Review: Cyborg Sizzle Series Books 3.5-7 by Cynthia Sax

Normally, I would review each of these books individually on here but these are very short books (under 200 pages) and I was struggling to write a full review for them. So I have just decided to do mini reviews for the rest of the books in this series. So this one will be a little longer than usual because it contains 5 books from the series.

Title: Jumping Barrel
Author: Cynthia Sax
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #3.5
Genre: SciFi
Pages: 45
Read: 2017, January 9, 2021

3 stars
3 stars – I liked it


Another short novella in the Cyborg Sizzle universe. This one is about Barrel finding his mate while on the hunt for a teacher for the orphaned children they are looking after. I really love how caring and accepting the cyborgs are of the children. It is quite adorable watching them bumble along trying to teach them. Overall, this was a short and sweet novella with a hunky cyborg.

Title: Defying Death
Author: Cynthia Sax
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #4
Genre: SciFi
Pages: 183
Read: 2017, January 9, 2021

2 stars
2 stars – it was ok


Another couple that I didn’t really love. Tifara was a pretty dumb scientist. She refused to believe that she wasn’t infected with a virus and constantly went on and on about it. She was a very annoying heroine. Death was one of the cyborgs that I expected to like but he was a pretty boring hero as well. He was just a very flat emotionless character. 

This was definitely not my favorite on this series but hopefully the next one is better.

Title: Chasing Mayhem
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #5
Pages: 177

3 stars – I liked it


Mayhem has been one of the cyborgs with the most personality in this series I think. Him and Menace are two wild friends who can really do some damage. I enjoyed his book and his determination to win over Imee. Imee is a reluctant Retriever for the Humanoid Alliance. She is small, beautiful, and pretty deadly. I liked her. 

This was a good addition to the series and I am very interested in seeing what is going to happen with the rest of the Retrievers. Also the Refuge is a fascinating town and I really want to know more about it and its residences, especially its leader.

Title: Hers to Command
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #6

TW: death of a child

Ace and Thrasher share a bond that they have never acted upon. When they meet Carys the Commander of the Rebel Battle Station they know she is theirs. She is in charge of them and they have no problems following all her commands. I really liked how strong of a woman Carys is. She is an older woman who has seen a lot of shit in her life but is determined to make it better for the future generations. I also really loved that she was the one in control of their relationship and they had no problems submitting to her. 

Thrasher and Ace were great heroes. I really enjoyed their relationship and their struggle to be open with it, especially without Carys around. I hope we see more of these three in future books, especially now that the Humanoid Alliance is finally falling.

Title: Ghost of a Machine
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #7
Pages: 181

3 stars – I liked it


Ghost is the most damaged cyborg from the series so far. He can barely talk and struggles to articulate his feelings. He is easily angered and extremely overprotective. He is one of my favorite cyborgs because of this. I love a damaged hero. Lethe is a strong female who has had to do terrible things to survive. It haunts her and pushes her to save as many people as she can. I really liked both of these characters. 

The Humanoid Alliance is also slowly being destroyed. More cyborgs are free and more mates are being found. Hopefully we see more of Ghost in future books, especially since he can detect cyborg mates.
