Review: Starblind (Starblind #1) by D.T. Dyllin

My ReviewsA page turner, I can’t wait to listen to more!


Starblind is #01 of 04 in Starblind Series by D.T. Dyllin. All 4 are currently published with 2 of them being on Audible. #3 is in audio production now, with #4 to soon follow. The author has confirmed that #4 is the final book in the series.

 Ashley Holt narrates the series thus far.

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

Warning: SEX!
Yes, both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.

Trigger Warnings
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 Sevis

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!


“I wasn’t a cat and I only had one life, so if curiosity killed me … I was screwed.”


Ash

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.


“Well, I might as well tell everyone since I apparently can’t have any secrets around here.”


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.

Review: Vaulcron (Enigma #3) by Ditter Kellen

My ReviewsA love story between a Bracadyte Prince and a Great White Shark!


Vaulcron is #03 of 09 in the Enigma Series by Ditter Kellen. All 9 are currently published with 05 of them being in audio. The author plans for the other 4 to be in audio by the end of the year. She also plans many more after #09 at this time. Which excites me to no end!
Happy dance

Johnny Mack narrates the series, to include all future editions.

HEA with no cliffhanger!

These are connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is more enjoyable that way, but could be taken as standalones if you absolutely insist. There would be spoilers for the earlier ones if you start in the middle.

Length: 4 hrs and 39 mins

♥ Story ♥

 

Bracadyte Prince, Vaulcron ❤ Mallory “Great White Shark” Cahill

“I’m the Great White Shark. Remember?”

 

Mallory

Mallory Cahill is a second generation reporter who knows the truth about the virus, but doesn’t have the proof needed to bring down those responsible. She just had the story of a lifetime and her proof dropped into her lap. Vaulcron, a Bracadyte, wants to meet and set the story straight about his people. Mallory can’t believe her luck or the immense attraction she feels for him. She quickly realizes how false all the reports are about the Bracadytes and vows not to give away their location.


“Please, call me Mallory.”


Vaulcron

Vaulcron is older brother to Hauke and Naura from books #01 & #02. He has felt the pull to the one they call a shark since he first saw her on the news in the last book. He wants to make peace with humans and keep his people safe, and so reaches out to the human reporter for help. After they are abducted by the military, he vows to keep Mallory safe as well as make her his!

 


“You are aware that I am to be king of Aukrabah once my father steps down.”
— Vaulcron


Time, location, and family are not all on their side. Mallory needs to protect her sister, who has her senses set on a Bracadyte of her own. (I say senses because Amy is blind) Vaulcron wants to protect Mallory from those that seek to harm her just to get to him. The Vice President wants to protect the American population from the insanity that is the President. The human citizens as a whole just don’t want to die from the virus that is at large regardless of where it came from. So as you can see, there is more excitement to be had in Book #03!


“It is the only way,” Vaulcron sent back. “If I do not go, Aukrabah will be lost forever. I refuse to run for the rest of my life.”
— Vaulcron


There is so much more I want to say, but can’t without spoiling something. The list of people I want to stab in the face has gotten longer! I will defiantly have some rants for the Read Along With Me, so look for it over there hopefully soon.


“To bond with a Bracadyte is to share one’s soul, one’s life force. You would forever be a part of me, to know my thoughts, my feelings, my heart.”
— Vaulcron

This is my 4th read/listen by Ditter Kellen, and I can’t wait for #04! Her characters are ones I now hold dear and it’s Zaureth’s book! This cover is the HOTTEST!

♥ Story ♥

 

Bracadyte Princess, Naura ❤ Anthony “Tony” Vaughn

“Every day until I draw my last breath”.

 

Naura

Naura is sister to Hauke from Book #01 which makes her a princess of the Bracadytes. She took blood from Tony in that first book, therefore linking her to him forever. During this exchange, she bared witness to his memories of the horrible way his wife and son were taken from him. It is against the Bracadyte law to take blood from humans as it is also a no-no to mate with one. Hauke and Abbie barely got around this, but Abbie has to forever stay in Aukrabah. Naura knows Tony will never agree to this, but wants Tony anyway!


“Naura differs from the rest of us. The gift she carries inside her is cemented in love and light. It cannot dwell in darkness.”


Tony

Anthony “Tony” Vaughn is Abbie’s Uncle and an ex-CIA operative. His former employment is what has led to the demise of his family, his near non-existence in the human world, and some “connections” that always seem to know what is going on behind the scenes. Tony wants Naura but fights it at every turn because he feels broken beyond repair. He worries that karma is determined to make him pay for the deeds of his past.

 


“You’re not like me, Naura. You’re good and pure, and I’m all that is opposite of that. If I had met you before…before I became a monster, I would have given you everything that you deserve and more.”
— Tony


Naura and Tony are joined by all the characters from Book #01 that, if you have been listening in order, should of grown to love. Braum’s clever deceptions are to be commended. Gryke’s bumbling of common human phrases are hysterical. Vaulcron’s obsession with the “Great White Shark” reporter leaves much to look forward to. I can’t wait until I can get to listen to their HEA stories!


“Chicken,” Naura taunted with a grin.
Gryke tilted his head to the side. “What is a chicken?”
A chuckle bubbled up inside her. “It is human slang for one who is afraid.”


