Audiobook Review: Broken (Fated Mates of the Kalixian Warriors, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Broken by Presley Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stranded on an alien planet with a cyborg warrior…
All I wanted to do was find my missing best friend. I never planned on getting kidnapped by aliens.

These ugly brutes claim I’m meant to be some sort of tribute bride, but there’s no way I’m letting that happen. Unfortunately, my escape attempt ends with me crashing onto a planet called Kalix.

Alone in the dangerous wilderness, my only hope of survival may be a darkly handsome alien with bronze skin, horns, and penetrating eyes.

He seems to want to help me. Hell, he seems to want to do a lot more than that to me. But I’ve been burned enough times back on Earth that trust doesn’t come easily…

Especially when I find out that my alien protector is harboring some dark secrets of his own.

Jade and Brele – Jade is on Earth and determined to find her friend Emma who disappeared and while looking into Jade’s disappearance, she ends up being taken captive by the Orkun warriors, similar to how Emma and the other women were abducted. She is taken as tribute to the Orkun Warlord Alkul and she fights since she is a champion MMA fighter. She is taken with Alkul on a fighter ship to a place Kalix where a war is being fought. At one point her cage opens, which leads to her attacking Alkul and the ship crashes on Kalix. She is lost in the forest on an alien planet when Brele finds her.

Brele is a cyborg and a warrior. He has been living in the forest for the past fifteen years. He was banished for being a traitor to his people after the enemy took control of his mind, leaving him unable to do anything to stop the betrayal, though his mind was still aware of everything that went on and he was unable to do anything to stop what happened. It was all made worse since he was the first born prince and heir, he would have been ruler if things were different.

Like the other books, this was narrated by C.J. Grey and Meg Price. I liked C.J. quite a bit and Meg was Ok, but I couldn’t always hear her clearly. I listened via my Alexa speaker while doing my nails and cleaning, so maybe that doesn’t come in as clearly as with my EarPods or on my iPad directly. Though I could hear C.J. fine, so there is that.

I liked the story in this one better than the last book. That one took place in the city, at the palace while this one was more of a journey, starting on Earth, then the spaceship, then Kalix. I also liked that Jade wasn’t one of the original human women who were abducted but had her own abduction story.
