I used to love the books of Anne MacCaffrey, escaping into the wonderful worlds and scenarios which she (and now her son, Todd) created. One of those books was entitled ‘The Ship Who Sang’ and it still is one of my all time favourites (though I don’t think I’ve ever posted a review of it..…yet!) This book is similar in some ways, having a ship controlled by a sentient being, beings interacting with the ship, dangers from attacking enemies and sabotage from within endangering the crew’s lives, add in the romance and you’ve got this novel – definitely a winning combination!
In this story Captain Nikolas EstherVorn has been leading an unsanctioned aid mission, trying to save Earth from being attacked by other-dimensional creatures. This aid has consequences far beyond any that they had initially realised, especially as so many terran women are now pregnant with progeny from members of the ship’s crew! It seems the men involved were drugged with some toxin but ships’ doctor, Dr Sarah Callen Joseph is prohibited from investigating. Niko and Sarah, however, are attracted to each other and she is determined to discover what has happened to him and the others. Will their quest to uncover the truth help save humanity – or destroy it? Will their love ever find a way? You’ll just have to read it to find out!
A great read, with complex characters portraying the dilemmas facing them as they defy the rules to solve the mysteries and seek their own HEA. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys mysteries with science fiction and romance combined in a very readable novel.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too,
for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
