Elizabeth Munro sets the stage with Core Alliance soldiers who have been modified genetically to enhance their strength, speed and sight in a war against an alien species- the Aphids. Rye's a third generation whose implants eliminate the need for drugs or therapy to enhance his performance while Angel is first generation, born of civilian parents. Normally Rye would not be paired with a first generation female, but for over six months they've become discreetly intimate, their feelings growing in intensity. When Angel tells Rye she loves him it triggers his uncertainty and wariness, until with her loss on their mission to Constant he recognizes the depth of his feelings.
As events unfold that have Rye reuniting with Angel at Whistler, suspense and tension mounts as they not only clash with the deadly Aphids, but have to avoid Core leadership on The Barrington, and return to the quiet community where the best part of themselves is hidden from prying eyes. The plot is fast-paced and intoxicating from the first page to the last as wills clash and secrets from Angel's past are uncovered that will change both their lives forever. Even at the end after an explosive confrontation Elizabeth Munro leaves questions unanswered and smoothly opens the way for a sequel.
In an imaginative and well-written story, Elizabeth Munro has created unforgettable characters like Rye commander of the Titan, an efficient and arrogant warrior who lost his heart to his first generation Comms Officer. A by-the-book, duty-oriented officer, he's tenacious in his resolve to protect Angel and a child for years he never knew existed. Angel haunted by her inability to protect her brother Allen from the Aphids joined the Core to exact vengeance; her job, data storage. Although she tries to ignore her love for Rye their passion soon flares. But Angel's also a loving, conscientious mother determined to protect her daughter even if it means denying her heart. Four year old Quinn is innocent and brave; a brilliant linguist who adores her mother and father but is coveted by the Core and the Aphids.
Included among the other characters who add the odd slice of humor, spice and drama to the story are Rye's tough and driven twin Tong; the frank and clever medic Scarlet; the no-nonsense and diligent intelligence officer Sesia; morale up-lifter and engineer Atom, as well as the reserved, authoritative Denman, Core leader on The Barrington. But it's the cold, unemotional Aphids, and the bitterness and cruelty of Angel's half-Aphid brother Allen who add a darkly sinister menace to the story.
I thoroughly enjoyed "Constant" and hope this is only the first in a series that I would definitely follow.
