    One thought on “Overload Flux”

    1. I usually start a book that an author has requested me to read and review with a sigh because I usually just find the book okay and have to come up with something nice to say.BUT NOT WITH THIS BOOK! It was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved how the two main characters are both damaged in different ways and find a safe haven with each other. I'm crazy about the ending of the book and can't wait to read the next book in the series. I would recommend this to any sci-fi, sci-fi romance or just [...]

    2. I really quite enjoyed this. Considering everything that takes place in this book happens in the span of a month at the most, it's a pretty wild ride. I found that the writing was pleasantly error free for the most part and had a smooth flow that kept me bobbing along nicely, though there were a few times when there was a bit of senseless "future speak" thrown in to complicate matters. Sometimes a rope is just a rope, it doesn't need to be a synth-flex bindcord to get the message across. However [...]

    3. Trouble is brewing, investigator Luka Foxe’s hidden mental talent is out of control, Mairwen Morganthur wants to remain an autonomous night shift guard and their only hope for survival lies in revealing their dark secrets and learning to trust one another in this action packed sci-fi romance.Mairwen has hidden herself away from her enemies by hiding her extraordinary skills under the boring guise of a nightshift guard and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as this young wom [...]

    4. 5/5; 5 stars; A+This was a great example of high quality sci-fi romance. The romantic element wasnt the main focus, even though it was strong. The world building was interesting and believable. I am immediately going to buy the next one on the series because I dont want to leave this world!

    5. I was give a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review . always dangerous with me, but here I go honesty is what you'll get!!I'm not going into all the blurb you can read it above :) Here goes .My interest was captured from the first page and didn't wane throughout it's a fast paced Sci-Fi romantic adventure of about 300 pages and I really enjoyed it. Thankfully it was well edited and I didn't find myself tripping over mistakes throughout - this is a pet peeve of mine.The two main cha [...]

    6. Mairwen Morganthur lives undercover as a night watch guard, trying to hide from Citizen Protection Service (CPS) the organisation that bought her, modified her and made her the galaxy's most deadliest assassin. For four years she has been assumed dead to the CPS and she wants to keep it that way.Then one night, she's called to work personal security for crime scene investigator Luka Foxe, who isn't all he seems and in that one chance encounter both their worlds get turned upside down. No longer [...]

    7. There are so many things I liked about Overload Flux. Action and intrigue make up most of the story. There are crime scene investigations, treks over a mystery planet, space battles and lots of jogging. Fast-paced, there is not an idle page in this book! And there is romance. While not a huge part of the book, it is important aspect of the two main characters. Mairwen and Luka are two people with special abilities. Both have cursed their abilities in the past, but when Mairwen and Luka meet and [...]

    8. 3.5✭I enjoyed this mostly. Can't decide whether or not to round up or down for GR ratingr. Why can't we have a larger scale, say, 1-10 or the option for half-stars. Anyhow, 3 1/2 stars meant I quite liked it and she's a new to me author I'll round up!Mairwen is an escaped Death Hunter. She was taken as a child and genetically altered, reprogrammed and subjected to horrendous treatment in the guise of traininguntil she finally escaped 4 years ago. She's gone dark--off the map, living alone, kee [...]

    9. Rule #1 when dealing with Mairwen? If she's quiet you're likely to get hurt. Badly. Absolute love for this book.++++Firstly, not as in love with that cover as I could be. I like Mairwenbut Luka looks toot something. Not like he's been through enough maybe (Mairwen is, I think, in her mid-30's based on contextual data and Luka is in his late 30's/early 40's?). That's a minor gripe since I read this on my Tablet and only had a fleeting glance at the cover before I went to make this post.Secondly, [...]

    10. This is the kinda sci-fi romance I'm looking for! Space battles, fire fights, secret genetic manipulation, futuristic tech I can just barely comprehend, psychic abilities, alien planets, and all that shit with a slow burn romance on top? You fuckin' kidding me?

    11. Originally published at West Coast Book Reviews.I loved the finesse with which Van Natta handles Mairwen and Luka's individual back-stories. Their motivations and challenges are there, clear and sufficient, without overwhelming. There's just enough to explain and engage with Mairwen and Luka without dumping too much emphasis on previous events. It's handled in such a quiet way that every time there's a little more the plot moves forward, not the other way.I also really enjoyed the subtle humour [...]

    12. My expectations were low when I started Overload Flux. It did not take me long to realize how wrong those expectations were. Overload Flux is a riveting adventure that brings two very interesting characters together with unexpected results.Luka Foxe reached too low on a case and now cannot turn his talent off. Mairwen Morganthur is living as low key a life as she can after escaping from the Citizen Protection Service. When Mairwen is assigned as security to Luka things begin to happen.I loved bo [...]

    13. I must admit that I investigated a bit about the book when author contacted me for review request. Although it’s crazy at work and in my private life (as you can see it took almost a week to write a review, and it influenced on the length of my review) I decided to give her a chance.I must admit that I am not a big fan of Sci-fi genre. It is interesting to me to watch it all on TV so I wasn’t sure what to expect from book but in the end it turned out well.I don’t want to write spoilers and [...]

