Just Finished Reading... On a Rogue Planet by Anna Hackett
Beware for anyone starting On a Rogue Planet: make sure you clear your schedule for the day and have a few coffees in preparation for a late night, because you will not want to put this book down.
I've read a few cyborg romances where the man/machine struggles with his humanity and coming to understand love and how to be with someone in an emotionally healthy relationship, but Anna has blown all of those out of the water.
Xander was a perfect mix of strength, vulnerability and turmoil, while Mal was tough, brave and resourceful without being over-the-top obvious about it, or straying toward masculine.
Best of all, this isn't just a romance with a sci-fi setting, there's an intriguing and suspenseful story here that stands on its own merit, taking us on a desperate journey across a wide universe.
I haven't managed to read all of the Phoenix Adventure books yet, and while they were already on my to-buy list, this book has definitely moved them up to "need-to-buy-NOW."
Really looking forward to finding out where the Phoenix Adventures are going to take me next, and highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a perfect mix of sci-fi, romance, action and adventure.
