Spindrift Gifts is a sequel to The Klockwerk Kraken, the story of how space pilot Jimenez and bartender Teo met and fell in love. We follow these two completely adorable characters to Teo’s home planet of Celos in Spindrift Gifts, where Jimenez, who was once a slave, undergoes a kind of medical deprogramming.

We meet Teo’s family, all of whom are loving, strong-minded, constantly up in your business, and have tentacles. One of Aidee Ladnier’s strengths is how she integrates alien qualities into a character without making him or her seem all that alien. This is a good thing. There are wonderful descriptions of how the Celosians are different from humans, and the tentacles are just one aspect. The communal nature of their living style sets Jimenez on edge at times, but part of his journey is to accept the love of his new partner and family, and that is delicately demonstrated by positive details such as how most rooms in their home do not have doors (so there’s always a smiling face in view), and how the family love-bombs Jimenez by including him in their yearly “Spindrift gifts” celebration. The family seems almost unrealistically supportive at times -- not only in their acceptance of Teo’s same-sex partner, but in all their other interactions too. It’s a powerful contrast to Jimenez’s fear-based life before Teo, and that contrast comes to life in ways large and small throughout the story.

The big plot is Jimenez’s struggle to overcome his conditioning – the mental or psychological structure of slavery. That involves a lot of doctor-y and science-y treatment, and a lot of traumatic, visceral time in Jimenez’s head as he relives his past.

SPINDRIFT GIFTS is an excellent sequel to the previous book, THE KLOCKWERK KRAKEN. Aidee Ladnier's stunning ability to communicate very complex emotional dynamics and challenges faced by both Teo and Jimenez as Jimenez begins his difficult journey into treatment for his condition made every page vividly real to me. It was cool to learn more about Celosian culture, and the lore is woven into the fabric of the story in a natural, beautifully measured way. If Aidee writes more about Teo, Jimenez and their shared lives, I am so there!

Painful slave programming implanted during his infancy is now intruding on Jimenez’s health and happiness.

The Spindrift Gifts is the sequel to The Klockwerk Kraken. In this installment, Teo and Jimenez have returned to Teo’s home planet Celos, a planet renowned for their advanced medical treatments. However, Jimenez’s treatments are not progressing well until he discovers a Celos tradition designed to preserve memories.

The background of Teo and Jimenez are featured in The Klockwerk Kraken. A former way station bar owner, Teo Houdin distills rare quality alcoholic beverages, has six arms, and a charismatic personality.

Jimenez is currently a licensed space pilot with a compassionate nature. The tattoos from his past are actually implanted arousal sensors.

Aidee Ladnier has created a poignant as well as an enjoyable love saga. The true message of The Spindrift Gifts is that memories are precious along with the link that holds families together.
