First of all, I mistakenly believed from the description of this book that it was a science fiction novel. It's not. Technically, it is a romance. There is so little knowledge of technology represented in this book that the mind link device could just as easily be a piece of alien wizardry as it could be of science.
As a romance, the novel should allow the reader to vicariously experience Ashley V falling in love with with the alien ZXQ-One/Sam. We should learn who these people are from the way they act, what they value, and the world they live in. However, there is no depth to either the characters or the story. The basic story is told so starkly as to be simplistic. It is as if the author were given an outline of a story to write and used the fewest possible words to achieve that goal. Due to a lack of foreshadowing, key plot points appear as needed out of nowhere. Need a place to escape to? Poof! Here is a child who needs rescuing and he will lead you a safe place.
In spite of the lack of detail and logic in this novel, it did hold my interest. I give partial credit to the narrator who did an excellent job, with a nod to the author who shows potential if she makes the effort to grow as a story teller.
