    1 thought on “Pretty Human

    1. Not an easy or straightforward read, ‘Pretty Human’ is fascinating in its mystery and disquieting in what it says about human nature. Set on a faraway planet, in a distant future, what is going on was not clear initially and took some getting used to. The world building is good and intriguing, the characters are introduced gradually, and the background is revealed slowly enough to maintain a certain suspense while ensuring the flood of information does not overwhelm. The main characters are [...]

    2. Difficult one to grade frankly. The author has got an excellent range of vocabulary, and she succeeds in 'world building'. However her writing style failed to always communicate clearly to the reader what was happening.Characterisation: Amal (aka Jem) is a fully fleshed out character. The author success here is using Jem to explore the issue of dealing with being the victim of domestic abuse; within a gay relationship context. While slow to fully flesh out his backstory, I didn't mind. In a way [...]

    3. This review was written for Joyfully Jay Reviews and can be accessed here: joyfullyjay/2016/02/reviewJem is a man seeking a new life, one free from the years he’s served as a dedicated, yet battered, spouse to his husband Bellamy. Bellamy wanted to marry his love, Sasha, but he agreed to marry Jem in order to take his place as second-in-command of the Planetary Union. As we learn via flashback, Jem was subject to Bell’s extreme displeasure with a male mate, and Bell repeatedly raped, humilia [...]

    4. A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsEllis takes Jem home, and thus begins their courtship. This takes time, as per Ellis’ wishes. I liked that. Jem has been so sexually brutalized, eighteen years of abuse at Bellamy’s hand, that he’s unable to sort through his emotions, or even his desires. He feels attraction, but has a metric ton of body issues—to the point that he abhors his own nudity, even as he can appreciate Ellis’ form.As they move forward and marry, Jem’s secrets are standing b [...]

    5. Rating: 3.5 starsPretty Human is a hard book to read. It’s agonizing from the very beginning. All the events are wrap-up in darkness and only little rays of light show through the story. It’s not until the end that the characters find some redemption. The story does have a HEA, but it cost them a lot to get there, and we don’t get too much time to enjoy their happiness. The main plot is described well in the blurb, and it stays on point throughout the story. The secondary events, however, [...]

    6. I was very wary about this book after reading some of it. This not the kind of book I normally read but I did enjoy it. The reason I gave it a three was because parts of it was confusing and at times I did start to give up on reading it but I pushed through the confusing parts and read on. I am glad I did because it was a good book.This book has a lot of self hate in it. Jem views himself as a bad person and hates himself most of the time. But I honestly think that the self hate is not because h [...]

    7. Original review on Molly LollyFour stars!The world building in this story is fabulous. I loved how there’s history included yet done seamlessly so you don’t feel like you’re getting information overload. The scenery is described so beautifully you truly get the sense you’re there. Jem and Ellis love each other deeply and you can feel it coming through in their words and actions.Some of Jem’s actions and motivations were lost on me. However he has a deeply troubled past so he’s not al [...]

    8. Wow. Where do I begin to review this book? Most of the book I absolutely loved. LOVED! The depth of the characters and the story telling was out of this world. What holds this book back from earning 5 starts is the main character Jem. They try to say Xolani like Jem aren't slaves - but it's pretty clear they are, and the transformation Jem makes is worrisome. As well his relationship with Ellis seems just as abusive as with Bellamy except Jem seems to 'love' Ellis. Maybe because he is tired of n [...]

    9. This title was originally reviewed for Prism Book Alliance® I have been in a scifi/fantasy mood lately (in case you haven't noticed). So when Pretty Human came across my desk, I was intrigued. I have never read Kayleigh Sky before, but I love giving new-to-me authors a shot. Not to mention the blurb drew me in. Of course, one of the reasons the blurb drew me in was that it was somewhat mysterious and left me with many questions to which I needed answers. For complete Review see prismbookallianc [...]

    10. loved the story line, the author paints a brilliant picture but the story at times is hard to follow. there is a lot of character jumping and at times it's not clear for a few sentences who's speaking. the story is beautiful and your heart breaks for Jem, Sky does a great job of writting a character split in two emotionally and mentally. a good but at times challenging read.

    11. A very different type of story, kind of sci-fi. Basically a study of a young man who has been used by his family and abused. He doesn't really know who he is. This was very complicated and it built slowly. He meets a wonderful man,who happens to be the King of the planet he crashes on but he stands by him.

    12. This was really excellent. Well written and intriguing storyline. Full of angst and terror and just a non-stop story.
