This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Mystic is the second book in the Cat Star Legacy series, and this is my first time actually picking up this author. This is also one of the ARC's I neglected last year and completely forgot about but I am making an effort on working on that list because the guilt is the worst lol

This is definitely leaning more towards sci-fi erotica than romance, but theres actually a really interesting plot going on with the xeno-anthropologist heroine (whos from India, another pleasant surprise to find a PoC heroine in a sci-fi romance) and her quest to save primitive civilizations a shadowy group of bad guys want to wipe out so they can provide pristinely uninhabited worlds for colonization.

One note for the author, though; using the word exotic is considered fetishizing when used to

Yay. I am so excited. I used to read the books from the Cat Star Chronicles. In fact, I could not read them fast enough. The sex appeal that would ooze from the pages of the books were very appealing. So when this new series was introduced, I through now was a good time to pick up a book from Cheryl Brooks again. Which I have to say that I was not such a fan of the first book in this new series. Yet, I thought that I would try this book with the intention that I would not like it either. I was ...more

A psychic and elemental-gifted cat alien, a desperate human anthropologist, and a motley crew of aliens work to discover what they can about a deadly plague and the conspiracy behind it. Oh yeah, this was my kind of light sci-fi -(though whew, doggies, it was spicy) - romance. A new to me author gave me a a fun alien space adventure.

Mystic was the second entry in the Cat Star Legacy series which is a next generation to the original Cat Star Chronicles series. The children from the earlier books

Hmmm... Normally, I really don't care about "the children's" stories, i.e. those young-uns that were born in previous books, or appeared in previous books. I think that the author didn't really show much of these darlings helps. By the time they came along, the parents only made brief appearances, and the kids stayed out of sight.

So... We have Aiden, brother to Althea, and one of Leo and Tisana (sp?)'s brood. like Althea, he inherited Mordrial "gifts" that make him...uncomfortable...around a lot

No lie, I like these Zetithian men and the weirdness that comes along with them getting involved in things. Plus, you know, the way they're so totally focused on giving their special someone the time of their life. In bed. Because they're SUPER good there.

Anywho. Aidan and Sula. She's on the run, trying desperately to keep those she comes into contact with safe and he's...drifting. Not literally (most of the time), but he hasn't quite found where he fits into the world and his gift makes
I give this book a 3 Star Rating
I Received this book Via NetGalley for Honest Review:
Heat: 3ish out of 5
Drama: 3 - so so
Romance-y?: 3/5

This was a quick read for me, read it in one day. Im very familiar with this author, and was happy hear about this new series, and jumped at the chance to read this.
At first I was very confused as to what was going on, literally had no idea lol
Then at the 50%, I got a good idea at that point what was going on, it wouldve been a lot better to enjoy if there was a

Heat Factor: The hero is LITERALLY a sex cat

Overall: Hero is A+. Heroine and plot are meh.

I wholeheartedly endorse Cheryl Brooks dedication to the female gaze. She taps into a singular vision of female desire and then uses it as a checklist to create the ideal hero. (Look, obviously humans who desire male bodies actually want a wide

Cheryl Brooks is back with another addition to the Cat Star Legacy series. The mystical and magical world of the Zetithian people. This time the love story focuses on Althea's parents and how their love story started. I thought the family connection was a fascinating aspect to incorporate with the story. This way the readers can discover the similarities, like how both couples would go through hell to protect their true love, and
Sci-Fi Romantic Suspense with a touch of humor and hot sex. What's not to love in this story? Again we have a fun romp in the Cat Star world with a mysterious plague and an assassin out to kill the heroine.

"Sula"ksha Enduran is working on a PhD in Anthropology when she digs up evidence that empty planets are being settled that once had thriving populations. She suspects someone or something is killing off the natives with a deadly plague, that her lover died of, so their planets can be used to

In Cheryl Brooks's Mystic, the 2nd installment in the Cat Star Legacy paranormal romance, this series is so out-of-this-world, it would send you out-of-orbit and a mesmerizing thrill ride. For Sula, she's an Indian human from earth who mourned her lover's death on the planet Ecos. While she was looking for answers in a cave, she ended up caught in the snare of a condor's nest. That's when she met Aidan Banadånsk, a blonde alien male who came to her rescue in his starship. From there, he took her ...more

Mystic is the second title in the Cat Star Legacy series, which is a spin-off of the Cat Star Chronicles series.

