Too crazy for me!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏
Character development: 😳😬
The heroine: Macy – she is expected to marry her good friend Camrin. She feels guilt for not loving him the way he deserves. Though she sees a life with him as routine and she wants more. She agree’s to go out on Camrin’s boat even though she hates going out on the water ever since she lost her sister in a drowning accident.
The Heroes: Jax – a Kraken. He is known as a wanderer among his people because he is a loner and has a need to explore and be out in the open. Though he is also a proficient hunter and helps his people on hunts.
The Story: Macy had loved the water when she was a kid. Her father was a fisherman and she had stayed away from the water for years, but Camrin had dreamed of having his own boat and finally had it and wanted to take Macy to see something. She was sure he was going to propose that night, so agreed to go out with him because it was important to him. Though a sudden storm hits and Macy is swept overboard and wakes up in a cave near an abandoned underwater facility filled with old items and a humanoid creature named Jax who speaks english.
The book starts out with the statement “361 years after landing”. But then doesn’t immediately explain what that means. Macy lives someplace called “The Watch” on Halora. I am not exactly sure what “The Watch” is or means, but it seems Halora is a planet. So it seems they landed on Halora for the purpose of colonization 361 years ago. It took me a bit to figure this out. I think it could have been explained better.
I have been reading a lot of alien romance lately so thought this one would be similar. Though sometimes when the alien or creature differs so much from humans, it is just a bit too hard to believe that a romance would happen. The story wasn’t bad, but I just couldn’t get into it like I do with most books.
The book was told in dual points of view with two narrators. Hollie Jackson and Ryan Turner did the narration and both did a fine job, but nothing was exceptional about the audiobook.
