Series Spotlight on The Cat Star Chronicles!

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted…I didn’t realize that it hadn’t gone up.  Check back late tonight for today’s post.

 

slaveToday’s series is another one that I have blogged about often here on the blog…Cheryl Brooks’ The Cat Star Chronicles.

 

Books in The Cat Star Chronicles tell the stories the survivors of the planet Zetith, which was destroyed by an asteroid and its survivors mostly enslaved.  Each book focuses on a different male Zetithian, a species with cat-like features and…um…well, “special talents”…read the books for more details 😉   Keep in mind this is a highly sensual series!!!

 

I love this futuristic series because of its uniqueness.  Ms. Brooks has created an intriguing world with strong characters and plots that entertain.  You never know quite what to expect as you read.  At times erotic…at times emotional…always entertaining…this is a series unlike any I have read before.

 

warriorfinal-3I received the first book as part of my registration package at the RWA conference and I have to admit that I wasn’t sure I’d like it.  It was in first person and I don’t read a lot of first person books.  But I gave it a try and I was hooked.  The story drew me in and I felt as if the character was actually sitting there talking to me and telling me the story.  It is interesting getting to see this intriguing futuristic world through the main character’s eyes.  All of the books that I have read so far just seem to flow.

 

Here is the reading order (so far):

Slave

Warrior

Rogue

Outcast (releases June 2009)

 

I have reviewed Warrior on the blog already (read it here…not sure why I didn’t review Slave yet).  And today I am going to review Rogue. 

 

So here is my take on Rogue…

 

newroguecover-2Sensual, witty, and highly entertaining, Rogue is a wonderful installment in The Cat Star Chronicles.  


Told in first person from the point of view of Kyra, a music teacher hired to teach piano to the Princess of Darconia, Rogue is a fascinating story rich in descriptions and creativity.  Upon arrival Kyra becomes aware of just how different this planet his from her Earth home, especially when she makes the acquaintance of two of the Queen’s slaves, Trag and Tychar.  Kyra is just as taken with Tychar as he is with her, which does not escape the Queen’s notice so she assigns Tychar to see to Kyra’s every need.

 

As Kyra gets to know Tychar she cannot deny her attraction to the Tiger-like man and soon the two embark on a steamy relationship.  But Kyra cannot deny the doubts and questions she has about whether or not a relationship like theirs can thrive…especially when one of them is enslaved.  Things really become difficult when there is a coup and Tychar suddenly finds himself with a choice to make.

 

The story is set in a fascinating world with unique beings and customs.  I was enchanted by each new thing that I learned about this futuristic world and its inhabitants and  was quite taken by all the characters of this creative story.

 

I especially enjoyed the relationships and interactions between characters as they pretty much dominate the story.  Kyra and Tychar share an interesting attraction and relationship that is quite sensual as Tychar has not been with a female in over 20 years.  They have a tender bond.  Kyra also develops what I would call a deep friendship with Trag and really enjoyed their playful banter.  The two brothers have very different personalities and it affects their relationships with Kyra.  I couldn’t help but feel for these two men though who were enslaved when their planet was destroyed.  They have led a lonely life since then devoid of any sexual or emotional feelings.  Both long for love and companionship and…well…sex…you can’t help but hope they find it.

 

The author also does a great job of weaving sensuality into the story as well as emotion and really makes you care about the characters.  This story is a bit more erotic than previous ones in the series and even includes a ménage scene between Tychar, Kyra, and Trag.  It read a bit like an erotic memoir. (Thought I should warn those not accustomed to reading books with ménages).

 

In addition to the characters and the passion of the story, I also loved the wittiness of the tale.  I enjoy books with humor and this one definitely had me smiling.  So while some parts are a bit more serious than others, overall it is quite a lighthearted read.

 

So, if you are looking for a futuristic that is a bit different and creative, but is definitely entertaining then you might want to get this one…or the other books in the series.  It truly is unlike any series that I have had the pleasure of reading.

 

 

So there’s my rambling take on the book.  I look forward to reading the next one in the series, Outcast, as it appears to be just as enjoyable.
