    EBOOK Heart Scarab Taking Shield #2 This second book in a very good series is well worth reading for SciFi fans The romance thread is still glacially slow and muted at the end although there is forward movement here Joss Bennet's long time partner is a focus as their relationship unravels leaving space perhaps for FlynnBennet is on a backwater colony planet trying to evacuate religious fanatic colonists when the Maees strike In the scramble to ge

Heart Scarab Taking Shield #2 review ¸ 3 review Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB × Anna Butler In Heart Scarab set than a year and a half after Gyrfalcon Shield Captain Bennet’s company is on a planet in imminent danger of being overrun by the Maess Telnos is an unpleasant little planet inhabited by religious fanatics in the festering marshlands a. Great science fiction shaky at best romanceTo be fair I did not read the first story in this series I suspect that if I had my allegiances would have been different coming into the story but I m not sure I would have been satisfied as a reader in terms of the romanceBennet is a military man The rebellious son who paves his own way ignoring his father s wishes He s stubborn determined and duty bound the epitome of noblesse oblige Joss twice Bennet s age and the dilettante academic who loves him They ve been together since Bennet was eighteen and pursuing him He s sophisticated and torn while Bennet is way on missions He wants Bennet to give up the military and stay home he s already been egregiously injured onceJoss was right This mission takes Bennet s life as far as his loved one know Planetside he meets a scrabble of people not evacuated before the Maess invasion There are some great characters introduced Ifan local minerex infantry man who finds Bennet and Luke orphaned child Ifan and he find while surveying the local holdings for survivors of the Maess attack True to Bennet form they are important characters in his life until he moves on and then they re discardedThe beginning is heavily militaristic but when the botched mission turns domestic as Bennet navigates his injuries and subsisting with the other refugees while plotting an escape plan And leave they do but not without conseuences During the formal grieving observances Flynn reenters the storyline Flynn the talented pilot who once saved Bennet and stole his heart The first book in the series from my understanding has a much greater emphasis on this relationship And thus a love triangle emergesBennet is an unmitigated ass to Joss during his recovery Definitely his father s son there Cruel in his dismissal of Joss s care seeing it as a slight against his weakness They have been together for years and there have been changes or rather Bennet has changed and Joss expects things to be the sameThe line between open relationship and infidelity is very thin both Joss and Bennet teeter on it as their actions wobble their uasi marriage they made vows that are not legal in Albion Then they take off the gloves and hurt each other in ways that only someone who loves you can The status uo is no longer working for Bennet and Joss is angry that his wishes in their relationship are ignoredBasically Bennet is the sort of man who expects to the be sun and have all others orbit him in this he is like his father He doesn t do compromise and frankly he deserves to be alone But he keeps finding people who are willing to bend over backwards for him So as far as leading heroes goes he does not engender positive feelings And the set up for the third story hints heavily not to expect better from him I loved the expeditions but honestly would have loved to see the romance dropped I hated the dynamics the backstabbing and disregard founded on poor communication Overall the science fiction military exploits is the win while the romance leaves a bitter taste Favorite passage Having it all Yes Isn t that the way you like it Sure it was Only once you d got it all you sometimes wondered what it was you d got and why the hell you d wanted it in the first place A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown reviewReviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews

Heart Scarab Taking Shield #2 review ¸ 3 review Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB × Anna Butler T behind presumed deadHis family is grieving Joss his long term partner grieves with them; lost unhappy remorseful First Lieutenant Flynn has no official ‘rights’ here He isn’t family He isn’t partner or loverAll he is is brokenNumber of words 1024. Be careful what you wish forI d remarked that in Gyrfalcon Joss was pretty awful and meant to beSo in volume II Butler gives us big chunks of Joss s POV As a result I was interested in Joss than the MCs and skipped a couple of chapters supposed to be their great love scenes and discussing feels with all their friends and relatives mostly one after the other but sometimes in groups Caeden s manipulative behaviour seemed based on revenge is a dish best served cold And the future seems a bit like the 1980s No fun games or entertainment These are military on long haul patrol and have state of the art training simulations But no electronic games let alone VR That was a tad disappointing The ending was bad also Talk about out the blueVolume III is mostly alien bashing apparently so I may try it
