A good add to the series! :)
Loved the heroine, Dakota! The hero, Dare was too dominant for me, but since Dakota enjoyed it who am I to complain?! LOL
The Phoenix brothers/cousins & Co. are always fun to read! Their adventures are like a pirate stories of old! :)

A welcome return of the Phoenix clan and I hadn't realised just how much I had missed them. The author has recently concentrated on putting out Earth bound books so it's was a delight to catch up with her space travelling, gun toting Phoenix family. Add in a treasure hunt, adventure and romance and all the ingredients are here for a fabulous journey beyond the stars!
Dare Phoenix, convoy leader, womaniser, domineering male and all round bad ass and yet there's a soft spot in him. Dare isn't the s

I have to admit to being disappointed in Through Uncharted Space. I loved the first Phoenix Adventures but the later ones have come across as same old, same old. I can predict how the characters act, their backgrounds and the action as the story progresses. Here we have the strong female who does not want help, the alpha hero who has a wounded background and I already knew how they react to each other. I even knew when and where the danger was going to happen. I would like more unusual twists in ...more

Originally published at Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly

I’ve enjoyed every single book in Hackett’s Phoenix Adventures series, from the very beginning At Star's End to this latest book in the series.

And one of these days I fully expect to discover that the contemporary treasure hunting family in her new Treasure Hunter Security series are the direct ancestors of the Phoenix brothers – both sets of them.

The Phoenix Adventures are set in a gritty far-future post-diaspora galaxy. The mother planet, Earth,

Rating: 3 stars - it was good

This one wasn’t very original but I still enjoyed the action and a good treasure hunt. The characters, Dare and Dakota, were both strong willed survivors who are learning to lean on someone else. After the way this one ended, I’ll be looking forward to the upcoming books!

I liked both Dakota and Dare and must say they fit together very well considering they are so much alike. Both are survivors of their past and have learned to only rely on t

I have two things to say here. Thing 1: DARE! Those Phoenix men are something else, aren't they? Thing 2: I can't believe I'm almost completely caught up on the series now. Do I smell a reread in the near future? MAYBE I DO.

But enough about me. Let's talk about Dare and Dakota. Mr. Likes to be in Control vs Miss Has a Few Trust Issues. THEY'RE FUN. Seriously. Dare runs a tight ship. Kinda literally. Dakota is a wildcat looking to find the thing that will make her life a little easier. Honestly,

4&1\2🌟 another strong Phoenix adventure!

Dare and Dakota’s story was awesome. All the action, mystery, and history treasure hunting you expect from an Anna Hackett novel with a sprinkle of love and passion to keep consenting more. Both our leads in this story have harsh pasts they would rather not relive or remember, but for better or worse these event have shaped who they are. Both Dare and Dakota have while on this massive hunt for Terran history discover the most valuable treasure anyone can h

Awesomeness of adventure and romance in one place.

I immediately got pulled into the story and immerse into trying to survive each and every thing that was thrown at the heroine and hero. This could be a Marvel story easily.

Love Anna Hacketts books inc most of this series. Bought one and had to keep buying. Can't wait for No. 11 to be released. If you love futuristic space adventure romance, I would recommend her books.

Ah ha! I thought I had read all the Phoenix Adventures books but then found this one hidden on my kindle (I really need to clean up my carousel). I really enjoyed this one, Dakota was a fun character to read. I'm now anxiously awaiting more books in this series. Love this author!

Meh. The book was good, but not great. Maybe the storyline is becoming a bit repetitive?

Most of the twists were very predictable and I wasn’t feeling the Dakota/Dare chemistry.

The world building was decent, but I felt that it still lacked the usual pazazz.

What a crazy ride

We get flying creatures. Slimy jerks. Water planets. Deep space and a lava planet. Loved it. Love Dare and Ms. Jones. She is full of fight. She turns Card's world upside down. It's fun to follow along. Loved it.

Good story

This was a good addition to the series but I felt like there wasn't enough of Dare's story. He just chased after the heroine throughout the book. I really wanted to get to know him more.

Through Uncharted Space – The Phoenix Adventures #10

Loved this book….And I don’t think I can gush enough to do this fab little book justice, so going to keep it short and sweet.

Dare and Dakota are great…I especially loved Dakota, we don’t get to see too many well written and likable female leads that are con-artists and risk takers and I just loved her!

If you love sci-fi romance with plenty of adventure then The Phoenix Adventures series is a must read.

