Nalea, the female half of the couple, is a strong feminine character who is completely comfortable in her action role as part of Sienna’s trinity (from Collision: Part 1 of the Colliding Worlds Trilogy). Roden, her mate, also holds a high military rank with his people and the role fits him well. There is a lot more to both characters than you see in the first book, where both characters debuted. Theirs is an interracial romantic love because Nalea is Sephian and Roden is Draeken, and yet they are both transplants because they are on earth. Maybe you can already see why the book was so enjoyable based on the challenges I mentioned. There are many more that I didn’t mention because I wouldn’t want to take away from your enjoyment of the story.
The highlights of Implosion are intrigue, interesting alien characteristics, interesting alien technology, and the romance between Nalea and Roden.
I loved their story, and went on the read the final book in the trilogy which featured a different couple. That review is coming in the future.
Do you need to read all the books for them to make sense? Perhaps not, but you will get a lot more out of the stories if you read them all, and in order.
When you’re in the mood for a Sci-Fi romance, give Implosion a try. I think you’ll like it.
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.
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 ›
