"A High Flying Sci-Fi Adventure Romance!"
Liz Kreger breaks into the publishing world with a great
sci-fi adventure/romance series. The first book, Forget
About Tomorrow, begins on earth and soon has the reader
taking off to all sorts of fascinating worlds as our hero
and heroine run for their lives from a galactic type mafia.
Victor MacNaught or 'Mac' as his friends call him has just
discovered his fiancé in bed with another man and is
drowning his anger and frustration at the local bar.
Obviously the marriage is not going to happen and all he
wants to do is escape from it all. Little does he know the
answer to his prayers has just walked through the door, in
the form of a very sexy blonde followed by a very big
Larissalyia Ashanti is the daughter of the Chief Magistrate
of the Federation of Worlds and is hiding out on earth.
Presently her father is holding a very dangerous criminal
leader, Audon SouMalocho, on her planet Kador.
Unfortunately he has a far reaching network that is slowly
killing off the jurors that convicted SoulMalocho of a
lesser crime than what he is truly guilty for. And now it
has become common knowledge that his next target is the
Ms. Kreger plunges the reader into adventure as Mac comes
to Larissalyia's rescue in the bar as her bodyguard has
been rendered unconscious. Mac, a former Special Forces
soldier and now working in the private industry with
security, quickly learns whether you're on earth or another
planet the threat to life is all the same and he is not
going to let it happen on his watch. In the midst of his
good intentions Mac is injured by an alien weapon; and if
Larissalyia is to survive she must leave earth now. Making
a snap decision she takes Mac with her where she can better
treat his wound and figure out later how to get return him
safely to earth.
Forget About Tomorrow is a wonderful opening to the "A Part
of Tomorrow" series. Her world building is creative and
believable. The differences between the aliens and their
culture are fascinating as you learn, for instance, that
Larissalyia's eyes change color with every mood she
expresses. I found the action and plot build at a steady
pace, while the characters were well balanced and matched
to each other. Forget About Tomorrow is not a book I will
soon forget and definitely recommend to sci-fi romance fans
