Award-winning author Nancy J. Cohen is back with another sci-fi/romance series and it’s every bit as good as her Light-Years series. It has everything: suspense, mystery, danger, excitement, non-stop action, romance, humor . . . but mostly it’s just lots and lots of fun. Cohen has a knack for creating characters that draw you in, keep you engrossed, make you want to follow their journey and see where it leads. But who aren’t always very likeable at the start. They can be prickly and difficult an ...more

Many people know award winning author Nancy J. Cohen due to her Bad Hair Day mystery series, which currently has its tenth book published. However, I first read Cohen a few years ago when I reviewed her intergalactic story Silver Seranade. Now, she is busy writing more sci-fi romance, with her touch of comedy included, and I've just recently read Warrior Prince (#1 in her new Drift Lord series) that came out this past Fall.

As always, her female characters are superb role models for women on how
This is the first book in the Drift Lords series by Nancy J. Cohen. The book opens up with Nira Larsen heading to the employment office of an amusement park just for adults called Drift World. At this amusement park, you can role play any job you could possibly want. Nira is applying for a job as a cosmetician. But things start getting freaky when the woman holding the interview, Algie, can't get Nira to fall under her mind control spell and starts to take her hostage. Just as Nira is panicking, ...more

What a delightful surprise this book was! I read a lot of paranormal, but I don't normally read books with beings from another planet. I did really enjoy this book and can't wait for the others in this series! I was excited to see that Ms. Cohen is going to do Paz's book next. She just can't leave him like that! The action was fast moving and the characters were ... in a word... wonderful! I loved that the conflict wasn't the same old, same old and the characters were able to resolve their issue ...more

This book is a wonderful start to a great new series. I have enjoyed Nancy Cohen's Bad Hair Day Myseries and although I normally do not read sci fi, once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. It is a real page turner. A wonderful mix of exciting adventure, mystery and romance with science fiction and mythology. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. ...more

Fab new futuristic series!

An ordinary tour guide job turns into an almost Wizard of Oz-like adventure for Nira Larson when she lands in the middle of an insurrection – to take over Earth! Mighty Zohar catches her eye and more as they team up to battle an ancient enemy.

Cohen’s Drift Lord series weaves science fiction, fantasy, and ancient Norse mythology in a sexy tapestry of action, adventure, and love. A fun read. Can’t wait for the next book!

The Warrior Prince, the first in a series, comes across as a combination of stories. It starts out in the science-fiction realm, with a group of men from another planet trying to rid Earth of the bad guys from a very different planet. About halfway through, the story takes a leap into the ancient tales from Norse Mythology as the characters repeat ancient quests and reacquaint themselves with the Norse Gods.

This combination has potential to work well in a story. However, readers will have a har

This book is such a mixture and once I got into it, I really enjoyed it. There are elements of sci-fi, fantasy, mythology, paranormal, and humor wrapped up in a steamy romance. There is quite a bit going on, but it works. Zohar is the leader of the Drift Lords and is trying to save Earth and everyone else and ends up getting involved with Nira who has special powers that she never knew about. A fun, action-packed, steamy read. The next book in the series is out now and I can't wait to get to it. ...more
I liked it! It was too much going on in the book for it too end like that. If it had a better ending I would of gave it a higher rating.
