Lauren Dane is one of my favorite authors and I really wanted to LOVE this book, but it didn’t quite get there for me. I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series and I was sooo looking forward to reading this one, specially by just by looking at the cover. This has to be one of the hottest covers ever! *wipes drool off the keyboard*

I enjoyed the story though, it had a really good plot, I think maybe even better than some other books in this series, but my main complaint….there wasn’t enough action. The heroine, Carina, was a bit immature and a bit too childish for my liking at times, not enough that I would consider her annoying, but she came across as very needy. One good thing about her was that she knew when to listen and let Daniel do his job, instead of being the “I-can-take-care-of-myself female” that sooo annoys me.

Going back to the lack of action, it seemed that they didn’t have to face too many problems getting out of the Imperial ‘Verses, which means either Daniel and Andrei were just that good (and they might’ve been) or the bad people just plain sucked! LOL But that was ok.

I really liked Daniel as a character, his story, where he came from, his relationship with his family, a really sweet guy behind the tough exterior. Carina I didn’t really connect with. I kept hoping she would grow on me so I would see her as more deserving of Daniel, but in the end I guess I’m happy with them being together, she’ll be good for him and will balance him out. There was just something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on.

The secondary characters I’m intrigued by. Andrei, Vincenz, Alex, and I really didn’t see the need to kill Marame. I was rooting for her and Vincenz to end up together 🙁

I am looking forward to the next book to see where the war between the Federation and Imperial ‘Verses will end.  If you’re looking for something different, a bit of sci-fi romance, this series is great!
