About "Lyn Gala"

  1. Lyn Gala

    Lynsey Lyn Gala started writing in the back of her science notebook in third grade and hasn t stopped since Westerns starring men with shady pasts gave way to science fiction with questionable protagonists which eventually gave in to any story with a morally ambiguous character Even the purest heroes have pain and loss and darkness in their hearts, and that s where she likes to find her stories Her characters seek to better themselves and find the happy ending or happier anyway , but it s writing the struggle that inspires her muse When she isn t writing, Lyn Gala teaches in New Mexico.She first cut her teeth on fanfic gen, slash, het, and femslash She prefers to focus on plot mysteries and monsters and disasters, oh my, but sex can and does happen Some of her stories focus on power exchange, bondage or bdsm In her worlds, tops and bottoms are all mature, consenting adults In fact, stories where they aren t squick her badly, so don t expect to find abuse stories in her journal.

  1. My inner linguist went gaga over this book The setting is Prarownt, a planet that s one of earth s trading partners Liam, a human, is a linguist and trader who, we slowly learn, has an abusive past and now lives on the earth s military base on Prarownt Liam doesn t seek power He s happy to learn and serve His favorite trader, Ondry, is a Rownt male, topping seven feet, purple, with a two foot cock, and long tail That sure sounds like the stuff of fetishism, no But don t read this book for kinks [...]


  2. Imaginative, with a clever thematic symmetry to it, and compelling leads.Oh, man did this thing hurt to leave It just ended too soon Just Too Soon Fascinating alien species, and a world I m agog to read of.Marvelous world building Really, nicely done.That cover, though extended silence during which one may safely presume volumes are being spoken, cuttingly Okay, fuck this, I can t stay silent that cover is an abomination Especially when the story s got so much work put into it.It s the spiny fi [...]


  3. More fascinating than I had expected Not that I had a list of expectations, but as soon as I read that Claimings, Tails and other Alien Artifacts involved aliens with tails, my mind sort of went into a frenzy and fed me Oh no Not smutty tail action andtentacles Oh please, not suction cups and slime red alerts I shouldn t have worried Although there s than enough to enjoy if funky appendages going dark places are your kink, please don t let that tail on the cover put you off The aliens in this b [...]


  4. Yeah I don t think gay romance involving aliens is really my thing Reading this felt kind of weird and while at times it was sexy, I just didn t like the story at all I wasn t okay with the enslavement and I seriously wasn t convinced by much, including the romance Some fancy wording proper to the world, it had, but it annoyed me instead of impressing me Bah, short stories are huge hit or misses for me Did not finish at page 60.


  5. I wasn t sure what to expect when I went into this, but I was really impressed The world building here was phenomenal The aliens were so wonderfully alien not just humans with a few tiny differences They were anatomically different to the point of incompatibility, but they were also culturally different Different rules, different nuances, and a language that didn t always translate into the scope of human ideas Liam is a human linguist and a trader on behalf of his military superiors, on Ondry s [...]


  6. Update 5 15 14 after 257th reread That s a rough estimate I cannot remember how many times I ve read this book Conservative estimations lead me to say 4 Maybe 5 I don t know, but needless to say, though I ll say it nonetheless, I LOVE This book.I read it the first time because of the title it s fantastic and the author she s fantastic I read it a second time after I d read a series of unpromising but extremely popular shifter novels and I needed to clean my brain I reread it again when my rabbit [...]


  7. A Hearts On Fire Review Lyn Gala Sci Fi D s Tentaclesex Yes there is a tentaclesex tailsex scene Oh you know this is going to be a great story I expected a story between an human linguist, Liam and a Rownt alien, Ondry, Adding in some hot sex with maybe a tentacle of two Based on the blurb and the author s note, my expectations for this story were surpassed into subspace The author did a wonderful job with creating an excellent Dom Thinking back on some BDSM horror stories I ve read in the recen [...]


  8. This was an amazing gift And a fun one A not that Secret Santa gave me this, thank you Helle And thanks to Sofia for giving me this wonderful nest Now I ll wait till Ondry comes to me, I m waiting impatiently.It was a wonderful surprise There were weird thingsAnd heart melting thingsAnd cute thingsAnd cute thingsMaybe I m out of my mind but I want MORE tailed aliens PS There are some short stories set before book 2 You can skip them but they are interesting to read.


