I had anxiously awaited my copy of Pyxis for what seemed like an eternity! K.C. Neal kindly put me on the list for reviewers and I was delighted to be able to get the chance to read this. I really love Corinne and Mason. I cannot wait to see how their relationship grows from here. I do like the chemistry between them. It doesn't come out of left field or anything like that. They have history. It's not a "their eyes met across the room and there were sparks...it was instant true love" kind of relationship. They know each other, like each other, and that grows into a romance. Perfecto!
I really liked the fact that the Pyxis isn't clearly explained. I think that adds to the mystery and intrigue. That is a plus for me because I hate it when everything is just dumped on my lap right away. It kind of keeps me from wanting to read more! So on this note, K.C. Neal got it very right. I want to keep reading and to see what happens.
The supporting cast of characters are all individuals. They don't blend into the background and fade out when the main characters step in. Ang is awesome! She's definitely a friend I'd like to have around. She's got Corinne's back. She's solid and someone Corinne seems to need to maintain balance.
Sophie and her "groupies" are pretty much annoying as they should be. Sophie is the Queen B and she proves it time and time again. Although, I have a feeling there is more to her then we know yet. I think in the next book we'll see some different developments come to light. I cannot wait! I hope that she can become a redeemable person.
So all in all, it's an excellent start to a series!
