My rating:

Gargoyle Jude is preparing for his first mission as part of G-Force, Earth’s space fleet.

After encountering some hostile visitors shortly after his arrival, Jude crashes his ship. Faced with a long trek across a featureless desert, Jude has little choice but to accept the help of Kirby, a shifter whose Fennec Fox animal side is able to navigate the shifting sands and get Jude back to the abandoned human settlement where he hopes to find supplies to fix his ship.

The Hunt for Red Fluffy by Angel Martinez

My rating:

When a stray hellcat - a creature only a demon can posses - appears on the station where the Brimstone has stopped, it’s obvious to just about everyone except Shax that it’s a trap, but he takes possession of the beast anyway. Thus begins a quite literal cat and mouse game as the demon prince and his crew try to outrun and outmaneuver the criminal gang out to capture them.

My rating:

Human Davies is an ether-drive navigator, one of the most elite jobs among the space-faring worlds. He can decide who he works for and ether-drive ships can’t leave port without him. Davies is an orphan, with the proverbial girl-in-every-port, although in his case, he prefers men, or the equivalent of whatever species sparks his interest. He rarely hooks up with the same people for long, and he thinks he prefers it that way.

Review - Jailmates by Lesli Richardson

My rating:

Warning: This is a book that’s hard to review and discuss all the interesting points it raises without giving away a little of the plot. Hopefully it’s no more than you could infer from the blurbs, but consider yourself warned. Simon is just a few days away from finishing up his five year stint in the military. He joined up to provide money to his single mother and younger sister, so he’ll need to find some other work eventually, but for now he’s just missing his family and looking forward to spending time with them.
