This is actually my third time reading Alpha Trine and it was just as good this time as the first! If you read the free version, it is worth it to read this one as it has an updated first chapter!

From the Publisher:
The sole survivor on a science vessel adrift in deep space, Zeus was adopted by the Emperor and Empress of the Mar’Sani, though he is both human and blind, and seen by most as unfit to join the royal family. Though they were able to repair his vision, Zeus does not trust his eyes and the nobles of his parents’ court refuse to ever trust a frail human.
Dargon Kal-Turak, along with his symbiote and lover Alpha, command one of the most dangerous ships in the stars. Narrowly escaping a trap, they dock in a space port to make repairs, but find that the Psionics hunting them are closing in fast. In desperation they kidnap the port Master Mechanic, unaware that the man they’ve brought on board is more than he seems, and will bring far more upheaval to their ship, their lives, and the stars than any of them could have imagined.
I grew up reading science fiction, fantasy and romance novels. They were never all in the same book however, which is why I love Alpha Trine. It combined all the things I adored from my favourite genres and put them all together. Alpha Trine has spaceships and technology; it has mystical races and journeys that need to be taken; it has love and devotion.
The world building was vast and we are introduced to a myriad of characters and species of aliens, all with colourful descriptions, that brought this book to vivid life. The story itself was well paced and action packed; it was hard to put down.
While this is the first in the series and focuses more on Zeus and his life, we also see some of Dargon and Alpha’s relationship as well. I loved how the three came together and I was glad that even though the story arc was left incomplete, the relationship between the three of them wasn’t left as a big cliffhanger. There is definitely reason to read the next book, but I wasn’t left feeling bereft. Alpha Trine is definitely on my Favourites Shelf!
