My Review

5/5 Stars

Captain Jake and his crew are locked in a battle to the death with an alien race known as the Daughters of Death. As they engage in a battle that could very well end them, they are faced with aspects of their past that haunt them and could potentially determine the outcome of the entire war.

I like books that really get us inside the heads of the main characters. This is one of those books that does that. Davis leaves us able to understand the motives behind both sides of the war, making the story’s subplots clash in ways that had me on the edge of my seat. I wasn’t sure who I wanted to root for, to be honest, because I loved nearly every character.

The worldbuilding was also phenomenal. Even though I haven’t read the preceding book, I think I’m going to go back and start from book one. This book gave me a taste of a world that I want to see more of.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
