Synopsis (Goodreads):
Eve hadn’t wanted a second marriage, she wanted to remain happily unmarried rather than curse another good man to Rob’s fate. If only Tul had listened to her protestations. Instead the Senate are intent on making her relive her own personal hell. Worse, the instrument they seem intent on using to bring about her suffering is the creature, the merciless drone they’d created from all that remained of Rob.

The world seems to be conspiring against Eve and the Alliance, and even among Johan’s band of rebels not everyone is happy to have Eve as part of the group. With Tul missing and friends few on the ground, Eve begins to slip back into the pit of despair which had once consumed her and that may just lead her to behave more recklessly than ever before. Mistakes have consequences however, and for Eve the consequences of her actions may just decide the course of the future.

Is there a way to save Tul? Does anything of Rob remain in the Senate controlled puppet his body’s become? More importantly, why are the Senate determined to take control of Eve and just how far will they go to gain possession of her?
Thoughts on Allegiance: I enjoyed this book. Things go bad in a big way for Eve (BIG WAY), but we're given plenty of answers as to why she's been made to suffer through the years and what's been going on behind the scenes with the Senate. And those answers are a little frightening. THINGS HAPPEN, GUYS! THINGS HAPPEN!

And Eve's at the heart of it all.

Not by choice, either. She's a victim of circumstances she can't control and she doesn't always handle what happens to her well. She falls down and has to drag herself back up. Over and over again. Finding out what Rob's been turned into at the end of book 1 sets off a chain of events that culminates in betrayal of the worst kind, death, destruction, and Eve coming into her own.

I am VERY intrigued to see how all this will play out in the next book. It looks like Eve's barely scratched the surface on what she's capable of and now there's a whole slew of new badness to contend with.

Bring it on!
