Return to the Colony!
In an all new Interstellar Brides Program book, Ms. Goodwin returns us to the Colony. A new Prillon pair of Warriors is here with more than a few problems leftover from their time in the hands of the Hive. Unfortunately, there wasn’t as much that the skilled doctors could do to remove the implants on these two. And for the first time, the Hive has involved the Prillon Mating Collars!
Two honorable warriors with nothing left to lose…until they find her.
Prillon warrior Thomar Arcas is the royal heir to his ancestor’s legacy of dishonor, betrayal and death. When he was captured by the Hive, some on his home world cheered. Some sighed with relief. None shed a tear.
Thomar and his second, Varin, break free and destroy an enemy base, barely escaping with their lives. They transport to The Colony, the last refuge for contaminated males. Upon arrival they suffer in agony, their cyborg implants fighting for control of the powerful warriors.
Defeat is not in their blood. Not in their history. Not in their souls. Unable to sever their ties to the Hive integrations, they suffer relentless pain. Unwilling to force others to suffer, Thomar has chosen an honorable death over further disgrace; until they are matched to a human female from Earth who will do anything, and sacrifice anyone, to save them
Spinneretta 4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2021 Verified Purchase Danika was in prison when she decided to join the bride program. Paired with two Prillon Warriors, she is ecstatic to finally have people to call her own. She is surprised, however, when the two warriors try to deny her. Thomar and Varin have been outcast amongst the Prillon, for actions taken centuries ago. Operated on and augmented by the hive, their implants causing great pain, they are sure that Danika would be better with someone else. Danika knows that they are perfect for her, however, and never let it be said that a human woman would give up that easily… This was a very moving addition to the series. Danika herself is wounded by her own past, and it makes her perfect for members of the colony. Both Thomar and Varin are typical Prillon, honourable and protective, qualities that make them perfect for Danika. That being said, it is what we hear about the Hive in this book that really makes a difference; a significant piece of information and it is such a small part of the story! As with every Interstellar Brides book, you can expect plenty of romance and sexy-times, along with some cameo appearances by heroines and heroes of previous books. The annoying Dr. Helion has to stick his oar in too, and of course the hive are active. Although the romance itself is a standalone romance, this is part of the Interstellar Brides series, and needs to be read as part of it as some significant information is given in those earlier books that readers need for context and understanding. An enjoyable sci-fi romance for genre fans, and an important addition to the Interstellar Brides for fans of the series.
Bourbon, Books and Brenda 5.0 out of 5 stars Two damaged heroes and one damaged heroine…Can three shattered souls form a new whole? Reviewed in the United States on November 10, 2021 Verified Purchase ***** Rating: 5 stars Steam: 2.5 flames Genre: Alien / Broken Hero / Broken Heroine ***** I am not going to lie; this book broke my little Grinch heart. Thomar and Varin have escaped the hive, but they haven’t escaped their torment or torture. Although they are no longer prisoners of the hive, they are prisoners all the same… Danika is a prisoner too… and now she is looking for something she has never had. Freedom, love, protection… SAFETY and so she decides to do something about her circumstances, and she joins the Interstellar Brides program. This book… good heavens, Thomar and Varin INSTANTLY won my heart. They are both honorable protectors that have been dealt a terrible hand in life. Danika is tough, and she exudes an undeniable strength. I am so darn happy to be back in with the Interstellar Brides! I have missed these warriors! But the warriors from the colony will always have a special place in my heart. Claimed by the Cyborgs is a well-written page-turner with characters you can't help but fall in love with and a universe you can't help but fantasize about. I am a big believer that more is better... which is why two Prillion fighters are always better than one! A MUST-READ ROMANCE and all the recommendations from me!
Bookworm555 5.0 out of 5 stars These Colony warriors always break my heart Reviewed in the United States on November 10, 2021 Verified Purchase Another heart-wrenching Colony story. If you haven't read any of these stories - The Colony is where the Coalition Hive war veterans with Hive integrations have been exiled. This Prillon pair have suffered greatly at the hands of the Hive, as they were in Hive hands for two years. And just when Thomar is ready to do a major sacrifice for Varin, they are informed that their matched bride is in transit to The Colony. Enter Danika, one of our criminal brides (for those that don't know - criminals are given the chance to volunteer for the Interstellar Brides program to commute their sentences). Danika is looking for something she has not had since she was 8 years old - safety and security and she is willing to fight for it. I loved that this story was more about the fallout from Thomar and Varin's captivity and the ongoing Hive experiments. I really loved that we got more information on the Hive reasoning and actions - the main twist was hinted at in previous books. I cannot wait to see were the twist is heading especially after the major reveal from the Nexus. There are some smexy scenes for those that require them but i skipped over them to get to the action. I am all for the story and found this edition to the series - fantastic with great reveals. Read less
