Number three in the science fiction adventure Orphan’s Legacy series, a saga of spy games and military action on an interplanetary scale. The balance point of interplanetary Cold War II between Earth and monolithic Yavet tips unexpectedly toward peace. Covert ops Captain Jazen Parker and his sharp-shooting lover and partner Kit Born slide from world-saving hazardous duty to escorting a telepathic alien monster home from Earth to mate. And the two of them are forced to consider a quiet domestic future together.
But when old enemies’ thirsts for power and revenge, Jazen’s problematic past, and his former girlfriend, upset Jazen and Kit’s personal balance point, the two cold warriors find their relationship, and their very survival, tested as never before.
Lost in space, and - from one another - they must each penetrate Yavet, the universe’s most insular and repressive world, then foil a plot that could turn Cold War II hot and nuclear - or die trying.

Robert Buettner is very knowledgeable on the military SciFi genre and able to keep the entire series entertaining. MacLeod Andrews's narration was obviously well rehearsed and came off professionally done. It's often hard to find an audiobook where the narrator can move between multiple male and female characters convincingly and he pulled it off splendidly.
The last book of the series, Balance Point, was a bit off from the other two but still well worth the time invested in it; along with tying up the loose ends left open from the first two books.
