All Adrian Stannis wanted was a quiet corner of the galaxy where he could work on his beloved scientific experiments, but unfortunately, he was born into a world at war, where his people are struggling for survival against a vastly superior alien invasion force and he is a genius who was trained for the very thing he hates, the creation of deadly weapons.
Not to mention, he appears to have been genetically mated to a telepath by his government and he doesn’t find her…uninteresting. In fact, she appears quite intelligent.
So what will happen to this solitary man when his peace is shattered in every way possible and there is nowhere left to run?
Adrian, Kali and Adrian’s personal assistant, Bryce are finally free of the oppressive Empire. They hide on a planet called, Orasis, a tech-4 world on the Outer Rim whose only usefulness is a low-grade source of Tri-Iridium ore. Not the kind of place to find the most advanced weapons scientist in the galaxy. Things go well, relatively, and Adrian and Kali finally have time to develop the relationship they didn’t think possible. Adrian and Bryce even start up their own fix-it business.
Then a stranger arrives on the planet.
If you are a regular follower of this blog you know I love a good Sci-fi although I don’t get around to reviewing them much anymore. When signups came around for these I HAD to because the covers are fantastic and the blurbs told me I HAD to read them.
They didn’t disappoint either. This first book did an excellent job of building the world yet it didn’t bog me down. Adrian grows so much over the first story, it was really amazing. All of the characters were well developed.
The second books jumps right into action and doesn’t quit. It was a incredibly fast read that I didn’t want to put down and I’m looking forward to book 3.
For those of you wanting to dip your toe into Sci-Fi I suggest picking this up because it has romance and is very action packed.
