Rachel was awakened at 5 a.m. by a loud crash. She assumed her brother’s dogs next door got out again and were chasing the livestock. But her daughter, Kelly, excitedly ran back inside and reported that an unconscious man was outside and the goats were eating his backpack and clothes! When Dyuvad opened his eyes, he recognized the rural farm setting as similar to what he had grown up with at home. He figured that was why they assigned this job to him so he could blend in.
As Dyuvad begins to meet the people in Rachel’s life, he sees why his protection is needed. Her ex-husband’s involvement with a gang has put them all in danger. The boss is coming after them in payment of Juan’s debt, but they have to get past Dyuvad first! Will he be able to fend off an entire gang of thugs? And what about the family Dyuvad has bonded with – will he leave them when his job is completed and they are finally safe? And again, why was Tiny so important to the Net telepaths?
I absolutely loved the chemistry between Rachel and Dyuvad as they teased each other and a beautiful relationship formed among each of his temporary family members. He knew he would miss them when he had to leave. I laughed at Rachel’s shy reactions and constant blushing as she witnessed some of Dyuvad’s playfulness. Before I had read even half of the book, I quickly purchased the rest of the series! This author is definitely great at what she does! High praises, and I unequivocally recommend this story! I voluntarily reviewed the book and my comments reflect my honest opinion.
I came into this in book 3, which is usually very frustrating but Ms. Varna doesn't rely on a reader's past knowledge. She loads us with just enough information to move the story along without referring back to previous books. As such it is a good stand alone.
I'm deeply, madly in love with Dyuvad. He is what all romantic heroes should be. Strong but gentle, dominant without being domineering, protective without being controlling. He is also the model of what chivalry should be – kindness because the person you are being polite to is human, not because they are a weak woman to be coddled.
Rachel is a wonderful, grounded heroine who falls for a man from the stars. Her unique narrator's voice, with its county charm and earthy humanity drives her story forward and gives it flavor, showing us without telling us who Rachel is, where she comes from. It makes her relate-able and it is obvious why a hero like Dyuvad falls for her.
Her two daughters, Kelly and Tiny, are sweet and adorable without crossing into that too sweet phase literary children often fall into. Kelly in particular, is very well drawn. She has all the problems of a little person trying to make her way in the world with a single mom, a sister and a herd of goats for a family.
Ms. Varna also hands us a real world villain with a real world drives, ones we see everyday on the news. No Dr. Evil, take the world over or eliminate a species plan. Merely make money off of other people's vices and bodies. We see just enough of him to hate him and not enough to gather any empathy for him
The world building is excellent, with hints of a Norse like culture that is easy to grasp. While Ms. Varna does provide us with an upfront dictionary, it really isn't necessary because she is so thorough in her creation. Even her vision of a telepathic Net is understandable and obviously an extension of the Internet we currently have. With the telepaths themselves and their goals and desires being hidden, we are left to wonder how they came to be. I even enjoyed the hint of an ancient civilization that began on Earth, spread across the Universe before disappearing from our known history. Giorgio Tsoulokos would love it as well. The hints Ms. Varna places, in both Dyuvad's name similarity to David and the near Norse mythology are just enough we can picture our ancient gods and heroes being Dyuvad's ancestors as well.
Ms. Varna's talent for the shifting third person POV, Rachel's country-homey voice and Dyuvad's stilted English that eventually loosens throughout the narrative should receive an award!
Unfortunately, Ms. Varna has added two more books to my ever growing TBR pile as I had to get the other two books in the series! A true must read, for the love story and the amazing world building and character creation!
5 out of 5
There is also a quick look into another book called, "A Warrior's Touch." It has to do with Yasmin and her encounter with an alien (Dyuvad's brother).
