    Wow! When does the movie come out?!

    Just finished Enemy Within. Can't wait for the sequel. I hear the second book in the series is due out soon, but it can't come soon enough. I'm hoping to see more of the compelling characters introduced in this book. Love the new romance/sci-fi format introduced by Marcella. I couldn't put the book down. I was so enthralled by it, my husband is reading it now. Highly recommend this as a quick read that will keep you turning the pages anxious to see what happens next.

    A Major Good Read!

    This novel grabs the reader from the first sentence, is difficult to put down before finishing, and leaves one wanting more when it ends. (Thank goodness another installment of the adventures of the intrepid Ari is coming out in May!) The plot moves along smoothly and is filled with twists that keep the reader thinking while the characters, especially Captain Alexandria (Ari) Rose, are well developed and engage the reader emotionally. This is Sci-Fi at its best with romance included, and the narrative demonstrates that even people shattered by the most horrible of situations can overcome the damage inflicted and come out with their basic goodness intact. There are books that engage the reader and others that have an optimistic message about human nature, but only exceptional books do both. This is the first work of an author who is going to be a force in the field of futuristic romance.

    This is a terrific romantic science fiction thriller

    The Chekydran capture Captain Alexandria "Ari" Idylle and torture her. Amazingly they not only fail to kill her, but they release her. She returns home, but not to a hero's welcome; as everyone she knows and some in the shadows she does not know assume the enemy tinkered with her brain. Even her loved ones believe the Chekydran played with her mind and therefore feel unsafe near her. She realizes her military career is dead as her superiors assume she has been brainwashed and thus a security risk.

    She is forced to remain on her father's science ship as a sort of escape from the distrustful looks. However pirates led by Captain Cullin Seaghdh take over the vessel. However, she suspects there is more to the pirate than simple looting especially as they flee a Chekydran assault ship. In fact, he stalks her like others including her former military superiors who implanted a bomb in her head that can be detonated from a distance. Though attracted to him, she knows not trust no one.

    This is a terrific romantic science fiction thriller that brings to life hostilities between two races fighting to dominate the galaxy with each side using nefarious tricks and willing to sacrifice loyal citizens to gain a check in the Outer Space game of chess that seems about to turn uglier. Although the climax contains repugnant sexual abuse that readers will insist is worse than to chewing on a Nurellan lemon berry, sub-genre fans will enjoy this strong space saga, which reminds the audience of the dirty tricks of the Cold War.
