Publisher's Summary

In 17-year-old Dakota Kekoa's line of work, a job can go bad in a split second.
And when a job goes bad, people die.
Suspended from working as a tax collector in her draconic family's protection racket, Dakota is assigned a secret mission from her grandfather. A foreign queen has offered a grave insult to Dakota's grandfather by running a vampire dinner cruise off the coast of the Mabiian Islands, and his retribution must be swift.
Yet, when Dakota infiltrates the ship Crimson Sunset, nothing is at it seems. In a split second, not only is Dakota in deathly peril, all of New Anglo is on the road to war.

Exciting & suspenseful, great sequel to Henchgirl

This exciting sequel to Henchgirl kept me captivated from start to finish. Dakota Kekoa's life is complex; her contract with Wyvern Rex not only continues to cause restrictions and complications in her life but it also tears at her heart and puts her at risk. She wants her independence but at the same time she remains inexplicably drawn to Wyvern. Her caring nature, strength and the conflicts she feels comes through well in this audiobook, especially after a job she is on for her grandfather goes awry, leaving her loved ones lives hanging in the balance and bringing Dracon/vampire, Harrison, into the mix. The narrator did a great job of giving individual voices to the characters. Drawing us in with her voice and intonation and helping you feel the fear, love, humour, conflict and anxiety occurring. The world this story is set in, and the unusual supernatural aspects the characters possess, continue to grow in depth and intricacy, making it even more captivating and unique than the first book. I loved the development of the characters, from the way Wyvern tries to meet Dekota's conditions even though it is against his draconian upbringing, to Billy's easygoing humour and Lorelei's difficulties with her aspect; you can not help but become attached to all the characters. This well written story is laced with action, magic, duplicity, suspense and romance. It quickly draws you in and leads you on a fast paced, exhilarating adventure that, at its end, leaves you eager to see what direction Dakota's life will take. This story has fabulous writing, realistic dialogue and absolutely intriguing and engaging characters. I received this audiobook from the author at no cost and under no obligation.

Journey Continued

I got this book via audiobook boom. Book 2 continued Dakota's journey and enhanced it. The author immersed me into the story and the narrator brought it to life. This is also another great sequel and did not rehash so much of book 1. Dakota's character continues to grow stronger.
