Earth is attacked by an alien race, and billions of humans are annihilated. Some are captured and brought aboard spaceships to be sold as slaves. In a holding cell, a small group of humans and a small group of Matirans, join together to escape their captors. While doing this, two of them, one Human, and one Matiran, discover that they are prophesied to be together to unify their two races and bring peace to their people.
I was very pleasantly surprised at how well this novel was written. The plot was developed thoroughly, the language the aliens spoke was not too different than ours which helped humanize them, and the characters were very likable. Alexandra Bock, finds herself mysteriously drawn to Gryf, fights it briefly but their circumstances draw them together. Gryf was such a likable guy! His every action was for the better of the group and totally selfless. He was a hard guy to hate. Luckily, although an alien, anatomically, and physically, Matirans were very humanoid. The only difference being their blue skin. I could overlook blue skin for a well built, all around handsome, good guy! Their enemy is extremely unlikeable, which makes me root for Alex and Gryf even more. This is a classic tale of good versus evil, falling in love with an alien and saving two planets. Seriously, though, it was a good book!
If you like romances with a bit of a science fiction twist, this was a good one! This is the first book I’ve read by Lea Kirk, but it won’t be my last!
