Series: Valos of Sonhadra #4
“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.
Whirlwind by Ripley Proserpina
Valos of Sonhadra #4
Wins the Award for Worst Sister of the Series
This is the first book I have read by Ripley Proserpina and although I would try her again as their were aspects I liked, I didn’t fall in love with this book. The first part of the book felt a little confused and I found the heroes lacklustre. I did like the heroine in the story, she had been through a lot and I wanted to finally have her happily ever after.
Overall thoughts: I thought this was one of the weaker books in the series, however, it was a sweet story and I would read this author again.
Radiant by Naomi Lucas
Valos of Sonhadra #5
Wins the Award for Least Favourite of the Series
Radiant was my least favourite in the series, so much so, that I didn’t actually finish it. I got to about 40% and I just didn’t want to read any more. This has little to do with the story itself and a lot to do with Naomi Lucas’ writing style; I don’t like it. It’s over embellished and over dramatic and for me, unreadable. So I stopped reading.
Overall thoughts: I didn’t like this one, the writing style contains almost everything I can’t tolerate so I decided to stop at 40%.
Shadowed by Isabel Wroth
Valos of Sonhadra #6
Wins the Award for Best in the Series
I loved this one it was my favourite in the series. Because of the scientists experiments on her Deja is now extremely sensitive to light and she can’t be in light without it burning her. Luckily she manages to run into some valos who live in an underground city. I don’t know what it was about this book, but I really liked Deja and her three valos Azurryn, Izax and Arkham. I thought their story was romantic and sexy, with each of the three guys offering something unique. I haven’t read Isabel Wroth before, but I am definitely going to be picking up some more of her books.
Overall thoughts: My favourite in the series, there was something about it that was a little magical.

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?
