Neron Rising (Neron Rising Saga, #1)
“I…am nothing.” He takes a step forward, shaking his head twice, with absolute conviction. “You’re not nothing, Nova.” In the Eon galaxy, Dominion controls any planet with solid Neron deposits, and Nova just found out they’re coming for hers. Korpillion isn’t supposed to have any Neron—the galaxy’s purest form of energy—but Nova Ainsley has been working with the owner of a secret mine for months, building highly illegal weapons that can wield Neron. She wants off Korpillion, and selling these weapons will buy her and her father a ticket to another planet in the galaxy. Neron is incredible on its own, but there are those who can wield it to their will, granting them the ability to read minds, see the future, and destroy worlds—the Nero. But this is a galaxy where they are ceasing to exist, and Dominion owns the last one in the known universe, using him to take over and destroy billions of lives. An encounter with the last Nero shows Nova her future: it’s with him. She will stand by his side one day, her fingers laced through his, love and adoration in both their eyes, a dark queen to his evil, pawn king. Fate or destiny, Nova will do whatever it takes to change their future, and that of the galaxy. The Neron Rising Saga is a series of episodes. Neron Rising is a slow-burn space-fantasy romance.

    I happen to come across Keary Taylor's name back in 2015 when she started her House of Royals series and I became an instant fan of her writing. When she finished that entire House of Royals world this year, I was a bit sad, but became excited when she described what she was writing next.Neron Rising is a totally different genre that I have read before but was very intrigued to see what Keary would bring us. Neron Rising is a Sci-Fi/Romance and is written in episodes (something not to me) but st I happen to come across Keary Taylor's name back in 2015 when she started her House of Royals series and I became an instant fan of her writing. When she finished that entire House of Royals world this year, I was a bit sad, but became excited when she described what she was writing next.Neron Rising is a totally different genre that I have read before but was very intrigued to see what Keary would bring us. Neron Rising is a Sci-Fi/Romance and is written in episodes (something not to me) but still has the depth and attention to detail that Keary has always given us.Neron is told from Nova's POV. She is one of the few who wield the power of Neron - a sought after element that flows freely on particular planets. While Nova uses the power she has for good, there are others who do not. But that is only a part of the story. Nova is connected to another but doesn't understand why. They can talk to each other through their minds but have no clue who the other is. It's all very quite interesting and titillating. I won't give any more details away as this book is very fast, but you are given so many details to help build this amazing story. Keary does a phenomenal job of not making things too complicated with her details and characters. But you will quickly find yourself immersed in this world and enjoying every single thing uncovered.For anyone who is hesitant to read something that has any musings of sci-Fi in it, I urge you to give this book a try. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love this world, the characters and the plot line. I do love sci-fi to begin with, but I have never read a sci-fi book before. Keary definitely nailed this one and I have no doubt will gain new readers because of this series.I can't wait for the new book to come out - I really hope we do not have to wait long. Bravo Keary - you blew me away!!

    I am so grateful that I had been approved to read this because it absolutely blew me away. The front cover drew me towards this book, it had a very Star Wars feel to it and I adore this type of genre when it comes to reading. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I came to the realisation that it was 88 pages long but it feels so much longer than that because of how great the story itself is.I loved the whole world that Nova describes, it wasn’t confusing or too much for me as a reader.

I truly immersed myself in this and got lost in the pages. The characters were well written and I truly felt for Zayne a little when it came to his and Nova’s past. But I could also understand why Nova was drawn to what she did also. I liked the language and the dialogue between characters, the description of the planet and of course the entire existance Of Neron. How it is practically described as a life source, how it powers this and that and how weapons are made with it. It was great picturing it in my mind filled with this electric blue colour that surrounded the galaxy.My love of all things sci fi also includes gaming, hearing about Neron reminded me a lot of “Eezo” or Element Zero from the Mass Effect Series. It too powers mostly everything and is mined. However not to the extent that Neron has however, its the source of life and is everywhere and is used to power practically everything and is also very powerful when in the wrong hands.I loved the episode format, it is very different - it really leaves you wanting more. I will definitely be recommending this book and I was lucky enough to be accepted to read Neron Skies and I simply cant wait to find out what happens to Nova and the mysterious Valen Nero who I need to read more about. This is a brilliant story, and it’s a really great example of Sci-Fi / Romance at its finest and is a great book as a starter in to the genre for the people who aren’t to sure about it and want to give it a try.

