"A superbly entertaining mysterious sci-fi romance that does not disappoint"

Charis is a feline mosaic, that is, she contains both cat and human genes. Her genetic makeup is perfect for certain jobs within the Company. Her latest assignment is simple: to watch and make sure her target stays alive during his time aboard a pleasure space cruise to watch a star explode. Unfortunately, her easy assignment quickly becomes challenging when a person on the cruise suspiciously drops dead and a man from her past, Jason, shows up in the thick of things. Jason knows more than he is willing to say concerning her target and the unusual death.

Charis must keep her target, and herself, alive until the star explodes in a few short hours. The clock is ticking.

I expected Dark Host to be a fun, sci-fi romance, but it is so much more. This novella is part romance and part mystery. Charis and Jason both have dark pasts, which increases the depth of each of their characters, adding to the intrigue of this story. At some portions, I was confused because the world is new and the story starts in the middle of the action. After a few slow minutes of deciphering the world, the story picks up speed, building momentum until the end. Also, Dark Host kept me guessing until the end.

I was not able to put this story down, and when I finished, I wanted more. A great read and highly recommended.

Feline Mosaic, Charis Sur, thought her mission aboard the INS Pagidion would be quick and easy. All she has to do is watch her target and keep him alive until Betelgeuse goes nova.

Simple. Until one of the passengers drops dead in front of her.

Suddenly everything is not simple. Her life depends on a successful mission and she has to protect her target from whatever killed this man. That throws her into the path of Jason Narak, the one man she never wanted to see again. The man who burned her six months before. Yet, even as her past with Jason hurls her mission, her life into disarray, Charis finds that…something…is waiting for them aboard the INS Pagidion.

It calls itself darkness. And it needs a host.
