Summary

Carina

He is a barbarian. A savage. I came to his world as a spy - and I was caught. Alone and defenseless, my fate is in his hands. He captured me, punished me, and claimed me as his mate.

I promised myself that I would never yield, that I would resist and escape, but as he trains me to serve him, I begin to wonder if one day I will gladly call him my master.

Aldric

When I saw the little one in our midst, I was drawn to her beauty. She broke our laws and must pay the price, but I will let no harm come to her. She will belong to me, mine to enjoy as I please, and soon she will know the pleasure of surrendering to a warrior's mastery of her body.

She is headstrong and defiant, but it will be my privilege and honor to tame her.

Publisher's Note: Aldric: A Sci-Fi Warrior Romance includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this audiobook.

A great story!

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook! I thought it has a good storyline with spy to lovers, which is different from most of the story I listen to. I’m definitely a big fan for mild/hardcore BDSM books. I find the story that the author (Jane Henry) writes are fabulous and she has a wonderful imagination. Especially when it comes to unique characters and worlds.
The narrator’s do a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each. I definitely recommend this book and the narrator’s!

My Possessive Warrior

Let me start by saying this was a great book. I loved the story- The Narration was awesome- I had a little bit of a hard time staying immersed as the writing was a tad formal for me. Don't get me wrong, it was great- It just didn't flow in my head as well as I would have like (verbage wise). I thought the story line was unique, captivating and steamy. All of which I loved. Jeffrey's voice gets the book extra credit :)

Sexy story with fabulous narration

If you're looking for a hot, exciting and enjoyable Sci-Fi romance then you can't beat Jane Henry's imaginative world. Her vivid worldbuilding skills are awesome as she paints fictional worlds, hot Alpha Warriors and the feisty women they claim. The narration was fabulous and I love having both male and female narrators.

Aldric and Carina are a hit on fire

Jane Henry you are amazing and I love you for this book. Hearing Jeffrey D. Peterson voice is to die for I was so in lobe with every page and power voice. He did amazing job and I was so wanting more of his voice. Ali Peterson she did her thing I couldn't get over her voice either , she had such a voice that I was not done hearing it. Both of them are amazing and I look forward to more of these two. The are my favorite Narrators on audible. Awesomely job!!!!!

Entertaining overall ....but

I'm torn on this story. I liked it and didn't like it at the same time. I was really looking forward to this book and was kind of disappointed. After the first time I listened to this book I waited a few weeks and then re-listened to see if my opinion would change. You know some days you are just in the mood for certain types of stories and when a book isn't what you expected it was going to be it sours your whole opinion. Even after my second listen I'm going to leave my review as I wrote it after the first listen.

While it's entertaining and enjoyable overall it's basically just a Dom/Submissive story wrapped up in an Alien world. Although it is an interesting and creative world. It just wasn't my cup of tea. If you don't like really submissive woman and a Dom who punishes for the slightest infraction this is not the book for you.

The story in a nutshell is R-482/Carina is sent to Avalere on a spying mission. She is captured and mated to Aldric. He enlightens her on the true oppressive nature of her planet and introduces feeling back into her life.

He's a alien Dom without all the fancy toys. And like any Dom he has control issues. Actually it seems to be a whole planet of Dom's. Woman are subservient. Yet prized. I get he is "training" her in their ways. While I don't have a problem with spanking in my stories there is a fine line. Spanking for every minute detail/infraction is tiring after a while. Some of the "punishment" was understandable, but he uses humiliation and fear to control her. His intention is to break her. Personally, I don't find that sexy in the least. Although, thankfully things never get too intense or rough.

Carina is confused by all the things she has begun to feel. Even though she is a grown woman in many ways mentally she is a child due to practices of her planet Feelings, personal contact etc. are suppressed on her planet. What Aldric teaches her about relationships is all she knows. She doesn't particularly like the treatment but craves the physical contact.

Alien, Warrior, Prince, King or whatever Aldric just didn't come across as all that likable. I kept waiting for him to find a bit of his inner "softie". That never happened. Once a control freak always a control freak. My lord, got old as well

Jeffery D. Peterson and Ali Peterson did a fantastic job with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to either of these two narrators at all let alone in a dual narration story. Their narration is what kept me listening in the beginning. Both have nice voices that are easy to listen to for long periods of time. His deep and her soft play off each other perfectly. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Fantastic character voice's. The transition between characters was smooth, seamless and perfect even when the characters are having a conversation between themselves. All dual narration stories should be done this well. They brought the characters, their emotions and the story to life. I will be looking for more books they narrate in the future. Definitley 5 stars on the narration.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily provided this review.

Great!

The Petersons do a wonderful job with the narration. You can hear the emotion in their voices!
And, of course, the story itself is great. I am looking forward to more in the series!

Great start to a new series!!

I definitely enjoyed this story. Even though it had a lot of spanking in it, it both characters still loved each other. They both were doing what they felt was right even though it was not what their partner wanted. But in the end it all worked out. The narration was fantastic. I loved that the male did all male voices and the female did all female voices. Made the story so much better. I will definitely be buying the rest of the series.

Good Narration

A good sci-fi romance! A good story but a little repetive with the obey, spank, repeat theme. I really liked the male/female narration. Overall, I would reccomend this audiobook

Lots of discipline...

When I saw this was a Sci-fi romance I was excited to listen to it. Then I discovered that this was more of a domestic discipline story than anything else. If you enjoy lots of spanking and alpha domination you’d probably like this audiobook. The story itself was pretty simple. The one thing I didn’t like was the female narrator seemed to coo at the hero all the time, making her sound kind of stupid.

"You will obey me, Little One."

Aldric: A Sci-Fi Romance by Jane Henry is the first book in the Heroes of Avalere series. Although I've read books by Jane Henry, I have not read any of the Heroes of Avalere books. However, if the rest of the books are like this one, I may need to read more.
R-482 is a spy sent to Avalere from a rival planet. She is caught by Aldric, the warrior king, who decides to punish the spy himself and keep her for his own. He begins by spanking her in public and takes her to his quarters to begin her training. The story unfolds as R-482 begins to embrace the humanity that her planet had tried to eliminate. Aldric names her Carina and teaches her the beauty and joy of her body and "coupling". Because she is also headstrong, he has to teach her to obey him. He does that by punishing her when she disobeys. They have to work together to save Aldric's sister but take time to fall in love.
This audiobook is narrated by both Jeffrey D. Peterson and Ali Peterson. Mr. Peterson voices Aldric and the other male characters. Ms. Peterson voices Carina and the other female characters. This is the first audiobook I've listened to with two narrators and in this case it worked wonderfully well! Ms. Peterson gives Carina a childlike innocence in some things, but never forgets she is a spy sent to learn the secrets of Avalere. Mr. Peterson gives Aldric a growling, commanding tone. In all honesty, hearing Mr. Peterson (as Aldric, of course) growl, "You will obey me, Little One." as he threatens to spank Carina is seriously, seriously, seriously hot. It kicks up the butterflies and ignites the lady bits all at the same time. It's well done, well acted, and totally engrossing. While the ending of the story is a little too predictable, the overall plot is good. The descriptions of the planets and explanations of the differences between them is fascinating. The punishment and coupling scenes are very descriptive and arousing.
Overall, I highly recommend Aldric: A Sci-Fi Romance, especially the audiobook.
