When I first started reading books I was originally attracted to Sci-Fi books so I am no novice to this genre. I found Ms. Lyndi Alexander has created exactly what I like in my Sci-Fi; a suggestion of the future without a conformation of it. I like to to be able to suspend reality without questioning time-frame accuracy. I just want to sit back and enjoy the book. I was not disappointed with A Small Degree of Hope. Filled with action and suspense, this page turner kept me riveted from the first to the last page. I found all the characters very well written and engaging. Kylie is a strong woman holding her own against the men in her life. Griff is a great romantic hero and he definitely has the strong semi-silent type down pretty good. Granted he’s a shapeshifting lizard, but what was delightfully missing from his personality was the typical over-bearing macho-ism that you see in so many plots nowadays. I like how I was kept on my toes by not only the obvious villains but the additional questionable ‘bad guys’
Over-all A Small Degree of Hope is a great Sci-Fi book. Definitely a nice change from paranormals and very much worth the read.
I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
