The Champion of Barésh

Jemm Aves learned the sport of bajha (think blindfolded fencing) from her father, even though it’s only for men. Her family’s dire poverty leads her to take a stab (ha!) at fighting in street bajha clubs while disguised as a man. Her unexpectedly brilliant performance gets filmed and sent to Pri ...

The Warlord's Daughter

I had such high hopes for The Warlord’s Daughter. Since Star Wars, I’ve had an affinity for futuristic, outer-space romances and, though this second installment in the Borderlands Series started well, it fizzled before the end. As the daughter of the Supreme Warlord of the ...

Moonstruck

I love science fiction romances, so when I was offered the opportunity to review Susan Grant’s Moonstruck, the first volume in her new Borderlands series, I was delighted. I have not yet read (although I plan to) her last trilogy, to which this book is a sequel, but you needn’t do so in order to ...

How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days

How To Lose An Extraterrestrial in 10 Days is the last in Susan Grant's very enjoyable science fiction trilogy (the first two titles are Your Planet or Mine and My Favorite Earthling). While paranormal romances are sprouting up like weeds, science fiction romances are hard to find, and this is ...

My Favorite Earthling

It’s been along time since I read a science fiction (as opposed to fantasy) romance. Not having read the first book in Susan Grant’s series I was a bit lost, but after a few chapters I got my bearings. Jared Jasper’s family has been prominent in California politics for years and held up p ...

Your Planet or Mine?

Jana Jasper is the nine-year-old heir to an American political family dynasty. The only problem? Unlike the rest of her family she wasn't blessed with the gift of gab; in fact, she's mute. That is, until she meets a strange boy who glows, can fly, and who seems to cure her inability to speak. Tha ...

The Scarlet Empress

Susan Grant's The Scarlet Empress is a brisk pageturner with a fast-moving storyline and likable characters. But while it's an entertaining read, it's also a less satisfying conclusion to the 2176 saga than it might have been. Grant, the creative force behind this mini-series, kicked things o ...

The Legend of Banzai Maguire

The Legend of Banzai Maguire is exactly the kind of futuristic I'm always looking for but seldom find. The first in a five-part, multi-author series (with the fifth book also to be penned by Grant), it's an action-adventure tale set on Earth in the year 2176. The story opens in 200 ...

The Star Princess

The Star Princess is an excellent romance, the relationship between the hero and heroine a delightful sparring match similar to that of Gable and Colbert's in the movie It Happened One Night. But when the two are not center-stage, the action flags and attention wanders. Che Vedla i ...

Contact

As a 747 pilot for United Airlines, there is little doubt that Susan Grant has been forced to confront more directly than most of us the enormous changes September 11, 2001 brought to our world. Drawing on her unique credentials and front-line perspective, Susan Grant has delivered a story of unusua ...