  9. I m not going to mince words here nor am I going to be wordy.To the following This book.Liam in all his beauty as a palteia.Ondry as the perfect chilta for Liam s poor damaged soul.The tail sex.The intimacy.The science.The world building.This quote Palteia are so very rare and valued, and they were looking in the eyes and not seeing the beauty in front of them I like making others jealous So I can promise to always teach you, Liam The leash.The cuffs.Everything they symbolize.Lyn Gala.I m super [...]


  10. CRASH There goes a set of assumptions, broken into tiny little pieces.So, I ogled this cover and was so excited about the prospect of depraved alien sex that honestly, I don t think I deserve such a lovely romance I d have teared up if I wasn t hugging the pillow as I finished it Ondry is the quintessential, gentle giant Sure he s reptilian, a ruthless trader, and practically emotionless or is he That opening scene with Liam and he conducting business definitely clued me in that Ondry was going [...]


  11. Written February 27, 20143.8 Stars for a sub s dream life in a brilliantly colored alien world a tale with a tailI had seen word and genre epithet about Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts as tailsex , pet slave , aliens , BDSM , etc and was a bit nervous before I started to read But so very unnecessary and stupid, of me This is just super cute and a totally pink shimmering beautiful sci fi story This M M sci fi is most easily described as a cute cozy story about being tenderly cared for [...]


  12. To say the least, this book is different but let me assure you, different in a GOOD way.So we have two MCs here, Liam and Ondry Liam is a soldier who s now serving as a linguist and a trader on an alien planet called Prarowont And Ondry is a 7 feet tall alien who have been courting Liam for 5 years and hilariously, poor Liam had no idea and he just thought Ondry was exceptionally friendly comparing his fellow Rownts and when he found out that a new commander from earth has come and the guy had b [...]


  13. Tail Sex we got some TAIL SEX, baby Oh boy, if that above statement makes you uncomfortable, walk away, because the tail is strong with this one This is like a mix between a BDSM book about TPE total power exchange , a yaoi, and a sci fi book about alien cultures and costumes What is ISN T is PWP There is soooo much plot here My inner geek was having a field day at the discussions of words and their origins, social rules in Rownt society, and the whole concept of a palteia It is a fascinating bo [...]


  14. 4.5This was a fantastic sci fi M M story Liam is a military linguist and trader on the Rownt homeworld and Ondry is a seven foot tall, tailed, lilac colored trader and they ve been interacting and trading for the five years that Liam has been on his planet There s a new human commander planet side and this starts a chain reaction of events that forever change Liam and Ondry s relationship.There is a bit of D s conversation but that never plays out physically within the story This is pure sci fi [...]


  15. 5 shiny stars for the pleasant surprise and the wisdom it bestowed on me Although the story was somewhat unusual, it was both unique and most original I find the ideas and concept utilize in this story to explore the D S dynamics in a BDSM relationship to be very thought provoking and insightful too I felt enlightened.For once we get to see that being a sub does not mean losing respect and self worth And being a good dom does not require a heavy handed approach Instead patience, attentiveness an [...]


  16. I had my doubts regarding this book and thanks to the stupid cover that almost has nothing to do with the amazing story inside, I had assumed this is a suitable read for times that I feel like reading something kinky and erotic IT IS NOT Thank you my dear friend, Sheziss, for correcting my assumption and motivating me to start this wonderful story.Let s see Where to begin I have read several books that fall into the category of Bdsm and depending on my mood, I have either enjoyed them or I have [...]


  17. 4 awwww stars This was such a great read I loved it And actually not what I expected, and I mean that in a good way The title was a bit scary I mean Claimings, tails and Other Alien Artifacts That puts all kinds of thoughts in your head, doesn t it Specially if you haven t read anything like this before, like me But when I read about the two MC doing actual trading it shines a new and innocent light on it It was a sweet and fascinating story.Liam is a human man, and he was a sweetheart All he wa [...]



  18. Re read August 2017Loved it even on my second read, so bumping it up half a star 4.5 starsNow, this was a very different take on BDSM This book was just amazing Angst free and with a lot of feeeeels.I really liked Liam He was just such a sweet soul I wanted to hug him and never let him go And Ondry, a true dominant master, yet so tender and loving towards Liam This story revolves around Liam, a human sergeant stationed on the planet of the Rownt He is responsible for the trading business the mi [...]


