Publisher's Summary

Manumitter

n. Someone who frees others from slavery or bondage.

Reid.

If being my wife was something galactic women could apply for, they’d happily die for the opportunity. I am a Lyran Metamorph god. I am the god of night. Shockingly, this human female only wants to return to Earth. I fear she will not pass the three challenges to become my wife. I must woo her and inspire her. This human must succeed. If she fails, we both die. Our destinies are intertwined. We must be victorious.

Is this human female strong enough to pass the Lyran challenges?

Libby.

I was abducted while walking home from work in Michigan. Sold and then sold again to a galactic zoo. Rescued by a Lyran Metamorph. My manumitter says I’m his wife, almost. He says if I return to Lyra Prime and marry him, he will set me free. The more I know of him, the more I fall in love with him, and the more I question my own reality. This seems too good to be true.

Is it possible to love an alien?

Note:

HEA. Stand-alone. Possible triggers: reference to rape, being kept in an alien zoo, or kept as an alien’s pet. Intimacy between the main characters is consensual, M/F.

Interesting Storyline

I found this storyline interesting and enjoyable; it was good to see how love can bloom out of difficult situations. The narrators did a good job with characters.

Great science-fiction with a Romance

I listened to this book from start to finish as it really held my interest. The world building and depth of character is much more elaborate than what one would normally expect from this type of book, Both the hero and the heroine have their faults and make their mistakes but it makes the book so much more interesting and even the steamy scenes had some unusual twists. I knew it was a HEA but despite this it managed to surprise me and I can highly recommend it to anybody looking for a bit more than the usual formula. Narration is also very good.

Manumitter - Libby and Reid

The fact that Jack Calihan was one of the narrators is what attracted me to this book. I love sci-fi romance, but for me, this book was just OK. Jack, however, did a great job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

MORE SCI-FI than typical SCI-FI romance

This is one of the most unique science fiction romances I have ever listened to.

The plot: Libby a ballet dancer from Michigan is abducted by aliens and put in a zoo. She is rescued by Reid who is more than what he seems than just another Galactic Captain. He is really a shapeshifting god with a terrible curse hanging over him that only she can help him break (four women have tried before and failed).

This book is over ten hours long and as a lover of space opera myself, I enjoyed the world-building and other characters, especially the evil doctor. The intimate scenes were genuinely consensual and consisted of two chapters of back and forth like cat and mouse, between the two narrators, Reid is a kind and thoughtful lover which makes this alien romance really stand out from the others. I would marry Reid.

The narration was great and the voices really suited the characters. I can recommend this audiobook if you are looking for a different kind of science fiction romance with lots of world-building and different characters.

Take note, this audio is definitely more of a good space opera with romance than a science fiction bodice ripper.

Usual formula

I read a lot of sci-fi romance and they pretty much follow the same formula, alien meets earthling, alien falls in love with the earthling leading to an HEA ending. I look for any unique way that the HEA happens. This story may qualify. I don’t recall reading anything similar to these events. However, the only reason why I finished this book was to see how the HEA happens. It is different but not so entertaining to me. If this should be a series I would not pursue it. There was one part in mid book where two or three chapters were all about multiple erotic scenes. It got boring for me, I ultimately started fast forwarding through those chapters. The erotic scenes should be a mere appetizer not a case of gluttony. The two narrators were good, I just feel like they didn’t have a great story to narrate.

Overall A great listen

This was honestly a great spin on the mate situation with aliens. The plot was really good and I had issues with getting anything done around the house because i would become so engrossed in the storyline. my only issue with the story is that the female after being told a bazillion times that the situation is real and not a fantasy she still towards the end is unsure (eye roll please). i understand that it comes into play for the third challenge, but I wish it was dialed back a bit. The amount of times I eyerolled at this female was kind of ridiculous. I would definitely recommend with the caution that the female is an ungrateful idiot.

At least it's original...

This is just about the strangest sify romance I've ever read. It was not for me at all. The beginning of their sexual relationship was dragged out, annoying, awkward and not very sexy to me. But the language is not bad and if these sex scenes floats your boat, then this book might be for you. At least it's original!

Alien Manumitter

This story is not what I expected. How a planet can make a woman who been though hell and make it worse. As I heard this story all I could think of is how can an race of aliens do this? Not just the one who took her but all the ones around her. Then make her? Makes you never want to meet an one. By the end of the story I wanted to know what happens to her but I wanted to hear that the kidnapping had stoped but that didn’t happen and poor Lilly goes thought more pain to marry the person she has to be with or dies.

Space Opera with Some Hot Scenes

I usually prefer more romance-heavy science fiction stories, however, this was still great. Libby, a human woman, ballet dancer, was abducted from Earth kept in a zoo, then rescued by her alien manumitter. She suffers from PTSD which leads her to question whether her very handsome alien rescuer is really real throughout the book and part of Reid's struggle is to convince Libby that this all is very much real and she must get with the galactic program or she will die.

The narrators did a great job.

If you like the usual bodice rippers of scifi romance, this book is probably not for you. If you like space opera that gets up and personal, I can highly recommend this audiobook.
