First I’m going to start by saying that I don’t usually get into Sci-Fi, I don’t hate it but it isn’t my first choice but when Greta asked for reviews I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed Greta’s short in our Words to Music anthology and I’d read some of Die a Dry Death on authonomy so I was excited about reading The Iron Admiral. The fact there is romance and a hunky leading man didn’t influence my decision at all... yeah right. J
The Iron Admiral is a wonderfully descriptive, action packed, love filled tale. Greta has taken me to different worlds with great characters and fantastic imagination. Even the unusual names which would usually put me off weren’t an issue here. This is a well written excellent story and I have to admit I’m wanting more Sci-Fi now!
The flight scene in Chapter Fifteen was like a movie in my head, in fact the whole story is like this. Greta paints such a vivid picture which captivates the mind and will keep you absorbed. I have picked this action scene as my one of my favourites but this exciting story doesn’t leave you wanting more... except of course more from Allysha and Saahren. I am very happy to know there is a planned sequel.
I haven't given The Iron Admiral a shower curtain sizzle rating – not because it doesn’t have any because it does – but because I don’t want to give the wrong impression about this story. Yes it sizzles but in lots of different ways.
