really liked it

I read this book without reading the first two in the series. I had no issues with understanding the characters or universe. It's told from the alternating POVs of the two main characters, Zain and Korbin.

I can't write much of a review without spoiling an interesting aspect of the universe that's not mentioned in the book blurbs. (I'm sure other reviews will do that for you.) Let's just say that I found the process of the MCs getting to know each other interesting and well written.

This is a story about taking down slave traders and rescuing slaves, so there is a Master/slave power exchange element to it, though Zain and Korbin don't actually have a Master/slave relationship. Outside of the mission they are more or less equals; they are, however, posing as Master and slave to infiltrate a retreat/slave auction. As is the case with slave universes, there are issues of non-consent and dubious consent. I want to say these touches felt quite mild to me, but as I have no issue with reading such, my opinion is likely skewed, thus those who do have a problem with reading issues of consent should use caution. (view spoiler)

Quite an enjoyable read. I'll likely go back and read the first books in the series as well. =)
