It's been 300 years since general Jaden was exchanged for Earth's freedom and the Treaty came into effect. There's been interbreeding, but there are factions of humans who vehemently oppose the dilution of the human genome.
"Once a Qui covets a human, they never let go. They pursue their target. They will seduce, abduct and stalk. Whatever it takes to secure their prize. Keep your distance, children. Run at the first sign of Qui mating scent. It is your duty."
These are the ominous words ringing through HD-X agent Ahnna's mind. Her mission in life is to erradicate proponents who support these interspecies matings... Like Alliance Enforcement agent Tierc Marcel; a Qui human from a noble bloodline. Life would be so much better without the lusty lizards breathing down humanity's back!
Well, Ahnna's wish is about to become reality as the two of them are caught in a wormhole and transported into an alternate universe where the Qui are extinct, and humanity has expanded into the Paragon Galaxy. But: All is not well across the galaxy... Forced to take part in a twisted gameshow, these two adversaries will have to rethink old grudges and long held beliefs, all while the Galaxy is watching them fight, and, ahem, eventually f*** ;-)
Ceasefire is a spin-off of Kayla's Qui Treaty series. As one would expect from a Kayla novel, the players are still human and Qui, but this plot is more action driven than the usual Qui novels. That's to be expected from a series called The Great Space Race; a multi author series. There's less explicit sex, and the usual dark and edgy bdsm play is missing. If sub/dom play is what's been keeping you back from reading the Qui Treaty novels, then this just might be the book for you. (Personally, I've really enjoyed that aspect;-))
I've fallen in love with every single Qui/human pairing, Tierc however, was especially fascinating because of his mixed Heritage. He is Qui - but also human, and, even though Ahnna refuses to acknowledge it; a perfect blend of both, *swoon*. As a hybrid, Tierc is very knowledgeable about to Qui/human history. I sucked up every little tidbit of information about the Qui Galactic empire and adored some of the Qui human names that popped up along the way. Let me just say it's obvious that more military personel than we know about to date went on to produce ofspring with their Qui partners. Saracen, I'm looking at YOU;-)
All being said and done, I thoroughly enjoyed Ceasefire, but I'm also anxious to get back to the original story. I'm far too invested in ALL the imperial Qui nobles, the upcoming Surashan war and Jaden/Sonil's relationship to make due with just historical anecdotes.
~I was given an eArc in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to the author~
How do you deprogram (re-educate) an assassin sent to kill you, a serious dilemma for Tierc because he can not kill the mate chosen by his Qui. Ahnna, from birth, has been brainwashed into believing that the Qui must be destroyed. Having sacrificed what is most dear to her for the cause, she finds herself lost and confused when her sworn enemy turns into the kindest person she has ever known. Overcoming a lifetime of hate to see beyond the lies. I loved this story packed full of action, danger, self doubt and heartache. Ahnna and Tierc's journey to love is fraught with distrust but worth every bit of the heartache and hurt. Voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader's copy of this book.
Since this was part of a set of stories by different authors all based on the Great Space Race, I was interested in seeing how the "winners" would play out in the books. I read of a couple of the books at the same time and am quite pleased that each author brought to their books a unique story that still fit in with the rest. Ceasefire was no exception.
My frustrations come from personal experience with tv. There’s no way that the action completely works with the context. Anyway, this is my honest review for an advanced copy. It’s well written. I have some issues with it. That’s it.
