Review: Sean and Yana are back, with Sean just completing his training to become an agent of the Peace Keepers and Yana settling into semi-retirement. Their relationship is going strong, but Sean begins to have concerns on their first mission together and then Yana’s ex shows up causing waves… but, the worst for both of them is Sean’s disappearance, can Yana get to Sean in time?

This is a great novella giving us a look into the life of Yana and Sean as they go on missions and resolve personal difficulties. Yana and Sean are a great couple. their relationship is going well and Sean is about to go on his first mission, but Yana voices his doubts when he hears the Krill’s might be heading in the same direction which makes Sean feel like Yana doesn’t really believe in his abilities. Later, on a break on Earth, Yana’s ex sticks his nose in and Sean leaves Yana.  Luckily, Aaron and Noel stage an intervention. Then Sean is kidnapped and Yana must save him, but will Sean ever recover?

Quite a bit of action and excitement with arguments and recriminations, misunderstandings and forgiveness are in this story. We have the wonderful Yana and Sean and although their relationship is great, it is about to hit a very rocky patch. Not only that, but Yana’s concern makes Sean feel as though he is incapable of his new job and then we have the kidnapping, which is quite heart-breaking for Yana and very disturbing for Sean. I quite liked the way we could have a peek into Yana and Sean’s lives and the action of the missions was really good. Sean’s reaction to the ex was completely over the top though and I think Yana forgave him too quickly. I would have made him stew for a lot longer.

So, I recommend this to those who love sci-fi, action, danger, personal conflict, over the top reactions, very forgiving natures and a happy ever after.
