    2. I really loved this character driven sci fi story It had the perfect blend of action, intrigue, romance, humour, and cool sci fi technology It also really helped that I found Michelle Diener s writing to be quite engaging and that I was interested in the plot and emotionally engaged with the likeable characters.It was the books blurb that drew me to this one Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she s made a powerful ally a fellow prisoner with whom she s formed a strong bond [...]

    3. What an unexpected gem I thought this would be the usual alien abduction book, but I was very pleasantly surprised Rose and Dav were wonderful, but my favorit was Sazo LOLWho wouldn t like such an AI I m sure I would He was such an endearing and at the same time very dangerous being Rose was great too A level headed heroine with really clear and clever ideas I very much appreciated her honesty and her reasoning with Sazo She didn t do TSTL things and she was very, very clever Dav was great too A [...]

    4. Dark Horse was a book that simply wouldn t let me work on anything else It got its talons in me and wouldn t let go until I had finished it Science fiction romance is a new genre for me, but I have had so much fun writing about alien abduction, artificial intelligence and life on the other side of the galaxy in Dark Horse, I m definitely going to do it again.As a huge fan of the original and the new Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars and Star Trek, as well as new science fiction movies like Serenit [...]

    5. My criteria for a five star book is simple if I can t wait to re read it again immediately after finishing it and I can t stop thinking about the storyline and characters then it gets five stars from me.Dark Horse gets an enthusiastic 5 star stamp from me because I have not stopped thinking about the nuances characters since I finished it The author tied in music in an extremely clever way, and now all of my favorite songs cause me to wonderI will try to give a thorough plot summation tomorrow [...]

    6. There were a lot of things to like about this book Rose was a great heroine, sassy and a fighter I loved that when she made a promise she kept to it no matter what And Dav was quite sexy, especially his ears I loved all the difference species, all from different worlds It was very interesting learning how they differed from each other The plot was very interesting, especially with all the intrigue regarding Sazo and Rose, why they were captured and who was trying to kill them My favorite part of [...]

    8. YOU GUYS I HAVE BEEN IN SUCH A SLUMP LATELY Or rather, not in a SLUMP as much as I get so into my own projects currently juggling 3 4 5 something like that that there is literally no room in my head for other people s stories But I saw my boo Jane Litte recommend this and I love me some Sci Fi Romance, so I gave it a spin The story wasn t perfect but it was a lot of fun.So basically the heroine is captured from earth by the bad guys and experimented on She meets this thinking AI who helps her ge [...]

    9. Starting Dark Horse I was excited to read it but I was also a little worried I wasn t going to like it as much as the author s other titles because, although I love science fiction, I haven t actually read many books in the genre But I should ve known not to worry because this is Michelle Diener we re talking about and I ended up absolutely loving this book This book is mainly about Rose McKenzie, a human from earth who gets abducted by aliens and taken captive for three months until she escapes [...]

    10. Loved it A great read well written, smooth flowing and action packed It kept my rapt attention throughout and it was refreshingly different unpredictable Captain Dav Jallan is determined to find who killed the entire crew of a Class 5 battleship, especially when the sole survivor is an Earth woman, a prisoner, who seems innocent and relatively harmless Rose is a Dark Horse, the unknown variable in a problem He does not know that Rose has found a very powerful ally, a fellow prisoner, Sazo, who i [...]

    11. I have had this book laying around for months, the idea of it just did not sound interesting add this to that list of Stupid Things Doug Has Done This may have been one of the best things I have read in months, I have read a lot of great books over the last 12 months but I can safely say this one gets into the Top 10.It is a story of a very odd friendship, a touch and go romance which in the action, strategy and mystery type plot might have been a bit weak but overall it was a story I could hard [...]

    12. Nicely done sci fi romance The sci fi element was very strong here The romance was sweet and understated This was a SFR which wasn t just an excuse for some sex scenes The world building was strong.with believable tech and well thought out history The plotting made sense and moved right along There were quite a few interesting secondary characters The main character was believable as a woman snatched from Earth Like all good sci fi the book asked some hard questions In this case about artificial [...]

    14. 3.75 Wellis was a pleasant surprise I enjoyed it quite a bit There was action and thought provoking moral dilemmas Music plays a unique and surprisingly important role in the alien s society and in the overall story of DH I thought it was very imaginative view spoiler Especially with the bit of the twist near the end involving Sazo s awakening and Rose s capture hide spoiler DH was about Rose and Sazo and what it means to be an intelligent sentient being and what rights that should garner Both R [...]

    15. 4 stars Good sci fi and good character development Very enjoyable.It got a little slow in the middle, but most was good and the end was cool I loved Rose s intelligence and loyalty There is a little romantic relationship development, and a good romantic ending.Rose had been a prisoner in a Tecran star ship for three months Sazo is the artificial intelligence thinking system that runs the ship Sazo figures out a way to communicate with Rose and helps her escape He tells her how to free him from T [...]

    17. DNF, not liking the writing style, there just seems to be a lot of information dumping through the dialogue, hardly much narrative something which always gives me a headache Especially when there are so many characters all at once as I feel here there arejust not for me, I guess.

    21. The first time I read this, I stayed up until 3am before accepting that I needed to stop reading and actually get some sleep.The second time around, I stayed up until 6am before crashing and spent most of the morning drooling on my Kindle and dreaming about being an AI in outerspace Woke up and immediately finished reading.I FUCKING LOVE THIS BOOK.

    22. Dark Horse tries to do three different things but fails to do any of them well It tries to be a sci fi romance, an alien abduction story, and a space opera all in one Throw in a slow pace and an underwhelming protagonist and you get a book that just doesn t deliver much on the interesting premise.Rose McKenzie finds herself prisoner on an alien warship after being abducted from Earth With the help of a self aware AI, she breaks free of her prison and lands on a remote planet waiting for a nearby [...]

    24. 4.5 5Dark Horse was delightful Like a mild, less insane version of Touchstone trilogy by Andrea K H st or Last Hour of Gann by R.Lee Smith The main kick of it all was that Rose McKenzie absolutely kicked ass as a heroine.In fact, strong female heroines who keep their heads in very tense, stressful situations, who can do some quick creative thinking on the go are a trademark of Michelle s writing If you want a heroine who will save the day sign up for her book be it fairy tale fantasy, historical [...]

    25. Dark Horse is a sci fi book by author Michelle Diener This to me wasn t really a romance story at all like I thought it was going to be, it was along the lines of a sci fi adventure maybe The book revolves around Thinking machine Sazo From what I gathered he IS the class 5 battleship He just woke up and is curious about things around him Rose the heroine of the book, shes an abducted victim on the ship becomes Sazos friend and helps him to break free of his cage and starts to think on his own a [...]

    27. Wow, stop everything and read this book If you like sci fi and a strong female character with some space travel and some AI in the mix this is the book for you.Great start to a series, I loved it It is an easy 4.5 but as I can t give it 4.5 I will give it 5 I love the situation, the characters, and interactions between the different species and between the AI s I will for sure continue with the series and hope the second book is as good If it is as good, I would be totally justified in leaving t [...]

    28. This is Michelle Diener s first Science Fiction Romance book There is a check list of things I look for in a good SFR book and Diener has checked them all off.First there is the story line I always want to know if it can survive if the romance is removed In Dark Horse it is certainly strong enough to stand on its own The romance just adds to the tension and the action in the storyWorld building and back story are always important Getting them into the story can be tricky The way the plot develop [...]
