Samantha steps up into the role of leader
Sloan has crafted an entertaining and gripping world, and populated it with fascinating characters and deadly villains to keep his heroes occupied. Samantha really comes into her own in this book, and is doing her best to lead her team to victory, but the odds are not in their favor. The question becomes not if they can succeed, but if they can survive. Space pirates and mind controlling aliens are nothing to sneeze at, and she has her hands full trying to keep everyone one alive.
First, I have to say that the cover is eye catching, and makes you wonder what the book is all about. Her biotech armor was certainly the way to go, it is flashy and gorgeous. Take away all the words and it would make one heck of a poster. I cannot say how much I appreciate that it isn't one of those computer morphed photos with a weird background. All I can say is that it makes me want to read the book, and so it does its job well.
Once more, Tess Irondale's narration is simply superb. She vocally embodies Sam, and her rendition of Dex is outstanding, and her portrayal of Ferder is perfection. She manages to aurally manipulate the characters in such slight ways that you may not catch all of her nuances. I put her right with Emily Beresford and Andrea Parsanau as a narrator. She is so excellent to listen to that you will be captivated by her voice.
The writing is the same, there is character growth, plot development, and a few twists and turns that will leave you out of breath. I often found myself wondering what was coming next, and was always happy with the way things unfolded (maybe not for the characters, but more for the story line). Sloan certainly knows how to write. I love the direction this series is taking and can't wait for the next book! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and honestly, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
