    Great Read!

    The visual in the begining of the book was sad and descriptive. To see how things were going downhill fast for earth by mother nature, depressing really but good. I laughed when the heroine found her hero who was clueless about her. That was a neat take on things. Loved the progression between the two even though it was a bit quick. Still great watching him learn and her as well. Just one thing... it is SMELLED not SMELT!! Lol she SMELLED good... I guess she smelled and looked so good she could melt iron she was so hot, I dont know...maybe thats why he kept SMELTING her LOL but it really should be SMELLED. :) definitely NOT a reason not to read this book, its great! Its actually funny now. Smelt. HE was smelty! Lol

    New World

    I can honestly say I was a little hesitant when I first read the description of the book, but now I am so happy I purchased it. The author was able to create a new world and species that are both fascinating and original. The way the story starts so emotional and descriptive about the destruction of earth and the actions of the human race. Then it segways into the "New World" and introduced a new species that has never seen a female before and the story becomes lighthearted and very entertaining. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    Shield is the first book in the New World Series. Mother Nature

    Shield is the first book in the New World Series.

    Mother Nature has now taken over Earth. Parts of the world are under water, meteors are dropping and causing fires to destroy vegetation, and a few of the states are no longer connected and fell like Atlantis.

    Grace has survived a mudslide and flood that killed her family and community she was living in since disaster hit Earth. Her family didn't have the money to guarantee spots on shuttles taken humans to Ulsy, the new planet able to support human lives. When she was able to go they required her parents to stay behind because they were no longer of child bearing years. Now they have crash landed on Dargon and the occupants of Dargon are curious.

    Rask is a Castian warrior who hasn't seen female in 400+ years. They have an armor that protects them and makes them pretty much immune to any kind of weapon. When Rask comes across Grace his must comes upon him and they now have to figure out how to survive Tonan attacks and help figure out if Ulsy was a trick developed by Tonan's to get human slaves.

    I have to say, this book did seem to go kind of fast once the two main characters meet, but for a first in series it is an excellent start!

    While I've read other books with the same theme as SHIELD that were better written, it was nonetheless very good and entertaining.  I think the biggest flaw is that one of the two main characters (Rask) is not as well developed as I would like to see him.  I can understand this, however, since creating a culture from scratch yet making it relate-able to the reader can, and is, a difficult thing to do.

    Fun Series

    If you like si-fi with some steamy sex you'll like this series.
    I have read all that are out. C.L Scholey did a great job with this one.
