Commander Ivy Dalton doesn’t believe in luck or chance. Everything in her life—her career, her ship, the respect of her peers—she’s worked hard to earn. When she and her crew are attacked during an exploration mission, sending her ship crashing onto an unidentified planet, her only concern is finding a way to contact the Alliance. She never expected a single, tiny incident in the infinite reaches of space to challenge all she thought she knew about fate, destiny, and…love.

For thousands of years, King Kai Blackthorn has ruled over the people of his planet with selflessness and compassion, never taking anything for himself. Recently, however, he’s grown weary, malcontent, and the loneliness that has plagued him for centuries has become too pronounced to ignore. Then all that changes with the unexpected arrival of one sassy blonde with luscious curves and a dangerously sharp tongue.

Caught in the midst of intolerance and corruption, two strangers from different worlds struggle to find a way to coexist. Kai can’t abandon his people, and Ivy can’t imagine a life grounded in one place. But fate will not be ignored. Decisions must be made, compromises that will change the course of their lives. For no matter which destination they choose, the journey will leave them forever altered.

3013 series keeps getting better and better. Altered is the ninth installment to the multi authored series. Author Kali Argent brings us two incredibly strong characters in this story.
Commander Ivy Dalton she is one kick butt woman. I love a strong heroine. One I can get behind and love, Ivy is that and more. She is the kind of woman you want with you in a fight, and the one you want to be your best friend too. She is sassy, passionate, and strongly independent.
She has worked hard to achieve all she has and she doesn't want to lose it.
King Kai Blackthorn he is what I would consider to be the perfect ruler. Strong, selfless, kind, and compassionate. He has been looking for a strong woman to help him lead, someone to be his equal. Ivy fits the bill if she would only see that herself.
This story has some great action scenes, lots of love and angst to keep me turning the pages. I like that Ivy has to learn that love does not weaken you it only makes you stronger.
This is part of a series and should be read in order just for the general background information. Other wise the story itself is a stand alone. I cannot wait for the next 3013 book. I want to find out who falls in love next and what the future holds for them.
