This book had a strong start, which is essentially why I claimed it, but I kind of got lost along the way with the action scenes and other elements. I know that is the premise of the story, but not being a big science fiction/fantasy reader I tried my best to follow along. I liked the romance scenes between the two leads through (some of the scenes were so steamy), as well as the aspect of the found family which is one of my favorite tropes. It was an okay read overall. Not particularly my taste in genre, or a book I'd typically pick up for myself, but I thought it was a good setup to this new book series. I'm not sure if I would pick up the next one though, will probably borrow from my library.
