Publisher's Summary

After a soldier is left for dead, Eva Delgado's life begins to unravel.

The truth of what happened remains a mystery, and the government will stop at nothing to keep it buried.

Together with the unit's medic, Eva finds herself branded a terrorist and enemy of the state, hunted by two opposing governments.

When the pair uncover a plot that could have ramifications for the whole galaxy, they know they have to act, but it will take all of their training, cunning and just a bit of luck to do what no one else has achieved.

But what do you do when every secret begets another? And how far will you go to find the answers?

Keep them coming!

I've gotten lost in every book I've listened to from J.N. Chaney. I just started this book and I already can't put it down. Another great start to a new series.

Enjoyed the storyline. Absolutely hooked.

The story was well played out. You could feel the emotions of each of the characters through the words of Chaney and Lerma. Khistine Hvam also did a wonderful job narrating. Can't wait for another installment from this group.

Great Expansion of Renegade Star Universe

I listened to the whole thing in one sitting. I would recommend to anyone. You don't need to be up to date on the Renegade Star series to enjoy this stand alone series. Although, there are some great Easter Eggs if you are.

Fun story and good addition to Renegade universe

Chaney and Lerma make a good team.

Nice to see a strong female protagonist. She is tough but also has some weakness, which is nice. Interested characters. Well described fight scenes. Fun details throughout the story.

Another home run

I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but I was pleasantly surprised! Lerma and Chaney really know how to deliver an engaging story. This is a great military space opera with a hero you wouldn't expect. Very cool plot with intriguing characters to keep you reading. I look forward to the next one!

Mixed thoughts...

This author hit two of my pet peeves! First, the story starts with romance, and there are flashbacks to the romance, which I really don't care for, given I am interested in the action. Second, the author has the lead characters doing dumb things when in a combat situation! For example, they get the drop on a bad guy, and then instead of taking them out, they talk and subsequently the bad guys overcome the situation and down goes the good guys! Frass!
