Getting to Galen by Lotta Bangs

Taj, an escaped bio-engineered super-soldier, taught her whole company to love. Separated from her friends she finds help and support, then spends many years searching for her mates in the world she finds outside Typhon and avoiding the weirdo religious sect Galen. Finally, by dropping bricks on his head, she finds Evan and falls in love. It is far from a romantic reunion and the thickhead seems blind to her tentative seductive overtures.Taj becomes a very successful veterinarian and eventually goes to Galen where she discovers her true self. She finally has her way with Evan and captures his love, knowing it will be hers for only one day until he again sees his soul mate Rowena, the powerful, mysterious founder of Galen. Taj finds her special guys, her true vocation and much more, just as Galen is attacked simultaneously at many locations all over the world.

About the Author

I’m Aussie, way over 35, thankfully and very happily divorced, and have a wonderful daughter who very occasionally beta-reads for me. A few years ago we had 13 cats; we just lost another, so now only one of those remains. We have added 6 more over the years, including the sweet feral ragdoll which is my Facebook avatar. I generally prefer female cats, but have also had some magnificent males. I couldn’t live without cats, just wish their lives were longer. I’m having a lot of problems adjusting to social media which doesn’t leave me enough time for writing and editing, so I won’t be expanding my web presence any time soon. If you want to know about NEW RELEASES and SPECIALS you will need to FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK. I have announced coupons to get a new release free here, but apparently nobody reads author biographies. Of course my books are what you are really interested in. Originally, I wrote a long continuous story, starting at Reacquaintance, told from Ro’s POV. Then when Ro disappeared for a year or so, I had to use Taj to fill in the gaps, and she proved so feisty and interesting, that I added in her back story, starting with Getting to Galen and continuing in The Deep End. After Thxx’s Story, the various POVs continue in the same stream. I had to break up my huge tomes into installments that could be published separately as I finished editing them. I’m afraid my writing was quite stuffy at first, with convoluted 12- to 15-line sentences, turgid half-page paragraphs, and a lot of pompous pontification and personal political opinion which the story didn’t need. I had to rip out a lot before I could publish. I think the books are greatly improved now. I was giving away my books for free for most of a year, hoping to develop a fan base quickly, but learned that people don’t value what is free. Though over 20K copies have been downloaded, very few seem to have been read, and even fewer have been reviewed. I was unlucky to attract an ill-wisher who thought it amusing to devalue every one of my few 5-star reviews. Perhaps that put off others from reviewing. Certainly, without good reviews, few readers cared to buy my books, so if you have enjoyed them, I really would appreciate a short review. With the next book, The Power of Art, I will be doubling all my prices, so they’ll never be cheaper than they are now. I believe that I am the only person writing Utopian books today, though mine are nothing like the political satires of yesteryear. My books are based on the power of love to bring out the best in everybody, to develop their souls and help them to evolve into higher beings. Ro started Galen, and she, Taj and their men lead their people to make Galen a true Utopia which reaches out to the stars. Cat lovers will adore Brinna, my sentient sabretooth, though we have intelligent dogs and dinosaurs too. Though you couldn’t call my series a space opera, I do have a space battle planned, probably the cutest ever written, but that is still a way off. I really will have to buckle down and get more books edited and published so I can write some more.

I agree with the first reviewer. What did you other guys do--get drunk and set out to deliberately sabotage a struggling writer? Bad karma. Remember the power of three. I loved the main character, Taj. She's strong, feisty, independent and hot-blooded. I can't wait to read more about her.

I read the entire book to see what would happen, but now I wish I hadnt. This seemed like something a jr high student would write for extra credit to bring thier grade up. Too much details on mundane things, and boring nonsense droning on and on. Most of this book made zero sense. Honestly the idea for the story was good, but not written well at all. I do not recommend you waste your time on this book.
