Review: The Zoastra Affair by Victoria Pinder

A hundred years from now, Earth has trading partners with alien beings, mostly humanoid. However, going into space has brought forth an unknown enemy who attacks Earth at will.

The Zoastra are part of the Earthseekers, an organization originally designed to go into space. Its new mission is to find Earth’s enemies.

Ariel, stuck on a Victorian planet, steals Grace’s body in order to get off the planet. Now Grace must get her body back before Ariel bonds with Grace’s husband, Peter. Then there is Cross, the man on a mission to find those who killed his family. Ariel is attracted to Cross, but she’s stolen someone’s life. What can she do?

My Thoughts:
The story is interesting. Ariel, stuck in someone else's body on an alien planet, is forced to steal another body in order to escape. Now Grace is stuck behind with no way to let her husband Peter know what has happened. As I said, interesting, but the writing tends to ramble on. Things are unnecessarily repeated over and over. The point of view switches between so many characters you're not sure who to care about. And the ending seemed a bit abrupt. Sci-fi fans who can get past the issues I had with the writing will enjoy the story.

My Rating: ***
Steam Factor: !!!
