Cassandra's Challenge (Imperial #1) by M.K. Eidem

Cassandra's Challenge (Imperial, #1)Cassandra Chamberlain has always stood out. It's hard not to at 6’1” and 165 pounds with jet black hair and sapphire blue eyes. And if that wasn’t enough she is also brilliant, graduating from Harvard at fifteen, teaching at MIT at nineteen and up for the prestigious Magellan Award at twenty five. But she’s never really fit in. Not with her peers, not with her contemporaries, only with her family. But everything changes when the Earth is attacked and Cassandra and her niece Victoria are the only survivors. Suddenly the smartest woman on the planet has to relearn everything. Everything she’s believed to be true is challenged and she has to learn to survive, not only for herself but for Victoria, because someone wants them dead.
Admiral William Zafar is the youngest Admiral ever in the Coalition fleet, the hero of the Battle of Fayal. At 7’1” he’s 325 pounds of Carinian male in his prime who is feared and respected throughout the fleet. He is a royal from the House of Protection, carrying its birthmark and considers its King one of his oldest friends.
But when the Regulians destroy a previously unknown planet leaving only two survivors he finds he's willing to risk it all to protect the woman he loves from the Regulians and the Carinian traitor that wants her dead.

REVIEW: ***

The story was good. The editing sucked. There were a LOT of misspelled words, dropped words in a sentence. Grammar was terrible...wrong words were used in a sentence...like the words (to or too). The characters names would be spelled incorrectly (Marat or Marot), overall it sucked to try to read through the mess that this book was. I really liked the story though and kept reading over all the mistakes. This author can tell a good story...she just needs to re-read it herself to correct all the errors or find a good editor to do so. I mean they were all quite obvious errors, not just a missed comma or something. Terrible Editing. I hope her next book is not this bad or I will give up on it. 
 I did not mark my review based on the editing or it would be a one star.
