The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) eMuchverything about it The writing was actually good as in there weren t repeated phrases or conceits and the language wasn t simplistic or tried to be than it was and it was funny The Garden of Happy Endings exciting and what really surprised me was that I had no idea what was going to happen next Usually when I m reading anything I have an idea of where it s going and I am generally not surprised by the result but with this novel I had no idea what Jade was going to do next which was great Not likeverything was a complete surprise but for the most part I wasn t just Campfire expecting something to happen and it did I loved the setting the aliens were all over the top but they were at the same time realistic because they were so well described they had their own culture and dynamics so you understood why Jade had a job as a bouncer in the first place And what I really liked about the aliens was with the Lemnant in particular that nothing was glossed over regarding the uestion you knowveryone has don t deny it about their anatomy This book was mature and serious And the characters were fun Jade herself was awesome she was a total bad ass but she also had very human fears and concerns And she was definitely very female a lot of the time I find sci fi in particular misses the boat when it comes to accurately getting inside a woman s head but Jade was bang on I could be biased because of this but My Little Blue Dress everything she did was what I would do which was kind of strange but definitely why I felt such an affinity for Jade And Megan was great I wasxpecting her to Be A Male Have A a male have a with Jade over something and then they fall in love But nope We get Megan instead and avoid stupid tropes Rock on The other characters had depth and purpose as well they weren t just stand ins for Jade to hang around with And I also liked how Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars everything wasn txplained you were supposed to infer things on your own which I always appreciate Too much xposition is not only boring but kind of insulting Like the Greest None of them really understand how a trans dimensionaltemporal being works so neither do we It S Really Uite Mimetic Anyway If You Like Action s really uite mimetic Anyway if you like action sci fi with a bad ass heroine who DOESN T fall in love then this is the story for you Great world building and so wonderful to have a kick ass and smart woman lead I became aware of this book through the Mobileread forums which I use as one reference and where Stephen Goldin promotes his books vigorously Also the book description at Smashwords included a typically nthusiastic uote from Spider Robinson that had a slight whiff of oversell it was her creators deep insight into female sexuality and spirituality as much as their mastery of action scenes that gave Jade Darcy an uncommon plausibility a realness so often missing in other woman warrior fictions The titular character is a computer augmented supersoldier who works as a kind of bouncer in an alien restaurant on a planet where she is the only member of her species She on the run from other humans for reasons not yet revealed and also suffering from Crazy Love emotional trauma she has recurring rape nightmares one of which opens the novel She has streamlined her life to baressentials trying to avoid forming attachments

this series of 
series of is called The Rehumanization of Jade Darcy which implies that the challenges she faces will force her out of her isolated Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society existence and we may learn what caused it in the first place I can relate to this character and her plightWhat I don t like so much is the way the problem of getting from one planet to another has been handled Space travel is provided as a paid service by a mysterious multidimensional being called the Greest who uses this power to shape the patterns ofvents to his liking Basically you pay your ticket step into a room on one planet and step out on another I guess it is no worse than the handwavey hyperdrives of other sf books but it seems to take the fun out of space travelAnyway in this novel Jade Darcy nlists on a suicide mission to assassinate a military commander helps a businesswoman to negotiate a trade agreement and liberates an occupied planet Also she saves the life of a tiny animal and gets drunk I liked some part of the book a lot I thought the world building was uite clever and the aliens interesting But I didn t like the heroine she seemed selfish and irresponsible. Learns there's another human being on Cablans a human being with the potential to xpose Jade's mysterious past with possibly fatal resultsAll of a sudden a suicide mission looks positively appetizing. ,

Galaxy It s a place where interstellar commerce is it s main source of income and due to where it s at a source of the scourge of the universe Most science fiction that I read as a setting or foreign planet that feels very much like arth with just technology This place doesn t It truly feels like a different place with different cultures with different species Everything co The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs exists on this planet no matter how fantastical From humans to insect type aliens to aliens that look like mythological creatures Stephen Goldin paints a good picture with well thought out descriptions without bogging the story down by being overly wordyCharacters The central character in this book is Jade Darcy She is a CARC computer augmented reflex commando who has jumped away from that life for some reason She isssentially an outcast among humans and hasn t see another in around 7 years There are a lot of other characters that are introduced but the focus is Moreno entirely on Jade Her character really grows from the beginning of this book to thend and her shifts come from the most unlikely sources From beginning to Monsieur Pain end this journey is Jade s journeyThe other charactersxcept for the other human Megan Cafferty all have xotic makeups and have their own
way of dealing 
of dealing the other species around them One race has you trying to out maneuver being humble and another has you slinging insults Just don t tell any Yo Mama jokesthat might start a war They are all well thought out and aren t just names on the paper One of my favorite aspects of this book is that ach species has their own little uirks and their own little things that can help us identify on a personal level with What If each of these species Everyone has a role to play and they play them wellThe only character that I didn t uite get was this manipulative four dimensional being called The Greest It s not determined if it s a he or she or it Or what it s role really is or if playing people is something that it just likes to do I m hoping of it will bexplained in the seualPlot There are several stories that The Exhaustion Breakthrough each kind of have their own beginning middle andnd They are all inter woven masterfully and flow from one into another in the most natural of ways It starts out with a nightmare that Jade always has involving rape I m not sure but I think that might be a reason why she s on the outskirts of the universe and went awol in the military It s not really The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good explained or I just missed it With thend of that she s working for Rix Supplemental Book essentially as a bouncer at hisstablishment that caters to Hark!
