    2. As with quite a few of Jess Anastasi s books, I ve learnt the hard way that the blurb is always insufficient in mapping out just how little it says of her expansive universe and the huge number of things that she s got going on in it Zander Graydon and Mae Petros might be the pairing that s given priority in Quantum , but it isn t too long before I m sucked into the bigger picture that s laid out here an insidious breed of shape shifting aliens have infiltrated planets and key governmental posts [...]


    3. Sci fi, romance and bugs bugs made for a great mix This is the second in the Atrophy series and it took everything I loved from Atrophy and amped it up a whole bunch of notches This author has a flair for mixing the best elements of science fiction, romance, suspense and humor into stories that have me simply craving If you haven t read the first book, you should as Quantum continues and builds on courses already plotted This time around, Zander Graydon is back and in danger Handsome, smart and [...]


    4. Originally published at Reading RealityIf you are bemoaning the lack of Firefly in your life, take heart Quantum and the Atrophy universe are here to fill that Serenity shaped void in your heart Get ready for a wild ride on the Imojenna with Rian Sherron, as well as a heart stopping adventure following Zander Graydon and Mae Petros as they dodge shipwrecks and shape shifting aliens to stay alive.At the beginning, it feels like there are two stories here One is almost a classic survival tale Some [...]


    5. This was a fast paced SFR that had a strong heroine and a hero that swung between alpha and beta The action starts right away, and not long after the hero and heroine meet They are attracted to each other, but quickly realize he is her boss and so stay professional However, their situation goes downhill fast with sabotage and outright murder attempts She is hiding a big secret from him, and the author does a great job of making the reader certain that he is innocent while leaving the door open t [...]


    6. For reasons he can t fathom, Captain Admiral Zander Graydon almost got killed three times in one day The latest assault was in the bathroom just before boarding his shuttle at the Toccara spaceport Zander is with IPC the Inter Planetary Coalition and since there s no war at the moment, he mainly hunts down illegal traders and space pirates The shuttle is set to bring him on board his ship, the Swift Brion, where he meets his new admiral s assistant, the beguiling Lieutenant Marshal Mae Petros Wh [...]



    7. I ve been stalking the author waiting for the next book in the Atrophy series to come The first book was freaking awesome before I even finished it I was already looking for book two Sadly, it wasn t out yet but as soon as it was offered up for review, I pushed my way to the front and grabbed myself a copy of Quantum Zander and Mae, can things get any exciting for these two Well, actually, it s Zander with that ginormous bull s eye painted on the back of his head and she s along for the suicid [...]


    8. ARC REVIEW Sci fi Romance yummmmmm This is the sequel to last years Atrophy Captain Rian Sherron and the crew of the Imojenna are back with a little help from their friends It s not necessary to have read the first book but it wouldn t hurt just for the added background of the characters and their mission The main characters of this book were introduced separately in the first book, Captain Admiral Zander Graydon and Lieutenant Marshal Mae Pertos This was a great book just as good as the first I [...]


    9. Just finished reading Quantum by Jess AnastasiI m exhausted OK, yes, it s 3 am and I couldn t stop when I was so close to the endokay, so maybe I was all that very close, but hey, end was in sight and I needed to get there Freckin A I m tired because there was so much action in this book and I feel like I was right there going through most of it With Zander and Mae Yes, those are the hero and heroine of this novel, not the couple I expected would be in book 2 because I thought this would follow [...]


    10. It took me a little bit to get into this story because it had been so long since I had read the first one, Atrophy and I just didn t feel there was enough recap to catch me back up I feel if you were reading these stories back to back you would be totally fine If you are like me and read hundreds, no exaggeration, hundreds of books a year some of the finer points get lost and I found myself scrambling to try and remember who was who and what happened As the story unfolds Mae is sent on a covert [...]


    11. Quantum opened up with a bang and never slowed down Mae is undercover trying to prove if Zander is human, or if he s been replaced by the Reidar, shape shifting aliens planning to take over the system What follows is a fast paced story with enough suspense and adrenaline that kept me glued until the end Mae isn t anyone definition of a damsel in distress She extremely practical, intelligent, loyal, has a glib sense of humor, and doesn t take any crap I would have said the last person Zander woul [...]

    13. Ever since my first Jess Anastasi book, she has been a go to author for me The way she spins an epic tale of sci fi action with heart grabbing romance is an all around win as far as I m concerned Put it all together in the form of an epic series, satisfying my urge to remain with the same base line of characters and immerse myself into their lives, and I am hooked.Quantumwas a thrill ride from the very start, pitting the stuffed shirt Zander with the enigmatic Mae in a survival tale that combine [...]


    14. DNF Personals I don t like stories where sex is used for information, or when the characters having sex don t even like each other.

    26. I am loving this series and look forward to the next book The cast of characters are intriguing and the action exciting I especially love the glimpses into Rian s dark world and will be bouncing up and down exited when his and Ella s story is finally told In the meantime I got to enjoy the quick banter and steamy interactions between Mae and Zander I love that Mae is strong, capable and is likely to be the one doing the saving She s no damsel in distress, and Zander is the perfect hero for her [...]
