Note: This review is for the first four books in V.C. Lancaster’s The Gandry series: Ruth’s Bonded, Gron’s Fated and Unbonded
I wish I could remember who recommended this series to me, because I loved it and need to thank them. Clearly my recommender knows exactly what I love; really alien aliens. I lap it up! If my hero has a different planet of origin than mine, then I want him to be undeniably alien. I know not everyone feels the same way, but V.C. Lancaster certainly does!
Review for: Ruth’s bonded and gron’s fated by V.C. Lancaster
Gron our alien hero and his fellow alien friends have a pelt, tail and big sharp fangs, so if that doesn’t rev your engine, then this isn’t going to be the series for you. Gron lives in a matriarchal and primitive society where the females are larger and more aggressive. The female, the Queen, rules over an all male tribe and has a select few of those males as her mates. It’s good to be Queen! But, Gron has been abducted from his tribe and locked in a metal box. Ruth, a human woman is thrown in with him. This is where the fun begins and our story starts.
Not only do Ruth and Gron have massive cultural and societal difficulties to overcome, they also have to do this without being able to speak to one another. For reasons explained in the series they are unable to speak or understand one another’s language. This means they have to find other ways to communicate. I admit, this aspect of the story was strange at first they never have a typical verbal conversation through the whole series. But I found the way they came together where they could only demonstrate their feelings through actions and body language really sweet. It was all show and no tell. For the reader it is made easier as the book switches between Ruth and Gron’s POV. So, even though Ruth and Gron don’t know what the other is thinking, we do.
Review for: unbonded by V.C. Lancaster
But, Ruth and Gron aren’t the only couple in this series the third book Unbonded gives us a menage romance. Moira is abducted and ends up being saved by some familiar aliens from the previous books. They help her adapt to this new world and bring her back to Ruth and Gron’s tribe. I admit, I missed Ruth and Gron, our original couple, in this book and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first two in the series, however, it was still a good read with plenty of alien hotness.
I loved this series, looking beyond the alien weirdness you will find an adorable love story with plenty of heat. Who knew tails could be so sexy? As soon as the next book comes out I will be all over it! So, if you like a sweet alien love story I highly recommend giving this one a go.
