Publisher's Summary

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

Mackenna Carides is tough, strong, and excellent at her job as second-in-command of Squad Nine. She often works side-by-side with Hell Squad on some of the toughest missions to fight back against the alien raptors. Now, she's helping the survivors of Blue Mountain Base settle into their new home at the Enclave. And that means working with the Enclave's sexy civilian leader, Nikolai Ivanov, an artist who watches her with an intensity that is hard to ignore. A man she's seen in the field and who she knows is hiding a mysterious past.

Niko is dedicated to the people of the Enclave and to his art. Once, his life was all about death and destruction; now, it's about life and creation - even in the middle of an alien apocalypse. As he welcomes the Enclave's new members, there is one newcomer he wants to get closer to...but Mackenna is fighting their attraction. As something starts attacking their drones - vital technology for keeping them all safe - Niko realizes that in order to battle this new danger, he'll have to return to the darkness of his past...and risk Mackenna never looking at him the same way again.

On a dangerous mission to save their drones from the aliens, Niko will need all of his lethal skills and will wade into the fight with Mac by his side. They will be tested to the brink, where nothing is black or white, and they will have to expose themselves and trust each other to fight, live, and love.

Action keeps going

Story is still building and action and romance is ongoing; something different added to this story. Niko sounds very handsome; model on the cover is handsome; nice-looking couple. Narrators are remain on point with characters. Love the the way the team members razz each other. On to the next book. Can’t wait to get to Devlin and Manu’s story.

Great quick listen

Mackenna and Niko’s initial meeting didn’t go very well and was further complicated by Mackenna continuing to avoid him and rebuff his interest in her. The attraction between them sizzles and cannot be prolonged for long allowing both of them to fall head over heels for each other. Thank goodness they have well-meaning supportive friends. This was a great quick listen. The narrators continue to do a wonderful job.

Niko is definitely worth the listen!

Another fabulous adventure with Hell squad. Anna Hackett has a fantastic way of writing a story. It’s a well written and narrated suspenseful storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat.
The narrator’s do a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between the characters. They’re becoming one of my favorite narrator’s.

Liked it.

I liked it.
But I think it should have been called MAC, not NIKO.

Afterall, this is about Squads and SHE is the on on the squad - not Niko.

Great series

I just finished Niko and can't wait to listen to the next book. While the series is set in the future, I don't feel like everything is unbelievable which helps me to get in to the characters and story line. I love the interaction between the squads and can't wait to get to the Beserkers.

It took a bit to get used to the narrators but now that I'm used to them, I don't mind them. They have become part of the story. It would seem strange to have different narrators now.

Niko: artist and more

Niko, co-leader of the Enclave and artist extraordinaire, has a distraction in Mackenna Mac Careides (sp?). The member of squad 9 has been assigned to him to better integrate the Blue Mountain group into the Enclave and make everything more comfortable.

Mac is not looking to let anyone in, but Niko is difficult to ignore... even when there is a new threat that they have to figure out before they are left with no way to keep drones in the air and helping their people on missions.

love this!

This is a wonderful series for sci fi fans.

Each book focuses on a different couple while building the story of a world fighting a take over by a species who is so alien to humans there is no common ground. I love the characters and all of their stories are intertwined painting a large picture of people coming together despite their back stories.

He's my Favourite!

My favourite book in the series so far. The Blue Mountain Base survivors have reached 'The Enclave' and are trying to fit in whilst still fighting the aliens. Squad Nine second-in-command Mackenna Carides is tough, strong, and excellent at her job. She needs no one.. Certainly not the man she is stuck working with. Nikolai Ivanov. The enigma that is part sexy civilian leader, part intense artist and part something else. Something more. After their first meeting she knows he is hiding a mysterious past. But she can't get involved with someone like him even if he was interested in someone like her. So not happening.

Artist Niko is a man with a dangerous past of death and destruction who now dedicates his life to protecting all the people of the Enclave including now, the Blue Mountain Base survivors. More especially one newcomer. Mackenna is fighting their attraction but he vows to break through her tough shell and he always gets what he wants. Unfortunately his past may get in the way. When something starts attacking their drones Niko realizes that in order to battle this new danger, he will have to reveal who he really is and revisit the darkness of his past...and risk Mackenna never looking at him the same way again.

On a dangerous mission together Mackenna will see a side of Niko that she has never seen. A side that leaves her conflicted about her emotions. Niko will need all of his lethal skills. He will be tested to the brink of endurance and sacrifices will be made. Where nothing is black or white, will two damaged people take the risk and expose themselves and trust each other to fight, live, and love. Probably, but it will take everything they have and then some....

I LOVE Niko, personally I think he is my favourite character so far. He has so much depth and Jeffery does an amazing job bringing him to life. The 'fight' with Mac is only one highlight of this book. So good!!

just soooo good

I'm just hooked. the falling in love is the same, although the steamy scenes differ...in all books.
This one wasn't as action packed as the previous book, but there was a focus on a different enemy. I've been wondering how selina was going to fit in and its starting to show.
hallelujah to Jeffrey, he actually used a British accent for devlin.
just so enjoy where Ms Hackett is taking the story and the falling in love thing with hot alphas and strong heroines is an added bonus...just gotta keep going.
also I'm from australia so having this book based around Sydney and its outer regions makes me smile. good research Anna.

Really Really Good

Niko book 9 of Hell Squad focuses on Mackenna Carides and Nikolai Ivanov. Niko hasn't been able to take his eyes off Mackenna since she held a gun barrel to his skull when she and rest of the Blue Mountain Survivors made it to the enclave. Mackenna doesn't believe Niko is just an artist and one of the people in charge of the enclave and she certainly doesn't believe in getting attached to anybody or anything. Niko wants Mackenna and will do anything to get her and he will have his work cut out for him. They end up running missions together and the sparks fly between them. This another book full of action, aliens and laugh out loud humour and some scorching hot interactions between the main two characters and I highly recommend it.
