Review: Collision Course by Helena Maeve

Eve’s last night on the job turns complicated when former flame and part-time warlock Neil makes an explosive return—asking for her help.

With apocalypse by asteroid due in a fortnight, the last thing Eve Karvan should be worrying about is her paycheck. Yet one last shift at the Natural History Museum is all that stands between her and being stuck in a high-risk area come A-Day. She’s convinced it will be a quiet one, until her equipment picks up activity in the perimeter and she comes face-to-face with none other than her former lover.

Neil Riccard has one thing in common with Eve—he can’t afford to quit his job. Not because it would penalise him financially, but because the planet’s impending expiration date seems to have set the netherworld abuzz with excitement. All kinds of miscreants are creeping into our world and the newest rift has opened in the Natural History Museum. The last person he expects to run into when he goes to seal it is Eve, the shapeshifter who walked out on him ten years ago.

Passions ignite as the pair are thrown together in a race against the clock, at the mercy of a man who bears a startling resemblance to Neil.

This futuristic fantasy romance takes the reader on a thrilling ride through time and life right before disaster strikes.  Neil is a warlock and Eve is a shifter the two aren’t even supposed to be friends, but they have always gone their own way, now faced with the approaching asteroid the two find themselves on a quest to fix some wrongs in their past and hopefully their future.

This steady paced plot keeps readers intrigued with suspense, drama, action and romance. The author uses well defined events and scenes that make the story come alive and capture the imagination. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning. Tension builds throughout the story not just from the approaching catastrophe, but also from ghosts and poltergiest and a danger from the future as well.

The relationship between Eve and Neil starts off on the rocks because of their past, but the chemistry radiates from the pages letting the reader know that the past isn’t forgotten and the sex scenes are hot and steamy.  The relationship progresses as the story unfolds to reveal events from the future and the past that the two will have to change which brings them closer than ever. But the relationship is further complicated by Neil’s brother and by an oracle that the couple is not sure they can trust, which adds some extra spice and depth to the story.

The author has created a fantastic setting and concept for an enjoyable and entertaining read although I did find that it was a little confusing in a couple of places and seemed to drag in couple of places as well.
