The Delight

The final story and they are to the point that of not kidnapping women. Instead, this one is a rescue mission that just leads to love.


Review

Skylar is still on Earth and recovered from an assault. A college student that goes home to a gruesome scene of her parents’ death and the reptilian aliens who murdered them still in the house. So infuriated she radiates a power that kills the aliens. Braxton the healer finds her and must take her with them in chase of the save other women the reptilian’s did capture, including Skylar’s best friend.

Braxton has been a favorite character of mine in this series. He’s a warrior, a healer, and lover with a side of kink. He has comforted the women of this series from the kidnapping to giving birth. He’s a lot more than just the healer we have gotten to know. He is from a different family in the alien world than the ruling one, but he supports them over his own. He has the telekinesis power that his father was envious of which caused a lot of abuse in his life. We don’t learn of his powers until shit hits the fan. Now he is on a mission to save the women of earth, but also to give them the choice of coming with them.

Skylar is a warrior herself, having survived sexual assault. Braxton is honest with her that they are mates, but she doesn’t believe him, gets jealous easily and unreasonably. Right off, I didn’t like her character at all. She felt immature for the most part with a male who was very mature and caring. There is some battles to bring an action to this story, but it all feels forced instead of organic. Like taking out the entire race, but it seems they live in one village and can fly around to different worlds. There’s even a scene where some of the past hero’s show up and it felt just off.

This brings an end to the series, but there is a spin-off series based on another race that helped in the war. I just don’t think I am up for that one…because their help was contingent on them getting some of the females. Yeah, this whole consent thing is getting me and I won’t be coming back to this author for the time being.

Not covers that appeal to me and that this isn’t author you’ll be coming back to any time soon doesn’t surprise me, I have friends who are huge fans of this genre and they too have struggled with this series because (or mainly because) of the consent thing

Glad the series wrapped up nice, I cannot stay in the same genre too long or I get burned out.

I do like the sound of Braxton. Wonder if I could read just this one…
