Series: Valos of Sonhadra #1
“If you love alien sci fi romances, you need to give this series a try”
~ Under the Covers
The Valos of Sonhadra series is a Sci-Fi alien romance with each of the 9 books in the series being told by a different author. If you have a favourite author of the bunch and don’t want to read them all don’t worry, each book can be read as a standalone. The background story for each book is the same, the heroine for nefarious and various reasons has been locked away in a prison ship and being experimented on by scientists. The experimentation changes each of the heroines in some way, which becomes massively useful when the prison ship crash lands on an unfamiliar planet. That’s when the heroine starts to meet the natives. Sonhadra, the planet they have landed on, is inhabited by different factions of valos. The valos all have unique abilities and appearances…and most of them haven’t seen a female in a long long time.
Alluvial by Amanda Milo
Valos of Sonhadra #1
Wins the Award for Weirdest Alien Cock of the Series
This series popped up on my radar because of Amanda Milo, I have read her books before (check out her Stolen by an Alien series) and really enjoyed them. What I like about Milo is her aliens, she writes a great alien romance she makes them weird, but still kind of sexy as well. However, although the aliens in this one qualified as weird, although intriguing, I just didn’t find them sexy. That didn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the heroine being romance by three tree aliens and one human male, but it came across as more sweet then sexy.
Overall thoughts: I enjoyed it, however, it perhaps wasn’t the best introduction to the series and wasn’t my favourite.
Tempest by Poppy Rhys
Valos of Sonhadra #2
Wins the Award for Hottest Sex Scene of the Series
Poppy Rhys is another author I have read and enjoyed before (check out her Women of Dor Nye series), for much the same reason as I liked Amanda Milo, she gives good alien! And I loved her quartet of water/lightning valos in Tempest. She did a great job of giving each of the four alien men their own distinct personality in this relatively short book. She also wrote, in my opinion, the hottest sex scene..one woman, four sexy alien men it was quite the ride.
Side note: the heroine in this book is the sister of the heroine in Alluvial and they both pop up in each other’s book. However, you don’t need to have read Alluvial to understand the events in Tempest.
Overall thoughts: Sexy and cute, I really enjoyed this one.
Blazing by Nancey Cummings
Valos of Sonhadra #3
Wins the Award for Best Redemption of the Series
I hadn’t read Nancey Cummings before, but after reading Blazing I am definitely going to check out her other work. In some ways Lucie had it the worst, forced into helping the scientists experiment on the other prisoners, she is hated by her fellow prisoners and by the guards and scientists…and by herself. So, when she crash lands on Sonhadra and fines a place with three hot (hehe) fire valos she wants to help the other survivors. I really liked this story, Cummings does a great job of imbuing the three heroes with character and gives Lucie a chance to redeem herself.
Overall thoughts: A great read, not as sexy as some of the others, but I liked Lucie’s story.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
