    Fun book to read

    I love Linnea Sinclair and I liked this book. Just reread it for the 2nd or 3rd time and found it just as entertaining as the first.

    I Also Recommend:

    A Well-Crafted Universe, But ...

    there are also quite a few plot elements which are never fully addressed (why doesn't Gillaine call home? what happens to the characters who disappear before the end of thebook? and so on). The characters were a lot of fun, but Sinclair drops the reader a little *too* abruptly in media res. A prologue would have helped tremendously. The religious elements were great, as they are so rare in science fiction, and added a lot to this fictional universe.

    Accidental Goddess

    I'm not a fantasy reader, as it just doesn't do much for me. However, An Accidental Goddess put just the right combination of science an magic together, leaving behind the middle ages clones of culture. This was a very likable read with very likable characters. The parrots were great. I'm off to try some more of this author's books.

    BRAVA!

    Captain Gillaine Davré regained consciousness in a strange sick bay. The last thing she could recall was having combat with the Fav'lhir in Riftspace. She soon learned that she and her sentient crystal-ship named Simon had been catapulted forward in time 342 years. After absorbing that shocking blow more quickly follow. History believed Gillie had died, sacrificing herself, in that battle to save the Khalaran race. She had been immortalized as the Goddess Kiasidira! ................... Admiral Rynan 'Mack' Makarian commanded the space station Cirrus One and was dead of the critical Rim Gate Project. He soon realized Gillie was his destiny, his soulmate. He knew Gillie kept many secrets, by omissions, from everyone and that miracles often happened whenever she was around, but he was positive she would reveal all sooner or later. .................... Gillie kept her true identity and Raheiran abilities a close secret. To reveal the truth would destroy the Khalaran society that had already raised generations on her little aphorisms. But when the Fav'lhir attack, after being silent over 300 years, Gillie must find a way to save the Khalaran race all over again! There was simply not enough bottles of Devil's Breath in the station's bars to help her get through it all! ................ ***** Simon is short for 'Sentient Integrated MObile Nanoessence'. Via telepathy, one of several abilities she has, Gillie and Simon communicate. As you can see, most of this novel is Sci-Fi. However, the author makes the story more intriguing by adding several touches of Fantasy elements such as a mageline sorceress and a touch of spacestation romance. It all blends together to make an awesome drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat and holding your breath! BRAVA! *****

    fast-paced science fiction thriller

    When Raheiran Captain Gillaine Davré regains consciousness in a sick bay she knows that is not a new occurrence. However, her Sentient Integrated Mobile Nanoessence space ship, Simon, informs her that three hundred forty-two years and sixteen hours have passed since her last conscious memory of fighting the Fav'lhir. Another shocker surfaces when she learns everyone believes she sacrificed herself to save the Khalarans from certain defeat at the hands of the Fav'lhir and honored for her sacrifice by naming her the Goddess Kiasidira. Drinking Devil's Breath does not make anything easier for her as she realizes she must hide who she is because society has constructed key elements focused on the Goddess Kiasidira. --- Cirrus One Space Station Commander Admiral Rynan ¿Mack¿ Makarian knows that his ¿guest¿ Gillaine hides secrets from him. He also realizes that Gillaine, who is at best a smuggler and at worst working for the enemy, is his soulmate that he has waited to love for over four decades. Mack assumes she feels the same way and expects her to reveal the truth eventually, hopefully sooner than later. Everything comes to a head between them when the Fav'lhir attacks for the first time in three hundred plus years. --- Outer space fans will treasure this fast-paced science fiction thriller that starts with a bewildered heroine struggling with the exaggeration of her death. From that opening mental chat with Simon, fans are hooked to accompany Gillie on her efforts to initially buy time for repairs to Simon but ultimately lead the fight. Mack adds a fine supporting romantic subplot that provides additional tension to the star who feels so much stress that drinking Devil¿s Breath only gives her headaches. Readers will agree that this is a FINDERS KEEPERS tale. --- Harriet Klausner
