Does this series title look similar to anyone else?

I might have given this 2 stars, but unfortunately the similarities to another series as far as the name, covers and the aliens home planet goes ruined it’s chance. Science fiction can be literally anything you want, so there’s no excuse why a new series should be so similar to previously released books. These covers, planet and the series name is TOO close to Anna Carven’s Dark Planet Warriors and Dark Star Mercenaries series. However, the wri

Very enjoyable and entertaining fast-paced story. Plenty of intrigue, action, and of course steamy romance to keep you hook from beginning to end. There also twist and turns that you don't see coming. Wasn't sure what to make of Prince Stravon, he came off as very arrogant and entitled. I'm just glad that he was able to change my mind about him. Overall a good read and a great start for a new series. Looking forward to seeing what else is in store for this series.

Laina is on a space pleasure cruise with her friend, Jo, who is studiously studying her phone rather than the spectacular view of space! The guide points out a pale blue glow around the edges of the planet Quolvio, more commonly known as the Dark Star. Their Empire stretches into all corners of the galaxy, and the cluster of galaxies surrounding it, and Earth is part of their rule. The rumor is that the Emperor is an arrogant tyrant and the 5 Princes are barbaric. Fortunately Earth has not attra ...more

I always enjoy reading the starts of new series. It let's me know if I want to read the rest or pass. I did enjoy this story on how people deal with being threatened and when you can recreate yourself to what you would like to be instead of how you were before amnesia.

This series is in a future world where there is space travel and Earthlings know there are other beings out there. One such beings is the Quolvian, also knows as the Dark Star. The king there is known to be a tyrant. He controls mo

Laina and her friend Jo go on a pleasure cruise. At the same time the Emperor Eox calls his 5 sons and tells them that they have to mate with human women. Boy did that go over well. Humans are weak, less intelligent and downright not worthy to mate with royal princesses. They are ordered to seek their mates on the pleasure cruise. This story revolves around Prince Stravon of Quolvio and his mate to be Laina. They end up on a planet not of their choosing and the adventure begins. There are savage ...more

Captive mate...

With this story, Ms. Selborne introduces the five princes of Quolvio. Five princes that have been "ordered" by their father, the Emperor, to capture and mate a woman from Earth. The princes think Earthlings are beneath them but do as their father decrees. Of course there are the bad guys who want to take the Quolvio rulers down. See where this is going? Stravon isn't very likable in the beginning( none of the princes are) but he grows on you. Laina has a lot to do with that. Looki

hunger games in space

If you like star wars and the hunger games you will love this book . A very fast paced and unexpected story or the youngest of 5 spoilt princes and the humans they kidnap as they crash land on a hostile planet and try to find a way home as they also try to stay alive in very difficult circumstances . Not your average romance nor alien abduction type of story Brilliantly written and very addictive including the cutest robot ever … Now when is the next boo

This is book 1 in a new series by an author I have never read before. The writing is good, and she appears to know where she is going with the plot and the characters. The characters weren’t very likable, they may grow on me as the series progresses but, in this book, I just wasn’t feeling them. It’s sci-fi so the story-line isn’t going to be believable and that’s ok. I struggled at times with the book, due to the characters and their dialogue. The plot is a good one just thrown by the main two ...more

This story starts off with a cruise ship that’s on its way back to earth but it doesn’t get there because it’s taken over by 5 alien princes who kidnap 5 human women and this is Prince Stravon’s and Laina’s story. Stravon is pretty disgusted with Laina he believes that his species is superior to all others so he looks down on everyone but his own species, I’m glad that Stravon changed his attitude in the end because I didn’t like him until he did. Overall this is a great story and I can’t wait t ...more

I either like or dislike this author.
Could have been good if not for a total cast of unlikeable characters.
The attitude of the Ruler and his five sons was just off.
Yes I expect these princes will FALL IN LOVE with their compatible mates but it took to long for any feelings to start surfacing.
Too much whining, weakness and switching of mindset in the heroine.
Maybe I am tired of SFR and need to change genre for a while. Nope, I have a couple of authors whose new releases I devour. Just this book.

I liked this book and look forward to more from this series. Filled with excitement, drama, tension, intrigue, action, suspense and danger, there is plenty to capture and hold your attention. Laina and Stravon were interesting characters but neither one wowed me with their likability. I will say that I wish that I had felt more of an actual emotional connection or bonding pull between these two fated mates. Of my own accord I am posting a truthful review.

After reading the first book in the Dark Star Princes series I know I want to read the rest of the books so I will be watching for them to be out. Once I started this book I was not putting it down. Prince Stravon and human Laina, plus the Droid Pookla Bear's story has suspense, drama, danger, twists, turns, evil dragons, villains, romance. I enjoyed reading how Pookla Bear got to save the day.

An alien abduction romance with plenty of action and adventure. From the start you will realize the five princes and the king aren’t the best type of people. But soon an unknown danger will place one prince and the human woman he abducted in a very dangerous situation. The characters definitely change throughout the book. Laina definitely has some issues but later shows her inner warrior. Stravon grows the most by the end. But the danger isn’t over as the enemy is still out there.

Not Your typical Alien Bride Story!!

Yes, Stravon and his four brothers have been ordered to take brides from Earth. But there is a greater outside danger which these two must battle to survive. An exciting start to this series, I look forward to reading about each brother.

Alien abduction
This author has a market on upping the anti when it comes to alien abduction. I loved the excitement and adventure she was able to provide as these two got in touch with themselves and each other. Together they grew strong and found their own HEA. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Great start to a new series. Laina is out with her friend enjoying a space cruise when five brutal princes invade the ship and steal away five women from Earth. Stravon’s ship ends up crash landing, can he keep his new mate safe? Fast-paced read with lots of twists and turns. An intriguing sci-fi read. Looking forward to more in the series.

Stravon & Laina

Interesting story...Prince Stravon kidnaps his chosen breeder but finds Laina is much more than what he expected. Crash landed onto a planet with creatures & aliens attempting to kill them, both find the strength & determination to survive. Love...bravery...leads to a cliffhanger...

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I feel bad for the main characters. They went through a lot. I hate clifhangers but this one was good. I can't wait for to the next book. I think this book should be beginning of a larger book with a follow on story. It was too short.