The couple this time around face challenges on the personal level as well as the outside world that all seem to be stacked against them. There is more to be learned about the virus, as well as some secrets being kept by those that are trusted. Book #02 matches Book #01 in the action department and will not let you down.


He suddenly gripped her upper arms and gave her a slight shake. “Don’t you say that.” He shook her once more. “Ever. Do you hear me? You survive. No matter what, you have to survive.”
— Tony


I am glad this series is going on my Read Along With Me list because I really want to comment without spoiling something. I got a lot to vent about Henry! I really don’t like him! Look for it over there hopefully soon.


Breaking off the kiss, he stared into her amazing eyes. “I’ve never known love on this level before. It excites me and scares the hell out of me at the same time. I’m going to be overprotective, unbearable, and a royal pain in the ass. A lot. But I’ll cherish you until I draw my last breath.”
— Tony

♥ Story ♥

 

Bracadyte Prince, Hauke ❤ Doctor Abbigail Sutherland

“Enigma,” he finished for her.

 

Abbie

Doctor Abbigail Sutherland knows her dad is up to something and follows him to work to find that the answer is more than she could of imaged. A human-like specimen is in the lab, waiting to be retrieved by the military. Abbie feels drawn to this creature but cannot fathom why. He seems familiar for some reason.


Enigma


Hauke

Hauke is a type of alien merman, for lack of a better word. The last thing he remembers is searching for his sister and brothers in arms after an explosion. He wakes in the lab to the sounds of Abbie’s voice and mentally links with her and shares the memories of their past encounter. After an infusion of human blood, Hauke is miraculously back from the dead just in time for all hell to break loose.

 


He backed her toward the unmade bed situated against the side wall. “I need to love you now, sweet Abbie. All of you.”
— Hauke


The pair turn to Abbie’s uncle for protection. Uncle Tony is an ex-CIA operative who is a ghost. Seriously, he basically never existed due to his past government relations. With Tony’s help, they manage to get Hauke home under the sea. Take note of Uncle Tony, because you will see him again!


“Te amo’?” she questioned through their link.
“It means I love you.”


Of course it’s not going to be that easy!

There is a lot of action to be had, as well as more characters to meet and fall in love with. The overall story Arc of the Bracadytes and the infection will continue throughout the whole series.

Ditter Kellen weaves mythology into a uniquely beautiful story that is the world of the Bracadytes. The characters are fictional but will illicit real emotions. You will want to rise up on their behalf to protect them from the human ignorance that threatens their well-being.


“You have a strange vocabulary, my mate. I am not certain why they would give me a rat’s ass”
— Hauke


The Enigma series has quickly become one of my favorites! I can’t wait to listen to the next as I devour this series like candy. I want to know how every character’s story plays out!

I can’t really comment more without spoiling something. And trust me, there are things I want to say about some of the people I want to stab in the face, lol, but I will have to make this series a part of the Read Along With Me titles, so look for it over there hopefully soon.


“Do not feel bad for me, my mate. I cannot change what I am, and I sense the love you hold for me inside your heart. Know that I possess feelings for you that you could never comprehend.”
— Hauke

♥ Narrator(s) ♥

 

This is my fourth listen by Johnny Mack, and I’m still loving it! His performance of both male and female character works. If I had to nit pick, the only thing I could say is sometimes the transitioning between narration and Hauke’s voice is not always smooth, which is not that big of a deal, being that it is a transition of Hauke’s thoughts/POV to Hauke speaking, so its all still Hauke. 🙂

Review: Immortal Eclipse by Sherry Soule

My ReviewsWhat does home truly mean to you?


This is a standalone title, with some romance, a haunting, and a whole lot of mystery.

The steam factor is low for those more conservative types out there.

♥ Story ♥
It’s an interesting story with a HEA, but boy was I exhausted when I got there. The haunting is deeper and more twisted than anyone expects. If you like mystery, the paranormal, and twisted fairy tales, this is right up your alley.

Skylar Blackwell is the heroine of the story, and she really does have a shoe problem. Really! She is a photographer by trade, that combines her shoe fetish into what she thinks is her dream career. The paranormal world though has other plans, despite her efforts to avoid it.

Before she knows it, Skylar ends up at the creepy haunted mansion left to her by her paranormal hunting uncle. There she meets the hunky Dorian Delacroix and everything goes to hell in a handbasket. She tries to be a strong skeptic, but in her efforts to not be like her family, and not to fall in love with Dorian, she tends to miss stuff.

There is great efforts put into the details of this story and the writing was very emotionally charged. There is non-stop action and turmoil at every turn. Seriously, I was drained by the end.

I feel like it could have been shorter and made more of an impact, because at over 11 hours, that is half a day of strife. Perhaps an epilogue or something of the like that had some more happy times to soothe the soul at the end. You will need something fluffier and lighter to cushion your heart after this.

♥ Author ♥
This is my first read/listen by Sherry Soule and her writing has great potential. I loved the world and character building and want to check out her other works. She currently has 3 titles on her Audible profile.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Courtney Parker had her work cut out for her, because there were many characters, of various ages and genders, as well as states of being. She does well at portraying the emotions the characters are feeling. I would definitely listen to her other performances.
