Présentation de l'éditeur

Dr. Eos Rai has spent a lifetime dedicated to her mother's dream of finding the long-lost Mona Lisa. When Eos uncovers tantalizing evidence of Star's End—the last known location of the masterpiece—she's shocked when her employer, the Galactic Institute of Historic Preservation, refuses to back her expedition. Left with no choice, Eos must trust the most notorious treasure hunter in the galaxy, a man she finds infuriating, annoying and far too tempting.

Dathan Phoenix can sniff out relics at a stellar mile. With his brothers by his side, he takes the adventures that suit him and refuses to become a lazy, bitter failure like their father. When the gorgeous Eos Rai comes looking to hire him, he knows she's trouble, but he's lured into a hunt that turns into a wild and dangerous adventure. As Eos and Dathan are pushed to their limits, they discover treasure isn't the only thing they're drawn to…but how will their desire survive when Dathan demands the Mona Lisa as his payment?

this was a good quick and fun read. I love Dathan. the bad boy treasure hunter who has a sweet side particularly towards Eos. Loves his brothers who are awesome and has a insecurity and fear of becoming like his dad. When Eos first comes to this group, Dathan is opposed but is attracted to Eos. We see this when they go to market and he purchases something for her. Eos puts a smile on his face.

when they all finally agree, the journey comes with danger and the danger seems to find them. Along the way adventures occur and we see Dathan save Eos and show how he feels. These two have such sexual tension it's no wonder they got anything done. When they discover at star's end it is incredible because there is so many unknowns. when these two get together sparks fly. But self doubt does come into play for both and they do silly things.

A HEA does occur. I would love to know what is going on between Niklas and Darc. There is something hopefully that will be a different book. A great adventorous love story that will have you smiling.

Ancient treasures from long ago Earth are hidden in a mysterious place called Star’s End. Is this a place of fantasy or does it really exist? When a nuclear disaster forces Earth inhabitants to flee for their lives, it was said they took priceless pieces of their history with them to Star’s End, where they formed their own colony. Are treasures and works of art really still in existence? Could this mean the Mona Lisa still existed? Dr. Eos Rai’s late mother believed it and she is determined to fulfill her mother’s lifelong quest. In order to do so, she must hire the infamous Phoenix brothers to take her on her journey. Legend in space, these men are daring, reckless and far more intelligent than people give them credit for.

To say that opposites attract would be an understatement as Eos and Dathan, one of the brothers butt heads at every turn, all while sensing a sexual chemistry that threatens to explode like a solar flare. Dathan is dashing, arrogant and so not Eos’ type, while Eos is all business, determined and prickly, everything that just grinds at Dathan. Too bad she was also beautiful, mysterious and intriguing, too! Will their own self-doubts keep them apart or will their chemistry burn like a supernova? Will this dangerous mission come between them, as treasures often do? More importantly, is it possible the Mona Lisa will outlast Earth?

At Star’s End by Anna Hackett sizzles with tension, action and danger, all while adding the sparks of a sometimes sweet, but always exciting budding romance. Ms. Hackett has taken us on a wonderful, fantasy journey to places unknown with a cast of characters that will make you smile, then have you in awe of their serious sides when the danger ratchets up. Dathan is tough, but there is an underlying fear that makes him extremely vulnerable. Eos is gutsy, intelligent and determined to clear her family’s good name while being lonely and insecure in her own right. Ms. Hackett’s imaginative world is like taking a trip into space!

So strap in, enjoy the heat of romance and the daring of this group of space travellers! I feel safe to say, this was an out of this world experience and a highly enjoyable,” quick escape” read that will have you back on Earth in no time!

A long long time ago I read a book about a girl who sought an artifact that would save her family's reputation as antiquity dealers and hopefully their debt. I'll be damned if I can remember the name of the book (and I can't even remember when I read it only know it was before I was logging into Goodreads religiously...so that's like 20 years or so of reading journals written BY HAND to dig through), but it left me with this simmering sort of want for books about girls exploring and finding romance and being historically inclined.

So basically a female Indiana Jones.

