About this ebook

When a space journalist crashes into a deadly intra-colony war, her hunt for the truth will either save her life or sentence her to death…

 

Starship journalist Yumi Minamoto's hot temper makes turning around her poor reputation an impossible challenge. While on a mission with her brother Shintaro to investigate a neighboring colony, her vessel comes under vicious attack, leaving her bleeding and disoriented. During the battle, Yumi's boss hands off a data device with secret, valuable information inside, just before her escape pod slams into a nearby moon.

 

Clinging to life and desperate to find her brother, Yumi and her fellow survivors emerge into an alien civil war with unknown agendas and honor codes. Navigating their differences is treacherous, and everything becomes more complicated when one of the natives takes a keen interest in her that Yumi can’t say no to. As she's captured and used as a pawn in negotiations, the journalist has a hunch something on the device could help her and the crew… if only it hadn't gone missing during the crash.


Can Yumi use her truth-seeking skills to ally with the right side and recover the data before her life is torn apart in a battle for planetary supremacy?


Crash Land on Kurai is the first book in the fast-paced Hikoboshi Space Opera Romance Series. If you like high-tech futures, ancient Japanese honor codes, and character-driven action, then you’ll love S. J. Pajonas’ thrilling sci-fi adventure romance.


Note: THIS SERIES MUST BE READ IN ORDER. It is a true series and plot elements carry through every book, from beginning to end. You will miss too much by reading this series out of order or skipping around. This series contains a slow-burn romance, profanity, and sexual situations.

Was not exciting enough for me! Not everyone is a technophobe so didn't understand everything.
