Product Description

Book 10 in the Clans of Kalquor series

Betrayal. War. The sins of the fathers are visited on the sons and the woman they love.

Tasha Salter is caught in a quandary: she wants to fall in love, but past trauma keeps her from commitment. The only people she trusts are her family, especially in this time of treason against the Kalquorian Empire. When she and her three-year-old cousin are abducted by the revolt’s shadowy leader, matters of the heart no longer apply. She finds herself in a battle for their survival.

Clan Falinset left Kalquor in self-imposed exile when their parents’ illegal activities threatened their honor. Dramok Falinset, Imdiko Nur, and Nobek Wekniz only want to be left alone to live their quiet lives. Yet the drumbeat of war is sounding as traitorous forces prepare to attack Kalquor. Worse still, the revolt’s leader wants his son Falinset at his side and refuses to take no for an answer.

A wild escape attempt throws Tasha and her young charge into the reluctant care of Clan Falinset. With betrayal in their past and war in their future, there is no reason to find love. Yet passion flares between those who should be enemies, leading Clan Falinset and Tasha to realize that they are not on opposite sides after all. Together they have the chance to heal.

Yet the sins of the fathers have come to rest on the shoulders of their sons. Falinset must make an impossible choice: bow to his father’s blackmail and turn traitor to the Empire or doom his clan by saving the young princess of Kalquor and the woman he’s fallen in love with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed 25 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As usual Tracy St.John is one of the best writers of her genre. With that being said this book was boring. I found myself skipping over almost all of the romance because for the 1st time the overall back story was waaaayyyyyy better than the actual romance portions. Tasha was the boring twin from the beginning so I was hoping for a clan to bring her out of her shell. Instead we got some of the most cowardly group of aliens to ever cross the Clan of Kalquor pages. They weren't even all that smart. I won't give away spoilers but they live right next to Maf and can't even figure out hostages are being kept until someone tells them??? Give me a break. The twins were the least favorite heroines of this entire series so hopefully the next woman will have a better story line. Truly dissapointed and but hopeful the next installment will be closer to the previous 8 books and less like book 9 and 10.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 7 August 2016
By Homegrown CountryGal - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book series has gone down a little in my opinion. This book started out well. I loved the introduction scene and then it goes on to give you an idea of the issues Tasha, the royal family and Kalquor have to overcome. The story was really well written on the front end.

I try not to give spoilers so it makes this review hard to write. Bear with me.

After it gets going a bit, you get the story from the kidnappers and the victims point of view but a very overall description of the imperial clan's reaction to their 3 yr old daughter being taken. There was a lot of overview of how the kingdom was affected in general but, it was missing the details that I feel it should have touched on regarding the imperial clan.

There was a scene in which the empress breaks down completely in a moment of sharing with another matara (don't want to give too much away). That was so well written. As a mother I could almost feel her gut wrenching pain at someone taking her child. After that's where it started to go downhill.

The Dramok of the clan that ends up aiding Tasha is a jackass in my opinion. He didn't give off that dramok type personality at all to me. Then the sex scenes. I'm not into all the BDSM crap. If you are, you'll love this book. I like a little dominance but this book takes it to a WHOLE new level. It was just really creepy and overdone to me. I ended up skipping through the last couple of sex scenes. I can suffer through most of those scenes with a few eye rolls but, this book took it to a whole new level. And why do we get books where the men fall in love with each other but when they find their mataras suddenly they are more like co-workers? A little tenderness, or kissing shouldn't offend the naysayers too much. Anyway.....

Their time in hiding was just looooong and drawn out. That part of the story was weak and didn't make sense to me. They last part of the book picked up again for a bit. Then once again, it let me down.

A specific telling of the rescue of the princess and reunion with her parents was non-existent. Really? I wanted to read of the emotional reunion between parents and child. To read of their gratefulness to the surprising person who made it happen. NOT. That was the ONLY reason I kept reading the book to the end and felt duped. Instead, it was basically a general overview of the kingdom and what happened with loose ends.

Don't know that I'll be buying anymore of this series. Very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, not her best book 7 May 2016
By Guy Fawkes - Published on

I have read all the kalquor books and this is my least favorite. I felt that Tracy St. John rushed the book to press, resulting in an inferior book compared to the rest.

The book felt like a novella compared to her other books. It was quite short. The main characters were underdeveloped. Out of all the kalquorian males she has written about the 3 presented had the weakest personalities. Why would Falinset continue living next door to his biological father? Why would Wekniz, as a Nobel male, allow his clan to be threatened by Maf? Would Maf get the message Falinset didn't want anything to do with him by now? And Felom, the pickiest female alive, chose to sleep with and have a child by the physically imperfect Maf? What happened to Tasha's desire to be a sustainable architect? And nobody in the entire Kalquorian empire, which keeps decreasing year by year, that Maf is the Basma by now? And really, the kalquorian males have earth females with uteruses. Can't a brilliant evil scientist figure how to gene splice kalquorian embryos, cure the genetic defect and force the earth women to become surrogates to carry the next generation of kalquorians. That is a far more despicable plan than letting the kalquorian empire die and turn to dust.

Of course we aren't really reading these books for the story plots, but there were a lot of holes in the story. I was far more intrigued by the sex scene in chapter one and those characters, than Clan Falinset. That's who I wanted to see the story about. The sex scenes were rather hum drum, not as exciting or kinky as in other books.

Tracy take your time writing the books. I would rather wait for a well written book rather getting something sooner.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Alien Romance series EVER! 17 September 2016

This series is one of my favorites, each book gets better and better. The characters have depth and the plot is enough to keep you reading, not wanting to put the book down. The sex scenes are steamy and OH My...three aliens to clan and love at once! However, the stories in these series isn't sex with paragraphs around the sex; the novels have what it takes to make Great read - the love scenes just make the books that much more. I was a little surprised this book opens with sex and the heroine, but it doesn't take away from the story as it's written with understanding as you read more chapters...and this book had more one on one scenes with the hero's than previous books - the we author knows how to write them to keep the reader wanting more- can't wait for the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Book by Tracy St. John so Far 11 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been reading Tracy's novels since the beginning and I've enjoyed watching her truly blossom as an outstanding writer. Unlike some of the other Erotic Science Fiction writers, Mrs. St. John diversifies her content and gives unique characters with every new book.
The Clans of Kalquor series is one that I absolutely can't put down and Alien Hostage seems to be her best one yet. The story development is extensive, to say the least, and her attention to detail is astounding. She manages to connect every aspect of the plots of each of her books, dating back to the first, with skillful precision and uninterrupted flow. It was truly a remarkable read which I encourage others to learn from.
Congratulations, Tracy! I look forward to your next novel with eager anticipation.
