The Naked Truth, the Confederacy Treaty by Lilly Cain
Science Fiction Romance
The Naked Truth is another free eARC I received from Carina Press. I read and liked the story in Alien Revealed, the first book in the Confederacy Treaty series, and The Naked Truth has an equally good story. While The Naked Truth can stand-alone it did not hurt to have the background from reading Alien Revealed.
Lilly Cain says in her note to her readers:
“Welcome back to the world of the Confederacy Treaty where the fate of Earth lies in the hands of lovers from different worlds. On the surface they are very different. Underneath, they are the same, driven by motivations and emotions that revolve around the heart.”
Captain Susan Branscombe, an Earth pilot captured and tortured by terrorist who want to stop the Confederacy Treaty, and Asler Kiis, a Confederacy Examiner who must go into Susan’s mind to find the truth about her capture, are the main characters in The Naked Truth. Susan must prove that she did not commit treason and Asler is her only hope. If they can form a bond it will be important to both Earth and the Confederacy.
Neither The Naked Truth nor Alien Revealed is a full-length novel but in both novellas Lilly Cain does a very good job of world and character building. For SFR fans the Confederacy Treaty is a series worth following.
