So, Nicole and K are taking us back into space so that we can visit the morts again and see what they’ve been up to in The Lonely Orphan.
If you remember in the last book, we discovered that there were human women in a prison on another part of the planet. Not only were there human women, there were human women who were related to some of our ladies. So, off go a couple of morts to rescue sisters and daughters. But of course, it’s never that easy and there are going to be more problems than Hadrian planned.
So, here’s how this story goes. We have Hadrian, who is the youngest of the morts, raised by Breccan to be a leader, and who is madly in love with Aria, who is mated to Breccan. And Hadrian had been able to almost deal with that, right up until two morts mated with one woman. Now he’s having a hard time with it. He figures that Aria can choose to have him as a mate too. So, he’s willing to do anything that she wants, including going to rescue her sister Lyric and bringing her back to their facility.
Lyric has done everything she can to get to her sister, including taking over a prison, and getting rid of the guards, or at least putting them in the deepest, darkest hole in the prison she can find, and then pulling the hole closed over them. Now that she has a base on this planet, she’s going to do what she can to find Aria. So, when communication is opened up and two aliens tell her and the other women in the command center that they are going to kidnap the women, she knows that she’s not going to go easy. She wants her sister, and no weird looking alien is going to stop her from getting to her.
Hadrian calls Lyric a feral woman, and she really is. She’s a fierce leader, she’s determined, she’s not going to take no for an answer, and she’s going to do what she needs to do, no matter what. Hadrian really didn’t know what he got himself into when he started talking to her. He thought it was going to be a walk in the park and he was so cocky. Whoopsie. She really proved to him that maybe he shouldn’t oughta underestimate human women. I mean, Aria is no pushover, but I really think that Lyric is much stronger and fiercer than her sister is, and a better leader.
Hadrian really matures during this book. He started out really cocky, but as the events in the book went on, he really came into his own. He really stood up and learned something and proved something. I think he should really be proud of himself for what he did. I also think that Breccan should really be proud of him.
I really like this world, and I’m looking forward to seeing what is going to happen next.
There is one thing that was mentioned early in the book. When the guys contact the ladies, one of them says something about oh look, more monsters. So, I wanna know what’s going on there. Plus, there’s a missing woman and child, sooo…
OK, that’s all for today! If you love a good scifi romance, this is worth it. Happy reading!
