    Lonely Shore

    After I finished Chaos Station I started with Lonely Shore right after. Lonely Shore starts of a bit after book 1 and mostly deals with the results of Zander's health troubles with the poison that changed him into an ex soldier. This book was sad, but also beautiful and filled with hope. And even tough it was sad in a lot of places, I still enjoyed reading this book. I really liked the writing styles of these two authors and now having read books by both authors alone I can also say I like their styles separately. The writing fits the story and I liked how they didn't shy away of showing exactly how much was wrong with Zed. It was sad to see him slowly decline and lose pieces and memories, until he almost didn't feel like the same person anymore. It was sad, but also a necessary part of their story. For a long time I wasn't sure how they would survive this, what the way out would be. And I am still not fully happy with what happened as I always feel those type of plot lines/ twists feel a bit off somehow. But all in all I did like how it was handled. It did make sense sort of and also why it had to happen this way. I am not sure I fully understand what this will mean for the characters, I am sure we'll find out in future books. What Zander and Felix go through in this book is heartbreaking and while it was horrible to see what Zander went through, I almost felt even worse for Felix, who is seeing his lover decline like that. I do think it shows again how much they care about each other and with all the hardships they go through, the ending of this book ends on a positive note. This book is great in terms of world building and how we see the world get expanded a bit more in this book. Now with the initial set-up done in book 1 we get to see more of the other alien races. I liked learning more about the Ashucks and how the authors did a good job making them seem alien, but you could still care for them as well. I also really liked Qek in this book. To summarize: this book was pretty sad, but also I think an important part of this series. And it's also hopefully and the book ends on a high note. It was sad to see both Zander and Felix got through this, Zander is struggling with his health due to the poison and Felix sees his lover slowly disappear. For a long time I had no idea how they would make it through this. And while the book was sad I still enjoyed it as it's so well written and while sad it also shows the depth of feelings between these two. I also liked seeing the world get expanded on a bit more, we learn more about especially the Ashuk's in this book and I also really liked Qek in this book. While difficult to read at times, it was well written and I liked seeing where everyone is at the end of the book and am looking forward to reading book 3.

    stellar addition to the series!

    I loved this story! Following on the heels of Chaos Station, book 1 in the series, this one continues the romance started in book 1 (though each story has a clearly defined ending with no cliffhangers). While I highly recommend Chaos Station as well, you can easily jump into the series with this one. The story follows the crew of the ship Chaos, with Felix and Zander being the couple of interest, and the captain Elias, the medical officer Ness and the pilot Qek rounding out the cast of colourful and interesting characters. The world building is precise and clearly defined, explained in simple terms yet complex enough to make it clear that 'we ain't in Kansas anymore'. The human connection keeps the reader grounded but there is no doubt that this is science fiction (and I'd say that fans of any Star Trek TV shows would definitely find comfort here, especially Voyager and Deep Space Nine ones, like me). The alien races of interest - the Ashushk to which Qek the pilot belongs, the Stin who we don't see directly except as a consequence of the war, the elusive and mysterious Guardians who seem to control everything yet generally stay in the background observing and not interfering, and other species make the story lively and interesting. There are good guys, bad guys and everything in between, just on an intergalactic scale. The different worlds and space stations that the Chaos ship travels to are well written and colourful. Yet at the same time, it's the age old story of boy meets boy, boy falls in love with boy, just with a little alien Mafia type characters thrown into the mix. While you've got the action and suspense plot going on, Flick and Zed hold our attention. They've had a rough go of it, having finally reunited after several years apart in book 1 and still getting used to being together. Only Zed's health is failing, both mentally and physically. I confess that there were parts of the story that almost had me in tears (okay, more than almost) as the emotional upheaval and turmoil being felt by both twisted my heart. There is no denying that they love each other, even if they don't want to use the words and the chemistry between them, even after so many years apart is just as strong and undeniable as it was in the beginning. And the scenes between them get pretty steamy. The story is told predominantly in Zed and Flick's points of view, with the occasional chapter coming from Elias, the ship's captain who is trying to protect his crew and find a solution to Zed's increasingly dangerous and undeniable deterioration. I loved seeing the story from all three angles. They have a tight knit crew, and Zed's health concerns them all, resulting in decisions that will affect the future course of the ship and the story. It was a captivating read, with lighthearted and funny moments interspersed between the more serious ones. The story ended very satisfactorily, with a hint of what's to come next. I can't wait to take the next step in the journey! 5 stars.

    Yep; I'm officially hooked on this SF series. In this second book, Burke and Jensen double down on all the charactery goodness that made CHAOS STATION so enjoyable, push their cast into new areas of the galaxy, and resolve a couple of plot threads while still leaving plenty of dangly bits for the next three books. It left me desperate to read on.
