Review- DreaganStar- Nan Klee

DreaganStar by Nan Klee
Released: July 22, 2016
Pages: 280
Buy It: Amazon

Samantha Alexander is the Senior Psychologist of the five Dreagan Corporation lunar colonies. She is given the task of proving Jonathan Dreagan, the founder, the brilliant scientist and Chairman of the Board to be insane. It would be an easy task but for the fact that Dreagan is the originator of all of the technology around her, still a brilliant scientist, and the man she is rapidly falling in love with. 

This is the debut novel by an exciting new science fiction author and the introduction to the fascinating universe traversed by DreaganStar. 

I was excited for the plot of the book.  It sounded very interesting.  It has some fantastic moments but at times I felt it moving too slowly.  The book took some surprising turns that left me a little shocked.  It also has good world building.

At times,  it was a bit confusing with all the different characters.  It took a little while to know who they were talking about.  In the ended I was able to find out who they were talking about.  It also annoyed me a little how they kept saying AshenGrey.  As Samantha Alexander and Johnathan Dreagan got to know each other they it was said too much.

I thought Samantha and Dreagan had a good connection.  Definitely liked when they were together.

Still it was thoroughly entertaining,  and thought it was quite good.  I ended up giving this book 3/5.

(Review) New Dusk- Liberty Gilmore

New Dusk by Liberty Gilmore
Released: May 3, 2016
Pages: 105
Buy it: Amazon

Alf is roaring. Most people would mistake this for anger, but they don’t spend as much time around Demons as I do…

Cadence Hart has just six months on the job left. But six months might as well be a lifetime in the dangerous field of Deportations. Armed with a flaming sword and backed by Alf, her Demon partner, she’s the thin blue line between the Souls escaped from Hell and the living residents of the city.

Missing persons cases aren’t her usual line of work, but a young woman has disappeared in strange circumstances and Cadence is pulled off her regular duties to investigate. The girl’s parents think she’s possessed. Which is impossible. Only, from what evidence there is - it looks an awful lot like she’s possessed.

To solve the case, she’ll need the help of Matthew, a Soul expert. Matthew gained his expertise first hand – he’s been dead since before Cadence was born. But when their investigation unearths links to the devil-worshipping cult, New Dusk, they begin to realise that the case might be more than even they can handle.

New Dawn is a fun, fast paced book, that I could not put down. It had great writing, and a interesting plot.  It has a great balance between action and mystery as well supernatural elements.  The idea that souls have escaped hell to cause havoc was great.

Cadence is strong, sarcastic and awkward main character.  Determined on returning the souls to hell, teams up with soul Matthew.  While they shouldn't work well together,  they end up making a amazing team. The two balance each other out and have the talents needed to discover what happened with the missing girls.

It took an unexpected turn, and end up finishing with a great ending.  While it left me with a few questions, it seemed to resolve the immediate issue but leaves enough to get me excited for the rest of the series.  Overall it is a  to an amazing start to this series, and I am excited to read the next book if this series.

In the end I gave this book 4.5/5.
