With their ship damaged after the attack by the Oreck, Sakota and her remaining friends are desperately in need of a settled planet. Astraeus manages to get them to another part of the universe where they crash land on a superior planet and ask for sanctuary. While they are given sanctuary they are definitely not welcomed. It becomes apparent that even the most beautiful places can hide darkness within

This is a worthy follow-up to the first book. Again, it is a well-written, multi-layered

What if...black holes could be used as Worm holes?? And what about those gravity strings...could they be used as highways between galaxies?

With an educated imagination leading us, we once again set off on a journey with author Haley Cavanagh to....worlds unknown. A multi-leveled story that captures us once again:
Level 1== great Sci-fi adventure into the future with powerful intelligent beings
Level 2==explores the feelings, trials and achievements of one viewed as worthless from the POV of the 1%

Retaliation is the continuation of Sakota and Astraeus's journey and I definitely recommend you read book one of this series "Astraeus" otherwise you will be missing an important part of this series. This is a captivating read and I had a hard time putting it down. I even bought take out for dinner so I could continue reading. I love Astraeus and Sakota's connection and how great they are for each other. Haley Cavanagh has created an amazing world filled with intriguing characters, a fantastic ...more

They say life is a series of obstacle preventing you from reading your book, and that was true in this case! And I didn’t like it because this next installment in the series is awesome! The Oreck are still around but the bad guys in this novel are more insidious and sneaky. The romance is hot and heavy (and super sweet at the same time), and the heroine just keeps kicking ass. Can’t wait to read the next one!!

Now I understand the book cover. The story continues for Sakota, Astraeus, Tatiana, and Hisoka, and things get complicated. No spoilers here. Hisoka is as sarcastic and funny as ever, and Sakota strives to exceed her own expectations of herself. Read book one if you haven't and move right on to Retaliation.

The great character and storyline development kept me totally engaged as each and every page was turned! I was so engrossed in this story that I read this book in one sitting!

A nice continuation of this story. We get to see a whole new planet and alien race in this one, which is always fun in sci-fi genres. We meet some interesting characters as well as deal with some unexpected situations. Sakota does her best to adjust in this new place while still trying to complete her main mission. Not too much romance but we see some progression in Sakota and Astraeus's relationship. Definitely be interesting to see what comes next.
