A desire for status has brought Ondry and Liam to a human world to trade, but dealing with humans has brought up all the old pain in Liam’s heart. Even though Ondry would do anything to protect his beloved palteia, he doesn’t know how to protect Liam from himself. Worse, Ondry isn’t sure how to shield Liam from the shifting politics on the Rownt ship where the Calti Grandmothers are nothing like the ones they left behind on the planet.
With everything in their lives changing, Ondry and Liam have only each other. If Ondry can’t find a way to defend Liam from the ghosts of the past and overcome the impossibly short life span of a human, their small family might be over long before either of them is ready to let go. Ondry has always been a dominant and possessive Rownt, and with Liam in danger, those traits are necessary as he challenges the world to protect his lover.
God, I love this series!
In this installment Liam and Ondry move to the Calti, a Rownt ship. They are asked to help in trade with humans. But Ondry is afraid how this will affect Liam. Liam is hesitant himself, since he doesn’t have the best experiences with the human race. He’d rather stay with Ondry and the Rownt and not deal with humans at all..
I can’t seem to get enough of Ondry and Liam. Ondry would do anything for Liam, even give up his rank, which is most important for Rownt. And Liam loves Ondry with all his heart. This relationship is so loving, I want to read at least 10 more books about them.
I admire the way Lyn Gala has created an entirely new species, with all the differences or similarities in humans and Rownt. I love the Rownt. I especially love the way they see their palteia, as someone to be cherished and honored.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand…. we finally got the kissing!
It was so worth the wait.
Such a great series. I hope Lyn Gala is not finished with Ondry and Liam yet.
