Yates/Yana belongs to a group called the Peace Keepers and lives in a city in space. Sean is a detective and has no idea such a force is possible, let alone exists as a satellite to Earth. Sean is convinced Yates is ‘dirty’ and desperately wants to pin something on him. So, he gets a shock when Yates saves him from an assassination attempt and takes him HOME.
For me I found HOME to be somewhat like – Star Trek meets Dr. Who, with an added twist. Only the tales are being told from the POV of one of the civilizations they visit, rather than from the Enterprise or Tardis. It is also a book of two parts. The first part concentrates on the revelations of HOME, and the relationship between Sean and Yates (aka Yana), the second half is mission orientated. At which time, we are treated to a view of what else is ‘out there’. Some of it is scary. Some of it is erotic. It comes down to personal preference on action vs. romance as to which anyone will favour.
HOME has a good cast of varied individuals, from cute little Evie, and the best friend - Aaron, to a diverse range of aliens. I have to admit, Aaron was my fav.
As with most books, there are highs, lows and everything in between. And yes, some missions left me with questions, but how much detail a writer goes into is one of the choices an author has to make. Science fiction can be a minefield of tangents. Also, I’m no technical expert, so can’t comment on what is theoretically possible, all I know, is, what is believable, and HOME didn’t have me heading for Google. Damn, I so wish it was real to have a lover who could appear out of nowhere to be with me at my time of need. Oh and the possibilities of avoiding traffic jams. At that part, I was officially jealous. The sex is hot too – Sean is a pro at giving head.
I love science fiction, but, for me, a highlight was seeing Sean at his day job, it added some grounding and reality to the proceedings. However, once Sean and Yana go on missions, situations get dicey, to the point where their faith and trust in each other is tested.
HOME has a lot in it and reading it was like reading the series movie and following episodes. By now, you guys know I don’t do spoilers. What I will say is that HOME contains lizards, a pleasure planet, capture, jealousy, heartache, two stubborn foolhardy men, harvesters, family issues and a host of situations. If that sounds up your street, beam this to an electronic device near you.
