Series: Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone #3
Paramedic Sage McAlister has spent months locked in the Edull’s cells and labs. Now that she is finally free she is struggling to cope with what happened and the guilt of being free. The only person who she doesn’t pretend with is the emotionless cyborg Acton.
I really enjoyed Sage and Acton’s story. They started out as friends but it quickly became more. Under the dampers and enhancements, Acton was a surprisingly sweet man. He helps Sage deal with her guilt and find her place in this new world. At the same time, Sage is teaching Acton how to embrace his feelings. I love their relationship, especially how they both help the other deal with their emotions, just in different ways.
A lot of action and battle also happen in this book. The cyborgs deal with more Edull robots, more desert exploration and they rescue more humans. I love the mixture of action and romance in this series. I can’t wait for the next book so we can see what happens with Toren.
