I loved this book. It's the first time I've ventured into reading a futuristic romance and am so pleased I did.
Hywela Lyn masters the perfect mix of romance and adventure. Her descriptions of planets and their life forms are both vivid and beautiful. You are there with Jess every step of the way. Really really enjoyed it. Will definitely be reading the sequel Children of the Mist.

A perfect escape this science fiction romance is just a gorgeous book that had me coming back for more every day. It was a roller coaster ride and I grew to really love the characters. No spoilers all I will say is I was very surprised at the ending - in a good way. I had no idea! I rushed straight to the next book in the series Children Of The Mist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great SciFi book with some romance 14 May 2015
By Mainer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a well-written science fiction novel with a healthy dose of romance. There were twists that I didn't see coming and that I really liked which would make this a superior book in any genre. I thought the world building was excellent; each new planet had very definite characteristics, scenery, animal and plant life, and customs that clearly differentiated it from others in space. The main character, Jess, is a pilot on a mission to save a planet that was conquered by a militant race and enlists the aid of another spaceship to help her. It is when that mission is accomplished that things go awry and Jess sets off on another mission to find her lover with the aid of another pilot Dahll.
In some ways this book reminded me of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series which I love. I would heartily recommend this book. I already have the next one in the series, Children of the Mist, on my reader and can't wait to read it.

Really enjoyed this sci/fi novel. It focused mostly on the adventure, which was spurred on by the romance. Using journal entries was an interesting approach to writing the book. The ending was unexpected.

1.0 out of 5 stars I want my money back 19 April 2010
By B's Views - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
ALERT Minor spoilers may be below. But if you are smart, you wont buy this book.

This book is AWEFUL. It starts out okay. Written in third person. Then suddenly shifts to the journal of the main character. The journel is written badly and often shifts from present tense to past tense for no apparent reason. Puncuation is awful too and I found it distracting, most notably the quotation marks. And I am not saying I am the guru of grammar and punctuation, but that is what an editor is for. However, that is only half the problem. I was not expecting brain surgery, but I was expecting to feel for the character. Simply put, I did not. I was expecting to feel what she felt for those around her, I did not. The only time I felt anything was when she was tortured and part of me wished she died there, but of course, since this is being written about in her journel, no bets there. I wish I could describe how I felt as I plowed through this horrendous peice of... I can not call it literature. It was just bad. I went on, assured by some reviews that the surprise ending was so good. It was HORRIBLE. Instead of happy with the ending I was more like, "What the hell?" and "I don't get it!" If you really, really have to read it, try to find it for free. Sorry to those who loved it, but this is how I see it and wanted to give fair warning.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Waiting for the Movie! 3 Jun. 2010
By Miss Mae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Oh wow, do I love, love, love this book!!! I've devoured it twice! Ms Lyn has an extraordinary way of describing space travel and alien worlds with such depth and insight that you sit back and think, "Whoa! This lady has actually BEEN THERE!"

It involves the adventures of Jess Darnell, missionary, who seeks to help the populace of one world when her spaceship explodes. She's rescued by the crew aboard the Destiny where she meets and falls in love with Kerry, a man rather difficult to perceive if his heart can be thawed. Yet, when they land on a planet and confront an enemy, after being hit by blaster fire, and Jess dies in his arms, well, you know the depth of his love.

From then on, the story changes from third person narrative to first person, but you understand this because the entry plainly says, "Extracts From a Journal: I have decided to keep a record of everything I remember and everything that happens to me from now on."

If someone is writing a journal, naturally they do so in the "I", first person tense.

So the reader "gets it" that something has changed and we're watching from a different perspective. When we learn this is actually Jess writing in her journal, we think, "Wait a minute. Didn't she die? How could -- hmm, but this is in the future. What if -- ?" And, intrigued, you continue on to find out how could Jess die in Kerry's arms, yet she's also writing a journal????

And Jess can't remember what happens to her, except that "to save me, they did something horrible".

Oh, yeah? What was the "horrible" part?????

Slowly, ever so slowly, as Jess's memories gradually return, you travel the universe with her and her new companion, Dahll. Though I thoroughly loved the episode in the medieval-type castle, I really enjoyed the danger and almost rigor-mortis tension that happened on the planet with the carnivorous plants! *gulp*

If you're a "Star Wars" or "Star Trek" fan, like I am, you won't be disappointed by this beautiful, exciting tale. You'll love the ending as much as I did, and this will be one of those rare love stories that'll live forever inside your soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great World Building 11 July 2011
By Nancy J. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jess is piloting her spacecraft on a vital mission when a disaster befalls her ship. She sends out a distress call and is picked up by a passing vessel. During the voyage home, she falls in love with the second in command. The crew helps her people when they're attacked by a vicious race. They repel the invaders, but Jess takes enemy fire and is presumed dead.

Unknown to the crew who depart without her, she is taken to a healing center and kept alive. Desperate to find the man she loves once she's well again, and puzzled as to why he'd leave without her, she hires another pilot and craft so she can search for him. Thus begin many adventures where Jess and her new partner draw closer together until Jess realizes which man it is that she truly loves.

The story has some unexpected twists and turns and a satisfying conclusion. If you're a fan of futuristic romance, you might like this story that's told in a unique journal format.
