Molly Reviews: Hunter’s Hope by Hannah Walker (Avanti Chronicles Book 5)

Blurb:
An outing takes a dangerous turn when the life of a little one is nearly lost and traps are discovered littering clan lands. Hunter, Tir, and the clan travel to all corners of Derin land, determined to face the threats and remove the men responsible for them.

Even his fabled Avanti training may not be enough to prepare Hunter for a new enemy. It will take every skill he possesses—physical and mental—to overcome what lies ahead.

With one of their own missing, and dangers closing in on all sides, help comes from a surprising source.

The men set out on both a rescue mission and quest to seek out those who are intent on destroying them. With a determination borne of desperation, they use everything in their arsenal to complete their mission.

Unsure who they can trust, the men fight not only for love and survival, but also everything they hold dear.

Bray and Hunter, separated from their teammates, have crash-landed onto an unknown planet. Their first encounter with the inhabitants of this strange, new world is not what they expected.

The Avanti finally meet a foe they aren’t sure they want to engage in battle, much to the amusement of the men who come to investigate the crash.

Instinct drives them to trust the men who offer them sanctuary and they make their way to the city, where strange new beasts and political intrigue await them. Despite settling onto the new world and finding it easy to form new friendships, they still possess a driving need to find the other Avanti.

When the political intrigue on Landran tries to claim a new victim, Hunter and Bray rush to their new friends’ aid. As they lend their brains and brawn to the Landrans it takes them on an adventure they never imagined, and hopefully towards the remaining Avanti.

Guest Post, Extended Excerpt and Giveaway: Ardulum: First Don by J.S. Fields

Blurb:
Ardulum. The planet that vanishes. The planet that sleeps.

Neek makes a living piloting the dilapidated tramp transport, Mercy’s Pledge, and smuggling questionable goods across systems blessed with peace and prosperity. She gets by—but only just. In her dreams, she is still haunted by thoughts of Ardulum, the traveling planet that, long ago, visited her homeworld. The Ardulans brought with them agriculture, art, interstellar technology…and then disappeared without a trace, leaving Neek’s people to worship them as gods.

Neek does not believe—and has paid dearly for it with an exile from her home for her heretical views.

Yet, when the crew stumbles into an armed confrontation between the sheriffs of the Charted Systems and an unknown species, fate deals Neek an unexpected hand in the form of a slave girl—a child whose ability to telepathically manipulate cellulose is reminiscent of that of an Ardulan god. Forced to reconcile her beliefs, Neek chooses to protect her, but is the child the key to her salvation, or will she lead them all to their deaths?

Molly Reviews and Giveaway: The Chains of Their Sins by Anna Butler (Taking Shield Book 4)

Blurb:
Shield Captain Bennet arrives on the Gyrfalcon to take up his final year’s posting before returning to the Shield Regiment after his rotation out.

On Gyrfalcon he faces up to the fallout from Makepeace—ethical, political and above all, personal. Will he be able to accept necessity: that knowing what the Maess are up to outweighs the humanitarian issues surrounding the prisoners he rescued from Makepeace? Can he ride out the political furore that follows the loss of the dreadnought Caliban? How will he cope with an entire year of serving under his father, Caeden? And worst of all, how in the name of every god in the Pantheon can he stand to see Flynn every single day, with the Fraternisation Regs standing between them and keeping them apart?

It will be an interesting year. Bennet can hardly wait for it to be over. Of course, things never really do go to plan…

Molly Reviews: Passing Shadows by Anna Butler

Blurb:
Li Liang has found a berth to suit her: chief pilot and first officer of the all-female crew of an old space freighter, the Sappho. Then one ordinary, unremarkable morning, Liang retunes the Sappho’s communications systems just in time to catch the breathless, terrible accounts from Mars of the total destruction of Earth.

Earth’s a cinder. The unknown alien race that destroyed it has left Mars, too, in flames and is ravening outward from the solar system, devouring every human colony on the way.

Liang’s one of the few survivors, racing ahead of the Devourers, rescuing as many frightened, shocked people as she can. Will Liang and the pitiful remnants of humanity find a new haven, somewhere to start again? Or will she, too, echo the dreadful last message coming out of their dead home?

They’re coming. Oh God, they’re coming.

Molly Reviews and Giveaway: In Enemy Hands by M.A. Church

Blurb:
Two very different civilizations—one bathed in bright sunlight and the other veiled in shadow.

Bad decisions, declining resources, and a king on the brink of madness force Prince Varo Kutchif, third son of the royal family and a starship captain, to attempt the impossible: barter for Black Phospolrock, an energy source the mysterious Helkan Kingdom has in abundance. Varo opens a line of communication with Adlar, an intriguing Helkan who seems to reciprocate Varo’s interest. He hopes so, because if negotiations collapse, Varo has orders to attack.

The Helkans preside over a planet shrouded in perpetual darkness. Several species have tried to exploit its natural resources through trade with them, but all have failed. Adlar Mondur is the older brother to the Helkan ruler. An assassin of the highest order, he’ll do anything to protect his king and his people—including tracking down the Yesri prince who crash-lands on their planet, leaving an ugly scar across its untouched beauty.

Thus begins a journey where two men from disparate civilizations grow from enemies to lovers.
