Product Description

Product Description

Captain Nova Whiteside is assigned to the elite Vanguard task force assembled to combat an increasingly dangerous rebel force. Her no-nonsense new commander is of an enigmatic and reclusive species that soon figures most decisively in the balance of power.

Their pursuit of a ruthless rebel leader takes them through the worlds and dangers of the Commonwealth-dominated Targon sector where the line between their personal lives and their mission quickly begins to blur.

On their quest to recover a dangerous, living weapon in rebel hands it seems that the greatest opposition comes from among their own people and Nova must choose between duty to her command and loyalty to her friends.

Although the Targon Tales are numbered chronologically, each book is a complete adventure. The volumes describe common themes, settings and characters but can be read in any order.

"More adventures with the fiery redhead as she dazzles the universe. Chris You are headed to the top of my author list with this series. I know who I want as my co-pilot when I go to space."

About the Author

I am a first generation Canadian currently and out of necessity residing on planet Earth (which, in the general and interplanetary scheme of things could REALLY use a catchier name, if you ask me. I mean, imagine heading past Proxima Centauri and someone asks you whence you came and you tell them "dirt". All theological implications aside, that just won't do.) . My first full-length work of fiction, a fantasy (which, I just realized, takes place on a planet that doesn't have a name at all), 'The Gods Of Chenoweth' is available at Amazon.

For the second novel, Only Human, I headed out far beyond Proxima Centauri and found a nifty story that soon turned into a Space Opera complete with worm holes and improbable laser guns. What fun. Laws of physics need not apply if you find a way to explain them away.
Because of reader comments, this book is now turning into a series. . When not finding ways to torture my subjects or entice them with inter-species hanky-panky, I design web sites or write about designing web sites. I enjoy long walks on the beach or, given the local beach shortage, write about beaches far beyond Proxima Centauri

HASH(0xb5fdc2b8) out of 5 stars Gripping Oct. 21 2012
By MsTee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What impressed me the most about Only Human was the world within it that Chris Reher created. So many different people, languages, and cultures to the point that I was amazed the author was able to maintain continuity of it all! I also greatly enjoyed the strong characterization. We are allowed into almost everyone's heads to hear their thoughts, and in a seamless way that does not jar or confuse. Most importantly, I loved the main characters. I loved Nova's fiery, stubborn, determined attitude. She is strong and `gets the job done' in a way that's not bossy or annoying. I enjoyed Tychon's calmness, his wittiness and his propensity for teasing Nova.

The book is filled to the brim with action and adventure. There are incredibly descriptive fight scenes and rescue missions. Beneath this wonderful story of suspense and action and adventure and romance, Chris Reher also attempts to teach us a vital lesson about race and the awfulness of being judged / ostracized because of our heritage. This is done in an unobtrusive, non-preachy tone - often in an unconscious and/or witty remark or thought.

Improvements:
There are a few missed / transposed words, but the rest of the story is so well done that these tiny gaffes are inconsequential.

For me, I felt the romance developed too quickly. I'll be honest and admit that I like a `slow thaw' (long bits of Unresolved Sexual Tension) between my soon-to-be-couple, so perhaps my bias is clouding my judgment.

I didn't like the decision made at the very end of the book, and felt it was not the right one at all - judging from the background and training of the decision-maker. But in order for me to explain why I feel this way, I will be at risk of revealing spoilers. In any case, I believe the author wrote it this way probably with the intention to continue the story, so I'm not too worried.

All in all, Only Human is an amazing, gripping read. It promises to keep you hooked reading it at ungodly hours of the night (is 4am considered night???). You will become attached both to the story and to the characters, worrying for their safety, cheering for them in their successes, and eager to read on as to what they'll do next. Buy it, read it, and then come thank me for recommending a great book to read. :D

HASH(0xb5fdc504) out of 5 stars Engaging, Witty, and Grand Adventure. Oct. 24 2012
By Dee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this story immensely. The plot was sound all the way through, and Chris's world comes alive. Her characters have you invested in them. She provides depth and complexity, and humanity in each. Things aren't always what they seem in this sci-fi adventure but one never regrets the ride. There are a few minor editing issues which I'm sure will be easily updated and they don't detract from the overall experience. By the end of the book, I cried having become so engaged. The reader will find themselves running the full gamut of emotions, from grinning to crying to out right furious. A good, solid read. I can only hope there will be more of this story and the characters soon!

HASH(0xb5fdc4c8) out of 5 stars Really Good Sci Fi Romance Dec 13 2012
By J Weckbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What makes a good sci fi romance is what makes any book a good read -- a good author. In fact it's probably harder to write a romance in the futuristic genre than in the present day genre. It takes imagination and thinking outside the box. I bought this book and I'm glad I did. It's well written and well plotted. I hope to see more of Chris Reher's work.

HASH(0xb5fdc7bc) out of 5 stars Sci Fi Romance Novel! Dec 25 2012
By Sharon Conant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ok, I have to say I did enjoy this book, but its not great - in the way I define great anyway. But I would recommend it for a fun read and I definitely wanted to finish the story! And the blue guy is just way too sexy!! ;-). If you like a good love story set in space with lots of flying about the galaxy, warring with aliens and power hungry rebels, and two charming, attractive lead characters, then by all means read Almost Human!!
