Publisher's Summary

Brestille of Aiyrn

They've been raiding our planet for generations, but I didn't believe the rumors about twins being bad luck - at least not until the day Gvynette and I were taken. The Terrans snatched us from our home world, brought us to this remote planet, and turned us into guinea pigs, poking and prodding us for their own purposes. I know now that we can never go home. I might have just given up if it hadn't been for the strange new alien I met here. There's something that intrigues me about him. The connection we share is special - that much was clear from the moment we met - or else the scientists are up to more dirty tricks and all of this is just simulated. I don't know who to trust anymore.

Derresch of Belor

I wasn't supposed to be taken. I should be fighting the Terrans - in a year's time I would have finished my training and been off to war. But now I'm trapped here on this XenoStation with all of the primitive races that are usually the ones being subjected to this kind of inhumane experimentation. I was ready to go down in a blaze of glory, to take as many Terrans with me as I could, but then I met this tough little Aiyurna girl - naïve as you please but strong, defiant even - who made me feel oddly protective. I don't know if I can help her - or if she'll even want me once she finds out what I really am, but she's made me want to go on living, and for now that's enough.

In the last chapter you will encounter the biggest twist yet. All the buildup of the previous two chapters will come to a jaw-dropping end.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "Not Your Typical Sci-Fi Romance"


    I don't like giving bad reviews, but I have to be honest, this story did not capture or hold my attention. Both the plot, and characters were underdeveloped.

    When Brestille, her sister, and boyfriend were taken by the Terrans, everyone just gave up, and accepted their fate. All the characters acted meek and submissive. I would like to have seen more conflict or the characters standing up for themselves.

    After Brestille was released into the enclosure she meets another boy? and forgets all about her boyfriend from her old planet and starts seeing Derresch. Their relationship lacked passion and romance. It felt like we were just following the characters as they do mundane day to day activities. Derresch came across as standoffish, and when he decide he wants to fight, he's taken away and never seen again. After Derresch was taken away, Brestille, starts thinking of her boyfriend from her home planet, and finally starts searching for him?

    I think the plot would have been more exciting if Brestille's character focused on one boyfriend. They meet, fall in love, have some type of conflict, resolve conflict and then have a HEA.

    I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review and don't believe in encouraging others not to read or listen to a book simply because I did not enjoy the story; however, I would not recommend this story to my friends.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    While I liked the concept of the story line, I thought this would be so much better by the synopsis. It had so much potential, it just didn’t follow through. The story just didn't hold my attention. The story was okay. Not bad, not good. Just okay.

    While this is not an in depth complicated story, for a book that is almost 6 hours long the writing should not feel disjointed. A little more in depth story and information would have gone a long way. Your kidnapped by Aliens, experimented on, put into "Dome's" to live, you find out there are other "Dome's" there are hundreds of more people just like you and you just accept it. The story would have been more interesting if the subjects had more of a backbone. I kept waiting for something "more" to happen.

    This is listed as a standalone book with no cliffhanger. If I had purchased the book I would have returned it. With so many others books out there, I would pass on this one. I really hate to put down an author's work but this is an unbiased review.

    Addison Spear does the narration for this book. She does a good job. She has a very distinct voice you recognize immediately. Good character voices.

    "Not sure"

    I enjoy the Alien / abduction books pretty well. However, i just could not get into this book. This one is quite different from others i have read. This book was about twins getting abducted from another planet, yet they are human,along with others. They are experimented on and then they placed in an area to live out there lives. Just not my type of book. I received this free for an honest review.

    "Alien Romance"

    Alien Romance this story was mostly about the twins. It just didn't hold my intention, but if you like alien Storylines give it a try.

    Story
    "Alien Kidnapping.."
    Any additional comments?


    The story is mainly about the twin sisters Brestille and Gvynette.

    It seems the Terrans aliens have been raiding their planet for many years.

    When they are attacked, Brestille was on the Astamorr Mountain with Ariyo, her

    special friend.

    Brestille tries to find her sister Gvynette telepathically and as they connect, they lose

    consciousness.

    They awake to a new world and Brestille wants to find out what happened to Ariyo.

    This book is full of Suspense, a bit of Romance and several Twists and Turns making

    it an interesting and a highly entertaining read or listen.


    Addison Spear did well with the narration.

    Story
    "Alien: Taken"

    The storyline was interesting but not developed enough. The characters were decent but could have been stronger. What I couldn't quite figure out was the fact that the aliens were abducting women to try to find a way to make their alien female fertile so why abduct men also? There needed to be more info on why men were taken as well.

    The narrator did a good job narrating

    I was received this audible from the author, narrator or producer in exchange for an honest unbiased review

    Story
    "Not my usual YA"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    Unfortunately, the story seemed very anti-climatic the entire time. When the Tarrons come and abduct her (and her boyfriend and sister), you'd think there would be some excitement. Maybe some resistance, some anger, some crying, pounding on your cell. Instead, she has the "I was captured and experimented on. Oh well" attitude which comes off a bit boring. Maybe I'm just used to the YA excitement of rebellious characters.

    The narrator did a great job, but she couldn't really save the story.

    "Interesting story But!!!"

    This story was confusing and a bit different than what I was expecting. I wasn't able to finish it. I believe it could have been written better and much clearer. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    Story
    "So, So, Book"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. My first book by Ms. Tobin and I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't an indepth book. It was pretty superficial. I could guess the ending not too far into the book. It had an interesting story, but I believe the story could have gotten a bit more involved. There really wasn't any suspense or thrill, or even heavy romance. I'm not sure what kind of book it is other than sci-fi. With so many books to choose from, I'm not sure I will read another Clara Tobin book. The narrator did a good job. I was able to distinguish between the characters, except for the twins and I guess that is to be expected.
