Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors, #1)
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.

    If like me you have read this authors Hell Squad or Galactic Gladiator books then you be well aware that she has the capacity to imagine weird and wonderful creatures. Therefore it came as no surprise when I realised that Davion carries a symbiotic creature that he can link with in order to perform amazing feats . What I did find surprising was Eves non stop have a go attitude. I'm used to kick ass heroines but this gal just keeps going no matter what she is faced with. I loved her feisty nature If like me you have read this authors Hell Squad or Galactic Gladiator books then you be well aware that she has the capacity to imagine weird and wonderful creatures. Therefore it came as no surprise when I realised that Davion carries a symbiotic creature that he can link with in order to perform amazing feats . What I did find surprising was Eves non stop have a go attitude. I'm used to kick ass heroines but this gal just keeps going no matter what she is faced with. I loved her feisty nature and the chemistry and mutual admiration really helped me see these characters as believable. So putting them together on a terra formed planet that keeps throwing unbelievable terrain at them plus creepy insectoid bad guys really meant they had to fight ( literally !) as a team.So why not a five if I thought it was fun and enjoyable ? Perhaps for this reader the couple both had too much of a hero complex going on and the constant wish to sacrifice in order to save the other felt like overkill. As usual the dialogue feels spot on and the romance is hot enough to melt sand ! Good world building and already I'm eagerly anticipating more from characters we've briefly met. So my final thought is a great start to the series and ideal if you want a fun and action packed readThis voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    Anna Hackett does write fun things; Eon Warriors is her latest series and comes off as a mash-up of her Galactic Gladiators series with the ever-popular apocalyptic Hell Squad one as future earth women—when humans finally come of age to travel and explore space in earnest—find themselves tangling with a race of Eon warriors. Who are naturally, buff, muscular, big and bonded with a symbiont that gives them a near-untouchable demeanour from the start.

Who are naturally, buff, muscular, big and bonded with a symbiont that gives them a near-untouchable demeanour from the start. The setup is intriguing of course: a criminal blackmailed into kidnapping a War Commander into helping earth save itself from an insectoid enemy, though that is far from achieved in this establishing book. A fair bit of ‘Edge of Eon’ deals with context and history, though there’s the usual enthusiastic inclusion of sex and action from the very start.My own issues about Hackett’s writing do show up: the wrap-it-up-conveniently scenes when all hope seems lost, the lack of any sense of gravity (admittedly no one quite wants that in a romance where HEAs and magical saves should happen), the instant lust and how the supposedly kickarse heroine turned out to be an impulsively petulant teenager at times full of chest-puffing bravado that suspiciously resembled several strutting male lead characters in action movies. But it didn’t meant I wasn’t eager to read the blueprint that will pretty much define the rest of the series: the ways of bridging the supposedly insurmountable gap between Earth people and a humanoid race, the mating process (the syfy-romance staple) and how it’s achieved—and that’s mostly through humans behaving badly to get the attention of a superior alien race. I liked Hackett’s world-building and the way the narrative arc revolved around the mysterious planets of Eon and their entire civilisation. There’re cool bits to enjoy, which I certainly did, but I’m still crossing my fingers that the next few books won’t quite follow this pattern to a ‘T’ nonetheless. *ARC by the author

Jump in and enjoy!Alas, I tend to need a little bit more than a hot hero, feisty heroine and sex, so despite being excited about this new series, I found it a little meh. It’s fun enough, but I have to admit it didn’t win me over. Eve was just a bit too impulsive at times and I hated how often she needed to be rescued, sometimes through her own foolish actions, sometimes just by accident. Davion was all right, I guess, but pretty dull for a war commander, and the way he got over his kidnapping seemed way too fast to me.I also didn’t like the way some things just happened. Cutting a hole in the side of a spaceship and it being undetected and totally fine. One of the rescues. The dog. They were either too convenient or too unlikely for me to really go along with.I did, however, love the idea of Hunter7, even if again it worked best if I didn’t think about it too deeply. As a setting, though, it was great. I just wish it, like the romance, had been given more time to be explored. The romance is far too instalust for me. But it’s like the rest of the book, fast, furious and getting straight to the exciting stuff without wasting much time on build up.Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I just like a little more depth in my reads these days. Still, the setting is good and the next two books definitely sound intriguing, so I haven’t given up on the series just yet. If you like the Galactic Gladiators series, then chances are pretty high that you’re going to love this.(ARC provided by the author.)

