The author provided me with a copy of the special edition (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
From the lone rebellion of a WorldCoding Cyrbiid, to a besieged, remote Federation Outpost, to the dark magics of the Elite Echelon Military, and to Earth, where more and more awaken; Off-Worlders is an absorbing collection of sci-fi stories.
Fans of Rise Siren Five will love this; as they journey deeper into the characters, worlds and concepts of the first novel of the Disclosure Series. But these stories stand on their own, as a treasure trove of sci-fi gems; sometimes dark, sometimes sensual, sometimes humorous, S.S. Delaunay takes the reader on sudden twists and unexpected turns.
A companion collection to the edgy Sci-Fi Action Thriller, Rise Siren Five.
“Even if you’ve never read the series before, these are short sci-fi stories. That’s always a nice time-spender. The stories alternative from funny to suspenseful to dramatic to meaningful. You’re getting a full meal out of this thing.”
“This writer delivers her tales of adventure with a unique, cryptic writing style that readers will either love or hate. Myself, I find it addictive, and plan to read the next full length novel.”
“The “special edition” includes an origin story for the series, and it points to a wide-open world that I can’t wait to read more about.”

Dr. Ilz, their creator, had wanted more for his creations than the usual human soul snippets used in CyTech.
Suffice to say, he got more than he bargained for. Now embodied with the essence of these ancient beings, their size, strength and intelligence was on a par with, and possibly even greater than, the Giant Ancient Astronauts.
The book is a collection of short stories, presenting the characters of Rise Siren Five in more depth.
With Off-Worlders, S. S. Delauney has created an interesting collection of her Rise Siren Five characters. Off-Worlders is a quite entertaining, sometimes strange read. I loved some of the stories, liked some, did not like one of them at all; my rating for the collection is a solid 4-star-rating. The relevant characters are quite complex, the situations they find themselves in are spread throughout the universe. The reader experiences all kine of emotions; there is fun and magic, tragedy and hope, normal beings and higher instances.
Off-Worlders is a good read for fans of Rise Siren Five, for readers who like the science fiction genre per se and a broad variety of incredible beings in highly unusual surroundings.
