Really 3.5 stars...
“No Words Alone” was my first read by Autumn Dawn so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. What I got was a pleasant surprise and a sensuous and interesting futuristic romance. For readers who are s/f fans like me, this is a more romantic s/f story with sex…nothing very explicit, and definitely not erotica, but more of a romantic bent than is found in most s/f books.
It was hard enough when Xera was the only female in her spaceship crew. Then they had to crash land on an alien planet…along with one of the enemy Scorpio spaceships they had just been battling! As translator and the only person who knows ANY Scorpio, of course she will be front and center in any ‘discussions’ with their little-known and mysterious enemy. Little does Xera know she’s about to get an up close and personal education on Scorpian culture from the enemy Captain.
Ryven isn’t just the Captain of the alien spaceship, he’s the son of one of their rulers! He’s disgusted and appalled by the barbarous treatment of the sole female in the earthmen crew. He doesn’t trust the Earth captain at all and when he sees him attack the female he steps in to protect her. He’s captivated by her courage and beauty and unless he wants her to end up in prison on Scorpio’s home planet, he’ll have to think of somewhere else she could be of use!
I agonized over the previous descriptions of the main characters because they are much more than they sound. But you’ll just have to bear with me because every edit sounded even worse! This book delighted AND frustrated me at the same time. There were some places where I was sure some important information must have been edited out. But then the author did a beautiful job of describing the anxiety and fear of a lone woman suddenly stranded with two shipfuls of men! When she added in the realistic descriptions of two people trying to forge a relationship while also learning about each other’s cultures, I found it fascinating.
Callous and greedy corporate raiding on a planetary scale, an Earthly planetary government too weak to be in control, monstrous blood-feeding aliens, handsome humanish aliens, descriptions of technology that were an interesting mixture of cutting-edge and futuristic…there was a lot to admire about Autumn Dawn’s first Dorchester Publishing release. The information gaps and couple of plot stutters in “No Words Alone” weren’t enough to mar my enjoyment of the author’s tale. I’ll be keeping an eye out for her next mainstream publication titled, “When Sparks Fly” (no firm release date). I think other fantasy/science fiction fans who appreciate an extra dollop of romance will enjoy this one too!
