Splinterpoint by Regina St. Claire
Splinterpoint - Regina St. Claire

This book is C-wA_A-a-Z-YY!

Feels like Times Square, honestly :D 

 

~~~

The sheer amount of cultural references is mind-boggling.
Praetor Judy made it into this book :)

 

 

 

And I kept comparing Kol'daar to Cass (no actual mention of Supernatural, darn it!) - a bad-ass when he wants to be, but cute and adorable and kind and sometimes clueless. 

 

 

Metaaaaaahlll!!!



Yes, Ozzy made it, too! And the Dove! 



And, damn, talking about Mr. Crowley on that album!



Anyway, the story was heading for full 11 stars when things started going south around the last 20%, or after the Final Battle to be precise. Maybe during it's final half-hour, too. That's when the author quit crazy and spontaneous, turned on a drone and started explaining and over-explaining and then ex-plai-ning-to-death and then some just to drive the final nail in. 

After the report filing at the gingerbread castle I skimmed through the rest of the pages. The story got sappy and it dragged out for more than it had to. 

In the end I was left feeling a bit unbalanced. The badassery turned to sap, the unpredictable and unexplained turned into dissecting everything under a microscope. I really didn't care about the Song or Music Magic or how Nunzio's disability worked.

 

 

ALSO - The Burrito Incident. Someone specifically targeted Nunzio. Why? Never explained.

So, I am cutting 6.5 stars off for all the un- and over-explained instances and giving this book 4.5 stars.

 

Recommended :D

Review: When Aliens Weep (Book 7)
When Aliens Weep: An Alien Apocalyptic Saga (Species Intervention #6609 Book 7) - J.K. Accinni

I have fallen in love with this author's work since the very beginning when we were introduced to this world. In book 7 we are not disappointed with the way the book goes. Not everyone will survive the ending of the Earth but those that do get to see inside the Womb and meet even more minions, elders and navigators (who visit different planets and lets the Womb know about them). I have to say I found navigator IV also renamed by Bonnie as Ivy to be just sweet and funny. The way she connected to Bonnie was amazing. We get to see how certain characters deal with not having their loves one with them and what happens to other characters after the Womb finds them. It seems that some people can not let go of the human feeling of jealousy and revenge and we learn of the consequence of that all suffer because of one person.   

Once I started reading it was so hard to put down and I honestly can say I want more of these characters. I want to know what happens after everything is said and done so I vote for the author to write more (if the characters let her.)

There is a creature that ends up causes destruction and let me tell you I LOVED the description the author gave us of this creature. I found it to be horrifying in my mind and thought it went perfect with everything that was going down. 

I want to say so much in this review but I feel as though I will be giving away a lot. Start with book one and see if you enjoy the story, characters, the world that this author has created.

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

Off-World by Jonah Bergan
Off-World - Jonah Bergan

There is no actual romance in this book, just m/m sex, seeing how a few of the characters are gay.
The first chapter, the prologue, is a true sci-fi/pirates/space battle.
The rest is a cross country trip from point A to point D, with a couple of detours via B and C and some backtracking. Taine, a devil-looking alien, is travelling with an apprentice and a slave. They have sex along the way, encounter mean locals, lose stuff and unravel an evil plot. The world is populated by humans and the planet itself is very Earth-like.
All in all it wasn't exactly bad, in parts it was good, but I had hard time with "divine providence". The book would have been better without it, even with Taine failing to keep track of his property.
