Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of science fiction, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance brings another action-, adventure-, and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world.

Jo Strauss is committed to two things in her life - her family and her life as an acrobat/high-wire performer; she takes both very seriously. Her life is orderly, in control, and she is finally settling down in one place so she can spend more time with her parents instead of moving all over the world every few weeks. To celebrate her and her younger sister Star's one year anniversary away from the circus they have grown up with, they meet River Knight, their childhood friend and sister of the heart, for a vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. Everything is going as planned until she and her sisters are kidnapped. Now, she finds herself transported to another world. Aliens, warships, battles, and a certain male all were not in the carefully detailed plans she had mapped out for her life.

Manota Ja Kel Coradon is the second son of the ruling House of Kassis. He is known as the dark brother, a reputation that he lives up to. He has fought hard to protect his family and the people of Kassis, at times sacrificing parts of his soul to do so. His knowledge, skills, and development of weaponry are legendary. His skill as a warrior brings shivers of fear to his opponents, who know he never offers mercy to any who stand in his way.

Manota is in total control of his world, until one slender, feisty alien female crashes through the shields he has placed around his heart. She is fearless, determined, and stubborn. She absolutely refuses to cower before him, no matter how much he growls. He is determined to protect her and claim her as his own, but there is one little problem - she will not agree to accept his claim unless he returns for her parents.

Now, he has even bigger problems that come in all different shapes, sizes, and species. The return trip is fraught with enough dangers, but Jo and Star's parents aren't the only ones coming back to Kassis - so is the circus family who had gathered to help look for their missing family members.

Traitors, pirates, and mimes are just the tip of the iceberg of trouble gliding through warp speed to his home world. Manota is about to learn that the prophecy that was foretold centuries before is true. His mate is just as much of a warrior as he is, and she comes with backup when an old enemy attacks.

AWESOME STORY - NEVER DULL.

Would you listen to Jo's Journey again? Why?

YES. I PLAN ON DOING IT AGAIN SOON. I HAVE ALREADY LISTENED TO RIVER AND STAR'S STORIES TWICE. I CATCH THINGS I MISSED THE FIRST TIME THRU.

What other book might you compare Jo's Journey to and why?

BOY THAT IS A HARD REQUEST. ALL SUSAN'S BOOKS ARE AWESOME, WITH ADVENTURES A-PLENTY.

What about Samantha Cook’s performance did you like?

I LOVED SAMANTHA'S NARRATION - SHE DID A GREAT JOB. MOVED RIGHT ALONG, DIDN'T LAG IN THE DIALOG AT ALL. :-)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

WARRIORS FROM EARTH SAVES KASSIS AND BRINGS LOVE TO THE ALLIANCE.

Any additional comments?

GREAT STORY SE SMITH, GREAT STORY.

I love the circus performers!

Jo is a bad azz staff wielding human finally who admits she loves her alien and he agrees to bring her family from Earth. They are still trying to kill the ex council member who is determined to kill the human females. SE Smith has the most engaging stories! Love the narrator too!

Continuation of a Lovely Little Series

Book 3, continuation of a lovely little series. Light reading/listening. Ok at credit or sale price, not full price. Not much overlap. Decent narration. Much better storyline, characters & writing than most light material that's out there these days. I can recommend most of S.E. Smith's books- I'm working my way through all her titles.
