    3.25 ? It was sweet. Seriously. Even with limbs being chopped off left and right, hearts being eaten, barbarians trying to kill them...it still managed to be sci-fi fluff. This is a spin-off series (I read the first of the original) and had zero issues following along, but the...

    Worthy Spin-off Very good start to a to the new chapter of how the feared Kordolians will maintain their dominance in space minus the backing of the corrupt empire. Torin is a dichotomy as a deadly super soldier with a gentle soul intrigued by fine art, of all things. The relationsh...

    Is there anything better than finding a book that gets you out of that book slump? This was exactly what I needed, and I read the whole thing in one sitting and already onto the next one. The perfect blend of sensual, entertaining and sexy. I always find it a bit funny that I need ...

    spinoff of "Dark Planet" series. Appreciated the concept and overall story, just didn't quite work for me. ...

    Torin, the Kordolian with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, is finally getting his chance to find his special someone. In a twist, he has to travel to the dark underside of the galaxy to find her. Because that's the way these lightning bolt matings work. You can be surrounded by a...

    To be honest, I thought I wouldn't like it when I was a few chapters in but then the story got better, more interesting and entertaining with an amazing action I couldn't get enough of it. The story is shaping up really nicely, I can't wait t read the next installment in this series. ...

    Another fun installment in Dark Planet Warriors Universe. Got to love them Kordolians, they are like Doberman Pinchers- sleek, powerful, fearless protectors who can be totally devoted and turn in to playful, gentle companions for those who they love. ...

    This author It's one of my favorites and she does deliver with this new series! ...

    Another enjoyable read ...

    I love the Kordolians. They may be fierce and ruthless, especially the First Division, but when they find their mates, they are as protective as they are fierce. They won't let anyone hurt their mates, and following their General's example, they will wipe out worlds and destroy empires...

    Penelope and Torin Torin sees Penelope trader away by her own people for plasma rifles. Although he's never met her he knows she's the one and he has to save and protect her. This is the story of what he had to do. He's ashamed of all the people he's had to kill, even though he alwa...

    Loved it I fell in love with the Kordolians when I read the first Dark Planet warriors book. I've also read the prequel and the short stories. And I have to say I'm so happy that Anna Carven hasn't stopped writing about them but has actually started a new series dedicated to them. ...

    3.5 stars ...

    Perfection as usual. She is now the undisputed Queen of SFR. No one can write a battle scene as well as her, make space travel sound fun and have me up till 3am in the morning because I just MUST know what is going to happen! I cannot WAIT for the next in this new series! ...

    Didn?t hate it,but unlike Torin found no love here.... Wow,I don?t where others found this soo fascinating, but I found it boring and highly, highly repetitive... Seph short for Persephone ( btw I think I?d much rather have the one with Hades) made me crazy,gods, don?t yo...

    The Shadowkin??? Captures Her Soul? Alpha Alien Warrior??? Adult Sci-fi Adventure Romance???. Torin???, a huge silver, fanged, red eyed Kordolian First Division, Kythian Warrior, is one of the most dangerous creatures in the universe?. Mo...

    From the beginning I loved all the warriors of the First Division, and each one new story is always a must read. Torin?s book starts a new series, and what a first installment. It is a full action packed story, with no real break, they run from traps to a pitfalls, all this is rath...

    Not sure ::spoilers::: I struggled with this one. This is my favorite sci fi series. I have read and reread several and I just love Anna?s concept. Wasn?t too impressed with Torin and Seph. And the first love seen was disappointing. I?m not even sure I can accurately d...

    Not an idiot in sight! Yay! Not one idiot in sight. The last two weeks have seen every book I pick up filled with tstl characters. Authors who think they are creating characters that are spunky and defiant, when in reality they come across as total idiots. Pages filled with one stup...

    Wow. Seriously underwhelmed with this one.... BBW Seph is rescued from an abduction attempt by Kordolian super-soldier Torin. Mutual attraction follows as Seph and Torin run for their lives as they search for a safe harbor. Seph spends lots and lots and lots of time considering ...

