This series truly leaves you looking for the next episode. Well written. Jul 17, Frances Law rated it it was amazing. Fast and furious! That's all that anyone needs to say. This, the third book in the Hayden War, is by far the best to date.

The action is fast and the characters have become old friends. Evan Currie has certainly come of age! Excellent, can't wait for the next book. Oct 09, John Habgood rated it it was amazing. Jan 01, John Mchale rated it it was amazing. Much better than the last as it had less techno babble and more story. A story that kept moving and brought you with it. An ending that means more yo come May 10, Patrick Johnson rated it did not like it.
Awful Kindles update destroyed the synch with Audible making reading the book virtually impossible.

Bound to Gods by Eva Chase (Their Dark Valkyrie #2)
Humanity is a clever and crafty race, who has unfortunately jumped into the wrong galactic star-system. All seems bleak and dismal facing a formidable enemy that is technologically superior and has an empire that spans eons of light-years across; but luckily for humanity, there is one ace in the hole, Master Sergeant Sorilla! This installment was my most favorite yet.
The creative action began on the very first page and didn't stop until the very last. Sorilla is the most fiercely b Simply Superb! Sorilla is the most fiercely battle-skilled heroine I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. I was continually excited and awed by the tactics displayed during battle, be it planet-side or in the vacuum of space. I was taken on a high-adventure ride that just kept going and going; I loved this book so much I could not put it down.
Not one part of the story was cheesy but instead, takes you back to basics of motherfrakking ass-kicking My respect for this series just exploded a notch up. Just when I thought I've read it all, this author delivered a splendid SciFi-action novel that flowed well from one death defying mission to the next. I highly recommend this book to fellow SF readers and I can't for the next book The Valhalla Call due out in ; which will be a bitter sweet release, since it's the last book in the series.
To fellow dark urban fantasy readers who are looking for a good space opera but do not want to end up with a space romance, I also recommend this series to you. Sep 05, Per Gunnar rated it it was amazing Shelves: 2-military , 1-science-fiction. The fleet action also winds up with the alien alliance sending a real flotilla to expulse these bothersome and primitive humans from the Hayden system. I liked the little surprise at the end which really makes me want to read the next one in the series. It is also said to be the conclusion of the series. This is an extremely minor complaint though.
Aug 08, John rated it it was amazing. The war in the Hayden System continues. Information about the FTL system explains why the system is so important. Task Force Valkryrie starts out doing a run on an Alliance world and prove that they are a force to be dealt with, by using Operator teams and some improvised technology.

Our favorite Operator Sorilla, is also determined to end the Alliance special forces occupation in the jungles of Hayden. It is non stop action from when she heads down the tether to her encounters with the aliens.

The only thing more exciting is the battle raging above the planet and throughout the Hayden system! The only thing that bugged me was the surprise at the end. There should have been more communications with Earth and some type of info should have made it to the Hayden earlier. I would want to give my Admirals as much Intel as is reasonably possible to help them deal with the war front.
I will keep quiet about other things so as not to give away any spoilers. There are some editing issues but not so much to ruin the story. I am "patiently" waiting for the fourth book. Mar 15, Amber rated it it was amazing Shelves: diverse-characters , science-fiction , military-sci-fi. This military sci fi series once again leaves an impressive mark! Great writing, a great plot and great action all come together flawlessly. In addition to Sorilla Aida being her usual awesome, kick butt, insane stunt pulling self we once again see more from the aliens point of view.
It was great to see how the alien races think and view the humans as well as more of how their space tactics work. It seems that one Alliance race has started a war and now some of the others are being dragged along This military sci fi series once again leaves an impressive mark! It seems that one Alliance race has started a war and now some of the others are being dragged along to try and clean thugs up. Unfortunately for them things are not that easy. Both sides have tricks up their sleeves and both come away with some nasty wounds. The book closes with both sides calling or ready to call in bigger fleets.
A seriously huge battle is obviously coming and I have no doubt that it's going to be a crazy one. Sorilla continues to be a fantastic character. Wherever she goes explosions are bound to follow. She is a strong military woman in every sense and a great character to follow but even she has her limits and worries which we see a glimpse of in this book.
I love the fact that there are so many great women in this book all of them very well written and developed. Once again this was a fantastic book and another wonderful entry in the series.
Oct 31, Vadim rated it it was ok. The series as a whole would get 3. Too bad we can't rate on a slider and have to pick an integer number. However I can't, in good conscience, give books 3 and 4 a high rating. There are just so many typos and grammatical errors that it really detracts from the reading experience. I could also never really follow any of the space battles.
Number of ships on each side is rarely mentioned and I just can't wrap my head around the physics of it, where it takes a couple of hours to tra The series as a whole would get 3. Number of ships on each side is rarely mentioned and I just can't wrap my head around the physics of it, where it takes a couple of hours to traverse the whole solar system in one battle, but takes days to do it another time.
Ships almost never try preemptive evading tactics agains lasers and projectiles even though those are fired with light minutes between ships. Humans also seem to discard their old weapons as soon as something new is available to them, even though the old weapons were somewhat effective and the new ones are only slightly better.
I kept reading though because the story really pulled me in despite slight logical inconsistencies. Dec 10, Jeff Juszczak rated it liked it. My normally stellar opinion of Evan Currie's books was skewed by there just not being enough in this book. Available NOW! The narrators did a fantastic job. Cacek and Laura J.

