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.

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.

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!

People always say, don’t judge a book by its cover, yet everyone does, at least to an extent. I know I do! So, when I saw the cover, I was intrigued, when I read the synopsis, I was immediately hooked, and reading the story, I was absolutely not disappointed. The author has this way of writing that just draws you in, like you’re standing in a corner listening to and watching the events as they occur. I adore Kat as a character, strong-willed, independent, and just a general BA woman. I also adore the teamwork and the friendships between the Devils. They are just so genuine, and I know at least I want to have relationships like those in my life. I adored this book, and the world it was in!

Journeys Through Collection: Volume 1-3Journeys Through Collection: Volume 1-3 by James Talisman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think that this collection is a great read. I have read all three so far in the series and was glued to the pages. I find that the author has a very unique world created. The characters although fiction are relatable. The story flows real well and the backstory adds to all.

Book one intorduces us to the Multiverse. Journey’s through SpaceTime.
I found the concept of a mulitverse quite original and thought that the author did a good job of laying out all the factions.I didnt have a problem following the story through the various parts of the multiverse and thought that it was very well organised and presented. I have to admit that this book had me glued to the pages cause I couldnt put it down till I read what was gonna happen next.I will defnintely read more from this author in the future.

Book two continues the adaventure. Journey’s Through TimeSpace.

The whole concept of a MultVerse really brings a complexity to the story and he fractions within the story really keep the reader enticed and eager to see how things will unfold. I found the complexity of the fractions to be unique. I really liked the opertunity to be able to continue reading this series. The concept of time travel and a MultiVerse really grab the readers.
I really like the tie to Atlantis with Mark and the twists with him. I really will read more from this author in the future.

Book thee again draws the reader further into the Multiverse. Journey’s Through All Creation.

I like how the author is able to have just the right amount of drama and managed to put in a little romance, just a little. I also like how the characters pasts influence the story and how everything is entwined. I also like the character build up and how the author is able to keep the story flowing and unique. I also loved the cliff hanger at the end and cannot wait to see how this series will continue and perhaps grow.

I have read books by this author previously and I really like her imaginative and creative writing style so when I saw this book I was looking forward to starting and I wasn’t disappointed. Again the author was able to capture my imagination from the very beginning. Her attention to detail means that I can vividly imagine the setting for her stories with ease. The story definitely had the ‘gaming’ feel about it which made it really interesting to read. The characters are interesting to read about and there was some good banter which added a fun element to the story.
Overall I really enjoyed the story and would recommend.

I have to say that with each book I just fall deeper and deeper into this book created world and am not disappointed. I really like the author’s concept of a multiuniverse. I like to delve into scifi and fantasy and this was just what the doctor ordered. This being the third book in the series added to the build up of my reading of it and as I have said I was not disappointed.

I enjoyed this book. It was my second attempt to get back into the science fiction and space genre! The writing and world-building were good and did engross you quickly into the story of Corp. Kat Alexander and her fellow devils! It is definitely a fast pace and adventurous novel to get your hands on! The interactions between Corp Alexander and her crewmates, especially with quick-witted Sgt Scotch, adorable Spec, and the hell water Sgt Daire, you are definitely going to want to know what happens next. The only struggle I had with this book was the military jargon that was in the first half of the story. It felt like every other word describing the surroundings, weapons, ships, had me raising an eyebrow asking “wait what?”. However, after a while, the jargon seems to disappear and it isn’t so much. It is an enjoyable science fiction book to read if you are looking to explore the genre.

Daire’s Devils by Danielle Ackley-McPhail is officially on my list of favorites! This is an awesome military sci-fi adventure! When I decided to read this book, I really didn’t know how I would like it. I’m not at all familiar with the military and it has never been a big interest to me. I can now say I am hooked. This book kept me engaged and I can’t think of one character that I didn’t absolutely love by the end of it. I was worried about the multiple points of view aspect since I don’t usually enjoy that method of storytelling but it was very easy to keep track of all that was going on. I loved, loved, loved the banter between the characters and Scotch and Kat are in my heart! The plot was great and the action kept me on my toes. I laughed hard and was brought near tears reading about this team. I can’t wait to read a follow-up. I was so upset when I realized I had come to the end of the book. Please hurry up with that next book Mrs. Ackley-McPhail!

This is a new author for me and from the cover I thought “Gears of War” video game immediately. As a huge fan of those books, I was pretty sure that I would enjoy this one as well. It did not disappoint. Just as with that series this is also full of action, adventure, and military science fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that there is more to come. I thought that she did a wonderful job describing the characters, especially the foes and forces around them. This is something that is usually not easy for most sci-fi authors in my opinion. She did a phenomenal job. I didn’t want to put this story down and once I reached the end I was begging for more. I loved all the action that took place and found myself vividly imaging it as I went along. I highly recommend this book, especially if you are into the military sci-fi video games. I would also say this would be a great read for any middle school readers that are into video game genre books.

