It was refreshing to read a book with a strong woman who was not a young twenty-something as the protagonist. She is not perfect. Unflawed characters are not particularly interesting. She has been through a form of hell, but hasn’t lost her feminine vanity and modesty. She couldn’t have been rescued by a better colony of outer space society, which depends on strong women with the power to protect males, presumably females as well, but it seemed the males were the ones who were vulnerable.

A Good Start to a Sci-Fi Series

Sometimes big and bold looking Sci-Fi books take forever to get into it. There isn’t just character building, a lot of times there is also "other" character building (the alien life), ship, planet, solar system, and world building too. A lot of times the first book really is an intro to this world and can be hard to read. But, we’re in luck with The Matriarch Saved — Olmos wrote a book that was able to grab my attention right away and then explain itself so that I

A perfect blend of romance and science fiction

You cannot help being drawn into Yvonne's struggle to overcome the loss of her family, abduction by slave traders, and the bizarre twists and turns of an exotic alien culture. Her characterization is fresh and alive, the love story intricate and complex, and the politics all too believable. The chapter on partial bonding with no less than four men is a highlight not to be missed.

Wow, just wow!

I had the pleasure of meeting the author recently and we discussed the love of reading. I typically read mysteries, but was intrigued with the genre of sci -fi romance. I was started the book on Monday and finished Wednesday. I love the flow of the book, the character development, and the ability to "see" each setting. J.Y. is able to describe the strengths of the male characters and the heroine with ease and fluidity. I am eager to continue the series.
