Reviews for Proxima Five
“This story had it all: an imaginative, adventurous plot, with diverse intriguing, multidimensional characters whose dialogue was very defined and engaging. I especially liked the character development of Keegan and Leah over the course of the story…” – R Sweir at Bold Strokes Books
“With every single Missouri Vaun book I’ve read, I’ve only become more and more of a fan. I don’t usually seek out to read and enjoy any kind of science fiction but I read this because I’m a fan of Missouri Vaun, and I LOVED it! I think because this is also less of a sci-fi book and more of a futuristic apocalyptic situation… I loved the characters – they were strong and fierce and good… The relationship between Keegan and Leah was steamy, and they make a great team!” – Jasmine G at Bold Strokes Books
“I have enjoyed very much the romantic history between Leah and Keegan, both feeling the strong pull between them, both amazed at each other. In spite of being apparently two different worlds, deep down, their mighty sense of justice and their strong will, bring them together and cause that they rebel against the unfairness surrounding them.” – Rosi DePima at Bold Strokes Books