Sub-Captain Eve Traynor accepts a suicide mission to kidnapped a mighty Eon War Commander in order to save her sisters and her planet but she never expected to crash land on a dangerous man-made planet with one pissed off warrior.Edge of Eon was non-stop and filled with Anna Hackett's classic action, sexy romance, and tough heroes and heroines. I quickly read this in one sitting and enjoyed following our characters as they battle the elements on the crazy Eon-made Hunter7. With dangerous animals, plants, and a shifting biome structure, Hunter7 is designed to test the strongest of the Eon Warriors. On top of that, Eve and Davion are also being hunted by the evil Kantos insect aliens. Like I said, non-stop.When it comes to badass heroines, Hackett always does it best, and I loved Eve. She's loyal and tough and she gives her all to complete a mission. After she's wrongfully imprisoned for her Captain's mistakes, Eve finds herself being blackmailed into saving Earth. Of course, she has no problem stopping the destruction of her planet but she doesn't expect to make it off the Eon warship alive. But Eve is pretty smart and she finds a way. Once she's met the War Commander Davion though she's shocked to realize how attracted she is to him.Davion himself is also intrigued by this Terran woman who seems different then what he was expecting. As our hero, Davion was great; he's protective of Eve but as a warrior he respects her skills and loves her strength. While the Eon have kept themselves separate from Earth since their first encounter, Davion never hesitates to stand by Eve's side.I did feel like Eve and Davion gave into their attraction pretty fast but it's all wrapped up in the adrenaline of running for their lives. There is a fated mates thread in this story but I liked that Eve and Davion fell for each other before they ever realized they were mates. There were hints that their connection was deeper than just lust but they were allowed to explore each other before the greater meaning came to light.I look forward to more in this series, especially after the last chapter which introduced our next couple.4 out of 5 stars~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Happily Ever After Book NerdBlog | Twitter | Goodreads

    A kick-ass heroine and a hunky commander. Lots of fighting and steamy scenes in between. If you can't tell I loved everything about this book.I found this world to be quite fascinating, especially the planet Hunter7. I cant wait to see more of the Eon and their technology. And to see the Eons reaction to crazy Eve's sisters.

