It's really good, although the kidnapping thing is a bit disturbing.
Well, it wasn't bad. Blue giants were sweet, their human mates were a bit too... permissive? They were like children, everybody else made decisions for them. They weren't even angry about being kidnapped. They were very zen about it: "Apparently fate decided that I was to be mated to an alien from outer space."
All this plot and treason (Remember, remember the 5th of November!) was pretty obvious and not very developed. And I had a feeling that Kenano's and Jared's story were not well balanced. I...more
Less DNF than couldn't finish. I've only tried one Sage Whistler book before - Broken, which I read on my twincest rampage - and it was so boring I had to skim something like 150 pages out of 120. Tried this one since I'm on an alien rampage atm and it's just as bad.

10% in and I don't care about anything and everything. There's all these history that tells you about the MCs' life from conception to present day before I even know, or give a shit about them.

The descriptions reads like a Wikipedia...more
I enjoyed this one very much. Wonderful writing, interesting plot, and the characters were delightful. I not only liked the main couple, but the other two pairings as well. And who can resist strong, gentle, 8-foot tall, blue-skinned, blue-haired aliens searching for their mates?

A lot of the alien words were kind of strange and jarring, but there were also quite a few wonderful, laugh-out-loud moments. The plot and world-building could have been fleshed out some more, and it all ended with an bi...more
I really liked the premise of this book. I think there were a lot of really interesting things happening, and I was pleased with the world building and characterization throughout.

I was a bit confused, however, by the fact that Jared is the first character introduced in the book, even though I would consider him to be a supporting character, as he quickly falls aside as the story progresses. I was disappointed that he did not play a larger role. Also, I feel that he was forgotten at the end and...more

I would have rated this higher but I was a little disappointed in the ending, it just felt like there was issues left unfinished. What happens to Jared and Tom?
3,5 stars. The ending was disappointing because I loved Jared the most and seing there won´t (probably) be second book means he won´t have his ending at all.

Just a comment about the blurb...
I think it should probably be "war ravaged" and not "ravished." Just sayin'...

A great novel; I love how the aliens were portrayed, both personality-wise and species-wise, and the chapter-openers from Safera's journal fit very well with each section. I have to admit when I first read the summary, I wasn't expecting it to focus so clearly on multiple couples. Although the primary pairing is of Kenano and Nurak - the first to be matched, and the only 'completed' pair focused on, as Kenano had the ukaii placed and functional before the others - there is also a threading of at...more
Well, I really really wanted to like this book. Hell I did. Still, there were too many things I wanted to know, things happening that were just mentioned or not even mentioned at all. And the ending... well.


It all felt like a first draft. Unfinished. There was just so much unexploited potential.


Next book perhaps?

Yowza!! I can not wait until the author comes out with the next in this series. Hot,hot,hot men-- super sexy space travel stuff, and technologically advanced BDSM applications!?! What's not to like?
Despite loads of unnecessary sci fi names for all sorts of odd things, I really liked the book. It had a great premise and was super entertaining.

Not to impressed with this. I found it messy and I didn't like the constant shift in PoV, but that could be just because of my preference :)
I have to say i was a little disappointed in the ending, it just felt like there was issues left untied. Overall not a bad read though.
A good story involving a bunch of hunky blue-skinned aliens. I was a bit dissapointed at the end though, on Jared's benefit.
It was so good it ended too soon. I want more. I want sequel.
So my only complain is that it was too short :-)
I loved this book, but i really wanted to hear more of phirst dawa and jared's story.
Good, but the ending was really dissapointing.it should have focused on just one couple.
Sandy Nguyen
I'm really looking forward to the sequel(s) of this book
3 stars
Jared and Dawa need their story!
I am definitely going to watch for a sequel.
