    One thought on “Greenshift”

    1. Having read Marked by Light, I slid easily into Greenshift, remembering the character names and their personalities As one who actively seeks out books where the action starts on page one, I wasn t disappointed The book opens with a tense standoff between the captain of a gunship, David Anlow a civilian ship orders from a superior officer that are contrary to David s instincts and an old flame who decides to commit mutiny Action, suspense, and betrayal It hit all my buttons.The book then shifts [...]

    2. Greenshift is a fast moving tale set in the world Miller first introduced us to with Ambasadora Although it does include some of the characters from that book it is a stand alone adventure in its own right Miller s trademark sexy sci fi is in full effect as the book centers on the blooming relationship between Captain David Anlow and the much younger Boston Mari Maribou who lives and works on the same ship as he does Just as the two are really starting to get to know each other Mari finds hersel [...]

    3. 4.5 5Greenshift is a novella which I ve enjoyed just as much as Heidi s full novel Ambasadora We know David and Mari from Ambasadora, and I ve never particularly liked Mari or understood what David saw in her However, her character is very charming, youthful and brave in her own story.Mari hails from a poor mining planet as an 18 year old scientist, some sort of environmentalist who creates greenshift arranges for sustainable food sources, gardens on the ships in space She is a perky, naive blon [...]

    4. Disclaimer I attended Seton Hill University s Writing Popular Fiction program with Heidi Ruby Miller and consider her a friend I purchased my copy of this book through a charity auction at the Capclave convention 2013.Chronology note GREENSHIFT is technically a prequel to AMBASADORA MARKED BY LIGHT, but the two books can be read in any order.This novel is a science fiction adventure romance that is not defined by any one genre David is a classic former military leading man, but Mari is never his [...]

    5. I couldn t stand the heroine She s everything I hate in a heroine She s stupid but she think she s intelligent, she thinks she knows better than anyone else Arghhhh Why, why, why authors continue to write about them She redeemed herself a little bit towards the end of the book, but it was too late for me to like her.The hero was better, but I couldn t understand what he saw in her Did he suffer from grandaddy syndrome He s supposed to be 80 years old, but she falls for a 19 years old OMG Talk ab [...]

    6. After reading and loving Ambasadora, I was thrilled to read Greenshift, which delivers the fascinating back stories of David and Mari things that were only hinted at, tantalizingly, in Ambasadora.Here we learn what brought about David s separation form the military and we see David at his best, struggling to integrate into his non military status aboard the Bard, giving in to his heart and allowing himself to admit just how important Mari is to him There s a thoroughly creepy plot which threaten [...]

    7. For me Greenshift was an enjoyable introduction to the World of Ambasadora This sci fi story included an interesting plot, plenty of action and some well developed characters I certainly look forward to reading of Heidi Ruby Miller s work.

    8. Heidi Ruby Miller is a multi talented writer Where most would say this in reference to her roles as a wife, educator, and an author I wish to speak only in regards to her writing Do not discount her other roles in life I am sure that like other authors they very much inform her writing Rather I want the focus to be on her craft Where most excel in one or two specific areas of writing, in my opinion with Greenshift she excels in all.I will allow the description in the listing do the heavy lifting [...]

    9. This was gifted to me by the author and I am so grateful, and pleased to have read it This is such a fascinating world However, this story was a prequel to the book I read first, Ambasadora, telling a bit of Mari Davids love story David and Mari compliment each other so well, boosting the other in all the right places And although she is a young, tiny woman with even smaller skirts, Mari is a brilliant and strong chick who gives as good as she gets David is still a bit of a mystery but the glim [...]

    10. I read and loved Miller s debut novel Ambasadora, so I was thrilled to see that she had written a new book and one in the Ambasadora Verse to boot.If you haven t read Ambasadora, no worries, this book is a prequel, taking place one month before the events of Ambasadora so, by all means read these books in whichever order you like.I was very happy to see this prequel focus in on Mari and David, two of my favourite characters from Ambasadora They deserve a book of their own and Miller gives them a [...]

    11. I loved this book I must admit that I am not the biggest science fiction fan, but this is the exception The character development is fantastic I loved Mari David and everyone else The plot was phenomenal I was hooked from the beginning I related to the characters and couldn t stop reading as events unfolded It has the sure sign of a great book for me I rushed to finish it, so that I would know how it ends, all the while trying to take my time so that it didn t end I desperately wanted to see wha [...]

    12. The good Again, I loved the world building in this, the attention to detail and the portrayal of the characters Heidi has a talent for making them so real The writing is flawless and descriptive, and all the premises and reactions believable and consistent The bad guys completely gave me the creeps, and I m glad the torture scenes weren t detailed there was enough there for you to use your imagination, should you wish.The bad The only reason I ve rated this a touch lower than Ambasadora is beca [...]

