Publisher's Summary

Enki Zakanin just wants peace and quiet. He's completed his mission, and on the journey back to the Kordolian Fleet Station, he'd prefer to be left alone so he can manage the literal demon inside his head. Alone.

So when a strange distress call breaks the silence, his first instinct is to ignore the signal. Why would anyone be foolish enough to broadcast an open signal in the Ninth?

My name is Layla dela Cruz. I need your help.

A human? What in Kaiin's Hells is she doing this far into Sector Nine? Now, somehow, he has to go and get her. After all, he's given her his word.

Contains mature themes.

almost the same as previous book but different

I thought to start off with we were going to have the same storyline as Torin and Persephone but there was only a short part of the book with that type of drama and the rest took on A personality of it's own.
once again we see recent characters from other books pop in and this time it was Abby.
I really enjoyed the way Ms carven found the way to change up the story and add a bit more difficulty into the mix in regards to the hero.
heroine was a very understanding woman but we were reminded of it time after time..in different ways of course that she'd been through the worst and the attractions she felt couldn't be denied. almost a Stockholm Syndrome example but not really.
J F Harding did an ok job with this book too. when he was talking of previous heroines in the different series he did make different pronunciations and that kind of threw me a little but I had experienced it once before so I kind of expected it. I see there's lots more of Ms carvens book out there but they haven't been converted into audible yet so I'll just have to wait😔😔😔 but I do have one more to go...

Really Good

The second instalment in the Darkstar Mercenaries is all about Enki Zakanin and Layla dela Cruz and it all starts with a distress call from Layla who is stuck in a pod after the ship she was on is destroyed and from there the action begins albeit reluctantly by Enki who just wants to alone to deal with the literal demon inside his head but, he has given his word that he would come and rescue this human stuck in the ninth sector of all places and just to complicate things there are other Kordolians in this sector and they get to Leyla first and the action is fast paced and plain surprising at times from there. i highly recommend this audio book and the series as a whole.

Pre-ordered and not disappointed!

I love Anna Carven’s writing and I’m really happy with the narrator choice for the Dark Star mercenaries.

It was good not great

warning spoiler alert it seemed to me like the story was a bit rushed not a lot of details or interaction with the heroine and the hero just sort of like a rushed love kind of thing. The action is always good and so is the sex scenes, however some parts of the story were left kind of like a cliffhanger not really developed that's what made not so great.

Audio does NOT add to story

Kordolian First Division warrior Enki Zakanin has been acting as host to a Tharian consciousness in it’s second stage of evolution; and he’s been battling it the whole time. He just wants to be left alone, but finds himself committing to rescuing the human who sends out a rescue signal. The human woman, Layla dela Cruz, who has now been picked up by a Kordolian cruiser supporting the old regime.
Enki has never spoken to any human before. Why now? Why Layla? Why does he need to stage a rescue?
Re Harding’s narration: It’s pronounced Zak-a-nin NOT Za-kane-ian; the word is viGilance NOT viLigance (eternal vigilance was hard wired into their highly modified bodies).

Another great book

This Story was so good. I do not regret purchasing the entire series by Carven. I appreciate the attention to detail in every book. The feelings the story evoke throughout are surprising. I actually felt the sadness and joy of the characters in this story bringing me to tears, which almost never happens. I truly recommend it.

I love this series and can’t wait for more

The combo narration for this book was good but I miss the combo from the first 3 books. Their voices brought you into that world. Such that I repeated listen to them. Definitely recommend this series!!

This series is amazing!

From the time I found Anna Carven’s Dark Planet Warriors with the spin off Dark Star Mercenaries I was hooked! The storytelling is rich and engaging and I felt like I stepped right into the universe from the first chapter of the first book! J.F. Harding is an amazing narrator and he adds a while new level of sexiness and intensity to the books. Read the Dark Planet series first and you won’t be disappointed!!

Slow burn

Solid book in the series with a nice slow burn. It did drag a bit at the end (last 3-4 chapters), but otherwise very enjoyable story with great narration.

What I didn't realize is that this series is the sequel to the Dark Planet series. It wasn't noticeable in the first book, but there are so many characters and universe events/references in this book that it became apparent I would've gotten more out of it if I had listened to the Dark Planet series first. Regardless, there is only one more book after this one so I'm going to finish it before going back to what are now the prequels for me.

Better Than Book One

I love the fact that the ‘Dark Planet Warriors’ series continues with this ‘Darkstar Mercenaries’ series. I was a little disappointed in book one but this book is much better. Layla is a woman determined to make her life better one way or the other; either by moving to the other side of the galaxy or killing her enemy. She doesn’t wait to be saved. I like it when the Kordolian first division soldiers find strong mates.

I’m enjoying this second series

The narrator’s voice for Inke and Loden are great. He still needs to work on his female voices a bit. Lela sounds whiny and Abby sounds like a muppet. Alex was fine but still kind of weak, but fitting for the character. The romance is good. Build is okay. Kinda falls fast though making the climax fall a bit flat.

Great Story in This Series

loved the Dark Warriors books, and i am glad the story continues in this series. I enjoy the way each book is a story but the overall story keeps going forward.
