Her Alien Beast by Presley Hall
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Short on story!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏
Character development: 😚😌😉
The heroine: Elizabeth – she is a doctor who volunteered to go on a mission to space to make first contact with alien life. After the ship she was on crash landed on an alien prison planet, she finds that the mission was actually to take a bunch of women abducted from Earth and give them to an alien race in exchange for technology.
The Hero: Axen – a Voxeran warrior who along with his prince and a bunch of others were exiled to the prison planet after a failed coup attempt against the princes uncle who has taken over the kingdom. They have rescued the women and brought them from the wreck back to their compound.
The Story: When the Voxeran village is attacked by a group of rogue prisoners, Axen fights like a beast and saves Elizabeth from getting kidnapped. He is hurt in the battle and Elizabeth is the only doctor, so is responsible for keeping him alive. They find that they are fated mates, but some things from her past come between them.
This book was told in dual points of view and narrated in dual narration where the male narrator does the chapters in Axen’s point of view and the female narrator does the chapters in Elizabeth’s point of view. Cat Auden and C.J. Grey did the narration and both of them had great voices for the characters. Though I do like Duet narration better than dual narration, where the male does all the male voices and the female does all the female voices.
The story in this one was a bit lacking and after the last two books which were much more like adventures, I was a bit disappointed in this one. There wasn’t much going on except inside Elizabeth’s head. She has a lot of inner turmoil about the way she grew up and about something that happened before she left earth and much of the book was about this.
