One of the favorite genres here at The Library is science fiction, so I was very excited when I found that this book was up for review as part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Victoria will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour, so check out the Rafflecopter to see all the ways you can enter.
The Zoastra is part of the Earthseekers, an organization originally designed to go into space. Its new mission is to find Earth’s enemies.
Ariel is stuck on a Victorian planet and steals Grace’s body and life to get off the planet. Grace must get her body back before Ariel bonds with Grace’s husband, Peter. Then there is Cross, the man on a mission to find those who killed his family. Ariel is attracted to Cross, but she’s stolen someone’s life.
I really enjoy sci-fi books that deal more with relationships than straight science. And, this one certainly does that in spades. We have two couples featured: Grace and Peter, Ariel and Cross. How things work out for the four of them is the question of the day.
There is a lot of action along the way. I thought Peter a little too willing to make allowances for Ariel/Grace. I'm glad he finally convinced himself of the truth of the matter.
Arial and Grace-- I wanted to slap them both--Ariel more than Grace. I think I would have been behaving just like Grace had I been in that situation. And, Ariel should have spoken up earlier about the truth of the situation with her and Peter. I would have liked her better then.
All in all, if you like space soap operas (as I do), this is a book you'll enjoy. I could SO see this as a movie! 4 Stars.
During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.
When she woke up to what she wanted, the dream of writing became so obvious. She dreams of writing professionally, where her barista can make her coffee and a walk on the beach, can motivate her tales. Contemporary romances are just fun to write. She’s always thinking whose getting hurt and whose story is next on the list to fall in love. Victoria’s love of writing has kept her centered and focused through her many phases, and she’s motivated to write many stories.
