Twelve years on the prison planet Erebus makes a man long for death. The worst part for Tannin Everette is that he was framed for murder. He’s innocent. When the ship Imojenna lands for emergency repairs, Tannin risks everything to escape…only to find himself face to face with the captain’s undeniably gorgeous sister.
Zahli Sherron isn’t planning on turning Tannin in. In fact, she actually believes him. Sure, he’s sexy as every kind of sin, but he’s no criminal—so she hides him. But no one escapes from Erebus and lives to tell about it. With every day that passes, Zahli further risks the lives of the entire crew…even as she falls in love with a man she can never have for herself.
I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.
I think that Atrophy is the beginning book in a promising series! While some things have been concluded, some others have been left wide open! :)
Also, I'm asking myself the why of the title... Nothing is atrophying here... maybe it has some... ...more

I'm always on the look for a new sci-fi romance to fall in love with. This is the book. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this book. The best way I can think to describe it, it's like a darker twisted version of Firefly meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers (both of which I lov... ...more

I’ve always been a lover of sci-fi stories. Adventures of space travelers boldly going where no man (Or woman!) have gone before, discovering new planets, and all that jazz has always been a fun escape for me. Unfortunately, they all seem to be lacking one thing: Romance. Why, I have no clue. All... ...more

Atrophy is part Science Fiction Romance and part Space Opera. Zahli and Tannin are attracted but there is a big problem. That problem is found in Zahli’s brother, Rian, who is the captain of the space ship Imojenna. The Space Opera part is the quest Rian is one. I found Rian the most complex char... ...more

Any one who has ever craved for more of this space Western drama television series + movie will LOVE Atrophy. Rogue space bad boys, ass kicking women, mysterious and evolved beings and... ...more
Best science fiction romance book by Jess Anastasi that I have read. If you loved Joss Whedon's FireFly series or his Serenity movie, than this is a book that needs to be on your radar. Full review to come. ...more
I read the number two book (Quantum) in this series awhile ago and really liked it. Then a short time ago, the publisher asked if I'd like to read the third book (Diffraction) and do a review. And, of course, I said yes! I thought perhaps I should go back and read book number one so I would have... ...more
I am a sucker for all things Sci-Fi and always on the hunt for new authors so this was right up my alley! Thinks rag tag space rebels with more baggage than is healthy and add in sneaky alien invasions (a la Body Snatchers style) and you've got yourself a winner.
The Imojenna is a piece of space... ...more

If Mal Reynolds went really, really dark, and if the Reavers were shapeshifting aliens who had infiltrated the government (wait, that sort of happened) then you’d get something like Atrophy.
Or at least, that’s the way it feels. So for those of you who have n... ...more

The rag-tag crew of misfits in ATROPHY brought back echoes of the tv series FIREFLY and SERENITY, but with a quirkier, edgier cast of characters and I loved every word! Lots of snark, unexpected humor, action and alien baddies bumped this well-balanced sci-fi romance series up on my TBR list-defi... ...more
3.5 stars. Welcome aboard the Imojenna where the captain is a war hero who may or may not once have been an assassin, has a bit of a problem controlling his temper, some serious PTSD problems and is also on a universe-wide hunt for a bunch of aliens most other people don’t even realise exist! Oh,... ...more

I was provided a copy of Atrophy via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
Atrophy took me awhile to really get into, about 30%. I just didn’t grab me right from the beginning and I had to force myself to stay engaged. Once we got past the 30% mark things changed for me. I’m not really s... ...more
Better than Star Wars!
Tannin Everett has spent his last 12 years on the prison planet Erebus, framed for a murder he didn’t commit but all those years while doing everything he could to survive the conditions he’d searched & planned for a way to escape. Working himself to a position of trust... ...more
Oh. My. Heck. This was a fantastic read! Having read the description before I started reading, I was wondering how Tannin could have endeared himself to Zahli enough so that she was willing to try to hide him on her brother's spaceship so that he could flee the prison planet Erebus. I knew there... ...more

I will always enjoy a well written story with a new twist on things, I like that this story is based in space but isn't surround by aliens. Aliens are a secret race that is just being found.

Exciting, funny and romantic... I loved this book. It is a sci-fiction packed with action and intrigue. Story revolves around the crew of ship Imojenna and their captain is messed up war hero, Rian. Zahli is his little sister and he is a bit over-protective of her.
When the ship had to land on Ere... ...more