So if you’ve ever had a hankering to try SFR in general or this author in particular (and you should, she’s terrific!) this is a great place to start.The Eon Warriors series is space opera type SFR, one of my particular favorites. Lots of ships, lots of planets,, LOTS of politics, and a big universe in which to tell both big and small stories. If you’re wondering exactly what “space opera” is, think of Star Trek. THAT’s space opera.Star Wars is more space fantasy, but I digress. As usual.Our heroine is coerced or blackmailed into what seems like a suicide mission. Sub-Captain Traynor is in the brig. Space Corps framed her to take the fall when her Captain – the son of a high-ranking admiral – completely screwed the pooch in a mission against the predatory, insectoid warrior-race, the Kratos.The Kratos want to conquer Earth and crack it open like an egg – and they’re winning the fight. Earth just hasn’t been spacefaring long enough to be really good at space warfare – and it looks like they won’t have time to learn.Unless they can get the highly developed and highly advanced Eons on their side. The Eons are humanoid, a close relative of the people from Earth. But their high advancement has included a whole lot of civilization that Earth humans haven’t mastered yet. Basically, when the Earth folks met the Eons, the Earthers exhibited all the worst flaws of human behavior at one go. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t smart, and the Eons closed their borders and told the Earthers to leave them alone.Which leads us right back to Eve Traynor. Earth’s back is against the wall. They’re losing the war with the Kratos. If the Kratos win, Earth will be stripped and its people will be either dead or food. Desperate times call for desperate measures.So Space Corps concocts the wild idea to kidnap one of the Eons’ leading ship commanders in order to get the Eons to help them fight off the Kratos. While this may seem like a bonehead play, when the people you are desperate to contact won’t take your calls it takes a big battering ram to get your foot in the door. Especially when you need to break down the door first!Eve’s job is to kidnap Commander Davion Thann-Eon in order to somehow win the Eons’ cooperation, or at least get their attention. In return she gets out of the brig and more importantly has a chance of saving her planet and her people. Including her two younger sisters.The kidnapping goes swimmingly, at least at first. But when the Kratos attack during the escape, it all goes pear-shaped really, really fast. Eve, Davion and the small skimmer she’s commandeered crash land on Hunter 7, a planet notorious for its rigorous testing of Eon warrior candidates. The Kratos are right on their tails while the planet attempts to kill them at every turn.They say that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. In the case of Eve and Davion, it makes them stronger together. And it still might kill them.Escape Rating A: I have been waiting for this author to return to SFR, and Edge of Eon was definitely worth the wait. It hit that difficult balance between building a consistent science fictional world and telling a terrific love story.It helps that the story reminds me of one of the absolutely classic SF romances, Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold. And that’s epic company to be in. While Shards does not start with a kidnapping, the plot of two space commanders from not necessarily opposing sides but certainly not allies who have crashed on a dangerous planet with little hope of rescue and fall in love along the way is a classic for a reason. It’s a plot that works, forcing two reluctant allies to bond together in order to have a chance at survival.The kidnapping is a nice twist – and reminds me a bit of Quantum, the second book in Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy series. That book also has the reluctant allies face a deadly planet scenario, with the protagonists each wondering if the other has betrayed them.There are also a couple of classic SFR tropes built into Edge of Eon that are difficult to do well, but that are done quite well in this story.The Eons have a population problem. Or rather, a procreation problem that leads to a population problem. The warriors are only fertile with their “fated mates”, and true matings have become very rare. Science has found a way around the problem through in vitro fertilization of scientifically selected genetic material, but it’s not an ideal solution for an entire species.So the Eon Warriors need to increase their pool of potential partners in order to find their true mates. This is jokingly referred to as the “Mars needs women” trope. And when they do find them, because of the way things are set up in this story, that’s the “fated mate” trope.Of course, in our story, Eve and Davion turn out to be true mates. A fact which is going to sooner or later in the series lead to somebody figuring out that Earth is a potential source for mates for the Eons, giving the two species a reason to get together to fight the Kratos.So far, this aspect is done subtly, but it’s definitely there. And it’s an aspect that has the potential to grow as the series progresses.The fated mate trope can lead to insta-love, and if done poorly tends to feel a bit like an arranged marriage where the participants don’t really have a choice about who they mate with.While Eve and Davion do fall for each other rather quickly, the circumstances that they have found themselves in do lead to fast bonding without the fated mate issue. That they don’t even guess that they might be true mates until after they have already fallen for each other keeps the fated mate situation from being too heavy handed.But what really sells the story are the characters. We empathize with Eve and the rock and the hard place she’s caught between. Unfortunately it is also all too easy to see how a hide-bound bureaucracy turns into an “old soldier’s club” where children of the elite accrue favors they have not earned and people like Eve get the shaft. Or the cell.That Davion falls for this tough, competent and dangerous woman makes sense. She’s someone who can meet him as an equal, and there are very few people who can do that, whether male or female. Forced to rely on each other, it’s not a surprise that they fall for each other, even if it does happen just a bit fast.That the underhanded and desperate dealings of Eve’s Space Corps also set the scenarios for books 2 and 3 in this series makes perfect sense. I can’t wait for Touch of Eon in January to see how it all begins to play out.

