Product Description

This follows book 1, Guardian Angel of Farflung Station...

A Disillusioned Soldier

Hector Dukelsky, an upper-class career officer, yearns to fight a righteous war instead of defending corporate interests on Banff, an isolated mining moon. That dream seems dead when his entire command is slaughtered while he’s away, leaving him alone in smouldering rubble with no chance to survive, let alone strike back at the enemy.

A Pilot with a Chip on Her Shoulder

Catt Sayer, a working-class fugitive from the law, earns a meagre income carrying supplies on a decrepit airship, but her hard-won life vanishes when invaders capture Banff. While searching for survivors, she rescues Hector and flies him to safety. But he doesn’t want safety. He wants her to risk her life on a hopeless journey to attack the enemy headquarters.

A Dying Moon

Catt is sure Banff will kill them long before the enemy can … yet she agree s to Hector’s scheme, certain he’ll quit after experiencing one of the moon’s eruptions or ferocious storms. But he doesn’t quit, and slowly his noble dream—and his love—conquer her heart. She pits her life and love against Banff’s lethal environment, even though the only reward for success will be the opportunity to face ten thousand enemy warriors.

I was provided a copy of Escapee: Repelling the Invasion in exchange for an honest review. I’m not sure if maybe I was provided an older unedited copy; but one issue I had with the story was, it seemed like explanations were missing. For example, one moment they would be kissing then she is awkwardly covering her breasts. I would go back and re-read thinking I missed something; not realizing she stripped down, but nope, it wasn’t mentioned. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one to get hung up with tons of superfluous details; however, there are times when those details are left out I’m left scratching my head. Yes, I can conclude 1+1=2, but if you are going to write about 1, then two why not give us the other +1.

The imagery in the story was excellent; I had the air ship and the lava filled waste land clearly pictured in my mind. Yet again, so much time was spent reading about the ship, that it was hard not to get a clear picture of it. The story was getting a bit tedious with all of the technical aspects that really didn’t mean anything to me. Although the imagery was awesome.

So much time was spent fixing the ship, flying and trying to get to where they were going, I was becoming bored with the story; it would get exciting for a bit, then slow down again. There were some very strong emotional moments that were extremely heartfelt, and Hoornaert did an excellent job with the realism and desperation of the situation the survivors found themselves in. A point that I wasn’t happy with, it was a fade to black; not my favorite. He had his two leads screwing like rabbits, yet we got none of that, instead we got pages of how to fix parts of the ship. No offense, here I was thinking to myself, yep a man wrote this, sorry Edward.

Overall; I liked the excitement and the imagery of the story, yet too much time was spent on details that made the story drag. Don’t feel bad, I skipped pages of the inner working of the submarine in a Hunt for Red October too. Same type of thing. I am giving Escapee: Repelling the Invasion 2.5 stars. It was good at points, but could have been better at others.....Sara
4.0 out of 5 stars This book is supposed to be a bit like the African Queen 17 May 2016

This book is supposed to be a bit like the African Queen. I never watched the African Queen so I can't really compare and I'll have to write this review totally ignoring that fact and doing it for the story itself without prejudice, I guess.

The story is about a relationship during a freakishly successful invasion. Most of the story took place on board a very tiny ship with a reduce number of characters.
I have to say that the closed environment in this book made me kind of claustrophobic, which totally works because well you are taken in the same confined space as the characters, however it was a bit hard at time. I wanted to yell at them to get a a freaking city, join some resistance or fix the communication system. I mean get someone around, like a real person not a decorative prisoner.

The entire setting is about what the characters feel and how much they want each other. We know that there must be a lot happening outside because there was an invasion and it's a foreign planet with a crazy weather and crazy geography, which will crash into it's star but we don't know much about what else is happening to the people, about the invasion itself. Everything is so confine inside of the spaceship and the characters' sexual desire that I felt myself wanting more of the outside world a lot.

The characters are very well constructed and interesting. They both have heavy background that they end up sharing. I'm not sure how great a match they would have been if they were not in that kind of last man and last woman in existence sort of situation. There is a lot of prejudice to work around which is done very nicely as the story develop.

I'm not a big fan of romance, I like the science fiction part better. This book definitely fit in the romance category a lot more so it's more for romance fan than the science fiction fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Action. Go-go-go from page one. 22 April 2016

This book is go-go-go from page one. Ed Hoornaert did a wonderful job pulling it all together just right. Action, character development, and world-building are perfectly done. I laughed literally out loud a couple of times in spite of the tense situations. There were sad moments. Hoornaert made me care about the characters, two-legged, four-legged, and even the ugly six-legged one.

There were sex scenes, but tastefully done. I wouldn't consider the genre to be erotica. The romance was good. The two main characters went from really, really not liking each other in the beginning of the book to...something much different as the story progressed. I liked that there were actually mushy romantic moments.

The world-building was outstanding. The descriptions of their surroundings were vivid. The creatures, the android, the technology, all good.

There is another book in this series that comes before this one. I haven't read it yet, but that didn't affect my enjoyment of this story. I liked this book so much that I plan on reading the first one now. And I hope the author plans on writing more in this series.

Very entertaining read.

You should not tell a man that he does not know romance. We know they they can make wicked with seduction when needed, action for effect, suspense to draw you in or along, but this was a romantic adventure set in space that could teach some that romance does not have to be hardcore in your face right now. This was a romance to bloomed over time and under stress induced situations.

The world was rich and vivid. The characters warm, personable, and developed. Their adventure was engrossing, dangerous, and impossible. The creatures, tech, moons, planets, space itself were richly developed and allowed one to experience it visually.

I got the goods delivered in this one. I got action. I got emotional sadness, joys, humor. I got some suspense. I got it. I could and would read this one again. Space Opera. Action. Adventure. Romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 30 April 2016
By Elaine Charton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book! Growing up, I lost out on TV control and so I developed a taste for series such as Combat! Lots of Action, however when they put romance in the stories, I would love it even more.
This book grabs you and holds you to the very end. The action keeps you reading, it's got a Kick ass heroine, the hero has flaws, the both do but they learn and grow through it all. For fans of the movie THE AFRICAN QUEEN when I finished the book I could only think Charlie Alnutt and Miss would be proud of their dependents.
This is the first book I've read by this author but it won't be the last.
