Okay, first off, this was so much better than her Mageverse series so I'm thinking Knight is at her best when writing futuristic stories.
I haven't read Jane's Warlord, which I understand is a prequel of sorts to this series, so I came into this blind. The book stands alone beautifully, but it leaves you wanting more of this world. In fact, Warlord, which includes Jane's Warlord and Warfem, is on my to buy list!
Fabulous world-building! The Vardon (good guys) society was well-created, with just enough detail. Then we see into the Xer (bad guys) culture, where she paid equal attention to detail. She didn't depend on any one device too much.
Great characterization including the secondary ones, most of which were described in detail without breaking stride. Jessica and Galar fell for each other hard, but I could see why so it was believable. Jessica was alone in a strange world where Galar became her rock. Galar finds Jessica so different from the women of his time and her emotional honesty was just what the doctor ordered. Guess that all adds up to equal hot sex. Who knew?!
My big disappoint was the moment the spy was revealed. The first time you get inside the traitor's head, there's no indication of who he was. I anticipated being strung along for a while, kept guessing, but that tension wasn't to be. If you make a point of not telling me the first time, I expect to find out in the heat of the moment.
I think this has to be one of the best organized books I've read in a long time. I can't wait to read more from this world -- Guardian is next up in this series -- a trilogy.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Can't wait for the next one. Though it was quite serious, there were humorous parts that made me smile. I really liked the heroine and hero, but my favorite character only showed up once and was very funny - Flybot. If you like futuristic or time-travel, you'll like this book.
This one is very sci-fi. More than I usually enjoy but I really liked both Galar and Jessica. (The time traveling warrior and the painter). Jessica is just a good-ole Southern girl who finds herself dropped in another time period and the target of an assassin. Galar saves her life and she falls hard.
There are many trials and tribulations for both of them - both together and separately. A wonderful start to the Time Hunters series - kinda hard to follow and rather confusing at first but it settles quickly into a great romance.
Angela Knight tells all in her sexually charged futuristic time cop series stories. I collect them all, and fold the corners to re-read the steamy pages! With so many characters I have to re-read to keep them all straight.
Loved this book! I read Jane's Warlord first and like it, so I decided to check out the rest. I'm glad I did. I just received the next book in the trilogy and can't wait to start it!
