Our Romance Reading Virgin Teddy Pierson took a look at Michelle Diener’s novel Dark Horse (Class 5 Series) back in June 2016. Now that the three book, award winning series is complete, we thought it’d be fun to do a retrospective look on the entire series. I live, breathe, and write science fiction romance all day, every day, so I can’t capture Teddy’s wide-eyed approach to the books, but I will tell you this is one of my favorite and most recommended SFR series.
Warning: There will be spoilers!
The three books are Dark Horse, Dark Deeds and Dark Minds and there’s much solid science fiction story telling involved.
Each book features a plucky, smart human woman who’s been abducted from Earth by an alien race in direct contravention of the interstellar treaties on such things and finds herself in a dire situation as a result. Each woman forms a bond with a different Artificial Intelligence (the Class 5 of the series title) and their alliance drives and informs the resulting stories, as well as the larger series arc.
