HEA with no cliffhanger!
This series is only 4 books long and is heavily connected by characters and overall story arc so I recommend reading the books in order. It is not only more enjoyable that way, but you will miss out on a lot of details if you read them out of order.
Length: 6 hrs and 59 mins
Yes, both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.
None that I see.
Please let me know if you think there should be.
♥ Story ♥
Jane ❤ Ash
Starblind takes place in the future many years after the original earth was destroyed. On New Earth, being “just human” is no longer good enough! Genetic DNA splicing is how babies are made in this new world. When children are old enough, they are tested, rated, and classified by ability.
Each book has a different couple as a main focus, but there is so much more to these tales! The characters at the center of the Starblind Series are rebels and dreamers, determined to buck the system of what is expected for what is adventurous.
Audible Excerpt: Starblind
Jane is a Hybrid Human and the owner and captain of The Pittsburgh. Her personality is snarky, rude, impulsive, and totally works for her chosen profession as a bounty hunter. The story starts with Jane in pursuit of one of those bounties, which goes wrong quickly.
Jane wants a fresh start and to be something more than what the tests say she can be. She tested out as a normal human, Species Class 1 out of 4. Most are expected to be Class 2 or 3, so this didn’t leave her many options, friends, or family on New Earth. That’s Harsh! So much for unconditional love in the future!
Ash is Species Class 4, and you will have to listen for yourself to find out what makes him so special! He is the fly in Jane’s ointment when it comes to her bounties. His level of snark and mischief give Jane’s a run for their money! Ash knows there are secrets to be had when it comes to Jane, even if she doesn’t know them herself. The interactions between these 2 are hot and angsty.
The Pittsburgh is basically the headquarters of the story. It has become home for Jane and her 3 crew members. Zula, Jane’s #2, is a Galvraron which are known for their high IQs. Tamzea, ship medic, is a Mazatimz which are known for their empathic and healing abilities. Masha, ship engineer, is a Guaviva which are known for their ability to ‘speak’ to anything electronic.
Each of these females are also looking for a do-over and have sorted histories of their own. All of which I look forward to learning as the series continues.
The Starblind series is a page turner and I can’t wait to listen to the next in the series, Parallax (Tamzea’s story). I can’t really comment more without spoiling something. And trust me, I have a bunch of comments to make, but you will have to go over to the Read Along With Me for it, to be posted soon.

This is my 1st listen by Ashley Holt and she did a good job with story. Her character separation could use some polish, but there are many more characters than your average title.
