Publisher's Summary

Brestille of Aiyrn
They've been raiding our planet for generations, but I didn't believe the rumors about twins being bad luck - at least not until the day Gvynette and I were taken. The Terrans snatched us from our home world, brought us to this remote planet, and turned us into guinea pigs, poking and prodding us for their own purposes. I know now that we can never go home. I might have just given up if it hadn't been for the strange new alien I met here. There's something that intrigues me about him. The connection we share is special - that much was clear from the moment we met - or else the scientists are up to more dirty tricks and all of this is just simulated. I don't know who to trust anymore.
Derresch of Belor
I wasn't supposed to be taken. I should be fighting the Terrans - in a year's time I would have finished my training and been off to war. But now I'm trapped here on this XenoStation with all of the primitive races that are usually the ones being subjected to this kind of inhumane experimentation. I was ready to go down in a blaze of glory, to take as many Terrans with me as I could, but then I met this tough little Aiyurna girl - naïve as you please but strong, defiant even - who made me feel oddly protective. I don't know if I can help her - or if she'll even want me once she finds out what I really am, but she's made me want to go on living, and for now that's enough.
In the last chapter you will encounter the biggest twist yet. All the buildup of the previous two chapters will come to a jaw-dropping end.

Any additional comments?

While I liked the concept of the story line, I thought this would be so much better by the synopsis. It had so much potential, it just didn’t follow through. The story just didn't hold my attention. The story was okay. Not bad, not good. Just okay.

While this is not an in depth complicated story, for a book that is almost 6 hours long the writing should not feel disjointed. A little more in depth story and information would have gone a long way. Your kidnapped by Aliens, experimented on, put into "Dome's" to live, you find out there are other "Dome's" there are hundreds of more people just like you and you just accept it. The story would have been more interesting if the subjects had more of a backbone. I kept waiting for something "more" to happen.

This is listed as a standalone book with no cliffhanger. If I had purchased the book I would have returned it. With so many others books out there, I would pass on this one. I really hate to put down an author's work but this is an unbiased review.

Addison Spear does the narration for this book. She does a good job. She has a very distinct voice you recognize immediately. Good character voices.

Not Your Typical Sci-Fi Romance

I don't like giving bad reviews, but I have to be honest, this story did not capture or hold my attention. Both the plot, and characters were underdeveloped.

When Brestille, her sister, and boyfriend were taken by the Terrans, everyone just gave up, and accepted their fate. All the characters acted meek and submissive. I would like to have seen more conflict or the characters standing up for themselves.

After Brestille was released into the enclosure she meets another boy? and forgets all about her boyfriend from her old planet and starts seeing Derresch. Their relationship lacked passion and romance. It felt like we were just following the characters as they do mundane day to day activities. Derresch came across as standoffish, and when he decide he wants to fight, he's taken away and never seen again. After Derresch was taken away, Brestille, starts thinking of her boyfriend from her home planet, and finally starts searching for him?

I think the plot would have been more exciting if Brestille's character focused on one boyfriend. They meet, fall in love, have some type of conflict, resolve conflict and then have a HEA.

I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review and don't believe in encouraging others not to read or listen to a book simply because I did not enjoy the story; however, I would not recommend this story to my friends.
