I just LOVE Prince Seht and Captain Ravnos!!!
4.5 Fucking Amazing Stars


description

“Damn it, Aubrey…” Seht bowed his head briefly, then tossed his head back up, flipping his long hair back. His gaze focused and heated. “I need you to live because”—
he took a shallow breath—“I do not believe my sanity would survive your death.”


Seht and Ravnos

What a wonderful ending to this series. We got to go back to the beginning and see how Seht and Aubrey met and fell in love. And what an amazing story this was. I love a good prequel a

2ND REREAD; APRIL 2014: NO CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS REVIEW

1ST REREAD REVIEW - 14 FEBRUARY 2011
This is still a 4-star read the second time around. It would have been five if not for the reasons Jenre mentioned in her excellent review. I was more aware of the power struggle between Aubrey and Seht this time and was delighted to find I was fully invested in it and wondered how these two uber-alphas would resolve the dilemma.

While I liked the resolution (I had totally forgotten that was how this book en

Although this is actually written as Interstellar Service & Discipline #3 I was surprised and hadn't realised it was a prequel to Victorious Star, which is down as the first in the series. Slightly confusing. I would have liked to have read this first, as it gives the story of the delectable Captain Aubrey Ravnos and equally so Prince Seht and how they met and how their relationship came about.
However, of course it doesn't start there. It starts with a young innocent, unworldly tech boy...

I enjoy EVERYTHING Morgan Hawke writes. This series is my favourite and I wish she would write more. I didn't think I'd like M/M so much. I was wrong. At least, when Ms. Hawke writes it, I'm interested. This was a good pre-quel to Victorious Star which I've read probably about 50 times. Ms. Hawke writes hot and steamy sex scenes. She's one of the few I'd categorize as great BDSM scenes. Her males are dominant and they know it. I like how none of the females are doormats. If the author is Ms. Haw ...more

This book is a prequel to the two other books in the Interstellar Service & Discipline series: Victorious Star and Fallen Star. Whilst the other two books are menages, this book contains only a m/m pairing. You do not need to have read the previous books to understand and enjoy this one.

Lost Star begins by pitching directly into the action of a battle. Our hero, Aubrey, is a young human tech-engineer on a space craft which is under attack from mercenaries from the Moribund Company. Humans in

I foolishly believed Seht was a romantic in Victorious Star. Nope, not so. He's a hopeless romantic with delusions of grandeur trying to make a submissive out of Aubrey Ravnos. Seht in this particular instance is the proverbial one legged duck swimming in a circle.

This is the prequel to Victorious Star & tells the story of how Ravnos & Seht came to be. Aubrey, captured by Moribund, has been held against his will in a form of stasis & forced to submit to the ship's sentience

Absolutely fabulous!! Loved it, can't wait to get into Victorious Star and see what happens next. Liked how we got to know the MCs and introduced to this universe without too much description and explanation. Loved the relationship between Seht and Aubrey and how both were strong characters, neither really wishing to cede to the other and how this was finally resolved.

I loved it just as much as I loved the other ones. Hawke is an amazing writer with the capability to keep you in the world solidly. Love the characters, love the little intricacies that help you to really feel the story. Do not miss this!
Yblees
Sweet! Amazing sci-fi plus m-m erotica. There's lots of great sci-fi out there, and lots of m-m erotica, but a high quality combination of both is a rare beast indeed.

I would rate this 5 stars, but after all these years, I'm still a snob about pure sci-fi not having low-brow smex in it.
Even if it's really amazing man-smex that actually does enhance the story!

This is the third book in the series, but chronologically the earliest. Something I didn't know when I read it, so I was peasantly surpris

I am a fan of the series so I was excited to read Aubrey and Seht's story. I didn't love it as much as the other two in the series but I think that was mostly personal preference rather then any big issues I had. I really liked Aubrey's story even though it wasn't an easy one to read. I would have been nice to have more of Seht's back story. Aubrey's intro into BDSM to help him find a safe way to get past his need to cause pain was really glossed over and I wanted to know more. What happened whe ...more

Loved getting to know Seht and Ravnos better after reading Victorious Star. Couldn't help but feel there was more story to tell in this novel; I felt rushed in some places. Also, the characters once again 'fell in love' a little too quickly for me. Still, loved the characters and it was enough for me to surrender my disbelief.

I actually read this prequel before reading Victorious Star, the longer novel involving these characters, and I'm glad I did because it added a certain depth and understanding to the guys' relationship.

Lost Star is a very well-written story, full of exquisite sci-fi detail and emotional range. The lower rating was purely personal preference--male/male romance/erotica is just so-so for me, plus I'm turned off by non-consensual sex. For me, no matter what signals the body is sending, if

Nothing is what it seems, and the adventures take us through many years but, at the end, love conquers all. And it's not a bad thing that this love is reaaaallyyyyy kinky, possessive and obsessive hahaha.

I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

Such a treat to finally get the Seht/Ravnos back story. Amazing as I expected. Ms. Hawke, once again, has impressed me with her balance of storytelling and world building, not to mention the very, very, VERY, hot sex. Can't wait for more from Ms. Hawke.

