Read Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors #1) by Anna Hackett

Framed for a crime she didn’t commit, a wrongly-imprisoned space captain’s only chance at freedom is to abduct a fearsome alien war commander.

Sub-Captain Eve Traynor knows a suicide mission when she sees one. With deadly insectoid aliens threatening to invade Earth, the planet’s only chance of survival is to get the attention of the fierce Eon Warriors. But the Eon want nothing to do with Earth, and Eve wants nothing to do with abducting War Commander Davion Thann-Eon off his warship. But when Earth’s Space Corps threaten her sisters, Eve will do anything to keep them safe, even if it means she might not make it back.

War Commander Davion Thann-Eon is taking his first vacation in years. Dedicated to keeping the Eon Empire safe, he’s been born and bred to protect. But when he’s attacked and snatched off his very own warship, he is shocked to find himself face-to-face with a bold, tough little Terran warrior. One who both infuriates and intrigues him.

When their shuttle is attacked by the ravenous insectoid Kantos, Eve and Davion crash land on the terrifying hunter planet known as Hunter7. A planet designed to test a warrior to his limits. Now, the pair must work together to survive, caught between the planet and its dangers, the Kantos hunting them down, and their own incendiary attraction.

Just goofy fun! High paced adventure, feisty fighty heroine, ridiculous premise. Even squeezed in a cute pet. This was my first Anna Hackett and I’ll definitely try another.

A few quibbles: I suspect a little more military research would have strengthened the foundation (e.g. I didn’t buy that her family would lose a military pension from one parent because the other one sucked, the incident that got her locked up seemed…not that embarrassing? Especially considering how similar the encounter was with the bad aliens early in the story.). I don’t feel like the heroine’s gogogo attitude was conveyed in the first couple chapters, she came across more bitter and resentful. It irritated me that every sci-fi invention was written as a compound word with capitalization — BladeCutter can just be blade cutter, we know what you’re talking about, it’s sci-fi 🙄
