And today, I'm sharing this awesome story with you. Aubrie Dionne is on my auto-buy list, and I can definitely recommend any of her books, but particularly her Paradise Reclaimed series.
This is the third book in this series, and so far, it's my favourite. It follows Lyra, and her quest to get to know the beautiful alien. Sometimes I find it hard to get back into a series like this, where each book follows a different couple, but not this one. I was immediately drawn back into the world and the characters, even though it's been a while since I read the last book.
Aubrie Dionne writes characters with depth, in a beautifully described world. And it's a world that is so different to ours, a lush, colourful, tropical planet, where many dangers await.
Another thing I loved about this book was the introduction of Lyra's brother, and their relationship, as both grow and discover things about themselves throughout this story. It really added another dimension to the book, and I'm hoping we get to know her brother better in a future story.
This story was a trip away from normal life, into a world where everyone has the potential to be a hero.
“Saving him meant saving her colony…”
Lyra Bryan has been saving people her whole life from a chick in the ventilation pipes to her mentally ill brother when his mind drifts back to Old Earth. She meets her match when she finds a gorgeous alien man aboard the arachnid ship. Captured after a failed attempt to save his people, his spirit is broken, craving only vengeance. To save her colony, Lyra must save his body and soul.
Lyra’s lifemate, Tauren, is jealous of her obsession with the alien man and will do anything in his power to break them apart. While they travel to the arachnid’s home world to defeat the mother brain once and for all, they must set aside their differences and work as a team. But, can Tauren be trusted?
