You had to feel sorry for Amy. A dying planet and she has cancer. When Dasks and his crew show up looking for human mates she’s afraid to let him know the condition of her health for fear he’ll leave her. What she doesn’t understand is he’s already smitten and not that fickle. Once he knows her no other will do. That was so romantic. While Amy goes along she doesn’t want to mate right away and Dasks lets her take her time, thinking they have forever. When he reveals the true bond that mating will create she has to come clean. This open up a whole other can of worms, a battle of wills, and a search for a cure for Amy’s fatal illness.
Armor was more emotional for me that Shield due to the angst that Amy suffered with her guilt and having to lie by omission. Part of Dasks biology is scenting a lie so he knows something is being hidden but can’t believe Amy would deliberately hide something. The end of this was sweet and heartwarming and set the stage for more stories in the book, as well as revealing more of the fascinating biology of the Castian Warriors.
Earth is a fiery pile of rubble. Amy, a woman left to fend for herself on the volatile planet, seeks to feed a pitiful group of women and children, misfits left to perish because of various and devious reasons. Amy was diagnosed with cancer the year her world fell apart and not given a shuttle pass to the new planet, Ulsy. That she is still alive is all but a mystery to her. When strange beings land on Earth’s surface, Amy presumes the armored, hideous creatures are looming death.
Dasks is a full-blooded Castian warrior from Dargon. He and his warrior mate have come to Earth seeking human females to bond with. A male of almost four hundred years old, he can’t believe how captivating his new human female, Amy, is. But Dasks’ race can sense deception and lies—he can smell fear. Amy is keeping a secret from him.
When a Castian mates, he mates for life. If Amy dies, so will Dasks. Dasks must decide if he can live without her—because if they mate he will surely die with her.
