Description

"Amanda Bouchet blasts off with a series that's full of heart, humor, romance, and action." (Jennifer Estep, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of Kill the Queen)

Tess Bailey: the galaxy's most wanted.

Captain Tess Bailey is in deep trouble. She and her crew are on the run, pursued by a tyrant who'll take them dead or alive. Tess's best hope is a tall, dark, and much-too-appealing stranger, Shade Ganavan, who says he can help her. But his motivations are far from clear....

Shade Ganavan: arrogance, charm...and that special something that makes you want to kick him.

With the dreaded Dark Watch closing in, what Tess and Shade don't know about each other might get them killed...unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other before it's too late.

Mixed review

I really like the story and the narrator is terrific. My f...bomb filter was on overdrive! The author clearly has a very limited vocabulary and pretty exclusively uses the f...work as her choice for most adjectives, adverbs and a lot of verbs. I get a little for highly inflammatory situations but this was like verbal assault. The story is really good and a really nice twist for space opera, just wish for less crusty language.

Not great

I enjoyed the characters and the plot, but the way the author writes romance is cringeworthy. There are good ways of portraying immediate attraction, and then there's... this. I rolled my eyes many, many times.

Awesome!

This is Book #1 of an anticipated three-book series. If this series is anything like Amanda Bouchet's Kingmaker Chronicles series, I am super excited! As for NIGHTCHASER, this was an awesome start!

I was provided an ARC through NetGalley but didn't have a chance to read it until after the holidays and by that time the book had already been released. I made the mistake of beginning to read this book in the evening. Once I started, I couldn't sleep and I really regretted not reading this book sooner. When I had to go run errands the next morning, I dreaded the thought of not being able to sit and read to find out what happens next. The storyline was so exciting! So I purchased the Audible version of the book. Seriously. Even though I had a free copy of the book, I still purchased the Audible copy. And I'm so glad I did. I listened to the rest of the book while I drove! Great narration! Susan Bennett did an amazing job with the narration, changing her voice for each individual character, and portraying the emotion at each moment throughout the book.

Such awesome characters! And the romance was hot! Tess is a strong, determined lady with a soft side for children and kitty's. Her crew, Big Guy and Shade were all terrific. But who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? You'll have to read this book to find out because I'm not giving away any spoilers! Loved it! Highly recommend for Sci-Fi Romance fans!

A slow start gave way to an engaging read.

I am not going to lie, this started really slow for me. In fact at one point I almost DNF’d the audiobook. I think it was a combination of a few things. First, I recently listened to Polaris Rising, which was phenomenal and second the story started out disjointed and I couldn’t get my footing. I will say the second half of the book was stronger and I ended up slipping in.
We meet, Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of damaged, misfit thieves as they escape with stolen cargo from a military superpower whose general (apparently Tess’s father) wants the contents returned. There is now a bounty on her head. They escape and end up on a planet in another solar system but their ship is badly damaged.

Tess hires Shade Ganavan to make the repairs and this is where things get complicated. The story that unfolds is heavy on romance with suspenseful threads. Shade and Tess have sizzling chemistry, but both have secrets and don’t act right away. Mixed singles followed by explosive heat and these two need to make decisions.

What Tess doesn’t know is that Shade is a bounty hunter. He is trying to garnish funds to win back his family’s business. Bringing Tess in could restore everything. He struggles with this internally just as Tess struggles to let him into her inner circle of trust. Both threads felt genuine as did their off the chart moments.

I enjoyed all the characters, Shade in particular, but it took me a while to warm up to and understand Tess. Again the struggle was in the first half.

The second half of the book was intense with plenty of action and confrontation with the enemy. We finally get details on this world, Tess’s upbringing and what makes Tess different. It could turn the tides and end her father’s tyranny.

Susan Bennett did a stellar job with the narration and helped me pull through the first half. I felt she captured Tess and Shade from their chemistry to personalities.

my kind of atmosphere

Wow. Was I intrigued by this book. I didn't know what was going to happen so it kept me on my toes. I enjoyed all the characters. And the relationships with each other. I can not wait to read the next book. It will be a definite buy.

No spoilers

I stumbled across this book and keep coming back to it, so i gave the book and the author a try. I've never read/listen to a book that is about space so I have nothing to compare it to, but I read/listen a LOT of books. MS Bouchet has written the beginning of a good series. You will start with suspense and move to some back ground on the characters and mix in some budding romance with hot moments to more suspense some mystery in there and some chuckles. Don't get me wrong I liked it but it was a bit slow in a few spots a bit to much inner thinking with Tess. However I will get the next book. MS Bennett was the narrator she did a fantastic job. Told the story with so much emotion and brought each and every character to full life. I swear I was listening to a movie. That doesn't happen very often. Highly recommend this narrator. Over all i'm hooked to this series can't wait to find out what happened next. Bring it on.

Another great Amanda Bouchet Story.

I love this characters as much as the Kingmaker. And I love the way Susan Bennett narrated it.
