A roller coaster ride with a sweet interstellar romance at its core…

Phoebus is a young Aresian escaping from his home planet to avoid executing fellow Aresians as part of his job. He has a Daimon inside him, a very special spirit guide that only occurs once a century. He doesn’t want it, but it has chosen him for reasons he can’t explain. He crashes on a post-apocalyptic Earth, and is taken prisoner by a band of young men who’ve lost their purpose in life.

Marissa is bound to be married to a vill...more

Another great story from Cherie Reich. This short is again about two alien species trying to survive and having to rely on each other. A great love story too.

This is the second novelette in Cherie Reich's Sci-Fi Gravity Series. I did enjoy this short story, you get attached to the characters quickly. In this story two totally different people from different races are running away from their own people, when they become captured. Once again these people end up joining forces to escape their captors. They quickly come to care and rely on each other.
there is danger, aliens, suspense, mystery, and friendship in this short tale.

A sweet story of love at first sight between a human woman and a hot alien guy! Both Phoebus and Marissa are running from something, and this creates an instant bond between the two of them. Will it be enough to free them both?
Just like the first book I enjoyed this one a lot. This time we've got a story of aresian man escaping from his own people and human woman. A little bit of action and romance and we've got another great story :)
