Melissa's Review:

Kara Michaels is an everyday nurse that's dealing with Earth being invaded by aliens. The aliens supposed peace didn't last long before they decided to destroy things and enslave humans. Trying her best to survive on her own, Kara roams in hopes she can find her brother and father. Then one day Kara is fighting one of the bug eyed aliens (Vymaln) only to be rescued by a hunky man. It comes as a shock to her that her knight in shining armor is an alien. He's not the same as the ones trying to take over Earth, his mission is to destroy Vymaln. Though their conversation is a bit rocky at times in the beginning, Aiodhan Reil picks up more and more English as the book progresses. He doesn't get it 100% right even at the end, there are words he gets wrong occasionally. In some cases it lead to amusement, others it was endearing and it also left a bit more realistic vibe to the story.

I'm not really a huge alien fan when it comes to books, and I know quite a few of my readers aren't either. I will tell you that Aiodhan reads more like a human alpha male. He's possessive, he wants things done his way, and he's a warrior. I found myself enjoying his character and wondering what he'd do next. Kara and Aiodhan worked well together, and it lead to an enjoyable read. The Seeker is one of my top post apocalyptic stories to date. I will admit that I love Sandy James's work enough that I'd follow it into any genre though. I'd recommend this read if you enjoy alien or post-apocalyptic romance.

  1. This sounds like a great story. I've read alien themed books before and really enjoyed it. I will have to grab a copy of this.

  4. So I'm guessing it's not very sci fi like weird alien sex stuff? I can't imagine having sex with say, a Martian, or a dude with tentacles.

    1. haha nope, he's more human like. The other aliens (the bad ones) are more bug like and no sexy times with them *gags*

  5. It is always a good sign when there is an aspect of the story you go in not liking, but you end up loving the story (like you with the aliens). Great review.
