Publisher's Summary

Carter isn't sure what to call his two alien protectors. Friends? Boyfriends? Mates? 

Or merely indiscriminate lovers with sexy purrs and tangling tails? 

He would be lost without them, he knows that. When their home is invaded by a dangerous new kind of alien slaver, they strike out into the jungle. He depends on them for food, protection, a direction to walk in. He's helpless even for shelter and warmth. 

Thankfully, his alien lovers seem devoted, but why? Carter wishes he knew their names or anything else. Like whether the attachment he's feeling is returned. 

With aliens, you can't make assumptions. 

Wouldn't it be nice if he could just ask? 

Contains mature themes.

Even better than the first book!

I loved the first book (and gave a more detailed review there so I'm just gushing here), and bought this one on pre-order because of how excited I was for it. And let me tell you, Eileen Glass and Joel Leslie did not disappoint. It was an amazing listen and added more wonderfulness to the story, characters, and setting. I was left both delighted at just how much I LOVED it, and wilting at the fact I have to wait for who knows how long for the next one. If you liked the first book, you'll probably like this one just as much, if not more. I listened to it in a day, and it's over 12 hours long so, yes, I was listening All. Day. Long. Even in the bathroom. And if I could've taken it into the shower with me, I would have. I'm also proud to say I was the first all 5-star rating on this book (though couldn't write a review until later). You'll love this book so stop hesitating and just buy it!

Joel Leslie is amazing!

Joel Leslie is now my internal voice for Carter, Siel, Pykh, and Auk - it was so funny how he pronounced some of the non-translated brain bot words. This book is amazing - definitely not a series to miss.

Surprisingly Enjoyable

To explain the title a little, after having listened to several MPreg M/M stories, I have pretty much determined that I am not a fan of the genre. As a reviewer on another book has observed, they tend to be M/F romance stories with the female gender (but not attitudes and "frailties") swapped to a (feminine) male. However, this series, being placed on a SciFi theme, intrigued me enough to chance it (I like SciFi ;-) , and I am glad that I did. I also liked that the "story" had some meat to it (no pun intended) in that there actually was one separate from the "romance" part of it. Another saving grace for it was that the MPreg part, although strongly hinted at, did not manifest itself (at least so far). I am really hoping that, if this series continues, it never does as while I can suspend disbelief on a couple of fronts (e.g., Space, ETs, tech, etc.), I would find it extremely difficult to believe that all parties are biologically compatible. So please Ms. Glass, do not go there. The *expectation* that it might be possible is fine for Seil and his people to have, but if you somehow make it biologically possible for a human male to give birth on that world, you will loose a fan. This now brings me to the one, sort of, negative comment that I have, that being the narration. My first introduction to Mr. Leslie was a story that involved a man learning that he was accidentally switched at birth and the family that he was raised with was, well unloving, is about as kind a summary that I can make. In such a story, a narrator who's voice contained a slight tremor, as though he might break down a cry at any moment, was appropriate, if a little tiring and annoying after several hours. However after listening to several other books narrated by him, I have come to the conclusion that this is an ingrained quality of his voice, and one that I unfortunately really do not care for. While I will not dismiss a book read by him solely on that basis, I will think twice about purchasing one that he narrates. So I was tempted to pass this one over, but the storyline intrigued me. That being said, I have to admit that he did a fairly good job here, either that or I am now becoming more numb to those qualities that annoyed me earlier ;-) So, Mr. Leslie, I really do like the timber of your voice and I think, in general, you do a good job at different character voices but, if you could loose that trembling, almost going to cry, aspect you would have a solid fan.

Even better than the first book

We continue to follow the struggles and challenges that Pykh, Siel and Carter face as they escape from their captivity and learn more about each other and the planet they are surviving in. The gradual building of the aliens culture and history is masterfully done, but it's the characters' loyalty and devotion to each other (and their sense of humor, especially Carter's) that are the winning qualities of the series. Looking forward for a sequel. Especially since the book ends in cliff hanger. The narrator continues to do excellent job, which was especially challenging here due to the mis-translations sounds.

A Great Second Chapter In This Story!

