Summary

A new space fantasy series where the guys are hot, the perils are many, and one rebel messenger holds the key to the survival of the human race. Lies aren’t her only weapons against the fae...

In the Halow system, one of Earth’s three sister star systems, tek and magic - humans and fae - are at war. Kesh Lasota is a ghost in the machine. Invisible to tek, she’s hired by the criminal underworld to carry illegal messages through the Halow system. But when one of those messages kills its recipient, Kesh finds herself on the run with a bounty on her head and a quick-witted marshal on her tail. Proving her innocence should be straightforward. Until a warfae steals the evidence she needs. 

The fae haven’t been seen in Halow in over a thousand years. And this one - a brutally efficient killer able to wield tek - should not exist. But neither should Kesh. As Kesh’s carefully crafted lie of a life crumbles around her, she knows being invisible is no longer an option. To hunt the warfae, to stop him from destroying a thousand-year fragile peace, she must resurrect the horrors of her past. Kesh Lasota was a ghost. Now she’s back, and there’s only one thing she knows for certain: nobody shoots the messenger and gets away with it.

IMPORTANT: The Messenger series is a slow burn reverse harem. The girl doesn’t choose “one guy.” The harem elements develop during the series.

I just couldn't put it down.

This book gripped me from the start. Once I started, I found that I rarely stopped. Only for the necessities. The story keeps you guessing and learning more about the world and the mysteries that lay ahead of the protagonist, as well as those within. Overall, a joy to listen to.

Fantastic story | Poor recording quality

Luckily I’m familiar with this series, originally read the kindle version & this was intended as reread. This is a fantastic story & one of my favorite sci-fi series. The narrator’s character voice were excellent.

The big con: Poor audible quality. The recording skips & repeats at random. I’m unable to return it.

I’d recommend the series with out reservations. I’d suggest the kindle versions but would caution against wasting a credit on this audible version. Hopefully the quality will be improved soon bc it’s a shame.

I don’t know why but it’s like the book just changes half way through

Don’t get me wrong the book isn’t bad it’s just about half way through it’s like someone else started writing where it left off and all the things that makes Mc kick ass just isn’t there anymore. It’s not a bad book just dont like how mc turns out

Better than expected

I can't exactly say I liked this book but the idea was interesting with an interesting main character. Honestly my expectations were pretty low. Books in the general sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal romance categories are usually technically and creatively mediocre at best and downright insulting to all human kind at worst. This book was above average and I was truly surprised by the ending which was refreshing. I tend to prefer low drama, fun, action packed stories and this leaned more towards personal drama and political intrigue so I'll probably never listen to it again but it was still pretty good. This author has restored a tiny bit of my badly damaged faith in the publishing industry. All my best wishes to her.
