Hothar's Folly (Coletti Warlords, #9)
Undercover psychic investigator Casey Jones’ hunt for a traitor in Central Command gets blown all to hell when the crew of the military C130 cargo plane she's riding on tries to kill her. Drawing on her telekinesis, Casey stops their assassination attempt and bails out as the aircraft goes down in flames. Casey meets her new partner at eight thousand feet, when Hothar is suddenly wrapped around her like a limpet. He declares he has come to rescue her from a watery death. All the butthead is going to accomplish is getting them both killed. She’s a battle-tested Siren and quite capable of catching the turncoat without his help.Or maybe not. There’s suddenly a shitload of bad guys trying to kill them. Casey quickly realizes they are an unbeatable team. She’s a bit surprised when the young Coletti warrior brags that he knows how to perform over one hundred sex acts from his mind meld with the Overlord. Does she have a budding Don Juan on her hands? He’s certainly eager to try out every one of those positions. Come to think about it, so is she. But first, they must expose the traitor before billions die.

    Was I ready for another quirky, comedic sci-fi adventure involving a psychic, tough as nails human heroine and a determined alpha alien warlord out to save the world? Really? You have to ask? I was more than ready.Hothar's Folly is book nine in the oft hilarious and definitely exciting light-sci fi Coletti Warlords series. This is a series that works best in order though I suppose one could get one out of order in a pinch. The worldbuilding and backstory of the series does build from the earlier Was I ready for another quirky, comedic sci-fi adventure involving a psychic, tough as nails human heroine and a determined alpha alien warlord out to save the world? Really? You have to ask? I was more than ready.Hothar's Folly is book nine in the oft hilarious and definitely exciting light-sci fi Coletti Warlords series. This is a series that works best in order though I suppose one could get one out of order in a pinch. The worldbuilding and backstory of the series does build from the earlier books and some things only make sense or have significance when read in order.So, this is young Hothar and Casey's stories. Hothar was introduced in book three and Casey along the way. It was neat getting a better look at Casey's background and what her particular psychic gifts could do. Instead of taking the adventure offworld like most of the books do, Casey and Hothar are part of the group rooting out betrayers and opportunists on earth who are selling out their own people to man-eating Rodans and traitorous Coletti while plotting to take over the planet. There are moles in both the earth defense military and within the Coletti and they have a part in discovering who those folk are, too.Casey is on a mission to discover who the head of the Earth First terrorist organization is when she is made and is in a dangerous spot with no back up. Hothar, on his own mission nearby, arrives and helps her out of a jam. He figures out fast that she is his mate match and Casey gives him sass because she has no plans to be carted off by one of the Coletti. They are both too young so Casey has some time if they can manage to keep their hands off each other and stay alive when someone ruthlessly plans to kill Casey. Casey and Hothar soon learn that fighting alien and human adult enemies with weapons is nothing compared to babysitting duty, but somewhere along the line, Casey might have gotten attached to the big lug.I had so much fun with this one. Hothar was a favorite side character earlier in the series and I was tickled that it was his turn to find his match while getting some action. Casey is definitely a challenge. She is a trouble magnet and she comes with some powerful psychic gifts. She was also adopted by Uncle Saul just as Hothar is the Coletti High Commander's nephew. They were fun together and had me laughing when they can't stay out of trouble whether it is the amorous or the adventure kind. It was fun getting the scenes with Kaylee, Adan, and a feisty newcomer who seems to have Uncle Saul's number.The pacing is swift, but not at the expense of story development. The humor is fun even- maybe especially- in the face of tight situations. The romance was less spicy in this one because of their age, but not absent. This was an all-around good time. I continue to look forward to ongoing stories in the Coletti Warlords' universe and thoroughly enjoy the light sci-fi romantic comedy style. I can definitely recommend these to others who want an easy and laugh out loud read along with an alien romance.My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Rating: 4 starsA friend lent me her copy of this book. Which was good because while I had read the previous books, this one wasn’t on my radar. I actually ended up liking it. I found it a fun read. Yes, the author has a tendency to recycle themes and events from previous stories, but I still find enjoyment in reading each new adventure. I really love the set up for the next installment and cannot wait to read Uncle Saul’s story. Should be fun.

    Great imaginative storyLove the humor! Hard to review loved the whole storyline the new people being introduced is great. I can't wait till Saul's story looking forward for that. Now the downside as always with Ms. Koger, is having to wait for the next book.I love her humorThe only complaint is that this didn't feel like a complete story or rather shorten because of the way it ended will be expecting more about Hothur and Casey ...hopefully😉 with uncle Saul and Annie.

    Ms Gail this book was a teaser and now I have to wait for the next book. Hothar's Folly is another laugh out loud book in the Coletti Warlords series. Thor and Haki stole the show. Since Casey is under 21, she and Hothar are not allowed to complete their mating, so we have to wait for the follow up story to find out how they do. Gotta love the Overlord. Hopefully they will complete the mating in the next book (Sassing Saul).

    Hothar’s Folly is a hoot!Gail Koger does it again. Laugh out loud funny banter and on time quips make this read truly enjoyable. New characters and visits from some of our favorites make this story complete.

    Entertaining, but repetitiveAs much as I enjoy the humor, the series has gotten extremely repetitive. It goes from one action scene to another, no time to flesh out scenes, let alone characters. The heroes and heroines are basically the same characters in each book. Obsession with chocolate gets old fast. It would be nice to see character growth in future books, or even some new plot lines, but 9 books in, and I think the likelihood is low. All that aside, I did enjoy the read, might rate higher Entertaining, but repetitiveAs much as I enjoy the humor, the series has gotten extremely repetitive.

    Awesome BookI love this series because the characters are fascinating and the humour is laugh out loud outrageous. There is also a great storyline, which is fast paced. I could not put it down until I had finished the book. I am so looking forward to Saul's book.
