Publisher's Summary

For someone who thinks rocks are more interesting than men, geologist Alice is proven how very wrong she is. When a probe crashes to Earth near a dig site, Alice Clarkson thinks she has hit the jackpot of her gem collecting career finding a real life meteor to add to her collection. But this is no mere meteor. It's an alien probe designed to capture life; specifically female life.

Abducted and placed on sale in an alien slave market, Alice soon discovers the pleasures of being a captive in the arms of the sexiest alien man she's ever laid eyes on. Kerr, high commander of Kelon warriors raids a slaver station only to find a small human treasure he want to keep as his own.

Title Character's Accent is Horrible

Would you try another book from Angela Castle and/or Jennifer Cliff?

i don't think so. I enjoy unusual stories with aliens and other different characters but the story was predictable but the narration made it extremely difficult to listen to.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was predictable.

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Cliff’s performance?

Jennifer Cliff should not attempt accents.

Any additional comments?

I'm really glad I didn't waste a credit on this book because of the new Romance package.

Warriors of Kelon series.

What did you love best about Abducting Alice?

The story is one of my favourites and I like the whole series. Alice is the first to make the change from Earth to Kelon. She finds love with an amazing person on a new world in the midst of inter-galactic war.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Abducting Alice?

The best moments are Alice's rescues and teaching Kerr about love, human style.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator is terrible at an Australian accent. I hope she is not signed for the whole series. This should be re-recorded by someone who can read the Australian dialogue properly so Alice and her sister Tara sound like they come from Sydney and are different people. Alice is well educated and well traveled while Tara is not. The same problem occurs in the second book and in the introduction to the third book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, some of the scenes between Kerr and Alice and then when he rescues her a second timefrom the one who has chained her.

Any additional comments?

The narrator is terrible at an Australian accent. I hope she is not signed for the whole series.
This accent was almost enough to make me turn off the book. It is very disappointing when a story you like is so badly done.

Great story but I the narrator needs replaced

Would you consider the audio edition of Abducting Alice to be better than the print version?

I bought this book when it came out and was delighted to see that it came out in audio format. The audio version is unabridged so it's exactly like the book but I was disappointed in the narrator.

What other book might you compare Abducting Alice to, and why?

There are a few alien abduction books out and about including fantastic works as Grim by M.K. Eidem and Jo's Journey by S.E. Smith.

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Cliff’s performance?

I didn't like the performance by Jennifer Cliff, the story didn't flow well and her Australian accent made the characters sound dumb and slow witted. I was disappointed that a book that I originally quite enjoyed left me feeling deflated.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't make a film of this book

Any additional comments?

To be honest this was not worth the money for the download.

Irritating female voice

Would you try another book written by Angela Castle or narrated by Jennifer Cliff?

I will always buy Angela Castle written books. However, I feel insulted by the way Alice is narrated. She isn't Australian. She makes Alice sound like a New Zealand Eliza Doolittle. It's ruining the flow of the story. It would have been better if she just used her regular tone, as THAT was pleasant to listen to.
