I usually do not leave ratings-However, I had been looking for a quick read and something different. This book did not disappoint. I really liked the space adventure and the characters were very fun to read!!
I found this incredible author by accident. The Phoenix Adventures are an awesome group of stories but this is the one that starts it all. Treasure hunting in the galaxy now how fun does that sound. Imagine our world has finally destoyed itself, what happens to all of the treasures? The Mona Lisa, mask of King Tut, and other treasures our world has. Well they go out into space with the survivors of course. In this wonderful story you are search for one of the first settlements. There is adventure, love, romance, I could not put down the book. Had to read it one one sitting.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I'm a big fan of the sci-fi romance genre. This one had a good base that I don't usually find in sci-fi. Treasure hunters. (Most of the time, the emphasis is on aliens.) Here, we have Dathan (H) and Eos (h), who are working together to find the long lost Mona Lisa from ancient Earth. I think that their coming together, and their romantic path was believable and not rushed like a lot of authors tend to have in first series. The author did a good job developing their romance in between fighting off other treasure hunters and outwitting slavers. This book is action packed with a HEA. (Which is good for me because I despise cliff hangers). Both of the main characters were likable - not something found in a lot of romance books. Definitely a good find for the price!
