Captain Tess Bailey and Shade Ganavan are still the galaxy's Most Wanted, and with revolution in the wind and the universe on the brink of catastrophic war, the situation couldn't be more desperate. Despite the Dark Watch scouring the known sectors for them, rebel leaders have handed the crew of the Endeavor a delicate and dangerous mission: b ...more
The escape to a galaxy far, far away was never more tempting, since the world seems intent on destroying itself nowadays. And Amanda Bouchet gives you exactly what you need: adventure, high-stakes missions, strong friendships and a couple to set the universe on fire (I just hope that her story is not prophetic, and that the colonization of other planets and moons is not the only way to get rid of the pandemic).

2nd book in the Endeavor series. Science fiction romance adventure. Rebels against the Dark Watch and Overseer. A female Captain fighting for the poor. Best to read the first book, Nightchaser, for the extensive world building.
Zero to sixty percent was a bit slow. More romance and relationships. Sweet while building up the galaxy and back story of Shade. 61% to the end was a race of desperation, of fighting, planning, escaping, fear, death, fighting, and trying to ...more
I had a really good time with this book. This is the second book in the Nightchaser series which is a series that is best read in order since this book picks up shortly after the events of the first installment. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was pretty eager to see what Tess and Shade would face in this installment. I found this book to be enjoyable from beginning to end.

On that note, this should be made into a movie. I would love to see these characters come alive. I could really visualize these scenes as they were happening and I think it would make for an exciting movie.

One of the things that I really appreciated about Nightchaser, is that Tess and Shade had a real relationship struggle. As we learned in the last book, Shade had previously been a bounty hunter for the Dark Watch. And they both know it’s quite likely he’d “apprehended” friends of Tess, fellow Nightchasers. Tess, naturally, finds it difficult to get past this. ...more

Starbreaker, the second book in the Endeavor trilogy, is an exciting, action-packed, futuristic adventure that keep me enthralled from beginning to end.
The Endeavor team are a small band of rebels lead by Captain Tess Bailey, previously revealed as Quintessa Novalight. Tess is a brilliant, intelligent, and compassionate character, the type of heroine I can stand up for and would want as a friend if she were real. Too often “badass warrior women” are caricatures who come across as ...more

As with book one, this was a fast-paced read, for all nearly 500 pages of it. Sometimes, I felt like I had to hold on tight with the drama and I let it sweep me along; that’s not a negative, just a sense of the tension this read brings.
I knew in book one that there was som ...more
Y’all. This was good. So, so good. Like grab you from the first page and keep you reading right up until the last page good. Like stay up until 2:30 in the morning good. (Yes, I did that.) I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was super excited for this next installment, but Ms. Bouchet takes this series to the next level in Starbreaker.
For starters, the when the book opens the Nightchaser crew of the Endeavor are ma ...more
If you enjoyed Nightchaser than you will be overjoyed to discover that this book is even better ! Tess and Shade are a couple who are making great strides in their relationship but it's never going to be easy as Shade nearly betrayed Tess before. Still they are both learning what it really means to trust each other and their latest job of rescuing a scientist has them facing quite the grand adventure ! If Tess had doubts about Shade then they are nothing compared to her conflictin ...more

Starbreaker continues the story of Tess Bailey, who is a very fierce heroine. Like the previous book Nightchaser, this one is also action-packed, romantic at the right moments, and suspenseful. The trust between Tess and her love interest Shade was broken, but they both are trying to deal with them in this book. I loved seeing them grow stronger as individuals and as a couple. They are such a great and strong match. I also enjoyed g ...more

I had so much fun reading this book. It was fast-paced, action-packed, sexy and full of the feels.
My one note on the previous book was that it lacked actual time in space, since they spent most of their time in just one planet. Therefore I was very glad that we visited so many new planets and moons and ships. ugh it was so cool.
Tess was as cool as always. a super badass space captain who knew what she was capable of and embraced her duty to save the universe. But I also like ...more
Review copy was received from NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Whoa! Buckle up; this rollercoaster takes off like a rocket and never runs out of fuel! As the Endeavor series continues, I wondered how Tess and Shade would develop and Shade's integration with the rest of her crew. I was glad to see them have a little time alone - BAM - no time for that - there's an impossible miss ...more

“Don’t make fun of me.”
I put my hand over my heart. “I would never.”
Tess’s scowl didn’t fool me. The humor in her eyes told the real story. “They’ll eat you first. More muscle.”
“If it keeps you alive, I’m happy to sacrifice my biceps.”
