Lasaran- No Spoilers






Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Dianne Duvall brings listeners the first novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, intrigue, humor, and romance.
When an ally reveals that his younger sister was seized and is being held prisoner on Earth, Taelon descends upon the blue planet, intent on freeing her and exacting vengeance. However, all does not go as planned. Before he can find her, Taelon is captured and becomes the subject of torturous experiments. For what feels like an eternity, all he knows is pain and fury...until a mind tentatively touches his own and a woman's voice forever changes his world.
After suffering tragic losses, Lisa is finally beginning to carve out a future for herself when chance sends her to the Anomalous Cognition Research Institute. What at first appears to be a benign organization instead turns out to be a government facility harboring a much darker intent. Lisa discovers this too late and soon becomes the unwilling subject of a terrifying experiment. Just as fear and desperation threaten to consume her, a deep, compelling voice penetrates the looming insanity and lends her hope.


Audiolovers Review


This story will take you on an intergalactic race and leave you begging for more.

Is there any genre that Dianne Duvall can’t write? I know, Technically she has written Alien before with Ami, but that was still focusing on the immortal guardian aspect of the genre. This story, while yes we see our favorite IGs pop up, they are set aside from the story. This is the story of an alien on Earth. Detained and tortured. This is an alien that falls in love with a human. This isn’t the same as the stories we’ve read before.
Lisa is sweet and strong all at once. She is the type of heroine that I can relate to. She has good instincts and is cautious. She doesn’t fight in a physical manner but she fights with intelligence. She can stand up for herself but also step back and acknowledge that she can’t do something. Like “so- if you go out and die who will help the rest of us?” Or similar.
Taelon is strong in his ability to listen to her. When she says “I’ve gotta do this alone stay put” he acknowledges her intelligence. And that my friends is HOT HOT HOT.
There are sexy times and they aren’t something to make you blush too deep a scarlet but they are gonna turn you a darker shade of pink. They are perfect for this couple.
The most fun character in this for me is Leah. She’s so maternal and it’s just nice. It’s nice that she’s just open and kind to Lisa when she shows up.

The gifted one/ immortal guardian lineage does come to play somewhat. After all, we can’t have any book involving Ami and her family without it. While it’s there- it isn’t something you have to know about to understand the story. If you want Amis backstory after you’ve listened you can go grab it but this is a fresh series that is able to be read or listened to as a stand alone.
