Review: Hero

Hero (Cat Star Chronicles - Book 6) by Cheryl Brooks

(For review from Sourcebooks)



Micyala is the last Zetithian female left in the universe. She doesn't know what's normal for her species, but she knows when she sees Trag that all she wants to do is bite him...


Trag has sworn he'll never marry unless he can find a Zetithian female. But now that he's finally found Micayla, she may be more of a challenge than even he's able to take on...


The sixth addition to the Cat Star Chronicles series, Hero by Cheryl Brooks is full of surprises. Trag has had feelings for his brother Tychar's mate, Kyra for a long time. No one seems to compare to her in his mind, so he has resigned himself to living alone, and unmarried, unless he can find a Zetithian female. Until he meets, Micayla the last Zetithian female. Raised on Earth and unaware of her heritage, Micayla doesn't understand her reaction to Trag and has a hard time knowing whether to kiss him or bite. I guess that's to be expected when the men on your planet are so sexy that somebody has to go and blow it up!

Brooks does a wonderful job developing the characters in this book. We know quite a bit about the Zetithian's from the other five books in the series, but this one seems to delve more into the individual characters and how being Zetithian affects their every day lives. Micayla for instance has had practically no sex drive up to this point because there are very few Zetithian males to choose from and she hasn't encountered any, but when she meets Trag it's a whole different ball game. She is a very challenging character, because she represents the last of the Zetithian females and we haven't really heard a lot about them, just minor references. Brooks pulls her character off with a flourish. She makes her real and just what you'd expect aloof, guarded and sexy.

One of the things I really liked about this novel was the world that Cheryl Brooks has created. Trag is an intergalactic space pilot working for an arms dealer and Micayla is a communications officer in the outer realms. This book was easy to follow and even if you'd never read any of the other books in the series, it was not hard to get into or to figure out where it was going. It's a very sexy book, with very alluring characters that seem to radiate hot and steamy, LOL.

Hero as well as the other five books in The Cat Star Chronicles series are available NOW from your favorite bookseller.
