Nova and Valen barely escaped Isroth with their lives and now they’ve crash-landed on an empty planet—no people, no tools to fix their ship. Nova has spent her life building and creating mechanics, but this is the most advanced vessel in the galaxy, and she can’t figure out what’s wrong with it.

But maybe the crash was a blessing in disguise. They’ve seen their entire live

Nero Nights is Episode 5 of this series, and it is great. Each episode is better than the last, and develops more than the previous episode.
I absolutely love following Nova and her journey. There are ups and downs, twists and turns, and the characters are amazing.

Nero Nights is a bit slower pace than the previous four books, but it's none-the-less, still an important part of the series.

Nova and Valen have found themselves on a planet that seems to be completely empty. They have no idea where they are and the ship they stole isn't working.

These two find themselves in a state of do we just stay here and avoid the chaos what was there lives or do they try and fix the ship and continue what the had started?

As I knew it would be because of the end of the previous book, this fifth installment wasn’t quite as action-packed as the previous ones were. However, that didn’t stop me from being glued to the pages to find out what was going to happen next. In this one, Nova and Valen explore their relationship to a much greater degree than they could previously. Not only did they found out stuff about each other, they healed each other in many ways. I just loved this book because it is a turning point in th ...more

What can I say about the Neron Rising series, apart from it just gets better with each episode. The whole story pulls you in from start to finish, from the worlds the author has created to the fascinating characters she is telling the stories of. I find myself not being able to put the stories down until I've read the whole thing and then desperately wanting more once it's over. Even though this story has a must slower pace than the previous episodes in the saga, it was nice to finally delve dee ...more

We are now into the 5th novella following Nova and Valen while they fight against evil. While this book was still fantastic, you can tell that it is definitely the arch between the last book and what is to come as it built up a lot more of the characters and the subplot that has been turning for a while now. I loved how everything is slowing weaving together but not in a predictable way and instead leaves you wondering what will happen next. We are able to look more into both Nova and Valen's mi ...more

So we're already on episode 5 of the Nero saga. I say episode because that's exactly what this series feels like, it's like waiting on another episode of one of your favourite show and you're not disappointed when it eventually lands because it's always worth the wait.

Things aren't looking good for Nova and Valen, a desperate escape from Cyrillius lands them halfway across the galaxy with nothing but a broken ship. While this episode is slower it's exactly what is needed to build the relationshi

Still good, just more of a filler episode. Excited to see what's next!

Nero Nights is the 5th installment in author Keary Taylor's Neron Rising series. This time, Valen and Nova are living out their predestined dream on a desolate and lonely planet. Living day by day and learning more about each other as they try to fix their broken space vessel proves to be quite challenging for the couple. As mundane as catching food and foraging for berries, their constant struggle between wanting to go back to their old lives to trying to fulfill their destinies together become ...more

Promising Towards the End

Nova and Valen finally find that time alone together, stranded on an unknown planet since they busted the revolutionary ship upon their escape from Cyrillius. Lucky they have an experienced mechanic and engineer in Nova. I'm remiss in that I've never commented on my other reviews how I enjoy her trade, especially since in a lot of books the women are characterized as helpless.

The beginning of this short story starts out slowly in my opinion and really doesn't progress th
JanaLee Longhurst
Episode five of The Neron Rising Saga successfully topped the first four episodes, which was difficult to do, because I loved the first four episodes, but top them it did, because Taylor took a step back from the action scenes to let us inside the heart of the story.

Shipwrecked, Nova and Valen find themselves physically removed from everything else in the universe, and that isolation gives them time to evaluate one another. In studying the planet they've crash landed upon, they see how the other

I really enjoyed ‘Nero Nights’. With the focus being mainly on Nova and Valen, we get the opportunity to get to know more about them and watch their relationship deepen into something more meaningful. This was great as their relationship has been a little sparse in previous episodes and we got to see them in full flow.

Episode Five was fast paced and I read it in one sitting. I liked the way that Keary moved the saga on but added in lots of detail from the past as subtle reminders to refresh us.

I just can't believe we are already this far into the series! I can't urge you hard enough to start reading Keary's work! Nero Nights, Episode 5, was a very important installment in the series. We get to know Nova and Valen a little better. They get to know each more intimately, while helping each other through emotions and barriers, they weren't able to get through on their own. Nova and Valen are destined to be together, and now we can all see that coming into fruition. Swoon! As others have c ...more

Nero Blood let my mouth open at its last chapters and I was anxiously waiting for Nero Nights for weeks, I did really have high expectations for this episode and THEY WERE EXCEEDED.

Nero Nights was like take a little rest of all the fight and war that is happening in the galaxy to Nova and Valen meet each other better and develop their relationship, and I just love that! And please let's talk about how lovely are Chapters 7 and 8, and how powerful is the last chapter! I just can't wait for Episod

After crashing onto an unknown planet, Valen and Nova have to figure out what their next move will be, while also figuring out who they are without any outside influence. Valen has many years of manipulation and lies that he has to come to terms with, and you will see that Nova has her own demons from her past, but together they can figure it out.
This episode is so good I blew threw it in a few hours and as always Keary left me wanting more! I loved seeing the character growth throughout the bo

A period of growth is required on any novel, and this episode is the period of growth that was needed. We learn alot about our heroes and about how Nova is coping with the changes going on in her world.
I highly, highly recommend this series to anyone who wants to sit back and let their imagination take over. This episode answers quite a few questions, and will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish

Valen and Nova have barely escaped and crashed landed on a planet. While they fixed there ship they finally get some time to get to know each other. Just like everyone else when they first start I can be awkward lol. They have always had great chemistry. But there is still work to be done and they made there choice in what to do. This episode was great to finally see just them. And as always can’t wait for the next.
Another fun installment in this saga! Nova and Valen actually like, talk to each other and bond for once in their life. They talk about their relationship and stuff. It's really just some relationship fluff between action scenes, but honestly, they kind of needed it given the fact that they haven't really spent time with each other outside of having visions of their future together.

Oh, and it ends with an exciting cliffhanger.

This novella is as good as the last 4. It had me hooked from start to finish. Due to me tending to spoil things I don’t really want to go into too much detail. But let me just tell you that it doesn’t disappoint. It’s a Must read. Keary does an amazing job. Thank you Keary for giving us another amazing book!

I think this might be my favorite episode but then again I've said that about all of these books so far. I am absolutely obsessed even more with the dynamic between Nova and Valen. I'm really happy about the little twist that was added to have Nova and Valen be reinvigorated to join the fight against Cyrillius and the Dominion.

Better and better

Valen and Nova escape to find themselves and free fall into the future taking this pocket of happiness to prepare themselves to start a revolution.... Nova’s the weapons maker a Nero and so much more... She’s his queen to her king. The series does not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this instalment. It was a slow paced chapter but it was needed. We got to know them both as a couple, for them to get an understanding with themselves. It was a great ending as we know that the next installment will be action packed and I am extremely excited :)

I am really enjoying nova and Valens journey. Can't wait to see how they conquer the dominion and cyrillisus. I'm glad Neron can heal almost everything. Gives them a chance to achieve the impossible