    Not what had hoped for... Good, Anna’s always good ..but I didn’t love it like I had hoped...Four stars foe the writer,but only three for enjoyment....Surreal and highly repetitive are the first words that come to mind here....The characters had a nice banter at times but it like soo many things were was rather repetitive and personally I never really felt their connection even though I wanted to...Eve : Eve was just ,well honestly Eve was just to perfect... Eve was just to freakin perfect... He Not what had hoped for... Good, Anna’s always good ..but I didn’t love it like I had hoped...Four stars foe the writer,but only three for enjoyment....Surreal and highly repetitive are the first words that come to mind here....The characters had a nice banter at times but it like soo many things were was rather repetitive and personally I never really felt their connection even though I wanted to...Eve : Eve was just ,well honestly Eve was just to perfect... Eve was just to freakin perfect... Here’s a woman who may be a great kick butt space marine or what have you,but she’s supposed to spend most of her time in space not hiking for days at a time on a very very hostile planet w/an ever changing atmosphere, climate and terrain..... and yet she does just that, is constantly fighting for survival with the planet itself or these bug like creatures that seem to constantly pour down on them like their own personal ant hill and yet she never whines or complains or even really gets discouraged.... She’s like Bruce Willis in Die Hard in the sense,only she’s a woman and she’s got a sexy man to sex her in between fighting ..Eve can do anything it seems and spends most the story either having sex,saving her man,almost dying or scrambling across ever changing terrain w/out a grumble or complain....And saying she’s hates the planet every now and then thru out the story isn’t really complaining....The story for at least 85% was finding someplace momentarily safe to eat or rest or try and make contact or get weapons or medicines for healing, fighting ,sleeping or eventually at I think 25% in or soo F’ing...Hike, find food,shelter eat bathe,sex,then move on,fight the elements and the enemy, then food,heal,bathe,sex, wake and rinse and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat ( the H sacrificing himself more than once and her saving him) and repeat ( you get the picture ) til I was skimming and wanting to scream! “Are they ever getting off this stupid stupid planet?!?!?!?!?!”Deep sighYeah finally but like I said it was soo far into the book I was, well I didn’t care as much as I had in the beginning...Now Davion was ok... just ok.... I know the guy saw himself as a 100% confirmed bachelor,but he shouldn’t have needed almost or at least 75% of the book to realize what Eve was to him...I kept waiting for him to get it and for him and her to have a discussion about his ppl at some point and maybe just maybe for him or them to see maybe the reason his ppl haven’t been finding their mates is because the need humans ... especially human women.... lol, isn’t that what the aliens always need ? Th need ya human women,like vampires need blood it seems...Lol, us women are special like that ;)Anyway the story was soo repetitive if things hadn’t changed in the ways they did it would have had a ground hog feel about it... and it kinda did...the bug creatures seemed to hone in on them like they had them lo jacked and the fact that them knowing where he was had to have been an inside job,the work of a traitor or mole never seemed to come up....No,no,no,no, Ms. Hackett is an amazing writer but I didn’t enjoy seeing the saw thing over and over and over again to perfect ppl, constantly fighting almost insurmountable odd against them,with laughter snark, a wild creature, lots of sex and no matter how many times they almost die never getting down or truly worried for more than 5 seconds,then back to sex or killing... then seeming to fall into love and mating w/out one real discussion and never stoping to get to know each other...I was hoping to love this soo much,but it’s just to “perfect” ppl ,in a loop of either non stop action or sex on a loop til your wanting to scream ,”Make it stop!”Dear lord, “Make. It. Stop!” Seriously I wanted to hate this book for that alone.... I didn’t think they were EVER getting off that planet.... that plus falling into sex and then seeming love and mating w/out the first discussion really, I just ... noA surreal kinda groundhogs day loop,where the characters just kinda fall into their relationship with out any real getting to know each other time ... I don’t plan to read the next book , her sister sounds too cold and too reckless...I respect you Ms.Hackett but this was a miss for me...

They are very secretive community and no one knows anything about them.

She could paralyse Davion's symbiotic. 😰 Eve and Davion crash land on the terrifying hunter planet known as Hunter7. A planet designed to test a warrior to his limits but it was as a vication for Eve😤. She faced every problem with easy and shallow solutions😬. She befriended quickly with a mysterious creature with only a piece of food 😕. HOW Terran people know all these things about Eon empire whom no one knows anything about them 😱. (hide spoiler)]Did I mention that you shouldn't think deeply about the story? 😉I still hope the author will make her female heroines more feminine and human, and make the story more reasonable. 😔

    EonWhen Eve is released from prison and blackmailed into going on a secret mission to save Earth from an insectoid alien invasion and annihilation, she's sure she's being sent on a suicide mission. The Eon's already have a bad impression of Terrans and kidnapping their War Commander won't win Terrans any points.

