Enjoyable if you take it at that and leave your expectations for anything fresh and exciting at the first page.

Rating: 3.25🌈

Declared, second in the Star Marked Warriors series, is better then the first book. While that one had to establish the universe the authors needed for their series, it also included a couple and romance that I found hard to connect with. Plus just some issues with the plot overall.

What I liked here was the gamer/geek in finding himself in Space aspect. Wesley was a gamer/IT geek working on farming games while hoping one day to be able to produce his own. He finds, through his own wishes to be somewhere else, as one of the kidnapees aboard a blue alien ship headed out to the stars!

Does Wes have “Mad electronic skills”? Yes! Do we get to hear Wes say things like “Make it so” on a alien bridge in alien captain chair? Why yes.

Already this book is much more fun. Not believable but a ton more fun.

He also connects with the one blue alien/human hybrid who smiles a lot and well likes his personality too.

Wes and Jax make a great couple. Not sure about the author’s choice of Jax having to proclaim himself the offspring of Zul the Proeliator over and over. Surely a nerd like Wes would have blurted out something like where’s the Temple of Gozer or does that make you the Gatekeeper?

Cause honestly, don’t these authors know about Ghostbusters? SMH

But anyway, there’s a exciting adventure ahead for both. A mission they become embroiled in , as anyone familiar with sci-fi (as Wes himself takes notice) . It’s entertaining and they make a terrific couple.

It ends on a happy note and , while again, still not a believable story, more a comic relief romance in space.

Enjoyable if you take it at that and leave your expectations for anything fresh and exciting at the first page.
