An Alien Storm (Soldiers of Saedo Book 4) by Calla Zae – Review by Jenni Bishop

An Alien Storm (Soldiers of Saedo, #4)An Alien Storm by Calla Zae
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Calla writes a variety of genres from sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, to contemporary romance novels. I have read a few of her books and each one is totally different to the others. This book is a Sci Fi story and the visuals she brings in her writing transports you to another place. I didn’t discover until I was three quarters of the way through that this was the fourth book in the series, but I didn’t feel like I was missing out. But I will be going back and starting at the beginning of the series because I really enjoyed this book.
There is drama and suspense, danger, steamy scenes and romance. The world is well-crafted is engaging and entertaining with fully developed and endearing characters.
Vanessa has a past that has left her with scars both physically and the mentally. She has just found her slice of heaven and then she meets Arkon. Arkon can’t stop thinking about one woman who helped rescue but there is something coming that may keep these two apart.

Daire’s Devils (Daire’s Devils Series Book 1) by Danielle Ackley-McPhail – Review by Melissa Saxton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jump into an action packed high stakes military Sci fi adventure!

this is a well done military Sci fi that starts out with Kat a MC who thinks she’s been dispatched to a boring assignment but it turns into anything but. This multi POV military Sci fi brings so much camaraderie, sarcasm, quick humor and strong attention to detail that you feel immersed in these characters adventure and its hard not to like any of them.

I did feel like the action was a tiny bit rushed so I had to slow down my typical reading style to make sure I got all of the well built details but it is worth it as you can easily miss important bits it you aren’t paying attention.

this adventure is left open with hopefully more story to come as you’ll be invested in the outcome of the story at the end!

A fast paced adventure about a special ops group called Daire’s devils, who have to protect their colony from invaders. But trouble brews when someone tries to play with the prototype aircraft, and it becomes difficult to trust if the enemy is actually from outside or inside. This is a sci-fi/ military thriller which keeps you guessing till the end. The plot is quite engrossing and the characters are likeable. It was an enjoyable fast read.

This story proved to be high stakes and totally immersive from the very start. Kat is an MC that is easy to trust. Her intuition proves to be her best ally. The relationships between the characters was very well done, especially how they dealt with death, even if the life was lost by their hand. The attention to detail by the author was really well done. Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get into military sci-fi. Once you start this story, your whole world is left behind and replaced by this one.

This Sci fi military story isn’t a genre I would normally read but I am glad I gave it a chance because I enjoyed it very much. This book is full of action, great characters, suspense and danger. The author did an exceptional job keeping me entertained and the detail was so vivid that it felt real. I was kept on the edge of my seat wondering who was the enemy, who was working for who? Kat found herself in some dangerous situations, but she didn’t let it stop her from doing her job and what she believes is right. There are many other great characters. When I got to the end I wanted more. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I was pulled in from the beginning and had a hard time putting it down. It was a perfect snow day read.

It’s a fast paced story that is packed full of action. The Daire’s Devils are a special ops team whom is ready to defend their colony from an invasion. Be careful who trust you never know they could be the enemy and you not know it.I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next?

Let me tell you this was a new one for me. Completely out of my comfort zone but something about that synopsis and a few teasers drew me in to an author I am already familiar with. This was for starters an incredibly vivid read, and I could tell that this a passion of the authors and I can appreciate that. Now, I don’t know a thing about RPGs but I will say this has to be a fantastic one to base off of because it just jumps off your kindle. I did find myself struggling from time to time as a person who isn’t already familiar with this world and would maybe suggest some smoothing in the writing in future books to help that for others in my shoes. I enjoyed the entire team of characters and really want to come back for more adventures. This is definitely one to check out if you like military sci-fi loaded with action and adventure.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Daire’s Devils is an exciting military sci-fi novel. It combines influences from the real military with a vibrant future setting that will satisfy even the pickiest sci-fi fans.
The story is gripping from the start. We see Kat, believing she’s been given a boring job to keep her safe only to find that she’s in a lot more danger than she realised. There are levels of secrets and mysteries to solve, and plenty of action along the way. I love Kat’s resourcefulness, and she’s not overskilled to the point of seeming unrealistic.
This book will appeal to fans of Star Trek and other space military stories. There’s great attention to detail, including seemingly mundane aspects like what the showers are like and how the “meat” is produced. This paints a vivid picture, and helps make the story more believable. They also address things like grief and guilt for the ordinary crew members who are killed when a ship is destroyed – something which many stories seem to gloss over.
Daire’s Devils gets five stars from me! This is a captivating story that will take you on an amazing adventure!

This book was amazing. The author’s imagination really showed through the words. All the action that was packed into this book made it even more enjoyable. I am new to this author and their work and I was very entertained. I normally do not read much military based books, but this one was a great addition.
