In this thrilling and sexy sci-fi fantasy romance from USA Today bestselling author Amanda Bouchet, a space pirate and her charming rebel face off against unimaginable odds. They never wanted to be heroes, but pulling off the impossible is what they do best.
Captain Tess Bailey and rebel Shade Ganavan top the galaxy’s Most Wanted list for more than one ruthless bounty hunter. With revolution in the wind and the universe on the brink of catastrophic war, their situation couldn’t be more desperate. But that doesn’t stop rebel leaders from sending them on another dangerous mission: a prison break that could alter worlds.
The clock is ticking. As their attraction builds and secrets are revealed, Tess and Shade must decide if they trust each other enough to execute the challenge before them. Together they could change the course of history, but to do so, they’ll risk everything…their lives, their freedom, and a growing connection neither can live without.

What an adventure!
I love watching Sci Fi movies but I don't usually grab a Sci Fi book to read. This author has proved that I would enjoy that read just as much as watching the movie.
On that note, this should be made into a movie. I would love to see these characters come alive. I could really visualize these scenes as they were happening and I think it would make for an exciting movie.
Just like the first book, this gripped me from the very beginning, we learn a few secrets and we get a ton of nail biting action. There is just constant danger lurking everywhere and that made for a storyline that you just couldn't predict.
That ending was killer, but I am a little confused. It almost felt like the end, but there is also so much more that can happen. I'm hoping I just interpreted that epilogue wrong cause I really want to see more.
Didn’t appreciate the shifting point of view and Shade’s constant angst and desperation.

Starbreaker by Amanda Bouchette
2nd book in the Endeavor series. Science fiction romance adventure. Rebels against the Dark Watch and Overseer. A female Captain fighting for the poor. Best to read the first book, Nightchaser, for the extensive world building.
Zero to sixty percent was a bit slow. More romance and relationships. Sweet while building up the galaxy and back story of Shade. 61% to the end was a race of desperation, of fighting, planning, escaping, fear, death, fighting, and trying to prevent the mad man from winning.
The secondary characters have depth and individuality.
This is an ongoing adventure that is clearly not yet finished. I look forward to reading more adventures of the Endeavor’s crew.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.
