    Description

    Ondry and Liam have settled into a good life, but their trading is still tied up with humans, and humans are always messy. When political changes at the human base lead Ondry to attempt a difficult trade, the pair find themselves entangled in human affairs. Liam wants to help the people he left and the worlds being torn apart. He also wants to serve Ondry with not only the pleasures of the nest but also by bringing human profits.

    Ondry has no hope of understanding human psychology in general, he only knows that he will hold onto his palteia with the last breath in his body, and he'd like to keep his status and his wealth too. Unfortunately, new humans bring new conflicts and he is not sure how to protect Liam. He does know one thing that humans seem to constantly forget - that the peaceful Rownt are predators and when their families are threatened, Rownt become deadly killers. Liam is his family, and Ondry will protect him with his last breath...assuming that he can recognize the dangers in time to do so. 

    Contains mature themes.

    A Great Series continues

    I have enjoyed this series first as an ebook and now in audio. I love how this series evolves across the books. In this one, we see Liam and Ondry interact more fully outside their relationship. The introduction of another human as a secondary character highlights how much Liam has grown. We see Liam confident in Ondry's love for him and how he is fitting in to his new life. Not everything goes smoothly, and there is some good tension/suspense in this book. Ondry remains steadfast and caring, and I love the protective streak we see in him. Ondry, and the whole Rownt culture, are very well-drawn.

    John Solo's narration is fantastic. The pacing and flow of the narration was excellent and his performance enhanced those tense scenes! His voice for Ondry conveys his otherness while still being thoroughly engaging and relatable. And he conveys Liam's growing self-assurance while still being vulnerable.

    I continue to be a fan of this series and look forward to next audio release!

    AH THOSE HUMANS!

    AH THOSE HUMANS! Getting aliens wrong every time!

    This was good! And such a simple story – basically, just a walk between villages, if you strip everything else away. And yet it paints a much more complete picture of a whole lot of things, some of which I didn’t even realize were missing from the first book. But more than that, I’m panting for more. I’m forcing myself to write this before I allow myself to even <i>open</i> the third book so I don’t get all ahead of myself like I did with the first book.

    There’s a lot about the budding relationship building in this book, but again, this is <b>not</b> a relationship like I’ve ever really … well, I can’t say “imagined”, because yes, I think I <i>have</i> imagined such a relationship before, maybe even dreamed of, but that was long ago. It’s certainly nothing I’ve ever <i>encountered</i> in the “real world”, let’s put it that way. Protection, security, commitment, bonding, companionship, true partnership, entrepreneurship (yeah, I know, right?), and yet it’s all kinda weird because one of them’s not human, which has all these really creative and clever differences compared with relationships between two humans.

    And speaking of humans! Yep, they’re in here too, marching with their big feet and getting it all wrong. The end surprised me but I LOVED it. You could possibly stop after the first book and say, “Nice story”, but don’t! At the end of the second one, there’s <i>no way</i> you’re going to miss out on the next one. I can’t wait!

    AUDIOBOOK VERSION: Again I have to say, as I did with the first book, really good narration! Audiobook versus “silent” book, which is better, is a debate that will endure to the end of mankind, with staunch supporters on both sides. But sometimes, and these books are an example, the narration really adds to the experience.

    I'm quickly becoming obsessed

    Ok, first, John Solo was perfectly cast for this series. His voice just has the right feel to it for both of these guys and he manages to put so much life into, especially Ondry's voice that I can see and hear the facial expressions that accompany them. He's really nailed this series so far and while I've enjoyed others he's done is the past, this is with out a doubt his best work so far.

    Second, Lyn has created such an alien and unique world that I'm not only blown away by her creativity and world building but also by her ability to bring me into it. It's captivating and while this story is a little more stressful than the previous one it never lost the sweeter elements that I loved from the first.

    Bring on the next book ASAP!

    Marvelous Series, Solo is Spectacular

    This is one of the most creative (and lovely) stories of D/s I've ever read. The insight Lyn Gala has in explaining Liam's mindset is absolutely beyond compare and it's incredibly moving. A beautiful series and I'm so glad it is out in audio! Reliving them all, narrated by John Solo, is incredible :)

    A second book, a wonderful continuation

    Just as entertaining as the first and I’ll be purchasing the third immediately. The books in this series are a refreshing and interesting change on the traditional alien/human partnership.

    "Logic clearly dictates that the needs of many outweigh the needs of few." ~ Spock

    " Or the one. " ~ Captain Kirk , Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

    Lyn Gala's stories and John Solo narration of them , are a match made in heaven or in this case, in out space, on the Planet Rownt.

    When it comes to book narration, John Solo is in a class of its own. He delivered an outstanding performance. All characters main and secondary had distinctives and recognizable voices and speech patterns. On some pivotal , intense situations and dialogue, he injected so much emotion and depth that my heartache ; it was impossible not to cry.

    Words fail me , when I try to articulate the overwhelming feelings of joy , satisfaction and pleasure , listening of how Ondry and Liam's lives and those they come in contact , are progressing , since book 1; when they became Chilta and Palteia to each other . Considering, Liam left the Army , the human base , to live with Ondry, be his family and part of the Rownt society, many things are changing.

    In Assimilation, Love, and Other Human Oddities , world building continues to grow and expand. Lyn Gala give us vivid and detailed descriptions of life around the MC . Their interactions with other humans , Grandmothers, traders from another towns and even with dangerous and deadly local fauna are told in such a way , that by the end of this book , I felt , I been , physically , in Rownt myself.

    Many things are being reevaluated and are developing around Liam and Ondry . There is an air of uncertainty and they all feel something big is going to happen.
    That what may be , good or bad ; some things will never change , not now or in a 1000 years , that's Ondry's devotion, love and commitment to Liam. And he will do anything and everything to protect him , specially from , other humans.

    This is book 2 of an interconnected 4 book series that need to be listen/read in chronological order.

    Don't think about it, any longer , get this book. It's entertaining, interesting, thoughtful, original, smartly written, addictive and memorable. And it will give you ALL the feels.
    In my opinion, is with a doubt, the Best , Sci-fi Interplanetary Human -Aliens Romance and Adventure Audiobook , you will ever listen. You'll thank me later.

    I willing and happily give my precious audio credits to any book written by Lyn Gala and narrated by John Solo and that's a high compliment from a certified credit hoarder as me.
