Though Nick and Fieo are drawn to each other, their relationship has never been easy. Their differences go beyond their races, but they’ve managed to work together to prevent the spread of corruption, growing closer along the way. Nick still battles the effects of years of loneliness, fear, and pain but surprises everyone when he refuses to stay behind when Fieo is sent on a vital mission to find the Collectors. Fieo objects, but there’s no stopping Nick when he sets his mind to something. Over the course of their mission, it becomes clear Nick is more than anyone ever imagined, but the mystery of his past threatens to derail his future.
The search for the truth will take Fieo and Nick far from Caeorleia, to worlds both familiar and completely alien, and put stress on their already tenuous relationship. It’s a journey that will either tear them apart or finally bring them together.
I have read and loved all the books in this series. But, this book was the one I was waiting for. I loved Nick’s character and really wanted to see him get his HEA.
The world in this series is wonderfully imaginative, and there always seems to be something new for the characters to discover. From different foods, to different technology, there is no end to Alicia’s ideas.
In this story I like that Nick has pulled in all his courage to insist he is allowed to go on the trip with Fieo. He also stands up to Fieo after a panic attack (he really puts the alien in his place) and still agrees to join with him. Nick is brave, smart and loving. Also, his courage stays strong even with all the things he finds out about himself and his family (no I’m not telling, so there).
I highly recommend you read this series from the beginning, and clear a lot of time, because once you start you won’t be able to out them down. Laying supplies might be a good idea too.
Another great story from a great author 🙂
