The last of the Stryke sisters has finally been Subdued and they all now have their Vakarran mates and are working hard to bring down Nix and his horrible cronies. This time, it’s Kaela, and she is going to lead her men on a merry chase, but they will all enjoy the end of it.
So, all of Kaela’s sisters are gone, one after the other. She’s pretty sure that they are all with the Vakarrans, and from all the stories she’s heard of the Vakarrans over the last 10 years, she’s positive that it means that they are all suffering untold tortures, since everyone knows that the Vakarrans are evil, horrible, and do terrible things, especially to their human broodmares.
Tavik, Valdus, Caleb, and Zane are the disgraced and exiled 4th Battalion. They refused to do something terrible that Nix ordered them to do, so he exiled them. On top of that, he took Tavik’s mother and sold her into slavery. When they heard there was a human rebellion on Earth, they left their shipping business and came to Earth to see what’s what. When they get there, they meet with the 2nd and 3rd Battalions, who are mated to Kaela’s older sisters, Alaina and Danika. Kira is still out in space, under Nix’s eye with her mates. Anyway, Alaina and Danika ask the guys to go get their sister and bring her to Atlanta as well. Tavik, Valdus, Caleb and Zane are also told that Kaela can be their mate. Do you think that was her sisters that told them that or their Vakarran mates? Hmmm… I’ll let you guess.
Meanwhile, back in the forest, Kaela is doing what she can to lead the people that her sisters left entrusted to her. As the last Stryke, she knows that she has to do what she can to make sure that her people are safe and that the Vakarrans don’t get them. So when two of her people come and tell her that there have been Vakarrans sighted, she goes to the cameras that Kira set up and sees if she can trap them. After making a plan, she goes and traps the guys in a gravity trap. What she doesn’t know is that there is a way for them to defeat it, and they do. And then she gets her ass thoroughly spanked, because you know how those Vakarrans are.
You know, in most series you can choose your favorite book or your favorite heroine, but I really can’t do that here. Each of the sisters has something that makes her special, and they all have their fight and their spunk and their fire. I almost want to say Kaela’s my favorite, because of all the happenings in this book, but not everything that happens is solely because of Kaela. I will say that she is tough AF and it shows. She’s sneaky and knows how to wait and how to play people. She watches for her opportunities and she makes the most of them when she gets them. She doesn’t trust easily, figuring that her battalion are lying to her, but willing to go with them for the moment. And frankly, I don’t blame her on that. You have to remember that Kaela is the youngest, and the majority of her growing up years have been under Vakarran rule. It’s going to be really hard to believe anyone who invaded your world and has sold away all the men and enslaved all the women when they tell you that they are going to take you to your missing sisters.
I think that her guys are, I dunno what they are, there’s something different about them than from the other battalions. Maybe it’s because they aren’t in the military anymore or they have a much more personal reason to hate Nix, but there’s just something a little different about them. I like them.
I love the way that she handles Nix and what she does with the opportunity. She never hesitates about what she has to do. See, she is totally smart and I love that.
I really hope that Sara comes back to this world at some point, but I’ll be happy to read whatever she writes.
That’s all I have to say about this today. Go check out all the Vakarran books and happy reading!
