When I had read Collision, the first book in the series, I was a little hesitant. I am not a fan of aliens that look like humans. However, Berinn won me over with her Sephians. And after playing around with graphics for her characters, I can really picture them now and see the difference. In Implosion, we aren't dealing with a bunch of Sephians though. Mainly just one, but it is about the other aliens, the Draken. Now, these aliens do look like humans, but with one big difference. They have wings. That is alien enough for me! Skin wings on a person, yup alien!
Great great job Berinn, this is a series I would totally recommend you pick up. It is a great romance series, but there is a great and inciting story with it as well!! Cannot wait for book #3!!

Implosion is a sci-fi romance built around the history of two enemy races, the Sephians and the Draeken, who are living here on Earth. The Draeken were drawn to Earth given their uncanny similarity to human DNA and have been living here for some time, without human alliance. A supernova destroyed their own planet, Draeka, centuries ago. Afterwards, they enslaved the planet of Sephia, and their people, and took it as their own. An uprising of the Sephian people after centuries of slavery caused the Draeken to flee the planet. A small number of Sephians chased them with orders to find and kill the last of their enemy before returning home. However, the Sephians have lost power to get back to their planet and have lived here under a very uneasy truce with humans.
Picking up about a year after the first in the trilogy left off, Implosion tells the story of Roden and Nalea. And what a story it is. Twists and turns, surprises and shockers. Theirs is a tale of lust, betrayal, and love in the most impossible of situations.
It's hard to go into much detail about their situation without giving away major spoilers for Book #1 Collision ...Read more ›
Implosion, the second book in Berinn Rae's Colliding Worlds trilogy, is even better than the first book! I was riveted from start to finish with the characters and the action.
Implosion is the story of Nalea's kidnapping by Roden that readers witnessed in Collision. Nalea's secret that is alluded to in Collision comes out in Implosion - and boy is it a doozy! Nalea remains the kick-ass Sephian I enjoyed in the first book but she becomes more well-rounded and gets a new depth as the lead character in Implosion. Her emotions and reactions were so human that I forgot that she was a Sephian several times!
I honestly wasn't sure what to think of Roden - even after Implosion ended. One minute, I'm cheering for him and wanting him to win thinking he's the "hero" and the next I'm wanting someone to kill him off because he seems like the "bad guy"! His actions, plotting, and maneuvering all made perfect sense but at the same time, left me seeing him very ambivalently. There's one scene - and I won't spoil it - where his rationalizations were much like those of a serial killer. And yet, you can see how Nalea could love him. That's the dichotomy that is Roden and I suspect not many authors would be able to do such a great job writing such a flawed character.
Much like in Collision, the action in Implosion is fast and furious throughout much of the book. It flows well and the vivid descriptions of battles and their aftermath are sometimes a little too vivid.
Several questions remain after Implosion that I'm hoping are answered in book three, Explosion. I'm looking forward to Jax's story and hope we get to see more of his friend Ace as well! If you enjoy paranormal romance, I definitely recommend Rae's Colliding World's trilogy but you need to read them in order or it might be confusing.
This is definitely a series to read in order. In the previous book Collision Nalea is captured by the Draeken. There are many reasons as to why her capture in beneficial to the Draeken. Nalea has an important position among the Sephian. Her capture is a definite strike against the Sephian. Roden is so much more than what he initially presents himself as. He is a schemer, but it is never how it seems on the surface. Nalea also had some secrets that while she may have wanted to keep hidden they will prove beneficial in the near future.
Roden and Nalea's romance didn't work for me. I know the tahren is what brought them together. I like the bond between the couples that the tahren creates. The connection of emotions and feelings, it's rather sexy. Roden and Nalea had started off on such bad terms I had a difficult feeling the other reasons for them to be together.
Up to this point the focus has been on the alien life forms that have relocated to Earth without permission. They have their struggles that they brought to Earth. The Noble War is over for the most part. One race was forced to find a new home, the victor decided to eradicate the other race. The relocation to Earth brings another player to the field. I am so curious where Berinn will take that possibility. There are so many places that could go.
