      Enemy Within actually has substance, says NU with surprise LOL An insta bond between leads Ari Rose and Cullin Seaghdh, complete with Romancelandia inner dialogue Can this be I ve never felt this way before and a clich kidnapping premise caused me grave doubts, but Enemy Within shocked the pants off me when it sprouted a plot Yes, a plot, ladies and gentleman With real live action scenes and everything Stuff combusts, explodes, shoots and blows up Awesome While Ari s growth and to some extent, S [...]

      I m very picky when it comes to the Sci Fi romance books I really don t read all that many of them, with the exception of some authors, such as Linnea Sinclair, Ann Aguirre and recently Gini Koch But now another Sci Fi debut author has risen, and one that I recommend to any Sci Fi Romance fan Her name is Marcella Burnard, and her Enemy Within was a rip roaring fabulous read for me.Alexandra Ari Idylle is a former space captain who was a prisoner for three months at the hands of a nasty alien rac [...]

      This book rates as my least favourite futuristic novel up to date There were so many things I disliked about it I will list the main ones.Firstly, I found the story confusing I have read other futuristic novels most of which head right into the story But the authors write it in a way that the setting and the backdrop starts to piece itself together fluidly, as the novel progresses It was not so in this novel I couldn t understand what was happening Which was made worse by the heroine, Ari s, act [...]

      sigh I spent a good amount of time this morning working on a coherent review of this book And lost it when I tried to post after failing to notice the wifi failed _ I m not going to spend another half hour trying to recreate it.I liked this book but didn t love it It was a compelling story, I read it one sitting and I m glad I read it, but it didn t wow me I liked the main characters, Ari and Cullin, but I didn t love them I liked their romance but didn t love it and wasn t fully convinced of th [...]

      3.5 stars.I deeply enjoyed this space opera novel with a romance novel tucked into it The world building, characterization, and slight politicking all came together like a good space opera And goodness knows I adore space opera.The romance was a little harder to work in at first The start of it felt a little bit clunky and could have been skipped altogether e.g hero and heroine have bonding moment over her PTSD and he comforts her through it this could ve worked better without overtly trying to [...]

      This book is super dark and really sad There s love from afar, torture, betrayal It was hard getting through some of the book toward the end.

    7. Snarktastic Sonja on said:

      I ve really struggled with this review I enjoyed this book but I just felt it was missing something And, I feel that this review can t be adequate unless I can tell you WHAT the book was missing And, I can t It is just something.Make no bones about it this is a romance novel first, science fiction second and just barely The two main characters start over thinking about each other from the minute the story begins So, it becomes not a matter of will they or won t they but rather why the heck don [...]

      It started off slow and stinted, but this book grew on me like crazy And looking back I think the distant, cold and confusing start might have been on purpose to showcase Ari s state of mind.Ari has been just released after being a prisoner of bug like non humanoid aliens for 3 months She endured torture of various kinds, but when she s finally free the home and life she fought to stay alive for are taken from her anyway by her superiors Since the Chekydrans are quite good at re gen technology a [...]

      Enemy Within is a futuristic Sci fi romance which I expected to be typical but was pleased to discover had a satisfactory level of depth, with both the plot and the characters There was a relationship, but it seemed to take of a back seat to everything else going on in the story.That being said, there were still some issues I had with this At the very beginning of the book, there was a scenario in which the characters needed to high tail it out of a dangerous situation Instead they took a few m [...]

      The cover is the first thing that drew me to the book Yes, I fully admit I m a sucker for an awesome cover and when I found out it was SciFi I knew I was hooked So much so that I read it in a day, even with my busy schedule, sacrificing sleep to complete the story.The story appeals to the scifi geek in me with enough otherworldly descriptions and races and the romance reader with just enough connection between the heroine and hero to satisfy Though the story is of a journey for the heroine, Ari [...]

      I tore through this book The plot is fast moving and intense enough that I REALLY wanted to finish it Plenty happening, no slow parts I was definitely entertained throughout.So why only 3 stars The romance storyline irked me And I m a romance reader I really wanted to like it, and there were bits that I enjoyed, like the shared fencing hobby But I just don t find a page one instant attraction when the hero is acting like a d bag to be believable I liked the hero a lot so than March in the simil [...]

    12. Angela James on said:

      3.5 stars, actually I think this book will be popular with the dedicated sci fi romance reader than with the casual reader The story opening is a bit hard to follow, and I liked the heroine s emotional journey better than I actually liked their romance I actually felt a little awkward about their romance, for some reason I think because there was such a dichotomy between what the hero is supposed to be like and how he acts with her Almost too much of a dichotomy, so I felt uncomfortable with wh [...]

      Oh great of those books The one where the author just throws the reader into the narrative with no preparation whatsoever

      This is a first rate SF romance, which I highly recommend to readers of SF, Futuristic Fantasy and Romance.Ari Captain Alexandra Rose , was an upcoming starship captain when she was captured by the Chekydran, a non humanoid race at war with her people After months of interrogation, she s unexpectedly released, but finds that her homecoming is not the welcome she imagined Stripped of her command, Ari is relegated to scientific missions with her father Her own people don t trust her any , and, eve [...]

