The human composed a song in his heart, a pull he couldn’t ignore, a draw that demanded further exploration—

When he answered a distress call, L’Den hadn’t expected to find one of the Invaders waiting for him. The tug he feels on his soul is even more surprising, drawing him closer to the woman, in spite of her humanity. Both his second-in-command and A'rch, his companion m

MY RATING GUIDE: 1= dnf/What was that?; 2= Nope, not for me; 3= This was okay/cute; 3.5= I ENJOYED IT; 4= I liked it a lot; 5= I Loved it, it was great! (I rarely give 5 Stars).

3.5 Stars (nearly 4) for INTERRUPTING STARLIGHT a novella in the Pets in Space, #4 anthology by Kyndra Hatch. I enjoyed INTERRUPTING STARLIGHT. It is difficult to fit a full story with 3 dimensional characters into a short novella yet I felt this was accomplished.

Stranded on a desolate planet for 2 years after the crash of her survey ship, lone survivor Tessa has all but given up hope of rescue by the Human Colony Alliance when she’s surprised by the arrival of a Korthan ship responding to a distress signal.

L’Den, Cyborg Korthan is even more surprised by his immediate attraction to Tessa. His companion a Moga/Hellhound, A’rch wants the hated human killed because she is the enemy, and humans, Korthans are at war.

This was an excellent story, though short.

It was clearly the cover that made me want to know more but I confess that I expected a longer story.

The story takes place in another galaxy and in a distant future from us during a war between humans and aliens.

The universe created is coherent and the vessel very interesting. My scientific side is intrigued.

The characters are well worked and the beings who accompany them are amusing by their behavior.

I had a great time with this book and I'm already wondering what to expect next.

I like very much science fiction romance stories, especially those having to do with aliens and humans, so I bought this story as soon as I read the plot synopsis. It is good, but there are lots of grammar mistakes, which detract from the story itself. English is my second language, yet it wasn´t difficult to detect those mistakes, and I felt distracted trying to correct them. This work needs a good editing.

Interrupting Starlight

This is one amazing story of war and how no matter what race you are there is two sides to everything. Finding out that your other half is definitely not human can be downright scary but they say opposites attract. Beautiful storytelling that will take you out of this world!!!

The first book in the Before The Fall series a well written story that kept me turning pages. Korthan L’Den and human Tessa's story there is suspense, drama, danger, twists, turns, villains, and romance. I want to read the next book.

Short, Sweet, What a Treat!

This story hits on a lot of the story and character types I enjoy. Sci-fi? Check. Romance? Check. Cute Critter Shenanigans? Also Check. Characters I can grow into, love, hate? Check, check AND check. Kyndra Hatch could lay down a full series in this universe and I would pick it up straight away. Drew me in and kept me there. Had fun with it!

Beauty in every word

I’ve read these books all the wrong way around yet it’s been easy to follow and most satisfying for the heart and the imagination. Kyndra Hatch is definitely an artist who draws beauty with words!

Interesting story, well written but is very short

It ends nicely but is anti climatic and doesn’t give much of a ending for the pairing given the synopsis of the next book

Really 2.5 stars rounded up lol

I don't think this book did a particularly good job with the fated mates stuff. Also I'm sorry but if I'm lost in space for 2 years with zero contact, I'm think I'm assuming my fiancé has moved on....

felt wrapped up in a hurry as well, but overall fine.
This is a super sci-fi romance! I loved it! It is entertaining and interesting, sweet and exciting.. Love the characters!
