This book was really good. I thought it was going to be one of those inane little books like a fluff pieces but no. It had some real depth. I would recommend it for romance to science fiction.

Sola de la Vega is on a mission to save the galaxy, and nothing will sway her. Not even the pleas of her beloved husband, Captain Javan Rhodes, to keep herself and their unborn child safe. Fitted with a series of technological "enhancements" entwined with her central nervous system, Sola is not fully human. Her father is the undisputed leader of Earth, and Sola is driven to put an end to his genocidal rule - before he can follow through with his plans to consolidate power over the universe into the hands of the aristocracy. Despite Javan's fears for her safety, Sola's quest has become an obsession she cannot control.

The story was good overall was passable but the narrator could put a little more emotion in her delivery. She has a great voice but I think the only thing she needs is a little practice reading into a recorder and play it back. She is going to be a great narrator. I would say that she still held my attention. I say, you go girl.

This is the third book in a series and I just love it. As a sci fi fan for 60 years and I don’t know how I missed this little gem. What probably seemed hard core when it was first published I can see where a lot of things they were saying are now almost facts. Funny isn’t it. A lot of these writers were almost prophetic. You rock. I know the author iso probably gone but he will live on for us with his writt.

Twelve-year-old Zero is traveling with 20,000 people for 105 years to colonize a new planet. Everyone is in stasis, so they'll be safe during the trip, but when Zero's pod malfunctions it wakes him early, like 105 years early. At first he's excited to be the only one awake - he has the entire ship to himself, so he can go anywhere and see and do and eat anything he wants - but when a family of space pirates show up, trying to hijack the ship and kidnap the colonizers, Zero has to think fast and find a way to stop them all on his own.

I thought that this book would be less than perfect but I wrong. The book is excellent. I am not usually impressed by books with multiple characters but this one is not only great but the other aspects are also impressive. I am going to offer it to others as well.

I found Book 1 this time fIrst. And so I have run out of my Four credits first. Then I did something that I never do.....I had a five dollar credit and I actually bought a book with my actual money. I was desperate to have the next book in the series. I am going to look at my library and see if I have a book or two two that I can honestly.trade in to get a couple more of the series to read. Then if I don’t have any more to trade in I will start buying the things all over again. Great job.girl.

After Maya is turned into a vampire against her will, vampire and Scanguards bodyguard Gabriel is charged with protecting her and finding her attacker. Gabriel has never guarded a body as perfect as Maya's. Moreover, Maya's enticing blend of vulnerability and strength is difficult to resist. Yet resist he must. Even as the sexual tension between them rises and the rogue vampire closes in on them, Gabriel refuses to give in to his desire. Despite the intimacies they share, Gabriel fears that if he ever reveals himself fully to her, Maya will react like other women have, running from him, and calling him a monster, a freak, a creature not worth her love.

Well, this is the 3rd book in this series and they get better with each new book. I read the Vampires of America and thought there couldn’t possibly be any vampire series as captivating that. I was wrong. This series, although different, is dynamically equally captivating. I say anyone who likes vampire stories has a fairly good chance of getting a kick out of this series too. Kudos
