Note: This novella contains triggering subjects: rape, murder, being drugged and helpless

Tyree is from a race that can kill people with sex. Said race makes clone creches, and Tyree is asked to stand in for another member of her creche to complete a diplomatic agreement. Mirsee did not have Tyree's assassin abilities and lived as a dignitary, marrying the human diplomat Zander D'joren. Tyree now must masquerade as Mirsee until the treaty is concluded. She develops romantic feelings for Zander, which add complications to her mission.

Tyree is quite complex. She has ideas about what is appropriate for her and others and starts the story something of a prideful bigot. Her skills have kept her in good standing, but she's asocial and rude. Her emotions are turbulent and brutal, her attempts to handle them clumsy because Su aren't supposed to have emotions and feeling is new to her. The nightmare scene is troubling to her as it was to me. She may be a trained assassin, but her vulnerability is touching. She doesn't make a very good guard, but she's not trained as one. Tyree grows to understand Zander and some other humans, and it broke my heart (in a good way) to watch her grow, hurt, and be hurt. I want to know how she will deal with the world after the story's end, because her life changes so drastically.

Pippa Jay uses evocative language. It's a cut above the usual and immersed me in the setting. Nature, smells, tactile impressions are sprinkled in so the reader feels along with Tyree, almost in her body. I felt 'there' with everyone. The environments and secondary characters are detailed and compelling in their mysteries. This is an important factor to me. I didn't cry, but I felt longing, horror, fear, and tenderness during the course of the story.

Tyree has special talents of empathy and is trained to kill. She is put into an unfamiliar and distressing situation when she is sent to guard the diplomat Zander. Worse, Zander's murdered love looked like an identical twin of Tyree. Tyree is further confused by her attraction to Zander, which is forbidden by her kind. The tension between the two is increased by assassination attempts. The story is full of action and emotional tension, with a satisfying conclusion.

I love Science Fiction Romance and have my firm favourites, but I would be hard-pressed to think of another book that really, really blew me away the way Tethered has. What an amazing and original premise and fantastic world building. Fantastic, yes, yet totally plausable because it's fundamentally all about the difficulties of relationships, irrespective, and in spite, of the origins of the participants. Just like here on Earth. Where there's a will, there's a way.

I love Tyree and Zander, and I especially like that their journey wasn't easy or obvious. Stories where the protagonists coincidentally or conveniently connect are always fun to read, but it's all the more engrossing when there is nothing contrived about characters crossing paths as I feel Pippa Jay has achieved with Tethered. The layers of complexity in this short story grabbed and pulled me along at breakneck speed and once I started, I couldn't and didn't want it to stop.

I always know I've found a great book when I feel emotionally connected to the characters and actually want to get involved in their ups and downs. Tethered does that as an exhilarating and all-encompassing Science Fiction Romance experience with a very satisfying - and excitingly open - ending that makes me yearn for more about Tyree and Zander and their fascinating cultures.

Being a clone and an assassin is all Tyree knows. It is what she was made for and she isn't used to getting involved with others. Her newest assignment may be her hardest yet. She has just learned a secret about herself and her new assignment is to help Zander make a peace treaty. She has to pretend to be his love who was killed and still protect him. Zander has gave everything for his job and just wants to finish it. Tyree may resemble his late love but she is far from being her. Someone doesn't want their mission to pass and will do anything to stop them. While they grow closer to each other so does someone who will kill to stop them.

Tyree is very smart, tough and knows how to get the job done. She doesn't understand what she begins to feel for Zander. She does everything she can to protect him. She doesn't understand a lot about what a relationship is. Zander is really a shell of a man until Tyree gets him to open his heart again. He is tough and doesn't give up easy.

I liked this book and both characters really don't know for sure what is growing between them. Tyree wonders if Zander sees her or his past love and I'm glad she uses her head and has that thought. Both of them put there selves in danger to save the other even when it is Tyree's job to protect Zander. He still jumps in to help her even when he knows e has to stay alive or much will be lost. I love her ability and it was a neat to read about. I have to say I really didn't see the ending coming. Tyree has a horrible time and I wondered if she would survive. Even tough as she is she has a weakness and it just made her more great. If you like a sci-fi book about fascinating people and different abilities I would recommend this one to you.
