Book Review: Machine Metal Magic (Mind + Machine Book 1) by Hanna Dare

Jaime has the ability to telepathically communicate with technology and is on the run from the government when he's taken in by a crew of smugglers and makes a deal with them. But he doesn't expect to fall for the recent crew addition and grumpy but sexy ex-military man, Rylan.

This will be a short review plus a bit of a series review because this was one of those books that wasn’t super memorable for me but was enjoyable, and I liked the whole series.

This one had a good story with:
– Space adventures!
– Action!
– A galaxy shaped by an AI uprising that killed much of humanity in the past
– A character with a sort of supernatural ability to telepathically communicate with technology
– A m/m romance that was nice though perhaps a bit rushed
– Sexy times
– A found family space crew with some quirky characters and sweet dynamics

Sebastian was my favorite character, so I was happy to find out the next book would be about him. By the time I’m posting this, I’ve finished all three books in the series and felt that each one was better than the last with the third absolutely being my favorite.

So if you like space adventures and this sounds interesting to you, give it a try!

*Even though each book in this series focuses on different characters and functions as a standalone, I recommend reading them in order, or you might be lost in regards to the world and character/relationship backgrounds.*

*Rating: 3.5 Stars // Read Date: 2021 // Format: Ebook via TTS*

    Well this sounds cool. I mean, I was intrigued after seeing such a pretty cover but now I really want to check it out after reading your review as well. I think the short length also appealed to me, my brain cannot invest in long stories right now.
