This is the first book in the Obsidian Rim series that I have read I had no trouble reading it out of order, but I think I might have enjoyed it more if I had read it in order. A well written story that I did enjoy. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Easy read

Being entertained never fails to happen with this author. This was an easy read, and it had some unusual characters and was a romance of a different kind but still a romance. Sci-fi setting added interest and action for this easy easy read.
