Official Summary: “There is nothing Aeris St. Cloud wants more than to win her father’s love and the acceptance of her family unit by joining the Military Academy at New Hope. But after she is captured by the fearsome space pirate, Captain Chainsword, Aerie is certain falling in love with her nation’s arch enemy is the last possible way to earn their coveted esteem.

Driven by vengeance, Exton Shepherd never set out to save anyone. As he circles the war-torn world in his pirated starship, the Perdition, he only sees his father’s ghost lurking around every corner and the looming darkness on the horizon. When Aerie unexpectedly tumbles into his life, he finds he cannot trust her, anymore than he can ignore her. But just like the raging war down on Earth, it’s tempting to think he can …

When the war ascends to the heights of the Perdition, Aerie’s loyalty, and Exton’s heart, are put to the test. But will love be enough to save them – and others – from certain destruction?” – Goodreads

Review: The Author keeps trying to convert me to romance, won’t happen. Nice try though. This was a great story, really interested to read the rest in the series. Want to know what is going to happen, how it is all going to play out. The religious side wasn’t that heavy or in your fact. It had an impact and adding an extra layer to the story.

Would have loved to see more sci-fi elements but that just me being a heavy sci-fi fan. It interesting to see the Author take on that element. It got me thinking about different possibilities.
