Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a deadly alien invasion, a band of survivors fights on....

For Hawk pilot Finn Erickson, flying is in the blood. Since the aliens decimated the planet, he spends most of his time flying Hell Squad into combat. With communication to other survivor bases cut off, he has no idea if his family is still alive and feels their loss keenly. But helping to fight back sustains him, and his quadcopter is the only woman he needs. She doesn't argue with him...unlike a certain redhead who is one hell of a kisser.

Lia Murphy lost her mother and sister in the invasion. She vows never to get emotionally involved with anyone again, and as head of the drone team, she's always busy with work. But one cocky, arrogant pilot pushes all her buttons. When Finn issues a challenge - a fly-off in the flight simulator - she can't resist. But she's not sure if she can accept what he demands as his prize if he wins...her. In his bed for one night.

But as Finn and Lia's fiery attraction heats up, so does the battle with the aliens. The pair must work together to reestablish communications with other humans and discover what the aliens are hiding in a mysterious area to the north. In the process, they will face the most dangerous alien creature yet, and be tested to their very limits....

Still going strong

Each book is expanding the storyline; new, scary and exotic creatures appear and wreak havoc on the squad; the romance seems to follow a similar theme which is beginning to sound redundant. Narrators are excellent. The next book Devlin sounds interesting and must get to listening to it!

Finn

Lia and Finn have a lot in common with them both being pilots as well as the loss of family members. So, an inspiration to fight the aliens is born from all that they feel has been taken from them. Finn Issues a challenge, which I think was just an excuse for Lia to give into Finn, and they sleep together. After a scare they can’t stay away from each other and a love match happens. However, one thing about this series is that each additional story has a new alien creature that must be fought. The ingenuity and creativity in each story is fascinating and makes you wonder what could really happen if the future was plagued by aliens 👽!

Liked it

Love the overall story of the Gazita.
Each story is self contained but contributes to the overall story.

Technically this is a standalone, but you really can't get the most out of it unless you read all the books in order.

Finn and Leah

Finn and Leah have always butted heads, mainly due to Finn not recognizing drone pilots as 'real' pilots. After a harrowing excursion to vanquish the alien's drone killer, the heat of the moment results in a kiss... one that neither can really forget.

This story is about two people who are determined to safeguard their hearts against further heartache. Oh, and trying to figure out how to break through the alien jamming signals. No pressure.

Love reading more in the Hell Squad series

Caution: This series may be addictive.

The aliens are getting smarter and our heroes have to work harder.
Finn (Hell Squad, #10) focuses on our favorite Hawk pilot who is in deep trouble with the aliens developing increasingly nasty weapons and working to eliminate any advantages the humans might have. The action is fast and the sparks between Finn and Lia hotter than fire moving the overall story of the fight to save humanity along at a record pace.
With wonderful characters and a great story line, Ms Hackett continues to deliver a page burner that will keep you hooked till the end.

Good

BOOK REVIEW....
Another great story. Finn is such a great character. He's funny, strong, a bit arrogant and totally sexy hot. I'm so glad we get to read and enjoy his story. I love this series.

NARRATOR REVIEW......
The narrator did a great job with bringing the characters to life.

Flyboy

Hawk pilot Finn Erickson was born to fly. Since the aliens decimated the planet, he spends most of his time flying Hell Squad into combat. Fighting back against the aliens helps him with the grief of not knowing if his large family are all dead. He lost hope a long time ago and now flying is all that sustains him. His quadcopter is the only woman he needs. She doesn't argue with him...unlike a certain unforgettable redhead.

Head of the drone team Lia Murphy lost everyone she cared about in the invasion. She will never risk her heart again. And even if she were to consider a new relationship it would not be with a cocky, arrogant flyboy. Finn pushes all her buttons and when she spends a night with him after losing a challenge she wants to put it all behind her. Pity he doesn't feel the same and her dreams are all filled with him.

As the two work together on a plan to re-establish communication with other humans their attraction heats up but to complete the mission they will be tested to their very limits... To succeed they may have to sacrifice everything including their lives. Love may only be an illusion for these frenemies.

Anna has done it again. Finn and Lia are a force to be reckoned with and the story had be laughing and crying in equal measure. I am now halfway through my Hell Squad binge. Deep breath and onto the next one.....

A risque bet and a happily ever after await....

The Book

A risque bet leads from constant bickering to love and a happily ever after in this action packed sci-fi romance. Very steamy

Have you ever watched a movie where the building tension was so great that you were on the edge of your seat with your hands over your eyes, desperate to know if the good guys got away, but with your pulse hammering and your heart in your mouth, you just couldn't bring yourself to look? Well 'Finn', the tenth book in Anna Hackett's terrific, action packed sci-fi romance series is the book version of that film and I really didn't want to put it down. Don't worry if you haven't read the previous books, there's enough background in this one that you won't feel that you've missed too much.

