Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author S.E. Smith presents another adventure- and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world.

River Knight was looking forward to a peaceful vacation in the mountains with her two best friends, Jo and Star, sisters of the heart. When she travels up into the mountains of North Carolina to the cabin Star has rented for them, she is shocked when she finds the two sisters being abducted. Following them, she discovers their abductors are anything but human.

Sneaking aboard the shuttle in an attempt to rescue them, she finds herself on an unplanned vacation to the stars. In a desperate attempt to save Jo and Star, River makes a deal with a group of other aliens who have also been captured: she'll release them if they promise to return the three girls to their home.

Torak Ja Kel Coradon, leader of the House of Kassis and next ruler of the Kassis galaxy, has other plans when he sees the blue-eyed warrior woman - he wants her for himself.

The three women are believed to be the prophesied warriors, sent to join forces to bring peace to the House of Kassis. Worlds collide when the male-dominated world meets three circus performers who use their talents to fight for those they love. When an assassin threatens Torak's life, River has to show him even a circus performer can be a warrior when challenged. But the biggest challenge is to Torak's mind, as he discovers women from other galaxies are more than they seem.

Can their love overcome the chasm of a few million light years, or will an assassin end it all?

    "I read the book first and was excited to hear it!"

    Loved the book and getting to listen to it too! Samantha did almost as good of a job reading it out loud as the voice in my head did when I read it!

    "I cant get this time back"

    For starters, this was the dumbest book that I've listened to so far. Ms Smith might be a good author but this wouldn't be an example of that. It was like a 10th grader wrote it, a very precocious 10th grader. It would have been a 1 star for sure if it wasn't for the naughty bits. Honestly, I was listening while waiting for a flight in the gate area of my local airport, surrounded by the good people of Michigan. The narrator began reading the first sex scene and it made me giggle and blush! Ms Smith has quite an imagination! The narrator has a pleasant voice but was a bit monotone. I think some of the racier scenes could have used a little more emotion.Well, anyhow, I was able to make it to the end but I don't think I will listen to the next one.

    "It was ok"

    I like S E Smiths stories.
    This one was like the others with exception of the narrator. The men sounded weak. The girls all the same.

    Story
    "Who knew?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea


    What could S.E. Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I really like a lot of her books, but this one was too much. Who knew all the way across the galaxy, aliens used butt plugs, nipple clamps, and floggers? Oh my goodness! I was yelling about how stupid that was. The story had some promise, but was ruined by the monotone, non emotional, narration; and the BDSM ridiculousness.


    What didn’t you like about Samantha Cook’s performance?

    Very bad! There was no appropriate emotion in her voice. Like I said, they could have hired Ben Stein doing his monotone voice.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to know more of the story, but never will order an audio of these books again. That way I can skip all the stupid stuff and stick to the plot. I wanted to see how this series may tie into some of the other ones S.E. Smith has written. Should have listened to the other reviews.

    "Great Story!"

    I absolutely loved this story. The story flowed perfectly between each of the main characters. Loved the strength of character of River and her sisters. The narration was fabulous and down right sexy. I can't wait to listen to the next story.

    "Decent, but not SES best"

    Great at sale price. This is a decent series, but maybe SES 3rd or 4th best. Collect others first. Enjoy your escape listening or reading.
