Frost Station Alpha: The Complete Series by Ruby Lionsdrak
Science Fiction Romance
Lieutenant Tamryn Pavlenko wants to make a name for herself in the GalCon Fleet, so naturally she requests an assignment on the infamous Frost Station Alpha, where pirate attacks are a way of life. The remote research outpost holds secrets that many are willing to kill for, and Tamryn is prepared to protect it from brigands, mobsters, and mercenaries—or whatever the galaxy throws at her.
The brochure, however, failed to mention the genetically engineered super humans who were supposed to have all been killed in a war that ended more than a century ago. It seems they’re not only alive, but they want the station. Oh, and one of them decides he wants Tamryn too.
This powerful warrior might be sexy and intriguing, but he was bred to kill, and she can’t let herself forget that he’s the enemy.
This ebook contains the complete Frost Station Alpha serial, previously published in six installments.
I feel like I could just cut and past the review for Black Ice Heart here. Both had an element that was a big turn off for me. In Frost Station Alpha a group of genetically engineered super humans kill almost everyone on the space station and then demand help making their planet livable. Really!! Who would think killing everyone would bring the help you need to survive? Not me.
Then one of the men doing the killing becomes the alpha hero. This is not my choice for a hero. He did change as the story progressed and it did not seem to bother others who reviewed the book. I guess we all react to characters in our own way.
Ruby Lionsdrake writes a very well plotted story and Frost Station Alpha is no exception. The world building is very well done. The characters are developed. The story moves at a nice pace. It was a story I expected to really like but I just could not get past the first action of the main male character.
Ruby Lionsdrake published Frost Station Alpha in 2015.