This is my first book by Danielle Ackley-McPhail. I was not sure what I was getting myself into. The cover looked like a comic book cover type. I found myself immersed in the storyline. The story had so much detail so that the mind’s eye could visualize what the author wanted me to see. The characters were interesting and developed. There was a lot of action, almost too much. The adventure did seem like it was rushed, but it was still a great story. This story has some military tones to the story but the action and adventure is what kept this moving right along. I do caution that maybe times you read fast but watch out because you may have overlooked a detail. I highly recommend this book. It is a great read to get lost in to leave the world behind for a short time.

This book has sci-fi and action. It is a military story.

Give ’em a good thrashing! Allied Forces—including the 142nd Mobile Special Ops Team, often known as Daire’s Devils—stand poised to protect the disputed colony planet Demeter against military invasion and corporate exploitation at the furthest reaches of the cosmos. When those seeking to steal the top-secret plans of AeroCom’s new prototype flagship, the Cromwell, infiltrate the ranks, Corporal Katrion Alexander, the Devils’ newest member, finds herself up against an unexpected threat: synthetic operatives indistinguishable from live people. She and the Devils must stop this new menace, but how can they do it when the opponent has a familiar face?

I loved this story. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read the rest of her books.

This book was a good read, and a fun one in fact I would like to say. The book gave us engaging characters. And the author knew how to keep us as the reader interested, and our toes in fact. I loved how each event led to something new, and questions of trusting your own constantly arose. Fantastic read!

I loved how the book is about a military, which was different from past books I have read that have been more less in the sci-fi genre. I found that alone gave the plot and atmosphere a different take rather than I would expect the story to be. The group we got to read about, I would say there were so realistic to me, they defended what they had to, no matter what. They were courageous and stood for something.

Something that I also really enjoyed was the constant questioning as I briefly touched on. I found that within this group there reasons for trust issues. And made myself wonder who could be a snake and who is actually true to their word? The story kept flowing really well and I could not put it down!

Wonderful and action packed read! I loved this book and this amazing author and I do highly recommend you read this book, as well as look into works by this author. They crafted this book so perfectly as well, it was one I really had a good time reading, and I will be looking forward to read more of their work!

Kat is a badass when she finds they have been infiltrated by a force that has taken over top ranks to get to their secrets. The challenge is what happens when they are the face of the ones you know? Having been booted from her ship and running flight control, she doesn’t let anything hold her back. Written with power to grab you right from the start, you are sucked right into the story and don’t want to miss anything. Kat is such a strong character that she is very relatable. The other characters are well-written to be support players. A few glitches in plot help to give it just the right thrill, such as Commander Glei not showing up in the reflection and his fingers always plucking at something. I loved this book. Though not my usual genre, this author has gained a fan. Get out and read this one. Click that button. You’ll find it’s worth it.

Daire’s Devils by Danielle Ackley-McPhail is an epic military sci-fi story full of action and adventure. I know from reading this story, and the intro that came at the beginning, that Daire’s Devils is set in, and based on a RPG game and it’s ‘world’- and I definitely think this would make a great game, or even a movie/series.
The author’s detailed descriptions brought this futuristic space adventure to life, and I loved all the action and adventure. The characters were really great, and it was easy to get absorbed by the story, although there were parts where the story felt rushed, or skimmed over- but overall, it was an enjoyable read.
So, if you love sci-fi military adventures that take you to the farthest reaches of the galaxy to join a crack squad who are tasked with defending a colony who is under threat of invasion, then this is definitely the story for you. Add in some hidden agendas, politics, espionage, and treachery…. and things get interesting.
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Danielle Ackley-McPhail!

The characters are hard not to like and they find themselves in plenty of action as they face an unexpected menace. Defending the colony planet in a plot that has some interesting concepts. The stakes are high but not all the threads are woven to finality leaving the door open for the other books in the series. This story is fast paced full of action. At times it felt a little rushed, so I had to reread some things as there was a lot of information to absorb.

This was a really good fast paced adventure. The author does an amazing job of describing the scenes to make the world out in space seem as realistic as possible. You feel yourself caught up in the story and guessing the motives of every character you meet.
It’s a story about a special ops group called Daire’s devils. They are at the far ends of space protecting the colony from invaders. It seems a straight forward job until someone trys to get their hands on a new prototype aircraft. The problem is is the enemy someone from the outside or someone within their ranks.

It becomes a guessing game trying to unravel who is behind it all and leaves you feeling throughout that story that you can’t trust anyone even the people you think you know.
