“Healing Mavito” by RK Munin is a captivating entry in the “Hissa Warrior” series, blending elements of sci-fi, romance, and adventure into a compelling narrative that explores themes of identity, power, and love. This fifth book introduces readers to Raleen Burden, a unique human with a mysterious past and an extraordinary gift, and Mavito, a Hissa warrior with a fierce protective streak. Together, they navigate a wondrous and perilous universe, seeking freedom and a place to belong.

Raleen’s journey from an enigmatic beginning to a woman on the run is both intriguing and heart-wrenching. Her ability to heal surpasses any advanced technology, making her a target for exploitation. Munin skillfully portrays Raleen’s resilience and determination to maintain her autonomy in the face of constant threat, creating a character that is easy to root for. Her discovery of her healing powers and the consequences it brings adds depth to the narrative, raising questions about the ethics of using such a gift and the lengths others will go to control it.


Mavito, the Hissa warrior, is equally compelling. His introduction as a wounded captive seeking to protect Raleen even in his weakened state speaks volumes about his character. Munin does an excellent job of exploring the Hissa culture through Mavito, presenting it as both alien and relatable. His unwavering loyalty and burgeoning affection for Raleen provide a solid foundation for their relationship, turning what could have been a simple escape narrative into a complex exploration of bonds formed under duress.

The chemistry between Raleen and Mavito is undeniable, evolving naturally from mutual respect and shared adversity into something deeper. Munin balances the romance with the broader story arc, ensuring that their developing relationship enhances rather than detracts from the action and suspense. The moments of tenderness between them serve as a counterpoint to the dangers they face, making their story not just about survival but about finding love in unexpected places.

The plot of “Healing Mavito” is well-crafted, with a mix of tense escape sequences, moments of introspection, and scenes that highlight the characters’ growing connection. Munin weaves a narrative that is both fast-paced and emotionally resonant, keeping readers engaged from start to finish. The world-building is impressive, expanding the universe of the “Hissa Warrior” series with new locations and challenges that feel both fresh and familiar.

“Healing Mavito” is a standout addition to the “Hissa Warrior” series, offering readers a story that is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining. RK Munin’s talent for creating multidimensional characters and immersive worlds shines through, making this book a must-read for fans of sci-fi alien romance. Whether you’re new to the series or a returning reader, Raleen and Mavito’s journey is one that will captivate, delight, and leave you eagerly awaiting the next installment.

Healing Mavito

Raleen spent her life running but then she shares a cell with Mavito, a Hissa warrior determined to protect her. This could be the end of her struggles and the beginning of a new era for both her and the Hissa.

Raleen Burden doesn’t know where she came from. Well, that’s not entirely true. She knows she’s Decanted, a made-to-order human grown in vats in the far-off Earth system. But she doesn’t know who bought her and why she ended up in a little traveled area of the universe floating in a life pod far from anything. No ship debris, no nearby station, no inhabited planet. Nothing but her as a baby housed in a cheap, short-range lifepod.

No one ever claimed her, so the kind Tavarian family who found her also adopted her. It wasn’t until she left the folds of her adopted family that she noticed something odd. Unlike other humans, she only has three fingers on her left hand, and they end in black, claw-like fingernails. She didn’t bother thinking much about that oddity until one day a sick child bumped into her at a busy space station. Giving in to an overwhelming urge, she sank those three claw-like fingernails into the child’s skin.

That’s when she discovered she can heal. Better than nano technology. Better than a medpod. Better than anything else out there. She can see right into a body and mend it. That first incident went unnoticed, but later instances got her attention she didn’t want. Forced to hide her gift, she works at menial jobs and keeps moving from place to place, always a step ahead of those looking to use her gift for their gain.

All that ends when she’s forced to heal someone in front of witnesses. Soon she finds herself held against her will and enduring whatever her captors’ demand. Then a battered and wounded Hissa named Mavito is dumped in her cell with her. They want the Hissa warrior to get her pregnant. But she has other ideas because she’s not going to let them kill this male once they’re done with him.

Little does she know that she gained not only an accomplice for escape, but a male determined to stay by her side even after they’re free. They might escape the facility trapping them, but Mavito has no interest in letting her escape him.
