Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 125 - Sagitta by Ruby Lionsdrake, Relaunch Mission by Robyn Bachar, Contingency Plan by Robyn Bachar

Sagitta (Star Guardians, #3)Sagitta by Ruby Lionsdrake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Those Earth women who were captured and then rescued are still on the Star Guardian's ship. This time they are headed home but wouldn't you know - something dangerous changes the entire trip. While all of this is going on Dr. Tala Matapang and Captain Sagitta "Sage" of Dethocoles are still butting heads. Wonder if something more than disagreements are at the heart of the arguments. I love how SF writers often get political statements woven into their stories. Sagitta have one about medicine and how we often replace healthy living with pills. I loved it because I agree. I also really like the series. This is book three of a five book ark and we leave Tala and Sage with their HEA but the crew of the ship in trouble.

Relaunch Mission (The Galactic Cold War, #1)Relaunch Mission by Robyn Bachar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A familiar trope but it works well in Relaunch Mission. Captain Lindana Nota and Lieutenant Gabriel Steele have a history and not a pretty one. Now Gabriel is on Lindana's ship and all hell is about to break out. Seems that things Gabriel believed are not what they seemed and Lindana's crew is about to get caught in the middle of a whole lot of trouble. About to get caught - seems that they have been there on the last few mission they just did not know it. Very nice world building and back story. Interesting characters and a very good plot. Nothing is solved but there is a great set up for the next books in the series.

Contingency Plan (The Galactic Cold War, #2)Contingency Plan by Robyn Bachar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Closer to a answer but not there yet. Jiang Chen has only partial memories of her past life but she has discovered that she has something in her brain that can be used to leak information about her crew. She is off with Security Chief Ryder Salani to find answers. Some questions are answered but some information about the big picture is still missing. What is answered is the HEA for Jiang and Ryder. They are a great couple - each with problems that cause them to back away at first. A very nice HEA and a great lead up to the next book in the series.

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
