Chloe and Coran -Coran is twin brother to Cat from The Human and son to Cassie and Khazaar from The Captive. He half human/half Alien and is a spy and an elite soldier in the Black Squad. He is tasked with going to Dassuria and infiltrating the fighting ring owned by the barbaric Shor Dasquian, the dragon lord. Coran is like a sociopath, he doesn’t feel emotions, though had learned to fake his expressions by looking at others.
Chloe is a human female who, like the women in the previous books, has psychic abilities. She has an agreement with Dasquian, to manipulate the emotions of certain fighters so that Dasquian can bet on the sure winners and make bank, but like Coran, Chloe is really there for another purpose. She is trying to find and rescue her sister Isabelle who is Dasquian’s woman and is addicted to drugs.
When Chloe goes into the mind of Coran and tries to manipulate his thoughts, it doesn’t work and has walls in his mind that keep her from accessing his emotions. So Chloe gets in trouble with Dasquian after Coran wins the fight that she was supposed to sway him to lose. She knows that Dasquian will fire her and punish her sister for this.
This book was told in dual points of view via solo narration. I generally don’t pick books that have only solo narration, but this audiobook came with the first three books for one credit in audible. However, I really liked the fact that each book was narrated by a different narrator. D.C. Cole does a great job and has a pleasant voice. This was the first book in the series narrated by a man, which I like.
This book had a good story and adventure like the first four books, the only thing I disliked about this series was that they didn’t really have HEA’s. They weren’t bad endings, but things weren’t all roses and rainbows either. Though every once in a while I read a romance that doesn’t have a HEA and I am ok with it. I did like the fact that a lot of the questions remaining from previous books were answered in this one.
