Series: Project Exorcism, book #1
I liked the idea behind Project Exorcism. Humans have figured out that there are paranormal beings among them on Earth. In an effort to keep the gene pool clean and strictly human, the humans begin the witch hunt which will eventually lead to putting them onboard a space craft bound for a distant yet hospitable planet. As far as Earth knows, four of the five ships crashed and its occupants perished.
Lorelei Janelle calls home one of the planets that got a Paranormal Payload a hundred and fifty years ago. The natives have made many safe guards to see themselves safe. The people of her home planet are forced to live in fear due to a tyrannical vampire sorcerer. They hope the legend that speaks of their savior warriors falling from the sky to come true, soon. She knows it would be a dream come true.
Captain Sevan Vasil has been having very erotic dreams for the past six months, of a woman he knows to be his mate, but he also knows he has never seen her before. When his well maintenance and moderately new ship starts falling apart and in immediate need of repairs he must dock at the first available port. There he stumbles into the woman of his dreams.
Paranormal Payload had a pleasantly unexpected mix of futuristic sci fi and paranormal, with a small side of erotic romance. The ending fight scene left me with a few questions. It wrapped up too quickly and neatly and I was left wanting more. I will read more of the Project Exorcism series. I am curious about how the legend that revolves around the Janelle family will play out. I also enjoyed the storyline of how Earth has shipped off and LOST numerous paranormal beings that they felt were too evil for Earth.
