BOOK REVIEW- THE COMMANDERS CAPTIVE by Alix Nichols
He saved her life. But he must hold her captive. Screaming and kicking. Hating him. Craving him…
Lady Nyssa Sebi lost her parents in a freak accident.
Her brother is unjustly condemned to death.
Locked away in Commander Heidd’s residence, Nyssa is the hostage of corrupt thugs who rule the land.
Oh, how she hates them!
But the one she abominates above all is her captor.
During the war, Heidd was her brother’s commanding officer. He was Nyssa's idol, her biggest crush…
Until he betrayed everyone.
Commander Jancel Heidd sacrificed his honor to protect Nyssa.
It’s killing him to see her so miserable, so disgusted with him.
But she’s safe.
Jancel will do anything to keep it that way.
He’ll shield his spunky captive from the depraved police chief, the ruthless governor, and the deadly cyborgs.
The only monster he can’t save her from is himself.
THE COMMANDER’S CAPTIVE is the second novel in a series of connected sci fi romances. This volume features Nyssa and Jancel’s complete story, and concludes Etana and Areg’s (THE TRAITOR’S BRIDE). AMAZON 4.5 STARS
All right the story continues and it gets even better! This winds up what happens to Areg and Etana but who knows maybe there could be more about them in future stories. Maybe they will have future adventures. But it's done for now. I do have to say that when we first find out what happened to Areg in this book, it's a doozy. It's a major surprise! But this book is mainly about Jancel and Nyssa, so I will get on with it.
There is plenty of action, secrets and danger in this book. But it's also about Nyssa fighting her attraction to Jancel because she's fully convinced he's a traitorous dog. Even though he seems to be protecting her, where was he when it came to protecting her much beloved brother? But Jancel has been keeping secrets too, but its because he has to in order to protect others.
There are several good secondary characters in the book but I do have one question? When is Chief Ultek going to get his? A truly bad guy in the story but he isn't the only one. So you can see there are others that need to be taken down and they weren't...yet. But I enjoyed this book and see it as a happily ever after for now ending. There are more adventures to come is the way I see it.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