Wooldridge Red Light by Gregory L.
My other Z. There are a few different points that show up over and over again, whether in reviews of my books or in emails from readers or, occasionally, direct messages on Twitter or Facebook , and it seems only fair that I just come right out and address them.
In my experience, people in distress curse. People ragging on their friends curse. Cursing and any other word choice in dialogue tells you something about the character. It fits the characters and their intentions in the moment. This is in reference to the big reveal at the end of Changes, so this is your last spoiler warning.
I would say that the mastermind behind the killings in Changes is pretty far removed from being a good Christian. And lastly, for now anyway, is a series of related questions regarding both Jianghu and my short story collection, Unknown Pleasures. When I first started writing, waaaaaay back in school, I did what a lot of writers did.
I modeled my work on other books I was reading, other writers I loved. I wrote really dumb horror stories about really dumb monsters who tormented really dumb people, and there was really nothing scary about any of it. Then I had a long break from writing when a girl I was dating told me to give up that unrealistic stuff and just get a job. When I started writing again, years later this time after marrying a woman who supported my writing , I had a very young daughter. Now I actually knew what it was to be afraid. Because, as every new parent knows, the world you thought you knew suddenly shows its teeth.
Everything is dangerous to your kid, and every stranger is a potential pervert or murderer…or both. So a lot of the short stuff that I wrote back then was about bad stuff happening to kids. It was, and is, something that weighs heavily on me. And writing about that stuff was my way of trying to tame that fear.
When my daughter was about five, we moved out into the country.

Waaay out in the middle of nowhere. A few years later, we had another child. When I started writing Jianghu I wanted it to be a way for Randall to have some closure. I wanted him to find her killer. Then I started doing research. All the horrible stuff in the book? I spent months researching that stuff, and it really affected me.

One of the things I found in my research was a website that lets you see if there are any registered sex offenders in your area. When I found that site, I put in our old address first, just for fun, just to feel good about our decision to abandon civilization for country life. If I remember correctly I think there were about five registered sex offenders in our old neighborhood.
So, yeah. The process of writing that book was not fun. It was on the second and third passes that I was able to insert in some of the usual Randall-style humor, and to inject some happiness into the third act… the first draft of the book was utterly miserable. I truly do. Got a problem? Punch it in the face. No consequences. I get that. I love cool fights. I love action scenes. Child Killers. Randall was a guy who was becoming a little too comfortable killing anybody who happened to get in his way, and I wanted Beatrix to be a kind of funhouse mirror that would show him exactly where he was headed if he stayed on that path.
I really appreciate it. I hope to have some other really cool news this week, including some updates on other projects. Aaaaand I left you all on something of a cliffhanger, for which I am very sorry. The game offers 12 bet levels for each currency. Each bet is coins.
