Playing Jokers Blog all suits of genres and bookish newsRollicking, romping, and similarly playful action verbs have been used to describe Poisoned Pawn I don t necessarily disagree either, because in terms of the latest science fiction I have consumed, this was definitely very enjoyable.I m one of those people that like Star Wars and Mass Effect I have never watched Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, and whatever else is blasphemous to admit I have a hard time with science fiction whe [...]

Poisoned Pawn, the third book in the fantastic Altairan Empire series, is filled with just as much action, adventure and witty banter my personal favorite part as the previous books The strength of this series has always been its characters Clegg does a masterful job in giving them each their own distinct and truly enjoyable personalities despite the difficult task of using multiple points of view From reading so much this year I can t stress enough what a feat it is to do that and have the char [...]

Review The Poisoned Pawn, by Jaleta Clegg Aaarrrgggg This book is bad for my romantic heart But it gives me so much hope, that I just have to keep reading Sigh Dace and Tayvis So good together And Dace, with her penchant for getting into hairy sticky situations, I just hope she manages to stay alive for the next two years, but at the rate she is going, it s anyone s guess Luke, what a yellowed bellied cur They should have pulled his toenails out and made him eat them Blah Ah, poor Rinth He was s [...]
The main story is about two independent traders trying to make an honest living Unfortunately for them, Dace has a preternatural knack for getting into astonishingly deep trouble, a trait which has drawn the attention of Commander Lowell of the Patrol A master manipulator for the undercover division, Lowell aims Dace and her crew at the Cygnus sector to see what she ll shake loose.I found the book to be a compelling read which stands nicely on its own despite being third in the series Dace has a [...]
This was the third book of The Fall of the Altarian Empire I am sure I would have enjoyed this book much if I had read the first two in the series Even though I didn t I really liked this book because of the action sequences There was plenty of action that kept me entertained I also liked that the space setting to the book I will be honest I wasn t much of a fan of the romance but the action than made the story for me I will now have to go back and read book one and book two
I had a lot of fun reading this book, for the most part, there was a section where the main character was a prisoner that I found a bit triggering and hard to get through though I suspect that was partially due to my feeling of connection to Dace and what she was going through That aside, this again feels like a throw back to a old fashion adventure based Science Fiction that I 19ve missed reading over the recent years and it 19s great to see the author getting stronger in her craft I felt the [...]

The I read of this series the the characters really grow on me Admittedly, I did not enjoy this book as much as the last I found the whole kidnapping imprisonment quite depressing which is a testament to the author as I imagine it was supposed to invoke some feeling of revulsion I missed the usual feistiness of Dace and hope we get to see that back in the next book The one part that I really loved about this book however, was the development of some of the secondary characters, in particular J [...]
Pulled me in from the beginning Jaleta has hit her stride I found the psychological danger Dace gets into in this one scarier than some of the straight forward if for convoluted reasons that Dace has faced in the past Love how serendipity weaves through her life as sort of a trailing blessing or side effect of Dace s over arching Murphy curse.
Poisoned Pawn sees our beloved Captain Dace in yet trouble All she wants is peace and quiet and the freedom of her own ship, but that is not to be I loved the characters and the build up of the action I could really connect to Dace and all the other characters too Great read if you love sci fi adventure like I do.
oh i really liked this one i couldnt put it downoroughly enjoyed it.
