Who doesn’t like kinky aliens?! Ahh, everybody should 🙂 A new author for me as I was looking something kinky and sci-fi, this one popped out. It was entertaining, funny with a bit of romance and some hot sex. We are thrown right into explanation of alien anatomy and their need for women to reproduce. Commander Kellen is on Earth to gather them when he notice one exceptional woman – Dr. Monica. He quickly claims her as his mate and she is swiftly acquaintance with their anatomy first hand. She is shocked with revelation of her genetics and past but in the end everything fits to its place. It was a quick read and there were moments I really wanted to shake the main characters, so much could be avoided if they only talked and listened and not just assume. I was struggling a bit with their technology and their anatomy regardless of description. There were moments that tried to be emotional but something was lacking. Overall it was an ok romance and fun read for me.
What a wonderful read. I admit that Mrs. Reisz is one of my favourite and go-to authors without checking the blurb. If she wrote it I will read it. Her writing is wonderful and consumable. Her characters are well built and realistic, her scenes and dialogues pull you in. This book will have you question your moral values, because the line between right and wrong is not solid, there is a huge grey space between. Allison was an orphan, who was adopted by neuro surgeon Vincent Capello. He was nice, smart, rich and loved to help troubled children. She was happy with her adoptive family. While living with him, she had an accident that left her with a memory gap. She is forced to leave her adoptive father, brothers and sister who she loved deeply. Now as an adult she receive the letter from her stepbrother Roland that Mr. Capello is dying. She still holds a grudge against them that they didn’t fight for her, but decides to come to visit them anyway. She has to face the past and back there it is revealing layer by layer. Nothing is as it first seemed and every truth will be questioned….
This is the first book I read by Haruki Murakami. I heard a lot about this author and came across some great reviews but I still did not know what expect. This is definitely not a regular story. It is twisted, philosophical, spiritual fantasy altogether. The metaphysics reality can be somehow confusing at the beginning. Every character has its own story but they are all connected in some way, but as the story developed the thing are making more sense / or as much as they can. The mystery behind every event is surrealistic. The writing is wonderful, the side stories and conversation as well. There is the contrast between characters and events but in the end everything melts together. It seems like every path has its own meaning and there is symbolism everywhere. There seems to be so much knowledge behind but it was a great experience to read Kafka on the shore. Few of my favorite quotes: Pointless thinking is worse than no thinking at all. Things outside you are projections of what’s inside you, and what’s inside you is a projection of what’s outside. So when you are step into the labyrinth outside you, at the same…
I received this book in exchange for an honest review She is Angel 6.0 created in labs to perfect the human genome….but sometimes she is more human than human. Her journey is amazing but also painful. Her need to belong and feel like a human is driving her through the whole galaxy. We start with little knowledge of her abilities but throughout the story we get to learn much more. The story is filled with tragedy, drama, sex, pain, masochism, slavery…. The reader is sucked into the dark world of aliens, crime, violence, non-con sex, pain, bdsm aspects but there is even place for love and romance, even though nonconventional. I thought she will never get some deserved happiness. She lost so many people she loved but let’s admit she did fall in love fast. Vicious things happened to her but she fought for what she believed. She was like a killer machine when done wrong but with more empathy than real humans. There are many different dimensions of this book. Author created extraordinary world and species with their own politics, rules and language. Nevertheless there are still things that keeps us wondering and on the edge till the end….
