Sara's Review: Undying (Valos of Sonhadra #7) by Tiffany Roberts
APC PUBLISHER: Tiffany Roberts RELEASED: February 11, 2018 GENRE: sci-fi, fantasy LENGTH: 164 pages FORMAT: ebook
BRINGER OF DEATH…
Orishok is the last of his kind — a valo shaped by the Creators to embody death. He’s stood vigil over his people for centuries, watching them fade away, one by one succumbing to the entropic energies they hold inside. With his slightest touch unwillingly bringing death to all living things, he has remained isolated in his people’s city, his heart as empty as the buildings around him…until a pale, slight female arrives and shakes the foundations of his world.
GIVER OF LIFE…
Quinn Dalton lost everything when she was convicted of murder — her sister, her niece, her budding career — but it isn’t until she’s transferred to an interstellar penitentiary that she realizes her very life is no longer her own. Her existence aboard the Concord is a nightmare, broken only when the station is torn through a wormhole and crash lands on an alien world. After waking up alone and bloodied, but somehow unharmed, she seeks shelter in an abandoned city — where she discovers an ancient, wondrous mystery. Can she survive alongside a being whose touch means death? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily received a copy of Undying in exchange for an honest review. Once again I didn’t read the blurb from Tiffany Roberts because I will read anything from this duo of authors. But I did understand that this is part of a bigger series that a whole slew of authors are contributing too. Not going to lie, I want to read them all! The basic premise behind the series is a prison ship crashes on a primitive planet, and the female survivors are found by the Valos. Who at least in book 7, are stone-like man/creature who can morph into an incredible scary creature covered in a spiked armor exoskeleton. Once again in Undying, Tiffany Roberts has a way of bringing such depth and realism to their characters that as I got to know them, they became almost real. Quinn has a resilience, such a kind heart that It was hard not to fall in love with her. Orishok is the ultimate protector. He is tasked with watching over his people, but when Quinn comes, he finds a new purpose in life. Their story was heartfelt and once again proves that love knows no bounds. The only issue I had with the entire thing was I wanted more of the backstory on the state of the Valos and the crash; perhaps I will get it in the other books? Which I will be reading! Undying (Valos of Sonhadra #7) is receiving 5 Boundless stars, I loved it and can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I love my alien books!