    When I first saw this book, I immediately fell in love with the cover!! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started reading it, as I’m usually not a fan of sci-fi or space fantasy. But this book far exceeded my expectations from the very first page. I read it in one sitting because I just had to know what happened. I am eagerly awaiting the next episode.

    I was really, really reluctant to read this book because the genre isn’t one of the ones I generally read in. However, since I have read and appreciated the author’s works before, I went ahead to took the plunge. And, OMG, I am so glad I did! This series is episodic in nature so don’t expect a full book, but there was just so much in this one. Intrigue, attraction, action, and plot just all came together to create a book I didn’t want to stop (in point of fact, I did read it all in one setting)!

And, the characters are so captivating, the swear words interesting (a word of warning: don’t let them throw you because they are unusual), and the universe is so unique. The world is dark but hope is still there. Give this book a try as I don’t think you’ll regret it. Now, I’m just holding my breath waiting for the next book. Thankfully, the wait won’t be long! I highly recommend this book! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

    This is an exciting new series that is told in episode format. The author quickly drew me into the story and has left me wanting more. The author has built a world and created characters easily pictured. I don’t want to say too much for fear of giving anything away. I will say, I’m very curious to see what happens next.

    Wow! I am both in wonder and broken after reading Neron Rising. Wonder because once again, Keary's extremely talented writing has me in awe. Broken because her story has also left me hanging on an edge, like dangling dangerously on the edge of a cliff waiting to see what happens next, because I seriously need Episode 2 now!Keary Taylor is so talented with her writing that every time there's even a whisper of a new book I stalk her endlessly online (Keary, if you're reading this don't freak out : Wow! I am both in wonder and broken after reading Neron Rising. Wonder because once again, Keary's extremely talented writing has me in awe. Broken because her story has also left me hanging on an edge, like dangling dangerously on the edge of a cliff waiting to see what happens next, because I seriously need Episode 2 now!Keary Taylor is so talented with her writing that every time there's even a whisper of a new book I stalk her endlessly online (Keary, if you're reading this don't freak out :) ). Keary has an insane way of getting in your head with her words. You feel like you're always there in the story with her characters. You feel what they feel. You experience every little incidence with the characters. You become the characters, basically. With her newest episodic story, Neron Rising, I'm once again thrust into Keary's worlds and yet...it is very much my world too because it's so easy to fall in love with her characters. I am never disappointed with her stories because I know that even if I have to wait for the sequels, I will always be satisfied with the end.Now, onto my thoughts of Neron Rising:Neron Rising is written as a science fiction, space opera type of story. But don't worry if you're hesitant about the genre. While it is based in outerspace, with a Star Wars kind of feel, the story isn't heavily bombarded with sci-fi jargon where if you're not a big sci-fi fan, you might feel left out of the wording and terminology. But, like Star Wars, Neron Rising is very much a character-driven story, and just like any other books by Keary Taylor, you can't help but root for the heroine.The heroine in this case, is Nova Ainsley, a smart and talented engineer who can craft any type of weapons out of Neron. Neron is a much sought after element that flows freely on certain planets. To wield Neron is to hold great power and at the essence of the story, Nova both hates and reveres Neron. She uses her weapons-making skills in the black market in hopes of getting enough credits to get her, her father, and her best friend out of the galaxy. Why, do you ask? Because Neron is so precious and dangerous, that a corrupt organization called the Dominion harbors it and destroys any planet that has even a smidgen of Neron on it. While Nova works tirelessly to make enough money to leave her planet, she is also connected telepathically to someone whom she has never met. All she knows is that up until a few months ago, the voice inside her head has quickly become a steady companion. She can speak to him whenever she wants to and neither one of them knows how or why. They become fast friends although neither one wants to reveal too much. For the guy on the other end, Nova feels that he's either hiding something or he's protecting her from finding out the truth about who he truly is.Neron Rising is a super fast paced story with Nova as the narrator. There is not a dull moment in the story and you're taken from one point to another so seamlessly, it's like watching a movie in the theaters. The best thing about Keary's stories is that you're so engrossed in the storytelling, that by the time the book draws towards an end, you just don't want to finish the book quite yet. I always have questions after reading one of Keary's stories and with Neron Rising it is no different. I want to know what's going to happen next!As with Neron Rising (and all of Keary's sagas), the heroine is easy to love and support. There's also the reluctant hero and the handsome anti-hero who also gets into your heart. There are a few other supporting characters in Neron Rising, and each of them - main or minor - have their own personalities. That's what makes Keary's stories so amazing - each character is vastly different yet most of them all have a common goal.Neron Rising Episode One has the beginnings of a new love and I just know - I know! - that there will be a love triangle! The slow build of a deep and loyal friendship between Nova and her "mystery" man is very well written. And while she also has an old love turned best friend in the story, I know her old boyfriend won't approve of her new "friend", and that's mainly because of who her mystery man is! But you'll have to read this story to find out who he is and why he's involved.So whatever you do, please, please, pick up Neron Rising by Keary Taylor! Once you start reading Keary's stories you'll want to read all of her other stories. She is so incredibly talented that she can write about aliens, vampires, and even outerspace without breaking a sweat. It's her characters that make you want to come back for more, and more, and more...well, you get the idea.Be sure to get Neron Rising on Amazon when it comes out! You won't be disappointed.Thank you to Keary for the ARC and the opportunity to read another one of your wonderful stories!

