I am loving these episodes more and more with each one.

Nero Awakening is the third episode in Keary's series and is no less enticing and enthralling as the last two.

While Nero Awakening isn't filled with as much as action as the first two, there is still a great deal going on and we learn more and more about the Nero and their abilities. I won't give away any details as the blurb fulfills the job of explaining what to expect in this episode.

While this portion focuses mostly on Nova and her learn

This one wasn't as interesting as the first two. Kinda slow so I dropped it a star.

So this review is going to be for the first three episodes which I've read so far. First off and I hate to say it but the price is pretty steep for the amount of pages and reading time you get. The story isn't done and I'm not sure I'm going to continue to pay $2.99 for each 150 pages (approx.) On to the story..

I like the world building and the story arc. It's different and well developed. It has a pretty solid sp

I enjoyed this episode of the series. I was left wanting to know what was going to happen next - something this author excels at doing. I like these characters and learning more about them. I do suggest reading this series in order for more enjoyment since each book picks up where the previous book leaves off.

Didn't like this one as much as the first two but that's okay. I still enjoyed reading it and I'll be waiting for the fourth episode to come out in february :).

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not really big on sci-fi. I read it, but it’s not one of my favorites. However, this series is just killing it! I love how full of depth this series is, and here we are at the third book still going strong. Even though the books are serialized and are shorter, you can’t really tell because the author just packs so much wonderful writing into them. I can’t say too much as I don’t want to spoil anything, but I’ll say what I can. Nova is wrestling with her visions, and ...more

This series has just been exceptional. It has so many things going for it. It’s sci-fi for one. The writing is superb. It’s action packed, and so full of excitement. Each episode is better than the last. The encompassing storyline had me hooked from book 1. And I normally don’t read a lot of sci-fi.
And these covers are absolutely stunning! I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone.

This is the third chapter of the Neron Saga and it seems it's just going from strength to strength. While the episodes are shorter than an actual novel you don't feel it because there is so much going on. This episode is a little slower than the previous ones but that's perfect, it really allows you to get to know Nova a little better and develop the relationship with Valen even though they're miles apart. This episode focuses on Nova honing her abilities while trying not to become overwhelmed w ...more

I’m not a fan of serials. This episode was especially lacking IMO. It was just too predictable. I think I’ll wait for a few additional books to be released before I pick this up again.

Nero Awakening is episode 3 in Keary's episodic space-romance drama and it was so highly anticipated! In episode 3, the pacing slowed down a bit, which worked well for Nova and her gang who just arrived at the planet Salypso. Salypso is the hidden and elusive planet which hosts other Neroes and the inhabitants on that planet wishes to remain hidden. But Nova doesn't and she wants to learn all about her newly found powers.
While on the planet, Salypso, Nova learns to wield her Neron powers from he

I am so in love with this series! As we dive deeper into the story of this epic heroine, Nova, I am constantly impressed by the author, Keary Taylor. She just always keeps you guessing, and does such a great job developing characters and the relationships between them. As we got to know some characters a little better, there seems to be a lot being hidden, and that some may not be what they seem. I keep getting the feeling that a certain character in Nova's team, whom I like very much, that has ...more

This series has me hooked!! This is now the third book in the Nero series and I can't read them quick enough! Keary has done an incredible job of building up these characters and really did an amazing job developing their personalities and universe that you find yourself quickly being swept away into another world. I highly recommend reading the previous two episodes before diving into Nero Awakening to fully understand the backstory and why things have built up to where they are now - otherwise ...more

Nero Awakening is the third book in the series by Keary Taylor. If you haven’t read the first two books then I advise you to read those before picking up this book.

This book begins with Nova in her new life learning how to control neron like she always should have been able to do. Preparing for what she knows she needs to do with her life. Nova is a strong independent woman and is prepared to do anything she needs to do to keep her family safe but not only her family, everyone she can possibly

What another fantastic episode to The Neron Rising Saga, I am so excited for episode four.

Nova is a Nero, and she's finally found the one place where she is hoping to find out more about herself and the other Neros. She may not be one of the last, but she may be the last one to fight for what she thinks is right. Plagued by visions she doesn't want to pass, but also pining for Valen she will do anything to change a possible future.

I literally love this whole episode, I admit I missed having as m

I enjoyed reading ‘Nero Awakening’ and felt that it was a great bridge between the last episode and whatever is coming next. Again, this book left me wanting more as we were given more insight into Nova’s new world but there are still many stones left unturned. As always, the book was filled with mystery and ended on a cliffhanger that has left me waiting impatiently for the next book!

