Publisher's Summary

Kayde NaDetya isn't asking for a miracle....
After witnessing the impossible mating of his fellow soulless warrior, Kayde doesn't expect a denya of his own. But whenever Quinn Porter walks into a room, he can't keep himself from watching her, from following her, from wanting her. And those desires mean trouble for a man who isn't supposed to feel anything.

Quinn just wants things to get back to normal....
Sure, she was captured by pirates and abused for months, but Quinn's doing her best to stay positive and create a good life back on Earth than. She has a small group of friends made up of fellow survivors and the determination to recover from all that was done to her. She's not in the market for a man, but a certain coldly loyal Detyen could make her change her mind.

An accidental journey....
When Kayde undertakes a mission to journey back to his Detyen home, he's ready for the solitude. What he doesn't expect is Quinn hiding away in one of the bunks on his ship. Forced to undertake a dangerous mission together, even knowing that the remnants of emotion he feels when she's around might be signs of oncoming madness, Kayde and Quinn will need to rely on each other when everything goes wrong and their lives and freedom are at stake. 

Can a heartless warrior recover his soul in the arms of a broken woman? Or will the wounds of their pasts prevent the hope of a future?

Each Detyen Warriors novel can be heard as a standalone. Enjoy feisty women, alpha aliens, fated mates, and relationships hot enough to steam up your audio device.

Amazing Adventure

The rescued women sat at a table drinking and talking. Quinn still isn’t over what happened to her and has nightmares about her experience. She kept having a feeling she was being watched and, when she went toward the bathrooms, she heard the back door open and followed outside. A figure in black blended into the crowd. She called out “Kayde” but he didn’t stop so she went back inside.

Kayde NaDetya has no expectations of finding his denya (mate), yet he feels obsessively compelled to watch Quinn and follow her everywhere. She makes him feel when he shouldn’t feel anything at all because he had allowed the Detyen Legion to remove his soul, and with it all of his emotions, to lengthen his life so he could track their enemy, Yormas of Wreet and bring him to justice for the destruction of Detya. So he mistakenly reasoned that these strange sensations were actually symptoms of his oncoming madness. To get himself away from Quinn, he accepts a dangerous mission to find out what happened to the Detyens and what had been their home, only to be totally surprised to find Quinn, the woman he was trying to avoid, stowed aboard his ship.

When they land on a planet for supplies, they are captured and endure ceremonial rituals and fighting. Kayde was forced to fight over and over, knocked out by a dart after each victory. Quinn was told she was queen and her coronation was being prepared, then they put manacles on her hands! Neither knew what was going on here, nor did they know what was happening to the other. To Kayde’s surprise, when he defeats all of the challengers and Quinn asks him to hug her, he realizes that Quinn is, in fact, his denya! He could not believe this was possible, but the things he was feeling told him it was true. Quinn, however, had deep trauma from her slave situation and was afraid to care for Kayde when her fear prevented her from accepting physical intimacy. Could they help each other move forward to heal and find love? Would she realize what he was to her?

I was fortunate to read this story along with the audiobook version and it really enhanced the enjoyment of the story. The two narrators did a great job together. The action sped up once they were on the planet and fighting for their freedom. The characters were well-presented. Quinn annoyed me somewhat with her constant references to being bored – it made little sense after her experiences and never knowing what would happen next. Boredom would be the least of my issues! Kayde, however, was a strong, powerful warrior who always made her feel safe. She was fortunate to be with him. Grab your copy and see where this goes. They are far from safe as they now have to retrieve the Queen’s crown. This is an amazing adventure the reader will love!

Would rate higher but the lady reading is awful!

The guy reading is amazing, but whoever they had read the women's part is absolutely terrible, I can't get behind any of the characters that she reads in the story. It's really hard to focus on the going on when she's so monotone and flat in her performance. if they got a better reader for those parts these books would be so much better!

Action Packed is an understatement!

This is part of a series that I am really enjoying the issue with this series however is the fact it is other sub series within the main series. The other sub series is not the best so to me this book could have been a hit or miss. Luckily it was a hit. I have always loved a hero in which most people tend to be scared of at no fault to himself. There is something about a hero who has been looked upon as flawed or looked upon as unstable that has always drawn to me.

Kayde is that male.

Everyone looks at him as though he can start murdering people left and right but he is not that person. I loved the fact we got to see his inner monologue so we were able to get to know him a bit more. I loved Quinn as well. She is strong a independent and someone who you would want to me friends with. I only wished that we got to explore these two as individuals more than we did.

This story had a lot of action to the point where it was nonstop. For such a story read this is the only book in the series so far where you are wondering what is going to happen. Also we get to see a similar face and I am looking forward to see more of her. I am super excited to see what these two authors have in store.

Awesome narration

The male narrator is awesome doing the "souless" voice . The female narrator does a great job too.
This author's stories are amazing! I am so glad that Kayde got his happy ever after. I have loved each and every Detyen I have read about but Kayde was the one who most broke my heart.
Kayde believes that he is showing obsessive behavior toward one of the rescued women. He follows Quinn around and thinks about her all the time. He decides that he needs to get away from her. So he goes on a mission to find out what happened to the Detyens and the place he had called home. He accepts that their maybe no one left except the enemy. But he thinks his time is almost up anyway and doesn't believe that he will be returning to Earth.
The problem is that after Kayde is a good distance from Earth, he finds out that Quinn was on board and he wasn't told. Together they embark on an adventurous trip. They land on a planeet where some of the beings there kidnaps them and they individually partake in weird rituals and fighting. Then he realizes that she is his Dental!
If you give it a try will become absorbed into this world.the same as I am. I adore this author's imagination and look forward to reading more about the Detyens.

More action in this one

I liked this story. I do have a hard time connecting with these characters for some reason. It might be the narrator he has a flat tone to his voice when telling the story and makes it a little boring.
