I’ve really enjoyed this series but had a serious problem with Cobra stepping in and making his benevolent offer. He has a bonded mate, and with all the hype about bonding should keep his nose, and other protrusions, out of Jago and Piper’s business. That said, this was similar to the previous books with bonding and protecting the female paramount in the Castian warriors mind. The added difficulties added by the Tonans and the Castians own lack of experience moves the story along while adding some spice.
The third book in the series this particular book veered into some uncomfortable territory that didn’t jibe with the Castian commitment as stated in the previous books. We all know Cobra is mated, but has a son from a previous relationship that didn’t result in bonding. Does this mean Cobra is less than honorable? His offer to do the job Jago was failing at hinted that he has some hidden agenda, or maybe that was just me. The backstory involving Jago’s warrior mate was at times more interesting than the primary story but all in all this was a good continuation of the overall story.
Kidnapped from dying Earth by the heinous Tonan race, Piper is locked in a small cell, deprived of light and human companionship and tormented on a daily basis. When the door to her hell opens unexpectedly Piper is blinded by the light and walks headlong into a massively built creature. She is tossed over a shoulder, taken on the wildest ride of her life then placed into a healing pool.
Jago is a four-hundred-year-old immortal who has never seen a living breathing female before, but he knows of their existence. Their ship was headed to the planet Earth to see if they could find these rare human gifts when they accidently stumbled onto the Tonan vessel. Desperate to find a mate Jago was thrilled when the little female walked right into his arms as though she was waiting for him. Unfortunately Jago’s leader, Cobra, has asked to impregnate Piper, thinking Jago too young.
Ultimately, the choice is Piper’s. Who will she choose?
