Publisher's Summary

Rescue might just be the death of her.

Far from home

Fiona Russell has been snatched from Earth, imprisoned, and used as slave labor, but nothing about her abduction makes sense. When she's rescued by the Grih, she realizes there's a much bigger game in play than she ever could have imagined, and she's right in the middle of it.

Far from safe

Battleship captain Hal Vakeri is chasing down pirates when he stumbles across a woman abducted from Earth. She's the second one the Grih have found in two months, and her presence is potentially explosive in the Grih's ongoing negotiations with their enemies, the Tecran. The Tecran and the Grih are on the cusp of war, and Fiona might just tip the balance.

Far from done

Fiona has had to bide her time while she's been a prisoner, pretending to be less than she is, but when the chance comes for her to forge her own destiny in the new world she's found herself in, she grabs it with both hands. After all, actions speak louder than words.

Not as good as the first in series

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Dark Horse, this one almost felt like the same story, different characters. Not particularly impressed.

Love, love, LOVE this series!

Fiona Russell was kidnapped from Earth by aliens, but now the aliens don't know what to do with her. She's trouble if she's found on their ship, so they drop her off on a cargo vessel where she is subsequently disguised and used as slave labor. Waiting for an opportunity to escape the abusive captain and his thugs, she's even willing to run off with yet another scary alien race, but they run off without her. What's a girl to do?

Fortunately, the next aliens she meets are . . . but that would be telling!

Don't miss this second book of the series, but make sure you start with the first!

Christina Delaine's performance is pitch perfect for this wonderful series!

This is a treasure!

Credit worthy? You bet!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (For anyone who loves great writing, great characters, sci fi/romance, and lots of action. So. Much. Fun!)

I see a pattern here...

There really is little wrong with this book. It was interesting and suspenseful, just like the first one. However, the main character's personality is identical to the 1st book, and when I listened to the start of the next one (thank you Audible for the previews you offer), it was again the same. The main characters all happen to find it a breeze to learn multiple alien languages, all clever in a crisis, willing to talk back to anyone, they're bitter in the same way,
etc. It's too bad because there's so much right with the stories and the whole concept. Perhaps the 3rd book is different, but I didn't hear more than the preview. Narration is good.

Why cant they all be this good?!?!?

I couldn’t get the book to whispersync to my kindle at all!! And I’ll be complaining about that later! They (Amazon) get u used to not having to turn your own pages and then take it away. Aside from that it was great!!! It completely overshadowed the difficulty I had. The book was good the voices ...simply bring out that quality! the narrator ... brings this to life !!! It’s hard to get good narrators for good sci-fi books. You’ve got narrating and then you have those narrators that your a crew member on the ship watching all this go down!! I’ll be checking into other books she’s narrated.

More action, adventure & romance in sci-fi space.

There were some moments in this story that was very similar to the first story, but by the second half that starts wane and the action, adventure really gains momentum. I like how there is an excerpt of the next book at the end of Dark Horse and Dark Deeds, it really makes you want to get the next book in the series immediately to find out what happens. To me this is an ingenious way to get the reader to by the next book, especially if they are on the cusp of deciding when to get it. I really liked the friendship that the AI and Fiona created and can't wait to find out what happens in the next book. Defiantly need to read this book in order to get the full effect. Narrator is good, and I would be happy to listen to her again anytime. With the Whispersync all three books are less than a credit and worth the price.

The first book was better.

Not impressed story was very similar to the first but a lot more boring. Spent 15 chapters just to get to the class 5 :(

Outstanding

Despite the heroines and their heroes being remarkably similar, the twists and variations keep these stores fascinating. The narration only makes everything better.

Greatly enjoy

I really enjoyed this book and the narration. The only bad thing i can say is i thought, as a experienced captain of a battle ship, hal didnt even seem bothered by his crew trying to get him in trouble with his superior. Then try to stop him having a relationship with a women to tje point they endanger her life and knowingly go against his orders the second hes not around. Kinda makes me question how much he was really into her and how good a captain he really is if he has so little control over his crew. The we care about you and think you're making a mistake just doesn't cut it in a military setting with the things that happened. I kept waiting for hal to deliver a real smack down. As either a military leader or as a friend to his friends who have gone way to far but it never happen. And i kept waiting for his second in command to confess he was in love with hal because that or jusy plain racism is the only explanation to his extrem reaction. It just made me question hal as a captain and his feelings towards Fiona.
