More like 2.5 stars but rounded up for good measure. The entire first half of this book is nothing but the two main characters figuring out their feelings for each other. It goes on and on and on and on and on. I was getting super tired of it and che ...more

This one started out a bit slow for me. I kept at it because I didn't have anything else to read at the time, and I'm glad I did. The story was good. The main bad guy, the Blight, is never really explained well, and the end of the book left me kind o ...more

Pretty much just another Black Jack Geary book. It's gotten to the point where if you've read one, you've read them all. Not that they aren't entertaining, but they are definitely repetitive. This one throws in some new enemies/friends, but it's stil ...more

This book reads like a Mercy Thompson book in space! A kick-butt woman who is always getting into trouble and somehow manages to eke by every time and stay alive. There is a bit of a romance thing going on which is slightly cheesy, but I'm not really ...more

Definitely the middle book in a series. You know, the kind that just feels like filler and don't really move the story forward much? It had it's interesting moments, mostly having to do with the biologist from book 1, but in general is was pretty slo ...more

Not what I was expecting. It was entertaining enough, I guess, but I'm not a huge fan of murder mystery type stuff and that's really what this was. I was hoping for more of the alternate history thing at the forefront, but the story really could have ...more
