    An Interesting Start to a Series

    Though not as great as her Atrophy Series, this one was still an interesting start to a new series. I loved what we learned about the world and the war that’s going on. This is mostly a military based science fiction romance with a war between those embracing technology and those abhorring it. A little more information on the war between the UEF and the CSS would have been nice. We’re thrown into the middle of the war and there wasn’t a whole lot of context provided, it almost felt like I missed a prequel or something. I loved Kai and his inner strength; he’s so determined to return to normal and be with Sacha but he struggles with his return to the Knox. After everything he’s been through I just wanted to hug Kai and make it all better. Sacha’s struggle was very real and genuine. She wants to make sure nothing interferes with Kai’s recovery but she also wants to embrace having Kai back in her life. I wish that Kai’s physical recovery hadn’t been so easy, as crazy as that might sound. This futuristic world has medical technology that heals Kai’s year of torture, malnutrition, and injuries in about 48 hours. I guess having him recover so quickly just seemed to lessen what he went through. It just didn’t work for me. His mental recovery was more on target though with his PTSD and anxiety attacks. I liked that Sacha and Kai were friends who are just now realizing their attraction. They loved each other as friends but weren’t friends just because they couldn’t be anything else. Most friends-to-lovers stories have the characters already wildly attracted to each other and hiding it but this time they were just friends. Subconsciously their feelings might have been deeper but their friendship was true and honest. But personal opinion, I’m really not crazy about the best friend’s widow story line so I struggled with that. Sacha has a lot of guilt over moving on from her husband’s death; her feelings are completely warranted because she loved Elliott and it hasn’t been that long but she comes to realize that she loved Kai first, she just didn’t know it. Losing Kai also made her numb and by the time Elliott was killed she couldn’t really feel anything else. I thought compared to most I’ve read that Anastasi handled the situation really well, it’s just not my thing.

    Escape Velocity

    They thought he had been killed in action but now he has returned to and been put under the care of his friend Sasha, only Commander Kai Yang doesn’t know that if he can ever be the man he was or the man Sasha deserves in this emotionally gripping sci-fi romance. Dr. Sasha Dalton has thrown herself into her work since she lost Kai and her husband Elliot one after the other and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as Kai returns after escaping from the enemy to find that his feelings for his childhood friend has changed into something more. Their attraction to each other burns hotter that the explosions from the battles but they are both are torn apart emotionally as they struggle with past issues and current issues that have such a stirring and profound effect on their lives. The characters are strong, compelling and capture the heart as they draw the reader in to this steady to fast paced and smooth flowing romance full of suspense, excitement and romance. The story starts off building spine tingling anticipation and keeps the readers on the edge of their seat throughout as they get to know the characters and want to know their whole story. Exciting action and suspense draws the reader in as well when Kai suspects that the enemies have infiltrated the Valiant Knox but due to what happened to him no one’s sure whether it’s stress related or not. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and bring the story to life and readers should be prepared for some scenes may inspire tears (if you are like me and get completely immersed in the story). Jess Anastasi has created a fascinating futuristic sci-fi romance with an interesting setting, intriguing characters and interesting elements to keep readers completely entertained. I couldn’t put the book down until I had read every last word and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for the people of the Valiant Knox. 4 1/2 STARS
