THE TERRANS chronicles the Human (Terran) race as it simultaneously encounters both a vile alien enemy, the Salik, and a previously unknown branch of humanity, the V’Dan. Think about that for a second. Recently having discovered (something like) wormhole technology and setting out to explore formerly beyond reach areas of space, the ALOHA 9 and […]
I’m a big fan of Elizabeth Hunter. She’s probably the most consistently excellent independent author I’ve found.That being said, I’ve had less luck with this series—a paranormal romance spinoff of ELEMENTAL MYSTERIES, her flagship urban fantasy series. I’d thought it was ye olde UF vs. PNR debate.
