Audiobook Review: The Alien’s Savior (Drixonian Warrior, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Alien’s Savior by Ella Maven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“I’ll do anything to make sure she’s safe. Even from me.”

Naomi: All my life, I’ve been protected. First by my older brother, and now by a crew of women on a strange alien planet who insist on protecting my virtue. Who cares about virtue? I have to make the most of this situation, and if that means shacking up with a big blue guy, I’m not opposed. So when I find that the very alien who I’m convinced is my mate has gone off on a reckless mission, I risk it all to bring him back myself.

Gar: Anger doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel when a fragile female puts herself in harm’s way for me. And not just any female—of course she’s the one I can’t resist. But I don’t deserve her, and I’ll never bind her to my doomed destiny. Except now she’s in danger, and if it’s the last thing I do in my cursed life, I’ll make sure she’s safe. Even from me.

The heroine: Naomi – She was 5’1” tall and worked construction for her families business. After being abducted from Earth, and brought to an alien planet to be used as a breeder, she was rescued along with a group of human females by the Night Kings, a group of Drixonian warriors. Naomi has had a bit of a crush on Gar, though he kept his distance from her.

The Hero: Gar – We saw him in previous books as an exceptional Drixonian warrior and the best hunter of the Night Kings. He also has no intention of finding his mate from the human women they have rescued. He is a grumpy mountain of a man, but he was also very protective of the human females. He always acted strange around Naomi and rarely looked at her or spoke to her.

The Story: Gar feels that he is not worthy of Naomi, though he basically stalks her since she is so beautiful to him and the one thing he wanted most in the world. Though he doesn’t want her to ever see the flecked up stuff in his head. He wanted to keep her away from his darkness. It didn’t help matters when his feet carried him to her window each morning, to look upon her and torture himself by watching what he wouldn’t allow himself to have.

I liked Gar from the previous books. He is so grouchy and growly but he was nice to Miranda from The Alien’s Revenge. I love that he has a dark side and he is still an honorable Drixonian warrior. This book took a bit of a turn from the plots of the previous books in that the Drixonian’s found out at the end of the last book that some of their race whom they thought had been killed in the war with the Uldani, were in fact alive and had been sold to other alien races by the Uldani. So another war is imminent. I liked this plot and where it took both Gar and Naomi after she hid in the compartment on his bike when he left on a clandestine mission outside the walls.

Like the previous books in this series, this one was told in both main characters points of view via dual narration. The narrators again were Jeffrey Kafer and Heather Costa who both do a good job. Jeffrey Kafer seemed to have a much deeper voice in this book, which I really enjoyed and it fit the grumpy Gar very well.
