Review: Betrayal and evil plans are set to try an cause a war between Jeboo and Jorzzon. It is up to Frey, Alkan and Azakeen to stop it before it starts. There are many players involved from Jeboo to Jorzzon.

I loved everything about this fast paced, action packed story. It was tense and had me on the edge of my seat until the very end.

Fantastic read.

At The Trough

by

Adam Knight

In a future where schools have no teachers and no classrooms, Jennifer Calderon is the perfect student. Every day she watches her video modules, plays her edu games, and never misses an answer. Life is comfortable in the Plex, a mile-wide apartment building. Corporations and brand names surround her and satisfy her every want and need.

Then one day, her foul-mouthed, free-spirited, 90’s-kitsch-wearing girlfriend Melody disrupts everything. She introduces her to a cynical, burned-out former teacher, who teaches them the things no longer taught in school. Poetry. Critical thinking. Human connection.

But these lessons draw the attention of EduForce, the massive corporation with a stranglehold on education. When they show how far they are willing to go keep their customers obedient, Jennifer has to decide what is most important to her and how much she is willing to sacrifice for it.

Warning: Deaths of secondary characters, references to suicide and suicidal ideation and abuse of an adult child by a parent

You can only put the past away for so long.

This had never been truer for the crew of Matt’s ship, the Lady Lisa. Even as their engine suffers a critical malfunction and Matt scrambles to fund the costly repairs, Val, the ship’s reticent engineer, unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a deadly ghost from his past. Now it’s up to Matt, Ryce, and Tony to rescue him, even if it means breaking the law and striking an uneasy bargain with a local black-market kingpin—but what if this time their best efforts simply aren’t good enough?

And it might be that Val isn’t the only crew member Matt risks losing when his budding relationship with Ryce unexpectedly runs aground. With their love and commitment put to the test, Matt and Ryce must rally to save their friend and to keep their ship afloat, but in a race so desperate there might not be any real winners.

Blurb: What lurks in the dark is not always a monster. Sometimes it’s your deepest desire.

Trey Duncan’s career as a Boston cop has taken an unearthly turn. He’s become embroiled in an alien war being fought on his planet. Each battle they win is a short-lived reprieve. As he helps his new vampire-like friends save his own people, he can’t help but become emotionally involved, especially when it comes to the disturbingly appealing Demi. A hybrid of human and alien, the boy is both older and younger than he seems. To Trey, he remains a temptation he must resist.

Demi is a young man caught between two species and cultures. While his fathers have always kept a tight rein on him, he is starting to break away from their control. He knows what he wants, and from the moment he set eyes on Trey, he knew that the cop was the man for him. Since the last battle, he finally has hope that Trey feels the same way.

Biology forces both their hands, but Trey and Demi are still worlds apart in what they see as their future together. When their enemy’s legacy comes back to haunt them, it’s up to them to lead the way.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Blood Wars collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Trey is an ordinary human who is also a homicide detective. He came across a wild secret not too long ago and gave his word to help the aliens he befriended. The vampire’s were fighting a war that brought death and destruction to many. However there was one alien vampire that he wanted in more fun ways but felt that the kid was just to young. Boy is he in for a big surprise.

Demi is a hybrid, one of his fathers was human whereas the other was alien. He loved them with all his heart but damn if he couldn’t pull one over on them. He wanted the human cop to do more than just notice him. Leave it to his biology and his fathers to help move things along further. He must go through from boy to man stage with some hot sex. He might get what he desires more than life, that is if Trey will fall in line. Things are going to heat up.

This story has a dark tone to much of it but the way it is written just makes that part of the story even better. I think that this is probably one of the few series that can pull that off in a way that keeps my attention. The characters are quite entertaining but I must admit that I don’t really care for Trey like I should have. He is quite a bit older than Demi, but in reality he is actually younger by many years. The thing is Demi still looks like a teenager and it drives our detective crazy. Whatever just happened to getting your freak on. It does go deeper into some areas of the story that will fascinate the reader.

It is a very good story with quite a bit of action going on. Plus I liked the surprise in who the bad guy is. Very good plot and made the story rock. I had quite a bit of fun reading it and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Embracing magic was only the first step.

Before Kallen, there was Tarragon. Oryon history sees him as the first and greatest of all technomage kings. What history has forgotten, however, is that he was also the very first to partner with a symbiont.

Tarragon altered the face of Oryon’s history when he fully embraced magic and emerged as the first ever technomage king.

At the age of eighteen, Tarragon became clan king by default. Seven years later, with the help of the scorned magicians, Tarragon defeated the Zaruthra and Caprici clans. Not only had he been almost unbeatable on the field of battle, but his political leadership and emerging talent as a mage were evidenced by the fact that his empire would live on for a long time, even after his death, through his children because of the infrastructure and policies he put in place. He took advantage of a more advanced technology but also showed brutality in the execution of his opposition’s leaders. Surrounded by deadly rivals that were intent on eradicating his family, as the last surviving heir, Tarragon, needed to learn how to control his magic and how to fight. Survival was not easy, and if it meant getting involved in a dangerous secret, so be it.

