Victoria Lynn Chamberlain at age two, was abducted by an alien race, the Regulians. At nine, her world literally exploded when the Regulians returned, destroying Earth. She and her aunt were the only survivors thanks to another alien race, the Carinians. Now she's 18, a new graduate from their top medical school, and is ready to claim her life mate, Lucas. The handsome Carinian pilot that saved her all those years...cycles ago.
Major Lucas Matthew Zafar was decorated pilot for the Coalition, who has worked hard for every promotion and earned every decoration, despite his father being High Admiral. Nine cycles ago, he crashed on an alien world and discovered his life mate, a nine-cycle girl with flame-red hair and sparkling, green eyes. She captivates everyone around her with her strength and determination. She is his world or will be once she grows up. When he's injured in an explosion, he discovers that his wait is finally over for Victoria has more than grown up.
Together they discover what it truly means to be life mates. That it is about doing what is best for the other even if it is not the best for you. That you have to do more than just love, you have to trust and be willing to sacrifice the things you never thought you would. Moreover, if you are lucky, and the ancestors are watching over you, you just might get everything you've ever dreamed of.

Please change Jennifer Gll, she is a really awful narrator, when reading she seems to be shouting and does not change the tone of her voice at all. Will think twice about buying any more of her books
"Another good Space opera with a few flaws.."
I like MK Eidem's book. I'm with most here when I say the Tornian's are still my favorite. I think the only thing I've noticed of MK, is that she repeats things she's done in other books. Like the Tornian books those girls love decorating and setting up their houses. In the challenge books all the men are older men, younger woman. I don't mind it but not back to back.
I like William still from the first book. I also like Prince Baric(sp?) for some reason. Some of the things used to cause conflict between the characters came off a bit as contrived.
I like the narrators. I think the woman who does the girl parts needs to learn how to vary her voice more. They all sound the same. The guy, is a bit wooden but he is a big more varied than his partner. Still these are minor gripes. Their reading together with the added sound effects, really add a lot to the story that take these to a new level of enjoyment for me. When they are in space, the subtle noises in the back ground make you feel like they are in space. I really love that.
All in all, you really can't go wrong with one of MK's books. Especially if you enjoy other worlds, alien men, space etc. MK, has become an automatic buy for me.
"Victoria & Lucas' Have Their Story"
Hooray! Book 2 in audio & done by the same talented narration team that created M.K.'s other audiobooks. Victoria is all grown up - certainly mature beyond her years - and is ready to claim & be claimed by her lifemate, Lucas. They overcome personal obstacles to their happiness, and complete their own mission from the ancestors. It's good to have Cassandra & William still involved, and they all play a part in dealing with an added threat from within the House of Knowledge. Well worth the credit. Recommend Unreservedly.
Probably. The first book "Cassandra's Challenge" really had me hooked
I didn't really like Victoria anymore after she grew up and Lucas was not as exciting as his father William had been
I like the voice he gives Barek
I really liked the first book and have listened to it twice so I really thought the 2nd book would be better. Except for the medical aspects of the burn unit nothing else was leading the story anywhere.
"I adore this series"
The Audible version of this book takes me away every time I listen to it. I've listened multiple times! Please, don't stop writing MK Eidem! The combination of love story, scify fantasy, and adventure are tremendous!!
"I like this series a lot"
But... I wish that this one had come to a complete ending, they left a bit too much to assumption and cliffhanger for my personal preference. Besides this, it was great 2nd volume.
"Listened as an Outsider"
Another installment of Cassie and Tori's adventures, full of the F word and ridiculous sex frequency. It was hard to get into the story, as it is written in the present tense, so it sounds like a play is being read aloud. All of that aside, it does have a good story line. I was glad to see Tori grow up, but I'm not going to listen to the third book. Not invested in those characters enough to subject myself to the foul language.
"Some issues with dialog but good"
Some of the dialog is very cheesey and can do without the graphic love episodes it is a great concept but the dialog in half the book is really not that great better though than the first book in this series
It's a good read when you can follow characters from one book to another and have the characters remain true to themselves, almost like old friends. A good enjoyable read and in starting the next one as soon as I post this review.
I really loved this continued story. There is so much going on. I like how the story evolves and see that there is more towards another book. Yeah! I'll get it too.
"A love story to remember!!"
No. I love both the book and the audio
Victoria's mom. She held everyone together.
Victoria. Her brothers perform every what very lacking
Sad at first and with her parents , but it got a lot better. , but the suspense was off the chart.
The narrator who did Victorias brother was lacking. No emotion
