The Alien's Mail-Order Bride by Ruby Dixon Review
The Alien's Mail-Order Bride: A Sci-Fi Alien Romance Novella - Ruby Dixon

Though still carrying the scars of his past as an intergalactic soldier, Emvor doesn’t mind the quiet of his chosen life as a farmer. He doesn’t even mind that most nights are lonely on remote Cassa, but he does need help around his farm. A mail-order bride from his homeworld seems like the perfect solution. She’ll be a tall, sturdy female to help with the chores and bear his children.

Unfortunately, the person that arrives is Nicola. She’s small, delicate…and human. She also knows nothing about farming, and she's lied and deceived her way across the galaxy to get to Cassa so she can hide from those that would capture her. She's a problem, and also the most enticing thing he's ever seen.

Now Emvor has to decide…can he keep the woman who’s nothing like what he asked for but is everything he needs?

 

Review


A pretty run of the mill mail order space bride with super nice characters but a little stretch for the conflict.

 

A quick read.

Kozav found his mate and then he lost her. Now it’s time to hunt…

 

Grace Hall is a nurse, not a doctor. But when five Preor warriors are brought to the emergency room and the doctors don’t do a darn thing for them, she steps forward. Sure, they are aliens with massive wings who turn into dragons whenever they wish, but they still look human-ish. One particular warrior draws her more than the others. His teal wings, muscular body, and pain-glazed eyes have her bouncing between two desires—needing his touch and desperation to heal him. When she’s filled with the knowledge to treat the males, Grace gets to work. She’s going to save the Preor males, even if it kills her. When she loses consciousness after healing them, she realizes it just might.

 

Kozav sen Aghin, Primary Warrior of the Preor Third Fleet, wakes weaker than a hatchling on the Preor battleship. He’s fully healed yet plagued by a feeling that something is wrong. And something is… Kozav found his mate on Earth and she was left behind—alone and unprotected. Unacceptable. Kozav still carries the guilt for his actions during the great conflict and he is determined not to fail so greatly again. The curvaceous, green-eyed, dark haired human female is his to protect, his to claim and his to keep.

 

When danger intrudes and someone attempts to take Grace from his life, Kozav is prepared to do whatever it takes to bring Grace back to his side. Even if it means killing one of his own. Or will it be Kozav with a sword through his chest? For Grace’s sake, he hopes not.

The Preor Warriors have arrived on Earth (dragon shifters), but not everyone is happy to have them their even some of the Preor don’t want to be their.

 

Grace is a nurse, overworked, and underpaid. She’s stubborn, cares about her mom, and is doing everything to keep her and her mother together. Kozav is a Preor Warrior.

 

Grace was easy to like and relate too. She’s kind and devoted to her sick mother. Kozav is slighty clueless when it comes to human females, but he tries. These two where a great couple. I like that they took time to know each other and didn’t give into the insta-lust/love. Their romance is budding and growing without being forced. Their’s also a little action to keep things entertaining.

 

I’m enjoying the Dragons of Preor series. They may be short and quick, but they pack a lot into them.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

All Systems Red and Gotham: Dawn of Darkness were full price, but the Wonder Woman novelization was one dollar, the Alien book was two - and has some Ash, and I love this author - and Power Rangers 18 was two dollars, as BOOM! comics are half off after they're out in the world for a month. 

 

For $16 and change, that was a good haul.

I would call this a fun, laugh out loud kind of Space Opera.  A character-driven story with fantastically sapient-diverse characters, which is why I was reminded of Guardians of the Galaxy.  With similar character descriptions and the life-affirming sentiments found in Avatar. Yes, there's swearing and sexual situations aplenty.  Which really just added to the quirkiness of this story.

 

My only issue may be with the narration because sometimes I was lost in regards to who the characters were and what was going on.  I think it may have been due to there not being a significant silence between scenes.  I'm certain there were whole scenes that I missed out on because I was just…lost.  I didn't always know whose head I was in, either.  It would have been beneficial to have a full-cast narration to differentiate the characters.  I believe it would have a made a huge difference.  Despite this, I still feel Rachel Dulude did a decent narration.

 

Will I continue this seriesYa know, I didn't know this at first, but the next two books are considered stand-alone just set in the same Universe…so yeah, I’m totally going to read (or listen to) them too.

Splinterpoint by Regina St. Claire
Splinterpoint - Regina St. Claire

This book is C-wA_A-a-Z-YY!

Feels like Times Square, honestly :D 

 

~~~

The sheer amount of cultural references is mind-boggling.
Praetor Judy made it into this book :)

 

 

 

And I kept comparing Kol'daar to Cass (no actual mention of Supernatural, darn it!) - a bad-ass when he wants to be, but cute and adorable and kind and sometimes clueless. 

 

 

Metaaaaaahlll!!!



Yes, Ozzy made it, too! And the Dove! 



And, damn, talking about Mr. Crowley on that album!



Anyway, the story was heading for full 11 stars when things started going south around the last 20%, or after the Final Battle to be precise. Maybe during it's final half-hour, too. That's when the author quit crazy and spontaneous, turned on a drone and started explaining and over-explaining and then ex-plai-ning-to-death and then some just to drive the final nail in. 

After the report filing at the gingerbread castle I skimmed through the rest of the pages. The story got sappy and it dragged out for more than it had to. 

In the end I was left feeling a bit unbalanced. The badassery turned to sap, the unpredictable and unexplained turned into dissecting everything under a microscope. I really didn't care about the Song or Music Magic or how Nunzio's disability worked.

 

 

ALSO - The Burrito Incident. Someone specifically targeted Nunzio. Why? Never explained.

So, I am cutting 6.5 stars off for all the un- and over-explained instances and giving this book 4.5 stars.

 

Recommended :D
