Nyxia by Scott Reingten was such a wonderful, inspiring and interesting read. I have never read anything of the like before. Nyxia is not only a story of friendship, hardship and corruption, it is also a story that shows how people grow and succumb to their situation and how some will not give up who they are no matter the price. I literally devoured this book.

Not only the world was intriguing. It was this mix of sci-fi-ish elements combined with the competition that creates a deadly situation in which even the victors are damned in a way.

“Emmet Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.

Forever.

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to planet Eden- a planet that Babel has kept hidden- where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has the quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.

But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.”

 

The struggle in this book was so real and captivating, I felt like I was the one fighting for my life, my future and my sanity.  Babel Corp. doesn’t play games and who isn’t partaking will forfeit their chance of not only winning, but securing a chance of happiness for their whole family.  There isn’t much world-building as the whole story takes place in a space ship. But the characters are three-dimensional, emotional, torn and desperate. This book tells the story of friendship, humanity and the will to survive. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something refreshingly new and mysterious that has the potential to be on your top five list 2017.

Ensnared by Rita Stradling | Review

BowBowBowhalf-bow  3.5/5 Ribbons

and five for the beautiful cover ❤

EnsnaredEnsnared is a really cool, futuristic fantasy/ romance novel that can be devoured within a few short hours. We travel with Alainn, who lives in world where robots have replaced the working class of her society and are a big part of life. They drive cars fo you, the have replaced the police and are maintaining buildings. Organs and food as well as microchips are printed instead of created or cooked. It’s a really interesting world.

Unfortunately, we don’t get to know much about its limitations, how it came to be this way or how most humans cope or work with this situation. Actually, we don’t even know whether there are just much less humans on Earth in general because the book doesn’t tell us anything about this aspect, except what Alainn’s role is in all this.

Her father is a gambling genius who had a big project but couldn’t deliver a robot in time. As it is, the AI robot (artificial intelligence) looks exactly like Alainn and so, through a few circumstances the robot arranged, Alainn is sent to the new owner of the AI robot rose instead, until she can be exchanged with a finished and fully functioning AI robot.

But things, as usual, don’t go as planned and secret plots are discovered, hearts are broken, traumatizing memories haunt the characters involved and there is even a love story going on.

(This book is the fourth book of the Dark Planet Warrior series of Anna Carven. I would strongly recommend to read the first three books of the series before reading Falling.)

BowBowBowBowBow 5/5 Ribbons

Even though this is usually no problem, I want to mention here that only people over the age of 18 should read this book. It contains rude language, violence, death and very steamy sex scenes. I bought Book 1-3 as one single edition.

Glamorous alien love for Katy and Daemon *.*

Second book of the series will have all those of you hooked who didn’t really know what to think of the first book and Daemon’s jerkish attitude. Onyx is full of problems and drama: new friends, new foes, sad stories of people thought lost and found again. It is full of romance of the most electric, send-your-heart-into-cardiac-arrest kind.
