Rescued from alien slavers, former cop Dayna is now host to an alien symbiont. The only man who can help her understand and control the symbiont is the mysterious casino owner, Rillian.
Finally we get the mysterious RIllian’s book! This book was a fast paced adventure with great romance and characters. I just love how this world continues to develop and expand with each book we get. Rillian has been mysterious since he was introduced and we finally get his history, which is heartbreaking. Having Dayna around makes him realize how alone he truly has been and how he doesn’t want to go back to that. Dayna was the perfect woman for Rillian because she shook up his life and never let him push her away.
Dayna is a strong, passionate, and capable woman. As a former homicide detective she knows how to protect herself and now having the symbiont just makes her stronger. She has a strong need to protect others which is why she struggles with feeding her symbiont. She doesn’t want to hurt anyone and fears she will not be able to control it. Dayna was just the perfect woman to break through Rillian’s icy exterior and he was the perfect man for her protective and assertive nature.
This series is coming to a close, which I am both excited and sad about. I can’t wait to see them find all the humans and close Zaabah but I don’t want to lose this amazing world and characters.
