Audiobook Review: Dark Planet Warriors (Dark Planet Warriors, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dark Planet Warriors by Anna Carven

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

The heroine: Abbey – she works as a scientist in the vegetation dome on an asteroid mining station called Fortuna Tau. She grows most of the food eaten on the station. She hates it, but in the 24th century, jobs are scarce on earth and in order to get one, people have to work off world for years before they are able to work on earth.

The Hero: Tarak – a Kordolian General who comes to the mining station after his ship is damaged in a firefight with the Xargek. The Kordolian are feared throughout the universe as they are known to travel the nine galaxies enforcing their rule. Though they have ignored Earth till now.

The Story: While on Fortuna Tau for repairs to his ship Tarak is suffering from a severe headache and finds from his medical officer that he needs to mate. Though inter species mating is not allowed. His headache seems to abate when he is talking to Abbey and when she is injured when fleeing one of the Xargek which infiltrated the station, he decides to take her with him.

Abbey finds herself the only human in an alien station above a planet where humans are seen as little more than slaves and when the leaders of the dying populace find that humans have similar DNA, they see her as a perfect guinea pig. However, the Tarak is the leader of the Kordolian forces and is not afraid to go after what he wants.

The book was told in dual POV and by two narrators, Todd McClaren and Jillian Macie. Both narrators did a great job and I enjoyed listening to this one. It was quite steamy and had a good story, though the romance could have been a bit better. I wanted Abbey and Tarak to get to know each other better.