This prequel featuring Raav and Seht is awesome. Excellent setup for how the men came to reach the state of their unique relationship. A pleasure to read. Love the series and this is a fine addition to it.

WHHHHHYYYYYY????????
I am really upset at the ending. I was so ready for more and it just cut me off. OAN: Aubrey and Seht were meant for each other. Although I had a hard time getting into the book, i soon found myself lost in the battle of wills between them. The power exchange was my favorite. Aubrey (Ravnos) took control and captured his love instead of submitting to one of the things he wanted most, to be with Seht (the other is revenge!) However, after the drawn out battle between the two,

I have not read the two books that were out before this prequel.

I found myself much more conflicted in this book than I have in any of the other M.H. books I've read. The writing was good including the world building, except for any reason/ explanation for their instant love (especially prior to the start of Aubrey's transformation). Plus during each step of the transformation process, my heart really hurt for Aubrey. I understand the necessity of taking the first step without full disclosure t

I had read "Victorious Star" some time ago, and liked it. However, after finishing "Lost Star," I wish I'd read it first. They're stand-alone books, but having more background about the characters would have helped me appreciate them more in "Victorius Star."

"Lost Star" is an absolute blast to read -- there's lots of action, suspense, and scorching hot sex.

When we first meet Aubrey, he's smart and brave but rather nerdy. He's victimized by a brutal crime syndicate and is later rescued by Seht, a

Recommended to Patrice by: No one--I have a knack for this stuff
I was looking forward to reading this b/c it is the prequel to Victorious Star Interstellar Service & Discipline 1. It was good. I did feel it was rushed a bit. Ms. Hawke has spoiled me b/c her books have heft and length. This was short and could have offered more focus on Aubrey Ravnos. For instance, I wanted to know more about his training, and it was skimmed over. Frankly, I'd love to see the return of Ravnos, Victoria and Seht.

This is my first Morgan Hawke book and I'd definitely recommend it. However, you should be ready for vigorous, explicit M/M sex, questionable consent, and knife play. Now that's out of the way, I can tell you that this is a character-driven short novel with two intense heroes.

Skheldi prince Seht saves the life of human Aubrey, who is a sort of programming genius kidnapped for his ability to hack starship computers. Seht and Aubrey are later separated and spend many years apart until an unexpect

Of the three books in this universe (Lost Star, Victorious Star, Fallen Star), in my opinion, Fallen Star has the best plot, characterisation, hotness, and overall best writing. On the strength of Fallen Star, which I read first, I was able to understand and enjoy Victorious Star and Lost Star (in that somewhat backwards order).

Skipped book 2, because I needed more of Ravnos (or should I say Aubrey?) and Seht. This is basically a pre-quel to book 1, "Victorius Star", covering Seht and Ravnos's backstory.

I'm absolutely enamored with Seht, who's a natural dominant, yet he lets Ravnos call the shots. They are such an intriguing pair. There was a comment in "Victorius Star" about them needing a female to balance them. I don't think it was a female, so much as a submissive. Seht gave up his dominance over Ravnos, because th

This is the story of how Ravnos and Seht of Victorious Star (Interstellar Service & Discipline, #1) by Morgan Hawke met.

Seht saves Audrey/Ravnos' life. They start a relationship but are separated for almost 10 years. During that time, Seht searches all over the universe for Ravnos. Meanwhile Ravnos, the ungrateful bastard that he is, does his best to avoid ever running into Seht. Admittedly during the separation, Ravnos was fighting the good fight and dealing with enemy…but to just abandon the person who saved your life, without even a backward glance….that's jus

Lost Star is a silky-smooth read with masterful characterization and kick-ass scifi story-telling! The author drops readers right into the main character Aubrey and takes them along for the whole ride, to experience every emotion and sensation with him. This is the prequel to Victorious Star and I highly recommend it for those who like hot M/M and beautifully executed sci-fi stories.

2014 - Been in a bit of a reread mood lately and I originally read this in 2011-12? after I had read Victorious Star Victorious Star (Interstellar Service & Discipline, #1) by Morgan Hawke was just starting to read m/m. I didn't like it that much.

I liked it much better this time around and this really should be read prior to VS because it gives the backstory of how Seht and Aubrey meet and their dominance games. In this story, Seht had the upper-hand and was able to dominate Aubrey and ultimately sets Aubrey on a new career path.

Having read both Victorious Star and Fallen Star I had to read Lost star. I loved reading Seht and Aubrey back story. How they met where their twisted version of love comes from. How Aubrey is now the master of Seht and not the other way around. This book answered all those questions that where asked when reading Victorious Star.

These are futuristic BDSM books to the max that in my opinion are a bit on the Sadistic side with all of the anal sex, rough play and just using sex as a weapon against

Prequel to Victorious Star. The story is shorter and less... rich? than the others in the series -- especially given how rushed Seht's and Aubrey's declarations of love seemed -- but it was still very enjoyable watching Aubrey Ravnos grow from a young man to an adult, especially as his relationship with Seht changed over time. It's dark, but not as much as I had feared it would be-- actually, in some places it was quite light and humorous. I think you would get more from this if you've read the ...more
