I try not to give spoilers so it makes this review hard to write. Bear with me.
After it gets going a bit, you get the story from the kidnappers and the victims point of view but a very overall description of the imperial clan's reaction to their 3 yr old daughter being taken. There was a lot of overview of how the kingdom was affected in general but, it was missing the details that I feel it should have touched on regarding the imperial clan.
There was a scene in which the empress breaks down completely in a moment of sharing with another matara (don't want to give too much away). That was so well written. As a mother I could almost feel her gut wrenching pain at someone taking her child. After that's where it started to go downhill.
The Dramok of the clan that ends up aiding Tasha is a jackass in my opinion. He didn't give off that dramok type personality at all to me. Then the sex scenes. I'm not into all the BDSM crap. If you are, you'll love this book. I like a little dominance but this book takes it to a WHOLE new level. It was just really creepy and overdone to me. I ended up skipping through the last couple of sex scenes. I can suffer through most of those scenes with a few eye rolls but, this book took it to a whole new level. And why do we get books where the men fall in love with each other but when they find their mataras suddenly they are more like co-workers? A little tenderness, or kissing shouldn't offend the naysayers too much. Anyway.....
Their time in hiding was just looooong and drawn out. That part of the story was weak and didn't make sense to me. They last part of the book picked up again for a bit. Then once again, it let me down.
A specific telling of the rescue of the princess and reunion with her parents was non-existent. Really? I wanted to read of the emotional reunion between parents and child. To read of their gratefulness to the surprising person who made it happen. NOT. That was the ONLY reason I kept reading the book to the end and felt duped. Instead, it was basically a general overview of the kingdom and what happened with loose ends.
Don't know that I'll be buying anymore of this series. Very disappointing.
The book felt like a novella compared to her other books. It was quite short. The main characters were underdeveloped. Out of all the kalquorian males she has written about the 3 presented had the weakest personalities. Why would Falinset continue living next door to his biological father? Why would Wekniz, as a Nobel male, allow his clan to be threatened by Maf? Would Maf get the message Falinset didn't want anything to do with him by now? And Felom, the pickiest female alive, chose to sleep with and have a child by the physically imperfect Maf? What happened to Tasha's desire to be a sustainable architect? And nobody in the entire Kalquorian empire, which keeps decreasing year by year, that Maf is the Basma by now? And really, the kalquorian males have earth females with uteruses. Can't a brilliant evil scientist figure how to gene splice kalquorian embryos, cure the genetic defect and force the earth women to become surrogates to carry the next generation of kalquorians. That is a far more despicable plan than letting the kalquorian empire die and turn to dust.
Of course we aren't really reading these books for the story plots, but there were a lot of holes in the story. I was far more intrigued by the sex scene in chapter one and those characters, than Clan Falinset. That's who I wanted to see the story about. The sex scenes were rather hum drum, not as exciting or kinky as in other books.
Tracy take your time writing the books. I would rather wait for a well written book rather getting something sooner.
I've read other "alien menage" series and I have to say that this series is as good (or better) as any out there. This author's writing is easy to read and emotional in impact. The stories are extremely erotic MFMM and MMM is hinted at but not described in any sort of detail. This is all about the woman and she is most definitely one very lucky lady. The matara of a clan is treated with respect and desire. The men in the clan know that she is the key to the future of their people since there are few females on their planet able to give birth.
If you are new to this genre, give it a try if you are tempted by the subject matter. If it offends you, move onto something else. If you enjoy this series half as much as me, you'll have found your new best read.
