New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author of Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world.

Gracie Jones was little more than a child when the Earth was invaded by an alien species. Escaping into the subway tunnels of New York City, she hid in fear of being captured. Discovered by four men who became her protectors, she fought alongside them and they became known as the Freedom Five. At seventeen, she made a decision that turned the tide on the war between Earth and the Alluthans but in exchange she gave up all that she knew.

Kordon Jefe is a Zion Warrior and commanding officer in charge of the Confederation of Planets military. When an unknown species begins attacking some of their outer settlements, he is assigned to discover who they are and stop them…at any cost.

Gracie unknowingly finds herself stranded millions of light years and hundreds of years in the future in a distant galaxy on an undeveloped moon. When an old enemy threatens once more, she does not hesitant to use her knowledge to try to stop them once again. Only this time, it is not just Earth she will be saving but the Confederation itself.

When their two worlds are thrown together, Kordon is unsure what to do with the strange, delicate creature that fights and behaves unlike anything he has ever encountered before. One thing he does know, he plans to keep her.

I was glued to my kindle from the start. Oh my gerd! If you like space action, with rebels fighting the intruding aliens mixed with a lot of hot bow chicka wow wow, you are gonna love this one. For the first part of the book I got a dejavu feeling. I could have sworn I have read something so similar, but the farther into the story line I got that feeling went out the window. I think this story would have been a solid five star knockout if there was more back information and a bit more details into the story line. The characters were developed well enough, but I would have liked more development in certain areas, like the sub characters/aliens. I was hoping to perhaps have a bird’s eye view of what happened earthside while she was on her adventure to the mothership. We did learn what did happen eventually through a different sub character. The plot developed to nail biting near the end of the book. I am hooked I think, I will be following up with book two now. Run, don’t walk, to grab your copy now.
