  1. Tully Vincent

    Corwin Menivie and Nika Santivan solve cases the old fashioned way until they re paired with Westley Tavera and Gavin Hale, the most powerful Reader Ground team on the force While Gavin and Nika hit it off right away in ways that one, Westley rubs Corwin the wrong way right from the start, and not only because he avoids psys for reasons of his own.A bit of a fluke occurs when West s talent reads a corpse other than the one they were there to investigate and puts them on the trail of a brutal se [...]

    Peripheral People by Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore is supposed to be a detective novel set in a distant science fiction empire The novel is not hard to follow, as the essential elements of detectives trying to apprehend murderers is a common fictional trope, but it took a long time to develop and was boring It would have helped for some early identification of the world and world building While the actual investigators were on a ship, there are no sf elements to same The science fiction aspe [...]

    I waited a while to write the review so the book is not fresh in my head any RL sucks Just wanna say the world building is quite extraordinary, but I especially liked the plot West s visions were a very nice touch as well as Corwin s own unique talent What I most like about the book was the characterization though It was a brilliant work the chemistry between Mcs was palpable and because of that, the ending was so much meaningful I loved this book and I hope it ll have a sequel Definitely a mus [...]

    The cover copy could have said nothing than psychic detectives in space and I d have still picked up Peripheral People by Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore By the end of the first chapter, I applauded my decision In the Ylendrian Empire, two teams of detectives work together to solve crime The physical evidence is collected by the Inspectors and the psychic evidence is examined by a Reader Ground team It s not a foolproof system A case cannot be tried on psychic evidence alone but a Reader can [...]

    This is the kind of book that both restores your battered faith in intelligent, well written romance and makes you realize how lucky you are when you find it I bought this book because at RT15 I happened to start talking to the woman next to me about shared reading tastes and eventually she said that while we were on the subject, she wrote queer sci fi romance Reesa Herberth gave me her card and I thought what the hell I found her table later and bought a book.Peripheral People is about a four p [...]

  6. Mandi

    This was good, but I wasn t really feeling the romance I liked the action part of the story, but the romance is definitely pushed back More chemistry between Corwin and Westley would have helped they go from don t really like you to oh wait, i kinda might like you too quick

    5 Hearts Review by RobertaHoly Hannah, this book was AMAZING I read the blurb for this book and was hooked Even better it was a loooonnng book, my absolute fave This book had me so enthralled from the beginning to the very last word Corwin Menivie is one of the highest rated Inspectors along with his partner, Nika Santivan They work on this fly by crew meaning they are on a ship for 6 months getting cases that they are able to investigate and move on from Corwin comes from a planet that holds su [...]

  8. Ambre

    This isn t a terrible book, and yet I really didn t enjoy it The worldbuilding is almost nonexistent I got no feeling for the environment at all They were on a ship, but were they in space or planetside I never figured out what sort of environment they were operating in The theme is adversarial turns sexual, but Corwin and West built no chemistry at all In fact, they were beyond adversarial and into cruel and inconsiderate before they suddenly announced that they didn t hate each other at all an [...]

    4 5This is a sci fi book Then a crime novel And lastly a romance If those genres don t work for you or if that order doesn t suit you, then this book won t I happen to enjoy them all While I enjoy a little romance, it was fun to get into something a little different from my typical mind escape books Of course I read this book out of any order in the series I don t think it mattered too much other than missing some world building staples Luckily, this wasn t my first outer space rodeo and I was [...]

    copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review Peripheral People is an interesting blend of sci fi, murder mystery, and romance novel I m not sure it achieves everything that it could do in each of those areas, but it s certainly a valiant effort Essentially, the narrative follows a team of four investigators for an interstellar body as they dig into a series of murders Two of the investigators are a psy team one has the ability to read psychic traces, and the other serves as his ground , pulling [...]

    I wanted to like this story than I ended up doing The premise is great and I enjoyed learning about the characters as we went alongMy first issue started at page 1 and didn t really resolve until the middle of the book I was very confused on the setting the actual physical place the characters were standing A ship Earth An alien planet Moving from scene to scene was confusing without clarity on where the characters were.My second issue started at page 1 and didn t resolve at all I had a very ha [...]

    I expected a futuristic world where some people have psychic abilities and where some even use their abilities for nefarious activities I believed the story would be of crime and solutions found by the team built of seasoned detectives and introduced psychic agents The story was basically as I expected However it was extremely convoluted and deep, though engaging and interesting I enjoyed it for these elements.The detectives Corwin and Nika have West and Gavin forced into their team to help with [...]

    4.5 stars I have been a fan of this series for a long time and it feels like I have been waiting for this book forever I am happy to say it was worth the wait These books are a loosely linked series of stories set in the Ylendrian Empire, in this book 2 IEC investigators are joined by a PsyActive Agent and his Ground In the process of investigating a standard case Westley Tavera, the PsyAc Agent uncovers another murder and soon they are on the trail of a serial killer What I love most about this [...]

    This book definitely dragged There were scenes that should have been trimmed, and one or two that could have been cut entirely I loved the characters and watching them grow closer, but the rest of the story just went on and on to the point I was bored enough I started skimming skipping but still never was confused about what was going on, though to be fair I had the whole mystery figured out pretty quickly.Over all, not bad If it had been shorter I probably would have loved it.

  17. Jordan Brock

    Beautifully detailed sci fi thriller with rich world building and a twist at the end that I didn t see coming I especially loved the rich way psy experiences were described The authors clever way with words had me laughing at some points and gasping at others.For me, this was an excellent return to reading sci fi after a whole lot of urban fantasy and paranormal romances

  18. Aija

    LOVED this story It was soooo so awesome And all the storylines were so cool and new And they didn t feel forced and revealed each character so beautifully, layer by layer Absolutely worth reading.

  19. Ayana

    The book is quite good overall, except for the mystery part it was very easy to guess who the murderer was, and the detectives didn t seem to get it even when it was already painfully obvious Otherwise, the characters and their interactions were nice and the world building was very detailed.
