Review - A Cook's Tale by J. Alan Veerkamp

My rating:

Erron is really down on his luck. His boyfriend broke up with him to marry a woman, got him fired from the restaurant where they both worked, and had him evicted from his apartment. He's running out of money and really needs a new job. Fortunately, the Santa Claus is advertising for a new cook, and not only does it sound like a good ship, his old father figure, Gamin, is the chef he'd be working for.

Review - Raphael's Rescue by C.J. Dragon

My rating:

Raphael is a child of the Mars colony, the main outpost for humanity since Earth is no longer habitable. He is also a powerful empath, so while he loves his extended family, he sometimes needs time alone to keep their thoughts from overwhelming him. That's easily accomplished by taking his small scout ship Agatha out to look for minerals in the asteroid belt. It's on one of these trips that he encounters a Chi'NoSa ship that accidentally damages Agatha.

My rating:

Time to catch up on the latest adventures of Lem, her dog Spock, and the rest of the crew of the starship Teapot. This time it's Lem's best friend, Bexley, who needs help, well, more help than usual. One of Bexley's parents is pregnant, but they've discovered that the unborn child exhibits a common birth ‘defect’ among Bexley's species: It will have wings. The law of Bexley's home world requires the wings to be removed at birth, but her parents are dead set against what they see as an unnecessary ‘mutilation.

Review - Regi's Huuman by Lyn Gala

My rating:

Regi exiled himself from the empire where he was raised to join the Coalition, where he is the security chief on board a ship patrolling a relatively empty section of Coalition space. It's usually an uneventful job, but as our story opens, the ship has been disabled and is drifting toward a black hole. The only hope appears to be a pirate ship hiding on the edge of the event horizon.

My rating:

When the nightmares are especially terrible, Liam turns to his old friend and commanding officer, Duncan.

Review - Dearly Despised by Alessandra Hazard

My rating:

Samir was raised to take the throne after his ‘cousins’ were presumably killed by rebels. But the eldest prince, Warrehn, wasn't killed by the rebels; he was protected by them. The real villain was Samir's mother, who it seems will stop at nothing to see Warrehn dead and her son on the throne. When Warrehn reappears to claim his birthright, he knows but can't prove that Samir's mother was responsible for the death of his parents.
