Wonderful new spin-off to her The Drift series! Cyborgs, Vardarians, Torskis, humans , and, please, beware of the murder chickens! Well, they made me laugh, which this author is great at!
Welcome to planet Liberty, and the colony of Haven. A newly founded planet, with a newly released cyborg population, a new contingent of Vardarians seeking a new life outside their old home world, and, basically, a whole new opportunity to explore a lot of everything. Anything goes here - just respect everyone, be willing to embrace a new life and new possibilities. I can't wait to read more!
Shadow - cyborg, Denz - Torski, & Kade - Vardarian. All single, all alone, all looking to atone or to at least make things better for others, for various reasons. None of them looking for love, but each getting sucked into the maelstrom of fate. Can they overcome their past mistakes and regrets, or will their pasts overcome them?
Read this thoroughly enjoyably sexy, and sometimes humorous, rocket boosted scifi romance and discover a whole new world with them!
Starting a new series is hard, but this one builds on the much loved Drift world. The writing brings you into each scene and the overall landscape comes alive. When I was reading this book I was totally entranced. One of my favorite characters (Phaedra) shows up to bring her witty banter and Denz has been floating in and out of the Drift in other books. But the new colony of Haven is filled with outcasts. The freed cyborgs are finding their new normal, and Shadow is also trying to reinvent herself. Denz is trying to guide the integration of the cyborgs, Vardarians, and even planning to bring in some humans to this new society. Kade is disillusioned with the politics and “cast” system of his home planet, so he became a trader. The way this trio comes together is cool and angsty and filled with potholes they have to cross, and we get to go with them. With just enough action, adventure, and some hot sexy times this is a sci-fi romance must read.
Just when I thought the author’s world couldn’t get any better, she creates a brand new offshoot series for me to fall in love with. I enjoyed how the characters found a life they thought had been denied them with just a shift of the breeze. The author really takes us on emotional journey with this book, all about acceptance and growth and learning how to rely on others. Then she threw in the intense danger and excitement that is a hallmark of her books increasing the enjoyment and the excitement to reach the end and the HEA. I am not sure how the author will manage to surpass this one, but I can’t wait to read the next book and find out.
What a fantastic beginning for a new series! I really loved the characters and the new world the author is creating within the Drift Universe. There were cameos by old friends and we met lots of new ones, too!
Shadow is a cyborg learning to live in her own, but still dealing with the effects from the actions of her “sister”. Will people think she’s an assassin like Nyx? Denz & Kade both have their own pasts to deal with and will need to find the courage to put them aside for Shadow’s love.
This is such a good story, and along with the story of Shadow, Kade & Denz, we get to see how the colony starts to take shape; the decisions that are being made and the inhabitants leaning to overcome differences to create a home for everyone. There is so much potential in this new colony and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
A richly told story of a safe Haven for Vardarians and Cyborgs in the Drift. Shadow is attracted to Denz; Kade discovers Shadow is the mate fated for him. You’ll have to read to discover how this threesome sorts things out. Just let me say that Kade has some impulse control issues that led him to make some unwise decisions. This is so exciting! Some hot romance, emotional healing, adventure (it’s risky business), and a soul-satisfying outcome. I love it!
Her Alien Mates is a smart story of trust, forgiving oneself and love. Shadow has a past she isn’t proud of but is learning to start over. Kade is in danger of letting his past destroy his future. Denz needs to let go of the past so he can have a future. Watching these three learn and grow will make your heart sing. The sexy times will make you sweat and the whole story will make you feel great.
Shadow is trying very hard to start a new life in the colony. She is trying to be non threatening and make friends. She has a crush on a Gordon but he avoids her at all costs. Then Kade, a Vardarian trader shows up. He is in some trouble. But one day at the local bar and he meets his mate. But now the Torski has decided rhe wants Shadow too. Shadow makes an offer they can't refuse. Loved it. It was sweet.
Susan continues to develop stories and themes and adventures she started in The Drift or Nova Force. It's fun to find out what happened to the cyborgs n other characters once they got the planet they worked for in a previous book or two. It's a good excuse to reread the previous books which is enjoyable and to continue the adventure. We need all these in Audible too so you can go about your day listening to them as you do other things and can enjoy them even if you have old eyes. This particular book is needed now when so many in our society are so intolerant of anyone whose ideas are different from their own.
Haven is coming together and growing by leaps and bounds. This really was a perfect triad with three different species, two who had lost a vital piece of what they had considered would be their future only to find something better. Each has helped the others grow and become better.
