Book Description

A romantic science fiction trilogy by Rachel Aukes writing as Berinn Rae

Colliding Worlds Trilogy:
1. Collision
2. Implosion
3. Explosion

Sienna Wolfe knows it's going to be an interesting day when a man with golden skin and strange tattoos crashes in her backyard . . . and ends up tied to her bedposts. She likes her life just the way it is - simple, easy, relaxed. But when the gorgeous new alien in her life asks for her help in an inter-galactic war on a collision course with Earth, she can't say no . . . but she'll soon wish she had.

The U.S. military has figured out they have uninvited company, and they're not happy. Sienna knows it won't be easy protecting Earth from an alien invasion, but as a woman of action, she refuses to back down. Now it's up to Sienna to pull off the impossible: save the world and - hopefully - live a little happily ever after.

We thought aliens weren't real. We were wrong. Welcome to a trilogy of three extraordinary women who must find the strength to save the world -- that is, if their own people don't kill them first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharp and Imaginative Sci Fi Action & Romance January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Berinn Rae's short story in Tales from the SFR Brigade (excellent, by the way), and she was one of the author's I followed up with after finishing that collection. I started with Collision since I like SFR.

I liked this book a lot. The beginning really hooked me in and there was a lot of growth to the heroine. My only complaint was the lack of insight into Legian. By the end, I felt like I knew alpha characters Apolo and Jax better. There is a three month leap in time early in the book, and this would have been the best time to discover personality quirks about Legian. I felt cheated as this was when Legian and Sienna discovered each other. Although it is written in third person, we never really get into Legian's head like we do Sienna's.

That nitpick aside, I felt the sequence action in this book was terrific. There was a lot of physical confrontation in terms of fight scenes among the humans and aliens, and I was able to follow the action very well in my head. Sometimes romance authors really lose their pacing in these scenes, but not Rae! She is very strong in this aspect, and each scene is built very well and not at all repetitive. There is a lot of imagination when it comes to the weapons.

The sci fi elements were interesting, including the physical differences with the Sephian and Draeken races. She also incorporated differences in other physical ways related to light/dark, food, healing, etc. I thought it was pretty original.

I also liked the irreverence of the characters. Sienna and Ben were probably the funniest. Rae had a lot of great quips, quoted by another reviewer for this book. The humor sparkled throughout, and it was nice that Sienna didn't curb that personality quirk for anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable SciFi Adventure August 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As soon as I met heroine, Sienna Wolfe, witnessed her save an alien from a crash landing, and drop him on his head, I knew I'd like this woman. She was funny and genuine, with a tough as nails attitude that really has you rooting for her. And the alien she saves? His name is Legian, a Sephian and also her tahren or true mate. The chemistry between them is instant, and while I would have loved to see more of how their relationship developed, you are quickly whisked away in a battle to save the planet from the Draeken--a race that once enslaved the Sephian and moved their sights to Earth after being defeated in a war on Sephia. Now the Draeken are on Earth and Sienna must learn to lead the Sephian or face enslavement.

Overall, Collision was a quick, great read with likeable characters and an enjoyable sci/fi world you can really immerse yourself into. Not to mention that just when I thought I had everything figured out in the end, Berinn threw in some great twists.

There are many things I enjoyed about this novel. Most of all is the heroine the author has created. Even though she isn't the strongest physically, she's brave and totally kickass. She's also very impetuous which turns the human and alien races militant way of life upside down. She saves the hero's ass, she plays an integral role in blending the societies, and the feminist in me loved the fact that the Sephian race is a matriarchal society. Women ruled the roost so to speak and I rather enjoyed this refreshing story world the author created.

Sci-fi isn't normally my genre to read however since its paranormal romance, I jumped at the chance when approached by the author. I'm so glad I did. I believe it has t led me to an epiphany. I'm so over bossy Alpha males! The "I'm the all powerful, you are mine, you will do what I say because I make all the decisions" male that seems to be all too common in our romance novels these days. Thanks Ms. Rae for the refreshing escape! Time for the chicks to rule.

About the Story
________________________________________
Collision is the story of alien beings (Sephians) that secretly came to planet earth hunting their enemy alien race (Draeken). The Sephians believed that the Draeken were here with plans to enslave humans as they did the Sephians years ago. The Sephians stepped in partly because they did not want humans to be enslaved like they were but mainly because they just hated the Draeken and they wanted to kill as many as they can.

Our heroine, Siena, wasn't too shocked at the discovery of other races on our planet since she grew up with parents that researched alien societies. She also worked for the military's elite force that studied paranormal life forms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-fi, urban fantasy and lots of passionate heat! September 9, 2012
By Terri
Format:Kindle Edition
Sienna, a kickass heroine.

Legian, a sexy alien.

Together, they offer the reader everlasting love, some hot hanky panky, amped up sci-fi and a happily ever after.

Sienna's life becomes complicated when she saves Legian from a crash landing and discovers he's an alien. Then her life rockets into the unknown when she becomes Legion's tahren (his lifelong mate) and is thrown into an interstellar battle that involves not only the fate of their relationship but the fate of Earth.

Berinn Rae offers entertaining storytelling that a reader can sink their teeth into. With great attention to detail and a lot of world building, her characters feel real. She's not afraid to push them to their limits to see what they're made of, and it's clear with Sienna and Legian that their happily ever after won't come easily. Then again, that's what makes it sweet. While Sienna and Legion must deal with their newfound bond, Sienna also must learn the ways of a new culture that she's been drawn into. And together they have to shut down a race that's determined to enslave, defeat and kill. It's a battle that comes with a cost, and it's one that Sienna faces head on and willingly. In the end, she shows us the true leader she is.

If you enjoy sci-fi/urban fantasy with a side order of passion and romance, and a little JR Ward thrown in, this book is for you. Definitely recommended -- and curious to see what Rae has up her sleeve for the second in the trilogy!
