This story was the bomb. After my experience with The Lasaran, I had high expectations for The Segonian and Duvall did not fail in her delivery. Add in the narration by Kirsten Potter and I found myself transported to a fascinating world filled with danger, romance, humour and wonderful discoveries.
The Segonian, which told Eliana and Dagons’ story began where The Lasaran ended. The reader received a brief introduction to Eliana, an Immortal Guardian, in The Lasaran and was delighted with her vivacious and protective nature.
The first twenty percent took me on quite an emotional journey. This aspect of the story was so emotionally charged that even though I knew the outcome would be favourable, it brought tears to my eyes.
Spending time with Eliana proved a delightful experience. A warrior at heart, who lived for a battle and not afraid to kick her enemies’ asses. She was courageous, resourceful, strong, honest, outspoken and knows how to roll with the punches. Several times throughout the story she had me laughing out loud. I enjoyed her interactions with Dagon and his crew members.
I enjoyed getting to know Commander Dagon, who was the epitome of a true gentleman. I admired the respect he showed Eliana. A strong but aloof leader who gained the respect of the men he commanded due to his stellar leadership skills. I adored the romance which developed between he and Eliana. Passionate, steamy, sprinkled with a dollop of sweetness. Dagon and Eliana balanced each other, which made them the perfect couple.
The story ended on a cheerful note. However, the threat to the galaxies, including earth, is ever present.
Listening to the audio version for this title enhanced my enjoyment of the story. Kirsten Potter did an excellent job in her portrayal of each of the characters. She brought the story to life by injecting the perfect balance of emotions and tension into the narrative.
If you are looking for a new series to dive into, then look no further. The Aldebarian Alliance series has proven to be a wonderful treat. So, whether you choose to listen or read, this would make a great addition to your library.
