The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.
Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.
Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.
Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.
The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?
This week has been so busy. With my term paper and school, it hasn't been the best week for reading but I managed to finish Invaded and read Geek Girl by Holly Smale and One Man Guy by Micheal Barakiva (reviews coming soon!).
Invaded follows Alienated and Until Midnight. Cara is on L'eihr and Aelyx is on Earth. Cara is training like crazy and trying to get along with the L'eihrs but merging two cultures is kind of impossible with the practically emotionless people surrounding her.
Aelyx isn't having any more luck then Cara is. Aelyx's life is being threatened 24/7 and it looks like the alliance between L'eihr and Earth may not happen. What will Aelyx and Cara do to fix it?
I really love this series! It's perfect! I can see nothing that I didn't love about it...I loved learning about L'eihr and it's culture. L'eihr is so cool! I find the whole concept so fascinating. I would willingly visit in a heart beat!
The whole plot development is so cool! I really want Melissa Landers to write a third book! PLEEEEASE MELISSA WRITE ONE!!! WE NEED ONE!!! YOU SAID IT ENDED ON A SATISFYING NOTE BUT IT DIDN'T I NEED MORE!
If you loved Alienated and Until Midnight you will definitely love Invaded! 5/5 stars!
Until next time!
