Narration Type: Duet Narration
The heroine: Crystal – she still has PTSD from her last relationship which ended five years ago, so after she was abducted by aliens who were going to give them away as prizes in a gladiator ring, then being rescued by the Luxirians, she wants to stay as far away from the males as she can and just wait until they can return her home. Crystal likes to draw and sketch which helps her with her anxiety, especially after nightmares about her ex-boyfriend.
The Hero: Cruxan – One of the ambassador’s of Luxiria, he is one of the Prime Leaders trusted men who overlooks the roughest outpost on the outer reaches of Luxirian territory. He is a bit of a playboy with the ladies and loves a good fight. He is the one the Prime Leader Vaxa’an trusts to resolve situations like finding the huge Luxirian crystal after it was stolen (it was the only fuel source capable of traveling to Earth to return the females home.
The Story: When Crystal and Erin are stolen from the apartment where they were kept since being rescued, Vaxa’an tasks Cruxan with retrieving the women. Since Cruxan’s sire betrayed their race, Cruxan has been trying to make amends for his fathers actions and has since become the fixer and one of Vaxa’an’s most trusted ambassador’s. So he goes after the women and finds Crystal whom he immediately discovers is his fated mate.
I read the last book in the series before this one, so I already knew the story of Jaxor’an and Erin, and knew that Cruxan had found Crystal soon after Jaxor had taken the two women, but I was waiting for this book to find out more of the story. I liked the fact that they ended up having to hike back after Jaxor stole Cruxan’s hovercraft. I wasn’t too fond of the past abuse storyline, but overall this was a good book and I liked the journey.
This book was told in dual points of view via duet narration, and was narrated by Sierra Grace and Tristan Josiah. I like both of these narrators and the fact that it is done in duet narration, where the male does all the male voices and the female does all the female no matter whose POV the chapter is told from, makes it all the better.
