Veronica Scott’s Sectors SFR

If you like your Science Fiction Romance toward the Science Fiction end of the scale, you will surely enjoy Veronica Scott’s Sectors series. Set in the human-dominated Sectors, this collection of novels, for the most part loosely connected, generally focuses on military heroes and strong heroines. The Sectors are at war with the Mawreg (the mere site of a Mawreg can drive a human mad) and their client races, including the insectoid and nearly indestructible Shemdylann.

Star SurvivorStar Survivor is the sequel to Scott’s Wreck of the Nebula Dream (think Titanic in space) and focuses on Twilka, the Socialite who demonstrated her inner strength in that book. Star Survivor picks up when Twilka runs into Khevan again, five years after he apparently left her without a word. Needless to say, that’s not quite what really happened, and the two find themselves on the run from Khevan’s D’nvannae Brothers.

.

Star Survivor not only lets us know what has happened to Twilka, Khevan, Nick, and Mara in the years since the wreck, it also explains a lot about the mysterious Red and White Ladies. Although most of Scott’s Sectors novels can be read as stand-alones, this one is best read after Wreck of the Nebula Dream.

.

The Fated Stars puts something of a gender twist on the military hero—in this tale it’s the heroine, Larissa Channer, retired from the Sectors service and now a mercenary with herThe Fated Stars own small ship, the Viking Queen, who is the Warrior. The hero, Samell, is far from a wimp, but he’s definitely in distress, held captive as a fortune teller in a shabby carnival traveling from world to world. When Larissa sees him, she knows something is wrong, and when he manages to pass her a mental message, she takes it upon herself to rescue him.

.

Easier said than done, and even when accomplished, Larissa and Samell face escalating problems, while finding that the psychic abilities of Samell and his people, now a band of ragtag refugees, may make huge contributions to the war against the Mawreg.

I have more Sectors tales waiting on my Kindle. If only I had more time to read . . .