  19. Great little tale I wish it was longer, but that s really my greediness I loved the world and the characters, and wouldn t mind But unlike so many other novellas, the story works perfectly in the space it has In fact, it packs an extraordinary amount into 100 pages.I generally find alien abduction stories to be paradoxes of the unpleasant kind it s such a great premise, but the books disappoint often than they satisfy, relying on a short list of overly familiar tropes than half seem to be tal [...]


  20. Ok, that was WAY than what I expected I m thinking, capture, slave, forced tail sex, D s shenanigans, etc What I got was a cultural anthropologygasm and a completely unique perspective on a D s relationship.First, I thought the world building, and actually I should say, culture building, was fascinating and extremely well done The Rownt culture was very interesting and reading the exchanges between Liam and Ondry was fun Once Liam was transferred over to Ondry the really gripping stuff started [...]


  21. This completely surprised me I was expecting another frothy tentacles yay fantasy nothing wrong with those, btw and instead got a very well written sci fi tale about intercultural interspecies understanding and connection Liam, a human linguist is lead trader with the alien race, the Rownt For five years he has been improving his command of the tricky Rownt language whilst dealing with Ondry, a super ninja super hot Rownt trader with a talented, extra prehensile appendage take another guess, not [...]


  22. Holy shit This is a perfect total power exchange without the sado or the masochism All about safety, comfort, care and trust I was not expecting any of that from a Alien Human romance With so many books out there trying to bank on the 50 Shitastic Shades of Twatbag phenomena, I ve grown bored with the BDSM themes that have been so prevalent in erotica the last few years But I surprisingly really LOVED this story And to top it all off there s super hot alien tail sex Yes TAIL SEX Did I mention it [...]


  23. crosses fingers Please, please, please let there be tail sex.post read ETAYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TAILSEX No, seriously, though Beyond just the tailsex, which earns this book several points of awesomeness, this book is great The characters are all amazingly real The emotions are explored in a non contrived manner More importantly, I love the way Gala explored the ideas of differences in culture That s a phenomenon I ve noticed myself in personal translation projects how damn difficult it is to transla [...]


  24. This is something remarkable in M M Sci Fi with a human alien romantic pair It actually makes sense to me, and feels plausible, not contrived These aliens are wonderfully alien, and yet the love story works.I like Sci Fi, and don t mind sometimes suspending disbelief But unless you subscribe to the Star Trek version of aliens as humanoids with some makeup, there is no real reason why sex with a human should have any appeal for an alien, or vice versa What are the odds that evolution would create [...]


  25. I received this book from my Secret Santa, the lovely Jenn, because she felt I needed a nudge to give it a try and step out side of the box It s turned out she was right So I did my part and convinced a few friends here on GR to do a buddy read with me and am I glad I did Claimings, Tails and Other Alien Artifacts was an unexpected treat and one with depth to it than I was expecting The author is Lyn Gala so I was pretty sure going into this that I d enjoy it What I didn t expect was that it wo [...]


  26. This book was well outside my comfort zone, but I m really glad I read it and I really enjoyed it, like I do most of Lyn Gala s work.As Ms Gala states in the author s note at the beginning of the book, this book was born out of an online discussion of what a person might want in a Dom in real life, and how fantasy and reality rarely match.The first 75% of the story is about how human linguist in space Liam becomes to property of alien Ondry and how they relate to one another as they work out the [...]


  27. MY FIRST TAIL SEX BOOK This was such a sweet little story Find out what my fellow unicorns and I thought about it during our March 2014 Happy Hour Chat Stay tuned for details


  28. The world building, the D s relationship, Ondry, Liam, the TAIL SEX, me like it all Good thing there s gonna be a sequel cuz I want .Thank you Rosa and Sofia for harassing me suggesting I read this book.


  29. Back to back Buddy read with MarteThis was hard to rate for me I don t like it enough but I don t hate it In GR rating, it s only 2 stars I loved the part where Liam Ondry finally came together and Liam recognized his submissive nature again I actually found their love scene very hot.But the other parts It s like reading a science textbook or even a tourist guide map I felt like a lost tourist checking out how local people converse using their native language while reading this I don t know Mayb [...]
