Audiobook Review: Descended (Alien Mate Index, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Descended by Evangeline Anderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Charlotte Walker is just an intern trying to get through her surgical rotation in one piece when her life takes an abrupt turn for the weird. A seven-foot tall patient with multicolored eyes and golden skin shows up in the ER asking for her. When he tells Charlotte she’s supposed to be the Empress of the entire galaxy, she naturally thinks he’s high or crazy or both.

He’s not.

Kristoff Verrai is the Captain of the Imperial Guard of the Goddess-Empress of the galaxy. For ten cycles he served his old mistress faithfully. Now that she is dead, his only job is to find and protect her new Incarnation until she can ascend the throne.

He doesn’t expect to fall in love with her.

But a relationship between them can never be–the Empress must have a Consort with Royal blood and Kristoff is just a commoner.

Can they fight the love growing between them? Or will it overwhelm them?

If only Charlotte wasn’t Descended from the most powerful female in the universe, they might have a chance…

The heroine: Charlotte Walker – a medical student and best friends with both Zoe and Leah from Abducted and Protected. She is the only one of the three that is left on Earth and she plans to stay their and finish her medical studies.

The Hero(es): Kristoff Verrai – Majorin captain of the guard for the Goddess/Empress of the Galaxy. Kristoff was the closest guard to the old Empress since he was young and was devoted to her, so he is not too exited when he is in mourning for her and tasked with searching for the replacement/new incarnation of the Empress.

The Story: The villain from Abducted and Protected, Count Doloroso, is the last of the assimilated. An Assimilated is a person who has been implanted with a tiny microchip and the AI has taken over the brain of the host. Doloroso was one of his former hosts who was killed after trying to abduct Zoe, he later became an important and wealthy man from Earth, though he had a bad experience as the orange skinned man with small hands. He was then killed when he abducted Leah.

Now the AI in Count Doloroso has moved on to a new alien species and he thinks this host has a much better chance of working for his goal of getting a female la-ti-dal (with powers) to use in order to impregnate with the first true born assimilated being and then go on to take over the galaxy. Since Zoe and Leah are now out of his reach, he plans to use their friend Charlotte. Though Doloroso isn’t the only villain in this one, there are a few other great villains.

Like the previous two books in this series, the characters were both very likable and the world building was terrific. The rules Charlotte is supposed to follow as the Empress were pretty crazy. She had to go through trials to prove she is the Goddess and she was to pick a consort (out of males with royal blood), which Kristoff wasn’t.

The narration was done by Mackenzie Cartwright and William Martin who did a stellar job and both of which have extremely pleasant voices and great cadence. The narration is dual narration, not duet narration but I really enjoyed it nevertheless. Like the prior two books the world and the story are as important as the romance and I really enjoyed it all and I am loving this entire series.
