    I read Catalyst 13 months after book one, and it was too long. In Destroyer, Anna Carven creates a new, complex world with multiple alien races interacting on one horrific, massive, sentient space ship. It was convoluted at the time to read. More than a year later, I had forgotten impo...

    Esania is making the best of situations she can on Khira. Previously responsible for the Earther females, Esania continues to care for her charges as best she can though the Vradhu are making it difficult. Imril, Lightbringer twin, Overlord of Khira, awakens weak and confused to fi...

    Although there were a handful of grammatical errors, this was a fantastic read for a sci fi romance. I can?t wait for Mael and Sara?s story. ...

    Sorry, but I need to deduct one star for sloppy editing. A lot is being repeated, some grammatical errors and there is also a few sentences which seemed to be in the wrong place. One or two more beta readers could have done the trick on this one. On we go to the review: The main co...

    A real drag compared to her other series I really hate to give a bad review for this author since she wrote one of my favorite series (Dark Planet Warriors, which is amazing!), but gah this book was a drag. The potential was there and the characters were better than the first book ...

    After the events in book 1, Esania and her, err, handmaidens (I guess? People? The one's she's looking after?) are stranded on Khira with the rest of the mercenaries and a group of Vradhu after the crazed living ship they were on...MAN, book one was a wild ride, wasn't it? Totally wild...

    DNF I read this thru KU. I bailed at 18%. I should've read the summary before starting this but enjoyed the 1st book so much that I jumped straight into this and immediately regretted it. I ABHOR romance books about slavery and/or abuse. The H in this is a slaver who thinks himself ...

    Couldn't put down! I don't know where to start but to say this is one of my favorite books by Anna. I couldn't put it down. I've been waiting on her next release and I wasn't disappointed. Must read! ...

    Very, very redundant. The same things over and over. This book could have been at least 25% shorter. I liked the story, though. I will readp the next one. ...

    Ok like just barely a romance, but still a pretty interesting sci fi fantasy situation, I have to say. This didn't suck! ...

    Look, I love Anna Carven. I adore her Dark Planet Warriors series and still re-read it. It's right up there in my favourite series of all time. I don't follow Authors on FB but I follow her, that says a lot. This new series started off well. I liked 'Destroyer' so you can imagine I ...

    Catalyst was one of those stories which don't allow you to breathe, eat or drink while reading it. I was so intrigued by Imril and his past (and future), I was devouring every word Anna Carven had written like it was my last meal on Earth. I can't wait to see what's in store for Mael....

    Imril and Esania If you want an offworld adventure, a complete immersion into another reality, read this series. This is a smart, all encompassing and unique world build. The intricacies are such that your intellect is always engaged. Crash landing on the planet Khira, it is poisono...

    I'm sorry but no Not my cup of tea, reading this was too confusing, probably because I could not remember the first book story line ,its been so long, just finish this book and I'm still confused, sucking energy of your mate to survive is weird but some what interesting not to menti...

    My reaction: not as good as Destroyer, the first book. While I enjoyed the story I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the internal commentary, and a repetition of dialogue even within pages of each other (just a couple). The ending was a bit of a surprise... the reasoning didn't...

    A good read Although the emotions dont run as deep as they did in the first book, Catalyst delivers an amazing visual ride of storytelling and evil plotline that plays heavily into continuing from book 1 without building more into book 2. She does a wonderful job of building charac...

    The second book on the Hidden Planet series; it can be read as a stand alone but, where is the fun in that? Let me say I was utterly surprised by the story; I would have never expected the next book on this series to be Esania?s story, not the way she was presented on book one, all...

    This was hard for me to rate. I didn't read the first in the series but caught on to what was happening with out too much trouble. It is a good sci fi action story, didn't feel the romance. I didn't care for the H for the first half of the book. I didn't feel a romance connecting betwe...

    Continuous Awesomeness! I was hoping the second book would be as good as the first, and I was not disappointed. Anna Carven has continued to amaze me with her new world of mixed races and all the challenges they face, the expected and unexpected ones. I cannot wait to see what she c...