At Star's End is kind of my karma cookie for waiting for it. There's action, adventure, tension, romance, space battles, weird cultures, weirder human eccentricities, family politics you shouldn't broach to save your soul, female merc, legends and above all a character named Dr. Eos Rai who is just all kinds of cool. I wouldn't call this perfect - at one point, to avoid a worse fate, Eos is put into a position that forced her to place all her trust in the Phoenix brothers after a very short amount of time that if they had cut their losses would have left her in a situation of extreme degradation...but after some angry words its more or less hand waved away. Either Eos had been in WORST situations or it was a plot point of convenience to push a couple of other points along.

Regardless Eos is my kind of gal. Not once did she back down from the belief that finding the Mona Lisa fragment, and Star's End in general, was what she needed to accomplish. Pirates, slavers, crazy mercs who the Phoenix brothers were constantly in contention with be damned she WOULD get there and prove her mother's words true. I got a little tired of the trope "I find him attractive but wait wait don't let it on!!", since Dathan pretty much said "I dig you, you dig me, let's explore this". Her reasoning was sound - Dathan also said it was going to be a short fling - it didn't feel like a genuine response from her.

Dathan was both attractive and infuriating at the same time. He spent an awful lot of time comparing everything Eos said or did against an arbitrary set of guidelines born from dislike of "her kind" (Museum people). He didn't acknowledge the true reason behind his fear of falling for her until literally everyone in the book had told him that's why he was pushing her away. I mean seriously, Eos forgave him (whether I liked it not) for practically selling her int slavery at one point - how much more reason do you need to know a girl won't run out?

I did like the tidbits of world building Hackett wove in. Eos' people for instance are born with intricate tattoos - something that had evolved over the generations since leaving Earththat was. The rest is pretty standard sci fi space romance stuff, though the Phoenix brothers seemed to have some nifty gadgets running around. Niklas (who Eos had worked with previously for a short time at the Museum, before he either quit, was booted or some combo therein) was a bit of a cipher for me. He wavered back and forth between charming good boy charms and brooding recluse. Zayn, who was definitely more my cup of tea, was brash and humorous and sarcastic.

In all this was a fun adventure with just enough romance to not be overwhelming that built had a believable rate given the situation (emotions run high!). I'm interested to see what happens next for the Phoenix Bros...tho Hackett already laid the groundwork for Niklas' romance I believe.

This book had more elements of a "futuristic" romance than a SF romance. The world-building was sketchy, with the feel of "it's this way because I say so" rather than a solid system of logic or canon. (Of course, I thought the same thing of Frank Herbert's "Dune," not being an adolescent boy when I read it.) The stellar distances and travel time felt disproportionately small and rushed, as though they drove around the block, instead of actually traveling the six hours it would take to cross the 300 miles (OK, 3,000,000,000,000,000 miles) between points A and B.

Further, the characters' names were a mite obvious: the Phoenix brothers' nemeses were Darc and Braxx. For future reference, one X is sufficiently villainous.

The major factual error in the plot may have prejudiced me from the start: the Mona Lisa was painted on a wooden panel, not canvas. Two seconds with Wikipedia tells me that it's poplar wood. Anyone using such a famous item as their MacGuffin should do the basic research.

The characterizations were reasonably three-dimensional, and showed some development over the story. The author's ideas are fun, and she had a good time writing the book. The reference to "learning the classics" had me laughing out loud.

The proof-reading was very good, with minimal typographic errors. Overall, a 2.5-star "about average" first effort. (The Soviet judge gave it only one star because of the MacGuffin fail.) I don't know if I'll purchase the rest of the series, although I'll keep it on the "Maybe" list.

I've read this series completely out of order - but it didn't hurt the stories at all. This first one in the series (which I'm reading after book 4) is shorter than the others, but that doesn't mean it is less of a story. It packs the same punch, adventure and romance I've come to expect from the Phoenix brothers. I loved both the hero and the heroine in this book, and it had a good archaeology mystery mixed with space assassins, alien environments and great romance. Can't recommend this series enough.