Its exciting, realistic and I could easily picture the world the author created.The few issues I faced were, I found some parts of the story was predictable and we sort of get to know our MC in a rush so I dont really connect with her very much (probably because its just below a 100 pgs, so its justified I guess).As much as I liked the world, something I felt off was, we get to know a preview of her surroundings and then MC gets involved in her business and we dont get to know much of it. Again its just episode 1, so im sure episode 2 will make up for it.The whole idea of the story is pretty intrigueing (trust me its way cooler than it sounds in the synopsis), and the author did a pretty good job executing the idea, making it plausible and amazing. The antagnoist...I have a thing for villains, I tend to be more drawn to them than the good guys.sometimes. Its pretty impactful the events surrounding the villain, and I feel we'll have something good coming up in the future episodes (villainish good though).Overall I loved this book, despite being short it managed to hook me in and not leave it till I got to then end.Worth the read!Looking forward to the sequel!Thank you Netgalley ,Keary Taylor and Xpresso book tours for this e-Arc.

I absolutely adored Nova (the main character) from the start, she is certainly complex, leads with her heart and her inner dialogue is very believable. The future world that Keary has created is fascinating! In some elements its typical, tall housing units, bare bones furniture & possessions, and weird genetically modified foods...to name a few. That being said, she did great with creating this world. I love the little details, like how the characters go to the bar to relax with pure oxygen infused drinks, and the spacey "slang" words, and references the characters use and think. Then we come the love story aspect, as with most her stories there is a somewhat forbidden love kindling, which certainly doesn't disappoint. I don't want to get into that too much, as it may spoil the story. I literally can't wait to read the next installment!

When Nova discovers who the man whose thoughts connect with her, she is in shock. He helps her to get off the planet when the Dominion arrive, but she does not quite know what to think of the visions she has of this man. Nova and others are now travelling to find a people only thought to be legends to discover who Nova is.

She is a character that is kind and caring and although she was taking part in some illegal activities she was doing it for her families future.

I like that. Since none of us have ever been to Korpillion, we rely on Taylor's descriptions to take us there, and within a couple of pages, I felt like I was walking the streets of the overcrowded planet. I love that. The characters aren't easy to peg. They have issues. Baggage. I really love that. I cannot wait to read each and every episode Taylor creates, because I know she won't let me down. I love that, most of all.

