5-kisses review and a RECOMMENDED READ
"I like the balance of
humor and danger in this story, and the action kept me glued to
the pages... I enjoyed watching as suspicion turned to
admiration, and admiration became the first flickers of love
between Czerno and Zara... Pick up a copy of Borealis: Black
Dragon, by Vijaya Schartz, and enter a world of adventure,
romance, and a spoiled cat named Marshmallow."

When bounty hunter
Akira Karyudo accepted her assignment, something didn't add up.
Why would the Trans Planetary Protectorate want a kidnapped
orphan dead or alive?
She will get to the truth once she finds the boy, and the no
good SOB who snatched him from a psychiatric hospital. With her
cheetah, Freckles, a genetically enhanced feline retriever,
Akira sets out to flush them out of the bowels of the BOREALIS
space station. But when she finds her fugitives, the kidnapper
is not what she expects.
Markku, a decorated rebel soldier, stole his nephew from the
authorities, who performed painful experiments on the boy. Stuck
on Borealis, he protects the child, but how can he shield him
from the horribly dangerous conditions in the lawless sublevels
of the decrepit space station?
Akira faces the worst moral dilemma of her career. Law or
justice, duty or love. She can't have it both ways.
If readers want to see and feel and believe they are in deep
space, then "Borealis IX: Akira's Choice" is the perfect choice!
With a touch of romance, the vivid descriptions and beautifully
developed characters masterfully presented by Schartz create a
virtual world that invite the reader not merely to observe, but
to walk amongst them and participate... This is a delicate art,
and Schartz wields her weapons with precision and skill.
Banzai!" 5 stars - exceptional - recommended read -
captivating story with interesting, appealing characters. Being
a cat lover, I found the relationship, with its psychic element,
between Freckles and Shane absolutely captivating. As always,
Ms. Schartz’s solid plot and crisply-written prose incorporates
a good blend of action and intrigue... This story can easily
stand alone... but I believe you’ll enjoy this exciting Sci-Fi
series much more if you start reading it from the beginning...
the Borealis series is a must read for all fans of Sci-Fi
romance. Go pick them up and settle into your favorite armchair
for some entertaining reading.
