Description

Rescue might just be the death of her.

Far from home

Fiona Russell has been snatched from Earth, imprisoned, and used as slave labor, but nothing about her abduction makes sense. When she's rescued by the Grih, she realizes there's a much bigger game in play than she ever could have imagined, and she's right in the middle of it.

Far from safe

Battleship captain Hal Vakeri is chasing down pirates when he stumbles across a woman abducted from Earth. She's the second one the Grih have found in two months, and her presence is potentially explosive in the Grih's ongoing negotiations with their enemies, the Tecran. The Tecran and the Grih are on the cusp of war, and Fiona might just tip the balance.

Far from done

Fiona has had to bide her time while she's been a prisoner, pretending to be less than she is, but when the chance comes for her to forge her own destiny in the new world she's found herself in, she grabs it with both hands. After all, actions speak louder than words.

Love, love, LOVE this series!

Fiona Russell was kidnapped from Earth by aliens, but now the aliens don't know what to do with her. She's trouble if she's found on their ship, so they drop her off on a cargo vessel where she is subsequently disguised and used as slave labor. Waiting for an opportunity to escape the abusive captain and his thugs, she's even willing to run off with yet another scary alien race, but they run off without her. What's a girl to do?

Fortunately, the next aliens she meets are . . . but that would be telling!

Don't miss this second book of the series, but make sure you start with the first!

Christina Delaine's performance is pitch perfect for this wonderful series!

This is a treasure!

Credit worthy? You bet!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (For anyone who loves great writing, great characters, sci fi/romance, and lots of action. So. Much. Fun!)

Not as good as the first in series

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Dark Horse, this one almost felt like the same story, different characters. Not particularly impressed.

Why cant they all be this good?!?!?

I couldn’t get the book to whispersync to my kindle at all!! And I’ll be complaining about that later! They (Amazon) get u used to not having to turn your own pages and then take it away. Aside from that it was great!!! It completely overshadowed the difficulty I had. The book was good the voices ...simply bring out that quality! the narrator ... brings this to life !!! It’s hard to get good narrators for good sci-fi books. You’ve got narrating and then you have those narrators that your a crew member on the ship watching all this go down!! I’ll be checking into other books she’s narrated.

More action, adventure & romance in sci-fi space.

There were some moments in this story that was very similar to the first story, but by the second half that starts wane and the action, adventure really gains momentum. I like how there is an excerpt of the next book at the end of Dark Horse and Dark Deeds, it really makes you want to get the next book in the series immediately to find out what happens. To me this is an ingenious way to get the reader to by the next book, especially if they are on the cusp of deciding when to get it. I really liked the friendship that the AI and Fiona created and can't wait to find out what happens in the next book. Defiantly need to read this book in order to get the full effect. Narrator is good, and I would be happy to listen to her again anytime. With the Whispersync all three books are less than a credit and worth the price.

Issue with character development

The characters types from book two are too similar to the first book. I would say all the personas are the same, just with different names and slightly different environments. Same character romance tension, same abuse backstory, and same mentalities (main female, main male, and AI) to the first book.
Not worth reading.
Just like the first book it over emphasizes the victim mentality and the go go girl power “I can stand up for myself”, man wants female —> man should deny himself said female...
It’s hard for me to get into a story that over explains the plots/issues the characters are going through. Yes we know why you walk through the door you don’t need to tell us why you walked through the door. (Not a real example from the book).
Lastly, the unrealistic dialogue people use to covertly explain what’s going on in the series.

A science fiction masterpiece!

I absolutely loved “Dark Horse”, the first audiobook of this “Class 5” trilogy, but this second audiobook surpassed my expectations. There was even more thrilling action and suspense while keeping the same level of depth that “Dark Horse” had. There are so many moving parts to this space opera: artificial intelligence, multiple cultures, political secrets, attempted murder, space battles, language, etc. The author weaves the perfect, internally cohesive, sci-fi action/suspense with a dash of romance.

The narrator Christina Delaine did such a perfect, superb performance! She makes each of the many characters sound distinctive, and she is fantastic with both male and female voices. Her pacing is incredible. Everything she did rocked! I think that Christina Delaine is just as good as my favorite narrator, Robert Petkoff, and that is very high praise.

An Earth Woman, a Class5 Ship & an Alien, episode2

Surprise! Or not. The Tecran stole another "Orange", a previously unknown advanced sentient species. Fiona Russell is an Earth architect stolen just after Rose McKenzie disappeared from the same area. When things heat up for the Tecran, Fiona is offloaded to a Garmann commercial freighter. Rose serves as an abused dockworker until she is rescued by Grih battleship Capt Hal Vakeri & his team. She is then kidnapped, saves a Thinking System, has an adventure at a secret Tecran base, & saves the Larga Ways space station.

All 3 current books in the Class 5 Series feature an Earth woman who is kidnapped by an alien race, the Tecran, but is "rescued" by a Grih Captain, another alien race. She also has a special relationship with an AI entity slaved into a Class 5 warship, is given special clothes, & a special weapon. This is the launching point for the M/F/AI characters to have their own adventures, which then link & overlap in a larger story arc. Books 2&3 are 65% plot driven, 25% character driven and 10% romance; book 1 had more suspense & romance.

Well worth the time and money.

Love the series

I am having a blast with this series. The 'Oranges' and the Class 5 computers are great pairs. Never know what they will do. Good reading!

I see a pattern here...

There really is little wrong with this book. It was interesting and suspenseful, just like the first one. However, the main character's personality is identical to the 1st book, and when I listened to the start of the next one (thank you Audible for the previews you offer), it was again the same. The main characters all happen to find it a breeze to learn multiple alien languages, all clever in a crisis, willing to talk back to anyone, they're bitter in the same way,
etc. It's too bad because there's so much right with the stories and the whole concept. Perhaps the 3rd book is different, but I didn't hear more than the preview. Narration is good.
