#NewRelease ➙ Taken by Alison Aimes

by Alison Aimes is the 
sexy sci-fi thriller you've been waiting for.
Run-away breeder Ava Davies only wanted to live life on her own terms. Now she’s captive in a labor camp deep within Dragath25’s core, a sweltering maze of caves overrun by brutal prisoners-turned-slaves. Her only chance for survival? Appeasing the leader of the most powerful subterranean gang: a man from her past with his own score to settle. Two years ago, resistance fighter Hunter Valdus’s and his men were sentenced by the Council to live and die as slaves. Now a beautiful, desperate female from his past has landed in his grasp. A woman who just might be the key to his crew’s escape and his revenge. All he has to do is keep her alive and at a distance until he can use her for his own dark purposes. But raw, blood-pounding lust is a potent force. Forgiveness and love even stronger. And the best-laid plans can be laid to waste, especially on Dragath25. TAKEN, Book Two in the Condemned Series, is an action-packed sci-fi prison planet romance that burrows to the deepest, hottest recesses of the globe to explore what happens when revenge and lust, redemption and love, collide
A world where absolute power goes unchecked - Where corruption knows no bounds- And where lives, and deaths, are nothing but cheap means of entertainment to  please the whims of the elite. 
A world that Ava had escaped from. 

She is seeking a miracle. 
Freedom from the corruption - Freedom from the tyranny - Freedom from the humiliation and pain. 
Her hope is dashed when she finds herself trapped in a living nightmare. Deep in the core of the labor camps of Dragath25’s. 
Right into the midst of those who no longer have any reason to hold on to their humanity, but every reason to feed their darkness.
Will her fate among the depraved be even crueler than her life as a breeder?
Valdus and his men choose to fight the Council's corruption. They lost. Their fates are now sealed in the hell that is Dragath25. 
Valdus has planned and waited for the day he could save his men and exact his revenge. And now it seems the key to his freedom has been delivered directly into his hands. He just needs to keep her alive long enough to get the council to respond. 

Ava was everything I like in a heroine - Smart, quick-witted, fast to respond and despite the odds, she  gave everything she had, every darn time! I enjoyed that she did not make excuses and that she still had a shred of humanity after everything she had been through. 
Valdus was the anti-hero hero. I know that's a tough one. He was a true leader in every sense of the word. He put his men before himself. He stepped up and made the tough decisions. 
**sigh** I want a Valdus.

Lots of action and bloodshed dotted with some pretty horrific scenes of cruelty blended in with suspense and one sweet yet smoking romance.

I did not read book one in this series - I was able to read this without it but IMO if I had read the first in series this would have been twice as intense.
