Laura Benedict's Bio
Sean had to choose, so he chose to go with the goddess of Fate, Death, and Battle. Steven Whipp, a normal, poor college student, is kissed and shot on the night of his 20th birthday. But the attempts on his life are just the beginning of his troubles. Steven is a Dragonsoul - a magical race of beings who have thrived, hidden from the eyes of humans, in control of the world. And not just any Dragonsoul but the last in a long line of Arch-Sorcerers, thought long dead.
Terrence Mack was born poor, grew up tough, and died hard. Waking up in a sea cave with nothing but the clothes on his back and a new bullet scar was enough to convince him that wherever his death had brought him, it wasn't paradise. His new world quickly proves to be a place of danger, magic, monsters, and - for Terry at least - women. Known on Celestine as a template, Terry's genes are key to the survival of the eldritch races. But the fiercely competitive eldritch don't typically leave their lovers alive long, and aren't accustomed to taking 'no' for an answer.
It did not sit well with him. He had never exactly been a good guy, but everyone had their breaking point, and he had found his. The bastards in charge had uploaded his mind into a virtual death game. The whole world could now pay to see him play it and probably die. Regardless, he was not about to wait for death to come for him. Quinn doesn't have much to his name but a broken-down old freighter; even keeping it fueled is a constant struggle on the edges of civilized space where jobs are scarce and honest ones non-existent.
With the death of the Emperor civilized space begins to dissolve into squabbling factions fighting for control and beautiful new passengers aboard Quinn's ship all bring their own load of problems and opportunities. The Centauri Bliss has a new home on the edges of civilized space, eking out a living even as in the core the Imperium devolves quickly towards a civil war. When a job goes bad Quinn must work to keep his family same as dangers mount, even as an ancient magical threat is unleashed.
While working to stay alive and to keep the ship flying the Centauri continues to try to find a balance, and truly begins to discover its power with the combined set of talents each brings. Warning: This book has explicit sex, nudity, murder, and a lot of crime. There is a harem, a hot alien, a cheerful robot, a kick-ass lawyer, a xeno-archaeologist in a snazzy hat. It's space fantasy and space opera, with a healthy dose of magic, and hard science doesn't apply - and a galactic threat is rising. The space opera action is good, and the story interesting.
I enjoyed the book enough to want to find out what happens next and I will gladly pick up the next chapters when they come out. Be aware that this books contains several fairly graphic sex scenes, something I always find a little awkward to listen to - though the narrator did a good job with them. I had two negatives. The first is the harem male fantasy written into the book - all the female characters are very attractive and want to have sex with the main male character, and each-other - everything gets very Heinlein-esque. However, most of the female characters have at least as much depth as the male character, they are skilled, and they don't need constant rescuing at least no more than the male character.
So overall, the good far outweighed the bad and awkward for me. The book immediately reminded me of the tv series "Firefly". The same type of people on the border of decent and criminal, daring plans and constantly on the run. The book reads as a number of episodes loosely connected with an underlying theme. I cannot wait for the next books in the series.
I'm stopping now because although I enjoy romance novels and some "harem" arrangement stories I've enjoyed, this reads more like a Mormon or Islamic marriage situation to me. I need comedy to enjoy reading about such arrangements, which isn't employed here. Excellent voice acting great range and diversity of tone for characters.

Story makes use of many tropes. The narrator gives some of the female characters voices that sound like men but I really enjoyed the story. I have over audiobooks under my belt. Only reason I purchased this book was my wish list is thin and I love Sci Fi, that said I really enjoyed the story, I found it fun!

Eights words remaining. Sometimes the book just doesn't make a big enough impact to justify the maximum word requirements. Ok story, ok plot. There is a lot of nods to series and characters I love. This book is very cool and I'm excited to see what happens next for all of them. Get a free audiobook. Centauri Bliss: Publisher's Pack. Written by: Skyler Grant.
