I received an ARC of this book and I'm voluntarily leaving my honest review. I also bought it because I loved it so much.
Lena and her roommate of 3 months, Isabelle, were out in the woods as well. They heard and felt the loud boom inside the compound. Then ear-splitting screeches started! The two human women ran down the path to escape. Isabelle was erroneously running toward the awful sounds and, as Lena tried to grab her to turn her away, one of the ghostly Novai jumped on her and knocked her to the ground. She fought and Isabelle kicked the creature in the side. Before the Novai could leap on her again, Khrel arrived and wounded it.
As they headed out to return the Novai to camp, it turned and leaped at Lena yet again! Khrel fired his weapon and was forced to kill it. They headed to the Capitol to report to Elder Savani and Khrel carried the body over his shoulder. The decision was made for Khrel to take Lena to his home to protect her. It was imperative that she survive to testify to the events of her being attacked like that. The Novai could not be allowed to stay if they had begun to attack defenseless humans.
Much to Khrel’s discomfort, the Elder decided that, until she could testify to the Council, Lena must be protected – in Khrel’s home, with him as constant bodyguard. But with Isabella not being protected, Lena escaped and tried to get back to her. However, she was captured and taken into the Novai compound, and locked in a cage! There was fresh blood on the floor of the adjoining cage and Lena saw no evidence of who had been there or what had happened while she was unconscious! The Novai were savagely shrieking and wildly dancing around a huge bonfire! Would Khrel be able to find Lena with no clues as to what way she had gone? Would the Novai sacrifice or kill her?
This was a well written story. The description of the land and environment was so vividly drawn that the reader actually felt they were standing there observing it firsthand. The characters were excellently portrayed, giving insight into their personality, strengths, and weaknesses. The story line was good, leaving the readers unsure of where it would take them. I definitely recommend this addition to the Albaterra series. Well done, and worth reading!
Science fiction is an acquired taste – and that taste seems to have infused the entire globe as books and television shows and games and movies all fight for top place in this genre. Ashley has her hand solidly in this realm, having published four series of books that deal with aliens peppered with erotica. She continues her new series – ALBATERRA MATES – and presents KHREL as the fifth episode in the series.
Ashley knows how to launch a series about life on another planet that includes a visit from an earthborn creature whose presence creates the change in atmosphere the new planet poses) the new planet is of course Albaterra). She opens the stage for her main characters with some preparatory background so that when the new soon to be lovers meet we are aware of what they bring to the encounter.
The synopsis is concise but a fine map as to where the story will take us, ‘There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his kingdom…except lose her. Lena is a life coach who has dedicated her career to helping others find their purpose. After realizing she had lost her own path somewhere along the way, she made the journey from Earth to Albaterra in the hopes of finding her calling. When three months on the alien planet pass and she is no closer to the self-actualization she needs, however, Lena begins to feel like a fraud. Khrel is a no-nonsense War Chief in the swamp kingdom of Pentaba, and he knows exactly what he wants. His life is a tribute to his Elder and his people, and he is willing to compromise everything for the Council. Until he meets Lena. She is able to burrow past his hardened exterior and see him for his deepest self unlike anyone else has before, and his unwavering alpha demeanor is thrown into question as he finds himself craving to know her and lusting after her voluptuous figure. The Council has permitted a camp of Novai to settle in Pentaba, but Khrel discovers it might be his undoing when one night leads to desperate acts of violence. He rescues Lena from a rogue Novai colonist, but in saving her life he realizes he may lose his. Lena is forced into isolation under Khrel’s watchful eye for her protection and hatches a plan to escape and reunite with her only friend. When her plot puts her in jeopardy again, it is up to Khrel to protect her, but at what cost? Lena soon learns the lengths the muscular A’li-uud will go to for her safety, and Khrel is faced with a possible future in which everything he’s worked for is destroyed. Is there any chance Lena and Khrel can have it all, including each other?’
Few authors can match Ashley’s manipulation of alien romance with the sophistication she manages to mold her worlds and strange exotic creatures. Steamy, yes, erotic, yes, but always original and with a fine ending. Grady Harp, July 17
