    One thought on “Zonaton

    1. Jean

      A Science Fiction RomanceZonaton, the male lead, chooses to pair, a rare action, with Emmala, the female lead, during her time for the "Walk".As Emmala grows older, she and Zonaton develop feelings for one another.I liked Emmala, she was a strong well developed character. I wasn't to sure about Zonaton in the beginning but he grew on me. The book was interesting but there was more focus on the villagers than the growing relationship between the two leads.The story was not as carefree and fluffy [...]

      Zonaton is a geron, one of the indigenous species of an unnamed planet that several human survivors have sought refuge on. In exchange for the right to live on the lands granted to them by the gerons, human children have to take “The Walk” at the age of five. The gerons can eliminate children, allow the children to finish the walk unharmed or, in rare instances, “Pair” with the child. Emmala is a troubled human child who Pairs with Zonaton during The Walk. As Emmala reaches maturity, she [...]

      I think the hero is a virgin. From what I picked up on in the book, he also could not be a virgin; however, I'm leaning towards virgin considering that he'd never had a mate or children and that his kind did not seem to be sexual beings.I did not like the heroine. She killed the ratings on this one for me. I get that she wasn't raised with others of her kind or what not; however, she sets into motion and does things that I can not forgive or get over.She recognizes that she is in love with Zonat [...]

      The synopsis of this was interesting so I requested this for review and I was given this audiobook in exchange for that, an honest review. This is the first book from Audrey I've listened to, and I think she did a great job with the character voices, actions and reactions. The guys were pretty gruff and distinguished, like Zonaton, I do think the only thing that got to me was sometimes the squeak on the women was a little high especially when over excited, I hated Emmala's mother for that but it [...]

      This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.The incestual theme was slightly awkward, but I'm not going to judge it. It feels a little bit like a sitcom, where the characters all work on a misunderstanding that arises from miscommunication. The Gerons rescue human children who were abused and give them better lives, but the humans see them as monsters who steal their children. The humans make ex [...]

      Here's a theme I'm not very fond of: (view spoiler)[ raise it up from a child, and then marry it especially, in real life, (aka Woody Allen) yikes! (hide spoiler)] But this is fiction, and I thought it was done with very good explanation and circumstances.Oh, and the (view spoiler)[ second life scenario was lovely as well. (hide spoiler)]Not necessarily unique, but it was quite an original story.I thought it was short for a novel. Or maybe that was just me wanting more :D

      ZonatonI really enjoyed this story. The love between Zon and Em was so beautiful. The world building was great and I loved the HEA. Thank you Linda Mooney for another great sci fi romance. I highly recommend.

    8. Brenda

    9. R *is for Relentless*

      This book leaves me a bit conflicted on if I liked it or not. It kept seeming to build towards something but I'm still not sure if we reached it.