    14. Wow, fast paced story! I found the beginning a bit confusing with the deaths of investigators but once I got into the story, it hooked me! Good story line and great characters!

    15. Reviewed on behalf of The Review Board by Harmony Kent.I received a free mobi copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.Meet Mairwen and Luka, who both have extra-normal talents that they both wish to hide. Human modification is commonplace, and the CPS likes to control and contain anyone with ‘talent’ such as mind reading and tracking, among others. Their investigation into the homicide of two company operatives at a warehouse leads the two erstwhile partners to a supposedly aband [...]

    16. This sci-fi adventure is, for the most part, a fun read. The characters, Luka Foxe and Mairwen Morganthur are very well developed and are quite likable. Luka Foxe is a forensic investigator working for a company called La Plata in the investigative division. He meets Mairwen for the first time in this story. She’s a quiet blonde woman with highly efficient combat skills provided by what is inferred as bio-electronics and genetic engineering. The two of them are investigating the murder of two [...]

    17. I was offered a copy of this to read and review as I do occasionally enjoy a sci fi romance but I got a whole lot more than I was expecting with this book. First of all it's a good full length which I really appreciated and then of course there is the fact that it's a riveting storyline . Add to this complex characters with truly amazing talents and abilities and im sure that many readers will be rendered speechless at the complexities of this book. This book features two very different main cha [...]

    18. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review, and honestly, I loved this book! I started out with my expectations a bit low, but as the story went on, I realized just how much I was enjoying these two very damaged people and their adventures in not only solving a mystery, but in finding love as well. Mairwen Morganthur is hiding out as a night-shift guard, keeping her super-human skills under wraps to avoid detection from the brutal government agency that created her. Luka [...]

    19. I was offered the chance to read and review this book by the author and I am so flattered! I am not the easiest reviewer, but I did really enjoy this book! It's "light" sci-fi, you don't have to love math or know everything about physics, instead it's a combination mystery-action-romance that happens to take place in SPACE! I do not include spoilers in my reviews, so you'll just have to read it if you want the specifics!I found the writing and pacing strong and really liked the main characters. [...]

    20. What a great book! I e-met the author here and she asked if I'd check her book out since we both liked a similar author. I'm so glad I did. It may seem a bit long-winded (in a GOOD way) as compared to most sci-fl romance light and fluffy out there - in other words, there is a real plot, real suspense, well-built characters and the world they live in? Awesome!! I loved, loved, loved the heroine. She had such a horrid past and had no clue how to live. It was so poignant watching her learn, not jus [...]

    21. The author contacted me after seeing I read, and enjoyed, a series by another author who's story was a similar style and asked if I would read her book and write an honest review after. First, let me point out that although this book is in a similar style as the other series, I have to say it is in NO way a knock-off or a copy in any way. They are distinctly different.Now, with that out of the way, it is review time. The basis of the book, and hopefully soon to be full series, is someone in the [...]

    22. The character buildup was done well and the characters remained consistent. I liked that Mairwen was calm yet tough. She was badass but wasn’t the in-your-face-tough-girl type, which can be extremely annoying. She makes you want to know more about her. Luka was interesting. I found him to be quite mysterious, which I liked, but he was also a bit too kind and sweet and gentle. I wanted just a touch of edginess to him.The love story was cute. It was a nice change to have two people who are good [...]

    23. Interesting book to open readers up to the world of the Central Galactic Concordance novels! Upon finishing the book, it gave me the distinct feeling this was more of an introduction/prologue to the world with the addition of a sweet, growing romance between two people with rough pasts. I really liked the hero and heroine, finding their personality types and ages to be unusual for what I have read prior to it(maybe I just haven't read enough books to know), and completely likeable. Likeable is a [...]

    24. Well designed universeThere is some serious depth here. A lot of world building to set up a slow arc over several books, but none of it interferes with the book in progress. Jumpers, ship jackers, trackerslevels of complexity that point to a massive amount of unseen detail work. I appreciate that the author didn't force feed us endless explanations of those details, but I can see their presence.But it all boils down to detective work. And the mystery keeps the plot moving forward. There are some [...]

    25. *A Copy of this Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review*Definitely a true Science Fiction Story set in the future but with a very well written underlying romance going on at the same time. Very often if there is a well written romance that’s all there is, but here the basic story is also very good and very well romance enthusiast you will keep turning the pages to the end and then look forward to the next in the series.It was good to find a female lead who could han [...]

    26. Overload Flux is the start of a series set in the Centeal Galactic Concordance, where Mairwen Morganthur needs to hide from the Citizen Protection Service while relearning to be human, and Luka Foxe, forensic intuitive extraordinaire, needs to learn to control his gift.This is also something of a love story, but I did not personally find it too intrusive. I felt it gave the characters depth and expression.To stay alive and solve the murder they've been assigned, they'll need to learn to trust on [...]

    27. Very good!I'm reading a lot currently, and finding it difficult to find quality stuff that engages me and carries me along the story. This is good space opera and the better for it. Having discarded several over-wrought attempts at this genre recently because they were either appallingly written, totally unbelievable or just jammed with cliches, I'm off to the next in the series!
