This was an exciting space adventure! To tell you the truth I didn’t know if I would like this, but as I kept reading the more I liked it. Anitra keeps dropping bombs on you, just when you think the h/h are going to get along, BAM! Something huge hits them and throws them apart again, that’s when I would be sucked in again just to see how they were going to work their way out of the next mess. Needless to say this is not a quick read its one that you want to savor as you read and really pay [...]
This book takes place in the year 2476. Most of the events take place on the Mutiny. This is the salvage ship of Captain Jace Lawless. His ship mates have a tight familial relationship. When the ship acquires a new cook turmoil builds up in the form of distrust and conflicts from both the new comer and the current crew. Being a cook on a ship is nothing new for Kraft. She’s done it before and she holds her head high as she prepares to do it again. Ill circumstances have fallen on her. She stil [...]
Thief is a sci-fi adventure with romantic elements. (Makes me want to watch Firefly again!) The story goes a little long, but the characters and plot twists kept me engaged.Downloaded as a kindle freebie.
Excellent dystoptian. M/m

Lives and futures are ruled by the Inner World Government (IWOG), unless you've got the skills and the guts to make your own way on The Fringe.Captain Jace Lawless runs a salvage ship, the Mutiny. Staying just out of reach of the by-the-book IWOG officials, he manages to remain one step ahead of starvation, death, or worse – being grounded. He and all of his crew hate the IWOG—they've all lost friends and family to the grinding wheel of the IWOG's corporate greed and heartlessness. In Jace's [...]
I tried. I really did but I just have to give up before my brain completely rebels on me. This book was a DNF for me.I like both science fiction and romance, which is what attracted me about this book. However, to steal a term from another romance genre, this is a "wallpaper" sci-fi romance. The world-building is extremely limited--think "space ship", "the Void", and "a planet" and you've got it most of it--and sometimes forgotten: for example, after a shopping trip on a planet to restock the sh [...]
I would not have picked this book up if it was not a group read. I'm not much of a sci-fi girl though I will read it from time to time. But this was a great story! Another Samhain without much nookie, but it was an interesting story. I liked that Kraft was such a strong woman, and that while she could cause great harm to people, she didn't. She had her honor, and while she could choose to give that away, nobody could take it from her. I loved that she sort of wormed her way into Jace's crew. I a [...]
An interesting book, the whole plot is a romance plot but not? The whole book from the first chapter builds up to Kraft and Jace getting together, but it's more events that build up to this than an actual romance. I'm kinda disappointed from the lack of pursuit that went on, the whole book up until the last was both Jace and Kraft tip toeing around the fact that they fell in love almost at first sight. Both have past issues and both act defensive and a bit like children about it, they bait each [...]
It was quite well written but was very distracting with profanity and an unneeded detailed sex scene and many strong innuendos. The story line was good and could have been very interesting without the before-mentioned situations. I feel she could be a great author if she would improve on the vocabulary.
Quite enjoyed this, surprisingly (I don't know why I went into it thinking it'd be meh, but I did). Reminded me kind of a kinky cross between Firefly (it's entirely possible Jace looked a good deal like Mal in my mind *whistles*) and Evangeline Anderson's Kindred series. In a good way.Quick and sci-fi and sexy and a great summer read.
This was a good read. I got it free from so was not sure what to expect. The world reminds me a lot of the show Firefly. So if you were a fan of that show you will probably either love this book or hate it, depending on what are looking to get out of it. It is a western sci-fi. Fun world building with a good storyline and interesting characters.
Thief is the first book by Anitra I have read and it definitely won't be the last. I found myself drawn to her intriguing plot and wonderful characters. The sexual tension between Jace and Kraft is superb and I found myself laughing out loud through the entire book. Thief, book one in Anitra's "The Fringe Series" is a definite must read!!!
Browncoats rejoice! Kraft is 60% River, 20% Inara, 10% Zoe, and 10% Simon. Jace is a beefier, more sexually alpha Mal. Heller is 100% Jayne. This was more of a romance than anything else, but the plot had some imagination and characters were likable. Yeah, this was a Firefly remix from the first page. Fortunately for me, I'm a fan.
I liked it well enough, but the first thing I thought as I began reading it was "Are these the characters from Firefly?" Then, every time I started to get into the book some circumstance would remind me of Firefly and I would get pulled right out of the story.
It is so hard to read if you're a big Firefly/Serenity fan. It is so much like the TV series/movie that it's disconcerting. It's still a great read, a lot of fun, good characters and a world I'd love to read more of.
There wasn't enough content to go along with this romance. I like steamy sexual tension just as much as the next lady, but these guys are supposed to be space pirates too! Where is the story?
A romance novel first, and a science fiction novel second. I would have preferred more science fiction and less chick-lit prose.