I’m fascinated by Valen and his role in the Dominion. My only criticism is that there could have been more detail about Nova’s plan going forward to find the Bahiri (no one knows where they are) and why Reena was given a seat on the spacecraft. I’m curious to see if she’s going to be an asset or one of those characters you continuously yell at through your kindle hoping someone will kill off.

As always with Keary Taylor, hints of romance and mystery are woven throughout and I can’t wait to see what happens next in the second episode. A great read filled with cliffhangers – awesome.

The unique phrases made sense and by the end of the book I was definitely invested and can not wait for the next one to come out. It d I went in truly not expecting to like this novella at all.

Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It was that good. For those who are into Scifi Fantasy with a bit of romance, I recommend this book. I wasn't expecting the amount of feelings while reading this book. I can't wait for whats to come.

I read a few sci-fi, so when I had the opportunity to read this one I was really excited. This novella was so exciting to read and it kept me wanting to keep reading. I can’t wait for the next one. Thank you Keary for the amazing books you write!

    To say I’ve been excited for this book since it was first announced is definitely the understatement of the year. I adore a good bit of sci-fi and hot damn Keary Taylor certainly didn’t disappoint with this first episode, Neron Rising. I actually found myself relating somewhat to the main character, Nova and just loved everything about her. Definitely an awesome twist at the end and I can’t wait to see how it all pans out. All I can say is bring on episode two, Neron Skies!

    Im not usually a fan of Sci-fi books, however I am a fan of Keary Taylor so I figured what do I have to lose.... apparently nothing since once again Keary has stuck gold with her book.In episode one we meet Nova, just another girl on an over populated planet, going about her normal life..... Or is she? This fast pased series will leave you wanting more.

    Once you start reading it's hard to put down. It's got everything intrigue, suspense, bad guys and maybe a love hate connection.Nova is living a mundane life on a over crowded planet, working a day job also doing something illegal to get her, her dad and friend to a better planet. She thinks she has a little while but things change and she's on the run.I can't wait to read more.

    So good. Totally not my usual genre, but I loved it. It was so intense, I was so absorbed by all things Korpillion and this crazy universe Keary Taylor has created. I loved Valen, even though I'm not sure I should.

    So good! The way Keary builds the world so fast is amazing to me, before I was done with the first chapter I was sucked in and envisioning this new world. I am excited for the next episodes to come, I am already attached to Nova and ready for the adventure that she is about to embark on.

    This book was really good. I tend to not to read much science fiction, but this book different than the others. I really liked it and I hope there is more to come. 😊

    Wow......oh wow !! The genre Keary has written is literally #unputdownable - I love that it is in episodes (sort of as it leaves me wanting more!!) The whole concept is unique and different ... .the different swear words took a while to get used to but they worked in the end !! I have the feeling that the dad has a lot he is hiding and can't wait to find what that might be (If I'm on the right track....I might not be...) With such a short story the characters are really well fleshed out and you Wow......oh wow !!

    I love Keary work and have been reading her for awhile. I was excited to hear about her adventure in sci fi. And she didn’t disappoint me. It’s takes place on an way over populated planet in a different galaxy. I love Nova she is strong and isn’t perfect but isn’t afraid to be herself. She has two friends one you learn about and one you see at the end which blow my mind. There isn’t much romance just yet. I’m hoping for some next episode. Counting down to the next episode.

    Sci-Fi novels have always been a bit hit or miss for me, however I haven't been let down by Keary Taylor yet so I was keen to give this a go.Glad I did because straight away I was immersed in the world she created. At times it almost felt like I was walking through those crowded skyways with Nova to the ground below, I could see it and almost hear it at times. This is the start of a new series, and this is the first episode, and introduction to the world and characters.

I need to know more about the Nero and the connection, Reena, Zayne, Dominion, all of it. I'm also sure Nova's dad knows more than he is letting on too and I can't wait to find out what. Cliffhanger warning for the end of episode 1 though, bring on episode 2!