It's about two years since the alien Gizzida invaded Earth and the refugees from Blue Mountain Base have been at The Enclave, the revamped former coal mine south of Sydney for about a month. It's a tight squeeze, but everyone is adjusting to the new situation, some faster than others, and everyone is pulling together to survive and try to reclaim their planet.

Finn Erickson is a Quadcopter Pilot who fell in love with flying as a child growing up in Norway and it's been his obsession ever since. He used to be in the United Coalition Air Force, but now spends most of his time with Hell Squad when he's not having almost daily arguments with Lia Murphy, a former supersonic jet Commercial pilot and now leader of the Drone Team, about what a pilot really is. Catching Lia at the end of a training session, he decides that a competition to see who's the best is in order and proposes a bet with high stakes....

I don't want to give spoilers and ruin it for those who like their suspense, but I really couldn't believe Lia accepted such stakes, having said that, I can also understand why she did. Both Finn and Lia have painful memories from before the alien invasion, both are lonely and in need of some serious stress relief, so why not... Only things don't turn out quite the way either of them imagined when those pesky things called feelings start to get involved. Then there are added complications when a signal dead zone is investigated and communications with other groups of survivors across the planet become a priority.

This story is filled with terrific characters, horrifying aliens, new and old, situations that are action packed, explosive, deadly and had me on the edge of my seat hoping against hope that the good guys would get away. This book has lots of humour as well some serious steam leading to a happily ever after for Finn and Lia. The story continues to build on everything that has gone before and the characters evolve like old friends, which I suppose, having read the previous books, they are.

Anna Hackett is one of my all-time favourite authors and an amazing action/adventure romance story teller. I've read a lot of her books over the years, she never disappoints and this one is a very definite winner. Another amazing adventure that had me hooked from beginning to end, and I can't wait for the next one in this terrific series.

I absolutely loved it. I really wish I could give lots more that the 5 star limit and it's definitely on my list of books I'd rescue if the house was burning down.


The Audio

I'm totally addicted to this series and I got this as an ebook when it was first published nearly five years ago. I'll freely admit that I've read it a few times since then, but I now have intermittent problems with my eyes, so I've turned to audio books to fill my need to re-read my favourites. I did try audio books a few years ago, but the narration was so bad, even dreadful, that I gave up on them for quite a while, however, Anna Hackett seems to get significantly better narrators than some I've listened to and I'm overjoyed to say that the two who narrate this series, Jeffrey Kafer and Samantha Cook are incredibly good, truly the exception rather than the rule. They managed to maintain the gritty fight for survival action adventure nature of the book and I highly recommend it to any lover of all-action, alien invasion sci-fi wrapped in a little romance with a few steamy bits for added spice. Having listened to 'Marcus', the first book in the series and been really impressed, I got all the other books in the series that are available as audio versions to back up my kindle versions, just so I don't get withdrawal symptoms when I can't read them. This is my review of 'Finn', the tenth book in the series. The audio versions also have the added bonus of allowing me to do other things whilst listening. I find I listen a lot more than I read these days and have already listened to this one several times since getting it. As I'd already posted an honest review of the ebook several years ago, I decided to update that review with my personal opinion of the audible narration, especially as I have been so disenchanted by audio books in the past.

a lot more action

this was back in the action department, although one part of the drama was a bit stretched but hey...so are aliens decimating Sydney.
this was a wonderful HEA better than the others...and the story progresses.
Sam narrated brilliantly as usual. Jeffrey is fantastic and although he's attempted the British accent he's not that great, but you could say devlin has a bit of an American accent. it's just addictive. the story goes on. and so do I

Excellent

Book 10 of Hell Squad called Finn is about Hawk pilot Finn Erickson and Lia Murphy also a former pilot. There attraction burns hot but both resist it until Finn makes a bet with her and the winner if it is Lia keeps two new really good pilots or if it is Finn he gets Lia in his bed for night, Finn wins and from there the attraction between the two ignites into a red hot inferno. The two must work together to place a communication device deep in the ocean so the enclave can communicate with other survivors around the planet and in doing so they face an alien kraken and other terrible concoctions, they are successful and the fiery passion between them will no longer be denied and both must face loving again in the midst of an apocalypse. Another brilliant edition to the series full of action, humans, aliens and scorching hot attraction and humour that had me laughing out loud. I highly recommend the book and the series as a whole.
