Aubrey’s father always said he was too smart for his own good. A tech engineer caught by the enemy and turned into a weapon, Aubrey never thought he would escape. Given the choice to return to them or die, Aubrey would choose death any day. Fortunately, he ends up in the hands of Deshryt Seht, blood prince of Skeldhor.

Seht sees Aubrey and something compels him to save the young man, the enemy of his enemy is his friend. However, the rescue is short lived when Seht discovers Aubrey is dying. Now Aubrey must make a choice, live or die, but he has no idea of what he will endure if he decides to have Seht save him for a second time.

Interstellar Service & Discipline: Lost Star is the prequel to Victorious Star. Aubrey seemed to go from the frying pan and into the fire. His enemy used him and then the one man he thought he could trust threw him into some similar situations he was trying to escape. While I understand that Seht cared about Aubrey and had no true way of warning him of what his “cure” would entail, I couldn’t help not liking him very much at some points of the story. Watching Aubrey mature seemed to sooth that feeling. There is an abundance of erotic encounters that enhance instead of overshadow the plot. Interstellar Service & Discipline: Lost Star is a fast-paced read that had my emotions on a rollercoaster ride. I would recommend those who enjoy intergalactic male-male romance and space battles or for fans of the Interstellar Service & Discipline series to gain understanding on how Aubrey came to be. Pick up a copy, you won’t be disappointed!
