As usual with Katalina Leon, once you start a book you won’t stop until the very last page. Once again she delivers a beautifully written story, with a mix of elements of action and romance, all packed into an amazing scifi romance. It’s the story of two people on different missions who must work together in a forsaken realm, fighting for their lives with danger lurking at every corner.
Gemmina Nayar is a level-seven bounty hunter from New Mumbai, one of the best in her field. The reputation she’s earned brings her an invitation on a private and isolated planetoid to track dawn a dangerous criminal and escort him to Penal Colony X57 for punishment. Arriving there, she finds Syan, an off-limit alien race Krionian, cuffed, sedated and accused of horrible crimes. Even if the stories she was told about Syan’s crimes should have made her hate him, Gemmina cannot help being drawn to him. Things don’t go any easier because Syan claims her as his mate with one bite that forces a bond between them. When her ship goes down and they end up in the harsh tropical jungle of the planetoid, they must work together in order to survive. With the bond working its magic, they are able to read each other’s mind and she finds out he is not the bad guy, but quite the opposite. Each gesture, each action he takes is to protect her and she gradually falls in love with him, especially after he admits that it was a mistake to force a mating. He even tries to be the gentleman and denies them both the pleasure of the forced bond, wanting her to love him willingly.Read more ›
This book does all these things and more! Our main character gets bitten by a stunning alien in the first fifty or so pages of the book (after a villain more or less proves he is a villain beyond anyone's shadow of a doubt). For those wondering about how alien physiology is compatible with a human... I have no idea... Neither does the author, if I had to hazard a guess.
Suddenly, the main heroine is telepathic and the hero in question is clearly a god from Olympus itself, escaped its tall heights so he can ravage our strong woman. And also claim her as his mate. Because.... because that's how his people do it (forget consent or even the first date... or really any kind of a mating ritual at all). Followed by adventure and love and... love.
Anyway, read this book at your own risk.
Ah so we have Agent Gemmina Nayar, residing in New Mumbai, a “Retrieval Specialist” just a fancy name for a Bounty Hunter. But not just any Bounty Hunter she is a level seven and the best in her league. She is a sassy, tenacious kick ass female with enhancements. Takes her job seriously and always maintains a professional demeanor. She isn’t cruel to the prisoners but she isn’t easy on them either. Orphaned at a young age, got into a bad group, and then turned her life around when she was asked to assist in apprehending or finding a perp. This is what made her decide to become a Bounty Hunter.
When Gemmina Nayar received an invitation to Neveen Corp Planetoid to retrieve/capture a trespasser she jumped on the chance. Even though she was a little skeptical. She thought this would be a great work/vacation. She could run and hunt through the jungles and let her inner tigress out. BUT when she arrived her running through the jungles was crushed. Apparently the perp had been apprehended and was being contained all Gemmina needed to do was deliver the perp to X57 Penal Colony where he will undergo cryptoerasing. When Gemmina realized who the prisoner was she was shocked. You see the prisoner was Kironian and the entire Kironian sector are under political sequester. So now we meet Syan. Immediately when he’s brought out Gemmina is drawn to him and can’t take her eyes off of him. It’s almost like he’s trying to communicate with her. Oh yes he was.
As the story continues and Gemmina has Syan restrained in her ship it’s here he mind speaks with her. Talk about a freak out for Gemmina.Read more ›
I liked the premise, the storyline, and the author's smooth writing style, the natural dialogue. The author has an excellent way of showing the reader all of the things that are going on so the reader really feels everything that is happening with the characters every moment. In addition, the editing was good, too!
Really, the only thing I didn't like about this story was how simple the storyline was. There was one main thing happening, with some super minor details and complications. The complexity of the storyline felt right for a 7 year old, but not older. However, there is some sex involved, and the concepts of the story might be pushing a 7 year old's understanding level.
This author has the writing skills to become great once she figures out how to create a more complicated plot/subplot mix.
