Ardulum: Second Don

(Ardulum 02)
by

J.A. Fields

The Charted Systems are in pieces. Mercy’s Pledge is destroyed, and her captain dead. With no homes to return to, the remaining crew sets off on a journey to find the mythical planet of Ardulum—a planet where Emn might find her people, and Neek the answers she’s long sought. Finding the planet, however, brings a host of uncomfortable truths about Ardulum’s vision for the galaxy and Neek’s role in a religion that refuses to release her. Neek must balance her planet’s past and the unchecked power of the Ardulans with a budding relationship and a surprising revelation about her own genealogy.

Ardulum: Second Don blends space opera elements and hard science into a story about two women persistently bound to their past and a sentient planet determined to shape their future.

Dali

by

E.M. Hamill

Dalí Tamareia has everything—a young family and a promising career as an Ambassador in the Sol Fed Diplomatic Corps. Dalí’s path as a peacemaker seems clear, but when their loved ones are killed in a terrorist attack, grief sends the genderfluid changeling into a spiral of self-destruction.

Fragile Sol Fed balances on the brink of war with a plundering alien race. Their skills with galactic relations are desperately needed to broker a protective alliance, but in mourning, Dalí no longer cares, seeking oblivion at the bottom of a bottle, in the arms of a faceless lover, or at the end of a knife.

The New Puritan Movement is rising to power within the government, preaching strict genetic counseling and galactic isolation to ensure survival of the endangered human race. Third gender citizens like Dalí don’t fit the mold of this perfect plan, and the NPM will stop at nothing to make their vision become reality. When Dalí stumbles into a plot threatening changelings like them, a shadow organization called the Penumbra recruits them for a rescue mission full of danger, sex, and intrigue, giving Dalí purpose again.

Risky liaisons with a sexy, charismatic pirate lord could be Dalí’s undoing—and the only way to prevent another deadly act of domestic terrorism.

Blurb: Crown Prince, techno-geek, and secret sadomasochist Valier has lusted for years after the gorgeous gladiator called “The Diamond.” Meeting the escaped slave on a rooftop, Valier discovers Moro Dalgleish wants suicide before his former masters can reclaim him.

Infected with a deadly symbiont, Valier proposes empty sex to satisfy his urges and grant Moro’s release from a horrible life. Neither man plans for Moro to survive, or how the morning after will shake three empires to their foundations.

Warning: Scenes of rape and torture, graphic violence

Review: This is the 2nd edition which has been revised and re-edited.

Moro is a bonded gladiator and believes that he has two more years before he can be free again. But, he finds out the truth… he still belongs to his previous master, the man who destroyed his world and ruined his life. But, Moro won’t go back to that monster and plans his suicide. Valier is the crown prince of the Camalian Commonwealth and is fighting off assassins when Moro stumbles across him, Moro saves his life so Valier offers Moro a way out, one night of sex where he will be infected with the sentient symbiont endemic, which will either lead to Moro’s death or his complete freedom.

Whoop, okay boys and girls this is a little gem if you love your sci-fi with fantasy and some good old space opera, along with a good dose of abuse and angst. Moro is an abused slave or a ‘bonded gladiator’. He has no control over his life and is holding on to the promise of being released in two years… he is betrayed. He was only loaned out and now his previous owner wants him back, but Moro would rather die than be placed in those hands again. Valier is a crown prince who ends up rescuing Moro, after Moro saves his life and it takes them on a new journey of discovery as they are a perfect match for each other. And secrets from Moro’s past finally emerge which place them both in danger, as long forgotten beings return and make their presence felt.

There is a hell of a lot going on in this story, but every bit is very well-connected, there is in-depth plotting and planning that go back years. Lots of scheming from characters, some twists and turns and several species involved. The story moves smoothly along and you get dragged in as you work out who is against whom and who is plotting what. You try to figure out who is a good guy and who is a spy. There are scenes that are pretty grim and gruesome, scenes that are distressing and scenes that are really freaking hot.

Now, there is one full on sex scene of m/f ,but it is actually in a kind of dream bubble thingie when Moro meets Cama (symbiont) and I just put it down to a necessary evil. The sex between Moro and Valier is very hot and has a lot of mild bondage.  I am sure that if there is a next book then they would be into more of the hard-core stuff, but because of Moro’s long term suffering Valier goes very easy on him and gentles what he really wants. This is a very intriguing storyline as more characters become involved and more species turn up, the descriptions are really well done and the world building was fascinating and we learn more and more the further into the book we delve.

Now, seriously if you are into space-opera, science fiction, fantasy, hot men, damaged men, intriguing characters and species (that can suck up worlds), angst, danger, plotting and planning, with some really hot sex, then you need to read this book because it is a little gem. P.S. Fingers crossed for more from Moro and Valier.

