    One thought on “Reaching Higher”

    1. His name is Kine Kine.His mother must have hated him to so clearly delineate him as prey Unless he s actually a predator and this is supposed to be one of those stupid ironic statements.ough he s called Rael most of the time wait What I hadn t looked back at this and spent most of it thinking his name was Raelne Kine, but apparently it s the other way around So, I did like this It s very well nuanced in characterization and world building, and the MCs 1 don t immediately fall all over each other [...]

    2. In the previous book the pair of lovers were in a way naivee Dinun, even if adult in age, was still new to love being gay in a farmer society where all that matter was how many children you can have, made him a different from his similar, and so it was quite easy for him to accept to share his life with Moon, a wild Angel, a breed of men with white fur and wings In this story there is another type of diversity, due to the alien nature of one of the main character More, he is not only alien , he [...]

    3. Sauji In book two, you follow Kine Kine is one of the invaders whom where kidnapping the babies from book one He is now stuck on this other world and has decided to accept his fate He expects to be killed, rightfully so, for kidnapping the Angel babies and being part of the killing of some of the Angels You find out that Kine did not intend to kill any of the Angels He and his crew where simply ignorant about Angels The government finally gives him a chance to help right his wrongs If he accepts [...]

    4. The whole premise of this one kind of fails From the start, the MC is not particularly likeable, but the author tries to rehabilitate him by making him passive and sympathetic The story is about people stranded on an alien planet, sentenced to death for murder However, since they have technological information the planet needs, suddenly they are negotiating from a strength position But there s no acknowledgement that the Quarnians the planet s inhabitants have any negotiating power at all One mo [...]

    5. Book two in the Encounters Series, Reaching Higher is an excellent spin on a sequeltaking a minor villain character from On Wings Rising and showing his side of the coin What s lovely about this is not only does this story take a villain and show us things are not always cut and dried when it comes to villainy in literature, but Somerville explores that character as he attempts to atone while being a guarded prisoner for his sins As with the first story, there is subtle social commentary woven i [...]

    6. I didn t think I d like this one at first since it centered on the one of the criminals from the first book, but after the first few chapters I found I enjoyed it even than On Wings, Rising Not often do I prefer a sequel over what came before it Rael and Suaj really endeared themselves to me.

    7. I was determined to hate Raelne how the heck do you pronounce that name , but I was amazed at how quickly I became fond of him I liked the slow build to Rael and Suaj s relationship I love that I never know where the author is heading either She keeps me guessing which fucks with my control issues, just quietly.Onto the next one
