, you’d think someone would be monitoring for continuity errors, no?
Sadly, the Tornians storey will have to go on without me as the next book has the same narrators.
