4.5 starsFabulous space opera with two kickass protagonists going head to head in this D/s story. It has all the fun you'd expect with uber-abilities, battles, and good worldbuilding. Pray gives enough data to make the tale rich, but not enough to bore you with the minutia. Good plot, it doesn't rely solely on the characters to carry it. The interactions between Mara and MacTire are sizzling and spunky. If you're looking for a good fight these two make fine combatants. The only slight, and I might slight disappointment was the tame ending. I was expecting more fireworks--a girl can hope.
