will not be disappointed Whereas the first book put me in mind of a sexy, fraught Hogwart s dynamic surrounding the hero, Lilian and her two study mate chums, by expanding her network of apprenticed collaborators here, Lilian creates agrown up circle and deepens her influence in the process I did find myself wishing, at times, that there weredetailed hints at Lucius grand scheme, and it s only at the very end of this book that we are privileged to another clue as to Gariten s past crimes and their ramifications for our hero Stylistically, I hope to see fewer lengthy excerpts from treatises and histories andoriginal but pithy quotes or expositional elements to preface each chapter also, boldface type on the titles of preface sources is distracting, especially when viewed directly above chapter subtitles One can only hope that as these stories increase in popularity as I m certain they will , the author will be able to invest in some quality copy editing and proofreading there are numerous enough misplaced apostrophes, dropped and extraneous articles and occasional misspellings to distract this knee jerk copyeditor while reading Minor points aside, I cannot wait for Book Three Well, this second in a series of books about Lilian, who is wonderfully smart, gifted at self defense, sexy as all goddesses, and who is undertaking a three year trial by ordeal due entirely to the crimes of her father, is excellent Albeit blessed by creative uses of words as verbs and not quite enough commas Set in an imaginary world of 12 star systems and some 23 planets, Lilian is the indentured doxy aide of one of the 200 most powerful leaders most, but not all men , in the systems Each Well, this second in a series of books about Lilian, who is wonderfully smart, gifted at self

Each day she risks losing her life should she fail to follow the very rigid rules that govern the lives and work of indentured workers What I particularly relish is the world building and character development, including a half dozen orsecondary characters.Erotic, but not dark While possibly could be read as a standalone, I recommend you start with the first book, The Cartel The Apprentice Volume 1.Fortunately for me, I ve been home all day with a flu so I was able to read right through Bright Star today when not napping Extremely well written book that has a fabulous Scifi world build, a complicated and engrossing plot will great, great characters This second book is better than the first, which is saying something I can not wait for the third book Some may find the formal wording strange I think it fit the story and world very well The world build reminds me of feudal Japan in its social structure, with a bitmovement up and down the social ladder.Death to Martin, may his

the over all storyline of Lilian, an apprentice ei slave to Lucias Mercio My reviews will be continuations, as well just not time to re cap earlier opinions which still stay strong In this installment the sexual subjugation is still just as offensive but not quite as frequent Lucias, thankfully, is not a cruel man just a demanding one This makes the reading a bit less disturbing but no less uncomfortable Readers continue t 3.5 5.0Because this series is so interconnected and continues the over all storyline of Lilian, an apprentice ei slave to Lucias Mercio My reviews will be continuations, as well just not time to re cap earlier opinions which still stay strong In this installment the sexual subjugation is still just as offensive but not quite as frequent Lucias, thankfully, is not a cruel man just a demanding one This makes the reading a bit less disturbing but no less uncomfortable Readers continue to learn and love Lilian evenin this book Her strength and integrity make her such a sympathetic character that it becomes even harder to read of what she must do at Lucias s command Our abhorrence of how she must give in without question to his sexual demands is amplified because he has a wife and children that he loves We jump from his frequent sexcapades with Lilian to chapters with him loving and enjoying his wife YUCK Now to be fair in their society, this is an accepted situation that no one questions The problem, as I see it, is that while that may be so any woman in OUR society cannot help but take extreme offense at the situation Lilian has NO choice in the matter yet we must watch her as she becomesattached to him and then read about him with his loving wife.Still, aside from that HUGE problem for me, the rest of the story is so well written and enthralling that I could hardly put it down The author has so deftly wound LIlian and her plight into the reader s hearts that we must keep reading if only in hopes that she will overcome and find happiness This is not fluff, not light and easy, and for me, with a rather deceptive classification While the Sci Fi and romance aspects are practically non existent, these books make it up in spades for this shortfall in other areas With complex world building, complicated socio economic structure, written in a formal and highly formalized language and style, full of intrigue and machinations The Apprentice series will either engross or frustrate you I found myself in a first category even though some This is not fluff, not light and easy, and for me, with a rather deceptive classification While the Sci Fi and romance aspects are practically non existent, these books make it up in spades for this shortfall in other areas With complex world building, complicated socio economic structure, written in a formal and highly formalized language and style, full of intrigue and machinations The Apprentice series will either engross or frustrate you I found myself in a first category even though some trends did frustrate me initially after a while, both frequent and repetitive sex times and constant milord became a white noise which I kept skipping or ignoring in pursuit of the story line a small detail became a point of amusement for me in a highly technological universe, with specific nomenclature for measurements, the distance is still measured in inches and feet , prevalent in America rather thanUniversally accepted decimal based metric system I am caught hook, line and sinker This book is not a simple read It is complex and requires concentration That being said, its simply wonderful The author has created an intricate world with many twists and turns where known characters evolve and new ones intrigue An easy five full bodied stars from me, and recommended to anyone who likes clever and unique.This is an independent review and I was not solicited by the author in any way whatsoever. Bright Star by E.G ManettiThis is book two in E.G.Manetti s epic Apprentice Trilogy book three is expected next year I thought this was a well constructed story and not having read book one was not actually a disadvantage although it left me wanting to read book three to find out what happens to Lilian and her master Lucius next You know me, I hate spoilers with a vengeance, so I won t go there Suffice it to say that an Apprentice is a kind of indentured assistant or bondswoman bondsman i Bright Star by E.G ManettiThis is book two in E.G.Manetti s epic Apprentice Trilogy book three is expected next year I thought this was a well constructed story and not having read book one was not actually a disadvantage although it left me wanting to read book three to find out what happens to Lilian and her master Lucius next You know me, I hate spoilers with a vengeance, so I won t go there Suffice it to say that an Apprentice is a kind of indentured assistant or bondswoman bondsman if male who sells their services as a personal assistant for a three year period The duties include those of a carnal nature so it isin line with slavery than apprenticeship in our world E.G.Manetti s characters are well drawn and seeing their personalities develop through the course of the story is interesting Lilian grows from being quite fearful at the start to quite confident at the end and Lucius, her owner, mentor and protector, is responsible for that Their relationship is not one you would expect from master and slave and the love scenes are just that explicit, erotic and yet tastefully written The world constructed here is complex and well thought out, a kind of sci fi, space warrior with ancient Roman overtones The story is full of politics and intrigue and makes a fascinating read Copy is not perfect, but errors are few and minor and did not affect my enjoyment of the story which pulled me inas time progressed At the point of writing this, I am eagerly awaiting book three I want to see what transpires between Lucius and Lilian, find out who the traitor is and hopefully see Lilian reinstated as a warrior with honour Time will tell A five star read for me
