5 stars for The Chalice by @PLParker #scifiromance #scifi #romance #bookreview
Title: The Chalice
Author: P.L. Parker
Genre: Science Fiction Romance
Decimated by the savage Deg’Nara and teetering on the brink of extinction, the last surviving males of the once great Chiagan-Se embark on a quest to salvage what is left of their civilization. They send their remaining seeker ships into the void, searching for genetically compatible females. Time is running out, but in the far reaches of the universe, on an obscure and primitive planet, a match is discovered. One thousand panic-stricken women awaken two hundred years in the future, captives aboard an unmanned alien spacecraft bound for parts unknown! How had they gotten there and why? The males thought they came willingly. The females believed they’d been kidnapped. Full of hopeful expectation, the Chiagan-Se prepare for the arrival of their new mates. Terrified and furious at the inexplicable abduction, the women prepare for combat! And when the two sides meet, the battle commences.
On the edge of extinction, the Chiagan-Se know they need to survive, and to do that, they need genetically compatible females to procreate. They send a seeker ship to find these women and lo and behold, a match is made. 1,000 frantic women awaken to find themselves on an alien ship in the future. Why have they been kidnapped and who are these aliens? The women prepare for an interstellar battle of the sexes while the men try to figure out what went wrong. Can the two sides figure out how to live, love, and make the Chiagan-Se a thriving civilization or have they just doomed themselves?
The Chalice is truly a science fiction romance both scifi and romance readers will enjoy. P.L. Parker is a gifted writer, especially when it comes to action scenes. Her descriptive narration pulls the reader in and becomes a part of the story. The conflict between the Chiagan-Se and the females is realistic yet doesn't overwhelm the overall arc of the plot. The plot moves at a great pace with a balance of science fiction and romance. What propels the plot, though, is the story of Tegan and Kara. He wants her to come to him willingly but there's a lot they need to overcome before that happens. If you're a fan of Tiffany Roberts, you'll love The Chalice. Highly recommend!

I write stories with alpha males and strong, determined women. I am a dreamer, an avid reader of fiction, a sometimes gardener and an inept crafter. I live in Idaho. I have a husband, three sons, two daughters-in-law, a granddaughter and new little grandson. Over the years, I taught dance but as time passed, I decided to try my hand at a new endeavor - writing. I enjoy life and all its promises.
