    Galya Petrova travels to Ireland on a promise that she will work for a nice Russian family, teaching their children English. Instead, she is dragged into the world of modern slavery, sold to a Belfast brothel, and held there against her will. She escapes at a terrible cost - the slaying of one of her captors - and takes refuge with a man who offers his help. But her savior is not what he seems....

    I had the first book in this series and wasn't terribly impressed. While the characterization was excellent, and continued to be in this second title, I felt the constant focus on the assassin's brutality unnecessary.

    In this second go-round, however, the violence, while present, isn't the overwhelming element it was before. Here, the emphasis is on the characters, as it should be, and the pacing is much better for it. Overall, this was a much more engaging story, in my opinion, and makes it more likely I'll be acquiring more of Mr. Neville's work.

    Insectoid Dronons have slain the queen Semarritte, throwing into chaos the ten thousand worlds over which she reigned. Desperate to save mankind, Lord Veriasse, Semarritte's near-immortal consort, has created a new queen: Everynne, cloned from her dead mother. Born to rule, Everynne instead is on the run, often only one planet ahead of advancing forces of the invaders, who recognize that Everynne is a powerful rallying point for threatened humanity.

    Story

    I was enjoying this book by one of my favorite authors up to the point where he introduced the word "sidhe." The narrator, who otherwise does a reasonably good job with the nonstandard-English words mispronounced it, and continued to do so. Had the word been used infrequently, it wouldn't have been so annoying, but constantly hearing "sid-he" instead of "shee" just got to be too much. If you have Kindle, I highly recommend getting the ebook version instead.
