Welp 3 stars I don t know if I m too harsh because I waitedso longor what I think the build up was too much for me Let me splain I m going to start by talking about the editing Dear god, it was just bad So bad Bad bad Words in mixed up places, homonyms instead of the correct words In one instance, a character is replaced for another so I had backtrack to make sure who was actually doing what Now, I m not a writer Look at the mess I write Not great My grammar is atrocious Sentence structure I don t think so ButThere had to be a person, someone, anyone who would go over the material and point some things out The very obvious ones I volunteer I would seriously do it in a heartbeat because, while I m disappointed in some portions of this book, the imagination that made this world is flipping awesome Also, I still want to know what happens next and my love for Venomous is strong Another issue I had was the crazy high level of angst Everyone loved someone but no one would open their damn mouth to talk about it You know, the way people do It was maddening Finally S ne Not my fav I m a fan of a flawed heroine but I need to see the potential Ya mean I am sympathetic to her life and struggles but I never got over the irritation Her self centeredness was hard to overlook and, yeah, she kinda sorta starts to turn shit around but too late for me Lumen appears for a good part of the book and the comparison between the two wasn t favorable for S ne Ironic, because view spoiler S ne struggles with the same comparison and I couldn t help but agree Lumen is better hide spoiler Life as a single parent is hard Working two jobs, no support from the dead beat sperm donor, deciding which bills get paid and which can wait, and a pending birthday for her daughter leaves Sine with barely enough energy to function Maybe that s why hallucinating an alien king has come to take her to his planet as his Queen seems so real Wait There really is an alien in her home and he does want her as his One And Only Mate So what s a girl to do but run Hassabard Gengorye ThunderClaw, great Alpha of all Veraks, concerns over finding a female to rival Lumen are put to rest when he finds a red haired vixen that is everything he s ever dreamed of She even practices his planet s age old tradition that requires him to prove his worthiness in the bride war chase Though giving him a fine chase, in the end he prevails thus making her, her cub, kin his ThunderClaw and High Commander Eorik , secondary characters in the previous installment Venomous, were teased at the ending of Venomous in such a way that I have been anxiously anticipating the release of this book Finally it s out Want to add that for those wondering if this can be read as a stand alone, nope The author has pulled in multiple scenes and information from the first installment making it impossible to follow if you haven t read Venomous.There are way too many twists, turns, SciFi adventure subplots in this story 527 pages for me to credibly cover without risking spoiler potential Generalizing the overall tone I d say it s a mix of humor snark, baggage angst issues, romance with adult content that includes mmf , convoluted action adventure scenes that concludes in a teaser I wouldn t classify as a cliffhanger ending The beginning of the story jumps right into the birth of Lumen s baby Quite the drama and this is when I say it s important to have read the first installment or get totally lost and confused Loved the follow up and loved Lumen as much as ever However, it did signal the first concern of many I had The very first Earth alien baby really should have a good medical support system in place as one never knows.After this scene the story does go on to feature the stars of the story, Beowyn, Sine, Eorik These three were nothing like I expected and all that I d hoped A few glitches and a whole lot of road blocks to get through kept things interesting Admittedly, there were scenes where I felt the author was forcing things along but overall a good 2nd in series installment I d classify the romance between the main characters are of a romantic suspense sort of thing than anything Add a menage component and it makes for a convoluted twisty turny sort of thing that didn t live up to my expectations though the author made a good attempt Can t move on without mentioning King Beowyn In the last installment I got the perception he was a man whore I really didn t know how he ruled a planet with such a mentality but figured he was hiding his true self for whatever reason Happy that this turned out to be the case as his real personality showed itself But He was still a male version of dumb blonde in the romance department That s all I ll say For those readers who want to know if a story crosses into adult content or not Yupper Does and includes mf, mm and mmf scenes to boot Oh to have a pleasure couch of my own The cast of secondary cast is long Between Sine s kin and Beowyn s subjects harem, way too many names to include so I m not I may not have agreed or liked some of them cough cough Liiam but the author does give them their own personality and set of morals which adds credibility and depth to the overall story There is a little inner side of me that wished the author had included a scene or two to deal with some maybe a vacation on the planet Mercury or such but I guess we all can t get what we want now can we The nuts and bolts of the story though are the action adventure thriller scenes To have a sustaining series an author does need to weave an overall concept that connects the different installments I can see where the author is trying to do this but I m not sure I m on board with it Seems a band aid fix measure than anything, however, I have been proven wrong before so I ll wait impatiently until the next installment comes out Granted the wait time from Venomous to ThunderClaw was 3 years but for the right author book time isn t as important as end product so I m good to wait Lastly, editing issues were problematic With a story of over 500 pages I do feel errors will happen but investing in a good editor is important for that same reason Having waited quite the time for this story s release, I m happy and appreciate the complex story line that included adult content SciFi romance, action, suspense, twist turns, angst, tear jerking drama, familial love acceptance and a few surprises along the way It hit all the bells and whistles that made the previous installment a success, though, it didn t thrill me to the same degree My initial feeling was this story was a 3.5 star but the author definitely strived to give the reader an experience that had me leaning towards the 4 star. @Free E-pub â Thunderclaw (Alien Warrior, #2) ⚧

