Electric Singularity by Debrah Deumont
Electric Singularity - Debrah Deumont

This didn't work for me. Theo, the master and the ship owner, was too dull, too slow for a successful smuggler and unnecessary brutal. And horny. Like all the time. Leon did all the work getting Theo out of trouble, and turned from I hate you to can't live without you in a span of an hour (tho based on what, I am not sure. Maybe his brain got fried too much.) I am that one spoilsport, sorry, but I can't give the story more than 1.5 stars. I am not sure yet if I want to round it up or down. Gonna sleep on it.

Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits by Lyn Gala
Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits - Lyn Gala

This installment brings very little to Liam/Ondry relationship while they are visiting human home-base planet. Perhaps the Rawnt gain some new perspective on how we, humans, function, but being human I found myself bored.

The story goes round and round and repeats itself from every person's POV possible. Disappointed :/

Gyrfalcon (Taking Shield #1) by Anna Butler
Gyrfalcon - Anna Butler

Warning: open relationship that some readers might see as cheating.

Before you begin reading, please, keep in mind that this books is, first and foremost, a military sci-fi, not a romance.

There is an established couple that struggles with the situation where one of the partners (the MC) is home only 2 weeks out of 10 (hence open relationship, both men are OK with it).
There is a father-son relationship where the father does not approve of his son's (MC's) partner and his choice of profession.
There is a war going on and the MC is separated from his Shield (spec.ops) unit, forced to work with and rely on a different brunch of military. More conflict/interaction with his father ensues as they are forced to work together to collect intel on the alien enemies.

Finally, at 70% another MC (I know, I know, late, right? but it's a sci-fi, not a romance, remember?) and another POV emerges, and if you are looking for a passionate turbulent relationship, this is the part that rules :D

Chaos Station
Chaos Station - Jenn Burke,Kelly Jensen

DNF-ed at 55%. One star for what I could stand to read.

 

The following is my personal opinion and my own impression of the book. I understand everyone else is loving it to pieces, but I managed to only last 55% before my patience and pain tolerance ran out.

 

Maybe it's because I've just finished absolutely brilliant Magpie Lord series, maybe it's because the characters are flat, boring, repetitious and predictable comparing to the vibrant personages of another brilliant series, "Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts", but I found "Chaos" to be an excruciatingly painful read.

 

Just a few thoughts on the characters:

 

Captain Elias. Too flat of a character; at times, under enough pressure, he even manages to cave in into a negative dimension, where he becomes completely invisible, like an annoying mosquito you try to tune out. Can't seem to get pass two lines: "He (Zed) is dangerous." and "I want him/you (Zed) off my ship." That's after he got his greedy paws on a good lump of cash from the above mentioned Zed.

 

Zed, your average martyr. A poor (not in a monetary sense), damaged yet noble soldier on a mission to save his fellow sister-in-arms gone rogue. A shy, humble trillionaire, who doesn't want to impose on anyone or, god forbid, say hi to his own loving siblings. It might get them in trouble. Why? Flick is here to explain, of course.

 

Then there is Flick. Fix. Whatever. He fixes shit. From microwaves to spaceships. A hacker with a golden heart. A poor, damaged, noble (you guessed it all) soul. He is here, it seems. for the sole purpose of explaining things and feelings to the other characters (aka "info dump" to us, readers). Maybe he is here for sex, too  ...I don't remember, neither do I care.

 

All in all - a predictable, boring piece of writing, chaotic and redundant, looping onto itself every other page. Frustrating.

Beside A Black Tarn (Brimstone #4) by Angel Martinez
Beside a Black Tarn (Brimstone Book 4) - Angel Martinez,Erika Orrick

There will be more! =)

4.5 stars.
Despite an "it was dark and stormy night" opening which surprised a wtf moment out of me, yet amused Shax, the book is just as good as the previous ones.

A new character is introduced to motley crew of Brimstone: Maximilian (my favorite name!), a brave tiny bugger (quite literally) and a singer. He saves another stormy night the day and all of Brimstone crew with Heck's help. AND, I hope I am not mistaken here, becomes Leopold's partner and Shax's son-in-law. Tho for the life of me I can't figure out how things can work between a hedgehog and a millipede @.@

This installment is an opening to many more grand and not so grand, but, I am sure, just as humorous adventures. Do not miss it :D
