2.0 out of 5 starsI would not recommend this read
Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2017
I'm totally confused on how this book got so many great ratings. I couldn't even finish it because it felt like a waste of my time. There was no connection or sparks I felt when reading about Ky and Dani or as he liked to call her "Little girl". That, in itself, was creepy and I couldn't get past it throughout the entire book. Ky NEVER called Dani anything but "little girl" and so when it came to intimate moments, reading those words creeped me out because who wants to picture a "little girl." The book is about a Kindred named Ky landing on Dani's planet were the Males rule and the women obey. Dani is headstrong and can't seem to digest that she will never be anything more than a mere female in her world with no rights in anything, not even rights to herself. She will always be owned by her father or husband when married. Ky is imprisoned on her planet and he is the total opposite of any male she has ever met. He is, for one, not blue. And he respects women which fascinates her. Dani sneaks into his cell and gets to know him. She later finds out she is to be married to a ruthless man, so she plots to escape with Ky, a man she barely knows. The issue I'm having with this story isn't just one thing. The dialogue is sub par, and I don't feel like Ky and Dani's interactions are meaningful enough for me to believe that they love each other in a span of a few days. And then he's so huge and she's so small makes it hard for me to picture them together as physically compatible. I picture a tiny little girl, which is due to Ky's persistence to call Dani "little girl" instead of her real name or some other form of endearment. And then a Giant for a man. Next, I love reading interracial romances. Sure, Dani is a "creamy brown" and Ky is white, but throughout the story I didn't feel like this was an interracial book. I was curious how the author would bring in an interracial relationship with beings that weren't even human. It's difficult to pull off when the characters aren't even the same species. The book barely touched on interracial topics. Thus, in my opinion, the interracial aspect was mute. There was a lack of execution when writing this book. I really enjoy reading romances were the characters are developed and so are their relationships and I definitely didn't feel that in this book. Sure, Dani's chauvinistic planet was annoying but I didn't feel for her issues like I should of. I didn't feel for Ky either when he was imprisoned. Overall, it's the author's duty to help me build and connect to the characters in my mind. However, the story I built in my mind was lacking. I would not recommend this book.
Enjoyed this story a little more as it was a little more like the kindred stories I'm familiar with, but it was good that it had a difference with a Touch Kindred. While I'm not entirely comfortable with the endearment of "little girl" as it seems kind of pedo, I'm glad that Dani wasn't a completely helpless character and at least old enough to know what she was doing. It was also suggested she had some some brains, though that could have been demonstrated more. I did like the nifty trick with the magnetized field in the cell.
I'm more excited about the next story as it promises to be exciting and more action filled hopefully. I also hope Sarah gets some courage and spunk to finally be her own person free from what seems to be a cult.
Freeing the prisoner was another solid story, with a happily ever after :)
Dani and Ky made me smile right from the beginning. I really love how the kindred admire and revere all women. It doesn't matter your shape, size of color you deserved to be worshiped. Enter Dani, princess of a wood where women are treated as lesser, objects to be used and abused. Dani is smart, head strong and wants more out of life. Ky is a touch kindred on a mission when his vessel is brought down and he's imprisoned.
Dani hears about the big kindred and their beliefs especially the one about women. She sneaks in to learn more about him and that all it takes for the bond to form. The fire ignites between them and some how through some excellent action adventure they rescue each other and bond for all eternity. Great read
2.0 out of 5 starsSweet story, but not very believable
Reviewed in the United States on November 3, 2017
Sweet story, but not very believable. This one actually bothered me a bit because the hero is so worried about not "raping" the female lead... that it causes them to not get together until the end. Spoiler alert: The Author has a scene where the female lead sort of "rapes" the male so that she can declare herself not a virgin....double standard much? Is it not considered rape when the man is non-consenting but turned on? I also found the use of the endearment "Little One" a bit creepy, there were a lot of descriptions of her being child like, and too young... Meh

I have bought and read every Kindred and Kindred Tales book and this is the only book that disappointed me.
Ky gives the impression that he is on the shallow end of the Kindred gene pool - getting captured, leaving a defenseless female alone, going on about lack of food and water, abandoning a mate. Ky just seemed "off" to me. Dani at least had a head on her shoulders and would have made a great ruler, if she had been born a male (due to her planets viewpoints on women), but trying to rape someone does not make for a good person (even though she was trying to protect herself from an evil little man).
The story had so much potential but for me the only redeeming light was the lead up to Healing the Broken (which is a fantastic story and highly recommened).
As I said before I love your books,but I do wish more of the ladies had more fight in them then most do in these storys.most are weak and afraid In most of the story's I love a lady with fight in her !!

This one is one of my favorites. It wasn't too long to fit into a busy schedule. It wasn't incredibly stupid midway through by the heroine doing something everyone knows shouldn't be done. Dani was sharp as a tac and remained so consistently through the story line and Ky's character remained solidly good from beginning to end. Both endearingly sweet. My kind of story.
5.0 out of 5 starsFreeing the Prisoner: A Kindred Tales Novel: (Alien Warrior I/R BBW Science Fiction
Reviewed in the United States on March 4, 2018
I have read nearly all of the Kindred series, it was one of the first Alien love series. I was hooked on everything about Kindred beings. This was entertaining and interesting to boot. It reinforces home genital these giant beings are. They could be have mean and evil but they are sensitive and caring. Even Kyle (Ky) a touch Kindred was mistreated he didn't return the favor. He could have destroyed them without much effort. Danella saw his goodness and she wanted to help him. I enjoyed reading this book.

Ky and Danni met when she was walking the secret passages of the castle in which she lives and finds him in the dungeon where he has been captured under false pretenses by her father's guard. He is touch Kindred who we were introduced in a previous story and is yet another brilliant idea of Evangeline's. Other reviewers have written about the story so I will just say it is well written and exciting and the sensual scenes are wonderful. Evangeline's imagination is off the scale and improves with every story.

Loving these Kindred Tales Novels in between the larger Kindred books. They are still just as interesting and full of excitement. I love the word of the Kindred Evangeline Anderson takes you on a journey, sometimes to different planets where anything can happen and most often does. Then there is the Kindred Mother Ship and oh boy who wouldn’t want to live there. I would recommend these books and to anyone who hasn’t read them. What are you waiting for! You are definitely missing out big time!!!
