Solan's Mate: A SciFi Shifter Romance (The Last Alphas of Thracos Book 1) by Marina Maddix and Aubrey Rose Review
he doesn’t need his protection and he doesn’t need the distraction of her luscious curves. Except they’re both wrong…
I hate my life. So do all the other genetically inferior orphans at the Training Center. How much worse could it get than forced diets, grueling exercise and gene therapy designed to tame our curves?
As it turns out, so much worse.
When I discover that I’ve been sold as a sex slave, I’m horrified. When I find out that my two best friends are meant to suffer the same fate, my fear changes to anger. I’d do anything to save my ‘sisters’, even if it means facing down the most terrifying monster on this Godforsaken planet.
I love my tribe. As wolf shifters, we’re at the top of Thracos’ food chain, but if we don’t find a solution to our fertility problem, we’ll die out with a whimper instead of a roar.
As the alpha, it’s all on me to find the answer.
When three alien colonists crash land in our forest, I can’t help wondering if they hold the key to our survival. I also can’t help being drawn to their beautiful leader. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a mate. But Sienna’s need to protect her sisters is strong, so when it clashes with her need for me, I’m left with one burning question:
Who will she choose?
It wasn't awful but it could have been much more. There are lots of plots points dropped and out of character behavior that if fixed could have made the book so much better.
Examples: Why is the other tribe so barbaric? Why does the hero do that dumb thing (or not do the right thing that his character would totally do) and talk about in his head forever? Why don't the the heroine and her friends think about saving the other girls. This tribe needs women.
Sigh. Annoying. I am interesting in the the other heroines but I am likely going to not like the next book much either based on these kinds of errors.
