Description

Captain Tannis of the starship El Cazador has one goal in life - to earn enough credits to pay for the Meridian treatment to achieve the immortality she craves. And one last job will get her there. The assignment: protecting the most powerful man in the Universe. Being leader of the known universe isn't all it's cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks big time. And after five hundred years, Callum Meridian, founding member of the Collective, is bored out of his mind. But as things are changing, he's changing - into what, though, he isn't sure. Callum is determined to discover the truth, and he's employed the crew of El Cazador to help him do it. Not everyone agrees with his plan, though. His own people will stop at nothing to prevent the truth coming out. But defying death has never been more dangerous, sexier, or more fun.show more

The third book in the Blood Hunter series is a thrilling adventure that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Captain Tannis of the starship El Cazador is part snake and part human and she has one goal in life �¢â?¬â?? to earn enough credits to pay for the Meridian treatment to achieve the immortality she craves and this one last job will her there. Founding member of the collective, Callum Meridian is the most powerful man in the universe, but the Meridian is changing him and he�¢â?¬â?¢s not sure what he�¢â?¬â?¢s changing into. Determined to find the truth he hires the crew of the El Cazador to help him do it. But not everyone agrees with his plan, his own people will stop at nothing to prevent the truth coming out, the Church is attempting a coup, and even the crew seems close to tossing him out him airlock. Defying death has never been more dangerous, sexier or fun. This fast paced and smooth flowing plot gets the adrenalin pumping with lots of action, intrigue and romance. The author brings the story to life with vibrant images and details that make it seem as if the reader is part of the story. The strong compelling characters grab the reader�¢â?¬â?¢s attention and doesn�¢â?¬â?¢t let go and are easily related to. The attraction between Tannis and Callum explodes from every page, but the romance has lots of obstacles to be overcome not to mention that they are constantly fighting for the lives which make for a very entertaining and engaging read. A couple of scenes brings tears to the eyes and there are quite a few laughs caused by snarky dialogue and characters attitudes. The author introduces new characters that are as fascinating as the previous characters and the story line just keeps getting more absorbing and enjoyable. I totally caught up in the story from beginning to end and while I was upset at a couple of events, it is obvious that they had to happen or the story wouldn�¢â?¬â?¢t have been as believable. I can�¢â?¬â?¢t wait to see what happens next in this series, I can see several possibilities, but I do believe the Nina Croft will just keep surprising me.show more
