Love this series interweaving fun sci fi with irresistible romance. This space adventure picks up
as the second in a planned trilogy of Hunt the Stars. You just can’t help but smile as you anticipate the human/humanoid alien relationship unfolding, at the same time that you have an intrepid team on a small spaceship doing highly skilled bounty hunting that keeps the plot moving along at a clip.
Here we have two new lead characters from the crew of the ship Starlight’s Shadow: Kee, an intrepid hacker, and Varro, a weapon’s expert. They get thrown together in a dangerous operation to discover and stop the instigator of an interstellar war between humans and Valovians. Varro struggles in his duties to protect Kee, who wildly independent ventures into enemy territory on the space station Bastian alone. You cheer on both their budding resentment turned romance, and their heroics to save both their crew and interspecies peace.
Can’t wait to see which two new protagonists emerge for the end of the trilogy!
