Audiobook Review: Dark Planet Falling (Dark Planet Warriors, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dark Planet Falling by Anna Carven

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Prince

Prince Xalikian Kazharan has a dilemma on his hands. Now that the Kordolians have landed on Earth, he somehow has to convince an entire planet of Humans that his people mean them no harm. It’s easier said than done, especially when one’s race has a reputation for brutally conquering the Nine Galaxies. Perhaps this stubborn female journalist called Sera Aquinas, who thinks she can just walk up to his front door and ask for an interview, might be able to help him.

But first, he has to gain her trust, and that’s not so easy when her presence drives him to distraction.

The Journalist

Sera Aquinas doesn’t trust the charming amber-eyed Prince when he says he doesn’t want to take over her planet. As a hardened journalist, she’s seen her share of duplicity and corruption. So when Xal tells her the Kordolians are looking for Human females, she thinks he’s messing with her. Seriously? Who would believe that lame excuse?

She has to admit however, that Xal is one fine looking alien, and a part of her is curious.

It’s absolutely far fetched, but what if he’s telling the truth?

What if Humans and Kordolians are compatible?

And when it comes to Xal, why does her body keep betraying her when her head is telling her to get the hell out of there?

Warning: this book contains swearing, violence, sensual sex scenes, silver aliens with fangs and a little dose of insta-lust. If you’re sensitive to any of these things, you may want to think twice before reading it. It’s definitely recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙📔
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😳🤬😮🤨

The heroine: Sera Aquinas – a reporter who thinks it is a bit too coincidental that the mining station Fortuna Tau was recently evacuated and blew up right before the Xargek came to Earth and started wreaking havoc. Especially when the Kordolian troops where the only ones able to kill the Xargek, and now the Kordolians want to make Earth their home.

The Hero: Prince Xalikian Kazharan (a.k.a. Xal) – he has to convince the people of Earth to let his people live there. His people are dying out because of the lack of Kordolian females and births. Also he, the General and their forces can help the people of Earth to defend against any species that threatens Earth, including the Xargek who have already arrived on Earth.

The Story: Sera wants to interview the Kordolians to try to figure out what their long term plans are. She has her doubts that the race known for making war and subjugating worlds doesn’t have the same plans for Earth, but if they did, why haven’t they done it yet. Why are they taking up residence in a tree lined suburb of the diplomatic zone?

Not only is Sera a journalist and the daughter of a senator, but she also happens to be a former underground cage fighter. Go Figure! It helps her when she boards Xal’s Alien ship to report on the war against his mother’s forces who have come to Earth bent on destruction. Despite the unrealistic nature of some situations, the story is pretty good. There is romance, plenty of steam and an evil empire after our Hero.

The story was told in dual POV but with only one narrator, so that takes a point off the narration. Luckily Jillian Macie does a great job. She has many different voices for the different characters and her male voice isn’t too bad. She is a good reader and I like her soft voice and different inflections for Sera. This book was better than the first in the series. I liked where the story went and I’m invested in the fate of the Kordolians.
