This book exemplifies what draws me consistently to Holley Trent's books. She is one of the few authors I've read who has the skill and takes the time to fully develop not only her character's personalities, but also their relationships, in a back drop of worlds that are described in enough detail to make the story feel real. The stage was set in Book One, and if you haven't read it yet, I recommend doing that before reading this one. It is also an excellent book. But if you can't, then go ahead with this one. I think once you read it, you'll want to read book one anyway.
Courtney, Erin and Owen McGarry have settled on a farm in a remote area of Jekh with Courtney's Jekhan mates and others who fled the war with them. Erin has settled into patrolling the farm's borders with Headron, a Jekhan baker and close friend. Headrom wants her as his mate, but she continues to refuse him. She cares about him, just believes the Jekhans have been already been preyed upon enough by Terrans and that the Jekhans should reinforce their bloodlines, not dilute them. But Headron is persistent. Although he doesn't want to share, he acquiesces to her condition that he find the third person for their triad, a Jekhan genetic requirement for procreation, before she will agree. Erin doesn't believe he will find anyone they both can agree to, or who will be compatible with her erratic personality. But while he is setting the search in motion, Erin submits to Esteben Beshi, Morki's brother, a dominant, fractured Jekh she believes will satisfy a need without further entanglements. Esteban proves he can be just as unpredictable as Erin and as relentless as Headron, however, once he has a goal in mind.
In a secondary storyline, Liz Devin sends her agents to retrieve the McGarry's grandfather, the Terran man who set the resistance in motion decades before. A man who has been in stasis off planet for years. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
