Book Of The Month

Shoot The Messenger(Messenger Chronicles#1) By Pippa DaCosta

“A new space fantasy reverse harem series where the guys are hot, the perils are many, and one rebel messenger holds the key to the survival of the human race.’’

I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. It was pretty awesome! I loved the non-stop action, adventure, mystery, magic, and light romance. The world building is fascinating and I quite enjoyed the fae in the space concept. It was really a great read. I recently finished the second book and I loved it too. I highly recommend this series. It’s a slow burn reverse harem series, the harem develops during the series.

BLURB: “Lies aren’t her only weapons against the fae…”

In the Halow system, one of Earth’s three sister star systems, tek and magic—humans and the fae—are at war.

Kesh Lasota is a ghost in the machine. Invisible to tek, she’s hired by the criminal underworld to carry illegal messages through the Halow system. But when one of those messages kills its recipient, Kesh finds herself on the run with a bounty on her head and a quick-witted marshal on her tail.

Proving her innocence should be straightforward—until a warfae steals the evidence she needs. The fae haven’t been seen in Halow in over a thousand years. And this one—a brutally efficient killer able to wield tek—should not exist. But neither should Kesh.

As Kesh’s carefully crafted lie of a life crumbles around her, she knows remaining invisible is no longer an option. To hunt the fae, to stop him from destroying a thousand-year-long fragile peace, she must resurrect the horrors of her past.

Kesh Lasota was a ghost. Now she’s back, and there’s only one thing she knows for certain. Nobody shoots the messenger and gets away with it.


Thank you for reading and Let’s Chat! ❤
