joined an archeological dig on a nearby continent. She meets
one of the leaders of the dig, the attractive Jahesh, and they
are instantly attracted. She also meets a strange woman who
gives her a fertility statue. Will Fala gain her greatest
desires—a child and love?
Ground was an interesting futuristic tale. Although
it stands alone quite well, the beginning definitely had me
wondering about the first book in the series, as some of the
characters from the first book showed up at the beginning of
this one. Once Fala and Jahesh left for the archaeological
dig, however, the story was all about them. I enjoyed the
coming together of these two very different characters. The
sex scenes were very well written, and Fala’s desire for a
child came across strongly. The only thing that marred my
enjoyment of this one was the thin back-story and
characterization of Fala and Jahesh. I wanted to know much
more about them, especially Jahesh, whose briefly mentioned
war service would have been intriguing to learn about.
Overall, Fertile Ground is a quick, pleasant
read for any futuristic fan.
this book stands alone, it is part of a series.*
