Présentation de l'éditeur

"Fawcett delivers a suspenseful and captivating science fiction romance. A must read for all, but especially for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES." --Caridad Pineiro, NY Times & USA Today bestselling author


The last thing Addy Dawson remembers is a blazing inferno and freezing river water overtaking her lungs. When she awakens, Addy finds herself on a strange, alien planet, trapped in a cell with no doors, no windows-- and to her horror-- a naked warrior who claims to be her mate.


An alpha gladiator, Max is forced to breed and produce the finest specimens for the Survival Race, a deadly blood sport created by the alien rulers of Hyborea. To rebel means torture-or worse-yet Max refuses to become the animal his captors want him to be. But their jailors will not be denied, and soon Addy and Max find themselves unwilling players in this cruel game. Pushed to the limit, they will risk everything for the chance at a life free from captivity. And though fate brought them together as adversaries, Max and Addy will discover that when they're together, there's nothing in the universe that can stop them .

Biographie de l'auteur

K.M. Fawcett was a born romantic. At six years old, she would beg her parents to take her a restaurant with "soft music and candles" where she could drink Shirley Temples and twirl on the dance floor. As she grew, her desire to be whisked into a romantic adventure by a knight in shining armor also grew to the point of annoying her friends and family. When she received A Knight In Shining Armor (a novel by Jude Deveraux) on her eighteenth birthday, she fell head over heals in love...with the romance genre. K.M. now writes paranormal romances and enjoys stories filled with adventure and strong, kick butt heroes and heroines. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Liberty States Fiction Writers. K.M. is a Nidan (2nd degree black belt) in Isshinryu Karate and co-owns and operates the Tenchi (Heaven and Earth) Isshinryu Karate Dojo with her husband in Lebanon, NJ. She is also a certified women's self-defense instructor with the FLAG (Fight Like a Girl) Program. When not working on her novels, blogging about martial arts and writing action, or working out at the dojo, she is home with her children.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Well developed hero 15 avril 2014
Par Life-long booklover - Publié sur Amazon.com
As the title of this review indicates, the best part of this book was Max, the hero of this tale. He shows a lot of depth, and his growth throughout the story is believable and admirable. That said, even heroes have their limits--and at the end of the book Max totally, even wildly exceeds what any severely injured hero could possibly manage. My willing suspension of belief snapped, which is too bad, because the writing was excellent and the primary relationship well drawn. Up till the end it was a 4 or 4.5 star read--and that's enough promise of things for the future that I'll read more of Fawcett's work.

Addy Dawson is a forest ranger, she loves her job even when it's dangerous. Like now as there's a forest fire. While trying to rescue some people she falls into the rapids and hits her head. When she comes around she's in a room that doesn't appear to have any windows or door. What's worse she's naked and so is the large muscular man next to her. Terrified and angry Addy tries to escape, demanding that this man let her go. When he explains he's as much a prisoner as she is. Addy doesn't believe him. The man who's name is Max explains that they are in a breeding box, and he and she will be expected to have sex and hopefully get her pregnant. Breeding a new generation of humans to serve their captors.

This is a first read for me by this author, I was drawn to this story as I love alien abduction stories. Addy has been abducted and is on the planet Hyborea. As the days and weeks pass she learns that the Hyboreans like to keep humans as pets. Worthy human men compete in the survival race, for the entertainment of the Hyboreans. Max with whom she had been in the breeding box with was an alpha gladiator. Of course Addy is not going to accept being a brood mare for anyone and is determined to escape.

While I enjoyed this mostly. It's obvious the author has used the legend of big foot/yeti, plus elements of Ancient Rome as in a gladiator school. Even the garbage scene from Star Wars to build her story. Considering the Hyboreans cannot communicate with their human captives it seemed odd that some of the others knew so much about the planet and their captors. It also seemed that Addy was the only one who resented being captured and treated like a pet. That just didn't sit right. I wasn't buying into the relationship between Addy and Max either. Plenty happens in the story, but on the whole it just didn't grab me. I was torn between three and four stars but eventually plumped for three as the story did not have enough originality IMO.

WOW! This book took me on a totally unexpected journey. Great addition to the sci-fi romance genre, I can't wait to read more from this author. Although I will prepare myself next time as I was freaking exhausted trekking along with Max and Addy on their journey/escape.

When I first got this book I had NO Idea what it was about. I was amazingly surprised at how awesome this book was. From beginning to end, I lost some sleep reading it! The story line, characters, challenges, and power of the characters is so well thought out. Amazing creativity. Loved it. Need it to be a movie. Couldn't wait or the second book, Fearless, and now can't wait for the third. This is an author to watch. Keep em coming.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Indomitable will molds captivating adventure 30 octobre 2015
Par history repeats - Publié sur Amazon.com

The first entry into The Survival Race series by K.M. Fawcett had me completely "captivated." Seriously. I was in the middle of Chapter 21 when the first slice of humor and a clever little introduction (the heroine introduces herself as Addy before the hero can introduce her as Hell Woman) stopped me in my tracks and I took a breath. Addy's plight, captured from Earth during a forest fire accident, pulls you to a faraway world where humans are utilized as pets to be companions, breeders and fighters. The tech, especially the medical tech, is imaginative but vague, and the aliens are sourced from legends familiar to many Earth cultures. Because this is a survival story, the pace is quick and the locales are richly described and hazardous. In many ways, the adventure aspect of this book was even stronger than the romance.

Addy wakes up naked and ensconced in a cell with human gladiator Max (also naked). Their initial interaction is tinged by coercion but ultimately has hidden and surprising consequences. That is all I will say about that other than don't stop reading because all will be revealed.

Max is also a captive, molded by years of reward for savage behavior. He is conditioned to think of his own survival first and foremost. As he comes to admire Addy's fortitude and independent will, he remembers what he was like as a young captive. She brings back his humanity. But all of his change is very, very gradual. There is no insta-love between the characters, and Max manipulates situations to his benefit. Flashes of empathy and understanding for Addy's situation are off-set by a visibly distant man, with an impenetrable veneer of harshness.

"His moods were as unpredictable and enigmatic as the rest of him. And it enticed her damned curiosity."

These two start their journey of freedom and survival as compatriots, but not lovers. Addy was a strong character, and no weak-bodied or weak-willed miss. She is clever and has the dominant will where their freedom is concerned. She also has formidable stamina and survival smarts from her job as a forest ranger. What she doesn't have is familiarity with the ice planet where they live, the breadth of the tech or familiarity with indigent life forms and customs. Her ignorance gets her into trouble during their perilous journey.

Unexpected foes pop up during their travels, and few are true friends. These two are truly alone in their flight, and like escaped prisoners you read about in the news, places to hide, resources and allies are virtually nonexistent. This comes through in cruel and bleak ways. Capture and torture are assured if they are caught, so finding time for love seems inconsequential. However, human will is indomitable. And so are Addy and Max.
