Tabitha Lord - Horizon review

This is a new and a new-to-me author and I really enjoyed her book.  I don't read fantasy/sci-fi very often but a book blurb has to grab me to make me want to read it.  This one did and it didn't disappoint! I was immediately captured in the world of Caeli and Derek.  (By the way, her name is pronounced Kaylee, in case you wondered!) There is a bit of romance in this book (YAY!) and it was very interesting and captivating.  I loved getting to read the book from each of their perspectives but also seeing their worlds through their eyes.  Even though it's obviously not real, it felt realistic and it was easy to picture through Tabitha's words. I found myself cheering them on in the missions and on the edge of my seat, so much so that I couldn't put this book down. Obviously I don't pass along romance books to my dad, but when I enjoy a book and think he'll like it too, I make sure he knows about it.  In this case, I bought the kindle book for him. I think this is one both guys and gals can enjoy.  I hope there is more from this author in the future because I'm definitely IN to read books from her!  If you like getting lost in another world, I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Caeli Crys isn’t living—she’s surviving. On the run after the genocide of her empathic people, she witnesses a spaceship crash near her hidden camp. When she feels the injured pilot suffering from miles away, she can’t help but risk discovery to save his life.

Commander Derek Markham awakens stranded on an uncharted planet. His co-pilot is dead, his ship is in ruins, and he’s only alive because a beautiful young woman is healing him with her mind.

As Derek recovers, Caeli shares the horror of her past and her fear for the future. When Derek’s command ship, Horizon, sends rescue, Derek convinces Caeli to leave with him. But his world is as treacherous as hers—full of spies, interplanetary terrorist plots, and political intrigue. Soon the Horizon team is racing to defend an outlying planet from a deadly enemy, and Caeli’s unique skills may just give them the edge they need to save it.
