Book Review: Invaded
Book 2 in the Alienated series
AUTHOR Melissa Landers
PUBLISHED: February 3rd, 2015
GENRE: Science Fiction/Romance
PREMISE: Cara and Aelyx deal with long distance separation as Cara is on Aelyx's home planet and he is on Earth...
MY REVIEW: So apparently this is going to be a two part series instead of a trilogy like I originally thought. After reading this...that's probably just as well because I don't see much in the way of offering of plot after this one.
This one was mostly interesting due to seeing the alien world that Aelyx came from in more detail. I love the world the author came up with. It was so different from Earth in every way imaginable from the way the people operated to what the planet was like. It was refreshing to see someone make an alien world that was actually alien. That said, the plot itself was pretty much a rehash of what happened in the first book, just with aliens instead of humans. That's why I think it's just as well that this is two books instead of three.
So as a sequel and a conclusion, this got the job done. It just didn't take the series as far as I would have liked. But at least the author has the decency not to drag out the plot on us. I appreciate that.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of Alienated, fans of the CW series Starcrossed, romantic sci-fi fans
