Thrown together by the unforgiving demands of the phase, they must unite to save Cyprena s people from a deadly new bioweapon or be destroyed by the scars of their pasts.

I have to admit there was something quite intriguing about Jace Harrow that caught my attention in Nightfall. I was so very pleased that he got his own very sexy pair of mates in Morningstar. The Cy’ren are still fighting for their rights as free citizens. Many would like to see the majority of this race to remain firmly in archaic way of slavery. Jace and many aboard the Talon II have dedicated their life to liberating those forced into slavery.
In searching for answers to exactly what the Eppes are plotting and more knowledge as to what the Lazarus project is Jace finds that his current mission has him doing more that his duties as a soldier. In rescuing survivors he saddles himself with not one but two mates. One mate he is more than eager to take, the other he will have to fight to prove himself a good man every step of the way.
Trust is something that Bryn doesn’t give to just anyone. She also does not give it easily or freely. When Jace shows interest in Sabine’s phase it instantly raises all off Bryn’s hackles. She sees Jace and his offers as just another form of slavery, trading one master for another. As a warrior female who has claimed Sabine as her own she knows she has everything she needs to take the best care of her mate.
Sabine was a little difficult for me to love as a character. I won’t label her as weak. She is a product of the life that has been forced on her. That has made her needy to a certain extent. The effects of the phase have taken her needs to a whole new level. The benefits of the phase are that it takes the hotness of the Cy’ren Rising series into the sexy zone of erotic romance.
I completely love this series. The action is exciting, the sabotage and political conspiracies are intense, and the romance is hot. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. The climatic ending to Morningstar gives a few hints as to what will be happening to this sexy trio’s lives, along with who the next trio will be.
Favorite quote, Sabine to Bryn, about Jace: “He has to take us both, or not at all.”
