Liora Day, half-human, half-mess with her and you'll die Damaclan, had been thrown onto a rough path at a very early age. But when she is broken out of a cage by Devren, the young captain of the SS Kratos, she is shown that perhaps humanity does have a heart. The Kratos is set on a mission to rescue fallen surveyors from the Revolutionaries, and Liora is given the choice to follow her Damaclan instincts, or trust Devren's dark eyes and captivating smile that promise an adventure unlike any she has ever experienced.
I have found that I like to dabble in science fiction books on occasion and I enjoyed reading this one. As much as I loved science as a child, I have always been more of an Earth Science type of girl, and not as much about physics and what not. It was pretty easy for me to keep up with this book and I loved Liora. She's a great character! Her past was so hard that it made me cringe several times as the book went through some of her background. There is not just one bad guy in this book. It seems like there are two main ones with several smaller ones in the form of Revolutionaries that keep attacking Liora and her new friends. After having suffered an awful childhood because she was an unwanted half-blood by most everyone except her mother, everyone in her clan is killed by something I still don't quite understand but can only guess that it's another strange creature that's something like a demon where she lived. Or perhaps they traveled there since it seems that all sorts of people and creatures travel through space to different planets and asteroids in this book. Whether it's probable or not is irrelevant to me in this type of book though. It's science fiction, where the improbable becomes certainty. And that is one of the reasons I like to read this genre sometimes. As for Liora, she goes from one suffering situation to another. One can't help but want to feel sorry for her, but this chick doesn't want pity. She wants to kick butt and just be free. A very nice read!
4 out of 5 stars!
