I have held all RH space romances to the high standards of Venomous, by Penelope Fletcher. She wrote an amazing universe with interesting aliens and an amusingly (and eventually) brave heroine. I have found an author to rival her. Jade Waltz has created the beginnings of an awesome world. The Ulax- who are aquatic, the Wurdox- who have flora characteristics (but not like Groot, whew), the Aldwani- who are feline like, and others. There's bioluminescence, fins, claws, fur, moss, fangs, horns, ... a little bit of everything. Selena is tough but not brittle. Her dreamscape male kept her grounded the last 9 years which allows her the ability to trust and form bonds. Her pregnancy may scare her but she doesn't let it slow her down. She wants to learn, she wants to embrace her new life and shed her past. Xylo is so sweet, he's very much the studious scholar but no pushover. He is her rock. Odelm is sensitive from a severing. Relationships are a unit, a Nestqueen and multiple Nestmates. Female births are rare, so relationships reflect that. Court bonds are offered to males to test compatibility, think of more like fiancee than getting-to-know-you dating. Severing is when those bonds are cut and the males rejected. After being burned, Odelm is understandably shy and wary. When a human(ish) female approaches him for friendship he puts up walls. The medicals are too funny. They have no idea how to treat a human. Obviously, physiology is different, so their medicines don't work. And her being pregnant means they can't do trial and error testing. So, that whole labor and delivery thing is not looking so fun without drugs. Not even a Tylenol. And apparently the fact that her DNA has been altered to absorb other genetics means that the end of her pregnancy is coming up fast since his species gestates in @50 days. Yay! Whew, there was a lot packed into this book. I haven't touched on all of it, I've left plenty of surprises yet to be found out. It's very much worth a read through.
The alien races are described in such a way that it isn't hard to find the beauty in them even though they're far from "human." Selena's honest appreciation of her guys goes a long way, and it's also a critical character trait of hers, as we see how she's drawn to the unique or typically unloved, since she feels an immediate connection due to a similar experience.
The first relationship happens pretty dang fast, but it's at least acknowledged and the slower cementing of the relationship helps to balance the shotgun nature.
The only true conflict in this first installment is interpersonal, so I did feel there was a lack of action. The next book seems ripe for more physical action, though, so I'm not too put out about it.
There were enough missing or extra words that it feels like another pass through the editor (or at least proofreader) was needed, so I hope the next one is a bit better edited.
All in all, a very interesting and singular series and world so far, and I look forward to the next adventure.
