“Saving him meant saving her colony…”
has been saving people her whole life from a chick in the ventilation
pipes to her mentally ill brother when his mind drifts back to Old
Earth. She meets her match when she finds a gorgeous alien man aboard
the arachnid ship. Captured after a failed attempt to save his people,
his spirit is broken, craving only vengeance. To save her colony, Lyra
must save his body and soul.
Lyra’s lifemate, Tauren, is jealous
of her obsession with the alien man and will do anything in his power to
break them apart. While they travel to the arachnid’s home world to
defeat the mother brain once and for all, they must set aside their
differences and work as a team. But, can Tauren be trusted?
Aubrie Dionne is becoming one of those authors that I cannot say no to. Her books are phenomenal. The third in her Paradise reclaimed series was just as good as her first two. And the great thing about this series is that you really do not have to read the first two, although it would give you a heck of a lot of background information, but you do not HAVE TO. Aubrie does an outstanding job of reminding the reader of the past events but not to a point where the story gets boring just to a point where my memory is jogged and then she moves right along.
And speaking of moving along, this book picks up seriously right after they escaped from the horrific spider aliens. The main characters are still reeling from the affects of that escape and awards are still being given out. More importantly, an alien that was trapped on that spaceship was rescued and has just woken up!
This is just the beginning of this book. I was already completely enthralled and couldn’t wait to find out what Aubrie had in store this time. All of her stories are filled with horror and some tragedy but the characters always come out in the end better than when they started.
We also get to see more arachnids, which I positively love! This is like Alien in book form, so fantastically written that I felt like I could imagine them! And since I’m a lover of spiders this was fabulous for me!
The ending seemed maybe a little cut off this time. I still have some questions where in her first two it seemed that although they ended on cliff hangers, I felt most of my questions were answered. This one seemed like it left some things unanswered on purpose. But being a huge fan of Aubrie’s, I’m kind of hoping that was the point and we’re going to get a book four!
Absolutely recommended for anyone who enjoys a bit of dystopian (although it doesn’t seem that bad), with some sci-fi, horror, and a touch of romance!
Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be “A concert flutist” when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.
