Rafe thought once he found all the artifacts, he'd finally understand, and the prophecy would set him free. Instead, he finds himself leading what remains of the Rhomanii clans into the far reaches of the unknown, looking for...he doesn't know what. But the pirate in him sure hopes it involves treasure. So much is riding on this gamble he's taking, and the voices in his head aren't helping matters. Compounding the problem? Not everybody wants him to succeed.

I have so many feelings on this last (?) installment in this series. I have to admit that it did not end exactly how I had hoped it would, and I am both creeped out and fascinated by how it did. There is also an obvious opening left for future books, maybe. I sort of hope The author does use this opening as I am already feeling withdrawal!
This one was another wild ride with so much action and humor, I was kept at full attention the entire time.

The Rhomanii are looking for the man foretold in the prophecy, a leader that will unite the clans and lead them home. Some addled seers decided that man is Rafe. That caused a bit of an issue, mostly because there is a second foretelling, one calling him the destroyer. Cooler name, but it comes with attempts to kill him, mostly by his uncle, the archduke for the enclave. But what's a little blood and murder between family members?

This series just keeps getting better and better. There is still the humor and sexiness of the first story in this series but the storyline and the characters have grown and gotten more complex. The relationships amongst the characters have gotten deeper and more mature. I am really enjoying this series and am bummed only to have one more to go!

This is actually a second “reading” for me, in preparation for the rest of the series. I had forgotten how funny it was. I do have to say, I think my favorite character is the sarcastic Ship’s AI. The main characters were pretty good too:-) Eve Langlais never disappoints.

The happiest day of Payton Lambert's life was the day she graduated high school and watched Bald Knob, Kentucky, get smaller and smaller in her rearview mirror. She wanted more for her life than a tiny town where everyone knows your business and you can't find a decent cup of coffee for at least 40 miles. Twelve years later an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night has her packing up her life in Chicago and racing back home to the one person she ever regretted leaving behind.

Where has Tara Sivec been all my life? This story was hysterical with so many likable characters. I want to be best friends with Payton, Betty and Emma Jo, and live in Bald knob. nearly every minute of this story was either funny or swoon worthy. Amy McFadden did an amazing job being this cast of characters to life.

Wiping out humanity is his number one objective - until he meets her. Aramus has no patience or sympathy for the excuses humanity uses to hunt cyborgs down and eradicate them. He's put up with too much at their hands to ever forgive and forget. But all that changes when he rescues a fragile human doctor who refuses to see him as a machine. She teaches him that perhaps not all emotions are a weakness and that love can make even a cynical cyborg like him stronger. And for those who'd mock his change of view or threaten his female? Go ahead. His knuckles could use some exercise.

I have loved this entire series but Aramus is officially my favorite. Seeing the Uber grumpy Cyborg react to burgeoning feelings for a human *gasp* was hysterical. The way he showed his feelings was sweet, if a bit psychotic. The storyline was fun and interesting without any long and boring bits. The narrator was perfectly suited to the character.
My favorite thing about Langlais’s books is they are all non traditional, quirky and funny. They also all leave me wanting the next installment, and this one is no different! I NEED Seth’s book in Audio form!

When cyborg intelligence meets sensual robotics, circuit boards sizzle. Einstein was probably the only cyborg in existence with no interest in the opposite sex, until he discovered B785. With her sensual nature and quirky sense of humor, she draws this cybernetic geek out of his scientific shell and teaches him the one thing he's never understood - passion.

In this third installment to the Cyborg series, Langlais managed to come up with another couple that was funny, sweet and unique. While the story line has been consistent she has captured different personalities with each couple, keeping the series from getting stale. Einstein was too funny as was his reactions to developing feelings. As with the previous books, I have really enjoyed the interaction between the cyborg men, specifically Seth and Aramus and cannot wait for there stories. Hopefully Seth’s book will be making it into Audio?

F814 exists to serve the humans until they decide to terminate her. An instinct for survival makes her fight, but when she achieves freedom, she discovers she cannot throw off the chains of habit. Everything changes when another flesh-covered droid arrives, a cyborg he calls himself, who teaches her she is more than a machine. Solus hates humanity, and even though he was born as a flawed human, he strives to eradicate all traces of it from his persona - until he meets F814.

I am quickly coming to appreciate this funny, quirky series. I love that they have all the fun of a sci-fi adventure without getting bogged down in boring details or by taking itself too seriously.
As for the characters in this addition, Solus was was so much fun considering his dour demeanor in the previous book and Fiona was just the right blend of confused cyborg and feisty female. I can’t wait for all the next ones, especially Aramus!

Lots of non-angsty fun. This book had lots of fun, action and romance without ever getting heavy or dull. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the sci-fi aspect, being a true sci-fi fan at heart. I was worried that the romance would turn it cheesy but I did not feel that way at all. I am looking forward to the next books in the series as the side characters in this episode were very entertaining and promise a lot more fun.

Roxanne knows where she'd like to shove Cupid's arrow. Tired of cheating men and false promises of love, Roxanne launches a campaign against Cupid's Dating Service. But it's hard to smear a company when you've got the hots for the owner. Maverick Eros is more than the CEO of CDS, he's Cupid himself. However, forget the media images of a chubby diapered cherub because the god of love is actually six feet plus of yummy, muscled male. When they meet, sparks fly - the lusty kind - but they both know from experience, love hurts. In the end though, they'll learn that love will have its way, with or without the aid of Cupid's arrow.

An assignment to babysit a rich dude isn't Kacy's idea of a fun assignment. Especially since he and his bodyguard are just like all the other boys she knows, thinking she's too tiny to pack a punch. I'll show him. She'll show him that sexy things come in small packages and he won't be able to stop himself from falling for the pint-sized protector. Problem is, who'll protect his heart?

This was another great listen. No long drawn out internal monologues here, just a humorous pairing and a fun ride. I listen to audiobooks while I’m working so I appreciate when the story moves along without any extra “filler.” This one was also a bit of a who-done-it, which I really liked, it was different enough from the first in the series to not feel like a rehash on the same story.
