    Another set of otherworldy hunks. I'm IN! This time, we're meeting the air elementals and their, well, kinda sad existence. I mean, ALL the Valos have pretty crappy existences, so that's kind of a given, I guess. Still. It's gotta suck being confined to your elemental form and unable t...

    Aveline is a prisoner on a prison ship orbiting earth. As such she has been stripped of her rights and become a medical science experiment. The cruel Dr. Bates keeps ?breaking her? to see if her body can fix itself and has stripped her of vision in one eye. Her life is thrown upsid...

    Confusing but okay The beginning was okay, same beginning theme of ladies being used as science experiments. Then the crash...that?s where it became confusing. I?m guessing it was supposed to be an amazing description of the world building and another amazing buildup of how she ...

    All backstory and world building The author spent a lot of time describing the world and what was going around the characters. Generally, I would say that?s a good thing. However, it was too much in this case. Each chapter seemed to be dedicated to describing uninteresting th...

    The Valos of Sonhadra series is a Sci-Fi alien romance with each of the 9 books in the series being told by a different author. If you have a favourite author of the bunch and don't want to read them all don't worry, each book can be read as a standalone. The background story for each ...

    A kinder, gentler genie The Ventos reminded me a bit of genies, hence the title. Avaline only stole to feed herself, but much like Aladdin, was condemned for it. Her sister was just unfortunate enough to be along on this run. Both of them were sent to, the now infamous, space pr...

    I've never read the previous books in thus series but I have read other books by this author before, who is totally awesome by the way! And what's even better is that Whirlwind can be read as a Standalone, and i still enjoyed it and understood it. We start off with Aveline in some p...

    Violence I was very emotional with this book. I think the abuse for the character was harder for me to read for numerous reasons. I think the most was because they were trying to help heal her even though they suffered from a creator. She desperately needed someone on her side and t...

    Lacking Lacking is the best word I can think of to describe this one. The guys always referred to the girl as a warrior, but I saw nothing that made her a warrior. She was a very insecure survivor, but surviving cruel medical procedures does not make you a warrior. She never actuall...

    Aveline endures. She's a survivor. She's a protector by taking the bad things that happen for her sister. The prison ship, for Aveline, is horrific. There is pointless torture by a prison doctor. When the ship is split open, Aveline gets sucked out of it and lands in a weird world. ...

    This wasn't as good as other stuff I've read by this author. It had an interesting concept, but I'm not sure how much of it can actually be attributed to this particular author because of the number of authors involved in the series. I didn't dislike this MC, but she wasn't as engaging...

    As always, Ripley produces an amazing tale. Aveline is a prisoner aboard The Concord for crimes she committed to help her and her sister survive the harshness of Earth. Growing up an orphan, life was never easy and she did the only thing her sister could think of to help them, st...

    Yeah nah. I didn?t dislike the book, but I didn?t really get it either. The storyline, characters and world building - none of them quite worked for me. I was left more than a little perplexed at the end of the book. Why was the heroine given the heartstones? By whom? How and...

    Really enjoyed this story. Aveline is a very sympathetic character not so much her sister Marisol who is selfish as well as mean to her. While she is experimented on by Dr. Bates a psychotic man who enjoys causing pain but he does not touch Marisol who only has housekeeping duties. The...

    Overall my first impression of this book was that I didn't think that I'd like it. Personally the start was a little slow but did help with world and character building so it was worth it. The more I read the more I fell in love with the characters and their world. This story is really...

    The book started off interesting with Aveline on the prison ship being tortured, once the ship starts to crash and Aveline gets sucked out into a cloud city is when the author lost me.  Who was attacking her at this point and why?  I never did understand how she wound up in the templ...

    This RH paranormal is wonderful. It's like a Sci-fi fairytale. Different from everything I usually read. I want to give spoilers to explain how different, but I really don't want to spoil your entertainment. Aveline the survivor meets her guys. Even though they are different they are h...

    A good read I'm still really enjoying this series. However, I found it hard to visualize what was happening when Aveline first got to Zephyr. I don't understand how she got into the temple, and then why the temple fell apart. Her sister was a piece of work. I didn't like her at all....

    Aveline is a thief. Caught, she and her sister are serving time on a penal ship where Avaline was the subject of a sadistic doctor who wanted to answer the question of how much damage could be inflicted on the human body before it could no longer heal itself or respond to medication. D...

    the Tao of menage Whirlwind is a lovely, hopeful, love story of the menage variation - and author Ripley Proserpina infuses it with lyricism, poet descriptions, and a mystical flavor. I enjoyed the way she let her characters show us who and what they were in their own time. Aveline ...

    Looooved it!!! Aveline, Thanasis, Aaddhar, Ettan and Branesh are my new favorite sci-fi RH family. I am not usually a big fan of science fiction, but there are some I love and this one is at the top now!! I personally recommend this book to all RH readers who are not afraid to read ...

    Whirlwind: Valos of Sonhadra is book 4 of the series but I have not read any of the others and this read fine as a standalone. This is a reverse harem romance but also has plenty of other things going on in it. A complex storyline that creates a unique world and the engaging characters...

    A trademark of Ripley?s heroines is their strength. Aveline is no different. Perhaps the strongest female characters to date from Ripley, Aveline has to overcome her sister?s betrayal, a doctor who wants to experiment on her, the loss of her sight in one eye, and prison. Aveline ge...

    Just like I have found in previous stories by this author 'Whirlwind' soars with creativity. An alien race whose emotions are broadcast by the colors showing on their skin and whose physical composition can be changed from air to solid? Superb. And even though I always struggle with th...

    Wonderful! Proserpina builds such wonderful worlds. Aveline is a terrific MC - she has made poor choices, but always for others. She is loyal, strong, and yet open. Thanasis, Ettan, and Aadahar are great. I love how they care for Aveline, and how the guys and Aveline learn from each...
