Lately I’ve really gotten into alien books where human women are taken from Earth to live on another planet. It’s so much fun to read about a whole new universe and creatures. This is the second series I’ve read where a group of girls are taken at the same time and each book does this rewind thing and I’m not sure how much I like it.
If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, (which I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t because I’m super vague) basically what I’m referring to is when a group of women are taken or arrive on the foreign planet all at the same time. The first book follows one women through different events that sometimes include the other girls. The second book rewinds to the arrival of all the girls (sometimes a little before to tell how she came about to be in that situation) but this time from a different girls point of view and it continues. Most of the time the “big events” the reader already knows either what’s going to happen or what happens after because of the previous books. The third book, you guessed it, rewinds again to the arrival to tell the story through another woman’s eyes.
I’ve only read up to half of the fourth book of this series (I believe there are 7?) and I like the women in these series because they are all very likable and badass and trust me when I say I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to the males in this book. SMOKING HOT! Let’s just say I envy the girls in this series.
Basically, these 5 women are taken from Earth (1 not so much taken but you’ll see) and aren’t too happy about their new living arrangements. After traveling through space for 2 weeks they arrive on Valdier, a planet that over the centuries have had a significant decline in female births. Each woman has a crazy past and their own unique personality.
I feel like I would’ve really really loved this series if it didn’t keep rewinding, because I feel like nothing major happens without it being revealed in a previous book (because it all follows the same timeline). However, don’t let that deter you from reading this series because there are things you find out about each individual woman that the other books don’t. Also, each male I would say are all different from one another too which kept things interesting.
If you have already read this series and have loved it then I suggest reading the Dragon Lords by Michelle M. Pillow. Didn’t realize until now that they basically have the same title lol! This one is a bit different because the women aren’t taken they actually signed up to become brides since this planet basically has no female births. I really liked this series but it has the similar layout of the Dragon Lords of Valdier with the whole rewind thing.
