  • I love Science Fiction Romance and have my firm favourites, but I would be hard-pressed to think of another book that really, really blew me away the way Tethered has. What an amazing and original premise and fantastic world building. Fantastic, yes, yet totally plausable because it's fundamentally all about the difficulties of relationships, irrespective, and in spite, of the origins of the participants. Just like here on Earth. Where there's a will, there's a way.I love Tyree and Zander, and I [...]


  • Romance and intrigueDiplomats, warrior aliens, clones, treaty negotiations, murder, scars, and sex assassins. Yes, that's right sex assassins. Who'd ever thought a story with that mix could be highly entertaining?


  • Originally published at Reading RealityTethered is a high-stakes romance between two people who have to discover the depths of their own hearts and the secrets of their identities while dodging assassination attempts and trying to cement a treaty between two interstellar factions who are both capable of tearing the universe apart.After all, they've done that bit before. The treaty is supposed to keep them from doing it again.Tyree is a member of the secretive Inc-Su race. While descended from hu [...]


  • Note: This novella contains triggering subjects: rape, murder, being drugged and helpless.Tyree is from a race that can kill people with sex. Said race makes clone creches, and Tyree is asked to stand in for another member of her creche to complete a diplomatic agreement. Mirsee did not have Tyree's assassin abilities and lived as a dignitary, marrying the human diplomat Zander D'joren. Tyree now must masquerade as Mirsee until the treaty is concluded. She develops romantic feelings for Zander, [...]


  • Being a clone and an assassin is all Tyree knows. It is what she was made for and she isn't used to getting involved with others. Her newest assignment may be her hardest yet. She has just learned a secret about herself and her new assignment is to help Zander make a peace treaty. She has to pretend to be his love who was killed and still protect him. Zander has gave everything for his job and just wants to finish it. Tyree may resemble his late love but she is far from being her. Someone doesn' [...]


  • I got this book thinking it was going to be a great science fiction/fantasy read but aside from some of the world building it's really just about Love, sex and death. The heroine seem to have sex on the brain alot, she uses it in her work as an assassin. You know, it seems her other heroines from her other books had some substance, but this one is what I'd call a prostitute assassin. Why is that? I really don't want to think what I'm thinking. This book had the basis to make one kick ass science [...]


  • Tyree’s world is turned upside down when she learns of her unusual parentage and then is thrown into an assignment unlike any other she’s completed before. Instead of assassinating her target, her mission is to protect Zander, a man grieving the loss of his mate and dedicated to ratifying a centuries old treaty no matter the price.I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance. Pippa Jay has an elaborate style that paints a vivid world around her characters. The setting is interesting with quite a bit [...]


  • This novella was everything I expect from a Pippa Jay story, with the right mix of action and romance. Only two complaints. It wasn't long enough, and I missed having the hero's POV. The story still worked without it, and it would have been difficult to keep it to the required length by adding Zander. Still, Pippa does an excellent job of showing us Zander through Tyree's eyes.Pippa has created a very unique world here, with a group of assassins inspired by the incubus and succubus demons of Gre [...]


  • 1.5 stars. Not putting it on the poop shelf because it's not fundamentally godawful, but it certainly wasn't what I'd hoped for. Just a very flimsy novella - a potentially interesting universe props up a poorly developed plot. Also the sex scenes disturbed me because they skim the lines of consent and I just can't even with that shit. I'd been really looking forward to trying out Jay's work, too. Oh well~.


  • liked this a lot. I enjoy her style and the British influence in her work. This was interesting in that it raises questions about preconceived notions, social morays, and how those can differ across societies and even species. Love, sex and death were among the top contenders. Well written and an enjoyable read. I did feel the ending could have been flushed out more. It felt a bit rushed, but overall great job.


  • I'll be honest; it's been a while since I read this book - almost a year, in fact! What I can remember is that this story is everything you'd expect from Pippa Jay: a coherent plot, likeable, vivid characters, and twists and turns aplenty. And probably the most important factor of this story, for me? It's set in the same universe as Pippa Jay's Traveller series (Keir).


  • 4.5/5.0Listing every superlative from “Amazing” to “Zesty” might just do this novella justice! Read full review in the 2014/2015 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.


  • 4stars inspite of the fact that Tyree is sent as replacement of Mirsee, her 'twin' (podmate, batchmate, or whatever they're calling), to Mirsee's husband (they're intergalactic diplomats). Interesting world, and politics.


  • I like Pippa's stories. I'm not finishing this one due to personal preference ie I don't like story lines where the heroine (or hero) is an identical match to a dead significant other.