Blurb: Ten years ago, lovers and best friends Ivo Toreli and Robert Mackenzie were separated by death.

But sometimes life gives you second chances. Life…and a lot of cybernetic enhancements.

Trust Agent 505 may not remember who he was before he worked security for Trust Insurance, but now his prisoner thinks he knows him. This revolutionary named “Mack,” who has stolen one of Trust’s prized possessions, seems to think Agent 505 is named “Ivo,” someone from his past. Someone he once loved more than anyone on any of the inhabited worlds.

Ivo doesn’t remember any of it, of course. But if he’s going to get Trust’s property back from the revolutionaries, he’s going to have to play along.

And if playing along also means sleeping with a handsome, humorous, and slightly dangerous ex-soldier, all the better, right?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  I have never really been a fan of anything Sci-fi, but this was a pretty damn good book if I must say so.  I hadn’t even taken a look at the blurb, so I had no clue what type of book I picked so imagine my surprise when I started reading it.  It is definitely futuristic and unique, a definite new type of story for me.  

Two young boys, orphaned at a young age find themselves together and bond in a way that many do not.  They grew up together, took care of each other and protected the other with fierceness.  Then they became lovers and decided to never be without the other.  Fighting for what they thought was right, Ivo was killed.  Ten years has gone past and Rob finds out that the man he loved, the man he watched die is in fact very much alive.

Ivo or Agent 505 had no memory of anything other then what he was.  Part man and part machine, but still human.  He has been killed many times but always brought back.  His reward is a drug that basically keeps him under the Trust’s hand.  That is until a man who knows him, shows him a different side of himself… one that he, well your just going to have to read the book.

A very fascinating story and I will now have to go back and read the first book in this series.  It is a very entertaining tale and caught my attention from the very start.  This is more than just a fight for the world, but for each other and the love they once had.  I fell in love with the characters and that dog just made a hit with me. 

I can see myself reading this book more than once, way to go!  I would definitely recommend this book.

Thrilled at being named a Chosen, Phoenix Dotir leaves K’Dane to become an artist-monk who will create dimensional art capable of changing worlds. Living by the monastery’s Principles of Purity will surely help him overcome the craving. But he never accounted for star chaser Zadra Solav.

Zadra doesn’t believe in rules and makes his own future. Fate separates him from the man he loves, but one touch renders him helpless to his own desires. Bonding with a monk is forbidden, and Zadra’s family sends him to deep space to avoid disgrace. Unable to give up, Zadra must find a way to reunite with his Chosen.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I really wanted to love this story as I was taken in by the blurb but alas it fell flat for me.  I felt there was too much too soon in the way of details, yet, at other times too little. It made for a frustrating read to me. 

I did not get the incident about Nix getting his mark at fourteen when the story clearly stated it was not to happen until he was eighteen. There was a lot of character POV’s in this story. I felt bogged down at times trying to remember who was who. It honestly felt like several stories in one crammed into one book.

Aside from this the story was interesting as we meet four characters, Nix, Zandra, Riva and Eros not to mention Yoshio. That is a lot of characters all vying for their say and story in this book. I liked the interactions between each character though I felt at times that they tended to be drawn out and not know what they actually wanted. 

I will probably reread this story at some point in the hopes it makes better sense to me than it did.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

I came across Amber Kell when she published her first book awhile back and never stopped reading them. Most of the time they have their serious tones but there is quite a bit of humor mixed in with them that make them even more fascinating for me. Each story will have danger, excitement, adventure, and a touch of kink to them that will keep your attention the whole time, like it does for me. 

Zeir is the king of his kingdom and is loved by all of his people. Many years ago he had lost his mate or so he thought. He grieved for the man and pretty much stayed in his dragon form. So you can imagine his surprise when a shuttle crashes onto his land and comes across his true mate. A mate that was related to the one he thought was his so many years before. 

Colton is a very sweet and sexy young man who just crashed his pod. Colton’s captain was such an ass and changed his navigation causing them to crash. What Colton had never known was he could shift into his dragon form, he had assumed that since he was half dragon that he didn’t really have one. He is such a cute little golden dragon who could spit fire and ice. Only one that Zeir had ever seen once before, in a man that he had thought was his mate. However things are looking up since King Zeir is his mate.

Now I understand what Colton’s father had done, as Seltin was so young when Zeir had told him they were mates, but it was a coward’s way out. However he was scared to mate someone that wasn’t his mate. Blood calls to them, and as it turns out that it was his son who was Zeir’s true mate, things started to look up for them all.

I would have loved if this story had been a bit longer but it was a damn good story. Very fast paced and kept my attention throughout the whole story. The words just seemed to flow right off the pages and the detail was so perfect for this story. I always did love a good dragon shifter and Amber rocked it.

