Exciting and clever sci fi romance: Set in distant future, Dellani Oakes’ Lone Wolf combines space flight, mining guilds, treachery and romance into an exciting action adventure with sensual and mystical overtones. Backstories are woven very naturally into the tale, with motivations and identities slowly clarified. The aliens are pleasingly exotic, genuine characters rather than just strange-shaped caricatures. And the mysteriously powerful Lone Wolf is a pleasingly flawed hero, trying to do his best while the past catches up with him and the present world tries to outwit him. The story’s told with nicely personable humor, clever dialog, enjoyable descriptions that fit well into the characters’ points of view, and a certain characteristic pre-occupation with sexuality . High-octane danger, science that’s sketchily clever enough to be convincing, and a plot that lets the reader guess solutions almost in time and in tune with the protagonists, all combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi romance, with just enough of both to keep fans of both genres happy. I kind of wished the story had ended a page or two before it did. There’s a natural conclusion, but a final few scenes promise a truly intriguing sequel which I will definitely have to read. Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this novel through a book club.

LONE WOLF-DELLANI OAKES Welcome to the year 3032. Mankind has ventured into deep space to mine trimagnite, a lethal semi liquid ore. Meet Mark Slatterly and Matilda Dulac two members of the intergalactic mining guild who encounter an unshielded shipment of the ore. Enter the Lone Wolf, Wilhelm VanLipsig to retrieve the deadly stuff and deliver it to the mining guild on Aolani. Upon seeing each other again Captain Slatterly and the Lone Wolf have a tense reunion leaving Dulac to wonder what the hell is up. Soon orders come in that the three report to guild headquarters for a new intriguing assignment not knowing the trap awaiting them. Dellani Oakes has penned an intriguing and action packed deep space adventure that is hard to put down. This reader went through the book from cover to cover in one day as she was unable to stop reading. I give the story five stars for an exciting plot, great comic relief, and exceptional steamy romance. I recommend the book to sci-fi fans everywhere and anxiously await the sequel.