    So this was a fun, fast alien love story. Although this is listed as the first book of a series it's pretty obvious that there is backstory to be had from somewhere. Torin the hero of the story is an elite warrior whose nearly indestructible. While working to expose an illegal weapons ...

    This was actually really, really good. I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent world building, awesome characters, well-written aside from a few hiccups, but those are just personal preferences. So. We have an intelligent, feisty, full figured heroine, and I am SO down with that. Sep...

    Another great story! I really enjoy these stories by Anna Carven! The Kythians are like little boys in some aspects, even though they are well known as the most vicious warriors in the galaxy. When Torin encounters Persephone on a grungy crime ridden station, he?s immediately dra...

    I thought I needed a break from romance novels but then I read this book! I'm a voracious reader so I know my interest in various themes runs in cycles. The last month or so has been my slowest reading period. I just couldn't find any new alien romance (my theme of the moment) that ...

    You know how you sometimes postpone a new book by a favorite writer just in case it doesn?t measure up to the others? Well, with this one, have no fear. Torin and Seph?s story is awesome and I have bookmarked lots of pages of delicious Kordolian obsession. As usual, there is an int...

    Not my norm This is not my normal genre of reading, but I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed it. The storyline was exciting and full of fast paced action. Torin was dangerous and sexy, Seph was strong and beautiful, and together they made a fantastic p...

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about this book. That being said, it was missing something for me. That extra bit of wow that made me fall in love just a little more. Maybe it was the fact that they spent the entire book on a ship, and we pretty much never get to see Torin and Seph ...

    Didn?t hate it,but unlike Torin found no love here.... Wow,I don?t where others found this soo fascinating, but I found it boring and highly, highly repetitive... Seph short for Persephone ( btw I think I?d much rather have the one with Hades) made me crazy,gods, don?t yo...

    From the beginning I loved all the warriors of the First Division, and each one new story is always a must read. Torin?s book starts a new series, and what a first installment. It is a full action packed story, with no real break, they run from traps to a pitfalls, all this is rath...

    Not sure ::spoilers::: I struggled with this one. This is my favorite sci fi series. I have read and reread several and I just love Anna?s concept. Wasn?t too impressed with Torin and Seph. And the first love seen was disappointing. I?m not even sure I can accurately d...

    Wow. Seriously underwhelmed with this one.... BBW Seph is rescued from an abduction attempt by Kordolian super-soldier Torin. Mutual attraction follows as Seph and Torin run for their lives as they search for a safe harbor. Seph spends lots and lots and lots of time considering ...

    So this was a fun, fast alien love story. Although this is listed as the first book of a series it's pretty obvious that there is backstory to be had from somewhere. Torin the hero of the story is an elite warrior whose nearly indestructible. While working to expose an illegal weapons ...

    This was actually really, really good. I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent world building, awesome characters, well-written aside from a few hiccups, but those are just personal preferences. So. We have an intelligent, feisty, full figured heroine, and I am SO down with that. Sep...

    Another great story! I really enjoy these stories by Anna Carven! The Kythians are like little boys in some aspects, even though they are well known as the most vicious warriors in the galaxy. When Torin encounters Persephone on a grungy crime ridden station, he?s immediately dra...

    I thought I needed a break from romance novels but then I read this book! I'm a voracious reader so I know my interest in various themes runs in cycles. The last month or so has been my slowest reading period. I just couldn't find any new alien romance (my theme of the moment) that ...

    You know how you sometimes postpone a new book by a favorite writer just in case it doesn?t measure up to the others? Well, with this one, have no fear. Torin and Seph?s story is awesome and I have bookmarked lots of pages of delicious Kordolian obsession. As usual, there is an int...

    3.25 ? It was sweet. Seriously. Even with limbs being chopped off left and right, hearts being eaten, barbarians trying to kill them...it still managed to be sci-fi fluff. This is a spin-off series (I read the first of the original) and had zero issues following along, but the...

