  • Lovely start to a series

    I liked a lot of things about this book. The main characters were well developed & their deepening relationship entertaining, heart-warming & sexy. The world-building was much better than average for an alien-human romance. I hope Gala will keep writing novels about the Rownt. And I LOVED the fact that problems were solved with talking; guns were not the answer to every cross-cultural challenge. There are three more Liam & Ondry stories out already, so I didn't have to wait to find out what happens next. (This book was more expensive than I expected for the start of a series. I felt like I was taking a leap of faith with a new-to-me author. But worth it!) There is some bonus material at the start & finish. The stuff at the end adds a little on Ondry's childhood, but mostly gives other POV on key events. The stuff at the beginning explains what happened when Liam & Ondry met. The novel is tighter without this, but I was glad I read it to start with the first time arond. (This has definitely joined my set of favourite re-readable stories.)

  • Amazing!

    I’m thrilled that Lyn Gala’s extraordinary Claimings series is being offered in audio! Brought to life by the wonderfully expressive John Solo, the first novel, Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts, sets the stage for this stunning series. And I’m just giving you fair warning: Plan on committing to all four audiobooks because once you let Ondry and Liam into your heart you’ll never get enough! A linguistics specialist in Earth’s military, Liam has held the position of trader on the planet Prarownt for five years. While he’s a decent trader, Liam’s true value lies in his ability to collect details of the culture, customs, and language of the Rownt, the native beings of the planet. Most of what he learns is through his relationship with Ondry, the Rownt’s finest trader, and the two have cultivated a tentative friendship. Identified by his need to please and serve others, Liam is recognized as a Palteia by the Rownt. Viewed as precious and held in the highest esteem, Patleia are to be protected and cherished for the treasures they are. When a military change of command threatens Liam’s position on Prarownt, Ondry steps in to claim Liam as his own Palteia. After years of abuse and being repeatedly exploited, it breaks my heart to see Liam’s relief at Ondry’s care. As he begins to understand the level of respect and honor a Palteia commands, his walls come down and he becomes a different person. There’s a compelling dynamic between Ondry and Liam right from the start, and once Ondry claims Liam, the added dimensions of their D/s connection is irresistible. Between the tongue twisting Rownt language, the wide array of unusual characters, and the subtle nuances of all the relationships, Mr. Solo’s interpretation lives up to everything I could have hoped for. As a huge science fiction fan, I have to gush a bit about Lyn Gala’s skill at building this incredible world. She explores the Rownt’s society, culture, and customs and includes imaginative details about their physical characteristics and the intricacies of their language. It’s all seamlessly incorporated over the course of this series, so by the end of the fourth Claimings novel I think I know every aspect of this world as well as I do my own. It takes a special narrator to bring this extraordinary collection to life, and I’m so glad the honor goes to John Solo. Between the tongue twisting Rownt language, the wide array of unusual characters, and the subtle nuances of all the relationships, Mr. Solo’s interpretation lives up to everything I could have hoped for. As Lyn Gala mentions in her author’s note, Ondry is modeled on her ideal of the perfect dom. Gaining his enjoyment by watching his Palteia lost in pleasure, Ondry’s exploration of Liam’s body and his responses is extremely erotic. Throughout the series, as their intimacy grows, the connection between Liam and Ondry is incredibly moving. Fans of romance and science fiction, I highly recommend this wonderful love story, especially now that the Claimings series is available in audiobook!

  • I can't even...

    All the emotions. I did not read the original version but this is a glorious story are so much deeper by the bonus materials. I look forward to reading more of Ondry and Liam. An amazing alien society and a enthralling relationship.
