AMBASADORA by Heidi Ruby Miller

AmbasadoraAmbasadora by Heidi Ruby Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In a society where breeding and caste are sacrosanct, can you find true love? Heidi Ruby Miller proves you can—in a world with six moons that provides all the imaginative richness a sci-fi milieu can muster. The setting is fantastically painted, concrete, and nothing less than fascinating.

The Embassy coerces broken and remade Ambasadora Sara Mendoza to help squelch the techno-militant fragger rebellion by extracting information from their operative leader. But Sara learns a lot about the Embassy, the system, and her target, and her plans change when she realizes that love is not just an illusion.

AMBASADORA may be billed as sci-fi/romance, but it truly holds something for everyone. The torture scenes are horrifically exquisite, the plot intriguing, the action exciting, and the consummation scene deals out spice in spades! Sara is one tough cookie, and although Sean has a few personal problems, he’s got the right stuff for a hero. I found myself rooting for both of them because Miller not only puts them through their paces, but utterly shreds the hell out of them over the course of this broad novel. As I always say, the basis of drama is conflict, and there’s plenty on every page here.

Our world’s fame-mongering class consciousness takes on stark new meaning when extrapolated to the extent in AMBASADORA. If you enjoy visionary writing from a fresh new voice, I recommend Heidi Ruby Miller.

    So happy you enjoyed AMBASADORA, Lee! Thank you for the awesome review. The second book in the series, titled FRAGGER, will be out in early December. And, I should have one of the sensual novellas from the Ambasadora-verse out next month. It centers around David and Mari.

    So much to write about this world… 🙂

    Jason Jack Miller gave me the idea of using the word “dock” in place of…well, you know what it’s in place of. 😉

    Dec seems a bit too long to wait for the next installment.

    I absolutely loved Ambasadora.

    Will the next book follow Sara and Sean?

  4. LeeAllenHoward Says:

    Heidi’s latest, GREENSHIFT, follows David and Mari. It’s out now, and you can find out more about it at http://heidirubymiller.blogspot.com/p/greenshift.html.

    So glad you loved AMBASADORA, Tina! (I do too) 😀

    As Lee said, GREENSHIFT is out now. It’s a stand-alone novel which takes place a month before Sara joins the Bard. It follows the love story of David and Mari. The next book in the big, epic arc is FRAGGER, which should be out in June. And, yes, Sean and Sara are front and center in that one. I’m very excited.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    🙂 Heidi
