Summary

Plagued by nightmares and panic attacks, seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell wants nothing more than a life of seclusion with only her twin brother for company. So when he's kidnapped by Earth's reclusive alien settlers, the E'rikon, she'll do anything to get him back--even form an alliance with a teenage E'rikon boy left behind by the same ship that took her brother.
Jax agrees to act as a guide, and in return, the alien agrees to sneak her past the human-proof barrier surrounding the E'rikon city. Too bad it's not that simple. Jax soon finds that she's drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales on his back--and he's equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn't know the alien's true motives, and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems.
With the aliens and the humans at odds, the connection forming between the two teens has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets in motion a chain of events that threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but Earth itself.

Very cool!

There were several things I really loved about this story, and a few I wasn't so keen on.

I did receive a code from the narrator for one of her books in return for an honest opinion, but I can't remember if it was this one or the last one I listened to, so I'm saying this one, and either way all reviews off me are honest wether they be gifted or not.

Jaz-Jasmine was a good character for the most part, but her panic attacks and personal weakness grated on me quite a bit. I have to admit I loved the story line and most of what she's been through, but there were moments when I really think especially towards the end of the book that she would just get a grip and start to process things and move forwards as her own person. She was almost there when she first faced her brother, but she almost insisted with real conviction that things were the same, and they really weren't. I had hoped she really knew and understood that before that moment.

The whole Lir storyline was very interesting and well written. (I do wish that Jax was a little more grown up with it, but she's a young, and love struck teen who knows nothing about the aliens or their love/bonding rituals, so I can kinda forgive the writer for some of these things.

For the most part this story kept me on edge and I wanted to know what happened. I can't believe the Author hasn't had the narrator back to do the second book, I'm just gutted, so much so I had to buy the book, and I don't often do that. I don't have the time to read a real book. So I do hope that the author will have this on the cards next.

The narrator brings such an abundance of life, joy, love and heartache to Jax, that you just can't stop listening even though sometimes, or most of the time she's a pain in the butt and really can't see the wood for the tress, silly girl.

So yeah, I was left with a book/narrator hangover. and I'm not used to that. You both make the best combination. And I do hope you'll work together again.

A great sci fi novel

Any additional comments?

Sci-Fi is nt my typical grnrebut in this case, I'm so glad I did. Theresa pulled me into Jax's story from page one and kept me on the edge of my seat until the last. Her world building was spot on and I could see the world she had created in my mind. I was glad to hear that there is a second book in the works as I definitely want more. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Sci Fi novels, or even if you don't, you should give it a try, you won't regret it! I would recommend this audiobook

A fresh take on alien invasion. Great performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend this to young people or anyone interested in getting introduced to the sci fi genre. An easy read (or listen) with a fun concept.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Vitrad makes for a fun villain. He's calculating, vicious, and out on a mission to get you. (add maniacal laughter)

What does Andrea Emmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Andrea enhances the story and is a natural fit. She personifies Jax and the rest of the cast by beautifully rendering them with her voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not one moment in particular but Jax's relationship with Jace was very moving.
