It took them less than 12 hours to conquer Earth, and then 9 more years to finally demand what they’ve come here for—me.
Whatever dreams I have about my future are crushed within hours. The control I have over my life and my body is taken away.
I don’t get to plan my wedding.
I don’t even get to choose my husband.
I am stripped of my rights and my free will, and reduced to being nothing but the subject of their experiment.
The last thing I expect is to find love among the enemy. Tairan seems to be the only one who sees a person in me, although he appears to be keeping secrets from me, too.
When everything I hold dear is threatened, the only choice I have is to fight back. With no weapons or any combat skills, I will have to find a way to defend my love, my family, and our future from the evil that is in charge of our lives…
“I’ll live, love, and die at your side. Always.”
Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp
No matter the story genre, with this author the best thing to do is go with the flow and expect the unexpected. With that in mind and a fantastically compelling blurb in hand I dived in.
The outcome of a whole species rests on Bella’s and Tairan’s shoulders. Two separate people who have no choice but succumb to the will of others. Their treatment and captivity is questionable and somehow along the way a beautiful bond of friendship, compassion and ultimately love is forged.
This is by no means a light and fluffy read. It’s emotive and gritty and heartbreaking. Touching on raw emotions and pushing the boundaries of what’s decent, ethically right and morally acceptable. ‘Do the lives of the few outweigh the needs of the many?’
Marina Simcoe is a true wordsmith when it comes to creating worlds, characters and stories that push the boundaries. This book was all that and more…making for a fantastic and thrilling read that I did not and could not put down.
