    A very pleasant read. I actually read Jumper's Hoe first but nothing lost by doing so

    Loved it. The relationship build was great. Looking forward to the next in the series. Hope each one maintains the suspense.

    I loved the finesse with which Van Natta handles Mairwen and Luka's individual back-stories. Their motivations and challenges are there, clear and sufficient, without overwhelming. There's just enough to explain and engage with Mairwen and Luka without dumping too much emphasis on previous events. It's handled in such a quiet way that every time there's a little more the plot moves forward, not the other way. I also really enjoyed the subtle humour I found ever present. As little as a few words or the smallest change in facial expression made the dialogue real and relatable and I found myself connecting more and more with Mairwen and Luka. Too many times I've read SFR with overdone violence or straight to the bedroom smut and the relationship between the H/h is lost to the flash and bang. Luka and Mairwen come across as very genuine and their relationship builds in solid layers. Van Natta's tech is both simple (in that it's reasonable and makes sense) and powerful (in that it's reasonable and makes sense. Her names both for super gadgets and plain old household items tell us exactly what it is and what it does without losing me in any need for weighty description. Finally, it was so refreshing to see a H/h pair somewhat close in age to my own. They had a respect and maturity we don't usually see in romances set around twenty-somethings. It was nice to see them being good together without unnecessary drama centered around eye-rolling juvenile behaviour. I'm glad they have a follow-up novella together as I will miss them. I must admit to a small amount of trepidation getting in to the sequel, Minder Rising, since I'm so fond of Mairwen and Luka but I'm also happily in to Van Natta's well built Galactic Concordance world and look forward to experiencing more. FYI: New favourite space-ish curse word is "cluster bucket" If you're new to SFR or a hopeless addict I think you'll find Overload Flux to be a good find. Definitely recommended.

    Trouble is brewing, investigator Luka Foxe’s hidden mental talent is out of control, Mairwen Morganthur wants to remain an autonomous night shift guard and their only hope for survival lies in revealing their dark secrets and learning to trust one another in this action packed sci-fi romance. Mairwen has hidden herself away from her enemies by hiding her extraordinary skills under the boring guise of a nightshift guard and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as this young woman is thrust front and center into the middle of a very dangerous investigation with the sexy Luka. Both have secrets that can make or break them emotionally and literally if others were to find out which makes things quite interesting as they look into the two deaths of Luka’s co-workers. Mariwen tries to keep Luka at arm’s length but the chemistry between them slowly simmers into a full boil the closer they have to work together. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning especially as they are quite different from most giving them a very mysterious air in this fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of action, suspense and romance. Spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story the closer they get to the answers they need and to spice things up even more as the danger escalates from quite a few different players, betrayals and some twists that keeps the reader guessing. There is never a dull moment amongst the stars as the well written scenes and details capture the imatination and the well orchestrated suspense and action draw the reader deeper into the story and refuses to let go. I must admit I pleasantly surprised just how fascinating the author’s world has turned out to be and the interesting epilogue certainly has me waiting impatiently to see what adventure this promising new series will boldly take me
