He takes a step forward, shaking his head twice, with absolute conviction. “You’re not nothing, Nova.”
In the Eon galaxy, Dominion controls any planet with solid Neron deposits, and Nova just found out they’re coming for hers. Korpillion isn’t supposed to have any Neron—the galaxy’s purest form of energy—but Nova Ainsley has been working with the owner of a ...more
Neron Rising is a totally different genre that I have read before but was very intrigued to see what Keary would bring us. Neron Rising is a Sci-Fi/Romance and is written in episodes (something not to me) but st ...more
This is the first instalment so definitely not a whole book but I felt thoroughly drawn in and very intri ...more
The front cover drew me towards this book, it had a very Star Wars feel to it and I adore this type of genre when it comes to reading. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I came to the realisation that it was 88 pages long but it feels so much longer than that because of how great the story itself is.
I loved the whole world that Nova describes, it wasn’t confusing or too much for me as a reader. I tru ...more
In this book, we follow Nova. She's (illegally) making and selling Nero weapons to earn money and survive on this overpopulated and polluted planet. We quickly learn that she is connected and can communicate with someone in h ...more
I like the world building and the story arc. It's different and well developed. It has a pretty solid space opera feel to it and the romance element is well presented and well paced. I re ...more
Nova, an engineer, lives on the planet Korpillion, one of the few planets deemed inhabitable because it doesn't have any Neron. This blue substance, which is in everything and used for its amazing powers, is somet ...more
Keary Taylor is so talented with her writing that every time there's even a whisper of a new book I stalk her endlessly online (Keary, if you're reading this don't freak out : ...more
I myself love any story that takes place on other planets and in the future, but with all the science fiction there is out there, romance usually has a small, censored, role in the var ...more
.... Honor, glory, love. When did we become a galaxy full of survivors?”
In a nutshell.
88 pgs and Im amazed how it still managed to love the story, the characters and worldbuilding . End of episode one left me yearning to read more about this world, about Nova and the fate of their galaxy.
The first chapter felt choppy and didnt really grip my interest, but after that it just got better and better. Its exciting, realistic and I could easily picture the world the author created.
The few issues I fac
Someone in my Reylo discord (yeah I’m trash, but who’s going to fight me willingly about it?!) saw this book recommended on Facebook, and I took one for the team and volunteered to read it. We all love fanfics, but we’re still picky people, of course!
I can see a lot of parallels, but I guess you could apply ...more
As with all of Keary's work, her characters all so well thought out. I absolutely adored Nova (the main character) from the start, she is certainly complex, leads with her heart ...more

I received an eARC via NetGalley and am choosing to leave a fair and honest review
A good book that goes a bit overboard with scifi language that is proprietary to this series is still an exciting and action packed romantic sci-fi adventure. If you can get passed the tech speak like: Lunars for months, Solars for years and various new expletives, the writing is tight and the characters are fantastic. ...more
This novel was a short read and the series is being told in "episodes". In this first episode, we meet Nova, who wants to get off the planet with her father and friend. She has a job but on the side makes weapons illegally with Neron. The Dominion wants control over all the Neron and they currently do not know about the Neron deposits on Korpillion, but secrets never stay secrets forever. Neron has incredible powers when it weapo ...more
From the beginning of this book I really connected with the main character – Nova. She is a character that is kind and caring and although she was taking part in some illegal activities she was doing it for her families future. I ...more

If you‘re a Star Wars fan A LOT of the themes, sceneries, weapons and even characters in „Neron Rising“ will feel familiar to you. The inspiration is so obvious that it borders on plagiarism. For example: The main villain in „Ner ...more
I was pleasantly surprised! This isn’t my normal read but I saw an ad on Facebook and it sounded interesting!
As always my review might contain spoilers so please read at your own risk!
Low. I’m sure this series will have romance but this book didn’t have much.
- The world building was really well done and done in such a way that felt natural. One of my biggest pet peeves with space novels is the world building dump. Where the author just dumps a ton of world infor ...more
Keary Taylor , exceptional book ! Writing was excellent. If you want to leap into an age - if they come ? You jump planet and run . Nova - weapon maker collects her money on the side . On a world yet unknown of the blue Nero - until they find out before she is ready to jump planet.. killing and taking over entire planets . They want all the blue energy . Running to a ship. Given to her by none other - a most feared one , who has just arrived. Mentally connected and sharing tho ...more
