The second book in Michelle’s Divinity Warriors series starts at the same place the first book did. Readers follow Jayne instead of Lilith from the point of waking in a prison cell. I liked how the two books ran parallel to each other following the same time line and events, but through two different relationships. This also allows for readers to pick up either of the books to begin their journey into this series.

Jayne is the type of heroine that I like to read. She is a fighter, literally. She had a rough life growing up and it lead her into a career as a boxer. She is a very successful boxer. The rough life has left her with some emotional problems though. She doesn’t let people get close to her. She has also created some impenetrable walls around her heart. Life has made her learn to keep her freedom at any costs. She has always lived by the motto to stay free or die trying.  

Ronen believes that the gods have cursed him and his brother. The women that come into their lives seem to want to run from them. Ronen couldn’t believe that a female claimed him at the breeding ceremony. Males do the claiming in Staria. Ronen is a pleasant mix of dominant alpha male and gentle warrior. He does what he thinks is best to keep Jayne happy. The problem with that is his world has never had a female like Jayne. Females are supposed to be docile, gentle, soft and caring.

I absolutely love the futuristic sci fi feel of this series. Jayne comes from a very technologically advanced world. Traveling through dimensional planes has taken her to a plane that a fantasy historical like feel to it. So readers get many different sub genres in one book.

Favorite quote and it also sums up their courtship, Jayne to Ronen.
“It is in me to run and it is in you to capture.”
