Dark Beyond the Stars Anthology where space meets story…. Space opera at its finest; or so says the blurb, is a very diverse compilation of stories that delve into several ideals and ideologies of space life and travel. As with all anthologies there were some I enjoyed more than others. Waiting until the end for 2092 by Rysa Walker was hard to wait until the end for but very much worth it. Her glimpse into the Chronos world she writes so brilliantly was very emotional and moving as well as insightful. Dragonet by Sara Reine held me captive as her character realized what was really the motivation behind her enemy’s defence of their planet and what she did to help save the extinction of a race. Winner Takes All by Elle Casey was a fun escape that left this reader with a taste for more including finding out the basic rules for the game of givit and if we have a human version available to play. Animal Planet by Patrice Fitzgerald was another that captured my interest as it twisted the ideals of evolution of man after restarting life on a new planet.

There are 11 stories in all in this anthology which are followed by a brief interview of the author that not only gave their “background story” but in some cases were a funny and entertaining story in itself. I was very impressed by this novella compilation despite, if I am being quite honest, the fact that space opera’s or rather most books set in a futuristic world don’t always end up high on my TBR list. Yes there were favorites and they tended to be the ones that drew me in on more of an emotional basis but as a whole I was very much entertained by them all. Take a chance on this one. I am confident that readers of many genres will find it an entertaining read.

Here are a few of my personal favorite stories……

2092 by Rysa Walker

Chronoton readings on the planet XE7 that Mila had brought to the attention of the Voshti have them salivating about winning their war with the Lor. Her orders to initiate 20 areas of attack and hope that the people of this world can agree that the attacks were from out of their known world then deceive the inhabitants in this world into believing that they must join the Alliance and fight with them against the Lor. Taking a risk and going after the Chronoton herself is dangerous but when she finds a way to not only take the powerful tool with her but possibly change her own past, saving the one who still held her heart as well as her people from the wars that follow trusting in the right people will be the biggest risk of all.

Dragonet by Sara Reine

Aja Skytoucher was calculating the damage her carriage had already taken when one of the inhabitants of Drakor III attacked her ship. With only one other body on board to help her evade the massive talons of the dragon that hunted them down after their carriage had taken a massive hit she used what she could to both take out the enemy and to make the crash landing as safe as humanly possible. Following the wreckage of her attacker they find an amazing site just beyond. Realizing what must be done and accepting her fate for her choice Aja is nudged into seeing the truth by an unlikely body.

The Event by Automn Kalquist

A powerful novella that brings to light so many of humanities best and worst qualities. Life, death, love, destruction, hate, religion…. All lived by one that holds the fate of the handful of those left to rebuild a future on a new planet. A chance to try again or to put that hope aside and turn off the lights once and for all.

Animal Planet by Patrice Fitzgerald

Jane Blake wanted to volunteer to see the planet…. They needed females and she was female, who really cared that she was 72 and not in her 20’s. Headed to Endrosa and Fort Beta she was leaving behind her entire world.

At Fort Gamma Roark and Curtis found one of the animals that had taken over both Fort Alpha and Beta lumbering towards them. Ready to take it out they stopped when they noticed the recorder that had initially been attached to the first inhabitants on the furry creature. Capturing it they watch the recording of one of the early settlers and how she got separated from her group but as to what happened to her that allowed this creature to have her camera was still a problem to solve.

Protocol A235 by Theresa Kay

Beth is a part of the maintenance crew on their way along with thousands of humans towards Zenith…. One last ditch effort to save humankind. Waking to take her first 30 day stint she finds irregularities…. And what’s more, she finds put the truth behind Protocol A235 and what she must do to save what’s left of the human race.

Winner Takes All by Elle Casey

Langlade was all for a good game of givit and when a pretty young thing was offering up her V-card he had to get in on the deal. Putting up his ship against her offer didn’t harbour a second thought but when she pulled out a hand that next to nothing could beat he knew that he had jumped in water that was too deep.

A bet by the new groom, the Earl of Dorchester, might not have been the best thing to admit to a new bride.

Sharing Hailey by Samantha Ann King

4 Hockeystyxxx

Hailey Anderson had been in love with her brothers’ best friends forever but she could neither choose between the two or let one or both of them go from her life. Even though she had dreamed of being more than a “kid sister” to them for years she could not stop herself from wanting both men. Mark Allen and Tony Adamo had waited for Hailey while she stumbled in and out of relationships and inevitably came to them each time they fell apart. Waiting forever it seemed for her to step up and make a choice between the two, they had both loved her for far too long to wait any longer. This last breakup only pushed them further especially when the man threatened her. They had had enough and they were going to make her see that she needed to make a decision because two men who loved her were through waiting. They couldn’t chose and if she didn’t well then they would just share.

The problem is they had neither Tony nor Mark had any idea it was going to truly be a threesome relationship. Shocking both of them as much as they had ever been with the level of intimacy between themselves when they found pleasure in her bed. Daniel, her ex, isn’t finished though and his attacks are escalating but with bringing the cops in on it there are some questions that need to be answered. When they are forced to extremes to protect themselves they must find a way to deal with the aftermath, face the truth of their relationship and re-evaluate the connection that they share.

This book brought the heat. I was totally wrapped up in this story and screaming for more! I loved their intimacy, feeling the emotion as they explored their feelings for each other and struggled to make sense out of their hearts craving for a more permanent connection between the three that they had never entertained before. I wanted more of the Mark and Tony explorations but my one disappointment was that I was left hanging in that department with only a taste to whet my appetite instead of a grand buffet of M/M/F intimacies. If you want to explore this genre a little further and are just testing the waters it is a delicious choice for biting into a ménage for the first time and one that kept an open to anything reader like me captivated as well.

I received an ebook copy through Net Galley from the publisher, Carina Press, for my unbiased review.
