Book Review 👩🏻‍💻

Description:
After his unusual reaction to a weapon, Commando Varean Donnelly is accused of being a shape-shifting alien and imprisoned onboard the Imojenna. Sure, he has abilities he keeps hidden from everyone—including the gorgeous doc examining him—because the government makes sure people as different as him disappear. For good.

Imojenna doctor Kira Sasaki knows there’s something different about the handsome commando the captain’s thrown in their brig. She doesn’t think he’s Reidar, although he might have been a victim of their cruel experiments. But when Kira learns the stubborn commando’s racial make-up, she finds herself torn between defending him to Captain Rian Sherron and his crew or urging Varean to escape while he still can.

Review:

Diffraction by Jess Anastasi is the third novel in her Atrophy sci-fi series. And to be honest, they do need to be read in order.

Captain Rian Sherron and his crew are slowly winning the battle against their sworn enemies the Reidar. (Aliens who can shift to look like humans, their goal is to impersonate key personnel throughout human organizations, and take over),  Rian has helped developed a weapon which makes the Reidar emerge and show themselves but has no affect on humans. When Varean has a weird reaction to the weapon, Rian imprisons him on his spaceship. 

Commando Varean Donnelly has been imprisoned aboard a space ship after failing a test to prove he is human. He didn’t react like the aliens either. So what is he? 
And he won’t tell anyone what he is, he’d rather remain in the brig ! 

Doctor Kira Sasaki knows there is something different about Varean, she believes he may have been experimented on by the Reidar. But she doesn’t think he’s a threat to the humans, and nor does she hold with the punishments that are doled out to the prisoner either. But something isn’t right, and the more she finds out, the harder it is to defend him to the captain and crew. And mysterious accidents start happening, so the tests are hampered. 

And there are some hints regarding Rian’s past when he worked for the aliens. So was he experimented on? Or is he really an alien? The action scenes are well written. And there are plenty of twist and turns and the ending …… not what I was expecting
