connection: Starquest—This title features book 4 and 5 of the series
a hundred years into the future by an absolutely gorgeous young man, Carly
Harris quickly turns the tables on the sexy Sensitive who tells her that use of
his telekinetic power leaves him impotent.
He's used a
lot of power to bring Carly forward in time, but he still has plenty left.
Before long, Carly and Tim Riley move beyond their awkward introduction and
discover the reason Tim's libido is so active-Carly is a Synergist, a Sensitive
with the talent to increase the power of those around her.
Does Tim really
love her, or is he using her for the power she gives him? Before Carly can get
past that twenty-year age difference, she needs to learn the truth.
Journey—Bolden, the mixed-species son of Jenna of Earth and Garan of
Mirat, is the only survivor of a freak accident while on his long awaited
StarQuest. Marooned on a primitive world for almost two years, he captures and
then befriends Cene, a beautiful young woman who serves the goddess of her
planet. Bold makes an amazing discovery—not only is Cene's goddess very
real to her, she is also the sentience of the planet, an entity who is able to
take on human form by sharing Cene's body. The goddess wants to experience
passion, something Bolden promises her if she will help him return to Earth.
more than passion with the goddess/woman—he realizes he is also falling
in love. But is it with the guileless young Cene or the immortal Lady who
shares her body. And Evil stalks them. The makao were once ephemeral creatures
of pleasure, created to give the goddess sexual gratification. Now they are
taking on form and substance, as if another entity directs their actions.
In a world
far from home, decisions that will affect an entire planet rest in the hands of
a young half-breed and the woman/goddess he loves.
sold as separate e-books, it is nice to be able to get these books all
inclusive in a two book set, instead of five books. I liked the first story in
this book a little better than the first. In Synergy readers meet a couple who
meet under unusual circumstances. Tim brings Carly back from the future on the
request of one of his fellow rebels. The couple fall in love quickly. Carly
didn't realize that Tim was so young and when she finds out, freaks out a
little about their 20 year age difference.
I liked the
story but had a problem giving it such a high rating because of a major flaw I
saw in the story line. Tim was able to bring by Carly from the future based on
seeing her from his friends vision, yet he couldn't find her when she gets
kidnapped in the movie. Perhaps I missed something while reading. Aside from
that the story was great.
story was fine for what it was, but it could have really been read completely
separate from the series without any connection. The only connection was being
was that Bolden was the son of the couple from book three. I liked the
comparisons in the story, but it shouldn't have been part of the rest. Good
story though if you get away from that part of it. Sci-fi fans will like the
alien and his lion like features in the story.
Connection: Starquest—first three stories
Futurist/Time Travel/Science Fiction
Lionheart —Mara Armand, director of a foundation for the protection and
study of humans with extrasensory abilities, has made telepathic contact with
an alien starship captain orbiting the earth. After weeks of nightly telepathic
visits with Captain Sander, Mara develops an intimate mental relationship with
her unseen alien lover. She experiences his need, his passion, and his sensual
touch, but it is a bittersweet relationship for the laws of the Explorers
forbid them to ever meet.
in space changes everything and Mara and Sander are given the chance they never
thought they'd have. Threatened by World Federation troops from without and
jealous hatred from within, their survival now depends on the strength of their
bond and a ragtag army of young Sensitives willing to risk their lives for an
alien starship captain.
the Cat—Jenna Lang is ready for a change, but traveling to a future earth
and landing in the middle of a rebellion between Sensitives and the World
Federation was not on her list. A sensual encounter with a ferocious but
intriguing Lion of Mirat is something Jenna could never have imagined.
her ultimate sexual fantasy come true, the one love she has always dreamed
of...or is he both?
Imar—Sheyna of Pride Imar makes the journey to earth because she knows
she can help the rebels. She immediately goes to work with Malachi Franklin,
the Rebellion's healer, but their work is interrupted when both of them are
captured by the leader of the World Federation. Sheyna and Malachi discover
that a powerful bond exists between them during these trying times. However,
once they are freed by Rebellion forces, they must determine whether the bond
they feel is one borne of love or necessity.
Originally sold as separate e-books, it is nice to be able to get these books
all-inclusive in a two-book set, instead of five books. Sit back and imagine an
alien race similar in looks to that of Lion complete with a tail, except they
stand on two feet instead of four. This alien race has come to earth at a time
when rather than be curios about those from other planets earthlings are
terrified. They have a kill first and ask questions later mentality.
time is where the first book in the Starquest series takes us. For the most
part this is a pretty good series. The author takes us to a place where only
the imagination can go. If I had to have a complaint it would be that there was
a lot more sex than I would have liked to see and not enough information about
where these aliens came from. That is really the beauty of offering a look at
an alien race.
spends a lot of time explaining the aliens' looks and not enough on who they
are and what they believe. One of the things about sci fi books is that
anything is possible. Falling in love and finding an alien that looks like a
lion and has a tail may seem odd to the reader, but perfectly natural to the
characters. That's the best past of the genre. This book reminds me of the old
Star Trek and Star Wars series in a way. The creators were forever creating
characters that were almost like human but not exactly.
like sci-fi will enjoy this series and getting to meet the lion-like creatures.
Book one sets the scene for the books to come, as well as does a nice job on
setting up the reasons for the war that ensues. Book two, by far the best out
of the three books, develops a nice relationship between the hero and the
heroine, and I like getting the chance to go to the alien's home world. Book three
isn't my favorite. A little too much abuse of the female heroine for my taste,
but a nice ending to the three part series.
