Book 3/Voyeur Moon. Another win for Ms. Tate!This is the story of Marianne Kowalski, an Earth woman & Vaughn & River, 2 men from Addo, 1 of the 3 planets in the Alpha Centauri system. It's a little over 2 years since the Tyranns of Voyeur Moon attacked Earth, destroyed its satellites, wreaking utter devastation. Marianne was working in IT consulting when the Tyranns invaded. Now her MBA is useless. She's reduced to 1 of the few paying jobs left, stocking shelves in a grocery where there's less to stock each day. Her aunt & uncle who raised her left Earth to go to Sera to serve as lawyers to the Regum, the ruling class of all 3 planets, to try to end the wars between the Tyranns & the people of Addo & Sera. With her aunt & uncle on an alien world & her former fiancé, Jacob, missing (last in Europe), Marianne is alone & lonely. One night, while walking off too much alcohol, she wanders to a nearby beach. She hears a drone overhead, then comes upon an alien ship next to a small lake. Two men approach. She holds out a letter recently put in her mailbox, allegedly from her aunt & uncle, inviting her to come to Sera & live with them. The men say nothing, simply jabbing her with a needle. In seconds, she's out like a light. In the blink of an eye, Marianne's life on Earth is over. Vaughn & River are brothers, computer experts, working with the Regum on Sera, as well as Jakara & the resistance, trying to stop the escalating brutality & depravity of the Tyranns. They know Marianne's aunt & uncle well, since Betsy & Blake Williams saved them from trumped-up charges & a sentence to the Zoo on Voyeur Moon. Unfortunately, the consequences for helping the two are high. Blake & Betsy are kidnapped by the Tyranns, who now also search for Marianne. All 3 are to be held ransom. But Marianne's very lucky. Rather than being abducted by the Tyranns (the intended purpose of the faked letter), she'd been rescued by two Addonians working with Vaughn & River. Marianne's taken to Vaughn & River's residence by her rescuers & left there. It's up to Vaughn & River to explain the situation, something they're not looking forward to. When Marianne awakens, she's amazed to find the two brothers. They're the two most handsome, virile specimens of the male species she's ever seen. But she's also scared, on a planet where she knows no one. As River & Vaughn explain the situation, she feels even more frightened. Her aunt & uncle are missing. No one knows where they are, how to find them. She's never been more alone or afraid. But River & Vaughn are computer experts. They know a thing or two about surveillance & hacking. They answer Marianne's questions as best they can & Marianne alternately despairs, then hopes for the future. She learns her fiancé, Jacob, was taken in the early days of the invasion, put to work in the mines on Addo & died. She's heartbroken, although she's long felt that she'd never see Jacob again. Despite the fact that her aunt & uncle have been taken, there's hope that Jakara & the resistance can forge a plan to rescue them. That is, of course, if they can find them! Marianne, Vaughn & River form a partnership of sorts. With Marianne's education & background in IT, she's an asset to Vaughn & River in their computer research. As they work together to learn the her aunt's & uncle's location, with the assistance of Jakara & his mate, Callie, & other Addonians & former Tyranns, they search for useful facts. One day, combing through seemingly useless information, River stumbles on a cache of folders with seemingly meaningless names. Bored & frustrated, River opens the folders & files. Jackpot! It seems the Tyranns deliberately put their most important data into unprotected, completely accessible, innocent-looking folders. They now have Betsy & Blake's location. But that knowledge is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to formulating a plan to rescue the duo. Any mission to recover them would be so dangerous as to be suicidal! As Jakara, Vaughn, River & the others make their rescue plans, all sorts of complications arise. There's the deep attraction between Marianne, Vaughn & River. That's certainly not the norm on Earth. It's hard to believe that River & Vaughn would be willing to chance being accused of another crime. Then there're the rescue plan details. Those involved will have to plan the escape to the second. Extreme danger is involved. Anything could go wrong at any time. A mistake of mere seconds could result in the deaths of 1 or all of the team. Worse yet, if they're caught, it means lifetime imprisonment at the Zoo! The thrills, excitement & romance spin at a whirlwind pace. Can the escape plan succeed in enemy-controlled territory? Even with precise planning, there are no guarantees. Will any of them survive? What of Marianne? No one's certain of anything. Despite all the plans & details, all they have is their willpower & absolute determination that the Tyranns will NOT win. I give Marianne's Abduction my highest rating without reservation.by Pam S. on May 27, 2017
