Molly Reviews: The Stark Divide by J. Scott Coatsworth (Liminal Sky Book 1)

Blurb:
Some stories are epic.

The Earth is in a state of collapse, with wars breaking out over resources and an environment pushed to the edge by human greed.

Three living generation ships have been built with a combination of genetic mastery, artificial intelligence, technology, and raw materials harvested from the asteroid belt. This is the story of one of them—43 Ariadne, or Forever, as her inhabitants call her—a living world that carries the remaining hopes of humanity, and the three generations of scientists, engineers, and explorers working to colonize her.

From her humble beginnings as a seedling saved from disaster to the start of her journey across the void of space toward a new home for the human race, The Stark Divide tells the tales of the world, the people who made her, and the few who will become something altogether beyond human.

Humankind has just taken its first step toward the stars.

Molly Reviews: Delphini: Situation Critical by Hannah Walker (Avanti Chronicles Book 4.6)

Blurb:
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.

Please note:
This story takes place at the same time as events from Corin’s Chance, the first book in the Avanti series. Like Delphini: Damage Control, it focuses on the events from the perspective of another Avanti pairing— Bray and Hunter. It can be read at any point after Corin’s Chance.

Guest Post: Snapshots at the Fontaine Motel by Skot Harris

Blurb:
May 1996.

Six friends—inseparable since childhood—seek immediate revenge after one of them is brutally attacked. But their vigilante justice spins violently out of control and leaves the attacker dead, accidentally killed by their own hands.

Desperate to save themselves as the FBI inches dangerously close, they flee Michigan, speeding across state lines and dusty backroads that lead to the Fontaine Motel, an isolated, rundown hideout in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma.

In a few lightning-fast days, their temporary safety leads to much more—self-discovery, love, and deadly secrets that will not only change everything, but threaten the very lives they’re frantic to protect…

Molly Reviews: Delphini: Damage Control by Hannah Walker (Avanti Chronicles Book 2.5)

Blurb:
When Dax and Bell crash land on an unknown planet they only have one objective— find their friends and fellow Avanti. Of course Bell needs to heal up from his injuries first, then they have to work out where to go. Their biggest problem is— they hadn’t counted on the world they landed on being quite as large as it was.

Along the way they encounter hostile local warriors, incredible beasts and more than their fair share of problems. It would be fascinating, if they weren’t so worried about their friends. Dax has gone into damage control mode, as the commander of the Avanti it’s his job, his duty, to see his friends and teammates safe and there is nothing that will stand in the way. Bell, the calmer of the two, has finally found somewhere he can let his inner darintha beast be free and he’s making the most of it, using his darintha senses to help find their missing friends.

Never forgetting their mission, the two embark on a journey that not only tests them to their limits, but also deepens the trust and friendship that being Avanti is all about. Together, they search for their friends, and fight for survival as only the Avanti can.

May your journey be swift and uneventful, may you all get one step closer to your truemates and may good triumph over evil. Remember love conquers all.

This is book 2.5, but it can be read at any point in time after book one. It does not need to be read to follow the main story. It was written because so many asked for what happened to them and for readers to get to know Dax and Bell a little bit better.

Molly Reviews and Interview: Seeking the Storyteller by Jessica Walsh and Briana Lawrence (A Hunters Novel)

Blurb:
I know of the Storyteller, it whispers into the man’s ear, I’ve met him. If you promise not to kill me, I’ll take you to him.

Alix Andre DeBenit and Randall Fagan are Hunters, part of a hidden network of humans who track and kill the monsters lurking in our world so everyone else can pretend they don’t exist. But when a living shadow mentions someone called the Storyteller, Alix hesitantly decides to learn more.

They say the Storyteller lives in a massive library full of books that tell every being’s life story. He can read these books, rewrite them and change anything he wants, even if it’s already happened. That’s the power Alix wants, the power to bring his murdered family back and he’s determined to make the Storyteller do it.

He just has to decide if working with the very creatures he’s supposed to kill is worth it.

Review, Interview and Giveaway: Off-World by Jonah Bergan (Possible Spoilers)

Blurb:
What really brought Taine to that backwater little world? Taine’s a hunter. He’s a red-skinned, black-eyed Lowman by nature, and a hunter by trade. Some hunters work in flesh, others in secrets, and some few work to set right what’s been set wrong. It’s a big galaxy and there’s always plenty of work for a hunter like Taine, so you got to wonder, what with all that at his feet, what really brought Taine to that backwater little world?

Off-World is a M/M science fiction action/adventure set in F/M dominated space. The story takes place in an arm of the galaxy where slavery (sexual and otherwise) is legal and commonplace. Strictly speaking, it is not a BDSM novel in that consent is not a matter of concern for the characters, but those with an interest in BDSM should enjoy the story. Due to explicit content, Off-World is not recommended to readers under eighteen years of age.
