World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: ☺️😮😍
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The Hero: Anders – Third son of the king, the middle child. Anders tends to fall in love with unavailable females. He sees this as safe, since he is afraid of bond rejection syndrome, where two people are bonded but not in love with each other. He recently talked his father into buying a bunch of new fighter ships to protect their starship and all the people on it. Though at the launch party he got drunk and decided to fly one and crashed it. He knew he couldn’t mess up again and needed to clean up his act.
The heroine: Gwen – She was a pilot and she came along with the Auxem as part of the workforce. She was newly married and her husband was a flight mechanic. She was partnered with Anders because two pilots were needed to fly a scout ship and Anders was banned from flying the fighters.
The Story: Anders was attracted to Gwen. Just one more example of his feelings for unavailable women. He was used to her always talking about her husband, but lately she hadn’t mentioned him at all and there was a sadness in her eyes that hadn’t been there before. He finds out that her husband left her for another woman and they are now divorced.
This book was narrated by Connor Brown and Piper Fairweather who are the best narrators in this series so far. Piper has a soft but sort of deep, yet feminine voice which is pleasant to listen to. Though her voice doesn’t change much when she is doing a male voice. Connor has an emotive voice and is also very enjoyable to listen to.
I like that Anders and Gwen are best friends and co-workers before anything happens. There was also a very good storyline about space pirates taking over their ship. Though there were still a few plot holes and these two both wavered too long about how they felt for each other, but overall this was a pretty good book. Though I am getting a bit tired of the wings being secret and the fact that they are so painful, I am hoping someone can fix that issue in the next book.
