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?

Another great treasure hunt involving crazy characters. The Phoenix brothers are really cool treasure hunters, full of charm, each with his own specialty. Dathan is the leader and the main character. He is the charming bad boy who accepts to take Eos on her quest.
Eos is a scientific chasing a myth, persuaded her mother was right and determined to find Star End's and the Mona Lisa. I loved her markings and her spirit which made her very attaching even when stubborn.
The two of them are like magnets, attracting and fighting each others. Dathan shows a very caring and charming side and Eos totally enchants him.
Their adventure take them beyond the known univers, making them discover new lands and new things about themselves.
I can't wait to read Nik and Zayn's story!!

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.

Dr. Eos Rai, an astro-archaeologist at the Galactic Institute for Historical Preservation, is desperate to find Star’s End and a piece of the Mona Lisa. She can’t secure the Institute’s help, so she recruits a notorious band of treasure hunters, the Phoenix brothers. As they search, she gets involved with Dathan Phoenix, but to what end?

I like that Eos is not a nitwit. She does not go into working with disreputable thieves with just a prayer. She already knows and trusts one of them because she used to work with him. Dathan finds her smarts super hot, and a woman who knows how to use her brain does not intimidate him.
The secondary characters are a lot of fun. The other Phoenix brothers are well defined and appealing, if susceptible to masculine idiocy (there’s a scene where they fight each other due to what I call testosterone poisoning). There’s also the treasure hunter Nera Darc, who I hope shows up again because she’s got just enough evil ninja badassery to keep the brothers on their toes. The sassy AI BE ll also kept me smiling.

The auction scene feels a bit contrived. Let’s make our heroine a damsel and need comforting later! Wait, what? I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to get out of it, the results of her ordeal would have happened organically without it.
Dathan and Eos are people I’d enjoy going on an adventure with, but not that complex compared to the secondary characters. Their motivations are similar and easily understood.

I’m going to keep reading the series because I want to hear more about Zayn, Darc, and Niklas.

Astro-archaeologist Eos is on the trail of a mythical Terran settlement housing valuable treasures sent off world before the planet was destroyed by war. The Institute where she works has refused to fund her, however, which sends her to the Phoenix brothers, salvagers who are the best in their unsavory business. Nic worked for the Institute before joining his brothers and is ready to help. But Dathan refuses, until he comes up with a form of payment that will make the uncertain expedition worth the risk, expense and danger. He wants the priceless fragment of the Mona Lisa she believes is there. Because Eos is out of options, and e-credits, they reach an agreement. But it doesn't take long for each to realize the stakes are higher than either could have imagined.

This is a fast paced adventure filled with danger and passion. It is a great standalone series opener and I'm looking forward to continuing the series with the next book.

They say opposites attract and I guess that even holds true in the future. I have to say that although I am not normally a fan of anything Sci-Fi/Futuristic, I was pleasantly surprised with Ms. Hackett’s story. It was written in such a way that for someone like me I found myself drawn into the story looking forward to what was going to happen next.

When you need help in recovering some things that have been missing for a while who do you turn to? Well, pirates of course. If they happen to extremely hot that makes it better, right? Perhaps a little bit more enjoyable when going on the adventure to search for the items missing. In this case the ‘Mona Lisa’, which is supposed to be on Star’s End. In the future the pirates to turn to are the Phoenix Brothers.

What makes things more interesting is that said pirates (being that they are pirates) have made enemies over the years so that just adds so much more to the storyline.

Dr. Eos Rai enlists the help of the Phoenix Brothers finding that things aren’t always that simple. Finding that she is very attracted to one Phoenix brother in general, Dathan, drawn to his carefree, don’t follow the rules attitude. Dathan is also attracted to the straight laced Dr. Rai. Both have pasts with skeletons that have made them guard their hearts. But, once that guard is let down…well, then maybe they will find romance and happiness with each other.

I was entertained with this fast paced, fun, light read; which blended romance and treasure hunting in the future in such a way that it wasn’t written over my head. I was able to follow the story in which I was grabbed looking forward to seeing what happens.

Thank-you Ms. Hackett for writing a simplistic futuristic story that was fun and so very entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone scared of those Sci-Fi/Futuristic stories. A good story to get your feet wet with.

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 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.
