    1. Review posted at The Armchair Reader.I had heard so many wonderful things about the original story that led to this book, and this book itself, that I was almost worried when I actually started reading them that they might not live up to my expectations The first story, which I reviewed as part of the Wild Passions anthology last week and is also offered free when you buy this sequel definitely opened the door to a wonderful story I loved it, but it intrigued me than anything, because there was [...]

    2. I prefer action and science and less cultural exploration in my romantic sci fi A large part of this story was torturous detail and it occasionally made me want to DNF the book However, it was very well written, the atmosphere lush, the characters well developed, and the world building excellent There were a few very basic editorial issues but nothing serious Recommended to sci fi romance readers who have the patience to wade through excessive cultural details.

    3. I don t review many books mainly because as a writer I m very conscious of the fact that a review is simply one person s take on any given book, and an adverse reaction can make a huge difference to the status of that book and its author on I prefer not to use that power But in this case I have no reservations.Recently I read a review from that promised me good characters, plot and world building, and since they are my top criteria especially in SF novels I took a chance on this new to me author [...]

    4. 3.5 stars I bought the kindle edition and it included the prequel, Opening Worlds I love scifi so I really enjoyed this trip to the lush and exotic world of Perelan Starship Captain Jason Kim is unable to resist the attentive interest of Ferran who is different from other members of his race They fall in love and Jason gives up everything to join Ferran on his strange homeland Their love is tested as they battle xenophobic locals, warring House Matriarchs, and the harsh conditions of Perelan its [...]

    5. Changing Worlds is a follow on novel from a short story, Opening Worlds, in the Wild Passions anthology It was my favourite story in that anthology and I was very pleased when Cari announced that she was continuing the story of Jason and Ferran Don t worry if you haven t read that first story because Cari and Storm Moon Press have kindly provided it at the start of the book, so you won t miss out I very much enjoyed re reading the story before I got onto the sequel.This book follows on directly [...]

    6. top2bottomreviews.wordpressCari Z is a fairly new author for me I ve read one other book written by her and I really enjoyed it, so I admit I was looking forward to reading and reviewing Changing Worlds Science fiction romance isn t one of my favorite genres, but I still enjoy them I have to confess that after reading this book, not only am I sold on the author, but I ll have reevaluate my hesitation on reading the genre as well.Jason is a captain of a spaceship that carried passengers around th [...]

    7. This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there.Cari Z is back with her magnificent alien world and a loving relationship that surpasses cultural differences Yes, we get to read about Perelan and all its unique traits.Jason has been allowed to join his husband Ferran on his home world where the matriarchs allowed their union to happen under the promise of strengthening the relations of their race with the humans Jason is put through exhausting and pretty mu [...]

    8. These days, my patience is wearing thin with the M M romance or related to M M genre If the story cannot hook me quick, I just let it go Unfortunately, as much as I enjoy the short story that becomes the premise of this one, the rest of it is slow pace as Jason learns the life of a husband of an ambassador Well, it bores the heck out of me I can only make it to halfway and give up No worries, I m not rating it So feel free to make your own decision on this one Because others will probably love t [...]

    9. This story is easily said amazing in every way I m astonished how immensely well written this story truly is The writing style is realistic and rich with the emotions I could imagine it all The story was detailed and cool Ferran and Jason were great main couple Their emotion of love and devotion to each other, were an constant background reminder.

    10. Very very cool progress and with ending like you could always read new adventures I hope Cari Z will work on it I had really great time while reading it.

    11. OverallHaving enjoyed the short story that this novel expands on, I was excited to hear that Ferran and Jason s story continued And, for the benefit of people who hadn t read the first story, it s included in the beginning of the novel Two for the price of one I had already read it, but I re read it, despite everything being explained in the novel itself for those who choose to skip reading or re reading the short I was reminded how much I enjoyed the short, and with its happy ending, it was alm [...]

    12.

    13. 4.5When I first read Opening Worlds in the Wild Passions anthology, it was one of my fave stories I was so sad it was a short because it had such a great plot to be a great book So when I heard there was a novel in the works, my heart felt super happy Jason and Ferran had in me few short pages, just imagine the impact they would have with their own book.Changing Worlds does include the short where Jason and Ferran meet for the first time, so interested readers can just run out and get the book w [...]

    14. Reviewed on Hearts On Fire heartsonfirereviews This was a very well done romantic sci fi story The planet Perelan has always been an isolationist planet allowing but a few diplomats to live on the planet in a segregated community None but Perels have ever been allowed to live in the city amongst the Perels Jason Kim is a human who has married his Perel lover Ferran and is allowed to live in the Perel city This is unprecedented and not widely accepted by many in the matriarchal society Ferren is [...]

    15. I loved this series It is really a short story Opening Worlds and a novel rolled into one edition In Changing Worlds Cari Z takes Jason and Ferran to Ferran s home planet of Perelan and she delves much deeper into the culture, politics and inhabitants The world building is detailed and paints a great picture without becoming overbearing I enjoyed the two MCs even as the story went on, especially their relationship and the extra dimension Ferran s strong empathic abilities lend to it Add to that [...]

    17. This was for me the best SF MM book I ever read I liked how real the author managed to make the characters It deserves all 5 stars.

    18. Better story telling than the initial short The author found her pace and digs into her world building and characters, while keeping the charm that drew me to the series.It still feels like she is trying to punch above her current weight class as a writer too much telling instead of showing, and I have the feeling she had an underlying idea about gender roles that she wanted to explore, but I couldn t quite catch the gist That said, I m crap at metaphor and subtext On the romance front, I m not [...]