Review: Tarragon is a young man in the middle of a war that took his family in brutal ways. He’s determined not to end the same as his family did against his enemies. Along the way he discovers who and what he is.

I loved this story. It was intriguing reading about Tarragon and all that transpired to make him what he became. There are are many twists and turns as well as revelations that lend a greater understanding as the book progressed.

(EMPATHY 02)
by

R.R. Campbell

In the aftermath of the calamitous Human/Etech research study, Chandra and Kyra struggle to reclaim the life they shared in a pre-EMPATHY world, while Ty, armed with knowledge of EMPATHY’s programming language, seeks revenge on the Halmans for the harm that’s befallen his friends.

As a North American Union investigation into the happenings on the compound looms, a grief-stricken Peter works to resurrect the memory of his mother from a harvested nanochip, and Heather scrambles to keep her family—and their company—together. Alistair, having abandoned the family business, plots to save his hide and that of his wife while she strives to stay one step ahead of a husband she has no reason to trust.

Far to the north amid civil unrest, a recently retired Rénald Dupont investigates the disappearance of his friend and former colleague, Meredith, despite grave threats from an increasingly skittish North American Union government.

As old and new foes emerge, spouse is further pit against spouse, brother against sister, and governments against their people. In the end, all must choose between attempts to reclaim the past or surrender to the inevitable, an intractable world of their own creation.

Mourning Dove is an evocative, sweeping symphony of love, revenge, and desperation in cacophonous times. It is the second installment in r. r. campbell’s epic EMPATHY sci-fi saga.

On the pleasure planet, Wish, Kalean goes to a brothel to meet some potential escorts. But the man who captures his attention isn’t one of those on offer….

Descani is as surprised as anyone at Kalean’s attraction to him—and at his own interest in the young man. He’s even more perplexed as a bond begins forming between them.

But a murder rips apart Kalean’s family and redefines his role. He’ll be isolated on his cold and barren home world, far from the warm and colorful planet of Wish—and the arms of the man who’s coming to mean so much to him—unless he can find a way to escape the forces separating them.

Now he has to deal with what he dreads most. Responsibilities. Dru and her crew are given the task of finding Wyatt Morrick and telling him about his father’s death. Along the way, Morgan soon learns that responsibility can be painful, difficult, and frightening. It can also lead to something very special.

Dr. Wyatt Morrick is in trouble. Big trouble. He and his medical crew are stuck on a planet under attack. He may not be a soldier, but he has patients and friends to worry about. With very few supplies left, something has to give for them to survive. The whole planet’s future is at stake and he is stuck hiding in a cave.

When Morgan saves Wyatt and his friends, the two men are given a gift, each other. Their love can’t stop the Concord, though, and someone has to. Morgan has to grow and accept his responsibilities, and Wyatt has to move on from his father’s death. That death just happens to be a little more complicated then Wyatt expected.

A little blue world, the third planet from the sun. It’s home to 7 billion people with all manner of faiths, beliefs and customs, divided by bigotry and misunderstanding, who will soon be told they are not alone in the universe. Anyone watching from the outside would pass by this fractured and tumultuous world, unless they had no other choice.

Todd Landon is one of these people, living and working in a section of the world called the United States of America. His life is similar to those around him: home, family, work, friends and a husband.

After the attack on San Jose, Todd is appointed to Special Envoy for Terran Affairs by the nentraee, a position many world leaders question. Undeterred Todd wants to build bridges between both people. However, this new position brings with it a new set of problems that not only he, but his new allies Mi’ko and Mirtoff must overcome. Will the humans and nentraee learn to work together despite mistrust and threats of more attacks by a new global terrorist group, or will the terrorists win? Will this bring an end to an already shaky alliance between nentraee and humans?

Leti Ando and Will Hackett are certain about one thing in all the galaxy. They love one another. Now that they are mated, it’s time to meet Hack’s parents and settle into their new home. In a normal courtship, the two would spend time getting to know one another and reveling in their love. Normal isn’t what they get.

Leti struggles to understand the artifact Dr. Morrick left them, but what he’s discovering is unbelievable and completely frightening. If his theories are true, then the entire galaxy is at risk. Meanwhile, he tries to adjust to Charybdis Station, deal with his parents, and worse of all, learn to cook. Luckily he has friends, old and new, to help him.

Hack comes home to Charybdis Station, expecting a break from the hectic adventures of the past few months. What he gets are changes, more responsibilities, and a war with the Concord. He’ll deal with it, though. All he has to do is look around him to understand why it’s time to fight back.

Together, the new couple must learn to stand together, to accept and support one another. Their happiness isn’t the only thing at risk.

