3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but with Problems 7 November 2015
By Aeryn C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This review contains mild spoilers.

I have to give this book three stars, because the writing was fairly solid. The dialogue wasn't stilted or unrealistic, and I could see the premise of this story happening.

The male hero (Falk) is very domineering, although he's written realistically. While overbearing men aren't my thing, I did like how he was written, so there's that.

The main problem I have is what a lot of writers consider to be 'strong female characters.' Hannah was annoying enough to knock two stars off this book. She single-handedly busted a human trafficking ring in the events before the story, and yet she came across as meek and completely unable to defend herself. It's a contradiction I can't resolve in my head... People who have the bravery to put themselves into a situation where their life is in danger are also the people who are able to at least try to defend themselves or have some sort of obvious willpower. Even a temper. In the book, Hannah is a doormat. She never throws a punch at her aggressors, and when she finally fired a weapon, it's not exactly clear if it was an accident. Heck, she might (at that point) have not even been able to tell the difference between her rescuer and her captor.

Hannah was sexually assaulted prior to events of the book (where, notably, she had the strength to lash out, punch someone, and jump the hell out of a vehicle before escaping - qualities we don't see at all from her in the story itself). In any case, after this rape, she would not allow herself to be touched, which is an adequate consequence. However, after the first half of the book when she is captured and made to perform sexual favors over and over and over, the first thing she wants to do when Falk rescues her is have sex with him. Her recovery is literally that immediate.

Really, the problem with this book is entirely Hannah. I kept wishing that this woman turned out to be Hannah's decoy, and that the real Hannah who beat up two sex offenders with her bare hands (and maybe a tire iron) would suddenly appear and take over.

I can't take off a star for the alien invasion sub plot, 'cuz I love me some aliens. But if you're going to shoehorn stuff like that in, you have to allude to it more in the book. You can't make it an mysterious, overarching plot and then have it fizzle at the end when an alien shows up for the sole purpose of just explaining where the women went. They either needed to be in the book more, or not at all.

(Still, cool Alien robot thing. It reminds me of the little critters from Men in Black, living in their human suits.)

This book is an okay read, but I wish I hadn't spent $3.99 on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Far fetched and corny. 26 October 2015
By Angie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*2.5 stars*

Commodity started out promising enough. Hannah is on her way to D.C. to testify against a human trafficker. Falk meets her at the Atlanta airport with his team of bodyguards to escort her safely.

All hell breaks loose. Explosions. Men are dead. Women and children have vanished.

Falk is still under the impression he has to see Hannah safely to the Capitol. I think the mission is what kept Falk going under these new conditions. I thought Savage painted a decent picture of what the early stages of the after effects of a major catastrophe would look like. The split povs with the time jump was a nice touch. And I liked the Ehd reference. That made me squee a little.

But I thought it was way too much of a coincidence the circumstances involving Brett and Caeser. What are the odds? I love dystopian novels but I wasn't expecting this kind of cause for the end of the world. And to be honest - I thought it was kind of lame. The story was okay enough but this made it cheesy. Not my cup of tea.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 10 December 2015
By Jtor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This felt rushed and improbable. The characters were mundane, the situation unbelievable. It did not have that suspension of disbelief that comes with a solid plot, good characters and good dialogue. You can still read a romance featuring aliens, bad guys and the fall of society and still lose yourself in it. I LOVED Surviving Rain and Transcendence, yet Commodity felt forced, rushed and depressing. And the characters! Blah! He was almost a stock alpha male with little distinction, and she was a perpetual victim. I hate to say it but there are much better apocalyptic romances out there. And frankly, the sexy time was not so sexy.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Commodity! 20 October 2015
By Marie Jocke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I may be strange, but I have thought about the end of the world before. A lot. About what I would do and how others would behave. So I knew this book would be right up my alley. Hannah finds herself as one of the few women left after something occurs where the women and children are gone and many of the men are killed. She and her bodyguard Falk come to the realization that the men who have survived will soon be looking for women...for mates or for trade. This book was incredible. There were so many moments when I found my heart in my throat, unable to go to bed because I had to keep reading. This is one of my favorite reads this year. When the apocalypse comes, I hope I have Falk at my side.
3.0 out of 5 stars 3 Original if not amazing stars 13 January 2016
By Ratula R. - Published on Amazon.com

I think this was an interesting addition to the usual dystopian stories but with an original concept.

IMO, the h and H had ZERO to little emotional connection though. I barely even felt their physical connection but rather felt that the old saying "if you were the last man/woman on earth..then maybe" was the case here (even though there were other survivors.) It just seemed like a relationship developed out of convenience rather than actual want and need.

Overall, I felt it was an ok story which could have been flushed out more.