I love all the voices in this story! They are so velvety to my ears! There is lots of adventure as Carter, Siel, and Pykh continue to escape from the bugs and meet up with members of Siel's people. The ending once all three of them are safe and together is so sweet and romantic! There's lots of bits of humor throughout. The one thing that was a little bothersome was the exploration of the language where the pronunciation of untranslated words was a little hard on my ears, but it was just a minor issue. If you enjoy alien and human adventure romances, I'd highly recommend this!

Didn't quite cash in on its potential

I liked the first book in this series so much (surprisingly, given the wretched title) that the decision to buy and listen to the very long second audiobook was easy. However, about a third of the way through the book, things started to go wrong for me. First of all, I get that in a book where people come together from all different backgrounds, and one of the three main characters not being able to communicate verbally with the other two, there are gonna be misunderstandings. But in this book, there are MISUNDERSTANDINGS. And not just the human and the aliens, who, again, can't speak. The other two misunderstand each other constantly, and when there are other characters introduced, everyone misunderstands them, and they misunderstand our trio. For the entire twelve and a half hour audiobook, nobody knows what the heck anyone else is thinking or trying or doing, and for me, at least, it gets real old, real quick. In fact, even when our human hero, Carter, successfully learns their language, there are STILL misunderstandings. And these are predicated on one of the least believable writing tropes, over and over--starting to ask a question and getting interrupted, and then not following through on the question. Or, alternatively, not asking the question in the first place. Time and time again we hear the phrase "I wanted to know _________, BUT I DIDN'T ASK." Well, why didn't you? Things could all be cleared up in a matter of minutes. In addition, I know I'm in a very, very small minority here, but I can't stand the character of Pikh, and he just gets worse and worse throughout the novel. I get fed up with his stupid childlike wonder (and tantrums) about thirty minutes into the book, and I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to find him adorable. I don't. The book is well written--much more than I would have expected from a series with such ludicrous titles--but I'm gonna throw in the towel after this second book, sorry.

This was a great follow up

This book has really gotten me to start falling in love with these characters. Im so obsessed with Pikh and always get giddy when a chapter comes up from his point of view. Hes fun, lovably dumb but smart in his own. The sexy stuff is also perfectly spaced out and gets me even more invested. Its tricky to put sex in a book and balance it with getting the reader to care about it without losing track of the story and hoping it also helps build the relationship for the characters and of course to arouse. This author does it all perfectly and i will buy any book she does now. Love love loved it.

Book 2 Kept My Attention and Left Me Wanting More!

I purchased the three Human Omega audiobooks (Human Omega: Discovered on a Slave Planet, Human Omega: Trapped in an Alien Jungle, and Human Omega: Babied By His Guardian Mates) on a lark as something enjoyable to listen while I was working out. Boy, was I surprised! They were much more enjoyable than I'd hoped. Glass not only created a compelling SciFi world, but she did so while conjuring up the most enchanting characters I'd read in ages. I couldn't stop listening to Joel Leslie read the books, even after my workouts ended. Simply put, Joel Leslie was FANTASTIC. He brought the books to life in what should be an award-winning production. Leslie made these stories everything you'd want from an audiobook. He took Eileen Glass' talented work and brought it to life, something only an extremely talented voice actor could do. I highly recommend listening to all three, and I, for one, cannot wait for Book Four in the Pykh series to be released. I hope its soon. I think you'll agree. On a side note...if I could offer any advice to Ms. Glass, it would be the naming of the books. While the names are technically accurate, I think she might capture a broader audience with more engaging titles. It's the tiniest of critiques for such an amazing series.

Good conclusion to the story

This is a good conclusion to the Pykh series. It lacks a little of the power of the first book and I felt that the author could have wrapped things up more quickly. Your interest is maintained because you've become invested in the three main characters through the first book. This book introduces other characters - I think this is what makes it lose some of its punch. The other characters are far more domestic. Also there isn't the sense of imminent doom that there is in the first book. Never-the-less Joel Leslie's narration is fantastic. He has a different voice for each of the main characters - each convincing. Enjoyed it.
