Publisher's Summary

Ashlyn MacLeod's life is all she ever wanted. She lives in London, attends a world-renowned university, and is one step away from getting her PhD in archaeology. Everything is going exactly as planned, until a humiliating rejection forces her home to the Scottish Highlands. Struggling with the loss of such a huge opportunity, she begins an excavation on her family's rural property, in an effort to finish her dissertation and save her career. As she digs into the wet dirt, she unearths much more than she bargained for.

The sight takes her breath away. She never could have imagined that she'd uncover a blue skinned man, seemingly buried alive under tons of rock for an unimaginably long period of time.

The man, Reus, as she would come to know him, is lean, muscled, and barely alive. When he finally takes his first breath and opens his eyes, she immediately feels captivated by him. Who is he? What is he? And why does she feel such a magnetic connection to him?

As Ashlyn and Reus both struggle with their new reality, they must answer two essential questions: what happens if he's discovered, and how will they get him home?

3.5 stars. Listen to ADRIFT first.

UNEARTHED is a standalone sci-fi romance but second in The Sirilians series. UNEARTHED gives away the plot of book 1, ADRIFT, so if you want to be wowed by ADRIFT, I recommend reading it first. I loved it because the writing is crisp; the story is original and utterly riveting to read because of the gripping romantic mystery it contains.

UNEARTHED was engaging and romantic too, but not as compelling as ADRIFT. It also included scenes direct from ADRIFT and this annoyed me because ADRIFT was fresh in my mind. While some of those scenes helped provide background, I thought the same information could have been conveyed another way.

Narrator Lessa Lamb performed beautifully. I loved her representations of all the characters. The story is set in Scotland and she seamlessly moved through Scottish and English accents (while keeping her native north American accent to narrate the non-dialogue parts of the story); and she represented all the characters admirably.

I recommend the Sirilians Series and look forward to more work crafted by this author and this narrator.

Unusual and delightful romance!

This second book in Nicole Krizek’s series was just delightful to listen to. I love sci-fi romance, and this author has a way of making the characters and situations so believeable. The heroine is a Scottish archeologist who is home to do a dig on her family’s farm where there is a “fairy mound”. It’s not her first choice after losing out on another dig, but she needs it to finish her PhD and there’s family dynamics that are a little unsteady as well. When she begins her excavation, what she finds is astounding- a man who comes to life after she accidentally bumps something and he’s blue! The story of their romance despite him being able to speak her language, knowing he can’t stay on Earth because he’s an alien and how long he’s obviously been there make for a fantastic, entertaining story that I loved. The narration was perfectly done. I hope that the author writes more in this series!
