Rescue might just be the death of her. Far from home . . . Fiona Russell has been snatched from Earth, imprisoned and used as slave labor, but nothing about her abduction makes sense. When she's rescued by the Grih, she realizes there's a much bigger game in play than she could ever have imagined, and she's right in the middle of it. Far from safe . . . Battleship captain Hal Vakeri is chasing down pirates when he stumbles across a woman abducted from Earth. She's the second one the Grih have found in two months, and her presence is potentially explosive in the Grih's ongoing negotiations with their enemies, the Tecran. The Tecran and the Grih are on the cusp of war, and Fiona might just tip the balance. Far from done . . . Fiona has had to bide her time while she's been a prisoner, pretending to be less than she is, but when the chance comes for her to forge her own destiny in the new world she's found herself in, she grabs it with both hands. After all, actions speak louder than words. Class 5 Series, Book 2.
Two Boundless Stars
I had a really hard time with this one. As much as I loved the first installment of the series Dark Horse, I just couldn’t engage with Dark Deeds. I think my issue is, I read Dark Horse almost 9 months before I read Dark Deeds, and it wasn’t fresh in my mind due to the amount of books I read. Dark Deeds picks up like you are completely immersed in the world and doesn’t give any type of refresher on language, culture or what is even going on. I felt lost through a lot of the story. Much like Fiona did.
I think if you are going to dive into Dark Deeds, you will enjoy it more if you read it right after Dark Horse. I am rating it 2 Boundless Stars, It could have been better.
