The effects of the Blood Burning are
driving second-in-command officer, and vampire, Viktor
insane. The lack of sex and blood will make the insanity
permanent if Viktor doesnít find someone to help him on the
Black Star as they are too far from his home, the vampire
To pay back a debt of honor, Diamond
offers herself to Viktor. Previously saved from the Hand of
God cult, Diamond is now living on the Black Star warship
and feels that perhaps providence has brought her to Viktor
as she is the only one who can help the vampire.
Black Starís pilot Ranier has quietly
had feelings for Viktor for some time and also feels a
growing attachment for Diamond. They may have different
reasons but Viktor, Diamond and Ranier all need each other.
Taking a chance on heartbreak or becoming part of a whole is
the decision that must be made.
Third in an exciting futuristic tale,
Black Star Diamond is a terrific addition.
This story is strong enough to stand alone but some
character development and references to previous exploits
makes me wish that I had read the other books. Author,
Markeeta Karland, gives readers a future kind
of swashbuckling pirate story, with lots of alpha characters
hiding tender hearts. I enjoyed the fast pace, scorching
sexual interludes and the overall entertaining style found
in Black Star Diamond.
