The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😤😡😊
The heroine: Tara – after losing their parents when they were in their teens, Tara took it upon herself to take care of her younger sister Astrid. She often had to do things in order to survive, but after winning a cargo ship in a high stakes card game, they had a place of their own and a way to make money. Since Astrid got taken captive by a Vandar warlord, Tara has been searching for her.
The Hero: Raas Kaalek – He is the commander of a Vandar Horde and brother to Raas Kratos from Possessed. He is a dominant alpha male with a hard body and a tail. He spends his time fighting against the Zagrath who are determined to take over every planet in the galaxy.
The Story: Raas Kaalek doesn’t like that his brother Raas Kratos took a human captive and let the rest of the crew on the cargo ship go. So he is determined to find the ship and make them pay for sending the Zagrath after Kratos. However, when he finds and boards the ship, he finds Tara alone and takes her captive.
Like Possessed, this book is told in dual points of view using duet narration which is the best way to go and my personal favorite. In duet narration, both narrators always read the same characters, similar to how it is done in full-cast or radio play productions. This was narrated by Marcio Catalano and Addison Barnes and both did a great job and have terrific voices which matched the characters well.
The story was very interesting, Tara and Kaalek end up crash landing on a planet that is being taken over by the Zagrath, so they have to hide among the people until Kaalek’s horde figures out where they are. They find that the people of the planet have a resistance, they can’t directly fight the Zagrath like the Vandar warlords, but they are doing what they can to undermine the Zagrath.
