sci fi romance Oct. 27 2009
By C. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Blurb
A twist of fate made Zoe Pappas heir to the Byzant throne. Bound by duty and devotion to keep the Empire safe, Zoe is captured while on a secret diplomatic mission and sent to an underground prisoner-of-war camp. In this strange, shadowy place, residents are governed by fellow inmate General Matthias "Doc" Raven, whose powerful magnetism rouses an urgent desire in Zoe. But the intensity of her attraction is matched by her surprise at discovering that Doc has a secret of his own: he is a vampire

Great Great sci fi romance. This is an awesome read. Other than the fact that Raven is a vampire, this is not like the Prime romance. This is a whole new world and takes place years in the future. In fact the story is based on a prison colony. Do not let sci fi turn you away. There are lasers and aliens(some insectoids and some humanoid) Sizemore still keeps the romance in this as the main focus. There is chemistry between the hero and heroine from the beginning and the buildup is in increments with witty comments, flirty glances and then a BAM sex scene that knocks you for a loop. Im a Prime fan, and this lives up to the same engaging romance that Sizemore is known for.

Great example of a cross-genre book that works Nov. 3 2009
By J. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am not a big fan of vampire stories but when I read the recommendation for Dark Stranger I had to give it a try. After I started reading I did not want to put the book down. Susan Sizemore has taken her vampire Prime books into the future and has written a Paranormal and Science Fiction Romance book that works.. General Matthias "Doc" Raven is the ranking officer among the humans held in a prisoner of war camp that holds three different alien species. Zoe Pappas is among the new prisoners arriving at the camp. Neither are what they seem to be. The characters are well thought out, the back-story skillfully woven into the whole, and the story is tension filled. You do not need to be familiar with Susan's Prime series to enjoy this story.

Speaking as a Science Fiction Romance lover this will go on my favorites shelf.

If you like this genre, it is a must read May 4 2010
By Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book and wished it wouldn't end. I've read others by Susan Sizemore and really like her style, but this one is by far my favorite one of all. The character development, and the feelings between them is so awesome! If you've never read her, and are open to just a little fantasy (i.e. there is a vampire after all), this will hook you on her books!

Didn't work for me Nov. 13 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed Susan Sizemore's vampire stories in the past and was very intrigued by the premise of this Prime story set in the future. Unfortunately, it did not work for me.

The mysterious energy wave that destroyed the Earth's atmosphere leading the way to the creation of the Byzant empire was lame. The inability of the enemy to locate the princess was lame. And then I kept getting these flash backs to one of the poorer STAR TREK movies (the one where Kirk and McCoy are sentenced to an underground Klingon prison located on an Ice planet). There was even a locator device that was planted in the hand of Zoe's chief of security.

The plot didn't flow. There were several jumpy bits but the worst was Zoe's suicide attempt that seemed fake to me. There was no build up in her state of mind that would justify that action. In fact, she had rejected it previously. And I didn't find any justificaiton for Matthias saying he had figured out that was what she was going to do because of her desperate attitude during their most recent sex encounter. Another out of kilter plot twist was Matthias' planning and execution of a big prison break out in less than 3 hours (including a time out for some sex with Zoe). And why was this plan successful? The Krills (or the enemy) just needed to slam the front door shut and that would have been that. And wasn't that a wonderful coincidence that the leader of Zoe's special forces rescue squad was Matthias' prime cousin? And gee whiz another member of the rescue team just happened to be a mattria (or whatever) who could marry Zoe & Matthias "Prime style"? /sarc.

I was never in sympathy with Zoe. She wasn't real. When I read about how her family already had embryos stored in the event of Zoe's death, my reaction was "That's all right then, let's kill her off!" Matthias was more realistic as a Prime (believable in the Sizemore world) but he needed a better bond mate than Zoe.

I want more Vampire Book Club stories! Nov. 8 2009
By Marjorie M. Ihssen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I want more Vampire Book Club stories. Yes, I love the author's series of modern times Prime Books but I find the question of what do vampyres do for fun/hobbies/etc. quite intriging. They have free time just like the rest of us normals and though Ms. Sizemore's vampyres are not confined by sunlight and other traditional "allergies" still there must be limitations on what they can do - what does someone do for hobbies when you live so long - how do you stay sane? I like the idea of exploring vampyres in the future, when we have (hopefully) spread ourselves into space. Plus trying to read this from a female vampyre's point of view added a whole new dimension to the story. What do female vampyres look for in a hero? Doc is a wonderfully complex character, and Zoe is great - a true princess but with that core of independence we like in our heroines and sorely conflicted between duty and her heart. That her ultimate decision will make a political statement is just icing on the cake for her - but I won't say more - I hate spoilers! Read and enjoy!!
