Star trek and star wars fan like myself would love this space adventure with lots of action and just little bit of romance Which I don t mind at all I am here for the space adventure.We have another heroine here, Fiona And we have another thinking system For me, they are the best feature in these books Plus likeable and strong heroines The ending felt really rushed And I have to be honest, though Sazo and Rose are still my favorite. I put off reading Dark Horse Class 5 Series Book 1 for months because a space romance just did not sound interesting even though I have loved EVERYTHING this author has written that I have read so after I corrected that bit of stupidity I grabbed this one pretty much immediately and it took a few chapters to get going than Dark Horse did but once the plot was in full swing it was every bit as captivating and exceptional as Dark Horse Class 5 Series Book 1 was in almost every way.While I was sure I knew exactly where the plot was going a slightly modified version of Dark Horse I was once again reminded why I write reviews and not novels It did NOT go where I was sure it was going and was an exceptionally original ending to this installment into the Class 5 Series.One thing this book does that the other book did not do was we know who the heroine of the next book will most likely be but we don t really know much than her name and I can t wait to get the enxt book and see where this amazing and original series is going.Well played once Michelle Diener, well played I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review I love the first book, Dark Horse, and I love this one too This one is action oriented the romance is just a hit until well into the story, but I appreciated that because the action was so very interesting The Class 5 thinking systems are so cute Here we meet Eazi and while he s not such a strong presence as Sazi was, he s still very much endearing and connected with Fee.I love the moltitude of beings and the convoluted politics between each one of the races But what I love the most is the was Ms Diener makes her heroines Just wonderful and so full of life Just like Fee saysthey see the glass half fullIt s so refreshing that the heroine doesn t dubt herself constantly neither her action nor her feelings toward the hero The action is intriguing and convoluted nothing is what it seems, but as the story pregresses, many things become clear and I loved how Fee could adjust to about everything and act in a logical and sensible way I hope Ms Diener will continue with this series as I m looking forward to meeting the others Clas 5 4 5 4 stars A I really enjoyed this light sci fi romance There were good guys, bad guys, Intelligent thinking systems, space ships and lots of adventure I liked this book enough to go right out and buy the next two in the series I wanted to check this author out and found I like her style I would rate all three books the same. An ARC was given in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the writer and the publisher for the opportunity to read this3.75 rounded down to 3 There was no sex in this book I repeat, there was no sex Hell, Fiona and Hal didn t even get to second base And oh, the sexual tension between them only surfaced at around the 50% marker before that, everything was all space opera drama What the hell If I was a lesser nerd, I would have hated this But the fact is, I m not I m probably one of the biggest sci fi fanatics you ll ever meet, and this just satisfied me on a nerdgasmic level So much so that the fact that the romance left me hanging didn t bother me as much Maybe it was the Star Wars and Star Trek feels that I got when I read about the different alien species, the intergalactic politics of the United Council, and basically everything about the universe that was set up here Maybe it was because Hal was so adorable when he finally realised his feelings for Fiona Maybe it was because Fiona was able to remain strong, despite all the shit she went through she was abducted, forced into slave labour, and then got beaten up by alien pirates But yes, I enjoyed this very much.That being said, I want to point out that while I really liked this book, I m reluctant to recommend it to the general public I feel like this is something only a hard core sci fi fan would like The focus is really on the space opera drama, and less on the romance In fact, the first 50% was just about the rising tension between the Grihs and the Tecrans, and about finding out what the Tecrans were up to So if you re looking for something similar to Ruby Dixon s Ice Planet Barbarians series, you re in the wrong place. Fiona Russell has been snatched from Earth, imprisoned and used as slave labor, but nothing about her abduction makes sense When she s rescued by the Grih, she realizes there s a much bigger game in play than she could ever have imagined, and she s right in the middle of it.Battleship captain Hal Vakeri is chasing down pirates when he stumbles across a woman abducted from Earth She s the second one the Grih have found in two months, and her presence is potentially explosive in the Grih s ongoing negotiations with their enemies, the Tecran The Tecran and the Grih are on the cusp of war, and Fiona might just tip the balance 3.5 stars It took me a while to get back to this series but I m glad I did I thought the romance aspect of this book was better than the first one it didn t feel quite so insta love but the AI aspect of it was not as interesting Nothing can top Sazo, but I did like Fiona a little than I liked Rose in the previous book I did feel like this book was set up too much like the last book was and it looks like the same will be the case for the third book in the trilogy That s a little too repetitive in my opinion I m still interested in continuing on though, because this series is fun even with it s flaws One thing I am hoping for though, is that the protagonist in the next book has a terrible singing voice and no one wants to hear her sing Let me explain the Grih race in the books hold music as a near sacred thing, and are completely enthralled when they hear someone sing or play music, because apparently they can t sing, or something I really can t remember the reasons Anyway, both Rose in book one, and Fiona in this book end up singing for them when they find out how it affects them This resulted in some humorous scenes in the book, but it also got a little cheesy at times Mainly I just want something different in the next book.Review also posted at Writings of a Reader
