Integration by M.A. Abraham – Review & Giveaway
Tantalus series – Book #2
by M.A. Abraham
Release Date: October 6, 2015
The members of the Noah’s Arc have been busy, along with their hosts. The Tantalarians have done what they can to guide and help the new members of the planet, but there are problems. Not everyone is ready to accept the differences between the two species, the idea that some day the two species could become one, which causes jealousy, prejudices.
The Arc Royal is right on schedule, and everyone is on hand to greet them. Lieutenant Nobel greets her sister, but her sister’s eyes are glued on Synric, not her son, as Julia thinks they should be. Her sister’s husband is not pleased with his wife’s lack of enthusiasm at seeing their child, nor the attention she is giving the winged alien. Is something wrong?
Synric doesn’t appear to be very pleased with the sudden attention, but his actions speak louder than words. Will her sister steal the man Lieutenant Nobel is falling in love with? She will fight for him, using every dirty trick in the book if she has to.
Integration by M.A. Abraham is the 2nd book in her Tantalus series. Integration picks up not long after First Contact ended. For those of you who have not read the first book or my review on First Contact, here is a brief description of the premise of this series. This is a Sci-Fi story about two species (Humans & Tantalarians) that are forced to work together on the planet Tantalus. In the first book, Noah’s Arc brought thousands of humans to land safely on Tantalus, and get to know their new planet & their hosts, who look human, but they do have wings. There were the obvious differences, as well as an evil villain bent on destroying humans who have physic ability.
Abraham continues the world building in Integration, as another ship from earth, The Arc Royal is set to arrive on Tantalus. But with it comes a hidden villain who continues to hurt those working with the Tantalarians. The mystery as to who is bet raying them is the base of the story; but the romances that develop between the Tantalarian men and human women continues. We get to spend time with those we met in the first book, and meet some new wonderful characters to add to this mix. Both species do live by different rules, but they work together to form a common ground to help make things easier.
This is a hard review without giving too many spoilers, though the description above does explain a lot. There is a lot of action, suspense, romance, and some sexy scenes. There is some sexy humor with the human teen age girls watching the Tantalarian men play games in the buff. Cute. The race is on to try and find the villain, before he kills more humans. It is very exciting, and I loved the new relationships that developed, as well as seeing how the previous relationships continue to grow.
M.A. Abraham has once again given us an exciting and tense story of the two species working together, and the dark cloud of evil that threatens to destroy everything. I will say that this is not to be read as a standalone. You need to read the first book, First Contact to fully understand this planet they will all live in together. Integration was a fun and exciting story, which has us waiting impatiently for the continuation in the next book.