had been blowing him It all leaves a bad taste in one s mouth h seems a hypocrite and accepted H on false pretences And as for the H, I have no idea why romance authors insist on writing a committed HEA for guys like these just let him enjoy his harem The End.Not for me. I really wanted to give this a 5 star rating but in the endI just couldn t.For me, Venomous is hard to beat Let me just say that Sine was no Lumen.How did Beowyn find Sine I found it hard to believe that he just randomly saw her in a restaurant and knew right away Did her have to search the whole plantet I did quite enjoy Sine s family thoughPatrick, Fergus, Aled, Rowan and little Fergie.I am so team Eorik The way he took care of Fergie when they were stranded Him changing her diaper totally had me cracking up And the way he cares for Beowyn is just so heartbreaking.I wanted Sine to be open to her feelings for Beowyn She was a little difficult to love as a character One thing that made me quite uncomfortable is when view spoiler she has sex with Eorik before even consummating her marriage to Beowynit felt a little like cheating to me hide spoiler 3.25 stars Verse is still fascinating The world building is pretty impressive and continues to expand as Veraks Beowyn and orik go on the quest to find Beowyn s One When they meet S ne pronounced Shee na , that s when the WTFery and eventually romance, happens The adventure spans the verse from Earth to their home planet, Vayhalun and I did love the ride and getting to learn about the lusty Veraks Not a standalone This picks up immediately after events of Venomous, and Lumen and her R males feature pretty heavily in this installment, as the overarching storyline is the strongest asset to this book Romances that are 1 1 1 happy me It s a triad, which I love This is a MMF type menage, so the sexuality is fluid, the world itself is all about embracing the differences and not judging how people come together, no pun intended Love is truly love and that is a message I can get behind For those concerned with safe vs unsafe reads, well, menage is generally not very safe, and there s some OW M interactions Hard to describe without going into spoiler territory but none of it goes past the point of no return for me, so I could handle it Miscommunications galore With that type of open message, I was disappointed to see that the romance depended so heavily on these three avoiding discussing their feelings, as well as some drama llama behavior that turned me off a tad They struggled so much in communications when things that could have been handled much efficiently with some actual talking They even mention to each other that they should talk, then don t do it There s plenty of drama to be had in the overarching storyling that this felt unnecessary The story is a bit unevenly written and paced It is long, and I do love a long book, as it usually gives you time to really delve into characterizations, but from an editing standpoint, but I do think it was a bit rushed to print There were several editing errors extra words, typos, etc that need to be cleaned up Editing would have also helped with certain passages that felt superfluous and could have helped in keeping that tension from the overarching storyline tight, instead of meandering all over the place As a consequence, towards the end it felt as if there was a rush to add several elements right at the end to build for the next installment and to wrap up the romance.I was torn on the rating because there were several things that drove me crazy, but that overarching storyline still intrigues me The verse is great and that tease for the next installment I have no idea how that s going to work, I suspect it will make me very uncomfortable and yet I know I ll be reading it If that s your kind of sci fi read, give this a chance but I d start with the first book, Venomous For reviews, visit I really want to read this book but I can t seem to find it anywhere DNF at 45%Another book going to my Not likely to finish shelf.The story started off on a bad note by bringing Lumen back I had hoped that she wouldn t be back again once the real story started I was wrong What pushed me over was Sines convoluted way of thinking Her constant acting like she doesn t want something, only to turn around and think that s exactly what I want Her over exaggerated insecurity, and her ability to see exactly what she s doing wrong, but does nothing to stop herself or fix things Oh and can we say hypocritical much I don t care how she sees things or works it out in her head, you can t sleep with someone else then get upset when the guy does the same Sorry honey, if you ve been spreading your legs for another man not once, but twice Your husband gets a pass for getting sucked off and not even liking it all that much. Actual 3.75 starsOk, let s be honest All of us Venomous fans are total stalkers, we were crabby at Penelope for the delayed release and lack of updates, and we all knew the minute ThunderClaw was announced available for preorder or live, and we re all like So, this book had a great deal to live up to for most of us, not just in comparison to Venomous but due to the build up and wait I think this sort of situation can lead to skewed reviews because we judge based on comparison and emotional expectations I ll TRY not to be that way side note is it really fair to give a book a rating before it ever comes out because you re ticked off at the author for missing a release date come on, people that is not reviewing a book, that s venting end rant.I had a difficult time getting into this book at the start, because I didn t identify with Sine As a woman, I felt her reactions to the beginning circumstances were not believable and kinda wishy washy As a mother, her maternal reactions were weak, particularly in the immediate scenes where view spoiler despite the fact that she was separated from her BABY DAUGHTER on a dangerous jungle PLANET where VICIOUS SPECIES wanted to cause them all HARM hide spoiler I enjoyed this for the most part More as a sci fi really than a romance Sometimes a polyamory story can work for me but here I was not really convinced about anyone s true feelings Hero A loved the heroine best The heroine loved Hero B and Hero B loved Hero A Supposedly Really though it seemed like the heroes loved each other and the heroine was an afterthought The story started out strong with the conflict of the culture clash really shaping up to be interesting but somehow it all just lost impetus The sci fi stayed pretty strong though so I liked it from that element Decent read but not a reread.
