Political implications of abducted humans!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😪😵😑🥺🥰
The heroine: Savannah – Like in books 1-3, Savannah came from Earth of the future, where people and geography of the earth is separated into sectors and colors. The gold and blue sectors are the top tier and the grey class of sector 6 is the bottom, though below even that is the work camps of sector 5 where people get sent when they can’t pay their bills. They don’t even have a class. Savannah and sister Atlanta are gold class social media influencers for the sectors. Though they have become disenchanted with the class systems and their own popularity especially considering they post themselves going to all sorts of high class events when there are grey class people who can’t even feed their families.
The Hero: Coplan – He is one of the ‘healers’ on the Lunarian warship. He disappointed his family when he became a healer (a.k.a. Doctor) instead of a warrior because healers were considered soft and the fact that he would be healing people of a lower class than him was looked down upon by the higher classes like the one he was born into.
The Story: Savannah and Atlanta are the most popular influences but hate the government and the sector system. They wanted to donate their salaries to the grey class but the government wouldn’t allow that. They often talk about how disillusioned they are with their lot in life. They are often photographed eating and drinking, but they have to make up for it with strenuous exercise to keep their thin figures.
While out on an influencer party to celebrate separation day, which marks the anniversary of the day that their world was separated into sectors. The girls don’t see their future as very bright as they get older and their popularity will start to fade. They were the last to leave the celebration when the grey class protesters broke through the window of the club and their guards leave them to check out the situation. That is when they are abducted by the same alien that abducted Bria in book 1, Abducted by the Warrior Prince, with apple pie a ‘la mode, which they were starving for.
The story was told in dual points of view using dual narration, where the female narrator does all the narration in the chapters told from a female point of view and the male narrator does all the narration of the chapters told from a male point of view. The narrators were Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister who both have great voices and do a terrific job. Sierra Kline is great at showing emotion through her voice, especially anxiety, fear, passion and anger.
I liked the fact that Coplan is very moral and determined to think of Savannah as a patient only and not to get interested her like some of the other men on the ship had done with previous humans they had rescued. Especially since becoming mates with a human is no longer just a matter of saving their race, but because some jealous Lunarian women have made the whole issue political including the woman who headed up the specters (Lunarian spies). She is heading up the push to send all human woman back to Earth. Fantastic story in this one!
