Blurb: The fight to eradicate the Tash’Ba breeding stations continues, with spunky Commander Berit Turner and his Nadisc mate, Tom, in the thick of things. Sometimes it seems as though they’ll never locate and destroy them all. And there’s always the fear that the Tash’Ba have something else, something worse—if that’s even possible—lurking ahead.
As if things aren’t bad enough, Berit’s less than stellar past is threatening to bite him in the ass, and they’ve received alarming new information. The Tash’Ba queen needs to use Earth as a place to hatch the egg of her successor. And if what she says is true, the new queen will be even more voracious and cruel than her predecessor.
Berit, along with his team—Tom, Carson, Niyara, and Fleur—must do everything in their power to stop her.
If they fail, Earth will be lost forever.

Review: Well this was another rollercoaster ride from start to finish. Smartass Berit, his mate Tom, and best friend Carson with his mate Niyara, are still fighting to destroy the breeding stations of the Tash’Ba queen. Each one seems to be getting worse than the last one as the beast seem to be changing and becoming more vicious and cunning.
This time more is revealed as they learn the Queen is heading to Earth and her plans for it. Also traitors are among the humans.
This was so fast paced. I was just turning the pages to find out what would happen next. I was engrossed from start to finish seeing what more was in store for Berit and his mate and friends. And plus to see what next off the wall comment Berit would say.
Berit really is a favorite character of mine. He is so over the top at times and really cannot keep his mouth shut. Berit also does not see himself as strong or really all that brave. But his biggest strength is that he keeps doing it and keeps fighting.
Tom and Berit’s relationship has grown some too. Berit still is not completely comfortable with everything. But he is also making an effort to learn. He is willing to give Tom things he needs. Berit understands that the Nadisc are protective and possessive of their mates. Sometimes Tom needs reassurances too and maybe just to be asked if something Berit is about to do is OK. And yes there is more tail sex, which is still surprisingly hot.
I felt this book tied things up nicely on one hand, but also left enough unanswered questions about Berit and other situations that I see at least another book being needed. Or at least I want more.
I truly enjoy the interactions of these characters and the world the author has created. I want to know more about how Berit and Tom’s relationship progresses and how the other relationship of his friends go.
