Narrated by Kirsten Potter
Too many years of hunting psychotic vampires night after night have left Rachel with a desperate need for change. So when the opportunity to travel across the galaxy aboard a Lasaran warship to a utopian planet arises, the powerful Immortal Guardian jumps at the chance. Rachel eagerly looks forward to making a fresh start… until an enemy attacks, and she ends up alone in an escape pod so far from alliance-occupied space that no one can hear her communications. No one except a renegade cyborg who shouldn’t exist.
After a grueling, hard-fought rebellion, Wonick and his cyborg brethren settled on a distant planet, where they’ve finally carved out a peaceful existence. The Aldebarian Alliance believes every Akseli cyborg died long ago. And battle-weary cyborg leader Wonick is determined to prevent anyone from discovering otherwise, knowing such would spark the fiercest manhunt in the galaxy. Yet when he hears Rachel’s communications, temptation drives him to speak to her, sparking friendship and a longing for a very different future.
Rachel finds Wonick even more appealing when she meets him in person, and the friendship they’ve formed soon deepens into love as the cyborgs—no more immune to her fun-loving, laughter-inducing nature than Wonick—cautiously welcome her into the fold. But the warriors’ unbridled ability to collect intel uncovers a secret the enemy has guarded for decades, one that compels them to embark upon a mission fraught with danger.
If they succeed, they may end the enemy’s attempts to conquer the galaxy once and for all.
If they fail, it could cost Wonick and Rachel everything.

"Man these books just keep getting better I loved Rachel and Wonick."
" Holy cow! What an amazing book! This is going to be one of my favorites!"
" This was such an amazing book!... Once you start, you won't want to put it down."
Rachel glanced toward the path she’d cut into the forest. “Okay. You can tell me all about how you escaped later. The Gathendiens will be here soon, and you all need to skedaddle so I can ambush them.” She gestured with her hands the way someone might if they were trying to shoo away an animal.
Wonick frowned. “You intend to fight them by yourself?”
“There are twenty of them.”
“And two sedapas.”
“I don’t know what that is.”
“Four-legged reptiles about your size, perhaps twice your weight, with multiple rows of sharp teeth, poisonous venom, two spiked tails, and an exceptional sense of smell that allows them to hunt and easily find prey.”
“They won’t need to use that sense of smell to find me. I left a path even a toddler could follow.”
“You did that on purpose, knowing there were twenty of them?” he nearly shouted.
“And you planned to fight them all yourself?”
“Yes. Why? Is someone else coming? Whoever was holding you maybe? Are they hunting you like the Gathendiens are hunting me? Because maybe we can pit them against each other, then pick off whoever’s left standing. That might actually be pretty entertaining.”
Wonick could only stare at her.
