I received this book for free through Voracious Readers Only.
Without Hesitation is a fast paced science fiction adventure.
Everleigh and her faithful crew are 'employed' by Caspar, who threatens to kill their families if they don't follow orders. When she is ordered to kidnap Empress Akacia of Valinar, and ends up falling in love with her, they decide to defy Caspar for the first time. After a rush of action, torture, a spaceship crash and surviving on a hostile planet, they have to get rid of Caspar to save Everleigh's and her crew's families.
I really liked the story, at times it felt almost like a dark fairy tale with the Splicers; humans who have been enhanced with the DNA from different animals. It was well written and kept me guessing until the final pages.
The ending is pretty much open, so be aware you may want to dive straight into the next book in the series after finishing this one (I know I will!)
