K.N. Salustro has also written a spinoff novella called The Arkin Races, and is now officially moving into fantasy. Time to write some proper dragons into the books for a bit.

Reviews of Unbroken Light by K.N. Salustro

Erica Lane reviewed on Jan. 17, 2016

Lissa has been taken prisoner by the Seventh Sun and subjected to wild experimentation. Lance is on his way to the rescue.

It doesn't really seem possible, but Lissa proves herself even more awesome than in book one. She is resistant to the mind control they are trying to inflict on her, and she survives a procedure that no one thought possible. More and more this character manages to surprise me. She has grown and is even more fierce than before. I can't imagine how she'll end up when this series is concluded.

This installment gave more specifics on the Awakening process. It's an intriguing scifi/mad scientist sort of addition that really shines in this tale of intergalactic war. With vivid descriptions, I truly felt immersed in this universe. Some of the writing is downright beautiful, despite the dark times these characters are living in. There are also some very interesting looking aliens, which are always a nice touch in scifi.

I felt I got to know and like Lance more in this installment. He has more depth and is more interesting than in book 1. I also got to know Jason a little better, and I found his actions to be just as noble as our other heroes, even if he still seems to be a minor character. I also enjoyed that the author keeps the main characters on task, not allowing Lissa and Lance to fall for each other and go pawing at each other between star systems. It drives me crazy when the action is slowed for a (predictable) romantic subplot, and I'm grateful that doesn't happen here. It just goes to prove that a man and woman can work together without it becoming a lust festival. :)

The Seventh Sun and Star Federation haven't yet resolved their differences, so I'm expecting more from this series and am anxiously awaiting the outcome. Oh, and I love those arkins. :)

I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
