Orion’s Gate - Team Galaxy Riders. The Great Space Race is by Sabine Priestley. If you have read any of Sabine’s Alien Attachments series, then you’ve met Armond Nolde. He is an Earth Protector and is a creator of portals. He is an albino and is perceived as being cold, emotionless. Armond learned the hard way many years before the consequences of letting his emotions get the better of him. He will never let that happen again so he has learned how to keep himself on lock down. Against his will, Armond is sucked into a portal and transported farther than he has ever traveled before, to a new galaxy. In order to be allowed to return home, he is forced to participate in a contest of sorts. It is sort of a cross between Hunger Games and the show Survivor. He and a partner will be required to obtain a box from a series of destinations, each with their own type of danger. Unfortunately the partner he is assigned is a woman who is his complete opposite in every way. Vin is a woman with blue skin, lots of curves, and an appetite for life. She is tired of living a quiet life and she has seen previous seasons of the race so she decided to sign up. Much to her surprise, she was accepted. Vin is an empath and when she is paired with Armond, she feels nothing from him, a complete void of emotions. As Armond and Vin begin their quest, Armond is surprised at the level of intelligence of Vin. They work well together. But when Vin suffers an accident and needs healing, Armond has to lower his emotional walls and Vin sees everything. These two realize they are mates, the perfect yin to the other’s yang. But what happens when the race is over? They live in separate galaxies. Will they be allowed to travel together? Unfortunately, this book was a bit of a miss for me. I have loved everything by this author up to now but this one just didn’t work. There were so many details with each phase of their quest and I had trouble keeping track. And as much as I was looking forward to Armond getting his chance at finding his mate, I just never felt the connection between them. This won’t effect my desire to continue reading Sabine’s work in the future. This one just didn’t hold my interest.
