Surrendered by Evangeline Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Commander Thornex is on a mission to find out information about the Hive but to do that he will have to go undercover as a body slave on Yonnie Six, a place where men are regarded as a lesser being. He is surprised by the mistress he is sold to, Mistress Neh'sanna is like nothing he expected to find on the planet. Her views of men are not entirely aligned with those of the other mistresses. As she teaches Thorn how to give up some of his control, Thorn finds that he does not want to lie to her anymore. But his deception might cost him everything.
Even though I think the hive is one of the creepiest villains that has come up in the series, I think the author is starting to go more back to the root of the series. We get the character interplay and the big picture story moving forward. For a while it seemed as if the character books were just offshoots.
I love at the end how we get to see more of shadow. Ever since practically the beginning of the series the author alluded to the fact that he was different and special and it has been so many books since we really got back to him.
