Publisher's Summary

In the future: A united Earth, to deal with the problem of population control, divides its population into classes of citizen and non-gratis.

To be born a non-gratis means a life of little freedoms and the constant possibility of being assigned to work on a colony. Lacking citizenship, every aspect of their life is controlled from where they live down to marriage and childbearing regulations. The only possible escape from life as a non-gratis is to qualify for one of the limited slots available for entrance into the military. For most, however, it is the only life that they will ever know.

Charlie has prepared her whole life for the possibility that she could be shipped off to work in a colony, so when she is selected for part of the initialization phase colony laborers, she is determined to make the best out of a new life on a very different and hostile planet. Assigned as a labor assistant in the exploratory lab seems like a step up in the right direction for her. Caring for the wildlife specimens is far preferable to working as a laborer, preparing the first of the fields, or in any of the common industries.

That is, until a vaguely humanoid specimen is captured and brought in. The promise of death that clings to it is fulfilled when it breaks out from containment and she finds herself hostage to a being with a thirst for vengeance. Far away from the colony, Charlie is forced to carve out a new life for herself in a dangerous world, but will she be able to safeguard her heart from the biggest threat of them all: a male who is determined to claim all of her.

This book contains some scenes of graphic violence and sex.

Great Listen!

I listened to this book on Audible and really loved it. The narrator was great and the content kept me wanting to listen. I did enjoy how the alien was very "alien" in that his junk was a bit different and he had more arms. The plot was fun and slightly different than other books I've read. There were some sections that were a bit faster than others, but I don't think it bothered me. I do think the sexy scenes could have been a bit longer and maybe a little more lead up until the first one. Overall, very happy and excited to read/listen to more!

not my favorite SJ

I purchased this book based o. the author as I like the other works. however this one wasn't what I was expecting. the female was a bit more winey and the good stuff didn't happen until far into the story. The narration was good, but I wasn't sure at first. The author didn't change her voice much for each character, but I'd rather that than a horrible attempt .

Delightfully Entertaining!

This is a great story. Once again SJ Sanders has woven a wonderful escape. Tess Irondale magnificently brought life to the characters by seamlessly going from one character to the next. The narrator was wonderful and was dedicated to artfully acting out the wonderful scenes written by Sanders. I’ve read many books and purchased multiple audiobooks by SJ Sanders and I’ve enjoyed them all. I would definitely recommend this audiobook!

Interesting new take with a centaur like Alien

I really enjoyed this one, a strong female lead who isn’t an idiot or born into a position of power. She is soft hearted and strong willed.

GREAT BOOK AND LISTEN

This book took me on an adventure away from my everyday life and into another reality where Charlie lived.

Charlie who had no freedoms but wanted a better life and the way for her to get and to earn her freedom wasn’t only through working hard at jobs others chose for her and living wherever they transported her to, it was more difficult than that. But for Charlie it was worth the possibilities that could be for her future freedoms. Charlie was shipped to another colony on a hostile planet and was put in charge of cleaning, feeding and caring for the captive, strange, odd and sometime scary wildlife specimens. . . where her life took an unexpected turn - learning underlining secrets and deception.

Sit back and enjoy the ride . . . be taken away from your everyday world and transported to another one.

Yes, worth the credit and time

Pleasantly surprised

I started this book with low expectations and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It's not as steamy as the books I normally go for, I would rate 3.5 on the spice scale. I do think it would've been better with dual narration but Tess Irondale did an amazing job overall.
