World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 🙃☺️🤭🥰
The heroine: Charlotte – She is a linguist and the wife of a senator who was caught in flagrante with another man. So she volunteers to go on a mission into space to make contact with Alien life. While on the ship, she and another woman find that the ship is carrying a bunch of women in sleeping pods whom they think are the cargo to be used as a gift to the aliens. Before they can do anything about it, the ship lurches and is sucked into a wormhole and later crashes to an alien planet.
The Hero(es): Droth – He overseas the training of a few of the younger males from his settlement, the males are sons of his friend who passed and whose death Droth feels responsible for. He sees a ship crash land on the prison planet where he lives. On the prison planet, new arrivals aren’t greeted with open arms. Scavengers and raiders sometimes land and attack settlements like the one Droth lives in. Droth is the leader of his group of warriors, he was a prince when they lived on Vox.
The Story: when the ship Charlotte is on splits apart into two pieces and crash lands on the alien planet, she and the other woman, Elizabeth rescue some other women from sleeping pods and check out the area around them. Before long, a huge bird like creature swoops down and carries Charlotte away from the other women.
Droth is out hunting and comes across Charlotte and knows she is his bonded mate right away. I don’t want to give away any more, but I did like the story and it is peripherally related to the Fated Mates of the Kalixian Warriors series in that the ship and the females were headed for the Orkans who are the bad guys in that series. The other bad guys are the American Government who are trading women for tech and safety from invasion.
The book is told in dual points of view and dual narration. The narrators are C.J. Grey and Kat Arden. They did a great job. I like the way C.J. Grey speaks a bit at first stiltedly which works well for the Alien male. I plan to read more of this series.