I love how this author doesn’t let the guys become too much alpha for their mates, making their heart bleed when they are hurt and for kicking their own asses when they hurt their mates. I have always enjoyed reading one of Amber Kell’s stories and I can see that it will not change in the future. I also loved how these men will go to the extremes to protect their mates.

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

I had not had the pleasure of reading any of Leah’s books until today, when I was given this series. I am not normally one that will start reading an author’s work that I have not heard of right off the bat. However, for some reason the series name was what caught my attention. I can honestly say that I am very glad to have started reading it. 

The characters were a blast to read about, so damn feisty. I love alphas and omegas, but there is something about one who is neither. One whose life had been thrown for a loop when they were younger. As with Tyrus, who had lost his family at a young age, he is the one that calls to me. 

Tyrus and his friends were sent to Earth to bring back the heirs to the throne. He and his friends had not expected the men to be so damn stubborn and feisty that is for sure. His little mate is trouble with a capital T. He has trust issues that might just cost him Tyrus. With Dante being the top suspect in the kidnapping of their team mate, he is in a bit of a pickle. Tyrus knows that with his past, the loss of his mate would tear him apart, he just needs the ass to see that.

Dante doesn’t trust anyone but his brothers. He also doesn’t like to be bossed around and will kick anyone’s ass who tries. However his next stupid move might just cost him it all. Then the doctor tells them the next shocker.

I enjoyed reading this story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. There is a bit of confusion in this book, as with the others though. It can be just a bit hard to follow with the mixture of characters and keeping them apart. Also there are questions that the story doesn’t answer, but it doesn’t really take away from the story itself for me.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to read the next book.

Blurb: The course of true love never did run smooth. Ryan is settling into his role as a new father and the royal consort of Mikos, the fierce and handsome Prince of Tygeria. He’s still deeply in love and happy—most of the time. But the former Alliance colonel is a bit restless, and even though he loves his child and his mate, he needs a bit more to occupy his time. Mikos thinks giving him more babies to care for will help, but Ryan comes up with a different idea for some diversion and physical challenge by forming his own team for the dangerous Arena Games.

Meanwhile, Haggoz and Kevin are deeply involved in a much more serious game of their own. The king warned Haggoz that punishing his own mate and holding him prisoner would be nearly impossible, but Haggoz can’t bear to be parted from him. Locked in a seemingly endless war between his love for the former marine and his duty to his king, Haggoz is struggling to survive. 

Just when it seems that they’re hopelessly deadlocked, Mikos and Haggoz go on what should be a routine mission against an ARes training facility on a distant moon. When disaster strikes and word gets back to Ryan that Mikos and Haggoz are both in terrible danger, he embarks on a desperate mission to save them and bring them safely home. Ryan finds an unlikely ally in Kevin to help him save the men and discover that even though the course may be rocky, true love will always find its way.

Review: Each book in the Mate of the Tyger Prince collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. 

Ryan loves what he is and his life, however he seems to be missing something. Mikos thinks giving him more babies will fix that, but Ryan has other ideas. It is not what you’re thinking, so get your minds out of the gutters. Haggoz and Kevin are in some big trouble. Haggoz is keeping his mate prisoner and is still on the punishing him part. Too bad he can’t seem to stop having sex with the man. He is being torn in two. Then they are sent on a mission that turns bad, it is up to Ryan to save their asses.

I didn’t much care for the jump between all of the guys. Haggor is a total ass, but he will need both his mate and Ryan if he wants to survive what is going on. Here Ryan is getting depressed and needs to make a plan to fix it. What does one expect after having a baby? Ryan wants to play in the war games, yet his mate has other ideas. It would seem that he has forgotten where his mate has come from and who he is. Never get in the way of a marine. Then you have a man who keeps his mate locked up but can’t stay away from him. I just don’t get it. 

I don’t really care for books that are longer. It just seems to drag stuff out that is boring to me. Don’t get me wrong this book rocks, but it didn’t keep my attention like it should have. I just don’t care for multiple characters having trouble in one book. I did like to hear about Mikos and Ryan, but I was hoping that this would just focus on Haggoz and Kevin. Other than my problems with it, this book did exactly what it was supposed to. It entertained me for most parts. I liked how Ryan and Kevin were the ones to get their mates out of trouble. I felt bad for Kevin though. 

Now the story was pretty damn good, but it didn’t set off any explosions for me. It was a fun read but one that I could have done without. My attention was not caught like it should have which was a bit disappointing in the end. I hope that the next book comes off a bit better to me.

No man in the galaxy inspires more fear than Korbin, the Admiral of the Black. His life as leader of the biggest pirate band in space leaves little room for trust, so when Korbin’s second-in-command disappears without a trace, he suspects the worst.

