Victoria Hart grew up a wanderer
as her mother could not stay in any one place for very long. When Tori
managed to stay in a residence for more than a cup of milk, she was
with a foster family. She relishes settling at one address in Hope,
Ohio where she runs an antique shop.
Widower Captain Reese Taren arrives in Hope seeking the Heart of
Destiny, an artifact he does not believe exists but his Emperor sent
him to find it to save what is left of his world from alien invaders.
He kidnaps Tori who Reese thinks is the key to destroying the feral
enemy he loathes for killing his wife, child and others. However, he
never expected her to be his Heart of Destiny, but knows what must
happen to his beloved to save a world and perhaps a universe.
Dark Star Dawning is an entertaining science fiction romance starring
a heroic male and a bewildered female feeling out of her element
within a worlds collide setting. Fast-paced, readers will enjoy the
dilemma the lead couple confronts as the risk for Tori is almost
certain death, but doing nothing means billions die. Although the plot
contains several inconsistencies, Elysa Hendricks provides an engaging
sci fi love story.
