    One thought on “Kithra”

    1. This was an interesting read and I enjoyed it. Probably closer to 3-1/2 stars, but I rounded up. Glad it was picked as a group read or I might have missed it. I don't really "do" sci-fi unless it's recommended. I liked how Lux and Kol sort of had this underlying sexual tension before anything started. I applaud Lux's willpower to avoid entanglements with her crew, and I think it was a brilliant move for Kol to make sure they were no longer captain/subordinate before this trip began. The addition [...]

    2. I don't know why I think I don't like sci-fi. Maybe it's because I have a picture in my head of what sci-fi readers look like or act like (and that's definitely not me). Maybe it's because all the new terms and phrases that I can't pronounce. But then I often surprise myself when I read sci-fi and really like it.That's what happened with this book. It was just the right amount of world building for me with some new terms and phrases that I found I understood easily without getting frustrated. Th [...]

    3. Kithra is a great little sci-fi read. And while I could have used a bit more information about Lux's background, the amount that we get about Kol and Egan is just the right amount to keep us wanting more. The sexual tension is great, and the sex is excellent as well. But the real gem of this book is the world building. The details are vivid and unique, and the "feel" of the world is very real and tactile.This is the first of a three book series, and I will definitely be reading the remainder bas [...]

    4. This is a Science Fiction romance with heart. Yes, there is steamy sex, a feisty heroine, two sexy heroes, alien technology and a very, very large bed. However, there is also a touching story of three people who are afraid to love again. This is a story of forgiveness, acceptance, and compassion. I hope Dani Worth continues to share her words in this genre. I truly enjoyed Kithra and look forward to her next story.

    5. I really loved Dani Worth's post-apocalyptic series "After the Crux" so I figured I would give this a try. I'm really glad I did, this book was awesome but left me wanting more.The premise is pretty cool and involves lots of sci-fi goodness like flying a ship through dangerous atmospheres, a health scare with some deadly gas and trying to re-establish living environments on a destroyed planet.Lux and Kol are human and the sexual chemistry is just heating up when Egan (a Gwinarian) joins their mi [...]

    6. Kithra is a great start to The Kithran Regenesis series by Dani Worth.Dani will be giving away of copy of KITHRA at Guilty Pleasures on 11/30/11To see my full review visitguiltypleasuresbookreviews

    7. Kithra is a bittersweet story about three people trying to find their way in a world that has been destroyed.Lux and Kol have worked together on the same ship for years. Lux is the captain and Kol is her second in command. Because Lux refuses to sleep with anyone of a lesser rank, Kol has kept his desire for her banked. Now that he’s been promoted, all bets are off.Kol and Lux are reassigned to get the mines up and running on Kithra. Kithra was destroyed years ago in an explosion and has been [...]

    8. Two men and one woman on a planet for a year alone, what could possibly happen? SEX SEX SEX! Well, okay, a little sex. This is a promising new author for me. Ms. Worth is writing in a genre I very much enjoy. There is menage and it's sci-fi/fantasy. Delicious! This story is more a 3.5 star, however I truncate on GR so it is at a 3 star.The world building in this story is light. It's a federation type universe with different aliens as well as humans. The alien in question is a male Gwinarian. Gwi [...]

    9. This is a erotic science fiction romance author to me. She is a wonderful find. The romance, world, and plot were all very good. I would have given it more stars if it were longer. Some books are perfect small bites. This story could have been deepened with more time for the romance and action. I really liked each character and liked them together. More time would have made the love story simply more. This being said, the book was still very enjoyable with emotional sex, complex characters, and [...]

    10. An interesting premise that lacked the time and depth needed to be fully realized. The plot existed just enough for the sex scenes to happen, but the story could have been so much better if the author had spent a little more time in the development, both with the world and the characters.

    11. I really liked this. Very hot and also very sweet. I loved that it was about a triad, so awesome! I would have loved for it to be longer but I'll take what I can get it was really good.

    12. Devouring this series! Enjoying it so so much. This book is the first in the series and is a novella. I think the story would have fit novel length beautifully, but we can't have EVERYTHING.

    13. Read this for GR Science Fiction & Fantasy Week .This is a new to me author & Dani IMO did a great job with the limited amount of pages. The world building was interesting, I liked the couple & was highly entertained. I look forward to following this series. A great short story 4 starsMMF

    14. A certain piece of writing advice received years ago: Can the story work without the sci-fi/fantasy setting? Then don't bother making it sci-fi/fantasy. Those weren't the exact words used, but it pretty much sums up my beefs with this novella.-If setting a story in the far-future, with different planets and whatnot, DON'T make a contemporary pop culture reference. (In this case, Lex Luthor.)-Heroine doesn't do exclusive relationships? She's in romance fiction; of course she does.-If your story i [...]

