Starseer, pilot, and animal lover Jelena Marchenko wants to prove to her parents that she's ready to captain her own freighter and help run the family business. When she finally talks them into getting a second ship and letting her fly it, it doesn't faze her that the craft is decades old and looks like a turtle. This is the chance she's craved for years. But it's not long before the opportunity to rescue mistreated lab animals lures her from her parentally approved cargo run and embroils her in a battle between warring corporations.

Didn't love quite as much as the 8 fallen empire books (and other spin-offs). Still a very enjoyable read, performance v. good.

The brilliant new novel from the author of the New York Times best seller Everything I Never Told You. Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down. In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned - from the layout of the winding roads to the colours of the houses to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead.

Not great literature but an engaging story. Whimsical and sad in places. Good summer read

Imogen Peters knows she's a pawn. She's been abducted from Earth, held prisoner, and abducted again. So when she gets a chance at freedom, she takes it with both hands, not realizing that doing so will turn her from pawn to kingmaker. Captain Camlar Kalor expected to meet an Earth woman on his current mission, he just thought he'd be meeting her on Larga Ways, under the protection of his Battle Center colleague. Instead, he and Imogen are thrown together as prisoners in the hold of a Class 5 battleship.

An intelligent and complex storyline with effortlessly enjoyable world building and detail. All the characters, human, alien and AI,were very well written and likeable. A rare treat. I would definitely recommend all three books in the series, best read in order: Dark horse, Dark Deeds, Dark minds.

Amber has made a deal with the devil. To protect her incubus boyfriend, Irix, from the angels, Amber has agreed to journey to Hel and assist the humans there with their failing agricultural program. It's a project the botany major and half elf/half succubus would normally love, but the elves are sticklers for genetic purity and consider her an abomination.

I loved this short story. Amber is an enchanting central character although I am missing Irix as much as she is! New readers should at least start with book 1 of the half breed series or possibly read a few of the authors imp series first.

Monsters do exist... and they're the good guys. Lillian Rosewood leads an ordinary, boring life working as the manager of a psychiatric hospital. The highlights of her day, other than her skinny hot chocolate, are the hunky guards who work in the secure section. Until a late-night emergency is wheeled in. Captain Jack Harper is insane, drop-dead gorgeous... and just had his abdomen shredded. Despite the fact they're not an emergency room, Lillian can't turn him away and risk a death on her hands.

Original take on werewolf genre. Great sci-fi fantasy backdrop to an exciting and well paced story. Likeable H & h. Spoilt for me by cloying over sentimentality in the dialog, sadly common in romance books, which lost the 5 star rating. Also fated mates thing which is not my preference. Excellent narrator. I will be trying the follow on books despite faults.
