Synopsis: 1600 years ago, Jordan was the sole survivor of a ruthless Tribe attack which annihilated his world. To stop the Tribes deadly galactic conquest from continuing, he followed the Tribes to Earth, assumed the name Merlin and assisted King Arthur and his Knights to save Earth. When Arthur died, Camelot fell and Jordan lost his Ancient Staff. Now, over 1000 years later, the Tribes are back and so is Jordan. He's recovered his Ancient Staff and is again on the trail of the Holy Grail to save Earth and protect the galaxy.

Vivianne Blackstone is a lady with her own agenda. An American businesswoman, self-made billionaire and a fighter from the get-go, she's confident, capable and a definite type A personality. One of Earth's brightest and most loyal citizens, she vows to do her part to save the planet when she learns the Tribes are on the move again.

Jordan and Vivianne team up to save Earth and along the way they fall in love. But according to galactic legend, there's only 1 way to defeat the Tribes: Uniting the Ancient Staff with the Holy Grail. There's only one catch, Jordan cannot live without the Ancient Staff. To defeat the Tribes and save Earth, he must perish.

Isalys's Review:
Vivianne is a self-made woman. Having lost her parents at a young age and being left to fend for herself, she's dedicated her life to being independent and running her own successful business, Vesta Corportation. Her latest project, Draco, is a highly sophisticated spaceship that she intends to use to help save Earth from being taken over by the evil Tribes.

Jordan has lived for a very long time and most of that time was spent searching for the ancient staff that was taken away from him over 1,000 years ago. Using Rion & Marisa's help [in book # 2], he was finally able to recover it and is finally ready to put the Tribes to rest by uniting the Staff with the Holy Grail. He is fated to die once the Staff and Grail are united. However, he's accepted his fate if it means ridding the world of The Tribe. The hard part really will now be finding the Holy Grail.

Jordan then falsified a resume to get hired by Vesta Corp so that he can work on the Draco and use it to search for the Holy Grail. As you can imagine, Vivianne was none-too-pleased when she realized that Jordan's resume was a fake and even more irate when he used the staff to power the ship and launch them into space with only an amateur crew on board.

Their search for the Holy Grail takes them on a fantastic journey through space and several visits to foreign planets. Meanwhile, they're learning to cope with being stuck in space with no notion of where they are or where to go, an insatiable lust that seems to grip them an the most inopportune times and an amateur crew that's not prepared for any sort of real danger.

I'm going to be perfectly honest and say that I had a little bit of trouble digesting these books only for the sci-fi aspect of it. However, if I can read about hottie vamps, yummy weres and tortured demons - then there's no reason I can't read about sexy aliens! Vivianne was my kind of gal. She was smart, sassy and feisty. Jordan was sarcastic, focused and ooh la la, sexy. Together, they were intense...and creative.

Susan Kearney does a great job of making this futuristic romance fun to read. She gives you a thorough plot and sees it through to the end. The storyline is as believable as a good author can make it - it does make you wonder though if someday space travel will be so feasible. I enjoyed these books more than I initially expected and will say that Jordan concluded the story nicely. I give it ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