    Worthy Spin-off Very good start to a to the new chapter of how the feared Kordolians will maintain their dominance in space minus the backing of the corrupt empire. Torin is a dichotomy as a deadly super soldier with a gentle soul intrigued by fine art, of all things. The relationsh...

    Is there anything better than finding a book that gets you out of that book slump? This was exactly what I needed, and I read the whole thing in one sitting and already onto the next one. The perfect blend of sensual, entertaining and sexy. I always find it a bit funny that I need ...

    Torin, the Kordolian with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, is finally getting his chance to find his special someone. In a twist, he has to travel to the dark underside of the galaxy to find her. Because that's the way these lightning bolt matings work. You can be surrounded by a...

    To be honest, I thought I wouldn't like it when I was a few chapters in but then the story got better, more interesting and entertaining with an amazing action I couldn't get enough of it. The story is shaping up really nicely, I can't wait t read the next installment in this series. ...

    Another fun installment in Dark Planet Warriors Universe. Got to love them Kordolians, they are like Doberman Pinchers- sleek, powerful, fearless protectors who can be totally devoted and turn in to playful, gentle companions for those who they love. ...

    This author It's one of my favorites and she does deliver with this new series! ...

    Another enjoyable read ...

    I love the Kordolians. They may be fierce and ruthless, especially the First Division, but when they find their mates, they are as protective as they are fierce. They won't let anyone hurt their mates, and following their General's example, they will wipe out worlds and destroy empires...

    Penelope and Torin Torin sees Penelope trader away by her own people for plasma rifles. Although he's never met her he knows she's the one and he has to save and protect her. This is the story of what he had to do. He's ashamed of all the people he's had to kill, even though he alwa...

    Loved it I fell in love with the Kordolians when I read the first Dark Planet warriors book. I've also read the prequel and the short stories. And I have to say I'm so happy that Anna Carven hasn't stopped writing about them but has actually started a new series dedicated to them. ...

    This was actually really, really good. I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent world building, awesome characters, well-written aside from a few hiccups, but those are just personal preferences. So. We have an intelligent, feisty, full figured heroine, and I am SO down with that. Sep...

    Another great story! I really enjoy these stories by Anna Carven! The Kythians are like little boys in some aspects, even though they are well known as the most vicious warriors in the galaxy. When Torin encounters Persephone on a grungy crime ridden station, he?s immediately dra...

    I thought I needed a break from romance novels but then I read this book! I'm a voracious reader so I know my interest in various themes runs in cycles. The last month or so has been my slowest reading period. I just couldn't find any new alien romance (my theme of the moment) that ...

    You know how you sometimes postpone a new book by a favorite writer just in case it doesn?t measure up to the others? Well, with this one, have no fear. Torin and Seph?s story is awesome and I have bookmarked lots of pages of delicious Kordolian obsession. As usual, there is an int...

    Not my norm This is not my normal genre of reading, but I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed it. The storyline was exciting and full of fast paced action. Torin was dangerous and sexy, Seph was strong and beautiful, and together they made a fantastic p...

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about this book. That being said, it was missing something for me. That extra bit of wow that made me fall in love just a little more. Maybe it was the fact that they spent the entire book on a ship, and we pretty much never get to see Torin and Seph ...

    Not as good as I hoped. I love Anna Carven books, but not this one. I didn't liked Seph and Torin deserved a much better mate. The action was good and the story itself was ok, but the main problem was the lack of emotions. I just couldn't feel their love. I hope the next one will b...

    Chaotic blend Another First division warrior meets his human half. The book centers around Torin and Seph. She is a fierce fiery 6 ft redhead with an intellectual mind and sharp tongue. Torin is an elite first division warrior, who is easily distracted by Seph. He would move heaven...

    I'm on the fence about this book. It seemed really interesting. And I love the cover. However, while it had action, it seemed to easy. Like everything fell into place a little too well. I found it unrealistic, but then again he is a First Division Warrior, so maybe everything ab...

