REVIEW BY MERISSA - Alien Indiscretions (World of Kalquor #9) by Tracy St. John
Alien Indiscretions (World of Kalquor #9) - Tracy St. John

Alien Indiscretions is the ninth book in the Worlds of Kalquor series. I have read some of these before, but not all of them. I would recommend you read the series though, as previous characters and relationships are mentioned.

 

Crissy and Tasha are Jessica's cousins, and have made their way to Kalquor to start a new life, one where they can be with whomever they wish. Crissy takes an instant dislike to one of the councillors, but is more than happy to push them onto her twin. Of course, that doesn't happen, and Crissy and the Kalquorians need to figure a lot of things out whilst they still have the chance.

 

This is definitely a case of those that know, see a different person, because at first glance Crissy is uncouth, brash, and downright rude at times. However, those that know her, love her. And there is enough about her to catch the interest of two out of the three Kalquorians.

 

This story has a lot of backstory to it, with an overall story arc playing a BIG part of this story. For that reason, I would definitely recommend reading some of the others before this one. It was all well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing is smooth, and there are plenty of sexy scenes for your titillation.

 

If you have read any of these books before, then I can absolutely recommend it. If you haven't, then I still recommend it, but would suggest you start the series properly first.

Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts (Claimings, #1) by Lyn Gala 4 Star Review!
Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts - Lyn Gala

Liam loves his life as a linguist and trader on the Rownt homeworld, but he has ignored his heart and sexual needs for years. After escaping the horrors of war, he wants a boring life. He won't risk letting anyone come too close because he won't risk letting anyone see his deeply submissive nature. For him, submission comes with pain. Life burned that lesson into his soul from a young age.

This fear keeps him from noticing that the Rownt trader Ondry cares for him. Ondry may not understand humans, but he recognizes a wounded soul, and his need to protect Liam is quickly outpacing his common sense. They may have laws, culture, and incompatible genitalia in their way, but Ondry knows that he can find a way to overcome all that if he can just overcome the ghosts of Liam's past. Only then can he take possession of a man he has grown to respect.

 

Review

 

This book has been recommended a lot but I wasn't sure. However, I read it and really liked it,.

The world and culture building are very good. Liam is a wounded, smart, and wonderful hero. Ondry turns out to be pretty amazing as well.

The details of Liam's submissive nature woven in with the culture of this alien world are well done and engaging.

Even though they have very different bodies, our heroes are able to connect in all sorts of powerful ways. 

The plot is good and the love story a slow burn that is worth the wait. And yes, there is tail sex but really if you had a tail???

I am sad that the next books in the series stay with this same couple. I like to leave them fully happy and would love to see another couple but this is a good book and I really enjoyed it.

In Pain and Blood (Spellster #1) by Aldrea Alien
In Pain and Blood - Aldrea Alien

In Pain and Blood is the first book in the Spellster series, and has all the hallmarks of everything I enjoy - epic fantasy, m/m, romance, action, and adventure. Dylan has spent his life in 'the Tower' learning how to be a spellster. Magic comes easily to him, but his guardian keeps on telling him to stay safe in the tower, and not to make waves. However, one event shoves him to the forefront, and he sees more of life than he expected. Trying to make his way back to the Tower, he becomes part of a ragtag group and sees life in a completely different way.

 

This should have been a good book. I really wanted it to be a good book, but it fell short for me on a number of different levels. First of all, it's long. And I mean REALLY long. Now don't get me wrong, I love epic fantasy, and regularly read books of a thick volume. However, for this book, it felt like it needed some serious editing to get some of the monotonous repetition removed. Also, this land is supposed to be under attack, but they manage to completely miss any and every member of either army on their two month trek across the land - which we hear about in great detail. How this book started actually had me going back to check on the blurb as I thought I was reading a completely different book. It does change and become the story the blurb describes, but only after a long start. It is only the two main characters who we really meet, and I wouldn't say I 'know' them very well. Even their companions, who they spend so much time with, aren't really fleshed out. It didn't help when one of the main characters spoke to everyone as 'my dear hunter/my dear warrior/my dear spellster'. I know this was supposed to be one of his quirks, but I got it after the first dozen times. It really didn't need repeating multiple times on every page. The ending, such as it was, is the only thing in the book that felt rushed. Big events happen, something life-changing happens to a supporting character, opinions change, a lifetime's enduring love is pronounced, and it happens at the speed of light.

 

I struggled to finish this book. It was only my sheer stubborn nature and optimistic belief that it would get better (and if I finished it before it ended, I would never know) that kept me turning the pages to the very end. I am glad I've read it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Reading progress update: I've read 90%.

What is up with everyone not liking androids? The medics and scientists even admit you cannot tell the difference in an artificial person and a human unless you do body scans. Maybe I'm prejudiced because I totally had a crush on Bishop from Aliens and David from Covenant. Mostly Bishop. I think the David thing is mostly just liking Fassbender.

Book 2: Nightmare Asylum 4 stars

 

There's always the one human who thinks aliens would make great weapons. And he usually ends up splattered all over a wall.
