    Misunderstandings & betrayal drive the plot

    Sam is a kick-a** captain. A selfless but rough-tough go-getter.

    Griffin is the leader of his genetically altered people, who had been left to thrive or die on their own.

    What happens when an Earthling captain and a DNA altered individual meet? Well... cultural misunderstandings, life-death challenges, technological fiascos, and.... love!

    At the beginning, I really liked how Sam & Griffin came together. I especially enjoyed how Samantha proved herself to Griffin's people. How do you convince a bunch of warriors that you are not a doormat? You challenge them to match of skill & strength. And, of course, may the best 'wo'man win!

    Initially, I was upset by an upbrupt change to Sam & Griffin's relationship that occurs mid-way through the story. But after taking some time to think about it I realized that the way the author presented it, was truly something that would occur when two seemingly natural enemies come together. Everyone has their honeymoon period before, inevitably, real-life intrudes, misunderstandings occur, trust is tested, etc...

    Griffin, like most men (sorry guys!) IS a guy. He will suffer from self-doubt. He will trust those who have always been closest to him, and he will NOT ask the questions of the one who could actually answer them. He will create a mountain from a mole-hill, skew his own understanding & create his own problems. Frankly, after how he treated Samantha I'm surprised that the author didn't allow her to smack Griffin upside his head. The issues that he created by his mistrust I don't feel would have been able to be overcome or mended, but, of course, they were.

    Samantha was a great heroine. Strong, skilled, caring, & no nonsense ; ) I did find a little fault with how easily she gave in to Griffin after their 'misunderstanding', but then again, she didn't have much choice. I won't say why because it would offer a spoiler.

    Overall, I thought it was an intriguing read and very enjoyable. But, can I smack Griffin around a bit? Please?
