Doorway To The Stars by Marly Mathews

4 Stars...

Earth, 3000 AD.
After finding herself on the losing side of a tragic civil war that has plunged the Earth back into a time that most sane people would never want to repeat. Freya a former rebel, finds that the only job left open to her is that of a tour guide. While leading a tour on the colony Willowbane Freya is kidnapped by the warrior Aries who is planning an overthrow of Earth's government in retaliation for their insidious attack on his people several years ago...

I found Doorway To The Stars to be a fascinating and thought provoking story that will linger in your mind long after the story is finished. In fact I think that this story could probably use a sequel! The characters are extremely likable, the world building is very interesting, and the chemistry between the two main characters, Aries and Freya is scorching hot...

Freya Kirkland is a veteran of the last great war that was waged across Earth and its many planets that it has colonized. The new government has been in power for ten years now, and Freya is still struggling to come to terms with the strange new world Earth has become. Thrust back into an archaic age where slavery and other barbaric practices are now in use, she must fight just to get through another day.

Rumors of Outlanders that have infiltrated the star traveling system start to run rampant throughout Earth's many media outlets. Knowing that she must continue her job as a tour guide, she knowingly places herself in danger just so she can continue to earn her much needed paycheck. Her world is turned upside down when she meets Gaian Warrior, Aries D'Halen. Will their love be able to mend a broken world and lead her people and his people into a bright future for all?
