But after two strong-minded Earth women alter their plans, they must make hard choices about their future.
Is revenge more important than love?

★★★★★ – “This story of the juxtaposition of western and space aliens is interesting. The clash of cultures is not quite what might be expected, but it leads to an interesting read.”
★★★★★ – “I enjoyed the purely western start, and the aliens and otherworldly part fit seamlessly. An odd combination to be sure, but the author makes it work.”
★★★★★ – “I highly recommend this to everyone that is searching for a sci-fi story that they can actually relate to. Cannot wait for the next novel.”
