Earth is a shell of what is used to be; It has been strip-mined and is now a fuel source for an alien metal/organic race of beings that have forced what is left of humanity into the stars.  But now humanity is ready to fight back and while it might not save them, it will defiantly strike a blow to the Imber ships if they take out their fuel supply.  So Francine Beaumont, the defacto Admiral of one of the fleet of human warships is part of a plan to do just that.

Francine is tired and while she knows what she is going to do is most likely a suicide mission she feels that it is better than doing nothing.  If only her ships cook, and best friend John O’Shaughnessy would understand why she is all for this mission.  What she doesn’t know is that not only is he her best friend but he has been in love with her for years.  And if she thinks that she is going to go on a fools mission alone she has another think coming, he isn’t going to let her out of his sight.

Now suddenly the scope of the mission has changed slightly and she is shocked to find out she is not alone on the skiff heading out into space.  What will happen if they find out how they really feel about each other and it is too late?

Best friends can make the best lovers and couples, and Metal Reign shows this nicely.   Frankie is one super strong and efficient woman who is not afraid to work with her team, compromise when needed or take a stand if it is called for.  She is also a woman who understands more than she might let on.  I thoroughly enjoyed her battle with both the Imbers and with her friend John.  If you are a fan of Sci-Fi stories then you will want to pick up Metal Reign and prepare yourself for a fast paced action packed adventure.
