Lonely in the bugpocalypse!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏🌎
Character development: ☹️😳🥺☺️
The Hero: Tillie – she considered herself a baby prepper before the alien insects arrived on Earth. She had a fortress along with a ton of food and supplies and was prepared for the apocalypse when it came. Though she never expected it to be so lonely. Though at least she had her trusty dog, Waffles. Waffles was one of the only dogs left in the area due to the fact that dogs were large and the bugs usually got them.
The heroine: Rayk’n – He had come to Earth after hearing that human females turned on their mating instinct and were compatible with the Xarc’n hunters. He wanted nothing more than to find his mate, so was not happy when the other hunters at the compound nominated him to go after the boy and dog they had seen and thought might be trying to go it alone. They figured the boy would need help, though they didn’t know at the time the boy wasn’t a boy at all but a grown human female.
The Story: While Tillie and Waffles were out scavenging for some books, she heard a buzzing sound which drew the bugs toward where they were foraging. So they hunkered down and sprayed the door to mask their scent. When she cracked the door to check outside, she saw the huge Xarc’n hunter who had been stalking her.
Like the rest of the series, this book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Troy Duran and Keira Stevens do the narration and along with the good storylines, and world building have made this entire series worth reading. I love Troy’s super deep voice and Keira is perfect for this series as well.
I love the fact that Tillie was a strong female character who was thriving in this dystopian world without any help from anyone else. She not only loves her dog, but romance novels as well. What more could you ask for in a heroine?
Rayk’n was one of the Xarc’n warriors that had a mission on another planet but decided to go to Earth instead and join the fight there in hopes of finding a mate while on Earth. However there were a few on his ship that were bread for their strict nature and wanted to follow their directive. These hunters saw the others as defective and began hunting them down, one of these is after Rayk’n and finds him with Tillie. I liked this storyline which was suspenseful and interesting.
