This installment, so far, is my favorite of this new series. I saw the possible match-up back in book one and thought that they would make for an interesting book and I was so right. I think this book had everything and not too much of one thing. It was a perfect blend of most everything I look for in a good story. Interesting characters, nifty settings, intriguing plot, and the right amount of action. The romance was handled just right for me, the romances in the previous books were good, but they just seemed to happen too quickly.
Since things opened with Sage taking the women home I was dreading that things would end too fast, but I had a slip in faith for Ms. Lionsdrake which I shouldn't have and a lovely and hair raising twist was thrown into the mix instead adding a whole new avenue to explore. I was hoping that the worm gates would be explained more, though I couldn’t really see that there would be that much to be added to it yet, but introducing the nebula where men folk go crazy … and the cure being what it was … added a touch of humor to everything. The addition of the galaxy/sector of space highly unfriendly to humans added a whole new facet to space exploration and the surprises they find there … well I will just say I look forward to more books in this series to read how things pan out for the valiant crew.
I love how each couple had the promise of adding something to the crew as a whole, though I can’t really say much for Juanita since … I just don’t like her character much outside of her own book. Sage and Tala work so well together and I look forward to see how they keep up that trend and resolve whatever issues Ms. Lionsdrake throws at them.
I keep telling myself that I will wait to buy the next one, but so far I can’t help myself when I get that notice that there is a new one available to buy and I snap it up ASAP anyway.
