Publisher's Summary

One pre-apocalyptic Earth. One desperate space mission to find a solution. One unexpected alien. 

When Dr. Sakota Thorell signed onto the mission to scout out a new, habitable planet, she knew discovering extraterrestrial life was always a possibility. But she never expected to find an alien adrift in space, nor for that alien to be so intriguing. Sakota feels an instant and undeniable attraction to Astraeus, but he represents a million possibilities, and just as many threats.

There are others hunting Astraeus, and his rescue may cost Earth its last hope.

Outstanding Story!

I absolutely loved this sci-fi romance filled with adventure, suspense and action. There are quite a few surprises in this tale that you won’t see coming. In addition to the two awesome main characters, there are ancillary characters that you will initially hate and then come to respect and several that you will care about very much as you become fearful for their survival.

Pre-Apocalyptic earth meets Aliens

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

Sci-fi is one of my fave genres, so this is a great novel for anyone that enjoys that type of book. It had a very mythological meet the future kind of feel to it!

The narrator did a great job of delivering the tale and making the listeners feel like we're taking the journey with them. Great character development and writing by the author.

Really Good Story

This book was really good, although to me not the typical paranormal romance. It was so funny when the men from the ship were trying to carry Astraeus and they thought he weighed about 400 pounds. Astraeus was so kind and gentle. You knew this when he shared his memories with Sakota. Rutledge was a horrible person, who gets what he deserves. What Astraeus said sums it up about humans: He said it disheartens him to see how poorly we treat each other and how shallow our people can become. We are an exasperating species. Love and compassion exist among us yet brilliant souls are treated like filth because of the color of their skin, geniuses are scorned because of their sexual orientation, wars are waged when one religion condemns another for not holding the same beliefs. It amazed Astraeus that humans are able to function when animosity runs rampant among humans. If only humans could see this. Everyone needs to read this book and take something from it. I would definitely recommend this book

Steve Campbell did a good job with the narration.

Had a problem with the ending

I loved this book...right up until the ending paragraphs. What started out as a great alien adventure, with the suspension of reality that all science fiction must entail, took at right turn a Albuquerque. I can't be specific, since to do so would give too much of the plot away, but the final showdown and the people left standing when the dust cleared made absolutely no sense.

I absolutely enjoyed the narration though. It was imaginative and distinct. Campbell was able to put you right in the scene.

Even though I was not a fan of the ending, I'm invested enough to want to continue with the series.

Thrilling ride of a sci-fi. I loved it!

This audio book sucked me in from start to finish. The narrator did a great job with all the characters, and I had to listen until I was done. Brilliant story and epic adventure with some clean romance thrown into the mix. There are lots of twists I wasn't expecting. Highly enjoyable to listen to!

Nice Sci-Fi Story

I enjoyed the story...but it is a little too much like a Romance novel for my taste.

Good story, narration is lacking.

I really enjoyed the story. An alien shows up on a space station and you slowly find out more and more about him. Throw in a little action and romance, you get this book.
However, the narration struggles to carry it. Listening to him try a British accent is painful. And his Egyptian accent sounds Indian. With a better narrator, possibly a female considering the MC is one, this would be way better.

At my request, I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
