“…although the story in this one isn’t my favourite, I did fall in love with the hero and heroine. ”
~ Under the Covers

We are on the final book in the Iriduan Test Subject series and so far Trombley has managed to turn a monster scorpion/humanoid hybrid and a cephalopod/humanoid hybrid into fantastic heroes, can she do the same with a serpent/humanoid combo? Damn right she can.

But it wasn’t just Nahash, our scaled, tailed and double cocked hero that I liked. Cass our heroine was an older character, I believe in her 40s, and it brought a level of maturity and confidence to her reactions, especially her attraction to Nahash that you don’t always find in younger heroines. So, although the story in this one isn’t my favourite, I did fall in love with the hero and heroine.

Trombley opens up a lot of possibilities in this book for the continuing books set in the universe, however, I felt it was at the deficit to the overall story in this series. Although the romance gets a really good conclusion, it was not a good end to the series over all. It left too much unanswered. I know that Trombley plans to write more, but I feel that a completed trilogy should leave a reader feeling more satisfied than this one did.

But, that wouldn’t stop me from recommending the book to anyone who enjoys a great sci-fi alien romance where the aliens are alien. I enjoyed the romance aspect of this story and I look forward to whatever Susan Trombley brings out next.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
