Deia has difficulty keeping partners; no matter how hard they try, they keep winding up dead. Bad enough in a special operations unit, but Deia is a Gemini, meant to work with a partner at a level of intimacy that leaves all his other relationships dull and distant by comparison.

Tired of his partners dying, Deia is ready to transfer to Scorpio, where working alone isn’t a...more

Review posted at Brief Encounters Reviews.

The government’s offensive agency is called the Zodiac Force, made up of different types of operatives with different skill sets and responsibilities. Scorpios are the solo fighting force, such as snipers; Taurus are demo experts; Aries are the communication between different operatives in the field; and Gemini are two-person teams of elite fighters. They do all different kinds of work (though it all seems pretty unapologetically offensive in nature) and...more
I enjoyed the book. Of course, I'm a huge fan of tech, whether in books or in real-life. The idea of the Gemini suits was only too appealing. I wouldn't be able to do it myself but the theory was fun.

The characters were interesting and I really enjoyed that. Deia made me want to hug him. He can obviously take care of himself but that urge still existed. Phade cracked me up with his dialogue and I might have fallen in love with his hair a little. Even the side characters were fun. I know they're...more
I waffled on this one for months because the blurb and excerpt left me feeling that it was going to go horribly wrong ten pages in. I'm glad I finally sucked it up and bought it, though, because I was so wrong. It was a tale beautifully spun, if far too short for all the wonder it set up. I really hope there are more tales in this universe. It's very well thought out, all the side characters and positions being clearly developed, to the point it practically aches for a series.

Both of the MCs wer...more

I really, really, really liked this techy story. I’ll do my best to translate the basics because the blurb doesn’t do it justice. In this futuristic world clandestine field operatives working for a mysterious, might for right organization called Zodiac Force are divided into groups and interact in teams as their designations dictate. If there is some wrong in the world, Zodiac is your group. The Gemini work in pairs (of course), each wearing a wonderous, body hugging suit that is triggered by a...more

I really hope there’s going to be more (and not just a teaser based on the title) – as in a series based on this fascinating world! It’s hard to imagine anything more intimate than being able to commune with someone else to the extent that you can actually feel through their sense of touch (what they feel, you feel), monitor their heart rate, etc. But, that’s exactly what two matched Gemini are capable of. Deia and Phade were a very good match – comparable skills, thoughts, and lots of heat when...more

The story wasn't bad, but I guess sci-fi isn't really for me.
There was quite a bit of action and the dialog betweent the MC was funny, but I guess I was just missing a bit more emotion or feeling as to why the MC's connected.

Great start to a series. World building was very good and I look forward to learning all about the different divisions of the Zodiac Force.
Yes. All I have to say is, "Please, sir ma'am, I want some more."
