New Seion by Diana Green - My review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love romance, Science Fiction and historical Westerns, so it's not surprising I loved this book!
To start with, it has a real 'frontier' feel to it, with a guntoting heroine, Flynn, pretending to be a young man, and a handsome, chivalrous bounty hunter. The sexual tension between them fairly sizzles, as Flynn tries to keep her true gender a secret from Eamon despite slowly falling in love with him. It's not all a 'Wild West' scenario though, there are several alien species, from the vicious and unpleasant raiders who killed Flynn's parents and raped and kidnapped her sisters, to the honorable Jor, from Krell who is desperate to rescue his Princess after their spacecraft crashes and she is abducted.
Add to the mix a space battle and some interesting world building, including some exotic beasts of burden, and you have an exciting Science Fiction adventure with a light dash of romance. The only negative thing I can say about the story is that, for me, it ended too soon. Although it did have the requisite 'happy ever after' for the protagonists and the ends were neatly tied, I wanted more. I hope there might be a sequal and will certainly be reading Diana Green's other books.
