Kurzbeschreibung

REVISED Edition (Oct 2012): Tal dar Aune, a powerful shape-shifting mage, comes to Earth on a desperate quest to find a mysterious woman before his nemesis destroys her. Little does Tal know the “helpless” female he’s come to save is the key to peace on his war-torn world…or that he’ll long to touch her, take her, make her his.

Unaware of her royal roots or alien origins, Charlotte spends her first thirty years on Earth. Then Tal bursts into her life with all the subtlety of a thunder storm. He’s rude, arrogant, and easily the most desirable man she’s ever encountered. With a ruthless madman hot on their heels, they can’t afford to be distracted by the attraction rapidly growing between them, but the emotions are too powerful to ignore.

Gestaltsumwandler, Magier, Hare bewegender Mann? Es war mir einfach zu viel zu schnell erzählt. Eine Frau wird durch ein Portal transportiert und landet auf der Erde, aber die Reise war auch jergendwie durch die Zeit. Dann wird sie verfolgt weil was weiss ich warum... Nope, nichts für mich.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Splendid Sci-Fi Romance 13. Januar 2013
Von Sophia Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a nice blend of the Sci-Fi with the paranormal along with the romance. The blurb is what originally drew me to the book and I was not disappointed.

The story opens with the High Queen of Ontariese making a personal sacrifice to do what she must for the Kingdom which is on the brink of civil war. The Queen uses her mage power to send her twin daughters through a portal hiding them in two separate places to be retrieved when they are needed. Many years later, the war continues with no chance of relief and an evil mage plots the downfall of all for his own greed for power. Tal, a mage, Trey, his brother, and Vee, Tal's mentor set out to find him and also foil the evil mage's plot that takes him to earth.

Then the scene changes to present day earth where Charlotte sits in her mountain cabin contemplating her future of moving to Seattle, completing the Bar exam, and getting a job with a nice law firm. That same night, an odd lightning storm changes her fate when it brings Tal dar Aune, an Ontarian, into her life.

Tal is mystified as to why this earth woman, Charlotte is of interest to his enemy, but he vows to keep her safe and with him until the answers can be found. Tal and Charlotte race for their lives even as Charlotte fights to break away from him at first, but then the clues start building up and all lead to one thing- Charlotte is much more than she seems and may be the answer for all of Ontariese.

The plot kept moving at a good pace even as the author deftly fit in the explanation to the Ontariese world. I love Sci-fi for its creative world-building and this story offered the interesting concept of magically gifted people and a matriarchal-style society. It was exciting during the cat and mouse chases to keep Charlotte out of danger and the slow build up of her relationship that went beyond attraction with Tal. I loved the little twists that occurred a few times to keep things from getting blase'. Tal and Charlotte were stumped a few different times when they tried to be together.

But I think my favorite part of the book was Charlotte herself. At first, she seemed to be a human woman who has known heartbreak and is lonely, but her exposure to Tal and the other Ontariese along with their trouble shows she is no marshmallow. She doesn't allow them to bully her, but at the same time she's not prone to act stupidly or get whiny when her whole world changes on her. She is saddened by her losses and fearful of change, but she goes with it and that's my kind of gal. I like that she doesn't play around with Tal. She might disagree with him- actually she does disagree with him and frequently- but this doesn't make her sulk or have to much pride to meet him half-way or wish to mend things. Yes, she had gifts, but it was fun the way her human law degree was what served her almost as well.

Tal is a strong male who because of his talent as a mage has a lot to learn still. He is strong on his traditions and has to be shown that it is the principles underlying the traditions that are the more important. He has had a lot of loss and sorrow in his life and he wants Charlotte, but he must learn the value of compromise and the learn that others without his talents have value before he can achieve what he most desires.

So all in all, it was a fab sci-fi PNR romance and I look forward to the rest of the series. I hope to get Trey's story and more of the other characters too.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lame Rehash of the Same Old Sci Fi Romance Plots 13. April 2013
Von Sea Laughing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A Queen from another world sends her twins to safety by separating them and hiding them on other planets. Sound familiar?

According to the note at the end of this book, "Taken by Storm" was named Best Fantasy/Science Fiction Romance of the year by Romance Reviews Today. That's sad proof that most of the genre is poorly written and unoriginal. I love both science fiction and romance, but it pains me to admit that most of these books are substandard.

SPOILER ALERT!

This book starts out as an overly complex "Star Wars" clone, then switches to the worn out "Mars Needs Women" plot about halfway through. The ending was just plain ridiculous. Essentially, the heroine ends a bitter multi-generational conflict by telling both sides they have valid points and they need to compromise, and everybody just accepts her decree. It would be nice if life worked that way, but let's get real--murdering fanatics aren't likely to see reason that easily.

The first half of the book features the hero explaining his world and society to the heroine. The main action takes place behind the scenes, and the reader learns about it when the hero tells the heroine the story. Apparently, nobody ever told this author the well-known axiom, "Show, don't tell."

The heroine has no real motivation and waffles between trying to escape the hero and falling madly into his embrace. If an obvious alien took me captive and told me he'd die unless I willingly allowed him to play with my naked body, he'd be a dead man. At best, I'd offer him a ride to the nearest bar and give him a few bucks to pick up a prostitute, but it struck me as totally unrealistic that this woman agrees--especially on the first anniversary of the death of her family. And if someone burnt down my beloved mountain cabin and offered me a locket with a picture of my dead family as compensation, there's no way in hell I'd say, "Aw, that's really sweet and thoughtful of you," which is basically the heroine's reaction to this scenario.

