Hunt the Stars: A Novel (Starlight's Shadow Book 1) Kindle Edition
The critically acclaimed author of Polaris Rising takes readers on an exciting journey with the start of her brand-new series about a female bounty hunter and the man who is her sworn enemy.
“Jessie Mihalik is an author to watch.” — Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Octavia Zarola would do anything to keep her tiny, close-knit bounty hunting crew together—even if it means accepting a job from Torran Fletcher, a ruthless former general and her sworn enemy. When Torran offers her enough credits to not only keep her crew afloat but also hire someone to fix her ship, Tavi knows that she can’t refuse—no matter how much she’d like to.
With so much money on the line, Torran and his crew insist on joining the hunt. Tavi reluctantly agrees because while the handsome, stoic leader pushes all of her buttons—for both anger and desire—she’s endured worse, and the massive bonus payment he’s promised for a completed job is reason enough to shut up and deal.
But when they uncover a deeper plot that threatens the delicate peace between humans and Valoffs, Tavi suspects that Torran has been using her as the impetus for a new war. With the fate of her crew balanced on a knife’s edge, Tavi must decide where her loyalties lie—with the quiet Valoff who’s been lying to her, or with the human leaders who left her squad to die on the battlefield. And this time, she’s put her heart on the line.

I really enjoyed this awesome first book in her new series.
I loved this narrator and REALLY enjoyed the mmc voice that she used, very attractive pitch 🤣.
I liked both mmc and fmc as characters and enjoyed hearing about their backgrounds. I know Jessie usually only does one book per character set so next one will be I’m guessing about a fellow crew member perhaps the hacker and the guy who installed her.
4.5 star listen
Smut isnt really there and there is only one sex scene but there’s a lot over sexual tension and lust. Main theme is the world building storyline and characters working together.
Hea - yes
Can’t wait to continue, next audio due out ever shortly great work Frankie I really enjoyed your voice work.

The narrative flows really quickly, and is a real credit to the author's craft, the work she's obviously put into each word, helped by a decent editor.
Great characters, enemies to friends as cultures learn that there's more linking them then not with this band if space travelers.
I'll not given anything away and the plot is outlined in the book blurb. Only thing that I will say is if you like a found family adventure vibe with honourable character's- this book is for you.
Off to preorder book two if I can.
The main characters are well developed and the story has a couple of unexpected twists. It's well written and gripping throughout.
