    One thought on “Luminous”

    1. This story was so beautiful and moving to me I was surprised at how much it touched me The whole time I was reading, I kept trying to find something wrong with it, and I just couldn t, until the very end In fact, I thought the ending cut off too quickly I wanted MORE of the story of Jyothi and West This is a very quick read, and I highly recommend that you read it

    2. A curious and totally captivating sci fi fantasy short story, exquisitely done It s available online free on The Book Smugglers site thebooksmugglers 2015 07 l

    3. LUMINOUS by A.E Ash is exactly what the title suggests something shining, something beautiful and bright After reading it I was filled with a joyous afterglow from all the emotions it evoked.What makes LUMINOUS really stand out is that it adds something lovely to the traditionally colder genre of science fiction Space is about isolation, steel, technology and logistics Yet people often forget that in all of that expansive darkness is light that of stars who are warm, life giving suns There are h [...]

    4. I received a copy of this book from a contest at Smexy Books, this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review I had been eyeing it because Science Fiction has been hitting just right for me of late, and because I enjoy my adults a little adultier Also, there is just something about eyes being a defining feature in a science fiction cover that makes me want to grab it up look at that gorgeous cover , just like Lex Talionis or Dark Horse Something about the eyes just captu [...]

    5. Swept awayNever before have I been so enad with a character in so short a space It is beautiful and sad and happy and all those things at once I wish it was longer Great sci fi Great romance.

    6. A gorgeous short story A heroine left alone on a planet for nine years and a very unique hero I didn t mind the short story format, but the end felt a little unfinished But I very much enjoyed this.Review coming

    7. This joint review was originally published at The Book PushersMarlene Luminous is a lovely and lyrical story It s a very short piece, and feels like both a cry out of loneliness and a paean to the power of love The science fiction type setting is both beautiful and very, very spare because it s that spareness and sparseness that sets up the story.Lou I m a major fusspot when it comes to the sci fi romance genre It either has to grab my attention instantly from the beginning and not let go, or it [...]

    8. Summary Jyothi Agarwal left her love behind to work on a research team out in space, feeling she could help out humanity The team determined the proto colony was habitable, but war broke out before further preparations could be made The others on the team returned home for war, taking their ship with them, and they haven t reported back She s been alone on the station for nine years, making daily logs and surveying the land One day, during her terrain survey, she finds an injured man on the barr [...]

    9. I got a free copy of this novella from the Book Smuggler I think, it was a while ago and finally got around to reading it.I have to say whilst I liked it, I don t get the adoration that it has received from other reviewers It reminded me in some ways of some of Robert E Heinlein s short stories.Jyoti is alone on the planet Hestia, the last member of the exploration team Every day she performs the same tasks, sending her reports on the flora, fauna and planet into the ether not knowing if anyone [...]

    10. A sweet, gentle story with an older heroine Jyothi has been alone on a planet for nine years Her routine never varies, she makes her report despite the silence that answers, and continues conducting scientific sampling Until a man crash lands on the planet and upsets her life in the best way possible.To be honest this story wasn t what I was expecting I somehow missed the fact that it s novella length My bad.

    11. Her heart beat strongly, a fiery nova of purpose and hope and yearning, just as it had when she had been a girl You will glide through her prose like a dream There is loss and sadness There is hope and light And they will all converge in this beautiful piece.This is a story that will make you want to close your eyes and savor the feelings it conjured in you at the end Such a gift.

    12. A dreamy and romantic short story with an amazing heroine It left me wanting a little towards the end but otherwise a perfect short read Review posted at The BookPushers.

    13. I absolutely adored this short story A.E s world is richly drawn, the characters compelling, and the themes deeply moving.

    14. Well done, AE Ash.Luminous is a short scifi story that captured my attention and brought me to tearsebooksmugglers 2015 07 l
