New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of science fiction and paranormal romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world. Gracie Jones was little more than a child when Earth was invaded by an alien species. Escaping into the subway tunnels of New York City, she hid in fear of being captured. Discovered by four men who became her protectors, she fought alongside them, and they became known as the Freedom Five. At seventeen, she made a decision that turned the tide in the war between Earth and the Alluthans, but in exchange, she gave up all that she knew. Kordon Jefe is a Zion Warrior and the commanding officer in charge of the Confederation of Planets' military. When an unknown species begins attacking some of their outer settlements, he is assigned to discover who they are and stop them-at any cost. Gracie finds herself stranded millions of light years and hundreds of years in the future in a distant galaxy on an undeveloped moon. When an old enemy threatens once more, she does not hesitate to use her knowledge to try to stop them once again. Only this time, it is not just Earth she will be saving, but the Confederation itself. When their two worlds are thrown together, Kordon is unsure what to do with the strange, delicate creature who fights and behaves unlike anyone he has ever encountered before. One thing he does know-he plans to keep her.… (mais)

I stumbled upon this author's works and quickly devoured them, which left me hoping for new stories with more strong and intelligent women, tough but romantic men and loads of fascinating secondary characters that just demand their own tales.

So when I discovered that a new series was starting, I definitely spent the time anticipating release day, hoping that the author was going to create another story for my "favorites" collection. And she did.

The story held my attention from the introduction of Gracie in her time and Kordon in his, to their meeting and through all the ups and downs until the end was reached. Plus some very hot scenes once the two come together.

Then I had to go back and read it again. I already want to see more of Kordon's brothers and friends and Krac. And I definitely want to see more strong, independent female earthlings changing the mindsets of certain Zion warriors. Maybe others like Gracie are so busy with their lives and concerns that they don't have the time to waste flirting and chasing after Zion males.

After much debate, a 4 star rating rather than a 5. Perhaps a future story will explain how the "offspring" of the Alluthans are running around the confederacy and yet no one was aware of the Alluthan threat. How did Gracie hold onto her sanity for 3 years, most would probably have lasted only a few weeks. Still a few grammatical errors and word choices but most I didn't even notice until the second read-thru. But the author already has control of the important elements of storytelling like plot, characters and world-building. And each new story has had fewer errors than the previous one.

A very enjoyable read. Now I don't know whether to hope for another book in this series soon when I'm already waiting for upcoming releases in some of the other series. ( )
