    We will do all we can to save them.

    We will do all we can to save them. 5 CHERRY BLOSSOMS One thing was clearer than anything. Failure was not an option. Sometimes life just sucked. Had Death just laughed at him? Are you ready? Ready to embark on a journey like no other? Well strap yourself into your seat because this interplanetary transport ship is going to take you on one exciting, shocking, amazing, heart-wrenching, heart-warming, emotional, out of this world TREMATIRANDOUS adventure to find friendship, love, healing, faith in yourself, your gift, and Salvation! WOW!! This is one BOCKTACULAR story that focuses on Sakura Yamata & Nicholaus Bock or "Brother of our esteemed Profeta" as the Matiran's refer to him. I have to say that when I found out this book is set seven years after Prophecy, I was worried that the magic would be lost, that maybe I wouldn’t love it just as much as I do love Prophecy, but WOW!! That could not have been more further from the truth!!! I ABSO-NULKING-LUTELY love, Love, LOVE this book!! I love the characters, the updates on everyone, just EVERYTHING!!! Well except the sad parts, but by now we all know that those lows make the highs that much sweeter! Like cherry blossom sweeter! I fell in love with Alex & Gryf the moment I met them in Prophecy (book 1 of the series) and was really hoping that we would continue with them in future books. When I saw it was about Alex’s brother Nick, I will admit to being a touch disappointed (I DID say that I fell in love with Alex & Gryf and I meant in!), but then I was excited to see what Nick was up to and why he did what he did, chose a different path, and just get to know him. Lea did not disappoint in the slightest! In fact, I actually fell for Nick *almost* as quickly as I did with Alex!  And Sakura? She was an enigma that I was determined to understand and discover her secrets, because there is no doubt that she harbors something big that she doesn’t want ANYONE to know about! For the record, I DO love this story as much as Prophecy and I do love Nick & Saku!! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the very same “aliens” that we briefly met in book 1, that helped our heroes escape and survive. And to be able to live with them on another planet?!? WHOOOT! Then there is that moment when Saku & Nick joined minds! It was so beautiful, so precious, so perfectly PERFECT it brought tears to MY eyes! But then again, it is a Lea Kirk book! The way she tells a story goes way beyond, much deeper, than “just reading a book”. It truly is a full-fledged, all around all sensory experience! Lea doesn’t just have you read the book. She transports you into the story, so that you not only live the story with the characters, you BECOME the characters! You experience everything with them, for them and AS THEM, and REALLY see - feel - inside their hearts & minds, giving you a gift that is too precious for mere words! I honestly cannot think of adequate words that share my love and excitement for this series, especially without leaking some spoilers!!!! Trust me! This is definitely a series you should – NEED to – read! I was so completely absorbed into the story that I couldn't tell where the book left off and I started! Or where I left off and the book started! I laughed, cried, cringed, worried, relaxed, held my breath, gasped and every other reaction right along with - as - Nick, Saku, Dante and even for her brief appearance, with & as Alex! In fact I was so absorbed into the story I apparently didn't even hear the voices OUTSIDE of my head!! oops! Sorry Mom! When reading this book, I had the sensation of being encased in warm, soft, fuzzy cuddles, that stayed with me for the entire story. At first I thought it was because I was just so excited to FINALLY read more in this SPACETASTIC series (I say “finally” because as soon as I finished Prophecy I immediately wanted more, More, MORE to read simply because it was that great and I loved it that much!). But then I realized it was something more preternatural – LEA’S GIFT!!! It is Lea's Gift that comes across to me like warm, soft, fuzzy, cuddles. Just like when I get all comfy in my pjs & settled in to read a SPACETACULAR Lea Kirk book!! Lea is without a doubt, hands down, a Master of the highest level with her Gift - the Gift to create SCI-FINOMENAL stories!! The very kind of stories that transport me to another time and place where "aliens" are not only real, but close friends, family, even mates! If you are looking for a series that will take you hostage, that will take you on an epic adventure like no other, then THIS IS THE SERIES FOR YOU!!!!

    A worthy successor to book one!

    What I liked: The two MCs are adorable! This is a play on the enemies to lovers trope (one of my favourites) though not quite the kill on sight variety. While ... might first come across as a grade a jerk, I understood his frustration and his rejection of an iunwanted gift and position rced upon him. But he swiftly rose to the challenge, and his sensitive handling of the heroine later in the book will melt the frostiest heart hardened against his preceding jerk-ish behaviour. The heroine is quite justified in her initial assessment of him but I felt a touch too much jealousy over his position and talent coloured her behaviour. However, as we learn how broken she is, I admired her strength and resolve, supported by the hero, as she fought to find her own path. Those nervous of the SciFi tag should be reassured - other than being on an alien planet and some simple (and in places humorous) detail on alien anatomy and customs, this is light on the SF element and much more character driven romance and adventure that any romance reader should enjoy, more like ER/CSI set off world. What I didn't like: The opening sex scene, while certainly hot and well written, made me wince a couple of times. Haesi is clearly a masochist but it might leave some readers flinching. Please trust me that this is a very small proportion of the book and later sex scenes are far more sensual! I would also have preferred more SF elements, but then I'm an addict for my scifi. In conclusion: While this wasn't the same 'tear out your heart and stomp on it' rollercoaster of book one (or maybe I was just better prepared) it is a worthy successor in this series. You will need to have read book one to follow this as I don't think it would stand well alone even if it focuses on different main characters. A heartwarming sexy romance between two characters struggling to overcome troubled pasts and really be the saviours of the title for an alien race depending on them. Both make a journey of discovery and find ways to heal themselves as well as their alien allies. Recommended for those who like medical/adventure romances in exotic locations as it may be a little light on the SciFi elements for the SFR fans.
