    Good bad guys

    What do you get if you mix up a big and evil empire, their most hated executioner, a gang of rebels, and a lost girl? It becomes "Kidnapped." It's a good story that feels original and fresh. It has all the ingredients necessary to be interesting. There's romance, cruelty, love, treachery, and pain.

    As cute as parts of it are with heroine curled up in heroes lap and so on, romance isn't what will make this author famous. It's the bad guys and her willingness to write about things that make you flinch. 

    The supreme commander is marvellous and could have gotten a much bigger part in the book. Just imagine a woman who takes an electric knife and saws someone's arm off to set an example! Now, it doesn't stop there. In order to save the heroine, the hero has to do it again, by himself. It's so perfectly wicked that it makes you wonder what else is brewing in the author's brain. 

    Tricia is okay, she's a good heroine, but I love Travis and Veronica. The book hints at their past, and I'm hoping for a prequel that explores said past in every gruesome detail!

    A Riveting Quest Of Love And Adventure That Spans The Stars.

    Driving home one late winter's night, Patricia Risden is shocked when a man appears on the road out of nowhere in front of her car...as if that isn't strange enough, the next thing she knows, she's being held hostage on an interstellar spaceship - and interrogated by a disfigured, highly intimidating man speaking an unintelligible language. All the confusion is soon cleared up, though, when Patricia's captor realizes that he's kidnapped her in error while in the midst of hunting down the mysterious stranger who appeared in front of her car; however, when he decides to let her go, he sets off a fateful chain of events that will ultimately impact both their lives in ways they can hardly imagine...

    With taut, escalating action, Kidnapped is a thoroughly intriguing read. Combining elements of romance and Sci-Fi, author Maria Hammarblad has crafted a compelling tale of cosmic significance, taking the reader on a riveting quest of love and adventure that spans the stars. By invoking an understated sympathy for Travis, Patricia's captor, Hammarblad draws the reader into the soft emotional underbelly of her story, which ostensibly rails against the evils of an overly authoritative governing force. In so doing, she strikes a solid balance that lends her tale the credible weight it needs to evolve to a natural, satisfying end.

    Strangely engrossing, Kidnapped is an enjoyable tale of action and romance.
