Midnight’s Ghost by Sara Brookes is a Science Fiction Romance. Ms. Brookes has an excellent flair for description and I could really visualize the space ship, Eidolon, as well as Taran, Wallace and Kerr.
Taran was a wonderful heroine, you could empathize with her in the loss of her father. Then when her former lover, Wallace, walked back into her life after 5 years and ask her to help him deliver Kerr, the teenager, to his home planet you could side with Taran in her desire to say no. But Taran relents and during the course of the journey you realize that the love that Wallace felt for Taran was deep and lasting. Wallace tried to be the “macho” man you come to expect from romance novels but Ms. Brookes gave him a softer side that slipped out.
I would like to read about Kerr's story as well as learning more about the world in which Midnight's Ghost is set.
Book Blurb for Midnight's Ghost
The timeline is excruciating. Taran has three days to get her former lover—whom she's barely speaking to—and the mysterious teenager she knows nothing about from one planet to another. Given the fact her ship, Eidolon, is the fastest in the star runner fleet, Taran knows she can make the run in the time Wallace has allotted. As the best—and only—female pilot, she's got something to prove. As if things weren't complicated enough, Wallace, and the teenager he has in tow, are both escapees from the harshest prison facility in seven galaxies. Not only is Taran putting her career on the line, she's got the Intergalactic Patrol hot on her heels. It isn't long before unresolved feelings and tempers flare to life again and Taran is left second-guessing her decision of putting everything she stands for on the line. Her determination may just cost her everything.
