The war with the alien stin is over, but Felix Ingesson has given up on seeing his lover, Zander Anatolius, ever again. Zander's military file is sealed tighter than an airlock. A former prisoner of war, Felix is attempting a much quieter life keeping his ship, the Chaos, aloft. He almost succeeds, until Zander walks on board and i

Rating: 4* of five

Romantic fiction doesn't need much to keep the people buying...lovers separated by factors within their control and/or outside their control who, despite the obstacles, choose to make love work. It's a trope that's worked for millennia, it will work for as long as human beings keep falling in love.

This story goes above and beyond the basics in an important way. It develops the world the men who are the primary couple inhabit to a significantly greater degree than others in the

I love science fiction especially if it's set in space. This space opera MM romance is a very pleasant suprise. It has the right balance of romance, action, angst and adventure. Both MCs have good chemistry and the rest of the Chaos crew are very likeable. Exciting, fun, enjoyable and the book ended with me wanting to read more adventures from Felix & Zed & the rest of the Chaos crew. 4.5 Stars!

Update:
Ok, I just learned that this is going to be a 5 part series. That's pretty exciting!

This first book in the Chaos Station series took me by surprise, pulling me in with great characters, interesting and consistent SciFi worldbuilding, action, angst and romance. I bought the next book the moment I closed this one, and then read through the entire series back to back. Very well done.

Zander is a man badly betrayed by the government he worked for. He sacrificed his relationships, his health, and part of his humanity, and helped them win the war. Now that the conflict with the alien

Making lemonade.

Post-war is never easy, but when you're struggling to figure out how to play the hand you're stuck with afterwards is a challenge. Felix and Zed: best friends, teammates, lovers--until they're torn apart. Suddenly, that drift is gone, and the truth of what's happened to both of them is standing starkly in front of them, waiting to be acknowledged.

This was pretty good for a science fiction romance. It's a hurt comfort and a bit of a thriller as the crew of the Chaos faces off agai

This book pushed all my buttons...

5 -quite literally- all over the moon stars




There is an excellent worldbuilding, two –in the truest sense of the world– tortured heroes and a well-written, sometimes funny, sometimes thrilling story.

Chaos Station is the story of two friends since childhood and lovers for a short period of time, torn apart by a war between Humans and other species. One of them is Felix, deemed dead after being captured by the enemy. Instead, he’s been a POW who has been torture

So good...great characters, including the secondary ones, and an interesting story. Liked the world building, the action, and the romance. Also liked the set-up for future books, without ending on a cliffhanger.

I'm ready for the next one!

Possible spoilers below.



After nine years apart, former soldiers Felix Ingesson and Zander Anatolius meet again under less-than-perfect circumstances. The two aren't that thrilled to see each other. Trying to come to terms with personal demons and past events that were out of their control, they make truce to deal with more immediate concerns. Like finding a former teammate who seems to have gone off the deep end, and is now being hunted by the military.

I am glad i did get around to reading this. It is a really interesting scifi story and i love all the potential this has for the series. I admit that I kinda wanted everyone to just get the hell over their issues, but i guess ptsd and massive amounts of torture can not just be wished away. and the ending was a bit sad, if also a bit hopeful. going to have to continue this series and see where it all goes.

Fantastic sci-fi adventure with a dash of romance to spice it up.

DNF-ed at 55%. One star for what I could stand to read.

The following is my personal opinion and my own impression of the book. I understand everyone else is loving it to pieces, but I managed to only last 55% before my patience and pain tolerance ran out.

Maybe it's because I've just finished absolutely brilliant Magpie Lord series, maybe it's because the characters are flat, boring, repetitious and predictable comparing to the vibrant personages of yet another brilliant series, Claimings, Tail

2.5/5
Enjoyable in part, but mostly disappointing. My biggest problem is that Chaos Station feels less like a complete novel in a series and more like "part one" in a serial. It's too short—there's no time for nearly enough action or relationship/character/world development. Like I said, there were enjoyable moments that gave the book potential, so it's a shame that the authors only skimmed the surface instead of digging deeper.

My Review:
I don't read sci fi romance very often, so I forget just how much I enjoy it. This was a really great story...it combined some of my favorite things...male/male romance, friends to lovers, military romance, and sci fi romance.

