Overview

One hundred and fifty years ago, Warrior Jovan of the Six Saviors realized he had a gift: the ability to feel emotions through touch. Over the years, the gift has intensified allowing him to hear others thoughts, and this uncontrolled skill has forced him to keep his distance from both humans and those of his race. He fears the impact on his sanity if he doesn't.

Liberty, an SR44 female has come to Earth by a set of circumstances beyond her control. Born into a life of servitude on SR44, she is alone, afraid, and stumbling her way through learning the customs and language of her new home on Earth. When Jovan meets Liberty, it becomes clear that they are of the same species, and Jovan takes Liberty under his wing, despite his commitment to himself to limit interaction with others.

As Liberty reveals the reasons for her coming to Earth, it becomes apparent that the Six Saviors are in danger, not only from the FBI, but also from those who have journeyed to Earth with Liberty, and they are seeking revenge. Jovan must quickly learn to control his gift, and Liberty is the only one who can help him. As they deal with danger from all sides, Jovan and Liberty must find a way to compromise on the lives they desire, or they will be forced to go their separate ways.

    Carly pens "Destiny's Shift" in a plot that is fascina

    Carly pens "Destiny's Shift" in a plot that is fascinating and well written. Her characters are extremely interesting. likable and filled with emotions,  they make it hard to put the book down. A great addition to the 'Six Saviors Series' and I look forward to the next book.  I suggest reading the series in order so you don't miss out on anything.

    Well, I've gotten hooked on the Six Saviors series, and this was a nice continuation of the storyline about six aliens that come to our planet to find the Colonists, the most evil of their race. One thing I would like to note is this: whoever is proofreading these books before publication needs to be fired! The mistakes in grammar get very annoying!

    Review I was all "yippee," when I was offered a chance

    Review
    I was all "yippee," when I was offered a chance to read and review Destiny's Shift by Carly Fall. I'm a Science Fiction and Paranormal kind of gal, so I always get a wee bit excited when given the opportunity to try a new book in those genres. Destiny's Shift was, in fact, a really good read. I was hesitant at first, noting that this was the fifth book of a six book series. The Series is called the Six Savior, and the reading order can be found on her blog. But I was assured that it was a standalone book.




    Well, this is where one of my pet peeves about series comes in. I really hate to start something from the middle in any series, standalone or not. I just feel completely detached from the characters and the story line when I read out of order. I feel lost and confused. But, I gave it a go, and I'm really glad I did.




    Having read the synopsis above I don't really want to reveal too much of the story and give away any spoilers. However, I will comment on my impression of the storyline and the endearing qualities of the leading characters.




    Remember in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home where they go back in time to the year 1986? They had to return because this big, black shaped water heater was cruising along in space in the year 2286 threatening to destroy the Earth by disabling global power and blocking out the sun along with it. So the crew comes back, and they find themselves at a loss, desperate to fit in so they can steal George and Gracie. The water heater only knows how to speak in whale for all you non-trekkers out there. The crew walks around not knowing how to act or how to survive.




    Well, reading this book gave me the same feeling I had when I first saw that movie.




    Liberty is as cute as a button. Despite her innocence in all that is Earth related and the tragic circumstances befalling her, she remains buoyant and optimistic. Liberty confesses her reasons for coming to Earth to the Six Saviors, and like a child, entrusts them wholeheartedly to fix all of her problems. Jovan first finds her surviving on tacos and waitressing at a strip club dressed in a French maid's outfit and living with a drug addict who thinks she's an angel. She's elated when Jovan introduces her to macaroni and cheese, which quickly becomes her favorite gourmet dinner.




    It was excerpts like these that quickly turned me onto the book.




    It was funny, straightforward, and innocent, just like Liberty. A servant in her home world, the idea of equality was foreign to her, and it took time for Liberty to get used to this concept. Jovan, dominant and alpha to her submissive nature, helps her to adjust. Although there is a strong attraction, Jovan is hesitant to start a relationship, being the Lone Wolf that he is. Add to the fact Liberty just arrived on Earth, and he feels that she is much too innocent to even be thinking of her in a sexual nature. But Liberty is not a child, nor is she a nun. As things become dangerous and chaotic (while there are threats surrounding the Six Saviors and their mates), Liberty can't help but ask what The Sex is. She feels sick every time she is around Jovan and wonders if this attraction is what is ailing her.




    This was an enjoyable read, and I am thankful for having the opportunity of reviewing it. The book was provided by the author for an honest review. This review is also located here under Literati Literature Lovers where I blog

    I was asked to review this book, really knowing little to nothin

    I was asked to review this book, really knowing little to nothing of the series, yet I was able to grasp the current storyline without difficulty, and it did increase my interest in reading the other stories.  I do think, however, that I would have liked to know the other saviors as well as I came to know Jovan in this series. 




    Jovan is beautifully developed, his particular talent is empathy, which has him feeling all the joys and pains of those he encounters.  Not a surprise to find him more comfortable living alone and isolated than thrust into the maelstrom of emotional pain that others bring.  There is a core of determination and honesty in Jovan that is just attractive.  




    Liberty is an intriguing character, innocent yet very strong and possessed of a willingness to share and help Jovan control his gifts, their relationship is quite interesting to watch. As they got closer, their story and relationship went to steam-powered, and I appreciate the subtle change in his attitude toward ‘partnership’ that Jovan was able to accept and start to integrate into his personality now that he has discovered the pleasant side of contact with others from being with Liberty. 




    And there is danger aplenty, with the FBI not particularly happy about the existence of aliens on the planet – which could threaten the protection that the saviors provide humans.  Additionally, there are other SR-44 natives who have less than honorable intentions, and we all know that governments are not always able to determine good from bad when all they hear is alien. 




    There are some heartbreaking moments, even to a reader not familiar with the entire story: but for the most part, this was enjoyable and fun to read with only a few references leaving me puzzled.  I do think that it would be best to read all of the books in order – but I’m certainly intrigued enough to add the others in this series to my tbr pleasure pile.  




    I received an eBook from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
