Sara's Review: Dark Horse by Michelle Diener
Publisher Via NetGalley
Released: June 15, 2015
Genre: Sci Fi, Soap Opera
Length: 468 Pages
Some secrets carry the weight of the world. Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she's made a powerful ally--a fellow prisoner with whom she's formed a strong bond. Sazo's an artificial intelligence. He's saved her from captivity and torture, but he's also put her in the middle of a conflict, leaving Rose with her loyalties divided. Captain Dav Jallan doesn't know why he and his crew have stumbled across an almost legendary Class 5 battleship, but he's not going to complain. The only problem is, all its crew are dead, all except for one strange, new alien being. She calls herself Rose. She seems small and harmless, but less and less about her story is adding up, and Dav has a bad feeling his crew, and maybe even the four planets, are in jeopardy. The Class 5's owners, the Tecran, look set to start a war to get it back and Dav suspects Rose isn't the only alien being who survived what happened on the Class 5. And whatever else is out there is playing its own games. In this race for the truth, he's going to have to go against his leaders and trust the dark horse.
Review - 5 Stars
I was provided a Copy from the Publisher Via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely freaking LOVED this book! Science Fiction Romance is probably on of my favorite genre of books. Dark Horse has rocketed it's way all the way into my top 5 all time favorites. I loved Rose! She is such a strong lead. Yet at the same time you feel her vulnerability, her pain her rage. Her interaction with Sazo and basically being an AI conscience, Love her! I couldn't put it down and devoured the book in a day! I loved this world so much I didn't want it to end. I was finding myself stalling to finish the book. Part sci-fi part alien romance, part mystery thriller with political intrigue (just Alien Politics) all rolled into an extraordinary book that I can't wait to read again!
