The Cat Star Chronicles, #10

Part of the charm of this erotic paranormal series is the unabashed carnality that is highlighted even as the poignant histories of the various characters are revealed. The joy of discovering that a horrific attempt at genocide has failed is tempered by the angst and challenges that the survivors have had to overcome in their lives and it is impressive that the author has been able to convey so many fascinating stories throughout the series. It was quite entertaining to watch Onca adjust to the idea that his allure is not quite as universal as he thought and to see his effectiveness at convincing others to join in the cause that he suddenly becomes embroiled in. The brief cameos of other favorites from this series whetted my appetite to look for some of the rest of the books and reminded me that I need to catch up with the adventures of other Zetithians. This can be read as a stand-alone book, but once you become intrigued by the delightful combination of sexiness, humor and emotionalism, you will undoubtedly be bestirred to explore more in this fascinating universe created by a wonderfully talented and prolific author and become tempted by her books in other genres as well.

“Rebel” by Cheryl Brooks is a delicious addition to the sensual ‘Cat Star Chronicles’ series that features the displaced Zetithians who are gradually finding one another. Onca has retired from his demanding position operating his popular and exclusive brothel, The Palace, but his search for a purpose in life didn’t exactly include rescuing the homeless of the City of Damenk. A chance encounter with Kimcasha Shrovenach (Kim), stuns Onca, and threatens to turn his hedonistic life into one that he risks for a ‘cause’, but will he be too noble to reap the benefits of his actions? Fortunately he has his assistant Roncas as well as his friends, Jack Tshevnoe and Cat, plus other unexpected allies to help him, but he will have to make his own decision about how much he is willing to sacrifice to accomplish his new goals.
