Publisher's Summary

A few years ago, there was an invasion.

Hordes of tall, grey aliens with tusks arrived in spaceships the size of cities. Before the news channels went dark, humans named the creatures orcs.

The human armies fought and failed. War crimes were committed on both sides. Eventually, when food supplies failed, society collapsed and the government was overthrown. Humans turned on each other. Nowhere was safe. The orcs rounded up the survivors and locked them away in refugee camps. In the fullness of time, some women had little grey babies.

In a field that had been repurposed as a prison, Kari watched a screaming, cursing woman give birth to Max. Afterwards, the woman shakily got to her feet and left him there to die - alone and unwanted. Even if he was only half human, and Kari was living as a conquered species in one of the many refugee camps on Earth, none of that was his fault. He was just a baby. She couldn’t bring herself to leave him there. So she adopted him.

Max wasn’t the only grey child in the place. Kari and the others raising grey children had formed their own family group, which was eventually noticed. Suddenly, they were assigned orc fathers and taken from the camp where they had been living. This asshole may be the official father, but, as far as Kari is concerned, if he thinks that means he's part of their family, he is mistaken. One way or another, Kari has to figure out how to make this work. Her son needs her to keep him safe.

When part of her extended family is brought to her new home, she has a couple of allies. Kari slowly starts to understand that maybe the orcs aren’t as monstrous as they seem. She will have to face her past and come to terms with her new reality before she can face her future.

Okay read, completely awkward intimacy

I liked the story, but the female main character was so indecisive all the way until the very end. It made any kind of intimacy so awkward and annoying. Either she's crying or whining over who knows what half the time, honestly I would have just left her by the end of the story. The kids were super cute though and the narrator did a good job for a single narration audio. Although I wouldn't want to re-read this one because of that redundant crying to whining thing the FMC likes to do. It just annoyed the crap out of me how often this went on with only a 7 hour read.

Impressive narrator performance unimpressive story

The hero deserved a better heroine. The hero was very accommodating and the heroine was sappy, scared and judgemental for almost the entire story. I won't be continuing this series 😤

Snooze fest

I very seldom leave a review. However, this book was so boring, repetitive, and the lead female character is so whiney it just made the story drag on and on and on. I’m so bummed I used one of my credits for this. Such a waste of time. Don’t waste your money on this.

Superbe

Not just another Alien scifi story.
No, this is a jewel of a book. There is a lot of depths and layers in the story. Love the book. It's a book who grabs you by the throat. You cannot just listen without feeling something. Such a great, fantastic storyline.

more sci-Fi less formula

Ah- a more "realistic" version of post apocalyptic romance if those words can go together? The world building is well done and the sci fi felt solid. I read book 2 then book 1- and the two a very different plots - completely fine to read these two out of order. Definitely will be looking for the continuation of this series.

Torn

Gave the overall book a 4 only because the main female character was annoying. Seemed like she complained all the time. it drove me nuts if it hadn't been for the the other characters I would of tossed it. It was a very good story. I hope the author writes more. I would recommend to others readers.

Actually a great book and worth listening

Great world building with a new take on an Alien invasion! This is like the introduction book to how these guys think and book two just brings more to the table. I actually read the second book first and then the first one. Refreshing and totally interesting! Read book two also!

A well-done story

Very good narration. Enjoyable story. Left some questions open for future books(?) but I think the romance was sufficiently, realistically and beautifully resolved. I would love to learn more about this world.





SPOILER WARNING!

The story contains discussions of rape and abuse. No rape is actually happening in book time line, merely the effects and aftermath. In my opinion everything was written (and narrated) with thought and respect. I cried a lot..
