Invaded (Alienated #2) by Melissa Landers
Release Date: February 3, 2015
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: 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?
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed Alienated last year so I was pumped to read Invaded! And I’m glad I did!
We are back with Aelyx and Cara. This time, Aelyx is living on Earth and Cara is living on L’eihr. I also enjoyed all the side characters this time around! Aelyx is trying his best to stay sane but with people trying to kill him its hard! And Cara has a lot of troubles also. She’s trying to get more rights for the coming humans on L’eihr. She also has to deal with a few new people in her life who aren’t what they seem.
I really enjoyed the plot of this one, and the characters once again. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give spoilers if you haven’t read Alienated yet. If I say too much, then I’ll tell you too much backstory! This is definitely a series you must read!!!
I also still like Cara’s family. And I liked the new guy whose protecting Aelyx! He was a sweetie! But I still like Aelyx more!
I think this series will continue and I’ll continue reading it!
Overall: I enjoyed it! I think I did like Alienated a bit more. Mostly because Cara and Aelyx were around each other more often. But I did enjoy the interactions in Invaded between them!
Cover: Love it! These covers are seriously so beautiful! And they are so bright and cheerful! Love it!
What I’d Give It:
