This is the first book I've read by Regine Abel, and will be reading more. I found this story to be charmingly sweet, even though the characters were altered and subjected to things against their will. I found myself smiling quite a few times whilst reading. The ending, was perfect. A wonderful book in an awesome collaboration with some remarkable authors. ...more

Okay. So I love sci-fi romance. And I love when we get new takes on my favorite scenarios (a character being marooned on a planet and forced to use their wits and skills to survive is HIIIIGH on my list of faves). And I love romances that step outside the boundaries of a more traditional pairing (Lydia and Kai finding a way to be together despite their differences THRILLED me!).

Basically, I'm saying this book hit all my hot buttons. Romance on a distant world between two beings who are VERY diff
What a cute and funny sci fi romance between an alien and a black woman !

I'm closer to get more interested into space travels right now, and I'm closer to get another book from Regine Abel.

Diversity, yay! I am tired of reading about the same type of women over and over as if they're the only ones that exist. The story may be fiction but the readers are not. It's only fair to your readers buying your books.
So thank you to Regine Abel for making me feel included.
3.5 Stars This book like the first in the series really stands out. The heroine is so resilient and the heroes value here. We have good world building and bravery

Good stuff. Pick up this series, you will enjoy it.
One if my favorites in this series. Well written and funny. Good world building. I liked both of the main characters. The ending is sweet.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the world building was good without being to intense for the length of the book. The budding relationship was great and I’m glad that there isn’t an tension in it. The tension lies in trying to get the home world back up and running and that keeps the book interesting. It’s not quite as built up as it could have been, but I felt for the length of the book that it was appropriate. I do wish we had got to meet the little one in the end, but perhaps that might ...more

That’s about average for me for this series, but I’m glad I finished it.

No review, it didn’t excite or infuriate me enough. It was pretty meh in general.

Stop making me fall in love with hunky sweet aliens!! This book was amazing and the intricate world building combined with an engaging plot was fantastic. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I adored Lydia and Kai, and loved every moment of them exploring his world and getting closer to each other.

3.5 Stars

The Valos of Sonhadra series is a Sci-Fi alien romance with each of the 9 books in the series being told by a different author. If you have a favourite author of the bunch and don't want to read them all don't worry, each book can be read as a standalone. The background story for each book is the same, the heroine for nefarious and various reasons has been locked away in a prison ship and being experimented on by scientists. The experimentation changes each of the heroines in some way,

Five stars for the cover. Hoping this is an #ownvoices author though not deal-breaker.

I absolutely loved “Unfrozen” with its unique characters, creatures and world building.
This book is absolutely hilarious and super cute.
Told in a fast pace, Unfrozen is rich with events, funny dialogues and vivid images, that I couldn’t put it down. From the first pages I got hooked on Lydia, and couldn’t stop wondering what would happen to her next.
There were so many moments where I died laughing, that I can’t even count them all.
This read is totally recommended! Cute, funny, magical and ful
This book was such a sweet treat of a surprise. I’ve been in the mood for SciFi romance lately and this is one I picked up on a whim and decided to give it a read.

Lydia is our heroine. She’s been unjustly imprisoned and is on a prison ship where she’s been undergoing painful and horrendous experiments. Her chance for escape comes when the ship crashes onto a strange planet. She makes her way to beautiful yet frozen planet. Because the experiments she’s been subjected to alter her body temperatur

Oh My Gods, what a book! This my first book in the series, but it will not be my last. This Story by Regine Abel is absolutely so well written and thought out. It had a wonderful flow to it so much so that I just could not put the book down.
This is Lydia and Kai’s story. Lydia is so interesting she is amazing. Her body temperature variations are what helped her escape a deadly virus on earth, but it had another effect. The one thing that saved her life could be the thing that kills her too. As i

Lydia and Kai warmed my heart!
Lydia is quite an interesting character. Her innate body-temperature variations helped her escape a deadly virus on earth and made her highly desirable for experimentation on the prison ship. She faced many dangers during her escape from the crash site. Those now enhanced abilities got her safely to the frozen city of E’lek. What a fascinating city it is! Kai, the only being still awake in the city, is curious about this new creature who has some features similar to

This is the ninth book in a series called Valos of Sonhadra, which is a collection of 9 books from 9 different authors. I haven’t read the others but I am so glad I have found Unfrozen. This is a paranormal and sci-fi book that starts with a prison for women from Earth that's​ been sent to space.

Our main character is named Lydia, who is one of the prisons that are being experimented on by scientists. At a random point, the prison enters a wormhole and crashes on an unknown planet. The story real

I had a great time....

Had a great time,not as much fun as the Veredian series but I’m glad I read it...
nothing new to add here really, sorry...
I just want Ms. Able to know she’s appreciated...
Liked the addition of the pet,wish we were going to see other Vados in Lydia’s world find a mate and deep sigh ,that the h wasn’t always soo young ...
I mean when it’s sci-fi or paranormal there’s NO reason for the heroine to almost _always_ be either a teenager or be in her early 20’s, mean come on between

Kai is the only one awake when Lydia, a survivor of a space ship crash, finds his city and explores it. He is almost made of ice and she is human with unique abilities.

Kai and his people have been trapped in a soul-less existence, with many people succumbing to a fatal depression. Enter Lydia, whose arrival is the hope of his people.

As Lydia learns to control herself, she and Kai bond. Their bond will be tested as more of his people are awakened.

The romance was a slow build with Lydia and Kai.

How can it be over?! HOW?!!

I got started reading book three, and then I couldn't put them down. I have finished every. Single One. But now I'm wondering how I'm going to cope that I don't Valos of Sonhadra to read and dream about. The one thing I loved about this whole series the most was the selflessness of the main characters. They often pot themselves in harm's way, above and beyond what's reasonable, to help the Valos that helped them. Lydia was no different in this regard. She nearly killed

I have read the entire series and Unfrozen being the last book in the series did not disappoint. No worries if you haven’t read all of the books or you haven’t read them in order, they can each be read as a standalone.
Unfrozen gives us another mating between just two Lydia and Kai, which is a bit of an anomaly for this series most are a reverse harem. I found the story of Kai and Lydia to be incredibly sweet and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved Lydia’s bravery and courage she was one of t

The final book in the Valos of Sonhadra. Wonderful couple. Kai and Lydia were awesome together. Lydia was such a great heroine who truly loved from the bottom of her heart. Kai was fascinating and a great hero, who matched Lydia so well. The world building continued to be just as outstanding as all the other books. Everything just flowed so well together. This is the first time I have read a collaboration like this series and I highly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this book and this ser

My Favorite in the Series

I really liked this one. The h was brave but had limits to her gifts. The H is loving and supportive but never outshined h. I was also super touched at how the valos race came back to life. This story wasn’t just the survival of a couple/group but of the entire race. That was something that bothered me in past books. There’s no mystery to how the H/h’s community will grow. This story had me sad, happy, crying, touched, and cheering. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Feb 16, 2018 rated it it was amazing
This was such a sweet story. Lydia is such a strong person, mentally and physically. She risked herself to save an entire race of Valos just because she wanted to help. And Kai seemed soft at first, but his strength slowly came out to show what an amazing male he is. I loved the combination of ice and fire for the characters and how if affected them both as individuals and together. This was my first book by Regine Abel and I'm now a fan! ...more

I will read these books as many of the authors are favorites of mine. However this book's cover caught my attention and so I read it first. I enjoyed this book. Lydia showed great compassion for the people she would become a part of.

I have read and enjoyed all of the books of this series. These books are captivating and spell binding. Once you start reading you must continue to read until you have read all of them. I have even found myself dreaming about what I figured would happen next.