While Mystic has an intriguing plot, bouts of chuckle-worthy moments and an interesting group of characters I think this is where the Cat Star Legacy and I part ways. Im not liking these characters enough to care what happens to them thats on me, not the author. Not every book is going to be a match with every reader. I know there is an audience that loves

I loved the Cat Star series and was glad to see that Cheryl has taken us back to that world. This time it is the children of the original character who take center stage. I like the first book in the series but think this one is much better. I liked the danger that the characters find themselves in. Their reaction sets the stage for some very dangerous actions. For a change Sulaksha Enduran does not react to Aidan Banadänsk when they first meet. This time the romance builds as the story ...more

Sula lost her beloved to a plague and is now looking to try and stop it spreading. But meeting the handsome and enigmatic Aidan may lead to her wounded heart healing a little.

Sula may be an anthropologist but she is also a little bit of an adventurer, even if she doesn't think so. Aidan is a rare type of shifter, one with wings and a legendary reputation among females! But he and his merry band of friends are Sula's last hope of curbing this disease.

Cruel experiments, unsympathetic corporations

The Cat Star Legacy carries on with the second generation from Cat Star Chronicles.

In this one Aidan has a vision of a beautiful brown haired woman falling from a cliff and goes in search of her. Rather than stopping her from plumiting, he has to rescue her from a nest of condor like birds and finds she's running from witnessing a genocide. Since his father's home planet was destroyed by a jealous, crazy, rich man Aidan understands the importance of Sula's mission to find out who's behind what

Sula Enduran, an anthropology graduate student, comes to the planet Rylos after having lost her colleague and lover, Raj, to a virulent plaque while on assignment on another planet. It seems they were sent on a deadly mission with a purpose to unknowingly wipe out the indigenous population. Aidan Banadansk is a Zetithian mystic who has several talents including seeing the future, controlling the wind, and a legendary sexual prowess for which his nearly extinct species is universally known.

Oh man. Ooooooh man.

You know. I don't think I can give this one a rating. Did this book include some of the wildest (take the how you will), most bizarre, and slightly gross descriptions of sexual acts and male genitalia I've ever read in a romance book? Yes. Did it bring me to hysterics because of it a few times? Also yes. So in this time of darkness, I appreciate that I had a few good laughs with this one.

What a Wonderful Treat!

Love, love, these characters and their stories! Sexy! Fun! Danger and suspense! Action! Yes, yes, yes! Sula and Aidan are perfect partners. Smart, sexy, brave and kind, their interactions make me smile. The friends and relatives who make up their "gang" are diverse, but work well as a team. There are so many characters that I want to read more about. What an entertaining series! I highly recommend it.

Very good. This is about Sulaksha Enduran and she is investigating a mysterious plague but when the situation turns bad she is saved by Aidan Banadansk. He joins her quest but it also puts them in the crosshairs of a deadly conspiracy. Kept my interest right from the first. There is lots of action and passion too. Recommend.

Brooks keeps the reader engaged and fired up, in another fantastic galaxy hopping tale of the Zetithians. The second generation of Cats are ready to conquer the cosmos and spread Love 💘, looking for their perfect life match. Enjoyable, sexy hot stuff as only Cheryl Brooks can do with wit, sassy dialogues and fun.

I enjoyed Sula and Aidan's book. The exciting storyline keeps you entertained with a well crafted blend of humor, heat, suspense, drama, emotions, action, intrigue, adventure and romance. The chemistry between these two is so steamy and I loved how their relationship evolved over time. A very good read. This is my forthright, voluntary review.

A fun adventure. Secrets and lies abound. Fun characters.
This was an interesting take on the shifter, space romance. Sula is a anthropologist looking to stop a deadly disease from breaking out and Aidan is an alien shifter determined to save her from a fall he saw in a vision. Both are destined to find one another. I liked both characters well enough I just found the language to be too modern for the alien genre it represents. I wasn't blown away by the story but it was a decent read.

Thank you Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest

I loved the cat star chronicles which featured the parents, Now we are learning about the children and what have become of them in the cat star legacy series. This is the second book which is about Aidan and Sula.

At first it took me a minute to get into the story, but after a few chapters I was reading until I finished it in one sitting. You kinda just get thrown into the story, the characters are not really introduced at first. As you read , you meet some new characters and hear about some

I loved this book. There was humor lots of heat, suspense, and action. It made it a quick read because you really wanted the characters to make it both romantically and physically. I have not read the other books but its fine as a standalone.