In this story the two heroes haven't seen one another in 9 years...mainly because Zan thought Felix was dead and then he went deep, deep undercover into black ops and never heard that Felix's status had been changed. In this world, which is about 240 years into t

Review:
This book was exactly the kind of angsty, struggle-filled relationship story that I wanted. Zander and Felix used to be best friends and then, briefly, lovers, but they got separated because of the war. Not only that, Zander thought Felix was dead. So once they ended up on the same ship, of course things got interesting. Even though the book didn’t make me emotional the way I wanted it to, I still loved all those realistic feelings of longing and sexual tension and confusion betwee

In this sci-fi romance, we are immersed in a new futuristic world following a war between the humans and the Stin that the humans were in danger of losing before the Guardians, a super alien race stepped in to stop the battles. But the casualties were great, including the separation of long time friends and one time lovers Zander (Zed) and Felix (Flick). Long believing Flick is dead, Zed is on a mission to rescue a former teammate who appears to be losing her own mental battle of survival when h ...more

This was fun. Echoes of “Star Wars,” but not in another place and time…It’s the good old Milky Way Galaxy and It’s 2269. Humans are just another alien race at the crossroads of the galaxy, which, and I quote, “ain’t that big.” The ashushk are gentle and smart and gender-flexible (like the fabled “little green men,” only blue), while the stin are fierce and warlike and monstrous. Hovering in the background are the guardians, a

This sci-fi reads more like a military story than a science fiction one. But it is set in space in some unknown future time so it falls into the sci-fi category. It has just enough romance in it that I almost called it a sci-fi romance. However, it has so much more than that.

The main characters, as well as the secondary characters, are well developed and we get to know them. We see their lives in both past and present and become engaged with their struggles. It's an emotionally compelling story

Due to come out March 02, 2015 through Carina Press, this science fiction, space opera takes a hard look at what happens to some soldiers after a war ends and the government is no longer taking responsibility for their mental and emotional recovery and their social reintegration. From childhood friends to best friends at a military academy, Felix and Zander had cemented their friendship with a whirl-wind five-day affair before the war erupting across the galaxy split them up. Zander, from a weal ...more

This science fiction romance kind of took me by surprise. While it reminded me a bit of one of my favorite television series, Firefly (still one of the best sci/fi series to EVER hit network TV, I’m still a bit bitter about it being cancelled) it had enough differences to seem fresh. There was also the small matter of it having a second chance at love trope and as everyone knows that shit is like catnip to me. I couldn’t keep m

ETA: I'm going to re-read this so I can catch up on this series!

This was really good! I haven't read a Sci Fi romance in ages, so it took me a little while to get into the right frame of mind but once I figured out all the world building and got to know the players I was fully into the story.

This is a reunion romance, but one where the the couple has been friends since they were kids and lovers for only a short week before war tore them apart, so it was very different from your usually estrange

DNF.

This book just isn't my thing.

1)It is very low and very light on scifi elements which was the main reason I picked this up. One of those stories that are completely detached from setting- you can take the romance and characters out and put them in completely different setting/genre and story wouldn't change much. Which means that..
2)It's mainly romance. And I admit it's the type of romance I really don't like to read. Hence the reason for my dnf. Angsty and completely irrational: this is adu

Колебалась между оценками 3 и 4
Первая книга читается легко, без особого погружения, местами было очень интересно. Главная пара понравилась! Вообще за первую книгу я даже поставила бы 4, если бы не вторая... Которую я бросила на 20%, ибо сплошное нытье и страдания... Да я бы и их выдержала, если бы автор придумала другого антигероя, но просрать такой потенциал на пресловутых террористах? Это как даже не смешно.

I liked this as a set-up book, introducing interesting and likeable characters, but it felt like a lot was left unsaid. Although there's no cliffhanger, if there weren't more books to follow-up on what was started here, this would not be totally satisfying on its own.

3.75-4 Stars
This book is science fiction and based in space. It’s a M/M novel. The main character Zander (also known as Zed and Loop) is a war hero who had been genetically altered along with a few others in his group. The alterations make them weapons of war when they zone out.
The book starts when Zandor propositions a ship to help aid in his rescue of an ally. When he boards the ship he finds Felix—the man he loved and thought dead for years. Both have changed from scars to behav
