    Going into Shrouded, I assumed I was going to get some soulmate relationship angst between strangers in a futuristic setting plus space princes. I eat these sort of stories up like popcorn…and like popcorn, usually end up feeling like there’s something (a plot hole, I suppose) stuck in my teeth.

I eat these sort of stories up like popcorn…and like popcorn, usually end up feeling like there’s something (a plot hole, I suppose) stuck in my teeth. Turns out, Shrouded is Space Opera in the glorious footsteps of Lois M. Bujold, Sharon Lee, Julie E. Czerneda, and Laura E. Reeve, with its romance lite and emphasis on relationships, alien cultures, plotting and adventure. It’s an easy read with an ending I didn’t see coming and guessed at only a page or two before the final reveal. What's not to like? Interesting, well-defined characters, a royal succession crisis, a smart heroine in desperate straits, unexpected twists, a creative yarn full of machinations and not a single easily identifiable plot hole. A page into the story, I was delighted. Two pages in, I was hooked. Vashia is desperate, clever, and knows the trouble she’s in when she leaps into the unknown. Dolfan is a little harder to pin down, but his relationship to his planet and with his family won me over. So why only 4 stars? For one, the blurb from the updated edition of the novel set up pretty hardline - and only partially met - romance and angst expectations. The story is fairly light in the steam category. Second, about halfway through the book, the novel shifts its attention from Vashia as the main driver of the story to Dolfan, passing the plot torch to him, so to speak. Vashia’s passive acceptance of her situation, while realistic (I suppose) is frustrating as danger looms ever larger in the reader’s mind’s eye. All in all, pretty darn excellent.

I was in for a surprise! I'm not gonna lie, I am not rating this book above 4 stars just for the romance in it, because if I had to rate it just for that I wouldn't probably go above 3, but this book for me was a lot more than just a romance book. Shroud felt real, the moon base, the customs, the Heart stone, all the details of the alien planet felt real. So did the characters both the villains and the 'heroes'. I loved the relationships among the princes and even among the brides. I didn't particularly loved either Vashia or Dolfan (the 2 main characters), but it didn't matter, by the end of the book I learnt to appreciate them anyway and there was a whole cast of secondary characters to love, hate and understand. The story is kind of slow to start, but then explodes in a fast paced adventure I couldn't put down without regret. I really appreciated the fact the author doesn't give in to clichees and stereotypes and actually managed to surprise me more than once with her unpredictable turn of events. If there is one thing I would have changed, it would have been for Tarren to have her separate book. I came to love her and I wanted to read about her finding her own happily-ever-after in a longer and more leisurable fashion. Still I hope the author will consider writing more books in this series, Mofitan is still waiting for his bride, after all :3

    This was a fast-paced novel with a surprising ending. I enjoyed the characters and the intrigue. At first I didn’t particularly like Mofitan. I thought he was going to be one of the “bad guys”, but in the end he turned out to be a pretty decent fellow. I loved the clean romance aspect of this book.

At first I didn’t particularly like Mofitan. I thought he was going to be one of the “bad guys”, but in the end he turned out to be a pretty decent fellow. I loved the clean romance aspect of this book. I thought the idea of a stone being able to pick out the perfect mate for someone was an interesting idea. It sure would save us the trouble of picking them out for ourselves and then ending up with so many divorces. All of the couples (except for Vashia and Haftan) were perfectly matched and happily wedded until their dying day. The angst and anxiety that the women felt as they left Eclipsis made me think about the women that left Europe to become wives of Canadians and Americans in the 19th and 20th centuries. The difference being that the women in the book weren’t just leaving a continent, they were leaving their world. It must have been a hard decision, and they must have been desperate. But the people on Shroud were desperate too. For the Shrouded, though they all mated with women from other worlds, only had male children. In order to further their race, this very private, insulated society had to bring women to their world in order to reproduce. And most of the women that were willing to come to their world were those who wanted to escape the lives that they were presently living. Most were prostitutes and criminals. Not your best class of people to start your society with. Ironically however, Shroud had a much better economy and standard of living that Eclipsis, where Vashia came from. So perhaps the state of the society comes more from the leadership than anything else. Frances Pauli was very creative in her creation of her fantasy world. Her descriptions of the land and sky-scapes made the scenery easy to visualize. I gave this book 3 stars. It was very enjoyable. Thank you to Zharmae Publishing who provided a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Everything makes perfect sense once you've jumped head first into Frances Pauli's fully realized world. The book is brimming with strange emotions fueled by an unspoken bond that’s just waiting to be brought to the surface. Dive in, swim around a bit, and enjoy Shrouded for the mystery and adventure it unfolds. Enter the lives of Vashia and Dolfan as they, respectively, run from an unfulfilling life, uncover mysteries about the strange planet they’re calling home, flirt and fight back the pings of irrefutable love, and strive to save a people and process tamed and tainted by tradition. Pauli has taken the seeds of practical fantasy and grown them into an exceptional struggle for power and an engaging adventure on another world. Where some novels fall short on world building and fail to fill in essential details, Pauli has crafted her characters and the planet they inhabit in a way that holds weight, feels authentic, and barrels into the unknown with the confidence and cunning of a seasoned professional. Her prose dances around an almost fairytale-like love unwillingly shared between Vashia and the princes of Shroud. At times this love is light and fluffy, playing off the scenery and reflected through quick glances or a slight smile. Other times the bond being formed in the pages of Shrouded is one that feels like it could overturn the stars and fulfill Heart-fueled fantasies. The book is a strong entry in the YA sci-fi/fantasy genre, and giving away too much here would be doing a new reader a disservice. The mystery that propels the story forward is one meant to be uncovered word by word, chapter by chapter, and following Vashia and Dolfan down their respective rabbit holes makes for a very entertaining read.

