I loved this book. There was humor lots of heat, suspense, and action. It made it a quick read because you really wanted the characters to make it both romantically and physically. I have not read the other books but its fine as a standalone.

4 Stars Review by Sasha Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Cheryl Brooks is back with another addition to the Cat Star Legacy series. The mystical and magical world of the Zetithian people. This time the love story focuses on Althea's parents and how their love story started. I thought the family connection was a fascinating aspect to incorporate with the story. This way the readers can discover the similarities, like how both couples would go through hell to protect their true love, and the differences that both couples went through. Additionally, it’s nice to understand the actions behind the characters choices because their parents were major parts of their lives and upbringing. Sula is stuck in a pit of sadness after the death of her true love. When a plague hit her people and he suddenly got infected, Sula committed herself to do everything she could to find a cure and stop it from spreading further across their world and destroying other planets. While she may have dedicated her life to science and academia, Sula isn’t one to shy away from an adventure. When she met Aiden she didn’t know the secrets that he hid and the way he would cause her world to change. Aiden isn’t a typical Zeithian man. Unlike many of his people, Aiden has the ability to glimpse into the future. This ability might be a gift but it has also brought him grief and confusion. His visions are filled with the plight of his people. Abandoned by his parents, he distanced himself from others in an attempt to keep himself protected. Aiden didn’t expect to connect with Sula. They both realize that they not only want each other in their lives but need each other. Mystic has the meticulously written sex scenes that Brooks has come to be known for (and trust me they do not disappoint). The espionage aspect of the novel was the highlight for me. There’s nothing sexier than a couple of beautiful people who are in love with each other sneaking around in dark, hidden places in order to save the world. While this is the second novel in the series, a new reader is easily able to pick it up and not be confused about the characters or storyline.

Sci-Fi Romantic Suspense with a touch of humor and hot sex. What's not to love in this story? Again we have a fun romp in the Cat Star world with a mysterious plague and an assassin out to kill the heroine. "Sula"ksha Enduran is working on a PhD in Anthropology when she digs up evidence that empty planets are being settled that once had thriving populations. She suspects someone or something is killing off the natives with a deadly plague, that her lover died of, so their planets can be used to settle new inhabitants. She is rescued by Aidan Banadansk, a Zethithian who has Terran and Mordrial-witch parentage. He can control the wind, enabling him to fly by attaching wings, and see into the future-fortune telling. His parents are Leo & Tisana, from #2 Warrior of Cat Star Series, and littermate to Althea in the previous book Maverick. I adore series like this when you get to have other characters come into the story and interact. We get to see more of Curly, Jack & Cat's son, Giklor the healer, Val the avian clone, Onca & Kim from Cat Star #10 Rebel, the ones who run the orphanage. Will they get the evidence they need to stop the plagues and have those responsible pay? You'll have to read to find out! Thank you Cheryl and Sourcebooks for the opportunity to review this story for you.

Sula Enduran, an anthropology graduate student, comes to the planet Rylos after having lost her colleague and lover, Raj, to a virulent plaque while on assignment on another planet. It seems they were sent on a deadly mission with a purpose to unknowingly wipe out the indigenous population. Aidan Banadansk is a Zetithian mystic who has several talents including seeing the future, controlling the wind, and a legendary sexual prowess for which his nearly extinct species is universally known. Aidan has a vision of Sula so is able to save her life after an injury on her self-styled mission to discover what might have happened on the other planet and why. Aidan never expected to fall for this intelligent, resolute Terran woman, but he is determined not only to win Sula for his mate, but help uncover the deadly conspiracy by powers that seek to control the universe purely for economic gain. He is a type of cat hybrid of more than one race while Sula’s family is from the Terran(Earth) subcontinent of India. They have several cohorts who are a variety of fascinating and varied races that work well as a team to expose the truth. Each alien race has a myriad of interesting traits and abilities that add color and often humor to the story. MYSTIC is book two of the Cat Star Legacy series which is a spinoff of the Cat Star Chronicles. As a sci-fi space romance, this tale is a good mix of action and adventure with a strong underpinning of the main couples intimate relationship. I enjoyed Sula and Aidan’s story and was very drawn into the world Ms. Brooks has created. I look forward to the next in the series. This book can be read as a standalone; however, more is to be gained by starting with the first in the series, MAVERICK as well as the original series
