About the SHEERSPACE series:
Hot as the suns... Cool and sharp as spun steel... The alpha male heroes of futuristic romance will take you to the stars! ASSASSIN'S HUNGER was first published in the science fiction romance novella anthology, SCI FI NIGHTS.


Stripped of her identity by a cybernetic mercenary corporation, Shaxi was a mindless killer until the corporation was destroyed and set her free. Now lost and alone, she desperately needs to master her unlinked programming before she succumbs to the rogue madness. But the electromagnetic storm that might save her also blows in the Asphodel, a sheership with more mysteries and menaces than Shaxi has ever faced…including the enigmatic Eril Morav, a heartless assassin on a quest to save the sheerways, even at the cost of his own soul. Eril thinks he’ll use Shaxi to do his dirty work, but she might be the one being in the universe who can light his black-hole heart.

WARNING: Includes a brooding hero who needs a conscience-adjustment, a kick-ass heroine who will definitely kick his ass, science fiction adventure, and steamy sex scenes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good <b>"Assassin's Hunger" by Jessa Slade. Book 3 in the Sheerspace series.</b> This book was really good. Very exciting. Eril and Shaxi are two very interesting characters. You can read this book as a stand alone, but I think you would understand more of the story line if you read the first two books. Shaxi is a modified human. She's half robot and half human now. But her creators have now been destroyed and Shaxi's programming is starting to fail. Her only hope is a total system sweep, erasing everything...basically getting her humanity back. When she meets Eril, the last thing she expects is for him to get her a job as a babysitter! Eril is on a mission. Kill the l'auraly twins aboard the sheership Asphodel. His cover is set, he's got a job on the ship as auxo. All he needs now is a chance to kill them. When he meets Shaxi, he may have just found his way. If he can figure out how to reprogram her to do his bidding, no one would know that he's the real assassin. But things get complicated when you start to have feelings for the person you are trying to use as a weapon. Very interesting story line. Very imaginative. The scenes are described very vividly so you really get a feel for the sci-fi world. Not sure if there are more books to this series (I checked the author's website and this looks like it's the last of the series) but if there are more, I would definitely keep reading this series.
