Finalist - National Indie Excellence Awards

Caeli Crys isn't living - she's surviving. On the run after the genocide of her empathic people, she witnesses a spaceship crash near her hidden camp. When she feels the injured pilot suffering from miles away, she can't help but risk discovery to save his life.

Commander Derek Markham awakens stranded on an uncharted planet. His co-pilot is dead, his ship is in ruins, and he's only alive because a beautiful young woman is healing him with her mind.

As Derek recovers, Caeli shares the horror of her past and her fear for the future. When Derek's command ship, Horizon, sends rescue, Derek convinces Caeli to leave with him. But his world is as treacherous as hers - full of spies, interplanetary terrorist plots, and political intrigue. Soon the Horizon team is racing to defend an outlying planet from a deadly enemy, and Caeli's unique skills may just give them the edge they need to save it.

Very good story!

This audiobook kept my interest and had a great plot. The narration was well performed and I was entertained by the swift plot movement. The heroine is a tragic character in a lot of ways. There is a definite villain and hero. The hero is a man who survived a crash onto her planet, where she healed him and took care of him. When he’s rescued by his people she goes back with him to their ship and becomes entangled in stopping a violent coup. I felt that the situation on her planet was left kind of up in the air, but perhaps there will be a sequel.

Great narration, excellent storyline

I had the pleasure of reading a copy of this book a few years ago. But this time around, it's the audiobook and it's a completely different experience. While, for me, the book starts a little slower, it does get right into the moment Caeli finds Derek. Immediately, I fell in love with their blooming friendship and the romance that comes later. The horrendous adventures this pair undertakes is so well described and everything plays out. The entire book comes to a very satisfying ending, leaving you with the feeling that it could end there, but has an opening for continuation. Luckily, I do own the second book in paperback and can continue because I want to.
The audio for this book was smooth and clear. DW Draffin had a great performance. He definitely gave Derek a voice. I do, kinda, wish there'd been a female narrator for Caeli's perspective, but DW still did amazing on his own. I'm really glad I had the opportunity to listen to this book.

A Great Story

This book had been one I wanted to read for a while but never got around to it. With the audio version it made it so much easier because I just listened to it while doing housework. The narrator was great. He has a calming soothing voice that made the story easy to listen too.

Horizon is a science fiction romance book. Science fiction isn't one of genres that I read often but I occasionally dip into that genre. It took me a little to get comfy with the story line. We get past and present. The past parts really helped me connect and understand the characters. Caeli is a very strong character. She has been living alone. When she see Derek's spaceship crash near her camp she goes to help. Caeli heals with her mind. Derek and Caeli are from different planets. Derek and Caeli have a connection. This story has a lot going on in it and I enjoyed reading it.
