Even the smallest degree of hope can spark love.

Against her wealthy father's demands, and the usual blockades of a male dominated profession, Kylie Sanderson proves worthy of her position as lead investigator of planet Andan's Scientific and Investigative Research Taskforce. Someone is killing Andan's women in an attempt to mutate them into reptiles. Kylie makes it her mission to discover who's behind the murders and prevent more grotesque deaths.

Shapeshifting lizard Griff comes to Andan to stop his brethren from mutating other planet's women into mindless breeding stock. Overcoming Kylie's suspicious and defensive nature proves difficult, but he must in order to help the SIRT team thwart his planet's scientists.

When Kylie is abducted and becomes the first human to survive the transformation, it's up to Griff to rescue her so SIRT can restore her human form. On the run and desperate to unravel the mysteries of Kylie's past to solve the crimes of their present, can she and Griff forge a future for themselves?

While reading this book, I was thinking this would be perfect for a movie! Lyndi’s descriptions of her characters and places are SO REALISTIC you can imagine yourself next to SIRT Agent Kylie Sanderson while she solves her cases and fall in love with her Griff, who is a good reptile alien who has only good intentions for Kylie and humankind. She doesn’t let her rich daddy get in her way to live the life she wants and needs. You can tell our author did her research of reptiles to bring forth such an attention-grabbing storyline. I forced myself to go slow to savor this book, it was that good! I highly recommend this story – see for yourself how great it is!

The women of planet Andan are turning up mutilated and dead. Kylie and SIRT team are investigating who is behind the killings. Griff knows who is behind the killings. When Kylie is approached by Griff, she thinks she has her killer. When she is abducted Griff comes to her rescue but her former taskforce still has their doubt about Griff and now Kylie as well. On the run, Grigg and Kylie must work together to stop anymore women from being killed. When I first started reading books I was originally attracted to Sci-Fi books so I am no novice to this genre. I found Ms. Lyndi Alexander has created exactly what I like in my Sci-Fi; a suggestion of the future without a conformation of it. I like to to be able to suspend reality without questioning time-frame accuracy. I just want to sit back and enjoy the book. I was not disappointed with A Small Degree of Hope. Filled with action and suspense, this page turner kept me riveted from the first to the last page. I found all the characters very well written and engaging. Kylie is a strong woman holding her own against the men in her life. Griff is a great romantic hero and he definitely has the strong semi-silent type down pretty good. Granted he's a shapeshifting lizard, but what was delightfully missing from his personality was the typical over-bearing macho-ism that you see in so many plots nowadays. I like how I was kept on my toes by not only the obvious villains but the additional questionable 'bad guys' Over-all A Small Degree of Hope is a great Sci-Fi book. Definitely a nice change from paranormals and very much worth the read. I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars - 4 Flames - 2
