So my friend CC called this a knock off of all our fav blue alien series and I just thought that, "Yeah okay, it might be a knock off but between sexy blue aliens and hot as hell dragon men, I would always go for the dragon."
How could I resist?
So did it seem similar? YES! Ridiculously similar.
Based on what I just read, if I ever end up in a situation where I have to choose between blue horned aliens and dragon men with wings, to spend the rest of my life with . . . I'm going with the sexy blue ...more
I was in the mood for a silly entertaining sci-fi romance, also Dragon's Baby reminded me of the Ice Planet Barbarians, but this one was short of the mark.
The beginning was fun and engaging, I especially liked the scene where the cheeky old man forgot his ID and was outrageous and funny. Things quickly deteriorated as soon as they got boarded by space pirates, crash land on a desert alien planet and no one was injured even though they were all without safety gear and passed out in the ...more
Много ми хареса. Честно казано, вероятно защото супер много харесвам поредицата за Варварите от ледената планета на Руби Диксън, и фактът, че тази поредица много наподобява поредицата на Руби даде голям плюс към цялостното ми впечатление от книгата.
Калиста е ботаник. Целият си живот, тя е прекарала на космически кораб, пътуващ към далечна дестинация, където да се преселят хората. Изчислено е, че едва петата генерация хора, пътуващи на кораба ще достигнат до новата планета, която иска ...more
I’ve found a new crack obsession. My definition of crack is a crazy balls-out premise, an alien hero (different color and/or unusual appendages are a MUST), a tried and true romance formula and a fascinating ‘verse that captures my interest. Boy, has the Dragons of Tajss delivered. Does it have its flaws? Yep. Do I give a flying zemjla? Nope, not even a little bit.
A mishmash of different fantasy/sci-fi components that we’ve seen in shows from Dr. Who to Beetlejuice, this is a series ...more
1st) Too many modern day movie references for me to honestly believe this story takes place in the distance future, a future where the heroine is a third generation passenger on a ship.
2nd) The writing style was confusing at times. Example; a pirate blocks the path of the heroine and her friends. Suddenly he has a hole in his head... Never explained how it got there. It's just there and the pirate is (ex machina style) dead. There were a lot of instances like this where things weren't explain ...more
The plot is a good one even if it reminds me of another series just hot and not icy. However that’s where the good ends since this story goes down hill quickly.The heroine is a weeping silly spineless mess so you really never feel any real connection to her. Guy saves her and has treated her well he shows some interest a lady nut job runs off screaming in a unfamiliar alien world only to be captured and require saving from the very alien that saved her before. They hav ...more
Red Planet Dragons of Tajss Book 1
by Miranda Martin, Juno Wells
WOW! This is a Spectacular read. What a phenomenal story that's written so well with lots of humor. The dialogue is clever, awesome and incredible. The characters are creative, amazing, unique and captivating. I absolutely adore the way Miranda and Juno always do a phenomenal job with the alien worlds, scene descriptions and characters. This is a truly FANTASTIC story! This story is about Ladon and Calista. Ladon ...more
"She has no sense! No protection, no weapons, not strong enough to lift a baoba limb on her own and she runs off blindly. Stupid and dangerous." These words by Ladon describe Calista perfectly.
She starts out the book seeming pretty intelligent. She's a biochemist who wears glasses. But once she crashes on the planet her glasses disappear (with no mention of them or indication she has any decrease in vision) and her intelligence disappears as well. The rest of ...more
It's like a cross between Last Hour of Gahn and Ice Planet Barbarians. Not very original but still, if you like those kinds of stories and try not to compare every little thing you should like this as well. I'm going to download the next book in the series, I want to find out how Jolie takes to being kidnapped and hope she doesn't put up too much fuss. Oh, and I hope she doesn't have as many TSTL moments as calista did because, damn, that girl didn't listen for crap and made so many s ...more

Let's jump right into this review. Calista, is someone who I don't know how to feel about. She has some great characteristics when it comes to being a heroine but then she has some of the worst as well. The lack of self-confidence and the constant doubt drove me batshit crazy. All I wanted was for her to understand that Ladon just wanted to be with ...more
It was an okay read I'm not sure how the rest of the stories will turn out I just finished reading the preview for the next book about Jolie who goes missing at the end of this book, but already the author has screwed up her own timeline...Jolie goes missing sometime after Calista left her to go tell Lodan that she is pregnant and in the preview Jolie wakes up and the last thing she remembers is the attack getting slung into some rocks and being saved by a different zmaj warrior, whi ...more
I almost didn't read this just because of the title. This is actually a lot more creative and insightful than I expected. This isn't an action-packed, edge of your seat book, nor is it a fluff book without a storyline. This story is very carefully plotted with a great care for detail and it's not rushed. It's pure survival.
I really appreciate the interactions of not only the characters, but that of the world around them. Landon and Calista are an odd pair in ...more

In order to save Calista's life, Ladon feeds her epis which allows her to tolerate the harsh environment. She later learns that once a person has taken epis, they can never leave Tajss. ...more
