Publisher's Summary

Evelyn's deeds are coming back to haunt her.

Free to travel among the stars, the former warlord is enjoying her freedom, even if she’s occasionally exasperated by the women who’ve attached themselves to her. They accompany her as she encounters wonders, from dryad terraforming ships to the orcish arenas of Skaloth.

Yet Evelyn has enemies, and they have not forgotten her. They target one of the few people she truly cares about, knowing that Evelyn will come. When she does she may be drawn into a trap from which even she can’t escape.

Loving this series

Benjamin Medrano, this is a wonderful second book in the series but I think Evelyn might need a bigger ship as her crew continues to grow hehehe. Once again you have given me an enjoyable story to delve into. Thank you.

Abby, once again you are awesome. Your voice always brings a wonderfully written story to life.

The transition from book 1 to book 2 in the Eve of Destruction series was perfect and I will fidget every day waiting for book 3.

In this book, it is proven that Evelyn is not the only powerful being around and that under the right circumstances and with the right weaponry she could be killed, but not easily. The ending of this book in the series makes for a perfect lead into the upcoming book 3 that we will have to wait impatiently for.

I love how Benjamin continues developing the different personalities of the characters and expanding on the role each of them plays as part of Evelyn’s crew. Utilizing and developing their abilities to make them more effective members of the team.

As the series continues, I look forward to seeing how Vania and her guards integrate more fully into the story and how the relationship between Vania and Evelyn develops.

What will Ilyra do with the data that will prove that she is of noble birth? Will she go back to her old life or continue being part of Evelyn’s crew? We will likely bring this subplot to a conclusion in the upcoming book 3 or in a later book of the series one way or another.

Fya continues to make very good comic relief with her mischief. I giggle at her antics and total devotion to her friend.

I get a feeling that little ten-year-old Natalia will grow into a rather powerful mage as the series continues if she is as determined as she appears to be.

The story of Evelyn has so far been a wonderful ride and I for one am looking forward to much more to come.

Prepare to lose some sleep

I couldn't put it down. The action scenes, characters and world building kept me wanting for the next chapter.

Lost in editing

Fun characters in a good story.
Good sound quality and excellent performance, but alas a few editing mistakes. On several occasions the segue between two lines was stilted as though an entire line was missing. This was evident in both sound quality and the lines read themselves where a monologue or explanation just stopped awkwardly. This happened maybe 4 or 5 times. Not enough to ruin the book.

Dang. This was a ride.

After the first book, I wasn't sure where this one could go. But I was indeed pleasantly surprised. This had lots of space opera adventures, actual stakes and danger, and some people who desperately needed it got the justice they deserved.
I can hardly wait for book 3. I'm actually most likely to buy the ebook and read it, then revisit this and the first book again when it comes out in audio.
Bravo.

Mary Sue

MC is a Mary Sue through and through. Story is good but worldbuilding is done through poor exposition.

great story but needs romance

The author does a great job of building up character relationships in his writing. however, when it comes to actually writing romance he forgoes all details. it's quite frustrating to listen to or read. this author would be my favorite of all time if he wasn't such a prude.

SO. GOOD.

I am devastated that there isn't a third book yet! This series is incredible! There is nothing that I don't love about it, and Abby Craden is perfect.
I'm trying really hard to not fangirl too hard and type in all caps..
I'm going to go buy the physical copies of these books now. kthxbye.

YOU HAVE TO BUY NOW. Truly amazing.

I have heard both books 3 times each and can't wait for next one. MC is without a doubt what would happen if the most powerful sith/jedi had a baby with spartan 117. oh and she is super sexy as well as powerful. narrator does an amazing job bringing her to life.

Good story.

The only problem I have is with the voice the narrator has given the main character, I wish she had given that voice to a side character instead.
