The Shrike is everything a good science fiction book should be. The author gives enough explanations for anyone to follow and visualise well, but not so much that it boggles the brain and numbs the mind with its intricacies.

Rayne knows the Shrike’s secrets, and some will do anything to know them… Can he keep her safe despite her independent will that often takes her out of his sphere of protection?

As with all this author’s other books, this one has a professional polish not often seen in indie authors’ books, and the fact that she’s a best-selling author shows that others have also noticed the high quality of Southwell’s books.

I loved this book! I have read all three in the series, but this one made me cry. This book will be better understood by someone who has been abused, or knows someone who has been abused. Well written and fascinating story.

Bit of a let down for me, more like mills and boon than SciFi.
Irritating repetative theme of "Stupid emotional girl gets in a huff and storms of to do her own thing" then gets kidnapped (yet again) and as to be rescued (yet again) at great cost and loss of life. Would have been better for all concerned if Rayne had been left in the Crystal Ship at the end of book 2!

An awesome book! Each book in this series is truely without compare! I loved it! It's a moving story which kept my heart pounding with each scene that unfolded. I struggled not to cry in a few places in book 2 and 3. A beautiful story, I will be sure to read again (and would love to get in print). I especially loved the final battle. I couldn't praise this series enough.