Leti Ando needs off planet and fast. He has a best friend and a new half-sister to rescue, and he needs to be sneaky about it. Unfortunately sneaky isn’t really his thing. With the help of a friend, Leti and his menagerie, along with his two companions, stow away aboard a mystery ship. Little does he know that The Blue Solace belongs to the infamous mercenary, Captain Will Hackett, a man he’ll come to love with everything inside him.

Will has been in a bitchy ass mood for the past six months. He’s restless and grumpy, but doesn’t know why. He knows he needs something and he can’t find it, but his crew are out of patience and insist on some R &R back home at Charybdis Station.

Then Hack finds a stow away angel and everything changes. Leti is his mate and he’ll do anything to keep him safe and happy, even smile.

The galaxy’s not a safe place, though, and The Blue Solace has a job to do: pick up a renowned scientist and his mysterious artifact. Then get them safely back to Charybdis Station. Hack and Leti don’t realize their romance story is about to get hijacked by Concord mercenaries. Their love is easy, it happens just like that. Staying alive and keeping the galaxy safe? That’s a little harder.

Review: Leti and his many pets, sister and travel companion stow away aboard a mercenary ship to get away from his father. The mercenary captain has been irritating and grumpy but not knowing why until he meets his mate Leti that is a stowaway.

Many antics take place as the many exotic animals are taken over by various crew members and everyone finds a place. I liked the way the story progressed but have to confess that I was a bit put off by how nice a mercenary captain was in this story. I was expecting him to be a bit more gruff not happy all the time.

Other than that it was an entertaining story.

Good read.

Blurb: War never leaves a soldier behind.

Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin is still healing from his brief stint as a prisoner of war. While his physical wounds have mended, the emotional scars left behind are slow to disappear. Eager to prove his resilience in the face of lingering trauma, Alexei is determined to complete his first mission in three months and get back into the field—but he’s not forging ahead without his lover.

Nightmares will always linger.

Agent Sean Delaney’s recovery from trauma is more slow going than he would like, but he pushes through in order to return to active duty and not be left behind. But every decision he makes leaves him feeling like he’s gone two steps forward and one step back when it comes to Alexei. The guilt Sean feels from what they both endured still colors his interactions with the man he loves. Trying to overcome it is difficult and exhausting, making Sean question his place in Alexei’s heart.

Holding on is the hardest thing to do.

The ties between Alexei and Sean were frayed by the enemy’s hand. Mending what’s been broken between them will require a depth of honesty neither man is ready to face just yet. But if they don’t, they risk losing a future together neither wants to let go.

Out of the Ashes is a 28,000 word novella that follows directly after In the Blood in my Metahuman Files series and builds off of events in that book. It is recommended that you read In the Blood first before reading Out of the Ashes. There are explicit intimate scenes that are not suitable for readers under the age of 18 within the novella.

I really love Sean and Alexei together. They went through so much at the hands of Cillian yet came out stronger. It was a bonus that Sean is now part of Alpha Team at Jamie’s request.

This new team is made up of expendable recruits that can be sacrificed, if not to retrieve this weapon of mass destruction, at least to destroy it in a kamikaze effort. A team of people among which: a drueed, a seer, a robotic mad scientist and an elementalist.

Jaime will have to take those strong individualities, shape them into a cohesive group, and get them ready for action. But as they embark on this suicide mission, they soon find that there might be an even worse threat looming: a dangerous virus that changes people and turns them into monsters.

The team will need everyone’s peculiar talents to make it out of there alive. Clock is ticking, for they might be the universe’s last hope. They, the band of pariahs. The Mage Marine Misfits!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really enjoyed this fast paced, action packed, suspense filled story. Jaime and the suicide squad were intriguing. Each of their abilities came in handy during dangerous missions they were sent on.

I loved that as the story progressed it seemed to add depth as the mystery and suspense grew to high heights. All was not as it seemed and there were those working behind the scenes to cause discord and chaos in their favor. Not everyone in the squad make it out alive and lessons are learned the hard way about who they can and can not trust.

This story ends on a wild cliffhanger that had me gasping. I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens with Jaime and the squad next.

Great read.

(A New World 01)
by

M.D. Neu

A little blue world, the third planet from the sun. It’s home to seven billion people—with all manner of faiths, beliefs, and customs, divided by bigotry and misunderstanding—who will soon be told they are not alone in the universe. Anyone watching from the outside would pass by this fractured and tumultuous world, unless they had no other choice. Todd Landon is one of these people, living and working in a section of the world called the United States of America. His life is similar to those around him: home, family, work, friends, and a husband.

On the cusp of the greatest announcement humankind has ever witnessed, Todd’s personal world is thrown into turmoil when his estranged brother shows up on his front porch with news of ships heading for Earth’s orbit. The ships are holding the Nentraee, a humanoid race who have come to Earth in need of help after fleeing the destruction of their homeworld. How will one man bridge the gap for both the Humans and Nentraee, amongst mistrust, terrorist attacks, and personal loss? Will this be the start of a new age of man or will bigotry and miscommunication bring this small world to its knees and final end?
