Let me say right off, this alien romance was very sumptuous. It was packed with a little of everything, from the mystery of a race, to fist pumping action, jealousy, to fear so strong that the alien race on AlbaterRa would rather destroy all humans and their home world without much consideration. Surprisingly, it was also the human’s first contact with an alien species of any kind. The lessons to be learnt here were on both sides and it took a trail filled with prejudice and violence before things got sorted out. Tabitha, the female character didn’t impress me too much, she was a bit of a softy with little or no fighting spirit, she cried too much in my opinion and was very mouthy sometimes without much thought. Rex the warrior, leader of his Kingdom, had his hands full where she was concerned, in more ways than one. The other characters were very impressive even the old guys like Torik kicked butt. This book was well written it had a great storyline and was very entertaining, hats off to the Author Ashley L.
