Last year when I found this series on Kindle, I was stunned by the beautiful writing, plotting and character development -- something I've never seen ..Show More »in a typical sci fi romance before. I could only hope that if the series was ever given the Audible treatment, that the author would choose the perfect narrator as well. And she did!
I LOVE sci fi romance novels, but too often the writing suffers from authors who lean a bit too heavily toward ever more bizarre alien sex scenes, and overly bit*chy dialogue for the women as a substitute for strength and/or wit. It gets old after a while, and I had given up ever finding a well written book in this sub genre, until I found this amazing series.
Michelle Diener is a wonderful author who can really write, and she has written three great books in this series. Each book contains a lovely romance, lots of action, and spectacular and well thought out science fiction -- it's a freakin miracle!
AND -- Christina Delaine is wonderful in this series, and performs it as well as any of the great narrators out there. I'll be looking forward to hearing more from her!
What a treasure!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (For anyone who loves sci fi romance, but also wants to read well written books!)
Note: There is no explicit sex in this series, and you won't miss it at all.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (For anyone who loves great writing, great characters, sci fi/romance, and lots of action. So. Much. Fun!)
I am coming back to rate this book after listening to the entire series. Change the characters names and write the same story, then you can sell three..Show More » books instead of one! The books are well written and the narration is good. However, I am disappointed that the story never evolved from the first book. It's the exact same thing with different names. I feel like I have been had buying the third book hoping the story would evolve, but it never did. My initial rating was 5 stars like most of the other reviews, but I feel like I need to warn people before they plunk down their money. Go read the reviews from the third book and you will see I'm not the only one!
