Publisher's Summary

Ondry and Liam have settled into a good life, but their trading is still tied up with humans, and humans are always messy. When political changes at the human base lead Ondry to attempt a difficult trade, the pair find themselves entangled in human affairs. Liam wants to help the people he left and the worlds being torn apart. He also wants to serve Ondry with not only the pleasures of the nest but also by bringing human profits.

Ondry has no hope of understanding human psychology in general, he only knows that he will hold onto his palteia with the last breath in his body, and he'd like to keep his status and his wealth too. Unfortunately, new humans bring new conflicts and he is not sure how to protect Liam. He does know one thing that humans seem to constantly forget - that the peaceful Rownt are predators and when their families are threatened, Rownt become deadly killers. Liam is his family, and Ondry will protect him with his last breath...assuming that he can recognize the dangers in time to do so. 

Contains mature themes.

"Logic clearly dictates that the needs of many outweigh the needs of few." ~ Spock

" Or the one. " ~ Captain Kirk , Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Lyn Gala's stories and John Solo narration of them , are a match made in heaven or in this case, in out space, on the Planet Rownt.

When it comes to book narration, John Solo is in a class of its own. He delivered an outstanding performance. All characters main and secondary had distinctives and recognizable voices and speech patterns. On some pivotal , intense situations and dialogue, he injected so much emotion and depth that my heartache ; it was impossible not to cry.

Words fail me , when I try to articulate the overwhelming feelings of joy , satisfaction and pleasure , listening of how Ondry and Liam's lives and those they come in contact , are progressing , since book 1; when they became Chilta and Palteia to each other . Considering, Liam left the Army , the human base , to live with Ondry, be his family and part of the Rownt society, many things are changing.

In Assimilation, Love, and Other Human Oddities , world building continues to grow and expand. Lyn Gala give us vivid and detailed descriptions of life around the MC . Their interactions with other humans , Grandmothers, traders from another towns and even with dangerous and deadly local fauna are told in such a way , that by the end of this book , I felt , I been , physically , in Rownt myself.

Many things are being reevaluated and are developing around Liam and Ondry . There is an air of uncertainty and they all feel something big is going to happen.
That what may be , good or bad ; some things will never change , not now or in a 1000 years , that's Ondry's devotion, love and commitment to Liam. And he will do anything and everything to protect him , specially from , other humans.

This is book 2 of an interconnected 4 book series that need to be listen/read in chronological order.

Don't think about it, any longer , get this book. It's entertaining, interesting, thoughtful, original, smartly written, addictive and memorable. And it will give you ALL the feels.
In my opinion, is with a doubt, the Best , Sci-fi Interplanetary Human -Aliens Romance and Adventure Audiobook , you will ever listen. You'll thank me later.

I willing and happily give my precious audio credits to any book written by Lyn Gala and narrated by John Solo and that's a high compliment from a certified credit hoarder as me.
