Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the only way to survive is to let insanity take over....

Edge remembers little of his capture, but what has happened since is vivid in his memory. The Waxians want information about Trivator military and weapons systems. Edge can feel his mind splintering from the prolonged torture, but a soft voice in the darkness urges him to resist and fight back.

Lina Daniels is used to fighting fire with fire. She isn’t afraid of death, but she is terrified of being captured. As a resistance fighter on Earth, she knew the dangers. Those threats seem minuscule compared to those on the alien world she was taken to. Determined to return home, her plan is simple: Free the Trivator warrior she discovered and force him to take her and the other women that are with her back to Earth. But when the unpredictable Trivator becomes convinced that she is his Amate, that plan crumbles into chaos.

With the Waxian and Drethulan forces on their tail, it will take more than a few daring moves to escape to freedom. Can a tortured warrior and his rebellious rescuer escape the forces chasing them, or will the threat of losing the last thing holding him together hurl Edge over a dangerous mental precipice?

A Strong but Vulnerable Main Character.

I enjoyed this installment in the Alliance Series. Lina's story is one of loss, perseverance, anger, and Love! At some points in the story there seems to be something missing from it, but unfortunately I cannot put my finger on it (it might be the protagonist situation, the waxen leader is ug!).
The subplot of the story is of the missing women made into slaves from Earth, and how they have survived.

Over all I really enjoyed this Love Story!
And Another Wonderful Job by David Brenin.

Nice

I love this series. David Brennin makes SE Smith books come alive. I love how the author has managed to integrate parts from the lords of Kassis and some of the other books in this universe and tie them in on this. The characters are strong willed and seemed to mesh well. Can’t wait for the next books.

Excellent!

This is Edge's story of capture, unrelenting torture. How Lena rescued him, and their eventual escape! Good character development and storyline!

Can't Wait!

I have enjoyed this series as much as all the others I have listened to, by S.E.Smith, VERY much.. I can't wait for the next edition, so in the meantime I think I will check on The Lords of Kassis.

Smith and Brenin a good combination

It felt like I waited forever for this next installment in the The Alliance. SE Smith has written another good story Although some of her characters may have similarities with heroes and heroines from past books, Smith is able to make Edge and Lina individuals in their own right. The story was not as fast passed as some of the others but once it got going, it went fast. I must comment on the insta-love which at times is annoying. Lina went from 0 to 10 in about the same amount of pages although there was some angst it happened pretty fast. Overall, I think it is a good addition to the series and I did not mind that it ended with a lead in to the next book.

David Brennan is the narrator as he is for all the SE Smith books I have read and I always enjoy listening to him. He does all the voices and does them in such a way you are able to distinguish who is speaking without being told.

Overall I enjoyed this audible book.

Are you digging Alliance books?

Another solid Smith book in her Alliance series. Edge is alive and being tortured and held prisoner in a space station deep in Waxian territory. Lina and her fellow band of Human women escaped enslavement, but are trapped on that same space station. They help Edge escape, hoping he can pilot the ship they’ve appropriated so they can get back home. Only thing- Lina has bad memories associated with seeing Edge back on Earth; and he can’t just detox his interrogation drugs.
If you’re a Smith fan, you’ll enjoy references to Kassis and Elpidios, the crystal ship, high power energy, and cloaking technology.
Big hints at the end that there were sparks flying between Lina’s fellow female escapees and Edge’s fellow Trivators. Amates everywhere. More Alliance books to look forward to!
Brenin is, of course, a solid narrator.
