Beyond Galaxy’s Edge (The Phoenix Adventures #5) by Anna Hackett
Science Fiction Romance
Ambitious Patrol Captain Nissa Sander has spent three years at the galaxy’s edge keeping the law and order, and chasing scoundrel smuggler, Justyn Phoenix. But the charming rogue has always outwitted her and she’s had a hard time ignoring his hard body and handsome face. But when one of the galaxy’s most important documents—the US Constitution—is stolen, Nissa finds herself working with the very man she’s been trying to throw in her brig.
Justyn Phoenix embraces life and offers everyone a wink and a smile. He’s also in love with a spit-and-polish Patrol captain. Yep, crazy in love, and he knows she’ll never love him back. But when the opportunity arises to work alongside Nissa on a wild and crazy mission to recover the US Constitution, he can’t resist.
But nothing on this treasure hunt is as it seems. The trail leads them to fake documents, rival treasure hunters, and a millennia old mystery. As the hunt takes them beyond the galaxy’s edge, Justyn and Nissa will face the firestorm of their desire, and soon learn if they can survive long enough to save the galaxy.
Beyond Galaxy’s Edge is my favorite in the Phoenix Adventures. I loved Justyn Phoenix. He is the perfect hero. Nissa Sander on the other hand needs some work before she can be his match. That does not stop Justyn from trying to bring them together.
Beyond Galaxy’s Edge has the perfect blend of action scenes and sequel scenes. Each time they take action that should solve the mystery they find that they have to back off and try something else. The tension that builds trying to find the treasure and the tension that builds between Justyn and Nissa keeps the story on the razor’s edge.
Great writing, world building and character development make this a great Science Fiction Romance novel. While this is my favorite so far in the series the other books are also very good stories. Start here with Beyond Galaxy’s Edge or start at the beginning of the series. Either way you will have an enjoyable journey into space.
I received a free copy of Beyond Galaxy's Edge from the author in return for an honest review.