    Awesome Book This book was beautiful written and you're so caught up in story that you can't put down until you finish it? Loved how it picks up from where the previous one left off with a lot of action, drama, danger, passion, and steamy hot romance with awesome characters. Highly ...

    Imril and Esania are an awesome couple! I didn?t know what to think when I started this book. Is THIS guy going to be the Hero? Kind of scary fella, he is. Then, when he meets Esania, I saw possibilities. As the story progresses, their love blooms slowly and flares into something ma...

    Another great story Great story. A little slow at times, but worth the read. The end was anticlimactic and would have rather seen the relationship progress faster. The ending was also a bit confusing relating to the Naaga. But it was consistent with her way of storytelling.I can?...

    3.5 stars. This was a tricky one to rate. The characters were interesting and multi-dimensional, the world building was good, and the plot not bad. For some reason it just didn?t resonate with me - it didn?t engage my emotions as much as I hoped it would. Overall still a good b...

    Enjoyable Read Great follow up to Destroyer, even though Celexa and Ares are just seen briefly. The Drakhin history and mating ritual was very detailed and the elgida a beautiful thing. Esania and Imril relationship was not insta love and grew at an acceptable pace. Waiting for Mael...

    Didn?t work for me Anna Carven has been an auto buy for me. I especially love her Dark Planet series. This book I felt moved slow. I keep reading waiting for things to pick up. For me, it never did. Will I get any more in this series, probably not. ...

    Fascinating! Anna Carven continues to draw you in to her books from the minute you begin reading and keeps you involved with the characters throughout. I have read all of her books and have never been disappointed. Already looking forward to the next book in this series. ...

    Catalyst Wonderful story with an awesome couple. The supporting characters were great and I can't wait to read Mael and Sara's story. The world building was fascinating and so well constructed. I really enjoyed this book and I would highly recommend this series. ...

    3.5 stars. This was a tricky one to rate. The characters were interesting and multi-dimensional, the world building was good, and the plot not bad. For some reason it just didn?t resonate with me - it didn?t engage my emotions as much as I hoped it would. Overall still a good b...

    I read Catalyst 13 months after book one, and it was too long. In Destroyer, Anna Carven creates a new, complex world with multiple alien races interacting on one horrific, massive, sentient space ship. It was convoluted at the time to read. More than a year later, I had forgotten impo...

    Esania is making the best of situations she can on Khira. Previously responsible for the Earther females, Esania continues to care for her charges as best she can though the Vradhu are making it difficult. Imril, Lightbringer twin, Overlord of Khira, awakens weak and confused to fi...

    Although there were a handful of grammatical errors, this was a fantastic read for a sci fi romance. I can?t wait for Mael and Sara?s story. ...

    Sorry, but I need to deduct one star for sloppy editing. A lot is being repeated, some grammatical errors and there is also a few sentences which seemed to be in the wrong place. One or two more beta readers could have done the trick on this one. On we go to the review: The main co...

    A real drag compared to her other series I really hate to give a bad review for this author since she wrote one of my favorite series (Dark Planet Warriors, which is amazing!), but gah this book was a drag. The potential was there and the characters were better than the first book ...

    After the events in book 1, Esania and her, err, handmaidens (I guess? People? The one's she's looking after?) are stranded on Khira with the rest of the mercenaries and a group of Vradhu after the crazed living ship they were on...MAN, book one was a wild ride, wasn't it? Totally wild...

    DNF I read this thru KU. I bailed at 18%. I should've read the summary before starting this but enjoyed the 1st book so much that I jumped straight into this and immediately regretted it. I ABHOR romance books about slavery and/or abuse. The H in this is a slaver who thinks himself ...

    Couldn't put down! I don't know where to start but to say this is one of my favorite books by Anna. I couldn't put it down. I've been waiting on her next release and I wasn't disappointed. Must read! ...

    Very, very redundant. The same things over and over. This book could have been at least 25% shorter. I liked the story, though. I will readp the next one. ...

    Ok like just barely a romance, but still a pretty interesting sci fi fantasy situation, I have to say. This didn't suck! ...

