Sheleigh O’Brien is an anthropologist for
Unified Sentient Planets. USP tries to bring equality and
protection to all the planets that choose to be a part of
their organization. She is passionate about her work and just
wants to help the people of Avera. During her research, she
has gotten quite friendly with the ruler’s son, Kleet.
Kleet Kryszan is the eldest son of the
ruler of Avera and one day he will rule. Kleet feels that he
has to keep Avera’s secrets safe and not let the outside world
know what makes them so special. He has been fascinated with
Sheleigh since her arrival. He finally convinces her to go
out with him and he has something very special planned. It
will change everything for them.
Sheleigh cannot believe how attracted she
is to Kleet. She has never felt this way before and she is
even more shocked by the consequences of this attraction.
Kleet mates with Sheleigh on their night together and claims
her as his life mate. He feels instant love for Sheleigh, but
she is struggling with her feelings and how quickly and
drastically everything has changed. Unrest and rebellion are
plaguing Avera and one act changes everything for Kleet and
Sheleigh. Will their fledgling love be enough to overcome the
challenges that not only they face but also the entire planet?
Mating Flight was a
touching and emotional story. Sheleigh is a woman who
believes strongly in her convictions and she wants to see
peace and equality come to Avera. Kleet is strong and feels
he must protect his planet and his people at all costs even if
it means keeping his and his people’s secrets. Shay Lacy
writes with feeling and I was rooting for Kleet and Sheleigh
to find a balance to their relationship and the world around
them. I struggled with Mating Flight in the
beginning, but I am glad that I stayed with it.
