As a pilot and a smuggler, Lenna has spent her life flying under the radar in Coalition space - taking care of herself, not relying on anyone. She's always liked it that way.
But now she's stranded without any resources on a stone-age planet, and the only way to survive is to hook up with a bunch of cavemen. She'll do whatever she needs to do in order to survive in their world - even if it means letting one of them take her as a mate.
She doesn't expect to like it. Or like him. Or lose her heart in the process.
We met Lenna back in book 2 when where she was smuggling partners with Hall. In book 2, Lenna finds herself dumped on a primitive planet as a Coalition punishment. With only the clothes on her back and not a city or ship in site she is vastly out of her element. After days of struggling through the environment, she stumbles across a cave man, who instead of playing nice tries to kill her. It just isn’t her week. Luckily for her, she is rescued by another cave man, Rone,
This story is very reminiscent of Transcendence by Shay Savage, which I loved! Lenna has to learn the customs and the language to communicate the Rone and the rest of his people. In the process, she learns to appreciate the slower pace of life and the simple things. She also finds her heart, her home, her Rone.
I am giving Fall: Hold, Book 3, five Boundless Stars, I loved it.
After I had listened to and really enjoyed the first two books in this series I was looking forward to this one, but it just didn’t measure up. First, the whole caveman thing wasn’t believable at all. In the first two books I could believe the story. No modern space-faring woman would voluntarily have sex with a man that couldn’t do much more than grunt a few unknown words, and that never bathed, shaved, cut or combed his hair! Not happening in my little world. The narration was done well, but I just didn’t feel any connection to the other two books in any way. It’s almost like two different people wrote the first two and book three. Sorry!