    Changes, Learn to Accept the Strange? A Flying Demon?of Khira? Imril?, the immortal lightbringer, wakes up from a deep sleep where his body self repaired, but how many years has he been out? He is starving and flies away on his leathery wings to find food. He eats the...

    I love all of AC work, in fact it?s very seldom I give her less than 5 stars, she?s a master at creating the kind of über Alpha that just skirts the line of being overbearing, but it?s her h?s that pull that overbearing into protectors making them wonderfully exciting strong m...

    Look, I love Anna Carven. I adore her Dark Planet Warriors series and still re-read it. It's right up there in my favourite series of all time. I don't follow Authors on FB but I follow her, that says a lot. This new series started off well. I liked 'Destroyer' so you can imagine I ...

    Catalyst was one of those stories which don't allow you to breathe, eat or drink while reading it. I was so intrigued by Imril and his past (and future), I was devouring every word Anna Carven had written like it was my last meal on Earth. I can't wait to see what's in store for Mael....

    Imril and Esania If you want an offworld adventure, a complete immersion into another reality, read this series. This is a smart, all encompassing and unique world build. The intricacies are such that your intellect is always engaged. Crash landing on the planet Khira, it is poisono...

    I'm sorry but no Not my cup of tea, reading this was too confusing, probably because I could not remember the first book story line ,its been so long, just finish this book and I'm still confused, sucking energy of your mate to survive is weird but some what interesting not to menti...

    My reaction: not as good as Destroyer, the first book. While I enjoyed the story I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the internal commentary, and a repetition of dialogue even within pages of each other (just a couple). The ending was a bit of a surprise... the reasoning didn't...

    A good read Although the emotions dont run as deep as they did in the first book, Catalyst delivers an amazing visual ride of storytelling and evil plotline that plays heavily into continuing from book 1 without building more into book 2. She does a wonderful job of building charac...

    The second book on the Hidden Planet series; it can be read as a stand alone but, where is the fun in that? Let me say I was utterly surprised by the story; I would have never expected the next book on this series to be Esania?s story, not the way she was presented on book one, all...

    This was hard for me to rate. I didn't read the first in the series but caught on to what was happening with out too much trouble. It is a good sci fi action story, didn't feel the romance. I didn't care for the H for the first half of the book. I didn't feel a romance connecting betwe...

    Continuous Awesomeness! I was hoping the second book would be as good as the first, and I was not disappointed. Anna Carven has continued to amaze me with her new world of mixed races and all the challenges they face, the expected and unexpected ones. I cannot wait to see what she c...

    Awesome Book This book was beautiful written and you're so caught up in story that you can't put down until you finish it? Loved how it picks up from where the previous one left off with a lot of action, drama, danger, passion, and steamy hot romance with awesome characters. Highly ...

    Didn?t work for me Anna Carven has been an auto buy for me. I especially love her Dark Planet series. This book I felt moved slow. I keep reading waiting for things to pick up. For me, it never did. Will I get any more in this series, probably not. ...

    Fascinating! Anna Carven continues to draw you in to her books from the minute you begin reading and keeps you involved with the characters throughout. I have read all of her books and have never been disappointed. Already looking forward to the next book in this series. ...

    Enjoyable Read Great follow up to Destroyer, even though Celexa and Ares are just seen briefly. The Drakhin history and mating ritual was very detailed and the elgida a beautiful thing. Esania and Imril relationship was not insta love and grew at an acceptable pace. Waiting for Mael...

    Catalyst What a fantastic book! What a fantastic plot! What fantastic characters! Anna Craven has really outdone herself with book two in love he Hidden Planet series. Outstanding writing. Great build up. I loved it. ...

    Didn?t work for me Anna Carven has been an auto buy for me. I especially love her Dark Planet series. This book I felt moved slow. I keep reading waiting for things to pick up. For me, it never did. Will I get any more in this series, probably not. ...

    I read Catalyst 13 months after book one, and it was too long. In Destroyer, Anna Carven creates a new, complex world with multiple alien races interacting on one horrific, massive, sentient space ship. It was convoluted at the time to read. More than a year later, I had forgotten impo...

