World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏🌎
Character development: ☹️😳🥺☺️🥰
The heroine: Shelby – of the three women from the crew that landed on Earth, Shelby was the only one that wasn’t traded to the Naga males in exchange for Lurker technology. Shelby wasn’t traded because she told Peter, the exploration team leader, that she was pregnant by Collins, another member of the Team with whom she had a short contracted relationship before they found they were both going on the mission to Earth.
The Hero: Vagan – He saw Shelby early on and knows she is his mate. He went to Zaku to demand they get Shelby for him. He wasn’t thinking straight since he was crazed with lust and denial. He ended up being stabbed and is slowly recovering, but he has never been away from water for so long, when he sees the facility crumbling in on itself and he knows Shelby is inside.
The Story: Shelby has been helped by Collins when Peter keeps making her take pregnancy tests. He acts like he is on her side, but won’t go against Peter’s decisions. Collins is handsome, but he is a mess and though their relationship ended well, Shelby doesn’t like the fact that he has been acting like they are a couple just because they are faking her pregnancy together.
Vagan goes into the falling building to save Shelby and the building comes down upon them. He, Shelby and Collins end up stuck beneath the rubble and struggling to find a way out. This book has had the best and most involved story of the three books so far. I was glad to get some of the answers about the Lurkers, about how the Naga came to be on Earth and more.
Elizabeth Hart and John Masterson do the narration and they do a great job. I like the fact that Elizabeth puts a lot of emotion into her narration, she easily sounds, intelligent, nervous, afraid and more. John has a deep voice which works well for the alien naga males. The book is dual points of view, and done in dual narration which isn’t my favorite since the male narrator has to do female voices and vice versa.
