Two Moons of Sera (Omnibus) by Pavarti K. Tyler

Two Moons of Sera - OmnibusTwo Moons of Sera – Omnibus by Pavarti K. Tyler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The world building and population are mind-blowing. This author has a real knack for creating new races, and even factions within each race. And instead of any one people being clearly defined as the good guys, she portrays the Sualwet and Erdlanders as two different groups of individuals struggling against one another, both fighting for survival. There’s more I’m leaving out so I don’t spoil anything, but the creation of the characters alone is impressive.

This isn’t your typical dystopian sci-fi., content to weave its political message into its prose. Pavarti reached well beyond that particular cliche and came out with a rewarding story of destruction, hope, malice, and love. This is the second book I’ve read by her, and I’ll definitely be reading more from her in the future.

The Reaping (The Seeds Book 2) by K. Makansi

The ReapingThe Reaping by K. Makansi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading The Sowing and The Prelude, I was really torn between two characters I’d fallen for, right along with the female protagonist. Remy Alexander is put through the ringer time and again. Her resilience is impressive. The Reaping is one of those books you can just completely get lost in, even better than the first. Even as a writer, the editor in me was held captivated by the world, the fast pace, and all the characters Makansi made me care about.

I was really worried that there was no way the author could write her way out of the love triangle in a way that would be satisfactory, but I should have known better than to doubt. She took an impossible situation and dealt with it seamlessly, seemingly without effort. I am even more impressed than I was before, and very much looking forward to the final installment. And I sure wouldn’t mind reading another short spin-off from this world, with these characters, as well.

I’d recommend this book to fans of Dystopian Sci-Fi with a healthy dose of Romance.

Mine For Tonight by J.S. Scott: A Book Review

Mine for Tonight ~ Simon (The Billionaire's Obsession, #1.1)Mine for Tonight ~ Simon by J.S. Scott

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I noticed Mine for Tonight was pretty popular, and the premise looked promising, so I picked up a copy. I’m a sucker for a good romance/erotica, especially when they’re on sale or free. I greatly enjoy the developing romance, the tortured longing, and the happy (or implied happy) ending.

This book ended abruptly without resolution, leaving me (forgive the pun but it’s appropriate) unsatisfied. The story is there, but looking at the book’s Amazon page I now see I have to buy four more books to get that closure, and I have to wait until February to get it.

Now, this is my fault for not reading the book’s description thoroughly beforehand, but I’m still disappointed. I was just getting invested in the characters only to have the door into the world slammed in my face. I don’t typically share my negative reviews, and I’m certainly not saying you shouldn’t give this author and these “books” a chance, but I wish I’d read a similar review before purchasing. I don’t like that I’m left with this unresolved conflict, or that I have to buy more incomplete books to get that resolution.

If that doesn’t bother you, then I’d definitely recommend this “series”, just wait till they’re all out in February so you can get a whole book, albeit in increments.
