I must say I enjoyed “Zylar’s Moons” which consists of Ravyn Wilde’s first two books in her Zylar’s Moons series very, very much. It wasn’t quite five stars for me, but very close and I just ordered the next book in the series to find out what’s happening next! This series a an erotic futuristic/science fiction fantasy mix that has plenty of hot sex, but also an ongoing story line that’s very fantasy oriented. It’s a mix that I found fascinating and sexy at the same time.
“Zylan Captive”-Nyssa had a bad day yesterday. She lost her job and although she didn’t drink to excess last night, she can’t quite figure out what the HELL is going on? She wakes up in a strange place, with an incredibly sexy, but still a stranger, man standing over her with CHAINS running from some very sensitive areas of her body. Ooookay. Now Mr. Hottie is explaining that he’s an alien, she’s on a different planet, can’t go home, and oh by the way, she’s now some kind of SEX TOY?! Well, if he thinks she’s just going to become Mrs. Submissive, he’s got another thing comin’!
Tar is the ruler of Zylar. It’s time for him to find his Companion and raise some little future rulers. With a little help from his high priest, his Companion is located on Earth. Now he’ll just run get her and give her the training she’ll need to become a proper, submissive mate and Companion. No problem, right?
I found myself snorting and laughing and sighing and getting just a tad overheated while reading this story. I found myself cheering for Nyssa as she turns the tables on Tar and tries to bring a little equality for the sexes to Zylar. There are a couple of subplots that kept me flipping the pages and hoping the author writes quickly.
“Selven Refuge”-Mica is the high priest of Zylar and he’s known that Tar’s sister Tala is his Companion for many years now. In his infinite wisdom, he’s graciously given her an extra five years of freedom in an effort to mellow her views on submissive Companions and the requirements of her future. Maybe those extra years were a wee bit of a mistake?
Tala is sick and tired of loving Mica. If she were his Companion, surely he would have picked up on her hints before now and she has no intention of hanging around to watch him with some other woman. So she decides to join the order of Selven Goddesses and have her Companion chains removed forever which will give her sexual freedom and a place to refine her psychic talents. But what will Tala do when Mica finally shows up to claim her?
Even good guys can be a bit thick sometimes. Mica is the kind of hero you just want to lap up with a spoon. The interactions between these two weren’t as humorous as the first book, but the continuing storyline and subplots had me enjoying this one just as much. Now I have to wait for the postman to bring me book three!