The Eon's already have a bad impression of Terrans and kidnapping their War Commander won't win Terrans any points. But given no other options, she finds a way, and they are in Davion's ship heading for an Eon's training planet when disaster strikes. Davion is getting ready to leave on a rare week long vacation to a synthetic Eon training planet when he is attacked and overcome by a Terran woman who keeps apologizing for kidnapping him. Stunned, he is taken to his preprogrammed starship, where he gets free from his restraints only to be caught in a surprise attack by the alien bugs who have set their sights on Earth. He and his captor crash onto a world that, along with the aliens chasing them, is designed to kill. This KU library selection is a great beginning to a new series from one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend it.

    Enjoyable start to a new series. Eve Traynor has been charged with an offence by Space Corps all because of her star ship Captain being the son of an Admiral and consequently sent to prison. She is not at all happy with the Corps and to make matters worse she now has to go and kidnap a War Commander of the Eon, a race of warriors who refuse to help Earth fight against the Kantos a nasty bug like race who have Earth in their sites to conquer.

Eve would not have taken this mission if the powers that be had not threatened her sisters. So it is probably a suicide mission but Eve will do anything for her sisters. How hard can it be to kidnap War Commander Davion Thann-Eon from his own warship and live to complete her mission. She is so screwed. A big thank you to Anna Hackett for the wonderful review copy. So looking forward to Lara's story next.

    I’d say give it a goI needed to find another alien romance since I’ve read through so many lately! This one was pretty good. If I could rate half stars, I’d likely have went more 3.5. The symbionts armor was good and I liked how she had it respond to eve. I liked the planets animal responding to eve also. The best part was that they accepted their relationship and did not fight it like so many alien Romances have them do for 80% if the books, gah that’s annoying. So this was a nice change.

Could have used more details in parts between the characters. I wanted eve to get her own suit. The constant fight after fight stuck on the planet was repetitive and got to the point of being annoying, so I skimmed over some of the constant repetitive fighting.

And Davion bends for her. I’m already counting the days until Book 2, about Eve’s sister Lara and the Eon warrior Craze!

    I have never been disappointed with an Anna Hackett book, and I wasn't this time either. I can see this is the start of a new book obsession. With each new world she introduces, Anna creators a new fantasy that I fall into whole heartedly. Her characters actions and motivations are so believable and relatable. Eve's love and devotion for her sisters is a darned good reason to go against her principles in order to keep them safe.

Her fall, fast and deeply into love with Davian is believable, as he is possibly the only male strong enough to match her in every way. I can hardly wait for the next installment in the series, as I know that the worlds of Eon will drag me into a new addiction.

    Anna Hackett has done it again. I love not only the worlds she creates, but the characters too. Both her series of Hell Squad and Galactic Gladiators are two of my faves of all time (even though Galactic Gladiators does repeat storylines a bit).Eve is one of the baddest chicks I've ever read. I like that she doesn't need a man to save her, or really any man for that matter. But she wants Davion around. Davion for his part loves Eve for who she is and even encourages her.

    Hackett has had these characters in her head a long time, and it shows. Her heroines are usually decently fleshed out, but every so often there's one who seems especially real. Eve is one of those: she feels like more than an action heroine: she's someone I'd want to hang out with on Saturdays.This is a fun new series: everything feels fresh.

    This is the first of a new series of sci-fi action romance and can be read as a stand-alone. There is plenty of twists and surprises, subtle world building, fast action, unique aliens, well developed characters, humor, and steamy romance. The hero is strong, dedicated, and intelligent. The heroine is determined, skilled, and not a damsel in need of rescue. The author sets the stage for the next book or two, but doesn’t end the book with a cliff hanger and the hero and heroine get their HEA.
