Review - Davo by N.R. Walker

My rating:

When academic researcher Fergus lands in a remote mining camp in the far reaches of Western Australia, he's expecting a change of scenery, but he's totally unprepared for the extreme conditions of the desert, as well as the quirky collection of permanent residents that call the town home. The biggest surprise of all is Davo. The muscular mechanical supervisor has a sunny disposition with a totally disarming smile, and likes to wear skirts.

Review - Pieces of Us by N.R. Walker

My rating:

Kindly note: This book starts directly after the ending of the second, and picks up with the same characters right where they left off. If you haven't read the first two installments of this series, be prepared for spoilers. Justin continues to recover from the horrific traffic accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury as well as a broken arm and leg. There are good days, when more of Justin's personality emerges from the mist surrounding his cognitive capabilities, but there are also bad days, when the stress of an unwelcome visitor sends him back into an unresponsive fog.

Review - Lacuna by N.R. Walker

My rating:

For over a thousand years, the four kingdoms have lived in peace, under the guidance of a central council of elders. Each kingdom is ruled by someone marked with the symbol of their respective kingdoms. The North, a land of snow covered mountains, is ruled by Crow, while the king of the West wetlands is Tancho. Both are 25 years old, and destined to meet, along with the rulers of the other two kingdoms, for the first time at a festival celebrating a once-in-one-thousand-years eclipse.

Review - Pieces of Me by N.R. Walker

My rating:

Kindly note: This sequel starts directly after the ending of the first book, and picks up with the same characters right where they left off. If you haven’t read the first installment of this series, be prepared for spoilers. When last we left our two lovers, Justin had just had a sort of breakthrough. He still has no memory of Dallas, but the meaning of the dreams his subconscious has been giving him is finally clear: Dallas really is where he is supposed to be.

Review - Tallowwood by N.R. Walker

My rating:

August Shaw works cold cases in a state police office just outside of Sydney. He works alone and that’s the way he wants it. August likes the idea of bringing closure to families that have lost someone. Only, there’s one case he hasn’t been able to crack: a string of murders of gay men going back nearly a decade. The deaths have mostly been ruled suicides, but they have too much in common for that to be the case, but August’s superiors refuse to see it and think he’s too emotionally involved.

Review - S.I.R. by N.R. Walker

Founded over 400 years ago, the Sanctus Infinitus Redemptio has grown rich and powerful yet still remains secretive and strictly devoted to its founding principles that values submission and the responsibilities of dominants above all else. So, when one of the three grand masters, Dalton, notices signs that Hunter has been whipped, in direct violation of his hard limit, he wastes no time in recalling Hunter and his Dom, who is subjected to “retraining”.

Review - Evolved by N.R. Walker

My rating:

Lloyd’s ex planted the seed when he told him only a robot could satisfy his need for order, quite and intellect. The seed grows and soon Lloyd is serious considering the purchase of an android. It is the year 2068 after all, and “fully functional” androids or gynoids are readily available, for those than can afford them. It seems to be the only way Lloyd can have a relationship with someone he can stand to be around, and what could go wrong?

Review - Imagines by N.R. Walker

My rating:

This sequel to Imago picks up a few months after the first book ends. Jack and Lawson are in a committed relationship, although still maintaining separate homes because Lawson thinks it’s “too soon” for them to live together. An invitation to Cairns for Lawson to help save an endangered species of butterfly may be a chance for the two to spend more time together. Will vacationing as a couple make or break them?

Review - Imago by N.R. Walker

My rating:

Lawson is a lepidopterist from Melbourne, on his way to Tasmania to look for a rumored new species of butterfly. Lawson is the very definition of nerd: Highly intelligent, skinny, preppy dress sense, and questionable social skills. Big outdoorsy Jack is on the flight with Lawson. He is returning to his home in Tasmania, where he’s a park ranger, of the area where Lawson is set to look for his butterfly.
