From the Author
The space opera genre was easy to write because some of my favorite sci-fi shows/movies (Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate) are done in that style.

The Jewels story, however, is more complex than it appears. The story hints at government conspiracies and genetic manipulation. It progresses from a yet-unwritten background of events that brought about the need for this mission. Multifaceted characters are well-developed with mysterious histories. I finished the book, wanting more.
The book is written for adults, but without the use of profanity. There is one tastefully done intimate scene. I find Kisha's approach refreshing.
I am looking forward to future books in the Jewels saga.
It is a fast read and complex in character treatment. This has all the possibilites of growing into an interesting series. Great first for new author.
First, I must say I expected a science-fiction story. Telepaths, aliens, warriors, space war - what else it could be? Actually it is more. It is a paranormal romance science-fiction book. Yes, there are telepathy involved, but in a higher level than just "talking with your mind". Yes, there are aliens in the book, though it is funny that cat-like aliens fight with dog-like ones. And yes, there are space ships and war, though that part could last longer for my taste.
Being a man, I'm not expert in romance (didn't I say this earlier?), but as far as I can tell, the romance worked just fine. At the end, I believed that the human woman fell in love with the cat prince, and their love and desire became fulfilled.
I liked that the telepathy was taken to a higher level. Those characters possessing this ability, not only communicated with each other, but could apply bigger mental forces. I found the mental shielding mate role interesting.
I missed some more sci-fi, though. But I know it's just me, being science-fiction fan.
There is one thing I should mention: there were too much telling instead of showing. I would have appreciated more showing during action, it would make the book more dynamic and enjoyable.
I give three stars. This is just because I'm fan of pure sci-fi. If you like romance and paranormal stories more, you may give it better rating.
Jewel, the MC in this story, is a valuable commodity for Earth's telepathic military. She has never known freedom, being brought up by the authorities and used as a weapon because of her abilities. Her only contacts in her life, have been her "Anchors," who help to ground her abilities and keep her in check and her doctor.
She finds a connection, which evolves into love, in an alien feline man, when her new mission involves being part of the greeting party to welcome the Gatoen Empire to Earth, in Dex, the prince of the visiting aliens.
Jewels is a mix of deception, a struggle for power between different factions and is entwined inside a love story as the telepaths band together to save Earth. This refreshingly, intriguing story is a fun read.