      Wow and damn, I want the sequel right now I stayed up until 3am to finish this book, could NOT put it down even though I swore I was going to bed at midnight and read the rest the next day.Where to begin with this review Burnard packed a whole lot into ENEMY WITHIN There s so much to like about it the absolutely amazing world building, the fascinating characters, the cracking pace helped by the fact that EVERY chapter ended on a hook and made you read just one , the twisting plot filled with te [...]

      Ari was captured and tortured by enemy forces for three months She is unexpectedly released, but after months spent recovering she is stripped of her command and sent on a scientific mission with her father No one trusts her any longer, afraid she was only released to spy upon her own people Then her father s ship is hijacked by what appears to be a band of pirates Ari quickly learns that the pirate leader, Cullin is than just a pirate She is irritated by his arrogance and yet attracted to his [...]

      I really enjoyed this book It had the perfect blend of science fiction and romance I kept telling myself I d read just one chapter, and ended up reading two or three Then, when I put it down, I always had the urge to rush back and read just a little bit always a sign of a good book.The only reason I didn t give it five stars was because there were about a dozen instances where characters jumped to conclusions and, even after rereading, I couldn t figure out how they reached them Also, in the e [...]

      My rating 4.5 starsWow This book was a very interesting read, full of action and emotional exploration within the heroine s past and torturous experiences It was also very different from my usual reading choices I ve read maybe a handful of futuristic sci fi novels but this one really pulled me in, especially the double innuendo bantering between Ari and Cullin Those two just clicked for me right from the moment they came into contact with each other in the story All of the character s had very [...]

    19. A.R. Norris on said:

      Overall I was very happy with this book I had to really put effort into suspending belief in Cullin s voice powers and probably would ve like explaination or any really how this magical power worked After I managed to get over that bit, the story moved along well.Ari and Cullin had a great romantic chemistry I loved the internal conflict Ari faces with her past as a military prisoner I thought it was quirky the way Cullin had a secret crush on hertely a different and pleasant twist from the reg [...]

      I was excited to read this as it was a new author She is an online friend of mine, so I wanted to see if she had any writing chops YES I am not really a SciFi fan so much, nor am I a Romance novel fan, so I was a bit wary of it to begin with However, her characters were very well defined and most interesting and the story was awesome I truly wanted when it ended The only negative for me and this is ONLY because I am not so hot on SciFi is trying to remember names and places when they are foreig [...]

      I made the mistake of starting this book last night at 11pm I read until I fell asleep reading around 2am I woke up at 7 30 and kept reading I did nothing of any use until I d finished it It s that awesome It s got the feel of Shards of Honour meets Games of Command Perfect.

    22. Carien on said:

      I love this book It s got everything you want from a SciFi spaceships, intrigue, nasty aliens and firefights Add an intense and complicated romance to this mix and you got a story that sizzles and captivates Ari is a character that s been damaged, but luckily not broken and it makes you cheer her on and hope she will get a happy end in both love and her normal life Some plot twist were a bit too obvious, but that didn t spoil the story for me, I must say I can only add that I hope Burnard will w [...]

      I have a very special place in my heart for space opera sci fi romance type books I don t think I have given less than 4 stars on any of books of that genre I guessed that I have been picking the best of the best for the past few years though and I really thought surely my luck would run out with this book starts off with a very clich kidnapping and I was really expecting the whole I fell in love with my kidnapper Stockholm syndrome type formula but it didn t fall into the typical tropes you wou [...]

      Enemy Within by Marcella BurnardParanormal Romance Nov 2nd, 20104 starsI was excited to get my hand on Enemy Within because I am a big futuristic fan And this story both exceeded my expectations and left me with mixed feelings If you love science fiction this book will largely thrill you But if you are a big romance fan this story may be a bit too involved especially if you like lighter romances.In Enemy Within, the strong yet emotionally fragile heroine is recovering from being tortured by alie [...]

      For me this book was very hard to assign a rating to as it was good and wasn t bad and I was very intrigued in the story but somewhere along the way i was lost and just wanted it to end then it did and it was like what In the beginning it makes sense that everything is jumbled because of what Ari went through and her inability to trust everyone around her and even herself It even makes sense that she fell so hard for Cullin because he was the first person to make her feel safe after everything t [...]

    29. Leah on said:

      I liked this book a lot I have to admit, the love story was much prominent than I expected, but it was still an engaging story This book reminded me of Song of Scarabaeus, except it had less of the sci fi jargon and focus on the love story I would call this book a pnr, but be warned that there isn t much action wink wink until quite a ways into the book.Disclaimer I am a sucker for kidnapping love stories I think maybe this indicates that there is something wrong with me psychologically, but I [...]

      I started out loving this book, convinced it would be at least 4 stars I m not sure exactly when, but at some point I started not loving it quite as much And then by the end I found myself thoroughly disappointed However, this book did have its good points, and I enjoyed reading it for the most part One thing I will say, though, is that sometimes it was a little confusing Either it would switch viewpoints abruptly, or something would be happening that was not quite explained, so it would take me [...]
