Now recuperated and promoted, Lieutenant Commander Loralynn Kennakris is on leave, giving her a chance to do a few things she doesn’t have much experience with: resting, relaxing . . . and falling in love. In all the years since they briefly met, Kris has never been able to forget Mariwen Rathor. And Mariwen, now recovered after years of intense rehabilitation, has never forgotten her. Meeting again after so long apart, Kris is stunned to find Mariwen offering her something she’s never really had: a home. But life is never that simple. Ordered to take part in a training exercise with the Karelian military, Kris instead finds herself sent deep into Halith space with Rafe Huron to rescue one of the League’s greatest war heroes, who has been missing for years and presumed dead. When Kris left for Karelia, she told Mariwen it was “practically a vacation”. Now, caught between bloody-minded insurgents, invading Halith forces, and a volatile hero who has her own ideas about being rescued, this ‘vacation’ is shaping up to be Kris’ last....

the bonds of orion loralynn kennakris book 5 Reviews
The first part of the book was a bit unexpected, but I really enjoyed, what was a nice romance. I was pleased and a little surprised, the author allowed Mariwen and Kris’s relationship to develop so well. Once Kris was recalled from leave, the book changed back into the expected military SciFi novel, unfortunately this took a long time to get going. It didn’t help that the story kept switching, from Kris to ‘Colonel Yeager’ to ‘Halith’ etc. To be honest the next 50% of the book was fairly tedious, but it appeared there was going to be an interesting climax. Unfortunately, it turned out to be an anticlimax and a non-ending.After a good start it turned out to be a disappointing story, also it didn’t help that the author seems to have literary pretentions.At times I found his style of writing quite difficult to follow. It felt like he was deliberately trying to make the text confusing, sometimes there were pages that were just meaningless. I presume the author knew what they were about, but he just didn’t provide the reader with enough information for it to make sense. I could have given the first part of this book 4 stars, but the rest was very disappointing. If you are going to read this book I would recommend waiting until book 6 is out. If this isn't within the next six months I will probably come back and change this rating to 1 star.
Where was the editor. I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and looked forward to the publication of this next book. The concept continues to be good but at times the book was almost unreadable. The grammatical errors, the never ending sentences and the sentences that made no sense were so disappointing. I finished the book but I had to work too hard to do it I hope the next one is better. Get it edited better and don’t rush to put it out to the public. I’d rather wait longer and enjoy the product more.
Each book in this series brings with it it's own little treasures. I loved seeing Kris and Mariwen together. I loved the sweet tender moments and the super hot ones. I enjoyed the snippets of the other characters lives. LOVED the Larl! Really, this book offered so much more than the previous ones for me and that's saying something since I devoured them all. (I guess my romance side is coming out.) I'm very much looking forward to what the next book brings.
I have enjoyed reading the series but this book just fell flat for me. I have found myself scheming over parts because it became redundant and overly awkward in parts. The action was non-existent and the suspense was building only at the end. It takes more than half the book for the 'main' plot to start to come into focus, and then the book ends on a cliffhanger. I wasn't very satisfied when I completed it.
