Nuclear War & Space Pirates – The Heights of Perdition by C S Johnson @C_S_Johnson13
The Heights of Perdition: A Science Fiction Romance Series (The Divine Space Pirates Book 1) - C. S. Johnson,Jennifer Sell

 

The Heights of Perdition (The Divine Space Pirates, #1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

C S Johnson has created a world that was destroyed by a nuclear holocaust and it is easy to picture the devastation and the struggle of the people to survive.

 

The Heights of Perdition takes us from the Earth to Outer Space and back again.

 

It was easy to figure out where the story was going but I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

 

The people of New Hope, which is formerly New York City, live underground. That alone is enough to creep me out. Above ground is desolate and barren. I do love that C S has saved one giant tree and Aeris sneaks out to spend time in it. She has an independent streak, so when it comes time for her to graduate and join the Military Academy, her lifelong dream, her father nixes that idea. She is crushed, but I too, think she is better suited doing something else. She has a green thumb and they are in dire need of someone with her skills.

 

I can’t imagine the life of the people Serious. No laughs. No fun. The leaders say jump, the people say, how hi. No free thinking allowed.

 

Exton Shepherd hijacked the Perdition because he felt he had no choice. It was his father’s invention and he was not about to let anyone misuse it. Him and his crew lived on the spaceship, but they still had to return to Earth for water. Their lives are full of all the things that make us human. All the emotions that entails. And theyare allowed to show them.

 

When the two come together, we know what’s going to happen. But, for me, that’s okay. Just because I know how the story goes, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it. And I did.

 

All the things that make us human are exposed, the good and bad, the misuse of power, the demand to be obeyed, greed, and love and laughter.

 

The Heights of Perdition by C S Johnson is thought provoking and frightening. What would the world be like after nuclear war? C S Johnson gives us a glimpse of some possibilities. I would love to read more.

 

The only thing I hated was the cliffhanger…but the trilogy is complete and even comes in a boxed set. So…grab your copy now if you love science fiction or world ending stories.

Wray by M.K. Eidem
Wray (Tornians Book 2) - M.K. Eidem

Far less typos than in the first book. :)

Although this is book two in the series, it takes place before Grim and tells us how Wray, who is the emperor, found his Empress and fell in love.
The beginning was dragging and a bit unbelievable. What was the chance of them crashing near a cave with both hot and cold water and surviving more than a week with only a few energy bars. Really? 
It also wasn't believable how quickly Kim got over being raped for two weeks. Yes, she had her reason to trust Wray but it was still far-fetched. 
The story told more about Tornian empire, the Goddess and the curse and all this information was really interesting. I liked how Kim found herself, got more independent, but she also annoyed me because of what she thought about her sister's fate and how she constantly stressed how much she wanted to be a better person. Wray wasn't as fascinating as a main character but I liked him. I even understood his reasons for lying at the beginning of the story.

Grim by M.K. Eidem
Grim - M.K. Eidem

This book needs serious editing, but the storyline and characters were really good.

About the plot:
500 years ago Tornian emperor did something so awful their Goddess cursed the whole race. As a result less and less females were born. At first it was celebrated because Tornians were warriors, but then they realized something needed to be done to prevent extinction. 
So, nowadays females are protected at all cost. There are Joining Ceremonies where females can choose the warrior they want to join with. There's no love or affection, just things male has to give, so that his bloodline could continue. After the birth warrior gets the child and the female can leave to choose another male, who has enough wealth to give her things she desires.
Things change when a compatible race has been found and twelve unprotected females are taken. Yes, you guessed correctly. The women are snatched from Earth.
Lisa is a widow with two small children, who is taken while visiting her husband's grave. When she wakes in a spaceship and the other women find out that the aliens separated mother from her children Tornians have a mutiny in their hands. But then a scarred warrior Grim, who is actually a king and emperor's brother, offers to retrieve Lisa's children if the woman is ready to join with him. Lisa is not stupid. She knows these bastards will never release her, so, she accepts Grim's offer, when the warrior promises that he will be the only male she has to join with. 
But there are several problems - because of his scars no female sees Grim fit and worthy to join with. Tornian females think that because Grim got scarred in a battle, he is not capable of protecting them. Therefore, Grim taking Lisa and her children is against the law and brings a heap of problems in its wake. And of course, Lisa's children are daughters. Something Grim discover not until he goes with Lisa to get the children. Now Grim has three females in his care and there a quite a lot of males in Tornian, who see it as a big mistake.

My thoughts:
The story was fast-paced, exciting, and even though there were some obvious turns in a plot, it never got boring. It had a fairytale or historical romance kind of feel - living in castles, training in fields. But the story was also about the empire - its history, technology, and achievements. The more I think about it, I guess, I would say it was steampunk in space? I also wouldn't categorize it as an erotic romance. Sure, there was sex in the story, but it was never as explicit as in other alien romances I've read. It's definitely an adult romance but not an erotic romance. 

I liked how bright Lisa was. She had a lot of spunk. Her daughters were just charming. It was so much fun to read what these three brought to Grim's life. At times his confusion was hilarious, but always sweet. Lisa and Grim had quite a lot of misunderstandings but the author never let them drag. These main characters actually communicated and solved their problems. 
All the secondary characters had their own voices and I hope some of them are going to get their own stories. The villains had quite a decent plan and action scenes were great.
I really want to give it 5 stars, because the story actually deserves it, but I can't because of the countless typos. The editing was non-existent.

Boystown 6
Boystown 6: From the Ashes - Marshall Thornton

We were quiet a long time and then he said, “I love you.” 
I wondered if I’d misunderstood him. The discomfort of the idea must have shown on my face because he added, “I don’t mean I love you that way. Not like I love Ross. Not like you love Harker. I mean, I care about you, Nick. You’re my friend. With all the things that are happening in the world, shouldn’t it be okay? Just to say I love you?”
“Yes, it should be okay.”
And it was.

 

Some great new characters and relationships here. But damn the heart.
