Publisher's Summary

*In seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell's world, humans are nearly extinct and alien settlers have arrived.*
*Until recently, the E'rikon have remained segregated in their city and ignored the few humans who have tried to engage them… but now they have taken Jax's brother. To rescue him, she forms an uneasy alliance with a teenage E'rikon left stranded in the woods. She agrees to guide him to the city if he sneaks her past the human-proof barrier. Too bad it's not that simple.*
*Jax, who cannot stand to be touched, 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 a chain of events in motion which 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.
