Kyrus has never cared about life and death, he controls them. He's an Astral Mage, better known as a "Soul Giver", a race of people who can reattach life force energy back to its source. In other words, he brings the dead back to life.

For years the Confederated Authority, the governing body for planets, has been methodically hunting Astral Mages down and Kyrus is as pure as they've seen. So it becomes a huge risk when Tilbarr, the captain of the Wolf, brings Kyrus on board his ship.

Not that Tilbarr is afraid of the ConFed. Far from it. But the threat to Kyrus doesn't come from outside the Wolf and it isn't long before Tilbarr realizes he just may have to give up everything in order to save Kyrus: his ship, his crew, and even his life. All in all, not a bad trade off.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This is a re-edited, expanded re-release title.


The Astral Mage is the first book in the Captain's of the Wolf series by author Hurri Cosmo. This is a re released title. I had not read it the first time so for me this was a brand new story. I liked the connection the characters have. While Scifi is not usually my cup of tea, I loved how Ms. Cosmo made it so you do not have to be a huge Scifi fan to love this story. There is parts to both an erotic romance and Scifi and balanced enough that the love shines through keeping me reading and wanting more.
Kyrus is an Astral Mage. He can reattach life energy back to its source. Meaning he can bring you back from the dead. This power is feared by most making Kyrus someone no one wants around. He is used to being used and shunned. When we meet him he is being held prisoner to be sold off. That is until a certain pirate changes this lonely Mage's fate.
Tilbarr is the captain of the Wolf. He is a man usually in control of himself in and out of the bedroom. That is until he falls for Kyrus. Then he gets not only himself but his crew into trouble by keeping a wanted fugitive. Also he finds his heart at risk because he falls in love with him. I liked watching the tough pirate fall.
Over all this is a great read full of twists and turns. I love the fascinating world Ms.Cosmo has created and I cannot wait for a certain someone to fall in love and get his story next. I hope it is very very soon.
