I really enjoyed it!!!I'm not one for futuristic space books but I really enjoyed this one. Set in the year 2215, space travel of course is the norm as well as a common peaceful alliance called...you guessed it... The Alliance. There is a pretty well formed group called the Xylons who adapt a conquer with violence, enslave, deplete, and get out when it comes to new worlds. Unfortunately, the Alliance didn't eliminate this group fast enough and now the threat is a big one. Stuck in the middle of this is Alliance officer Jamie Cartwright and other world healer Elija...and that is all the details I'm giving you.Jamie is a great character that easy to like and once you throw Elija into the mix you just have to root for them no matter is happening. The pace of the story is pretty fast from the get go and only eases up when developing the relationship between the two main characters. I found myself trying to stay awake just so I could she what would happen next. If you are a fan of Natalie Debrabandere's other books, this will not disappoint and is probably my favorite of hers so far.
Absolutely delightful!A crash landing and Jamie has to learn a whole new life with people who know nothing about technology. A beautiful woman takes care of her. Jamie's life is changed forever. That's not all, the future of the whole planet is at stake. This book has everything I look for in a great story; characters that had me spellbound, two different worlds, ruthless creatures, fantasy, mystery, amazing actions and a sizzling romance. Not to forget an excellent writing style. There is a good amount of tension built towards the end that had me on the edge of my seat. I haven't a single negative thing to say about it. It was an extremely pleasant read and I'm very impressed by this author. This book is definitely worth 10 stars
Okay space opera romance - at the end of my review I have included a warning tag about the ending.This is an ok space opera romance that travels to a different planet and war finds them there. The characters are good and decent, but many have a few ulterior motives. I do not like the ending, and while I know those two love each other, I think Kat did more for Jaime than Elija ever did. Elija is a naive child that simply follows Atlea and she does love Jaime but is little selfish because she doesn't care about where Jaime grew up and her duties to the alliance.Kathryn O'Connor loves Jaime and moved heaven and earth to save her love. She loves Jaime enough to let her go. I thought that even though Kathryn didn't get much screen time that she was a better match for Jaime.Did not like Altea at all, she was manipulating and did not care about Jaime as a person only what she could get out of her.Spoilers- I debated whether to include this part, but The ritual suicide of Jaime at the end did not sit well with me.
his concept has the potential to be a great space opera. Unfortunately this novel lacked something important. It's still an interesting and decent read. But it felt like the action is not enough, conflict is a bit too abstract and too easily solved. the romance is also a bit vague as in you don't really FEEL the passion and love and the ending is quite confusing. Yeah sure i can make a guess as to what happens etc. but in my opinion that's not in our job description as reader (unless we're dealing with a mystery or detective novel or something in that vein).
I absolutely adored reading this book. The story was great and I'm a sucker for some scifi/dystopian books so if you have a f/f pairing in the mix you can't go wrong with that. There wasn't a single moment where I thought it was too slow or too boring or anything like that, I have absolutely 0 negative things to say. I just flew through it because I just had to know what would happen next (even if I was actually spoiled for the ending, it didn't matter). Both Jamie and Elija were lovable characters and I loved the chemistry between the two. I really adored Ayael too, though I wish we maybe got to know a few more characters and see different relationships between them too. I wouldn't mind a few more chapters of just Jamie and Ayael bonding or in general just her adapting to everything and everyone. I would've also loved to see a bit more of the "modern" world and how much the technology advanced, as well as the language of the people. I also really appreciate that Jamie was hinted to be more of a butch character since there's quite a lack of those among f/f stories.A few thoughts about the ending. (view spoiler)[I'm usually a person that's really capable of ignoring things in media that I don't like so if you ask me both Jamie and Eilja are alive in the non-spiritual world and Jamie just got a bit too drunk before Elija managed to wake her up. That's what I'm going with. In all fairness, the ending was a bit ambiguous. I'm just a fan of wlw not dying, y'know? But even if not, I wouldn't complain too much. (hide spoiler)] No matter how you look at it, the book was beautifully written and the relationship between the two women was nicely developed. Definitely recommend this book to everyone who's looking for a good f/f story! I can't wait to read more books by this author.
While the story is good to read, the implications about the 'simple' people, and their living in harmony with the environment are pure neo-romanticism.
Great storyI really liked the mix of sci-fi and primitive societies that this story presented. I think the final choice was interesting.
Started off strongly, but went downhill quiet rapidly
