Experiments.They alter me. And when the ship crashes on an alien planet, some of my new abilities come in quite handy—it’s the side effects that aren’t entirely welcome.
Not by me, anyway. The tribe of aliens that have taken me captive?They don’t seem to mind.The Valos of Sonhadra series is the shared vision of nine scifi and fantasy romance authors. Each book is a standalone with a guaranteed Happy Ever After and can be read in any order. 3.5 (FOUR) BOUNDLESS STARS
I had wanted to go back and start at the beginning of this series since I had been given an ARC of book 7. I finally got the chance. This story seemed a bit disjointed, and I felt like I was missing pieces of what was going on. I would go back and re-read, thinking I missed something, but realize that is just how it was written. It made it a bit confusing. I would have liked a longer story especially with more explanation on Petra’s super soldier powers. And what that means for her and her family now. Oh man, talk about a weird family. OMG, where ever did Milo come up with treeman sex? My eyes about popped out of my head. LOL Overall it was an interesting start to this series. Book two ties closely with book 1. I am not sure on the others Since they are all supposed to be a stand-alone. Alluvial has action, danger, and some freaky alien sex, that will leave you to wondering how in the world did Milo come up with that. LOL
