This romantic adventure follows Commander R’cey Hawke, bounty hunter. She leads a mission to a backwater world to retrieve one of the Amalgam’s most wanted. When her space vessel crash lands, R’cey must work with a group of locals who believe in magic, of all things. R’cey soon finds herself on an epic quest that takes her across unbelievable realms. Battles with harpies, imps, golems, and the Demon Aamon, open her eyes to possibilities other than her own version of reality.
Princess Thalia Dumont’s pact with an assassin has an unexpected result. That ill-conceived bargain forces her on a dangerous journey. King Lotar lies under a dark spell and Thalia must find the cure. Along the way, she meets an off-world stranger who will change how she sees the universe.
Fairly early into a story I generally have a rough idea what rating it will receive. Sometimes as I continue that goes up or down. The Flaw in Logic falls into the rare treasures I find that wow me from the first page to the last.
I honestly cannot fault this story and that’s big coming from someone who tends to avoid stories tagged as science fiction/fantasy. My analytical brain tends to pick the plot apart. However, throughout this story I was like… I want one of those suits… I want a dragon… ugh, trolls get them! The setting was so vivid, the characters, creatures and all, were real. My heart pounding, my gut twisted, I shed a tear, I did a happy dance. Oh and I was knocked off my feet when everything unfolded. Nope didn’t see it coming for the life of me.
This action and adventure is edgy, but also has a few lines of humor thrown in at just the right moment. The fact R’cey had a hard time believing in Magic made for a few giggles. Favorite line. “If you’re really magic, why didn’t you use it to fight that shadow thing? You couldn’t have shot fire out of your ass or something?”
This story falls into the lesbian category but sex is far from the focal point. There’s one brief scene between the ladies that can easily be glossed over. I savored it, and it was more than enough for this self-confessed smut lover. Honestly the story didn’t need it.
I’m not going to rehash the plot as I don’t want to give a single thing away! Just read it. I recommend The Flaw in Logic to everyone, regardless of their preferred genre.
