Publisher's Summary

Abbey

Some scary-looking aliens have just boarded Fortuna Tau, our little asteroid mining station. Kordolians, by the looks of things. What the hell do they want with this floating rust bucket? What are they even doing here?

Come to think of it, I've never seen a Kordolian up close before. They're huge and intimidating, with strange silver skin and pointed ears. They have freaky nano-armor, and they're packing a serious arsenal. We humans stand no chance against them.

When I encounter their general, I find him insufferable. Arrogant. Domineering. He won't tell me anything. I guess that's what happens when your race is kicking ass across the Nine Galaxies. You get pigheaded.

So why do I keep running into him? Why does he keep looking at me like that? And what's with this weird feeling I get when he's around? I really hope these guys fix their ship and go away soon, because I get the feeling they could be major trouble.

Tarak

Sucked into a wormhole during a fierce skirmish with an enemy ship. Spat out near a human mining station in a remote corner of the Nine Galaxies. Stuck with weak humans who operate with inferior metals and technology.

This mission couldn't get any worse.

We need to fix our craft, kill the cursed Xargek, and get out of here before the wormhole collapses. I don't really care about these humans. Their existence makes no sense to me.

So why has this strange human female captured my attention? She's messy, awkward, and she babbles nonsense half the time.

These humans are crazy. I don't understand them at all, especially this female. Why do I keep coming back to her?

I need to leave this place before I go insane.

Contains mature themes.

Excellent Story

I've read all 8 books plus the short one (4.5) in one weekend because I couldn't get enough. Now I can hardly wait for the rest of the series to come out in audible. The way the author has created the setting for the book and the characters is amazing. If you like G.A Aiken and Laurann Dohner you won't be disappointed in this series.

So excited that there are already 8 books in the series

I found this gem just before Book 3 was released on Audible- very excited that there are 7 more books at least possible! Book 1 was a refreshing take on space romance, and the author does an amazing job at creating the “landscapes” with words. Narrators were different- but not distracting. I seriously loved the sections read by Todd McLaren.

More please, Audible Gods!!

Story was great, male narrator not so much

I really loved the story overall. The male narrator was slightly annoying in my opinion.

Read the entire series in a weekend

I read in the entire series in one weekend and I loved it! Loved the premise and loved the stories but I was not impressed with the narrators... They did and okay job but the pacing felt off to me. I hope they pick it up a better and continue the series!

Great story

Looking forward to more of the series. Hope a different female narrator is used next time though. I've heard Jillian Macie do worse, but her inflections are still irritating.

Anna and Tarek - a great love story

Any additional comments?

I was already a huge fan of the Dark Planet Warriors series. When I saw that the first book, Dark Planet Warriors, was finally available on audio I could believe my good fortune. I purchased it right away and couldn't be happier with the performances.

I didn't necessarily think of Anna's voice as sounding the way it does as narrated by Jillian Macle, but within a few pages I couldn't imagine anyone else as Anna. In fact Jillian reminds me of Ilya Kadushin, the narrator for the Twilight series. However, it took me a little longer to come to grips with Todd Mclaren for Tarek. While Todd's voice is powerful (just as I'd expect Tarek's to be) Todd sounds older than I perceived Tarek. While there is no indication of Tarek's age (at least I don't think there is) I always perceived him to be younger than middle aged. Maybe early to mid thirties or so. Tarek, as voiced by Todd Mclaren just sounds older. Still powerful and authoritative but much more mature than I imagined. However, I still enjoyed his performance.

Overall, I found listening to the book as performed by these professionals an entirely new and delightful experience. Both performances were good and brought out aspects of the characters and the story that I hadn't picked up on before. In the end I realize that I found new material to enjoy even though I had read the book at least two times already.

Awesome story

I had previously read this book and enjoyed it in audiobook form as well. The story of a regular girl working on a space station, cleaning the oxygen scrubbers, who meets the most powerful alien general when his ship arrives for repairs. Due to unexpected circumstances, she is taken by the general back to his planet. Not wanting to give spoilers, I will just saw that this was a good alien/human romance! Narration was well done also.

Loved it!!

I have read all the books in this series so it was a great treat to be able to listen to the first book again. Needless to say I was not disappointed. I really love the characters and how they connected and never doubted each other. The audio book, just like the book put a huge smile on my face.

***The Mighty Kordolians***

I alternated between reading and listening to this book and i am sorry to say but i have preferred reading due to the narrators, they are absolutely wrong for the characters. The female narrator well just didn't do it for me and i found myself bored out of my mind. no character what so ever she doest sound nothing like Abbey i imagined wud sound like. The male narrator sounds like always in a command mode even while making love. * sighs* but the story itself apart from lacking humour its great with dark decadence.
