Invaded (Alienated, #2)
The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.

The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

2015 is a long way off y'all. Like, galaxies away...

What are you impatiently waiting for?


  1. I have heard both good and bad about book 1. I have been curious about it, though, and am often temped to pick it up when I see it at the store. So you think I should?

    These covers are so much fun, too!

  2. Jenna, ALIENATED was a surprise hit for me and I loved it! I may gone a little overboard with the fan casting and the playlist in my review, but... :)

  3. You are really loving the Yoda pics lately.

    Something you must tell me there is?

  4. Hahahahha, I love that Yoda thingy! Yep, I agree, Impatient, I am too for this one!!
    Great pick, Jen!

  5. Impatient, I am, as well! Really enjoyed Alienated and would really like this one now!
