Review


"Pippa Jay's simple, clean, and yet descriptive style of narrative brings to life the tortured soul that is Keir, and the coltish, brave woman that is Quin. A character driven book set in a world drenched with space opera imagination. Brilliant!"

TK Toppin, author of the To Catch A Marlin series
 
"Well done sci-fi fantasy with a cast of compellingly constructed characters, a boldly unique story and a romance that will have you turning pages long into the night. And the ending... OH! The ending!"
CE Kilgore, TracingTheStars.com cekilgore.com
 
"Keir is my favorite kind of hero: wounded, a fighter, and willing to sacrifice anything for his girl."
Rachel Leigh Smith
author of My Name Is A'yen
 

About the Author

After spending twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay is now a stay-at-home mum who writes scifi and the supernatural. Somewhere along the way a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moment playing guitar very badly, punishing herself with freestyle street dance, and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in the historical town of Colchester in the UK with her husband of 22 years and three little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head. Pippa Jay is a dedicated member of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade and Broad Universe, blogging at Spacefreighters Lounge, Adventures in Scifi, and Romancing the Genres. Her works include YA and adult stories crossing a multitude of subgenres from scifi to the paranormal, often with romance, and she’s one of eight authors included in a science fiction romance anthology—Tales from the SFR Brigade. She’s also a double SFR Galaxy Award winner, been a finalist in the Heart of Denver RWA Aspen Gold Contest (3rd place), the GCC RWA Silken Sands Star Awards (2nd place), and an EPIC eBook awards finalist.

I purchased this book yesterday morning after only reading a few pages of the sample chapters, so enthralled and drawn in was I by the writing, the characters, and the story. I felt such relief at finding what I thought was going to be an amazing book. It's been so long since I stumbled across something written by a skilled author. But now, with the book finished, I have realized it was a waste of my time and my $5. So here are the reasons why I disliked it.

1) NOTHING in this book is ever explained. Ever. For instance, A) Quinn's past was never explained adequately enough for me to have figured out exactly what in the heck actually happened. B) Her big mission to find the person who destroyed her world was not adequately explained either and then the mission just....vanished as the book went on - like it was only a prop in the first place. C) Numerous scenes happened that appeared in the moment to be important, and then later, time after time, I discovered they were absolutely and utterly pointless. D) Questions in this book are constantly being raised, but again, never answered. There are never answers, never clarity, there is just more questions that are left as unanswered as the rest of them. The overall effect is maddening.

2) I am not entirely certain there was one, even ONE emotion in this whole book that was shown and not told. God, it was so bad. It didn't bother me as much at first because I kept thinking that at some point it would change. Well, it didn't, and it grated on my nerves for the entire last half of the book.

3) And finally for the biggest reason I didn't like this book, there was ultimately no underlying theme for me to grab onto. There was no goal the characters seemed to be working toward. There was no endgame. There was nothing.

I had this book sitting on my TBR list for way too long (you can blame 'Game of Thrones' - who writes 1000 page novels! Goodness!). Once I got around to reading it I realized quickly that I should have gotten to this book WAY earlier. I was definitely missing out on something special. Once I started I couldn't put it down. I think I finished it in four quick stints - okay, five, tops.

Great elements of mystery and adventure abound, right from the start. And love, too. I don't think I'm giving anything away by saying that. Hey, this is SFR, right! Who is Keir? What's his story? And who is this mystery woman and why does she seem to care for him? These are the questions asked at the beginning and propel the story forward.

Ms. Jay does a terrific job of following up and delivering on those questions too, always feeding just enough information to keep the pages turning as the story of these two individuals unfolds. The world of Keir is vivid and believable, with just the right amount of description and colouring - never overdone or expository.

I really dug this book, and (if your fans of science-fiction/adventure/romance definitely urge you to give it a try.

This is a story of tortured souls, love and redemption. On a strange world Quin, a human traveller who moves among the stars on a quest for a lost friend, discovers Keir, an outcast in his society. All Keir wants to do is die, believing himself condemned and cursed, while Quin soon wishes to save him, having seen a glimpse of who he really is.

From this starting point follows an adventure that will warm science fiction and romance readers alike. As one hops between planets with this delightful pair, Pippa Jay sketches the different worlds with her pen, bringing them vividly to life. She does no less with each character, drawing one into their minds with ease.

I really enjoyed this book, Pippa Jay's debut novel, and as there are several unanswered questions, I hope there will be more to come from this author.

I rarely re-read books. It is not that many of my favorite books don’t deserve to be read. They absolutely do! But there are so many good books to get to before I die, I don’t have time to re-read. There are exceptions. One exception is that a favorite book is being re-issued after being re-edited.

Such is the story with Keir. I read Keir two years ago in the original edition that was release in 2012. In the time since then, the company that published Keir closed and the the rights re-verted back to the author, Pippa Jay. After re-editing Ms. Jay re-released the book this year. Then I re-read Keir so I could re-review.

Synopsis: Quin is a smart, confident woman who has been traveling to distant worlds and other times through gateways opened with her special abilities. She has suffered much loss but has survived 300 years of life. Keir is a young man who has been persecuted all his life because was born with blue skin. When Quin and Keir meet, both of their lives are changed forever. The find they share a twisted heritage that makes them more similar than different and ultimately binds them together in a way that will both help and hinder their relationship. Together Quin and Keir face persecution, betrayal, and capture. All the while, they become closer and stand together to face their foes – to the death if necessary.

There are two consecutive story lines in Keir. The first part is about the rescue of Keir from the terrible medieval world he had the misfortune to be born on. The second part begins when a figure from Quin’s past searches her out and his reason is not because he wants to give her a hug! It was a pleasant bonus to get two stories in one.
