Audiobook Review: Out of the Darkness (Dark Planet Warriors, #4). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Out of Darkness by Anna Carven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Kordolians are loose on the asteroid mining station Fortuna Tau, and first-rank mechanic Jia Morgan has become caught up in the thick of things. Under the careful watch of these steely-eyed silver warriors, Jia and her team have been tasked with repairing the hull of the Kordolians’ Alpha-Class battle cruiser, Silence

The problem is, their alien technology is far, far beyond anything she’s seen before, and whatever they try to weld to Silence’s black hull just won’t stick. 

When Jia goes in search of a tool that might actually penetrate the warship’s impossibly strong Callidum exterior, she find herself being aided by a most unlikely source. The hard-faced warrior who’s decided to accompany her walks on silent feet and carries a big, big gun. He’s equal parts scary and attractive, in an otherworldly sort of way. 

But although Jia finds this Kordolian fascinating, she’s not even going to try and get close to him, because, well, he’s a freaking Kordolian, and Kordolians aren’t exactly known throughout the Nine Galaxies for being nice and warm and fuzzy. 

Instead, she’s going to do her job and fix their warship, because that’s the only way these intimidating warriors are ever going to leave Fortuna Tau. Hopefully, they won’t break anything, or anyone, on the way out. 

Oh, and there’s also the small matter of these flesh-eating insect-aliens called Xargek. Apparently, they bite. 

Warning: This book is a science-fiction alien romance. It contains swearing, violence, sensual sex scenes and silver aliens with fangs. It’s definitely recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

The heroine: Jia Morgan – she lives and works on the asteroid mining station Fortuna Tau. She is a mechanic is assigned to repair damage to General Tarak’s main warship, Silence. Jia can’t believe she is finding herself attracted to a fierce Kordolian warrior.

The Hero: Kalan – a Kordolian Warrior, second in command to General Tarak. He is overseeing the repairs being done to Alpha-Class battle cruiser, Silence. While the repairs are being done, he is doing bodyguard duty and keeping an eye on Jia. Kalan finds he enjoys keeping his eye on Jia but is confused as to why he can’t keep his eyes off the tiny human.

The Story: If you have read any of the previous books, you know what happens on Fortuna Tau, and this book takes place within the same timeline as some of the prior books. We know that a few of the Xargek (huge bug-like creatures, similar to large cock-roaches) were on the station and they are not only deadly, but can multiply very quickly and infest a station or a planet in no time if they are not found and destroyed.

While fighting the Xargek, Kalan finds himself wanting to make sure Jia is safe and wanting to protect her despite the fact that she is braver than a lot of the humans on the station. The romance was great in this one, as they spent quite a bit of time getting to know each other. There were some steamy scenes and quite a bit of action and adventure. This was the best book in this series so far.
