TBR reviewer: B.H.
Did I mention that this particular Coletti warlord is the most feared in the entire galaxy? That Zarek’s the ultimate predator and even the other warlords are scared spitless of him? That he never ever stops until he either captures or kills his prey?
Yeah, I have the big, bad after me and all because of one little finger. Okay and a Ditrim crystal the size of my fist. Am I worried? Of course, only an idiot doesn’t fear a very angry Coletti warlord. But, I am very good at what I do. Bad news is, so is Zarek.
giddy when I found out Ms. Koger submitted it to The TBR Pile.
Detja is a master thief who just stole a crystal from a hot and dangerous warlord. How freaking enticing does that sound! It begins a little shaky, it’s an information overload with a very rushed feel and overuse of 'Balock’s Balls' as well
as 'Goddess'. There’s a fight then suddenly her father’s in her head and the
description is a bit hard to picture. Ms. Koger leaves more to the imagination
so the reader is left on their own when it comes to details. When we first meet
them, Detja is fleeing from Zarek and there is no detail. What does an air bike
look like? Is she in a city or town? Are there big building or floating buildings or little huts?
Then there’s the fact that her 'loving' father ‘sold’ her to Zarek because he needs to rebirth. Yes, rebirth, no I don’t know what that’s about either. Ms. Koger failed to
explain that. Apparently, her father also changed her room into a ‘man’s wet dream’ with silk and sex toys. He also has her naked for the man he sold her to, which is Zarek. Her father does this! Are you serious? He’s supposed to be a good guy? Not in this or any other universe!
Also what’s with the ten second thing. In ten seconds, this happened, in ten seconds that happened. Her action scenes don’t have that fire that makes for a
compelling read. At one point, she described the sexy hero who comes off as a
prick as 300 pounds. Really? That wording just does not create an image of lust.
There’s also a ring and other devices that are apparently on a belt that solves nearly all problems. Stunning the enemy, explosions, healing agent, pain killer, you
get the idea. It’s just all too convenient.
I was looking forward to reading this and I am disappointed. Ms. Koger seemed to rush the entire story and desperately needs details. The plot was so interesting
and it does get somewhat better as the book progresses. I can’t help but give this 3 stars. So much potential and I hope she grows in her writing abilities.
