Audiobook Review: Claimed by the Hunter (Xarc’n Warriors, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Claimed by the Hunter by Lynnea Lee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My name is Alice, and I live in the Bugpocalypse.
I survived my first post-apocalyptic winter, hiding out in an abandoned hardware store with my cousin, Natalie. But spring is here. And that’s bad news! With warm weather comes the endless swarms of deadly bugs.
Natalie is injured, and it’s up to me to forage for food. But there’s just one little problem. Okay, so “little” isn’t the best word to describe the fierce Xarc’n warrior who is obsessed with me. Kaj’k is freakin’ HUGE! And his sharp claws, pointy fangs, and massive horns are scary AF. 
I reject his gift of food and flowers, but my massively muscled alien hunter doesn’t get the hint. He tosses me over his shoulders and carries me to his shuttle. I expect the worse, but all he does is purr at me.
I’ve spent my entire life fighting the swarm. Genetically engineered to hunt the scourge across the galaxy, Xarc’n hunters are the ultimate predator. It takes a lot to take one of us down. Then, I meet the little human female who brings me to my knees.
My Alice is full of fire, and I have no doubt she could survive on her own. But she’s my mate, and she’s mine to protect. When cannibals and scourge threaten my female, I toss her over my shoulder and carry her to my ship.
Now that I have my mate in my arms, I’m never letting her go!

Alien insects invade Earth!

The heroine: Alice – lives in an old hardware store with her younger cousin Natalie. She has learned to survive when the deadly alien insect swarms invaded Earth. She is able to get around and forage for supplies by covering her scent.

The Hero: Kaj’k – he is a Xarc’n warrior (hunters), an alien race that traveled the galaxies hunting the scourge (alien insect swarms that devastated planets and ate all the life as they went). The Xarc’n hunters came to Earth and offered to help in the fight. Most governments didn’t trust aliens after the scourge came.

The Story: Alice had a healthy fear of the huge Xarc’n warrior. The government warned that the Xarc’n may have sent the scourge only to come in later and clear them out and take over. Though Alice and Natalie know that probably isn’t true, there is still the fact that women seemed to disappear when the hunters are seen in the area. When she first sees Kaj’k all she knows that he is huge, muscular and pretty scary.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Troy Duran and Kiera Stevens. I love Troy Duran, who has a super deep and sexy voice which is perfect for the huge alpha alien male. Kiera Stevens has a pleasant feminine voice which is age appropriate sounding for Alice.

This was one of the few alien romances that takes place on earth and I liked the concept of this one. The Xarc’n race didn’t lose all of their females like in so many alien romances, but they are clones that were made specifically to hunt the scourge and so only males were created. Human women tended to waken their dormant mating instinct and Alice was that woman for Kaj’k.
