Overview

Zander and Felix's relationship has been to the brink and back: the Human-Stin War, imprisonment and an actual death/resurrection. Zander's death, to be specific, and the experience has left him…changed. The mysterious race known as the Guardians chose to revive him and appointed him as their emissary. A high honor, but he could do without the group of would-be cultists following him around the galaxy.

When a recently discovered species destroys a stin probe, Zander's new role soon commands all of his time and focus. The human ambassador—Felix's ex-lover, much to Zander’s annoyance—pulls them into strategy talks aimed at preserving galactic peace. Soon everyone is relying on Zander's Guardian tech to telepathically communicate with the strange aliens.

Only Felix seems concerned with the strain piling up on Zander, but he has his own resolve tested when the very stin that imprisoned him show up to a summit. Zander and Felix will both have to find a way to face their doubts and preserve their love—while preventing another galaxy-wide war.

Inversion Point is the fourth story in what to date has been a really exciting and original sci-fi space opera romance series. With the same two characters being featured in each book, you'd think that by now it would start to feel a little familiar and possibly a tad boring. But no! With fresh and inventive plot ideas and galactic peace on the line, this latest is just as much fun as the previous entries. Felix and Zander have had a pretty rocky relationship up to now, but at the end of the last book (Skip Trace) things seemed to be settled down between them. The biggest news now is the appearance of another species at the Hub, a sort of galactic meeting point where the Guardians (the benevolent overseers who've been instrumental in past stories in helping Zander survive) have let through a new and previously unknown species to interact with the three main groups we've seen in the story to date - Humans, the Ashushk, and the Stin (previously at war with humans and the Ashushk, but in a currently stable truce). What effect this new species will have on the stability of the peace holding between them is the question, as ambassadors from all 3 species, with Zander as the emissary and the only one who can communicate with the new arrivals race to the Hub. And just to add some more tension to the mix, the human ambassador just happens to be an old friend and ex of Felix. Can Zander and Felix continue to strengthen their relationship amidst the whirl of events surrounding them? Once again, I was enthralled with this story, stuck out in deep space with an eclectic bunch of very likable characters with a new mission - to find a way to communicate with the species that has shown up in their quarter. I really enjoyed how inventive this was, both in terms of the species and how it communicates, as well as the whole story idea. Having Felix come face to face with the Stin who kept him as a prisoner of war was definitely stressful to read! You could just feel the emotion pouring off of him and Zander when they are put in this position. Because of Zander's unique role as emissary, he must remain neutral and as a peacemaker for everyone involved. There was a part of the story mid way when all hell broke loose, and I was seriously doubting my grand idea of reading at bedtime as it was not at all conducive to sleep! Suffice it to say that the plot twist and turns and the action is non-stop in this rollicking adventure. The relationship of Zander and Felix is tested once again, though not as much as in previous stories. In this case it's a bit of jealousy on Zander's side, when he sees the easy interaction Felix has with his friend and former lover Theo. The fact that Theo is a genuinely nice 'normal' guy isn't lost on Zander who is a bit of a mutant in comparison, with parts of all these different species embedded in his body courtesy of experimentation when he was a soldier in the Allied Earth Forces, not to mention his time with the Guardians (see books 1, 2 and 3 for more about that). But some of the happenings result in Zander and Felix finding a new way to communicate, one that ensures their love for each other is strong and unbreakable. I loved seeing the two of them in this relatively happy state. As in the previous books, there are some sexy love scenes between them too. At the end of this story, I breathed a huge sigh of relief that they had made it through this latest adventure. 5 stars for this exciting read!
