Publisher's Summary

Excerpt:
Suko slid down next to her, her eSMG in her hand. "Whatever we're doing, we better do it fast. Looks like they brought air support."
Sigrid didn't have to look. She could feel the low rumble of the heavy thrusters firing, growing louder. Still kilometers away, two air vehicles were moving quickly toward them. They were gunships, Thunderhawks, and they were moving fast, closing on their position. Quad cannon mounts extended from their sides, swinging into firing positions and taking aim.
They were outnumbered, and the situation was deteriorating quickly. These mercenaries might not be the enemy she was looking for, but they were still men, and they still hunted them.
"If you have a plan," Suko said, her eyes fixed on the incoming gunships, "now's the time to share it."
"Plan?" Sigrid unholstered her sidearms. "We kill them all."
Synopsis:
Alcyone is gone. The Independent stronghold on Scorpii is destroyed. Sigrid and her sisters have fled the Federation to make a new home on the remote world of Medea.
But with a price on her head the size of a planet, and pursued across the galaxy by the Council for Trade and Finance, Sigrid knows she and her sisters are not safe. As long as there are those who would seek to control them, hunt them, they will never be safe.
Unless Sigrid can stop them first.
But to stop them, Sigrid must first find them. But how? And where? Her only clue is a mysterious coded message. One that could serve as either warning or invitation. One that will lead Sigrid to a factory world at the very edge of Federation space, and to a deadly confrontation with her most dangerous enemy yet: the machines of Bellatrix.

Love it, the lead character is just so cool!!!!

What made the experience of listening to The Machines of Bellatrix the most enjoyable?

The strength of the writing. The lead character, whose name I can't spell, or even say correctly pronounce , is just awesome and again so very well written along with her action packed girlfriend.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Machines of Bellatrix?

At the end of story when she knowing or maybe not so knowingly gives up for her girlfriend's safety. And then turns around and fights her way out. That was just too cool, the action packet story with Superman like action given to the lead throughout the whole story was just way cool.


Which scene was your favorite?

The above mentioned, plus all the little tender moments with the lead and her girlfriend, the little you arn't going without me's. And the little lovely dovie moments, that never went any where but still where cute.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Too many to list here that made laugh out loud starting with the beginning and going through to the end that made me want to cry.


Any additional comments?

I know I gave a few spoilers but I really was trying not to give too many. This part two, of the series is just as good as part one if not better, with more action. I laughed hard, I wanted to cry at the ending (Don't worry just like Star Wars movies, the second ends kind of sad for one character, but in the 3rd in the beginning all is resolved. Just not the same way) So if you love this series get the second and the 3rd all at once. And Have a heck of good time listening. Trust me as very good as 2 is, 3 is even better, but you have to do part 2 first.
