A cold hearted alien... scorching hot chemistry... and a fated mate bond too strong to be denied!

There's nothing left in Raze. No love, no hate, nothing except the duty that he owes his people. But when he meets a fascinating and tough human woman on a barren planet something deep inside comes back to life and for the first time in years he yearns for more.

When a mission for the Sol Intelligence Agency gets out of hand, Sierra will need to use every skill she has and work with a mysterious alien warrior who awakens an unquenchable desire within her. He’s cold and forbidding, but when he looks at her there’s a fire in his eyes that opens up a whole world of possibilities.

The chemistry between Raze and Sierra is too hot to ignore, even if it should be impossible for a mate bond to form between them. But if Raze's emotions fully return before he claims his denya, he might end up dead for good. There is no fighting destiny, especially for a doomed Detyen, and Raze already cheated fate once. To be with Sierra he'll have to do it again, or neither of them will make it out alive.

The Detyen Warriors series brings you kick butt heroines, alpha alien heroes, fated mates, and relationships strong enough to span the galaxy!


Was she flirting with him? The emotionless alien who was happy to kidnap her until she suggested a better plan? 24% Soulless

Soulless is book one in the Detyen Warriors series by Kate Rudolph & Starr Huntress. There’s action, suspense, and intense moments.

Sierra is resourceful and intelligent. She accepts that Raze is her mate without much fuss. 

Raze is a Detyen who has given up his soul, is cold, and sees the world only in black and white. 

It’s a fated-mate storyline. Raze and Sierra were a great couple. You can’t help but feel for Raze and his situation, in being forced to give up his soul, in order to live and fight for his society. It was so interesting watching him come back to life. 

The author does a great job peeking your interest into the Detyen race. What we learn about their home world and that they must renounce their souls to survive, if they haven’t found their soul mate, leading to the soulless aspect in the story. 

I wasn’t happy with the secondary characters aka the other woman who criticized the Detyen Warriors. I get having bad things happen to you, but that is no excuse to act in a bad way. 

The story does end with a clear setup for book 2, so it’s kinda a cliffhanger leaving use with a few unanswered questions, but the romance is concluded.

All and all Soulless was nice introduction to the series and it peeked my interest into the Detyen race though it’s not that memorable of a story. I may or may not continue the Detyen Warriors series.  

Rated: 3 Stars