    (I read a review copy of Shrouded provided by the author.) Shrouded is best described as a science-fiction romance. It is best placed in the tradition of Lois M. Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, where the story is not about the technology or the science, but about the people and the culture.

Vashia, running from her ruthless dictator of a father and the horrific mercenary that he wants to force her to wed, signs a contract and boards a shuttle for a strange world. The contract: to agree to be what is essentially a mail-order bride for the planet known as Shroud. Meanwhile, Shroud is teetering on the edge of a royal succession crisis: seven princes and not a single bride to be had to crown the next King. The Heart, a mysterious stone which communicates the bond between two people, waits for the Kingmaker to arrive. When Vashia arrives on Shroud, she meets eyes with Dolfan, the prince who wants the throne the least of all his brothers--but are they destined to rule Shroud, or is something more at work? Full of betrayal, intrigue, romance and action, and serving as a very interesting deconstruction of the idea of "love at first sight", Shrouded is a riveting story that should be on the list of any lover of far-off worlds, likeable but flawed protagonists, and political intrigue. Highly recommended.

She's a strong character, continuing to fight even when the situation seems hopeless. I really liked Dolfan, he's a smart, brave, caring guy. And he's sweet. "I don't want the throne, Mof." He didn't. But a wiggle of guilt coursed through him. He did want the heart. Anyone raised in its shadow would, anyone raised by parents who'd felt the bond every time they looked at one another." Location 790 Vivid world building, excellent descriptions and an interesting plot full of political intrigue and maneuvering. The twists and turns in the story kept me on the edge of my seat, turning the pages, dying to know what was going to happen next. The ending felt a bit rushed and a bit of a let down, Pauli builds up and then when we're about to get the big payoff it's 'the end'. But the story left me wanting more. I definitely want to read more from Pauli and more about the Princes of the Shroud.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up this novel as I find it’s really hard to find a romance-science fiction novel that has a well-written and intriguing story that’s easy to understand (not inundated with science jargon); that also includes an assortment of interesting, courageous, and likeable (and unlikeable) characters that all share the spotlight; and that’s full of action, suspense, intrigue, espionage, and romance.

Speaking of romance, if you’re looking for an erotic tale that includes an alpha-male and pages of sexual escapades, you won’t find it here. In fact, no one is having sex (too bad). Don’t despair as the author did a wonderful job of creating plenty of sexual tension between Dolfan and Vashia. In the end, if you’re looking to read a romance-science fiction novel that grabs your attention from the very first page, I suggest giving “Shrouded” a read. I look forward to reading more works of Frances Pauli.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. The book blurb doesn’t even begin to do this story justice. It’s an engagingly detailed dystopian science fiction tale that manages to weave the twisted politics of two worlds and an intergalactic battle into it. I really enjoyed the interaction between characters, everyone managed to find their own voice which can sometimes be difficult with so many people involved. Twists and turns abound as well, keeping you on your toes. And what I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. The book blurb doesn’t even begin to do this story justice.

I noticed that it’s titled “A Princes of the Shroud Novel” which would imply that more with at least some of these characters is on it’s way, and I can’t wait!

A bit lighter on the hard science side than I usually prefer, but that may be due to the longer story arc. A bit more romance than usual too - not a big draw for me, but it was done well enough to be fun, and the romantic rivalry was critical to the story line. I would love to see more of Shroud itself and its culture, which is off to a promising start but is not described in any great depth in this first volume.