    Esania is making the best of situations she can on Khira. Previously responsible for the Earther females, Esania continues to care for her charges as best she can though the Vradhu are making it difficult. Imril, Lightbringer twin, Overlord of Khira, awakens weak and confused to fi...

    A real drag compared to her other series I really hate to give a bad review for this author since she wrote one of my favorite series (Dark Planet Warriors, which is amazing!), but gah this book was a drag. The potential was there and the characters were better than the first book ...

    After the events in book 1, Esania and her, err, handmaidens (I guess? People? The one's she's looking after?) are stranded on Khira with the rest of the mercenaries and a group of Vradhu after the crazed living ship they were on...MAN, book one was a wild ride, wasn't it? Totally wild...

    A good read Although the emotions dont run as deep as they did in the first book, Catalyst delivers an amazing visual ride of storytelling and evil plotline that plays heavily into continuing from book 1 without building more into book 2. She does a wonderful job of building charac...

    This was hard for me to rate. I didn't read the first in the series but caught on to what was happening with out too much trouble. It is a good sci fi action story, didn't feel the romance. I didn't care for the H for the first half of the book. I didn't feel a romance connecting betwe...

    Awesome Book This book was beautiful written and you're so caught up in story that you can't put down until you finish it? Loved how it picks up from where the previous one left off with a lot of action, drama, danger, passion, and steamy hot romance with awesome characters. Highly ...

    Imril and Esania are an awesome couple! I didn?t know what to think when I started this book. Is THIS guy going to be the Hero? Kind of scary fella, he is. Then, when he meets Esania, I saw possibilities. As the story progresses, their love blooms slowly and flares into something ma...

    Look, I love Anna Carven. I adore her Dark Planet Warriors series and still re-read it. It's right up there in my favourite series of all time. I don't follow Authors on FB but I follow her, that says a lot. This new series started off well. I liked 'Destroyer' so you can imagine I ...

    Catalyst was one of those stories which don't allow you to breathe, eat or drink while reading it. I was so intrigued by Imril and his past (and future), I was devouring every word Anna Carven had written like it was my last meal on Earth. I can't wait to see what's in store for Mael....

    I'm sorry but no Not my cup of tea, reading this was too confusing, probably because I could not remember the first book story line ,its been so long, just finish this book and I'm still confused, sucking energy of your mate to survive is weird but some what interesting not to menti...

    My reaction: not as good as Destroyer, the first book. While I enjoyed the story I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the internal commentary, and a repetition of dialogue even within pages of each other (just a couple). The ending was a bit of a surprise... the reasoning didn't...

    I read Catalyst 13 months after book one, and it was too long. In Destroyer, Anna Carven creates a new, complex world with multiple alien races interacting on one horrific, massive, sentient space ship. It was convoluted at the time to read. More than a year later, I had forgotten impo...

    Esania is making the best of situations she can on Khira. Previously responsible for the Earther females, Esania continues to care for her charges as best she can though the Vradhu are making it difficult. Imril, Lightbringer twin, Overlord of Khira, awakens weak and confused to fi...

    A real drag compared to her other series I really hate to give a bad review for this author since she wrote one of my favorite series (Dark Planet Warriors, which is amazing!), but gah this book was a drag. The potential was there and the characters were better than the first book ...

    After the events in book 1, Esania and her, err, handmaidens (I guess? People? The one's she's looking after?) are stranded on Khira with the rest of the mercenaries and a group of Vradhu after the crazed living ship they were on...MAN, book one was a wild ride, wasn't it? Totally wild...

    A good read Although the emotions dont run as deep as they did in the first book, Catalyst delivers an amazing visual ride of storytelling and evil plotline that plays heavily into continuing from book 1 without building more into book 2. She does a wonderful job of building charac...

    The second book on the Hidden Planet series; it can be read as a stand alone but, where is the fun in that? Let me say I was utterly surprised by the story; I would have never expected the next book on this series to be Esania?s story, not the way she was presented on book one, all...

    This was hard for me to rate. I didn't read the first in the series but caught on to what was happening with out too much trouble. It is a good sci fi action story, didn't feel the romance. I didn't care for the H for the first half of the book. I didn't feel a romance connecting betwe...
