From Goodreads: After learning Theo is alive, Sar immediately embarks on a mission to find him. Reunited, the lovers return to New York, Danial, Terian and Theo uneasily combining forces to protect Sar from Al’s assassins who still seek her. But when Sar is taken prisoner in an all-out attack, only one man can save her—her old adversary, Devlin.

 

Let me just say that with this series you need to start at the beginning. My review won’t contain any spoilers, but it’s important to note that if you start with this book, you may not know what’s going on. I know it took me a little bit to remember since it had been a while since I read the last one. It will pick right back up where the last one left off, so if you wanna just grab all of them and read straight though, that would probably be a lot of fun. I’ve been looking forward to this installment for a while because these stories are always so much fun. To me, this series makes the paranormal world seem even more realistic than some of the other series out there. It seems perfectly normal that the world works the way it does and there’s nothing that breaks me from feeling like this is reality when I read these. The main character, Sar, is a little frustrating to me just because she is so incredibly different from me and reacts in ways to situations that I don’t always understand. The love stories in these books make me feel like I’m spinning in circles and I can’t quite keep up with how Sar feels about someone sometimes. That being said, I think it’s kind of fun. I like feeling like I’m on a roller coaster because when I read, I read to escape reality. This definitely does that and I really enjoy these books. This one was no exception. The story went by a lot quicker than I wanted it to and I hope I get to read the rest soon. They’re like a paranormal soap opera, which is exactly my kind of soap opera. There’s tons of up and down emotions and everything you’d want in a series. 🙂

From Goodreads: ‘Intergalactic Terrorist’ follows Charlie Pinwright, possibly the most forgettable man on Earth, who, in the space of a few days, loses his job, has his flat rented out to a family of butchers and finds his girlfriend cheating on him with a Spanish cake decorator. Oh, and he is kidnapped by a crazy alien bounty hunter and sent into a new dimension full of strange worlds and even stranger characters, all who want to see poor Charlie dead!

Desperately trying to return home, Charlie finds himself a wanted man and is hunted by all the major powers of this new dimension, quickly becoming one of the most memorable men in the universe!
However there is much more at stake than his own life and he soon discovers that the fate of the entire galaxy may rest on his shoulders…

Intergalactic Terrorist’ is a comedic sci-fi/fantasy that is filled with brilliant characters and strange and exciting story twists!

I love, love, LOVED this book. It felt like I was reading something related to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which is probably one of my favorite books of all time. Everything is crazy and absurd and funny. It’s a really good time and if you’re a fan of crazy sci-fi, this is definitely for you! On Goodreads this is listed as book 1 in a series and if there’s a second, then I want to be first in line to get the second. Everything about this book is random, so don’t expect anything to make any kind of real sense, but expect to have a fantastic time while reading this. I don’t really know what else to say about this book except go get it! I’m gonna gush all over the place and say this was so much fun and the exact escape from reality that I’m always looking for! 🙂
