About the Author

I live in Australia with two giant, fluffy cats. I try to write whenever I can, reasoning that eating and sleeping are luxuries that can be ignored.

Barely two stars for this one. Discovering events that transform the "plain" and "normal" administrative clerk into a galactic adventurer is a typical sci-fi story concept which might have kept interest if cut to a tight 200 pages or less. Instead, with the subtlety of a sledge hammer, the reader is repeatedly told that these kinds of things don't happen to " Plain Jane", and that Lucas Stone is just misunderstood by his fan club and the media circus, but still thinks she's cute. More focus on character development, exposition, better descriptives, tighter action driving the relationships, and resolution of at least one conflict is needed. At the end of 569 pages the reader still doesn't have enough invested in either main character to bother reading the sequel or care how this ends. Don't waste time on this one. Read this author's Betwixt novels instead.

I read til the end, altho I almost quit the book several times, which stopped in an exciting part and is continued in Bk #2. I won't be buying it. There's too much repeating of the same thing as if the author thought we might have forgotten and I didn't care for the way it ended. I don't mind books being continued but not ending in the middle of something that should be finished. I know it was to get me to pay for the next book but it turned me off. And it really needs editing.

I should have paid attention to the reviews. This could have been a good tale if the author cut all the repeated "plain" and "normal" stuff. It really bogged down the story. You could actually skip the first 3 or 4 chapters and have no problem following the story. The story didn't resolve anything. Just added more and more questions. The cliffhanger ending was cliche. I won't be bothering with book 2.

This is the worst SciFi book I've ever read. Sorry Odette. I really wanted to like it but the repetition is completely irritating. I was skipping whole sections to get on to with the story. This book could have been reduced by 2/3 if all the repetition were eliminated. I couldn't have said it better than the Anonymous post titled "Endless repetition and no resolution". I can't even bother with the second book. Yech!

The plot line and idea is good, but the repetition of the same thoughts over and over again get tiresome. I ended up reading about 1/3rd of the book, the rest I just skipped over.

It was good and horrible but i cant say it was great could have been better didnt really like the romance it was mostly pretty weird if you ask me. I got tired of the word plane jane over and over again okay we get it horrible story i was expecting a lot better.

There is a lot of repetition. By the 10th time we get it that Jane is or is made to seem boring and plain. By the 10th time Lucas is dashing but hates to be celebrated. By the 10th time we know there is a mystery. Could have been good but by the end of the book I got nothing but hints. Too much work for no rewards.

It was okay, but horribly repetitive and definetly needed more work before putting it out to public. I like this writer, but this did not help her out any.

It had potential, it just kept repeating.
