Machine Metal Magic (Mind + Machine #1) by Hanna Dare
Publish Date:May 3rd, 2018
Male/Male Romance, Sci-Fi
Cover Design: Nastasha Snow
Length: 65,000 words approx.


The galaxy’s a dangerous place. Best not to travel it alone. 


It’s been over a century since the AIs rose up and attacked, driving humans from Earth and leaving them scattered across the galaxy. Humanity survives, but always fearful of the technology that allows them travel among the stars, never knowing when it may turn against them once more. 


An interstellar fugitive. 


For Jaime Bashir, born with the ability to communicate telepathically with computers, his gifts are more of a curse. They also make him a target. On the run, he finds himself among a starship crew, one transporting a mysterious cargo. Even more intriguing is Rylan, the muscled guard watching his every move. Jaime has no reason to trust him, but nowhere else to turn. 


A disgraced ex-soldier. 

Rylan Slate is looking to leave his past behind. Joining a crew of smugglers is one way to do it. But capturing Jaime is both an opportunity and a danger. He starts out as a prisoner, but then becomes something more, testing loyalties in ways Rylan never expected. Will regaining his honor mean betraying Jaime? 







4.5*

This is my first Hanna Dare book and I have to say I REALLY dig her style. 

This book flowed so well, I didn't feel any moments where the story lagged and there weren't any unnecessary dialogue/scenes. 

I adored Jamie, I thought he was a great character and he balanced Rylan out really well. Jamie is a sort of "machine wizard". He can use his mind to "talk" to technology. This isn't a great gift to have in the world he's in. They're considered "freaks" and by some groups, Purists, not even human. 


If caught, he could be sold to the highest bidder, or even dissected by extremists. 

Rylan has the crew of The Wayward Prince on an undercover mission. No one knows what's in this cargo, not really even the ones he's undercover for. Of course nothing gets passed Captain Sebastian Garcia, even if he may come off as a bit "flighty" or "wreckless". I've also got to say that he is by far my favorite character in this story. I imagine him as Robert Downy in It on Man. Kind of cocky, but not arrogant, if that makes sense. He's just a fun guy and his crew is 100% loyal to him, for good reason. 

I just thought this was a great adventure story. Jamie and Rylan find each other, and themselves, with this wacky crew that you just can't not LOVE.
