The heroine: Alejandra – she was abducted by aliens. When they landed on an alien planet, she and another abductee Lily, escaped and had been surviving for weeks in the forest until they were near a river and the ground gave way, splitting the two up as they were taken down the river rapids. Alejandra nearly died and was taken care of by a little rodent like creature that gave her cups of water.
The Hero: Auzed – The head guard at the pearl temple. He and the guards under him were in charge of protecting the small number of females that still existed in their city and live at the pearl temple. He was in charge of going into Sauven territory and searching for the females that escaped from an insurgent camp. He wasn’t happy about breaking Sauven law but if he didn’t, she would be forced to take place in the Sauven’s marriage ceremonies.
The Story: Zed finally found Alex and rescued her from a creature who had gotten her scent and wouldn’t give up until she was dead. Though killing the creature was against Sauven law, so he tried to get them out of their right away, but they were caught before they could get away.
This book was told in dual points of view by a single narrator, Stephen Dexter who did a great job. I really like his deep clear voice and though I usually like books told in dual points of view to be narrated by two or more narrators, I really enjoyed this one. This was the first book in this series I have listened to and everything was explained really well, so I didn’t get the feeling that I missed anything by not reading the series in order.
I loved the world building in this one, from a forest with bioluminescent flora and fauna, to a city of treehouses and more. The planet was definitely alien, though the aliens were technologically advanced. This is the kind of alien romance that I really like. The characters were terrific and the story was really good and well written. I definitely plan to read more from this series.
