Warriors of the Lathar, #1-3 by Mina Carter Review
Captured by the Alien Lord (Sci-fi Alien Invasion Romance) (Warriors of the Lathar Book 1) - Mina Carter
Saved by the Alien Lord: Sci-fi Alien Invasion Warrior Romance (Warriors of the Lathar Book 2) - Mina Carter
Bonded to the Alien Lord: Sci-fi Alien Warrior Romance (Warriors of the Lathar Book 3) - Mina Carter

He's big, sexy and even his muscles have muscles. Any other day, she'd climb him like a tree... If he hadn't captured her, and her entire base that is.

Sergeant Cat Moore has a little problem. Well, actually a big problem... a big alien warrior sized problem. When her base is attacked and boarded by a Lathar war group, she finds herself in the sights of their leader, Tarrick K'Vass.

The strong, not so silent and ruthless type, Tarrick's duty as a war commander means little time for himself. With no women of their own, a base full of women is a bounty he can't ignore. Nor can he ignore the little human whose voice called out to him across the galaxy, a woman he'll stop at nothing to make his own. Even if it means a little blackmail...

 

2nd Book

 

Earth girls might be popular...but they're definitely not easy.

Kidnapped by sexy alien warriors, Cat and the women of the Sentinel Five base are looking for a way home. Their captors might be ripped, hot alphas looking for that one special woman, but these girls have this little thing against being slaves. Even if their leader is well on his way to stealing Cat's heart as well as her body...

Then a new player enters the arena. A dangerous rival war-commander has challenged the K'Vass claim on terran held space and all it's women. Tarrick K'Vass can't afford to let any of the earth women be captured, especially not his little human, Cat.

When his human is taken, he'll do anything to rescue her... Anything. Up to and including starting an intergalatic war.

 

3rd Book

 

oday is a good day to... get married?

Kidnapped by her very own alien hunk, Cat Moore is rapidly adapting to life as the chosen woman of bad-ass War Commander Tarrick K'Vass. It's not so bad. Her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off. They're married without so much as a bended knee in sight, then summoned to the Imperial Court so the Emperor can bless their union.

Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself. Like being a freaking alien prince.

But someone doesn't want humans and lathar getting it on, and they certainly don't like the possibility of little human-lathar babies. In fact, they'd be more than happy if Cat and the other women didn't survive past the wedding.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Try a bride whose alien wedding just got gatecrashed. Seems humans might be more like the Lathar than anyone thought...

 

 

Review

While I had fun with this one and the next two in the serial, it is stupidly short. There is no reason for this love story to be broken into three pieces. Now, the breaking is nice as you feel hopeful about the romance but it feels wrong to me any way. Ends serial romance rant.

 

The heroine is a great never say die clever and practical wonderful lead. If you like alien abduction romance, this is a fun twist with an enjoyable hero.

 

However, there is crazy sauce that just gets ignored and not dealt with that might make some readers crazy. 

 

The other kickass women in the book add to the goodness for me. 

 

2nd Book

 

This middle part of the series picks up and our heroine shows how badass she is. Again, why isn't this all one book? 

 

3rd Book

 

This book brings us to the wedding with more action and getting to know the planet the aliens are from.

 

Again, hate serials but I bought them all and enjoyed them. All out at the same time for me so little pain.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2016-05-01 04:49
The Fear of Change
The Midwich Cuckoos - John Wyndham

I'm going to have to be honest and say that I really didn't like this book all that much, which from glancing over my friends' reviews seems to put me at odds with pretty much all of them (or at least the ones who actually wrote something). Mind you, the one thing that I did like about it (or at least my copy) is the little sticker on it that says £1.50, which brings back memories of the time I was in London and discovered this really cool second-hand bookshop in Leicester Square (which is where I actually purchased it). Actually, when I am over there later this year I'm going to have to go back into the bookshop, go up to the owner, and say 'Thucydides'.

I guess the reason that I didn't particularly like this book, other than the fact that after the first couple of chapters it became really dry and boring) was that it reminded me of this film that I didn't like all that much. Well, I probably shouldn't say that it reminded me of the film because the film was actually based on the book:

Here is the poster of the French version of the film:

 

http://www.classichorrorposters.com/4061/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/village-of-the-damned-movie-poster-1960-1020482790-1.jpg

 

 

(I'm studying French at the moment, so I have this fascination with anything and everything written in French, not that I can actually read it).

 

Anyway, for those who haven't seen the film (or read the book because I suspect, or hope, that most people on Goodreads go for the book as opposed to the film, unless the book is pretty bad and one simply wants to watch a film where one doesn't have to think all that much) the story is about that village that basically loses a day – namely everybody falls asleep and when they wake up all of the woman are pregnant. When they give birth the children (or actually Children as they have a capital C) are somewhat not quite human – they don't possess any of the genetic traits of the parents, and they have these powerful psychic powers that allows them to communicate telepathically and to control people's minds. Also the Children seem to learn, and to age, much faster than normal humans. The rest of the book is about what the authorities are going to do with the Children.

 

Despite the fact that I wasn't a huge fan of this book there were still a couple of interesting concepts that came out of it, one of them being that of evolution. In fact near the end of the book a discussion arises as to one of the flaws of evolution – the missing link. This is still a hotly debated topic even today, despite the fact that many of us secularists tend to write off the idea of intelligent design as being some crack-pot religious fundamentalist ideal (even though I do believe that they have some good points). However the idea that comes out of this book is that humanity was originally seeded by an alien race and that the Children happen to be the next stage of our evolution. To many of us that seems to be almost as out there as the idea of intelligent design (though in many ways the two theories are actually supportive of each other, especially when the concept of the Christian God is removed from creationism, which ends up being, yep, you guessed it, Intelligent design).