    Worthy Spin-off Very good start to a to the new chapter of how the feared Kordolians will maintain their dominance in space minus the backing of the corrupt empire. Torin is a dichotomy as a deadly super soldier with a gentle soul intrigued by fine art, of all things. The relationsh...

    Is there anything better than finding a book that gets you out of that book slump? This was exactly what I needed, and I read the whole thing in one sitting and already onto the next one. The perfect blend of sensual, entertaining and sexy. I always find it a bit funny that I need ...

    spinoff of "Dark Planet" series. Appreciated the concept and overall story, just didn't quite work for me. ...

    Torin, the Kordolian with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, is finally getting his chance to find his special someone. In a twist, he has to travel to the dark underside of the galaxy to find her. Because that's the way these lightning bolt matings work. You can be surrounded by a...

    To be honest, I thought I wouldn't like it when I was a few chapters in but then the story got better, more interesting and entertaining with an amazing action I couldn't get enough of it. The story is shaping up really nicely, I can't wait t read the next installment in this series. ...

    Another fun installment in Dark Planet Warriors Universe. Got to love them Kordolians, they are like Doberman Pinchers- sleek, powerful, fearless protectors who can be totally devoted and turn in to playful, gentle companions for those who they love. ...

    This author It's one of my favorites and she does deliver with this new series! ...

    Another enjoyable read ...

    I love the Kordolians. They may be fierce and ruthless, especially the First Division, but when they find their mates, they are as protective as they are fierce. They won't let anyone hurt their mates, and following their General's example, they will wipe out worlds and destroy empires...

    Penelope and Torin Torin sees Penelope trader away by her own people for plasma rifles. Although he's never met her he knows she's the one and he has to save and protect her. This is the story of what he had to do. He's ashamed of all the people he's had to kill, even though he alwa...

    Loved it I fell in love with the Kordolians when I read the first Dark Planet warriors book. I've also read the prequel and the short stories. And I have to say I'm so happy that Anna Carven hasn't stopped writing about them but has actually started a new series dedicated to them. ...

    3.5 stars ...

    Perfection as usual. She is now the undisputed Queen of SFR. No one can write a battle scene as well as her, make space travel sound fun and have me up till 3am in the morning because I just MUST know what is going to happen! I cannot WAIT for the next in this new series! ...

    Didn?t hate it,but unlike Torin found no love here.... Wow,I don?t where others found this soo fascinating, but I found it boring and highly, highly repetitive... Seph short for Persephone ( btw I think I?d much rather have the one with Hades) made me crazy,gods, don?t yo...

    Torin, the Kordolian with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, is finally getting his chance to find his special someone. In a twist, he has to travel to the dark underside of the galaxy to find her. Because that's the way these lightning bolt matings work. You can be surrounded by a...

    To be honest, I thought I wouldn't like it when I was a few chapters in but then the story got better, more interesting and entertaining with an amazing action I couldn't get enough of it. The story is shaping up really nicely, I can't wait t read the next installment in this series. ...

    Another fun installment in Dark Planet Warriors Universe. Got to love them Kordolians, they are like Doberman Pinchers- sleek, powerful, fearless protectors who can be totally devoted and turn in to playful, gentle companions for those who they love. ...

    This author It's one of my favorites and she does deliver with this new series! ...

    Another enjoyable read ...

    I love the Kordolians. They may be fierce and ruthless, especially the First Division, but when they find their mates, they are as protective as they are fierce. They won't let anyone hurt their mates, and following their General's example, they will wipe out worlds and destroy empires...

    Penelope and Torin Torin sees Penelope trader away by her own people for plasma rifles. Although he's never met her he knows she's the one and he has to save and protect her. This is the story of what he had to do. He's ashamed of all the people he's had to kill, even though he alwa...

