Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 162 - The Wrong Stars by Tim Pratt, Eye of the Mother by Greta van der Rol, The Fated Stars by Veronica Scott

The Wrong StarsThe Wrong Stars by Tim Pratt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What happens when everything you think you know turns out to be wrong. Seems that is true for both humans and the first and only aliens they have encountered. All changes when the crew of the White Raven find a ship that left Earth 500 years ago. One of the original crew is in cold sleep and when she wakes she has news and new technology that changes everything. Some things are solved, much is revealed and a lot is left to find out. Pratt has a contract for two more book set the Axiom universe. I for one am looking forward to returning and seeing what will happen next.

Eye of the Mother (Dryden Universe)Eye of the Mother by Greta van der Rol
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brent Walker and Tian Axmar are together almost by accident. Tian needs a ride off planet and Brent and his small freighter are available. Something bad is happening to both humans and Yrmaks. It is Tian's job to find out what. She and Brent work well together but Tian has secrets that mean she and Brent cannot stay together after the problem is solved. Look for a interesting twist at the end. I hope that means we will see more of the two. I alway like to see characters from previous stories in the Dryden Universe and one of my favorite Admirals plays a small part is Eye of the Mother. Hope to see more of him in the future as well.

The Fated Stars: The Sectors SF Romance SeriesThe Fated Stars: The Sectors SF Romance Series by Veronica Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Larissa Channer cannot get the fortune teller off of her mind. She is a woman who cannot tolerate any form of slavery so she decides to act to free Samell who is being held against his will. This is the first time we have a story that features a male who has been kidnapped and sold so his powerful empathic powers can be used for the profit of others. Larissa and Samell end up on a very dangerous journey. Change has arrived and Samell and his people have come under the protect. That protection just has to find the two. I loved how everything worked out for the two. This story helps put a period to this group of Sectors Romances. Like all the others in the series there is danger, tension and plenty of romance.
