Lunarian Warriors: Books 1-3 by Roxie Ray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t let my captor claim me as his mate…no matter how much I want him…

I’ve been swept off my feet before, and I’ve got the bruises to show just how badly that ended. I’m not about to fall at the feet of the next man – or alien – to cross my path. Especially not when he steals me away from home and wants to use me as his broodmare.

Kloran is intense and sometimes scary. A prince of his people with a duty so deeply ingrained it’s hard to see where it ends and he begins. But the glimpses of the man beneath the hardened warrior prince make me wonder if there’s something more between us…

The heroine: Bria – she was married and was abused by her husband. She grew up in sector six, but married a man from sector one. She didn’t look the part for sector one society (not blonde and thin), she is brunette and curvy. She was grey class and her sector one badge showed that. She shouldn’t be leaving her sector. Her badge tagged her as being from a lower class than the blue class of sector one. Leaving her husband wasn’t easy, but she wanted to get out of her marriage alive.

The Hero: Kloran – he is a prince of Lunaria and tasked with finding breeding slaves to save his species from extinction within the next generation. He purchased Bria on the breeding slave market thinking she had agreed to being a slave at auction.

The Story: Kloran and his crew find out quickly that Bria was under duress and had not agreed to her situation. They are worried that if she dies, they will not be able to buy another slave at auction and if they returned her then she might end up in a worse situation than with them.

The Lunarian’s decide that they still want to see if a woman from Earth is able to carry a half Lunarian child. Since none of their other breeding slaves have been able to get pregnant from being inceminated. Now that they know Bria is not a slave and never agreed to be in the slave auction, they have to free her but if she gets attracted to one of the Lunarian’s and the make a baby the old fashioned way, of her own free will, then all the better for them.

The book was told in dual points of view using dual narration. The narrators were Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister. I like duet narration much better where the female narrator does all the female parts and the male narrator does all the male parts. However, these two did a good job and I tend to pick books that have a male and female narrator whether it is dual or duet narration. Sierra did a great job as Bria, who is anxious and hesitant due to her abusive background.

The heroine: Sawyer – she is a kindergarten teacher who finds her fiancé balls deep in his best man and walks out on him, speeding away from him to put as much space between her and her fiancé as possible. She gets into an accident on the highway and wakes up to find she has been abducted by aliens.

The Hero(es): Haelian – second in command to General (and Prince) Kloran of the Lunarian warriors. Since Kloran found his fated mate in a human woman who was abducted from her planet against her wishes, he has sent Haelian after the group who had been illegally taking human females off their planet. Haelian has been made General since the prince has stayed on Lunaria with his mate and daughter.

The Story: Haelian found the group who had been abducting females from earth and selling them as slaves at auction. He found out that they were also giving the pick of each shipment of females to the Rutharians in exchange for being left alone by the evil Rutharians who are the scourge of the universe. General Haelian has found that three females from Earth have been given to the Rutharians and he and his men plan to sneak aboard the Rutharian ship to free the women.

Some of the standard alien romance tropes are used in this series (especially the one where there are almost no females left in the Lunarian species and they need to find women of other species to bear their children so that their species doesn’t die out completely). Though I was happy to see that in this series, the Lunarian warriors actually wear clothes instead of traveling through space in loincloths like many of the other series I have read. As much as I love the “D”, I really do like men in clothes.

Like the first, this book was told in dual points of view and via dual narration, where the male narrator does the chapters in Haelian’s point of view (including the female lines) and the female narrator does the narration on all of the chapters in Sawyers point of view. The narrations were Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister. The both have very pleasant voices that work well for these characters and I enjoyed listening to them.

I liked the storyline in this book a bit better than the first book. Haelian is a great heroic character. In the first book, I loved the way he was so focused on stopping the abduction and sale of humans even before he found that human females can procreate with Lunarians. Sawyer is a strong female lead and an interesting character as well.

The heroine: Alyse – a human female who was abducted from Earth and taken captive by the Rutharian king. Alyse first met the Rutharian king when she was six years old when she refused to go with him and He killed her parents. She comes from a wealthy family and became a doctor before the king returned to Earth and stole her away.

The Hero(es): Nion – A young Lunarian Warrior who made friends with Sawyer from the last book. He is determined to get revenge against the Rutharian who killed his brother. He is a great guy who takes care of his mother and treats human females as people when a lot of others see them as nothing more than wombs for their children.

The Story: Nion leads the raid on the Rutharian ship and saves Alyse from being raped yet again. When they get back to the Lunarian ship, Alyse refuses to be tested for pregnancy because she knows she can’t handle the results. Nion feels desire for Alyse but knows that a human female as beautiful as her would have her pick of wealthy Lunarians and noblemen. Nion is a lowly soldier from nowhere and has nothing of his own, so he knows if he falls for her, he will inevitably lose her.

The book was narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister in dual points of view and dual narration. I really like these two narrators. Sierra has a great voice for females and she does a low voice for the male characters that actually sounds male. Logan has a great deep voice which was perfect for Nion.

I liked both of these characters. Nion worries a bit about the fact that he is a poor soldier who doesn’t own any land and can’t provide for her like the wealthy elite of Lunaria, but he doesn’t sulk about it and it doesn’t go on and on. He wants Alyse and allows himself to go after what he wants. Alyse is a strong character who has a bit of PTSD but she bounces back from what happened to her fairly quickly. There is a big surprise later in the book which I couldn’t have guessed so that was nice. This was the best book of the series so far and I did purchase the next four.