The sex scenes were frequent and detailed, which might explain why it won an award, but since I thought the heroine was a stupid wimp, those scenes didn't really strike me as all that hot. To me, these characters were like puppets being moved around at the author's whim: "Oh, it's time for a sex scene." The entire plot was too contrived, and the characters were bland stereotypes who didn't react like real people.

Much of the plot made no sense. The heroine is told she has to choose a man to avoid being claimed by some random guy because there are 200 men to every women, yet another woman character is completely ignored by the men. The bad guy has an entire collection of pregnant women in his dungeon, so they couldn't have been all THAT scarce. Also, only boys are trained as mages, even though most of the women portrayed seemed to have a variety of powers. Yet the heroine is immediately accepted as a mage-in-training, and rises to a position of authority within an extremely short time.

The author robs her tale of all suspense by revealing the heroine's parentage in the prologue. I guess she figures suspense is created by telling the reader what's going to happen, and then making them wait for it.

The heroine is supposed to be grieving over the loss of her family, but almost the only time she thinks about her dead husband is when she's having sex with the hero, when she compares his stellar lovemaking to her husband's prim, lackluster efforts. She never seems to miss her baby at all. I got no sense that this woman was suffering a major loss at all. It seemed like the author had read somewhere that making the characters suffer would win the reader's sympathy, so she tells us they'd lost loved ones, but she didn't have a clue how to actually SHOW it. There was just no depth whatsoever to any of the characters.

Frankly, I probably won't bother reading another book by this author ever again. If you have nothing else to read and you're completely desperate, then I recommend this book. It's better than the ingredient list on a box of cereal, but just barely. The sex scenes were okay if you're just into gratuitous sex, but if you want true romance, realistic characters, and a plot that makes sense--keep looking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sci-Fi meets Paranormal Romance 28. Juli 2013
Von RebeccaJ1973 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book was one I kept reading long after my body demanded sleep. I loved the mix of Science Fiction with all the Paranormal abilities. Throw in a bit of Romance and a touch of Law, and you end up with Taken By Storm!

Of course, it always helps to have a range of relationships in a story. You have a love story between the two leading characters, several familial relationships with a great divergence in strength and content, a mentor/protege' relationship, and then one truly evil villain to add lots of torment to them all.

I particularly enjoyed how the relationship between the two lead characters began early in the book, but in such a way as to feel realistic. Tal was the typical big, strong hero protecting his little "helpless" woman, while still showing enough tenderness toward Charlotte as to soften the edges making him lovable. While Charlotte showed us a woman who was strong on her own, yet still willing to lean on her man when she needed him. And, of course, like all great heroines, she showed she was not nearly so weak as Tal believed.

It was fun to see how the two, whose cultures were so dissimilar, had to learn to compromise and change to adjust their vastly different views to make their love workable. I also tremendously enjoyed all the things Tal could do with his Mystic abilities. In fact, many of the characters had extra powers, and it was entertaining seeing how each was used...for good or for evil.

Obviously, you can't get too scientific with most Science Fiction, and this is another book that would not stand up well under scrutiny of true science. But, since this is the type of book you read just for fun, enjoy the story for what it is...Fiction.

I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Sci-Fi Romance 6. September 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the second book in the series. Skillfully written, with interesting characters, it keeps the reader's attention.

The planet of Ontariese has been in civil war for 89 years. Previously a matriarchal monarchy, the government splits into two warring sects following the dissolution of the marriage of the queen, E'Lana Aune and her husband Fro dar Joon. The followers of the queen, known as the Traditionalists believe in keeping the teachings of laws written hundreds of years ago. The followers of the husband, called Reformationists, believe in modernizing the laws. The leader of the Reformationists is the cruel mage, Dez de Joon. The leader of the Traditionalists is Roe Aune, but he is a minor character. His sons, Trey and Tal are much more interesting.

The life of Charlotte Layton is changed forever when the space ship of the gorgeous alien, Tal Aune crashes near her mountain cabin in Aspen. Tal has come to earth searching for Dez dar Joon. Dez dar Joon is on earth searching for Charlotte. When Tal shows up outside Charlotte's cabin near death, she saves his life and becomes an unwilling participant in the mission to capture Dez dar Joon.

I wish the book would have covered what happened to E'Lana Aune after she saved her twins by transporting them to another planet. I also wish it would have told us whether Lilt dar Joon and his son Lor, turned out to be good guys or bad guys. Perhaps these questions will be answered in book 2.

I recommend this book. I also recommend her series called "Rebel Angels".

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hmmm....it's ok 1. September 2013
Von Jen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
First of all I am not a big fan of stories featuring witches, mages, and mystics, so my review may be a little biased. This is the story of a young woman whose life changes drastically when she is kidnapped by a hot mystic alien from another realm. There is a lot of action from the very start, the author puts together a decent sentence, and the book stays true to its path. I found the creative elements of the story copious, detailed, and interesting, but coupled with a heated political unrest it was overwhelming in some spots.

The lead male and female fell a little flat to me and some conversations were confusing you didn't know if certain facts were just assumed or if you missed a previous conversation. The steamy scenes were a let down, there were so many exciting directions the author could have gone but took the boring way out....that part was a yawn. The bad guy was of course suitably evil and managed to reek havoc and escape capture too many times. I liked the book but I don't know if I liked it enough to continue. I am goona let it sink in for a few days and decide.

If you have read anymore in the series please advise me on wether you think I will enjoy moving forward! Enjoy!
