"Claimed by the Cyborg" took me right off Earth and into the belly of a foreign world and culture. Author Cara Bristol was able to transport me far across the galaxy and into the future seamlessly. Her world building was on key as she game me what I needed to know without going overboard and bogging down the story with little needed facts. This science fiction romance solidifies why I enjoy Cara Bristol so much. She's able to get me right into who the characters are so that I feel I know their dreams, needs and drive to do something.
In "Claimed by the Cyborg" we get right into who March and Julietta are. March used to be a teacher's assistant and Julietta used to be an exchange student to Earth. But one day Julietta disappears and Mach is devastated. Five years later March is now a buff Cyborg after a major event and Julietta is destined to marry who the matchmaker has selected for her. Julietta is the daughter to an Emperor and lives on a world where love is not expected or desired by most citizens. But Juliettea and March still love each other. Can LOVE reach across the universe? And what could be the repercussions on Julietta's world?
I urge you to jump right on board and get into the pages of this story. This is book 5, but feel free to read this one now if you haven't read the others. You won't be lost, just intrigued to get the rest.
I'm looking forward to seeing where Cara Bristol takes me next.