    15. Lynelle ReviewedKithra I thought was a great start to the series and thought it was easy to follow with being sci-fi (which I find at times can get confusing due to terminology, etc) and I just couldn’t help but feel for each of these 3 main characters. The story begins with Lux Moyans, Captain of the ship, being informed by Kol Frega, second-in-command, that they have been reassigned to a new mission, to go to Kirtha, an inhabitable planet with deadly gases. Right from the beginning the spark [...]

    16. Kithra is a little different from the usual stuff I read. It’s sci fi romance, my new favourite subgenre, but it’s also erotic romance, which is not what I usually go for. I’m all about story and not so much about reading the sexy times, but I really enjoyed Kithra. There’s a lot of sex, for sure, but the characters and world are well developed and it’s not a novella that exists purely to go from sex to sex to menage-with-an-alien scene. There’s actually a lot of cool story in Kithra [...]

    17. A short but good one, the first in Dani Worth’s Kithra Regenesis series is a scifi, m/m/f with all the right things to make it a fun read. This is my first by this author and the other stories in the series have already been added to my TBR list. The world building is one of my favorite things, good imagery, and I can’t leave out the dialogue, clever. Pilot Lux Moyans doesn’t do relationships and she certainly doesn’t do two guys in her bed. Along with her second in command, Kol Frega, L [...]

    19. I love sci-fi romance. Love them. We have the start of a really intriguing series here. The planet Kithra has been essentially destroyed by a series of mysterious explosions that has basically killed the vast majority of the Kithran's on planet (only a handful on planet survived) and left the planet isolated and inhabitable. I'm looking forward to future books exploring the origins of these mysterious explosions. I have my own theories so we'll see how those jib with the upcoming books. Access t [...]

    20. Lux Moyans, Kol Frega & Egan Lothbrun4 starsRead May 2014I liked the start to this erotic sci-fi series. It was short, but I did feel the connection between all three people. I will continue with series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~A frustrated spaceship captain, her trusty second-in- command, and a handsome alien prove that three is definitely not a crowd.The Kithran Regenesis, Book 1Spaceship captain Lux Moyans is currently piloting missions for The Company.

    21. The story: the blurb says it all. Despite the shortness of the story, the world building and character’s backgrounds are, though not fully, pretty well-drawn. Still, it is like a chamber drama, with only three characters, and very limited scenery. I would love to read more about the fantasy world, and to know more about the personalities of the characters. The first person point-of-view of Lux also narrows the possibility to be engaged with the male characters. Though Lux, Kol, and Egan are eq [...]

    22. Short and sweet, scifi romance about three people who are afraid to love and how they overcome. I was totally into Kol and Lux's story, and then Egan showed up and I was thrilled with the possibilities to come. But then the majority of the feelings seemed to shift to Kol and Egan. For me, it felt like Lux was an afterthought to Kol until he and Egan accepted each other again.Not to say I didn't enjoy the story, I just felt a little jumbled emotionally in the middle. But, hot damn, don't I wish I [...]

    23. Fun, sweet short story. A bit too short. The first-person narration was ok, didn't bother me too much, but I do feel like I didn't get much of an insight into the characters. The sex wasn't really that hot, and there were moments where I was convinced they wouldn't end up together, because tbh the bond the men shared together was much stronger than they shared with her.

    24. I enjoyed this menage. I thought Lux gave up her "I don't do exclusives" mantra a little quicklybut then again this is a short book. I have to say I preferred Book 2, which I read immediately after this book.

    25. I got this book based on all the favorable reviews. I don't get it. What book were you guys reading?I have so seldom NOT finished a book. I made it to the fight between E & K before bailing. It just didn't hook me. Boring. And where's all the hot sex people have been talking about? The sex I read was fairly lackluster. (Yawn)It did help me get to sleep on several occasions though

    26. I was in the mood for some SF romance, so grabbed this one. It's so-so. I liked some parts of it and others I felt were glossed over too much. I think I'll read more of the series, though, to see how things go.

    27. 4.5 rounded down for too short. It's hard to build a world, develop characters and provide good sexy scenes in any length novel, but a short one is even trickier. Despite that the author pulled it off convincingly enough that I'm hooked and looking for more.

    28. This was pretty good for such a short book. I found myself really wishing it had been longer so we could have gotten a little more development, but I really liked it. Will definitely pick up the next in series.
