The novel is told from the perspective of Andi, the main female character. As we get to know Andi before meeting Tom, she's ambitious and smart. Never lucky in love but Andi does what she needs to do for the sake of the company without regard to her own comfort. Scott weaves in Zulaire as it is as much a part of the main character as the story. Zulaire is earth-like in a less populous and yet more advanced way. The people of the planet are rich with ritualism and a stringent class structure that the war aims to topple.
Tom Deverane is a strong character. Alpha male and tough. He has a secret that he shares with Andi early on and Scott writes the childhood trauma with raw and stoic emotion that takes the breath away. Andi spots early on the softness at his core when he allows her to run into a burning building in an attempt to save the children she thought would be there. When he tells us of his past she knows that Tom will only need slight persuasion when next they come upon a chance to save a life, as he'd never leave someone he could save behind. Readers will melt at his brash exterior and soft core. Andi isn't there to be swept off and saved though. What happens when Tom needs her? Will she turn her back or stand by his side? The moment Scott takes in the story for this twist further bond the reader to Tom and Andi. Scott has an affinity for saving others, especially children, in her stories. In the case of Escape From Zulaire, the children saved aren't directly in the care of a main character but they are not forgotten. They must be cared for and brought to safety.
I loved Escape From Zulaire. The novel was an action-packed ride through a dangerous place in a horrible time. Glimmers of good shine through this story. Highly recommend for romance readers and those readers who love a good sci-fi read.
