Review of CabeX

CabeX was human, then became robot and is now back to human again.  Savlf was trapped for who knows how long in an evil spider’s web.  Both led lives of isolation from other flesh and blood humans.  These are characters who used to be human who went through physical and emotional trauma are now fully human again.  But they are having a hard time with it. 

So, let’s put them together on a mission to save another ship in another galaxy where they may or may not be able to communicate with home or the other ship.  If that won’t get them to work through becoming human again, I don’t know what will. 

Fans of the Project Enterprise series will appreciate learning more about CabeX and Savlf (Lost Valyr) and their hopefully happy ending.  Who am I kidding?  You know how this goes.  Of course it is going to be happy!  The question is, can they rescue Boomer (Cosmic Boom) and his shipmates while getting to that happy point?

CabeX is an all-alien story.  By alien, I mean non-Earthlings.  With no characters that hail from Earth, there is a noticeable lack of the pop culture references I have come to adore from this series.  Which means there is less humor.  But this void is filled with more intenseness from CabeX and Savlf.  There is nothing like looking at the galaxy through the eyes of aliens to help us appreciate our humanity.

Thanks to the author who provided a copy of her book.  My review is my honest opinion.


About CabeX by Pauline Baird Jones

CabeX transformed into a human to save the galaxy. But when he falls for a woman who could betray him, can he also save his human heart?

Savlf escaped the spider’s web but can she elude a past she doesn’t remember? Can she prove to the CabeX—and herself—that she can be trusted?

While they search the distant part of the Garradian galaxy for a lost ship, they discover their biggest challenge might be navigating their feelings for each other.

If they can survive that long.

Can love—swirling between two people who have no concept of its power—break through minds and take over hearts? Or are they so broken that loving and being loved is beyond their grasp?
