    At just 23 pages The Portal is a super short story, though it is marketed as a novella by Escape Publishing Set in a futuristic scifi setting, Janni is a human in a space wreck and comes up against a Darkon, an alien species whom she d previously encountered This time there s an attraction and they work together to ensure their survival This story is difficult for me to review I did enjoy it but it was way too short I had a vague idea of why Janni was in outer space and why there was a spac At just 23 pages The Portal is a super short story, though it is marketed as a novella by Escape Publishing Set in a futuristic scifi setting, Janni is a human in a space wreck and comes up against a Darkon, an alien species whom she d previously encountered This time there s an attraction and they work together to ensure their survival This story is difficult for me to review I did enjoy it but it was way too short I had a vague idea of why Janni was in outer space and why there was a space wreck, but in the short page count the world building was quite limited As was characterisation and romance development I was aware there d been some form of interaction between Janni and the Darkon previously, which I assume was because she stole something, given he kept calling her a little thief But there wasn t enough back story for me to want these two to advance There s an obvious attraction and a quick sex scene which was quite abrupt The story spans just one scene so it s hard to connect with either character in that short space as well as make sense of the scifi setting which isn t an easy task for me at the best of times The Portal is a well written short story in a narrative sense but its limited page count forgos characterisation, backstory and romance development I m aware the author has a full length scifi novel published with Escape, Legend Beyond the Stars in a similar setting, so perhaps this short story would makesense if you read that first If you re after a bite size scifi story with a quick romp, then The Portal may be for you

    A alien cop, a trafficked earth girl turned thief, and an unseen alien monster who loves to snack on aliens and humans Add a fancy alien swimming pool and some loneliness and it sounds like a great story Sadly, it s so short it skimmed a lot The world interested me, the characters started to and the monster did also, but the whole story was too short to develop any elements satisfactorily for me A lot felt skimmed over, things I would have loved to knowabout I agree with the reviewer A alien cop, a trafficked earth girl turned thief, and an unseen alien monster who loves to snack on aliens and humans Add a fancy alien swimming pool and some loneliness and it sounds like a great story Sadly, it s so short it skimmed a lot The world interested me, the characters started to and the monster did also, but the whole story was too short to develop any elements satisfactorily for me A lot felt skimmed over, things I would have loved to knowabout I agree with the reviewer who said the impaled line wasn t sexy I winced Didn t endear him to me I know the story was short so they were supposed to fall HEA in love right off, but I didn t feel it I was confused by how long they d actually known each other In the beginning they saw each other for the first time 9 months before During the flashback to 6 months before the heroine says she first saw him 6 months before that, making it 12 months, not 9 I liked the author s writing style and the hinted at depth of the world I just wish we d been able to read it I already bought Legend Beyond the Stars so I ll be reading that soon Maybe this one would have been better reading it second

    There was no plot really The prose was, at times, awful, and the story went nowhere Granted, you can t really squeeze much into 30 pages, but that s why it takes considerablyskill to write short fiction than long form The author needed to flesh this story out to at least 60 pages for it to be a viable story If this is what science fiction romance is all about, I m really disappointed.

    In space, salvaging can be big money and extremely dangerous if you board the wrong ship Jann has entered a ship with a malevolent alien hunting her down Enter a portal officer who Jann has run into before to save the day, and her sex life This story is not long enough I would have lovedinformation about the ship and the aliens to see where the chemistry between the two lead characters goes.