Zain Strand has left his life as a sex slave behind and risen within the pirate ranks. But he abandons it all to rescue an old friend from recapture by the slavers—even if that means a suicidal confrontation with his old master. He doesn’t expect Korbin’s arrival, doesn’t want Korbin’s help . . . but Korbin gives Zain no choice.

Posing as master and slave to infiltrate a slave auction, Korbin and Zain embark on a journey of lust that rapidly reveals their deeper feelings. When Zain’s old master discovers their ruse, Korbin must do everything in his power to save both their lives and their newfound love.

Publisher’s note: While books #1 and #2 in the Bounty series should be read in order, this book stands alone and can be read without the first two.

Blurb: Brady Garrett is back on Earth. He’s living with his partner Cam and they’re raising his sister Lucy together. Life is better than some feral reffo from Kopa has any right to hope, and Brady knows it. He’s even grateful for it, most of the time. He loves Cam, even though he’s afraid that he’s not good enough for him, and he’s still having nightmares about the alien Faceless.

Cameron Rushton loved being a pilot once, and he still feels the pull of the starlight. He’s building a life with Brady now, and with Lucy. Life is good, even if it’s not without its complications. Both Brady and Cam are dealing with the endless cycle of interviews, tests, and questions that the military hierarchy hopes will reveal the secrets of the aliens who could very easily destroy humanity. They have each other though, and together they’re making it work.

But from out in the black, Kai-Ren is still watching and everything Brady and Cam think they’ve won, they stand to lose all over again.

Review: This is the second book in Dark Space.

I have to say I loved the entire book. It was great to see how Brady works through things throughout. Then Cam and Brady’s connection is restored only to discover it’s not quite right.

It was mind-boggling how well and deep this story takes the reader into understanding how the mind works in regards to relationships, tense situations, etc. I was impressed by how well the story flowed smoothly and the details throughout.

Intense, yet powerful. This book packs quite a punch. It keeps you reading until the very end.

The only thing I found I did not like was the cliffhanger at the end, as I have not heard anything about a third book. I certainly hope there will be though, if not for anything else to answer questions that were unanswered.

When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he’s convinced it’s a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn’t hard to find. He’s the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he’s far from subtle.

Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan’s even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally—especially since neither of them do personal.

Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.

But with the youngest generation of their College to watch over, and threats from within the Fellowship itself, they seemed destined once more to fail.

Though they have no hope of success, they gather their brothers in a new kind of battle: restoring peace to the Fellowship itself. By reviving long-lost arts and seeking out knowledge long assumed lost, they themselves threaten the very peace they hope to create. They unsettle the compromises that have crippled the traditions of their Fellowship.

But in this moment of chaos, the opportunity arises to forge a family that is intended to endure–but it has to begin with them.

Review: This the third book in The Secret Art of Failure series. In this installment, we find Vanni giving a lecture about sage and deciding to become one himself. Kourt has finally accepted his feelings for Vanni. I do have to say though I enjoyed this series it is very confusing at times and left me feeling lost.

That is not to say it was not good though. There is a lot of complexity to this series. So I would suggest you read it from the beginning of the series as some things will confuse you if you pick another book in the series without reading the first. I was glad to see that some things that confused me in book one and two were answered in this one.
Very well written book that draws you into a mysterious and

fascinating world. Full of drama, mystery and two men coming together. As well as twists that leave you spellbound.

Good read.

Blurb: Seven years ago, Jones fell for a heartless man named Carver. A drug addiction, numerous sexual partners, and a lonely lifestyle weren’t enough to fill the void that Carver left in Jones’s chest.

Years later, the two meet under familiar circumstances, and Jones can’t help hoping for affection that Carver can never give him. While Jones tries his best to crawl under Carver’s skin and force him to feel something, he finds himself involved in a political war he had no idea he was fighting. Jones struggles to gasp for air in a dying city that’s sinking fast and pulling him under with wave after wave of addiction and betrayal.

Falling for a loveless man is enough to bring someone as strong as Jones to his knees. Will Jones ever be able to reach into Carver’s chest and bring his cold heart to life?

Review: Jones is part of a team in ENAD, Enforced Necessary Arms Division. He has been enhanced for strength, speed and anything else to help him in his missions. He has been out of the loop for years due to not completing the last mission his team was sent on. He has finally been called back into service only to discover that the man he was once in love with is the leader of the team.

This division was created to do the dirty work of the higher-ups wanting to keep their hands clean in my opinion. Carver seemed cold at first, though I could understand to a point as he’s been modified as well and deemed one of the best. Intense, gritty scenes leave you holding your breath for the outcome.

Although I’m not used to this type of story per se I found it intriguing and fascinating. This story keeps your attention from the beginning. I was impressed with the details of the technology in the story. Well written.

Great read.
