Review: Liberation

Liberation Liberation by Sabine Priestley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series gets better and better. This is my favourite book in the series to date. Liberation kicks it up a notch with great characters, questions answered and more questions asked! I love it. Balastar Alder is featured in this book. He is not second string to anyone. He previously minored in the first book as a possible mate with Dani. Balastar is the prototype white knight who does everything perfectly. He doesn't have a syndrome to save the damsel in distress. He is the hero who can save the damsel. To think he could ever play second fiddle is just crazy talk.

Balastar's leading lady is Kit Athorika from the mysterious planet with psi different than generally known. Kit is a perfect match to Balastar. Kit is spunky, all heart and just all around love-able. These two characters are appealing and I really liked them. I rooted for them and their sexual chemistry is hawt. The sex in this story is nicely erotic and yet it is the plot of this story which really captures my attention and makes me stay up until the wee hours reading it.

The mysteries of the Portal Masters are revealed and we finally learn more about the Kit's people. For those who enjoyed Morgan Hawke's Interstellar series, this third book contains similar plot elements just without the kink. Kit and Balastar are well matched as they work to free her people. The story is fast paced with the right amount of action interspersed with sexy time. The showdown with the Portal Masters is what really becomes interesting. It opens this world up to more world building which I hope Ms. Priestley will continue. I am intrigued by the new entity, Orion.

I can see the growth in Ms. Priestley's writing with each subsequent book. The characters are better developed and the plot is tighter. The character dialogue is fluid. The read is smoother as the pace flows up and down in an easy cadence to enspell a reader. The imagery in this story is animated and easy to visualize. The hook at the end of the book is well done. Recommended for space opera readers who enjoy feisty females with a sexy heart-breaker hero.