    14. Science fiction romantic suspense, and you could call it a short novel or a really long novella Up front, let me say the world building and characterization both blew me away Everything was beautifully thought out, including the space water dock s security system, the politics among the security guards, and the interworkings of an onboard hydroponics unit with the ship s systems More layers here than J.K Rowling s finest, and I loved it.There s a bit romance here than I normally read, but none [...]

    15. I read Heidi Ruby Miller s Ambassadora prior to Greenshift so I was familiar with the world and many of the characters Although this story was less intricate than Ambassadora one storyline versus many storylines converging together in a dare I say brilliant ending , Greenshift very much fits the series that Miller is creating The world she s managed to create is full and complete and utilized exceptionally well in both books.What I find most impressive with Greenshift is Miller s ability to crea [...]

    16. Heidi Ruby Miller has the amazing ability to make you dive into the world she created and observe like the voyeur bots she conjured up for the story Greenshift is a sort of prequel to the incredible Ambassadora tale, and it was such a treat to meet up with, and get to know of, David Anlow and Boston Mari Maribu, as well as Sean From the get go, the pace moves No spoilers here, but if you love planet hopping, space crafts, incredibly thought out societal pecking orders, stuff called scent bots a [...]

    17. I just found out that this is a prequel so I m excited to read the rest in this series.I somewhat enjoy sci fi but if it has romance in it then I m GAME BABY This definetly had romance in it and yummy but classy sex scenes.I really enjoyed the main two characters Mari and David They were strong No Doormat Diva or Jackass Hero These characters were really well developed.I will definetly be checking out the rest of the series.

    18. Excellent follow up book to Ambasadora This story stayed focused and flowed very nicely I appreciated that while it is the second in a series, it did not spend much time recapping everything that was defined in Ambasadora David and Mari s story was better than I expected.

    19. Great sci fi getaway splashed with love Miller has a way in pulling you in and keeping you there I recommend this book

    20. Greenshift is a simple story Descriptions can be heavy and interrupt dialogue Dialogue can be coarse and does little to distinguish characters from one another Protagonists and their environments are flawless and beautiful and the anatagonists are not.A short read that only took me two days to get through, Greenshift is a conventional romance novel with a popular sci fi environment and a heroine who saves herself after victimizing herself I m personally disappointed that the relationship between [...]

    21. In AMBASADORA, author Heidi Ruby Miller created a fascinating, and highly detailed verse peopled with three dimensional characters going about the business of surviving, falling in love, and navigating the intricacies of a complex and corrupt political overclass Her second novel set in the same verse, GREENSHIFT, takes a smaller bite of her verse and explores the relationship between Armadan Captain David Anlow and botanist Mari Boston Maribu, both introduced in AMBASADORA.Set prior to the event [...]

    22. Rating 4 5Geek rating 4 5I had so much fun reading Greenshift The story follows a few characters, David and Mary the primary ones, through an action packed, romance filled story that had me guessing up to the final pages The characters are well rounded and realized, and the plot is tight Miller effortlessly weaves all the essential elements of a good story together.At the beginning, I had a tough time identifying with Mari She felt so na ve and young that, when her situation got bad, I wasn t su [...]

    23. Demasiado gore para mi gusto.No creo que este libro se pueda leer como un stand alone Hay demasiados detalles y demasiada informaci n que no se sabe de d nde sale, me ha costado entender todo el universo donde se desarrolla la historia, a pesar de que este libro es se supone una precuela.Los detalles tan escabrosos sobre lo que el malo le hace a sus v ctimas y la violencia de algunas escenas me han sacado un poco de la historia Y ese final, me ha parecido absurdo y descabellado.Para m no ha func [...]

    24. GREENSHIFT by Heidi Ruby Miller is a beautifully written blend of science fiction and romance by a skilled writer who can build worlds and transport readers to faraway realms at the turn of a page The suspense created within the first chapter set the tone for a novel that balances the horrific within a plot that is constructed around themes of trust and empowerment I like that Miller keeps her female characters strong and puts them in realistic scenarios where their intelligence is tested just a [...]

    25. The best review I can say about this book is that it make me want to re read book one, Ambassadora Have let way too much time between these two book, I forgot what a great story Heidi Ruby Miller tells She has created an intriguing world of rebels, fraggers, controlling government, and scheming personalities She tops it off with a deliciously attractive love story which both contrasts with and enhances the intrigue I cannot wait to read the next book.

    26. Heidi Ruby Miller delivers again I like that the story started on the first page and it never stopped There were a lot of human elements tension, drama, conflict, pride, love, loyalty, friendship, and vile evil lust thrown into her sci fi world Miller s sci fi world is intricately put together yet simple to understand and quickly become immersed This was an easy and enjoyable read for me.

    27. Wasn t as exciting as I thought it would be Lot of the events and characters seemed to be a cop out Not very interesting to read if everyone and everything was so convenient.
