Audiobook Review: The Alien’s Escape (Drixonian Warriors, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Alien’s Escape by Ella Maven

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“She will have my babies, but on our terms.”

Valerie: I thought waking up on a spaceship was traumatic. That’s got nothing on returning to consciousness while shackled in a cell. The kicker? I’m supposed to be a breeder for the alien in the cell next to me. My mother always told me I had birthing hips, but I don’t think she meant they were for pushing out blue extraterrestrials. I want to hate my cell-mate, but he’s a prisoner too, and so far he’s taken a few beatings to protect me…

Sax: The food sucks but the view has gotten a hell of a lot better since the human female showed up. I know exactly what our captors want–for us to mate so they can take our baby. Over my dead body. I’m willing to suffer their abuse if they leave the pretty female alone, but when they hurt her, all bets are off. Now I’m not only finding a way to escape with her, I’m also taking out every last captor before I leave. And then? I’ll fill her with as many babies as she wants.

The heroine: Valerie – she is a nurse who just wants a home of her own with maybe a pet, she thinks men are all liars. She has worked hard, her parents were dead and she has a healthy bank account which isn’t doing her any good now that she has been taken captive by aliens. She went to sleep in her apartment one night and woke up on a ship. When they landed, she was shackled and possibly bought by another race of alien.

The Hero: Sax – he is a huge, muscular blue Drixonian with snakelike skin, pierced nipples and horns. He is shackled in the same cage as Valerie, he knows his brother was also a captive who escaped with his human mate. Sax had been beaten over and over by the Uldani captors.

The Story: The Drixonians used to work for the Uldani as guards and law enforcement. They thought they were respected partners, but found that they were more like slaves and the Uldani had been holding some of them captive and experimenting on them. The Drixonian warriors, who are the most feared warriors in the galaxy, had an uprising and fought for their freedom. However, the Uldani captured some and want them to reproduce, so they can bring up a new army of Drixonian warrior slaves who can be shaped into exactly what the Uldani want.

The book was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Heather Costa and Jeffrey Kafer. Heather has a bit of a raspy voice and sounds like she is reading more than talking naturally, but she isn’t bad. Jeffrey has a decent voice and speaks at a good cadence for an alien. Though more chapters were told in Valerie’s point of view and I wasn’t too fond of her male voice, it sounded a bit like a man who inhaled helium.

The story was good, but not too involved. I think the world building and character development could have been better, it all seemed a bit rushed. The entire series was on sale, so I am hoping the books get better than this one. It wasn’t bad, just a bit unoriginal for an alien romance.
