All I can say is wow. This book was so good. It was a roller coaster from beginning to end. Trevyn and Lael’s story was full of adventure and suspense. This novel was epic and if you love space adventures, epic adventure, and love then this is the book for you. I am putting this author on my must read list.

Great read! I definitely need to look into more from this author, because the the characters and the world are so complex that it feels like you have left the real world behind and are now living in the book. I will admit, I definitely skipped a few books in the series, so I can’t say if that would have made this a better experience or not, but I was able to keep up and understand the story none the less. The dynamic between Trevyn and Lael was so well done. I also love it when a book is told in multiple POVs and I definitely think it added to the story here. A fast paced, action filled read that will remain glued to your hands until you finish. Now, I must read the rest of the books in this series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ll admit, I am not a huge Sci-Fi reader, but this book was awesome. I was invested from the very beginning. As if missing three hours of your life wasn’t confusing enough, the sequence of events that follow as Asia tries to uncover what happened and why was a roller coaster of emotion, action, and romance that I will definitely be reading again! The characters are all so complex and beautifully written, making it so easy to get hooked into the story. If you are thinking of taking a chance on this book, then my advice would be get a comfortable chair, a nice snack, and a warm beverage because when you start this book, you definitely wont want to put it down.

While I am not usually a Sci-Fi reader I thought that this sci-fi romance might change my mind and boy was I right. While I have not read the previous installments in this series it can be read as a stand alone but I do plan to read the previous four. This book was full of multiple Pov’s, two broken hearts, old wounds, slavery, shapeshifters and more it really pulled me in from the beginning and kept me turning the pages. This is the first book that I have read by this author but it will not be my last. This book was also full of suspense, mystery, and adventure, and this author weaves a beautiful story full of fantastic characters and a wonderful plot. So if you like Sci-fi or your looking for a new genre to try, I highly recommend this story.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book. Lael Saphora is Hinarr, a race of people who can shapeshift into snow cats. Trevyn Dar is Thane, the race of people who subjugate the Hinarr, and who count hunting the Hinarr in their cat shapes to be the ultimate sport. Star-crossed is definitely a descriptor to use for them.

This story is more than a sci-fi romance, there is suspense, danger, and conspiracy everywhere. There are multiple factions Lael and Trevyn have to beware of, and they are forced to rely on each other to survive. There are interesting creatures, the settings are described vividly, and if you read the previous books, there are appearances by a few characters you might recognize. Definitely give this a read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trevyn Dar is from a planet called Thrane, he is one of the ruling class of the Thrane and is the son of one of the many Ruling Houses, the House of Dar, however, he isn’t anything like his father, known as the Butcher of the Four Systems, or brother and cannot understand their bloodlust or violent way of life, so he makes the decision to escape from that legendary heritage and strike out on his own and is now a member of the Interstellar Council of Abolition and Rescue. Lael Saphora is a woman also from the planet Thrane, however, she is from the other race who live on the planet, she is a Hinarr, a snow cat shifter who shares a mind and body with her Companion and who from a young age has experienced prejudice, violence and hatred from the ruling class who think because they don’t have telepathic abilities, that they are a lesser species and that they are only useful as something to hunt.

One day, Lael is bringing home a shipment of goods which her people are in need of, but on the way, she is arrested and detained by Rescue and her goods seized, however, when she sees that the person who has boarded her ship is a Thrane, she is even more angry. Meanwhile, Trevyn is trying to figure out why Lael has been arrested and when it is shown that she is a slaver, he knows that this is not possible because of her being a Hinarr and realises that she is a victim of an injustice in her own right, especially when he is told to deliver her to the Thrane Inquisitors for questioning. Trevyn knows that if she is sent back to Thrane that she faces torture and a slow and painful death at their hands, so even though he isn’t welcome on his home planet, he decides to escort her and delay her mistreatment as long as he can while he investigates the treasons for her arrest.

As Trevyn investigates and calls in some favours, he uncovers a deeper plot which encompasses more than just Thrane and has much farther reaching consequences than originally thought, but can a Thrane and a Hinarr overcome the barriers between them and a tragic past event to lead the Uprising, or will the conspirators win out in the end? This is a fast paced race to free the wrongly imprisoned before time runs out while love is trying to win over hate and prejudice in this story which will hook you in and take you on a whirlwind ride through rugged terrain and the peaks and troughs of an emotional rollercoaster all at the same time.

This was a really interesting read. The world building is unique and interesting and so was the storyline and plot. However, I don’t think this is meant to be a standalone, and I haven’t read any of the previous books in this series. The storyline felt like a standalone but I think all thr world building has been done in previous installments and I just feel like if I would have read them first I would have enjoyed this book more. This is a Sci-Fi novel, and one that is unique in my opinion just because I haven’t read another book like it before. Overall I did enjoy this book I just think I would have understood it better and enjoyed it more if I had read the first novels in the series before hand.

Sci-fi drama, supernatural and suspense
This is the 5th book in the series. It’s full of suspense, intrigue and action. This story focuses on Trevyn and Lael and their journey to each other while fighting for their beliefs across the galaxy. Multiple POV, which I love, as it gives a depth to the storyline. There are new characters and it was also great to come across characters from previous books. This is a cleverly multi-layered and interwoven sci-fi story that easily draws the reader into a place that’s out of this world.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the fifth book in the series but I was able to pick it up and read it as a standalone. I’m sure I would have gotten even more impact if I’d read the previous books, as I understand some characters from those appear in this book. However, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything.
Superb tension throughout the story. This book had more suspense in it than an entire eight book series I just read that was specifically supposed to be suspense. You don’t want to stop turning the pages, that’s for sure.
I enjoyed that there was depth to the story outside of the romance as they are dealing with some serious subject matter.
Good action. Great flow to the story. Excellent read.
