KINDLE UNLIMITED PUBLISHER: Anna Carven RELEASED: April 20, 2018 GENRE: SCIFI, ROMANCE LENGTH: 242 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
Torin Mardak came to Zarhab Groht to hunt. Some idiot's been selling Callidum weapons on the black market, and he's been tasked with finding the traitor.
The illegal trading station isn't exactly Torin's favorite place in the Nine Galaxies. It's dirty, chaotic, and full of thieves and murderers, but as an elite Kordolian First Division warrior, he's the most dangerous thing on this floating cesspit, and he won't let anything stand in his way.
But when he encounters a group of humans who really, really shouldn't be here, his priorities might just have to change, because one of them is about to get betrayed in the worst possible way... And she just so happens to be exactly his type. THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
Dark Mercenaries is a spin-off series of the Dark Planet Warriors series. I am not sure what it was about that series but the first book I loved, and as the series progressed, I got more and more bored. I didn’t get past book 3 in the original series. Which is crazy for me since this is everything I love. Aliens, check; romance, check; danger, check. I just couldn’t put my finger on the problem. So when I saw Tamin Choas, I thought I would give it a shot. FYI this will spoil major events in the Darkstar Mercenaries series. The plotline was interesting, and the characters were well developed. As I am writing this review, I am thinking its got to be the pacing that is throwing me off. Because I got nothing else, I would love to love this because it’s a great story, but I just found my mind wondering, and I couldn’t stay focused. I’ve had that issue with all of Carven’s book. I think I might be broken and in no way should this review effect anyone's desire to read her work. I am giving Taming Choas 3 Boundless stars, and I think it has a great story with great characters, It just didn’t grab my attention.
