Book Description

Cancer is killing Courtney Shepard; she’s given up, but when she is abducted in the night by a tall dark stranger her life is given an unfamiliar second chance. Courtney wakes to find her health restored yet her delight is squashed when she learns she’s aboard an alien aircraft headed for the planet Gavia; another Earth like world.
Courtney’s abduction isn’t the only astonishing news she must absorb; Courtney must marry Antioch, not only the stranger who stole her from her bed but the successor to Gavia’s dark ruler. Courtney goes on to tackle more odds as her new life is thrown into an alien frenzy. She must make herself worthy to Gavia’s tyrant ruler, comprehend her new and strange love for Antioch, and persist through Gavia’s secret past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention Catcher November 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am not usually interested in Science Fiction but a co worker was talking about this book
she read and it sounded very interesting although I still wasn't ready to order it. She
convinced me it was a must read. I was completely captivated from chapter 1 till the end.
I had such a hard time putting the book down and had it read within 2 days. It is a mixture
of science fiction, romance and a bit of history. The story line just flowed through the
intire book. The way the Author described the characters and surroundings made me feel as
though I could close my eyes and see it. I will definately be recommending this book to
others. I will be following the Author for future release's and hope her plan for the
end of the book was to have a 2nd book to follow. The end left me wanting to continue
the journey. 'A MUST READ'

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will admit, I loved the first half of the book....then the story line just fizzled.

Also, I didn't know this was a going to be a serial novel. The reader was left dangling at the end. Frankly, I wasn't left with enough interest to be tempted to read the follow up novel.

Sorry, but can't recommend this book. As well, the price was too high for such a short novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUT OF THIS WORLD!! September 26, 2013
I am usually not a huge sci-fi fan but I found this book to be extremely captivating and addictive. From the first chapter to the last I was unable to put it down and finished it within two days! The author uses wonderful sensory details and really makes you feel like you are in the book. If you close your eyes you can actually see, hear, smell, and feel what is being described. Every emotion in the text is felt within the reader, such a vast variety of feelings all wrapped up in a wonderful story. I completely fell in love with the story of Courtney and Antioch. You truly never knew what was going to be waiting for you when you turned the page!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sci-fi, romance, adventure, and suspense. Like I said I was never a huge sci-fi fan before but I am definitely hooked now. The story line continued to build fluidly throughout the book and left no room for the material to get boring. I will anxiously be awaiting the sequel to Beyond Gavia, I CAN'T wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read.. May 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Really enjoyed this book. Not my usual type of read, however on a long trip my sister had a copy so I went ahead and read it. I found the characters to be well thought out and rich with texture. The story though a little slow at times would pick up tremendously at key points and times in the book. I would recommend this book to the avid reader who understands the deep building of characters. I would even read the next book if there ever was one, and would love to pick the authors brain a little over the underlying meanings in the book. Well done and look forward to future progressive novels from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprise! April 1, 2013
This generally is not my preferred genre, but I picked up the book and after the first few pages I had to know what was going to happen next. The plot moved quickly with many twists and turns, it really kept me on my toes. There were a few mechanical issues, but being a first book for this author I was truly spellbound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interestingly Amazing!!! October 18, 2012
Pegging myself as a very picky reader, I would have to say that this book was more than worth my time! It was a very good mix of sci fi, romance, and even a little ancient history that made you wonder. I will be waiting for the second book in this series!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars creative imagination February 19, 2013
This charming novel took me by suprise. The character development was rich with a strong lead heroine. In the first few pages the plot begins its first twist and continues to coil through space and time to another world of sparkling beauty, but on Gavia that beauty is only skin deep. If you enjoy strong female characters in a scifi setting then this book is a must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay
The story is an enjoyable read. The only downfall for me was at times it was vague, and predictable in spots.

held my attention. Read more