    Generally I liked it. as other reviewers have said, the world building was quite nice. I listed it as a romance, but I did not feel it was a romance except in an alien insta love kind of romance and they did not spend that much time together. So it was not enough of a romance that I would usually want in a sci-fi romance. But it is well written and I liked it. no sex and that was a plus!

What she doesn't know is that she is playing right into her father and Jarn's plans. Dolfan has always known his fate. As one of seven princes, he will come before "the heart" for the chance to find his bride. Being king is the last thing that he wants but one look at Vashia and the pull she has on him has him rethinking his plans. Action, adventure and betrayal threaten them both and when the bonding happens with the least likely coupling, will anyone have the heart to question centuries of beliefs and traditions? I wasn't sure what to expect with this one, I always go into a scifi/paranormal romance with an open mind and this one defiantly required it. It was difficult for me to get into at first....I was really confused. The reader is dropped right into the conflict of the story without any real background of what is going on. I even went back to see if maybe this was a book two and I missed the beginning of the story somehow but no. A little time spent on developing Vashias backstory would have helped her character tremendously. Dolfan is a likable character, and you find yourself routing for him from the start but I really wanted to know more about him background would have been helpful. There are a lot of characters in this story and they all have really challenging names so it was really difficult to remember who is who. The action/adventure of this story is great and it is well written. I wouldn't characterize it so much as a romance though as that is a very small aspect of this story. My thoughts: Quick hook or slow starter? 3.5 (I was lost in the beginning and it took quite awhile for me to connect with the characters) Character development: 3 Level of Romance between characters: 3.5 Passion/Heat level: 3 (one kiss, that's it) Angst/Heartbreak: 3 (this is not really that kind of a story) Cliffhanger?: Nope, this is the first in a series but this couples story is wrapped. I am assuming future books will be about the other princes?? Overall, it was just ok for me. With a little more character development and a little more romance it would have been great for me. If you are looking for an action packed other world type book with just a tiny touch of romance, give this one a try. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The writing itself floats from fairy tale to fantasy to hard sci-fi with a depth and richness rarely seen. That depth and richness shows in the descriptions of minor characters, for instance Zern and his unibrow. The unibrow moves like a worm, showing his less than noble intentions and we are instantly given the opinion that Zern is not only unattractive but he is a double dealing, obsequious banker out for money and power without a single noble or positive motivation. All through a single physical attribute's. Vashia's inner dialogue as she reacts to people is priceless, funny and very real to her character. Coining Nerala Grandma Creepy had me wincing and laughing hard enough to make my jaw ache. While Dolfan is definitely an alpha male, he is pragmatic, always aware of what must be done and how to manage it, instead of obsessing on protecting this or dominating that. That is a wonderful change in a hero. And he's purple. Or as Vashia decides, taupe. The recognition that occurs Vashia and Dolfan isn't a sweet, adoring look or moment. It is like real love, a little uncomfortable and very confusing. Dolfan, knowing what the Heart intends with its matches, knows what the feeling is, accepts it and wraps it around himself, knowing full well that when the Heart bonds them together, he will have the job he always feared – king. Vashia, worn out from her emotion-laden race away from her home planet, not only doesn't know what it means but is worried that she is allergic to him. The tension between them is delightful while it lasts. And it does last most of the book. The writing in itself is wonderful, wry and fun. So fun, I put off finishing this book, taking it slowly and coming back again and again. It was more of a fantasy/sci-fi novel than the typical sci-fi/romance novel. However, the HEA's (and there are several) made me happy to have read it. And I will definitely be reading the others in the series! 5 out of 5

I loved Terran's attitude and she quickly became a favourite character. Her no bathing rule tickled me but I'm so glad that she found happiness. The relationship between the 7 princes was incredible. So much intrigue and political maneuvering just between them and then we can include the Seer. I really enjoyed reading about the princes and their individual characteristics. They made me laugh and one of them made me cry, although to be fair, it wasn't really his doing! Dolfan and Mofitan have a love/hate relationship but it was brilliant seeing it develop and I was definitely happy with their work together. The romance of this story is secondary to the Sci Fi intrigue. The relationship between Vashia and Dolfan is definitely meant to be and when the plot twisted, I ended up shouting out at my Kindle even though I knew it wouldn't go smoothly. I was just hoping for them to have a happy ending. If you like Sci Fi, action and adventure and intrigue then I think you will love this book.

I liked the supporting characters and thought they helped bring out the personality of the main characters. The author does deal with same-sex relationship ideals. The views are voiced through the eyes of the main character, Vashia. Vashia has very strong opinions about the topic. Without spoiling anything, I felt as though some characters did not get what was their just due. There was language (sporadically) but no sexual tension or encounters. I look forward to future installments. 3.5 stars
