Book: Ravyn's Flight
Author: Patti O'Shea
Publisher: Love Spell
Blurb: Alone on a strange planet. Their teammates murdered by an unknown enemy. Help weeks away. Could there be a worse time to fall in love?
Ravyn Verdier was the communications specialist on a mission to test the habitability of Jarved Nine. Damon Brody was the commander who rescued her when the rest of her team is mysteriously killed. Trapped on a planet that harbored an unimaginable evil, they must depend on one another, trust each other implicitly.
An abandoned city held the key to their survival, but what they found behind its ancient walls defied all their preconceived notions, tested the very limits of the bond that had formed between them. To succeed, they would have to cast aside their doubts and listen to their hearts. For only when they were linked body and soul—when they realized love was their greatest weapon—would they be able to defeat the monstrous force bent on destroying all life.
I found Ravyn's Flight just a month or so again thus proving my theory about not looking for something and it will eventually show up.
After flitting around from TBR book to TBR book trying to choose and having nothing grab me, I finally settled on this book.
I really got into this one and enjoyed it quite a bit. I love Futuristics - or Sci Fi Romance as they seem to be called these days and this was no exception.
It started out with a bang when our heroine Ravyn was the only survivor of a viscious attack on the exploration team on an earth like planet. A Special Ops team came to her rescue only to have every one of the team killed just like the exploration team with the lone excpetion of their leader Damon Brody.
The run for safety by our hero/heroine was suspenseful and well done. And their attraction to each other crackled. There is also a very good secondary love story between Ravyn's brother and her best friend who are on their way to rescue the two lone survivors.
I thought the character development quite well done and I know there are some readers who don't really like this angle, but their was almost a soul mate feeling to the two of them. Since I like that angle, it was right up my alley.
I'll be looking forward to reading Eternal Nights now as well as catching up on the other books she's written.