Steamy Romance & Treasure Among the Stars

This titillating sci-fi tale takes the reader on a journey through uncharted space where life-threatening incidents occur and unique characters cause heaps of trouble. During this chaos, a steamy wild romance has a bunch of hurdles to conquer before the happy ending.

Dare Phoenix, Convoy Master of the Sky Nomad has a dominant demeanor and one look into his unique silver eyes lets you know he is in charge of everything. He doesn’t want a relationship but en

This can be enjoyed as a stand-alone, but it is enhanced by having read the previous stories before reading this one. Ms. Hackett packs so much excitement into her stories with action, surprises, mystery, space adventure, a treasure hunt and steamy romance. The main characters both have been shaped by the pasts that they have overcome. They get their HEA (happily ever after) and while there is an obvious hint to who will be paired up in a future book, there isn’t a cliff hanger. I really enjoyed ...more

Scam artist Dakota Jones is on the run from terrorist organization Golden Nova, which she infiltrated in order to steal a treasure map from. When she finds the treasure, she’ll sell it so she never has to be dependent on anyone again. However, the convoy she’s escaping on is run by Dare Phoenix, who figures out she’s not the meek worker she’s pretending to be. He offers his protection from the assassins after her if he can join her search for the treasure. She agrees reluctantly, because Dare Ph ...more

Dakota loved to take a few risks, otherwise life wouldn’t be worth living and she would end up with nothing, and that wasn’t her plan. Now after stealing a map to the priceless Atocha treasure, which is the key to her dream, she is hiding out amongst the Phoenix Deep Space Convoy. The convoy would take her out into uncharted space, far from Golden Nova’s spies, assassins and crazy followers; then she would be a lot closer to the treasure she was determined to find. But one glance at the Convoy’s ...more

The Phoenix Clan are back and doing what they do best – running rampant through space, searching for treasure and falling in love. This time it’s Dare Phoenix, deep-space convoy master, protector of all who fall under his eye, a man thoroughly in control of his own destiny. Until Dakota Jones lands in his life, turns it upside down and leaves him reeling.

This was so much fun. Dare is a complete alpha male, but Dakota is easily his match with her strongly independent streak, somewhat questionable

What love looks like.

The book begins with its usual document, in this case an advertisement for the Phoenix Brothers caravan service into uncharted space. At boarding, Dare Phoenix notices two pretty, flirtatious women and an oddly dressed third woman among the passengers. The third woman's hair is the color of dirty dishwater and she has on an ankle length, shapeless coat. Normally, Dane wouldn't have given her a second glance, but she's behaving oddly as well.

I have to say I really enjoyed Dare and Dakota's story. Dare comes across as a love and leave them type of guy until he meets Dakota who pushes all the right buttons for him. He has made up his mind she is the one for him and much to his brothers amazement he wants to protect and keep her. Dakota on the other hand is wary of any entanglements as she always ends up losing everything by trusting the wrong type of people. She is strong minded and life has not been kind to her growing up, but it has ...more

Dare Phoenix is a lover of women, in all shapes and sizes, but why is he so drawn to a furtive, dull, ill-dressed female with the brightest blue eyes???

Dakota Jones is on the run from the cult leader she cosied up to in order to steal a spectacular orb. She just needs to get to deep, uncharted space and then she can make a break for it and find her long searched for treasure. She has grown up in a constant state of wariness, awaiting the time when you try to take what is hers. She'll double cros

I do love those Phoenix brothers -- hot, full of action and ready to protect hose they love. In this story we get to know Dare better and learn more about how he ticks. And we meet Dakota Jones who has picked herself up from a hard gang beginning and made something of herself. She is looking for the ultimate treasure and books passage with the Phoenix brothers under false pretenses. Of course that leads to misunderstandings and danger and lots of hot, sweaty action.

I love the idea of a space caravan exploring the unknown univers and finding new and unexplored world.
In this book, we follow Dare, the leader and eldest of the trio, captain of the caravan. More alpha than him is hard to find. When he suspects one of his travellers of being more than what she appears, he doesn't stop until he gets all the answers, and the girl :)

Dakota and Dare`s story is hot treading a thin line threatening to tip to the darker side and I loved every minute of it, Dare is always in control and Dakota threatens that. Dakota has always had to look out for herself and fight for what little she has and her life. Dare is a threat to her because he makes her feel, she has a single minded mission find the treasure and live a better life whatever that may be if only she can keep Dare at arms length. Great characters and strange new planets in ...more
