Review- Vinakti Duet- Nan Klee

 I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

32733534

 Vinakti Duet by Nan Klee
Released: October 18th, 2016
Pages: 304
 Buy It: Amazon

Vinakti is a Sanskrit word for “he who is set apart”. Vinakti Duet is a science fiction romance set on a desert planet where an orphaned half-breed, now successful business woman of rare paranormal talents, must confront her destiny with the handsome and equally talented off-worlder who may be responsible for her father’s death. 

Review:
Vinakti Duet has a interesting plot.   Quite a bit of the book was exciting and fast paced but there was also a good balance with some slower paced parts. There was a number of twists that I did not see coming and ended going in different direction.

The Writing style was good and I really liked the world building.  This gave me a pretty good idea of what this world was like.  The first part of the book, jumped around to different people and places which left me feeling a little lost to what was happening and how everything was connected.  Eventually everything settled down and I was able to piece together all the parts.

The book was filled with some interesting characters like Jenna.  Jenna was one of my favourites but I didn't really like when she was with Dardin.  Dardin annoyed me for a while, though towards the end I was coming around to him.  

Overall I enjoyed of this book.  It was quite exciting, had a couple of twists.  Some of the characters were great.  So in the end I gave it a 3/5.
