Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 198 - Accelerating Universe by Nicola Claire, A Brush with Shadows by Anna Lee Huber

Accelerating Universe (The Sector Fleet, #1)Accelerating Universe by Nicola Claire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ana Kereama and Captain John Jameson have a story to tell. They are leaving Earth behind and the voyage starts out almost being destroyed. Turns out that is the least of their problems. While Ana and John take turns as the point of view there is another character who is vitally important to the plot. Seems that Pavo the AI is another important character in the plot. It also seems that there are people on board who want to change how the journey ends and who is in control. This is a very well written and plotted story line that manages to mix a romance in with the danger and tension. The main characters are very well drawn and the side characters add interest and action to the story.   A very interesting story that should appeal to all Science Fiction Romance fans as well as just plain Science Fiction fans.

A Brush with Shadows (Lady Darby Mystery #6)A Brush with Shadows by Anna Lee Huber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sebastian Gage and Lady Kiera Darby are the main characters in this historical mystery series. They are married and are returning to Sebastian's home after he has been away for 15 years. Someone is missing and Sebastian and Kiere are asked to help. The house is not a happy place and it never was one for Sebastian. As we meet all the characters the past keeps coming up and the waters just seem to get muddier. I enjoyed meeting Sebastian and Kiera. They are two very strong characters who often clash but are still a very powerful team. This is book six in a six book series but I had no trouble keeping up with the story line. Having read A Brush with Shadow I do want to go back and pick up the first five books. The history between Sebastian and Kiera sounds very interesting and well worth a look.

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