I loved how Nova and Edan bonded throughout this book and enjoyed seeing how she grew further as a character. T

Keary Taylor has done it again! I picked this up and couldn’t put it down until it was finished and I was left open mouth gaping omg?! When’s the next release?!?! As per usual for her it’s left on a solid cliffhanger and the suspense is killing me. I must know what happens next! Nova grows as a character throughout this episode developing a few relationships but mostly we see her gain control of her powers and push herself to new limits. Until this series I’ve never been too interested in space ...more

The 3rd installment of Nero Saga does not disappoint. I’m addicted to this series. We’ve been following Nova in her quest to find out who or what she is. And where her destiny takes her. She came to Salypso to do just that. She finds out exactly what she can do and what she needs to do to be with the man she loves and to save them both.
She finally gets to meet the prophet Evander Nero. Between her and Evander’s visions of the future, the one thing that will provide the key to her future is.....

I'm totally addicted to this series. Keary made it again! This is the third book and I can't wait for the fourth. Nova is incredible, she is so brave and has no self preservation when it comes to protect the people she loves. Valen our supposedly villain I'm sure that all that have read these books share my opinion that there is no way to hate him after knowing his background. I loved this book so much. Nova trained so hard to get the knowledge she needs to save her loved one and even the galaxy ...more

Here we are at episode three.
I am LOVING this series.

In this episode Nova’s training increases and she decided her future. She trains hard and improves exponentially every day. In a matter of lunars she feels she’s ready for the next step.
All the while she is haunted constantly by visions and dreams of the future. Her future with Valen and their children. She is tormented by what she sees and decided that it simply cannot be.
We are left gasping for more at the end of this episode. I’m so eage

I have been a long time fan of Keary Taylor and love that she is quick to get new books out. Its so easy to pick up this book and get lost in the world that Nova is living in. Everything is explained is detail so it makes it easier to imagine it while reading. It makes the experience all the more better. I will always recommend Her books to anyone a fan of Fiction and Fantasy. Can't wait for the next episode.

This was another great book in the series. I loved the snippets of future predictions. The character development for Edan made him lovable. A major flaw for me was that I felt nothing was happening. Nova wandered around the island gathering information here and there for the majority of the book. I would have loved to read more about her training and interactions with other Nero on the planet (and maybe a few to join in her mission). I can’t wait to read what happens next.
Jan 17, 2019 rated it really liked it
I'm so in love with series. In this episode Nova feels so alone and torn with all her future dreams she having. I was really heartbreaking to see her suffer like this. I was happy to learn more of Edan. He is crazy and is exactly what Nova will need soon. My only small complaint is nothing really happened besides training. I know its important and she really needs to train and need more but i just felt short. I am still way excited for episode 4!!!!

Nova and her group have found the Bahiri and the Nero hidden away on their own planet.
Nova is learning everything about how to use and control the power. She's learned more about the prophecy but doesn't think it's her.
She's seeing parts of her future with Valen, she doesn't like some of it and it's up to her to change it.
Leaving everyone behind except Edan they are putting their plan in action.

A world that exists through the power of Neron, and people who can draw its power from the very molecules surrounding them to wield that power as a weapon, or to heal, or to create? Good golly, I can't wait to read the next episode. Actually, I can't wait to see this epic on a giant IMAX screen. Can someone make this a movie? Please? In the meantime, my imagination is doing a pretty good job of visualizing Taylor's details. I can't wait for episode four!

The only negative thing I can say about this's just too short!! It leaves me really wanting so much more - I love the concept but I am Impatient sometimes ;D
I love the relationships that are forming, the slight edge of madness due to visions and alternate realities.
I can't wait to read the next chapter as it's getting real now and I can't wait to be on Novas journey with her.

Nova and her group have found the Bahiri and the Nero hidden away on their own planet.
She's learning from them how to control and use the power.
She's seen glimpses of her and Valen's future and she's taking steps to change it.
Leaving with only Edan to put their plan into action not knowing if they will return.

So so GOOD!!! This series just keeps getting better and better, the way this story unfolds I get completely pulled in, I feel like I am just as irritated with things when Nova is irritated. I honestly cannot say enough about how awesome the Nero series is :D
I really am crazy for these books and can't wait to see how this story continues to develop.

Picked this book up and then couldn't put it down.... this book is a period of growth for Nova, it really helps with her character development. I really enjoyed how Keary paced the growth of the characters, it never felt too rushed out or drug on like some books has. Again this book gives us enough suspense to leave us waiting impatiently for the next book!

Once again Keary has given us another amazing episode. This is really good from start to finish, like the other 2 episodes before. Nova is just one amazing character, she is a badass in my eyes. Overall it’s a must read now. I need more now too. I would love for this to be a movie or a tv series. Thank you Keary for another wonderful story!
