Audiobook Review: Lost to the Alien Lord (Lords of Destra, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lost to the Alien Lord by Ella Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I signed up for a research mission with five other women. Instead, we crashed on an alien planet with too many dangers to count. Separated from the other women, I’m on my own until a huge alien with color-changing skin and a massive sword gets me out of a bad spot. I don’t understand Savair’s language, but I think he’s under the impression that I’m his.

I am NOT his. I’m a divorced scientist with no time for such nonsense. But if he can help me find the others in my group then perhaps I can play at being “his” for a while. It’s not a hardship. He’s the sexiest male I’ve ever met with a jawline to die for, but there’s no way I’ll fall for this guy. Nope. Not a chance…

Jetta makes me ache. I desire her the moment I pull her from a Brakken meat trap. Her soft, warm body awakens hungers long banked. But my Sola, the living ship I am bound to, is dying, and thus, so am I. I must find a way to save my Sola and my mate, or none of us will survive.

This is book one of the Lords of Destra series. Each is a complete story with no cliffhangers or cheating. My books always have consent and a happy ending. Cheers!

The heroine: Jetta – She works for Earth Explorations, Inc. on a research mission in outer space with five other women. They are on their way to Clarion 4 on the Axion 9 research vessel. They plan to spend a year on the planet to see if it will be an appropriate location for a human outpost and trade base. Though they crash land on a dangerous alien planet on the way.

The Hero: Lord Savair – He travels the galaxy on Sola, his living ship. The ship is dying and so is Savair since they are bound together. He is from the Destrin people, from Destra, the most brutal planet where only the strongest, toughest and most vicious survived. He and his hunters were in the forest, finding food for his people. He was hunting a Brakken within his territory which was the largest since he was the one that was bound to his Sola.

The Story: The world building was pretty great in this book. The details of the escape pods on the ship were terrific, including the the description of the crash and where Jetta landed. Trees with clear iridescent leaves, the sap that leaked from a broken branch and smelled bitter. I loved the fact that the escape pod sprayed her with a sweet smelling drug so she didn’t panic and she was equipped with a headset that was computerized and was able to tell her that her ship mates were not anywhere near her.

When Savair sees the fallen vessel, a scent stirs something in him that has been dormant for a long time, when he finds a Brakken meat trap, with a female inside, one with the same scent that stirred him. Though I did find it odd that the Brakken which Savair was hunting, was a beast that seemed at least somewhat sentient since they laid traps and fought with weapons.

Everything was explained very well, though I found myself wondering a few things, like why they didn’t take the ship to find the rest of their people. It was eventually explained, the explanation didn’t make much sense. Though overall, I really enjoyed this one, it had a great story and was very original, great characters and some steamy goodness.

This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and narrated by Tor Thom and Elle Sonali. Elle has a clear and feminine voice which I enjoyed and Tor Thom has a very deep voice which lends itself well to the genre of alien romance. I have always liked his narration and he does a good job on this one as well.
