MYSTIC is the second book in the
Cat Star Legacy series by
Cheryl Brooks. There is an exotic quality about Zetithian hottie Aidan
BanadĂ¤nsk, with his magical abilities inherited from his mother, and his
catlike appearance from his father, but he is the quintessential "good
guy." Although Sula Enduran is a resilient and capable woman, she is a
tough spot when Aidan finds her and she's happy for the rescue. Like
so many other books set in this Cat Star world created by Cheryl
Brooks, MYSTIC is loads of laughs,
with a fascinating adventure, memorable characters, and plenty of sexy
times. Along the way, Aidan and Sula pick up some helpers in their
mission to expose and put a stop to evildoers responsible for planetary
Aidan is my favorite type of hero. Even though he is the kind of guy
who is typically very sought after because of his good looks, wealth,
and the reputation Zetithians have for being phenomenal lovers, he is a
self-deprecating sweetheart of a guy who volunteers at an orphanage.
Sula is literally Aidan's dream woman. He found her after having a
vision. These two people are a perfect match because they're both
brave and sweet- natured. The romance that develops between Aidan
and Sula seems very organic and, although the relationship develops at
hyper speed, a friendship forms first before any physical intimacy.
Cheryl Brooks tells MYSTIC from
alternating perspectives to give the reader a better understanding of
how Aidan and Sula really feel about each other. As Aidan nurses Sula
while she has an injury to her leg, there is plenty of flirting and cute
quips, but it's Aidan's thoughtfulness and the kindness he shows to
those around him that really have Sula falling for him. Aidan becomes
the person Sula can rely on and support her, and Sula is good for his
Cheryl Brooks does a fantastic job of balancing the humor and romance
with the adventure and sense of danger from some unknown assassins.
The assorted allies that Aidan and Sula pick up to aid them on their
mission are Qinta and Abuti (two orphan girls who help Sula while she's
injured), Val (an enigmatic Avian clone who I'm seriously hoping Cheryl
Brooks will write more about in the future), Curly Tshevnoe (the
devilishly handsome Hans Solo in this group), and the enthusiastic
healer Giklor. All of these supporting characters are entertaining and
add to the story greatly in some way. Sula and Aidan have great
chemistry and work well as a team. All of the good guys in this story are
not quite superheroes, but ordinary yet brave good people trying to do
the right thing while getting a few thrills while playing the role of "hero."
MYSTIC provides comic book
thrills with unique characters and scintillating supergalactic romance. A
strong heroine plus a sweet hero equals one amazing romance. Super
excited to read the next installment of this Cat Star Legacy series.

lover. He died of a mysterious plagueâ€”and it's out of

Despite the prescient abilities and power over the wind that
enable Zetithian mystic Aidan BanadĂ¤nsk to rescue Sula from

But Sula's investigation has put her in the crosshairs of a
deadly conspiracy. With an entire planet's population at
stake, Sula and Aidan must risk it all to save the planet,
