Skin and Hide - Neena Jaydon 2.5 starsQuick sci-fi read. Villiam and Luke are two shipmates and lovers, but coming from different backgrounds there are rough spots for their relationship. The expectations when they have leave planet side are different and filled with strife as each feels the other is not accepting their viewpoint.Can they find a way to bridge the differences in their beliefs and come together? I thought the setting and explanation of the opposing belief structures of their respective cultures was successful. Villiam seems to come from a modified Roman Empire with Britishisms thrown in while Luke's strict monotheistic culture conflicts with the pantheon of the Empire. I found the resolution to their disagreement to be more swept under the rug than addressed and hoped for more. ~~ A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews
