Captain Tess Bailey and Shade Ganavan are still the galaxy’s Most Wanted, and with revolution in the wind and the universe on the brink of catastrophic war, the situation couldn’t be more desperate. Despite the Dark Watch scouring the known sectors for them, rebel leaders have handed the crew of the Endeavor a delicate and dangerous mission: break into Starbase 12 and free renowned scientist Reena Ahern. She’s the only one who stands a chance of tipping the odds in their favor for the first time in decades.

The clock is ticking. But as their attraction builds and secrets are revealed, Tess and Shade must decide if they trust each other enough to execute this impossible prison break. They could change the course of history, but they’ll be risking everything… They’ll just have to tackle one crisis at a time.

My Review

I had a really good time with this book.  This is the second book in the Nightchaser series which is a series that is best read in order since this book picks up shortly after the events of the first installment.  I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was pretty eager to see what Tess and Shade would face in this installment.  I found this book to be enjoyable from beginning to end.

One of the things that I really liked about this book is that there was a lot of action from the start.  Tess, Shade, and the rest of the crew seem to always find themselves in dangerous situations and it was fun finding out how they deal with each situation.  There were times that it was almost impossible to set the book aside because I was so caught up in the action of the story.   I thought that the action in this story found the perfect balance with the more romantic and character-focused parts of the book.

Tess and Shade are both characters and I think that they really do make a great pair.  They work well together and seem to be able to handle almost any situation.  They are both able to think outside the box and will do what is needed to reach their goals and keep each other safe.  I liked that this story is told from both Tess and Shade’s point of view because I feel like we really got to know exactly what each of them was thinking.  It was fun to watch their relationship continue to develop in this installment.

I would recommend this book to others.  I thought that this was a really well-done science fiction romance filled with wonderful characters.  This story had a lot of action and more than a few twists and turns to keep things interesting.  I cannot wait to read the next book in this exciting series.   

I received a digital review copy of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via Edelweiss.

  1. This author really appeals to me. She had a number of books on the Audible Escape package and I'm really looking forward to trying them.
