Publisher's Summary

Darkness almost destroyed the galaxy a thousand years ago. He’s reborn; and Nalini just saved his life.  

A captive at the mercy of the Warlord of their multi-world kingdom, Nalini has learned to hide under a mask, a lie. As far as her master sees, she’s his obedient little puppet. Then, she meets him. The male who can obliterate the entire Galaxy. Her world ends that day.  

In the eyes of a young Seer, Kai discovers who he’s meant to be. His future is blood and death; but there’s a female by his side. A female he’d gladly destroy stars for. If his destiny is ruling over ruins with her, so be it.  

Two souls, worlds apart, under different skies. One destiny.  

Warning: mature content. Strands of Starfire is a space fantasy romance with some explicit scenes.  

Note that this series will only include standalone books.

Excellent Sci Fi

Great imagery, love the story line. Only one sex scene, though it was steamy. Nice mentions of familiars, though they aren't called that. I will definitely read more from this author. Voice actors are amazing!!

Bland, boring, pointless

At no point do you actually like any of the characters in this book. The story is meandering and pointless full of convenient plot holes and checkov's guns. Ugh...

Outstanding Sci-Fi Romance

Make sure you start listening to this story early in the day or you might end up staying up most of the night trying to find a good spot to pause! It was that good! I could not put it down once the story sucked me in! Narration was excellent and brought the story to life. This is an outstanding space fantasy romance! There is magic, prophecies, action, love, and wars. It is truly an addicting book that is hard to put down! I’m so looking forward to the next book in this great new series!

Great Audiobook!

I was provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator. I loved this book. I was addicted from the very beginning and it was hard to stop listening once I got started. Shane Wast and Ava Erikson were remarkable narrating this book. I love that it's done as a duet where Ava voices all the female characters who are talking even when it's from the males pov. I absolutely love that in audiobooks. This was a wonderful space fantasy novel with the works. It has tons of magic, war, politics, prophecies, and love. Kai and Nalini give me all the feels. I really loved Kai because he is a very harsh person who is willing to do anything to fight for what he believes in. When he is saved by Nalini as a child, it weaves a bond they will share across galaxies. But what I also loved is that Nalini's glimpses into his future scares her and she sees him a cold blooded killer who bring darkness and destruction upon the world. When their path's cross she starts to wonder who Kai truly is. Nalini is quite wonderful as you see the harsh life she lived and what a strong mage she is and how capable she is of protecting herself. The bond of mind, body, and spirit she shares with Kai is the best thing about this book. I loved their connection, it truly amazing. I couldn't get enough of this book. It was wildly entertaining and exactly what I'd hope for in a sci-fi novel with lots of magic. The story was done really well. I liked reading about how Kai and Nalini grew into the people they become by the end of the book. It makes it easy to connect to them and understand them. The narration was on point and very enjoyable. I definitely recommend listening to this audiobook.

A truly epic sci-fi romance w/ powerful mages!

For anyone who likes Star Wars and sci-fi romance, you will love this one! The author has created a new galaxy far, far away with detailed culture, politics, and magic usage. The early part of the audiobook (about 2 hours) is quite serious in tone because of the slavery and attempted child killing that happened to the main characters, but later some witty dialogue and humor lighten the mood. The slow burn romance is marvelous. Eventually, the few love scenes get kinky and ultra steamy. The characterization, dialogue, romantic development, pacing, and action scenes were all top notch! I love the spunky, independent-minded heroine Nalini and the broodingly determined hero Kai. I also love how this couple’s story is completed in this single book. I totally recommend this to everyone who likes steamy sci-fi romance and/or steamy PNR. The Eris species is just like humans except they are 6 inches taller, have more endurance, and there is magically gifted person is born in 1 out of every 500 million births. These magical users can be telekinetic, telepathic, foreseeing, etc. The most powerful of these mages can access the energy around them, like Jedis in Star Wars. Nalini and especially Kai are among the most powerful mages in the galaxy. There is a terrible, King Herod-like situation going on. For the last thousand years, there has been a prophecy that a powerful dark mage will be reborn and threaten civilization. Therefore, there is a law to kill every mage as a child when they first exhibit their powers. This sets in motion the phenomenal plot in this awesome sci-fi fantasy romance. Don’t miss out on this audiobook, romance listeners! The audiobook is exquisitely duet-narrated by Ava Erickson and Shane East. Shane East has a rich, sexy, deep voice. He gives Kai a gorgeous English accent. Ava Erickson breathes life into Nalini and all the female characters. These narrators did an absolutely perfect performance. They deserve awards for this one. I requested and received a free audiobook copy via #AudiobookObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review. #AudiobookObsession Reviewer

boring

If you like your books 95% uninteresting and then all of a sudden in the last 45 minutes one ridiculous sex scene then maybe it's for you. I felt that this book was really young adult with a 30 second random adult situation tossed in. The story is about mages and magical people who are being killed off because unmagical people feel threatened. Then 2 children are allowed to live. The girl being kept as a slave for her abilities and the boy because he happens to be the bastard son of a powerful man. Most of the book they live there lives separately till the last hour. The h saves a kitten, the H is trying to make the world a better place. She's 9 and he's 30 when they meet the first time, so the whole book they do their own thing till they meet again when she's 18.
