This basically is the alien version of Tears of the Sun (the Bruce Willis 2003 movie where SEAL team went into Nigeria to save a doctor and ended up rescuing her refugees as well) albeit with a couple extra elements like supernatural stuff, a monk, and so on thrown in, and of course, a bit of romance and a much happier ending. The characters are pretty nicely portrayed, no insta-lust, just admiration from afar but professional conduct, and only after extensive interaction and saving each other's lives did a relationship and affection develope.
Unfortunately, the romantic interactions between the main characters weren't entirely plausible. They spent most of the book tromping through the jungle, getting battered and injured both mentally and physically, but the bruises, wounds, and (especially) chapped and split lips didn't dampen their desire to kiss?? Particularly a career military man in front of his troops??
I was completely unprepared for the prolonged and explicit sex scene in the middle of the book, and it threw me out of the story. After spending days romping through the jungle, with multiple injuries and not enough sleep, the main character was overcome by desire and had enough energy for that much sex?! I find that highly unlikely. The sex scene was unnecessary for the character development, and felt like it was thrown in because the author was told she had to have a steamy sex scene.
I almost stopped reading at that point, but kept going because I did want to find out why the centuries of peace were so abruptly disrupted. I'm glad I did, because of the unexpected explanation for the war.
A full novel, ends very well and prompts one to look for more from this author. Read it, it will not disappoint.
There are a couple of minor editing mistakes, that in no way take away from the reading pleasure, that should be addressed at some point. Just saying...
NO CLIFFHANGER and a lovely HEA. Recommended.