 

The problem with this argument (as is the case with any argument) is that no matter what you state your position as being you are going to inevitably rub somebody up the wrong way, which is one of the problems that I face being a left-wing Christian. If I say that there are merits in the concept of intelligent design I piss off the secularists while if I make the suggestion that I believe that there are merits in the concept of evolution then I piss off the Christians (or at least the Christian fundamentalists). However I understand both sides of the argument – by taking out a the existence of a divine creator then then there is no foundations for our legal system – it simply becomes objective to the point where we simply do things that we believe in our own heart to be right. However the opposite problem arises when we put the concept of a divine creator in place – we begin to become incredibly legalistic and the idea of 'do unto others as you would have done unto you' goes out of the window and the church suddenly becomes a form of morality police, where the church's idea of what is right and wrong becomes the only idea, despite the fact that their interpretation of the law may not actually be correct.

 

This also creates another ethical dilemma – what to do with the Children. It becomes clear that the Children aren't actually all that friendly, and will act in ways to protect themselves. However the story takes place in England, which means that one simply cannot bomb the village out of existence (as happened in Russia) or simply murder all of the children (as happened in other places). As is suggested, anybody that takes any action against the Children is doomed to failure, either because the Children will become aware of what is happening and put a stop to it, or the political fallout will be so great that the party that decides to act will be cast out into the political wilderness forever. However, they simply cannot do nothing simply because in doing so will mean that the Children will become ever more powerful, and when they actually become a threat then it will be too late.

 

Mind you, it seems to also be the case of a fear of the unknown. If the Children are the next stage of human evolution then what is actually happening is that humanity is preventing their own progress. Actually, this seems to be one of the traits of humanity – stifling our own progress. Intelligent children are teased and bullied at school, and competent people are passed over for promotion in favour of the well spoken and connected people. Funding is cut to the arts and the sciences in favour of business friendly subjects, and a movement towards a green energy future is constantly assaulted because there is too much money to be made out of fossil fuels. Most of all, one of the things that prevent many of us doing what we would love to do is that there is no money in it so we are left stuck in mind-numbing office jobs making money for people who have way to much of it anyway.

Darkest Nights....
Darkest Nights (Scifi Alien Invasion Romance) (The Time After Series Book 2) - Catherine Vale

I couldn't wait to start reading this book, thank goodness I had it already waiting in my kindle app for me. 'Darkest Nights' is book 2 in Catherine's new series "The Time After", please read this series in order as the storyline follows directly after were book 1 'Darkest Days' left off.

I was once again brought into the future, Celia & Hawke along with the rest of the team learn new things about the aliens that have taken over top side of Earth. As well as trying to keep the men on the missions alive, Celia & Hawke make personal discoveries.

 

I'm going to leave it at that, you really need to read this series for yourself to find out how hot, intense & action-packed this book & series is. I couldn't put it down & can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Darkest Days.....
Darkest Days (Scifi Alien Invasion Romance) (The Time After Series Book 1) - Catherine Vale

As a fan of Catherine Vale's I couldn't wait to read 'Darkest Days' a new genre & book 1 of her new series "The Time After". I started reading 'Darkest Days' unsure, was I going to love Catherine writing Sci-fi Alien? Was the work going to be as indepth as what I've come to expect from Catherine?? I needn't have worried about anything.

Once I started I was transported into the future, where alien bugs have turned Earth's cities into nests & the surviving population around the world (well I hope there is more people around the world) have gone to living underground. Where going top side for supplies & hopefully killing off some of the aliens inhabiting what is left of the city we first encounter Celia Parsons, SWAT snipper on a mission to destroy a nest.... Things don't turn out so well when their coms devices don't work at a critical time, upon arriving back at base Celia lets the military man in charge Hawke, know what happened...

Oh my, what an intense, dramatic start to the series, I can't wait to read the next books in the series.

Freeform: An Alien Invasion Romance Series (FreeForm Series Book 1) by Orrin Jason Bradford
FreeForm: An Alien Invasion Romance Series (FreeForm Series Book 1) - Orrin Jason Bradford,Victor Habbick,Ann T. Swift,Kris Wallace

Freeform: An Alien Invasion Romance Series (FreeForm Series Book 1) by Orrin Jason Bradford began with the swooping of a helicopter low over a mountain in North Carolina. Pat Vogt asked the pilot, James, a Vietnam veteran, to use more caution.  That drew a sly wink, but he complied.  She was accustomed to sly winks from her male co-workers.  She was five-foot, two-inches & had muscular curves that made men stop & look twice.

She worked out in a gym or karate dojo to stay strong & healthy.

 

Pat was part of the new team B.I.U.F.O. (Bureau of Investigation of Unidentified Flying Objects) designated to investigate the 'Waynesboro NC UFO Case'.  She was forced into early retirement under suspicious circumstances. She was a stubborn woman who then established a private investigation agency.

 

Doc Allan Pritchard was the Waynesboro Veterinarian.  He had a major secret about T.J. "'He is a growing boy,' he answered, but the thought made him nervous.  So far, since telling Kendra the fable about the growth problem, she'd kept her word not to say anything to anyone, but how long could she be counted on not to let something slip?  He felt as though he was skating across a lake of thin ice, listening to the dull thuds of the ice cracking.  Living a life of lies was becoming increasingly uncomfortable."

 

This was a fast moving, exciting book about alien invasion, genetic engineering with a touch of romance. I gave it five stars start to finish.

 

I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.