    Loved it I fell in love with the Kordolians when I read the first Dark Planet warriors book. I've also read the prequel and the short stories. And I have to say I'm so happy that Anna Carven hasn't stopped writing about them but has actually started a new series dedicated to them. ...

    3.25 ? It was sweet. Seriously. Even with limbs being chopped off left and right, hearts being eaten, barbarians trying to kill them...it still managed to be sci-fi fluff. This is a spin-off series (I read the first of the original) and had zero issues following along, but the...

    Worthy Spin-off Very good start to a to the new chapter of how the feared Kordolians will maintain their dominance in space minus the backing of the corrupt empire. Torin is a dichotomy as a deadly super soldier with a gentle soul intrigued by fine art, of all things. The relationsh...

    3.5 stars ...

    Perfection as usual. She is now the undisputed Queen of SFR. No one can write a battle scene as well as her, make space travel sound fun and have me up till 3am in the morning because I just MUST know what is going to happen! I cannot WAIT for the next in this new series! ...

    Didn?t hate it,but unlike Torin found no love here.... Wow,I don?t where others found this soo fascinating, but I found it boring and highly, highly repetitive... Seph short for Persephone ( btw I think I?d much rather have the one with Hades) made me crazy,gods, don?t yo...

    Not sure ::spoilers::: I struggled with this one. This is my favorite sci fi series. I have read and reread several and I just love Anna?s concept. Wasn?t too impressed with Torin and Seph. And the first love seen was disappointing. I?m not even sure I can accurately d...

    Not an idiot in sight! Yay! Not one idiot in sight. The last two weeks have seen every book I pick up filled with tstl characters. Authors who think they are creating characters that are spunky and defiant, when in reality they come across as total idiots. Pages filled with one stup...

    Wow. Seriously underwhelmed with this one.... BBW Seph is rescued from an abduction attempt by Kordolian super-soldier Torin. Mutual attraction follows as Seph and Torin run for their lives as they search for a safe harbor. Seph spends lots and lots and lots of time considering ...

    So this was a fun, fast alien love story. Although this is listed as the first book of a series it's pretty obvious that there is backstory to be had from somewhere. Torin the hero of the story is an elite warrior whose nearly indestructible. While working to expose an illegal weapons ...

    This was actually really, really good. I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent world building, awesome characters, well-written aside from a few hiccups, but those are just personal preferences. So. We have an intelligent, feisty, full figured heroine, and I am SO down with that. Sep...

    Another great story! I really enjoy these stories by Anna Carven! The Kythians are like little boys in some aspects, even though they are well known as the most vicious warriors in the galaxy. When Torin encounters Persephone on a grungy crime ridden station, he?s immediately dra...

    I thought I needed a break from romance novels but then I read this book! I'm a voracious reader so I know my interest in various themes runs in cycles. The last month or so has been my slowest reading period. I just couldn't find any new alien romance (my theme of the moment) that ...

    You know how you sometimes postpone a new book by a favorite writer just in case it doesn?t measure up to the others? Well, with this one, have no fear. Torin and Seph?s story is awesome and I have bookmarked lots of pages of delicious Kordolian obsession. As usual, there is an int...

    Not my norm This is not my normal genre of reading, but I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed it. The storyline was exciting and full of fast paced action. Torin was dangerous and sexy, Seph was strong and beautiful, and together they made a fantastic p...

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about this book. That being said, it was missing something for me. That extra bit of wow that made me fall in love just a little more. Maybe it was the fact that they spent the entire book on a ship, and we pretty much never get to see Torin and Seph ...

    Not as good as I hoped. I love Anna Carven books, but not this one. I didn't liked Seph and Torin deserved a much better mate. The action was good and the story itself was ok, but the main problem was the lack of emotions. I just couldn't feel their love. I hope the next one will b...

    Chaotic blend Another First division warrior meets his human half. The book centers around Torin and Seph. She is a fierce fiery 6 ft redhead with an intellectual mind and sharp tongue. Torin is an elite first division warrior, who is easily distracted by Seph. He would move heaven...
