Review - Driven to The Edge by L.M. Somerton
Joe and Olly have been living their happily-ever-after for a couple of years. Joe would like nothing more than to keep his sub close, but Olly is good at his job as a nurse at a nearby military hospital. What starts as a typical day of getting some new patients settled turns into a series of traumatic events for Olly and all the men in his life. Although most of the books in the Tales From The Edge series are more or less standalone, this story is a sequel to the first two books, so you really need to have read the first book, Reaching the Edge, and the second, Living on the Edge, before this one to get a complete understanding of the relationship Joe and Olly have.

Review - The Alien Infiltrator by Eryn Ivers
Sebastian is the nearly perfect spy. He's a torvar, a symbiotic (or parasitic, according to some) worm-like creature that can take over humanoid bodies. He can infiltrate the enemy and wreak havoc. This makes him one of the resistance's most potent weapons. That doesn't seem to prevent some of the fighters from hating Sebastian for what he is, and that apparently includes their leader, Leon Hess. Leon doesn't really hate Sebastian.
