I love the Rystani Series. We have great world building, compelling characters, strong women, heroes of all types, humor, and action adventure. This addition to the series features the baby, we saw born in the first book all grown up, hunky, and super powered.  Our heroine is a self determined pilot and a Captain in every sense.  The plot is a engaging space action adventure and the love story is well written.  This series has been on my keeper shelf for years. If you like like Science Fiction Romance, it is likely to make yours as well.  I was given this book for my honest review.  So, there you have it!

Kirek had once been considered the most powerful psi in the Federation. But eight years ago, while astral projecting, Kirek had been caught in a wormhole explosion. His mind had been blasted out to the far end of the wormhole, all the way into the Zin Galaxy. The Zin are a combination of machines and live beings. They are now threatening everything in the Federation. All the Federation planets' cores will overheat and melt the each planet's crust, killing all. It took Kirek seven years to return and another year to be reintegrated into his mind with all the body machines that had kept him alive. With his return, Kirek brought back a way to stop the Zin however, only he and a single small ship would be able to accomplish this heavy task. The main problem is that during the astral projection the Zin tagged his psi and labeled him to be a threat. They would recognize Kirek's psi when he got close. Kirek needed to somehow block his psi from the Zin and no one knows how to do this. Add to this that his psi had been damaged. Kirek can no longer astral project. His power is now limited. ...................... Captain Angel Taylor considers her ship, 'The Raven', to be home. The ship is in dire need of repairs and overdo on many checks. Therefore, the salvage she was after was considered very important. Yet she did not expect to find a Rystan warrior hiding aboard the salvage. Even worse, before they are even introduced the Zin attack, insisting she turn over the Rystan named Kirek. Kirek makes Angel a deal she helps him and he takes her to the biggest salvage haul in Federation history. ...................... ***** This is the fourth book in Susan Kearney's series. Each novel is a stand-alone story. You do not have to read any of the previous ones to fully understand all that is happening. You will never feel left adrift. If you HAVE read the previous three stories, you will get a small glimpse into how the previous novels' characters are doing. Also, there is a teenage girl in the middle of this novel that has dreams of farming. Author Susan Kearney only gives a couple pages on this minor character however, it left me hoping to see more of her in the future. I have high hopes. If you enjoy romantic space journeys, you will adore this novel. My husband has been reading them as well, then loaning the novels to his other male co-workers. So I can honestly tell you that males and females, both, would love this universal series. Highly recommended! *****

I liked this series, I really liked Kahn and Tessa the best, I felt they had more to over come. Xander and Alara were another favorite. I really liked the idea that the men took the pain from child birth. I am glad that you kept it to 4 books; some authors go to far.

A terrific ending to a fantastic series!!  Loved watching Kirek turn into a hero over 4 books.  But this book can also stand alone.

Overall I enjoyed the book. I like the characters and the novelty of the world she creates. I read this as a follow up to the book before it but have not read anything earlier in the series. I liked the beginning of The Quest better as the characters were introduced and there was more sizzle. Somehow I expected the male lead to remain strong and indomitable, but the female lead started to eclipse him in that department as she developed her own powers. I guess I felt he had a lot more potential but the author cut him off at the knees a little by maintaining his injured psi status in order to let the female lead help him in his quest. Good as far as a story line goes, and even expected, but I still wanted to see more of his amazing abilities. Or even more of both of their amazing abilities. Basically, he started out a very strong, powerful male (even injured) but that's not what we got to see as the book progressed. The "coolness" factor was subdued by the vulnerability of the two characters as they found they needed each other, etc. etc. So, aside from the above mentioned personal preferences, it was a good read and overall I enjoyed it. A little predictable in the end though. It dragged a little along the way so by the time the big confrontation occurred it seemed there was only enough time to wrap up hastily. Of course, the battle wasn't the point of the book. The love story was. So, read it for the love story, not the background plot.

Captain Angel Taylor knows that her beloved ship The Raven desperately needs preventative maintenance and some major repair so this salvage is critical to her. However, as she brings the booty on board, the Zin demand she hand over the living part of her loot. Apparently Federation Rystani Psi Warrior Kirek hides among her catch from the Zin. Kirek offers Angel a deal she cannot refuse. If she helps him escape, he will lead her to the largest salvage ever, a place where his mind landed when he was caught in an explosion while on the astral plane eight years ago he has become whole only over the past year. --- The Zin threaten to destroy the Federation by overheating the core of each planet. Kirek knows how to prevent pandemic disaster, but the Zin know his psi print and want him dead. He believes she is his and the Federation¿s enabling angel that will help him defeat the enemy. --- The latest science fiction romance in the Kearney universe is a terrific tale that grips the audience from the opening line when Raven First Officer Petroy informs the Captain ¿we aren¿t alone¿ and never slows down until the final alteration with the Zin. The action-packed story line is fun follow as the heroes land in one hot spot after another even as love blossoms between the salvager and the psi. Sub-genre fans will want to read this tale and obtain the previous novels (see THE CHALLENGE, THE DARE, and THE ULTIMATUM) as each is an outstanding stand alone (with minor ties) outer space thriller. --- Harriet Klausner
