Long trek home!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 🙃☺️🤭
The heroine: Sadie – She has anxiety resulting from her former life, she grew up a child star and has nightmare’s of a man that made her life hell. So she went a bit crazy when she was awoken from a cryopod after crash landing on an alien planet. Especially after finding out her own government sold her as a sex slave to aliens in return for technology.
The Hero(es): Jaro – He spent years as a slave on a planet far from Vox. When he was stranded on the Alien prison planet, he spent days alone and nearly died before the colony of the Voxeran found him and let him join their community. He has learned to trust them after years, but is mistrustful of any strangers including the human women they found on the crashed space ship.
The Story: The group of Voxeran males and human females faces quite a few obstacles now that they are together. Though they are at the crash site and need to make it back to the settlement. Jaro and Sadie get separated from the rest of the group and have to make it to the settlement alone through some very dangerous circumstances. While they are alone together, they become close.
Like the first book in the series, this one was also told in dual points of view with dual narration. The narration was again done by C.J. Grey and Kat Auden. Both did a great job. Kat has a very pleasing voice which sounded age appropriate for Sadie and I just love C.J.’s deep and gravely voice which works perfectly for the huge alien males.
The one thing I didn’t really like was the amount and length of the steamy scenes. There were just too many and they spanned multiple chapters. Also, though the timing fit with the storyline, the time they spent in steamy situations while they were traveling through dangerous territory seemed a bit too much for me. I kept thinking they were putting themselves in danger by stopping to get busy when they should have just waited until they were safe.
