[Free Best] Refugees on Urloon Author Melisse Aires – Multi-channel.co

2.5 stars InterestingThe premise is interesting but sometimes hard to follow some of the concept are abstract or don t fully connect to common analogies there were also ideas that just didn t fit together in the scene or weren t followed through enough to be competed or really worth having I particularly enjoyed that the h h were older in this story And neither were hot, gorgeous or particularly kickass They were like regular people I could relate to a lot of their feelings and doubts The setting and world were engrossing and interesting The romance was realistic, complete with doubts and insecurities and the feeling that it was built on lasting friendship The sex was hot I really liked the hero, Liam, liked him better than the heroine who was the main character for most of the story The secondary characters were fun The aliens were good The larger universe was hinted at enough to make me want to read about it.The alien fertility ritual was beautiful and sensual What didn t I like It needed to be longer Much longer That larger universe and most of its conflict, including what came to Urloon, was skimmed over and told about It would have been very exciting to read as it happened The romance was all acted out but most of the rest was told after the fact And near the end what happened to one person who I won t describe due to spoilers wasn t mentioned that I could tell I reread those few pages four times and couldn t figure out what happened to her One minute she s coughing up water, the next Who knows I couldn t tell Also, my copy had quite a few typos including one sentence that made no sense at all I even got a second opinion on that one Overall, I think this story was good but had the potential to be terrific and a keeper As it is I am glad to have read it but I probably won t read it again. The Good The story doesn t waste any time throwing you into the action and there are several threads running through it to keep up the tension It made a nice change to read a romance story where the couple are an older generation than a lot of those I ve read lately, and the uncertainty between them throughout the story despite or perhaps because of their experiences in life made their relationship poignant The idea of alien pheremones invoking a fertility festival and of humans adapted for aquatic life hooked me from the start The adaptation process is especially intriguing For 37K words, there s a lot packed into this story.The Bad I felt the stories of the two main groups of antagonists in this was slightly underplayed overall I feel the Wilders especially should have been a little significant in their threat earlier in the story.In Sum This is a sweet and sensual romance, skillfully woven into a human society adapted to an alien world Easy to read and compelling. This was an ok book The setting on the planet was interesting Overall, there was far too much telling rather than showing throughout the story And events that happened were quite predictable.
