"an intense thrill ride of a story"
On Zurin Five Penitentiary in the Andromeda Galaxy
excessive mining of the drug, Styx, by the Duran
Corporation has caused the planet to destabilize, and the
Zurin five is in its death throws. Unfortunately, the Duran
Corporation and its civilian employees have deserted the
planet , leaving the prisoners and a few guards behind to
die. Lucia Isles and Jonathan Thrower, two guards, get
stranded in the underground prison and must work together
Wow! THE GARRISON: CATWALK is a great read! Ms. Verdenius
creates such an intense thrill ride of a story, that I was
biting my nails and praying for Lucia and Jonathan. They
contended with lava worms, bearcats, escaped prisoners, and
tunnels collapsing around them. The tension is thick, but
relieved by the banter between the hero and heroine. The
wise-cracking between Jonathan and Lucia caused me many a
chuckle, and I grew to love both characters.
THE GARRISON is turning out to be a marvelous science
fiction romance series, and CATWALK is a favorite and now
holds a place on my keeper shelf. Do yourself a favor and
read THE GARRISON: CATWALK.

ANDROMEDA GALAXY, 3033C.E.
Lucia Isles is Second-in-command at the Zurin Five Penitentiary. It's not been a good day. The planet is crumbling, the prison breaking apart, she's trapped in collapsing tunnels deep in the underbelly of the prison, there are escaped psychotic prisoners who are subjects of an experiment, and creatures she never knew existed roaming the tunnels.
Oh, yeah, and there is her handsome fellow guard and royal pain in the proverbial on a good day, Jonathon Thrower. A shame he's going as psychotic as the rest of the prisoners. Yep, things are just going from bad to worse…
