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?


  1. I really like the covers in this series! I'm not much a sci-fi fan, but I still want to try this series out sometime. :)

    1. You should, I really enjoyed the first book in this series!

  2. Ooo, yes! I actually just got this one last week, which was pretty cool. It's entirely too early for me to read it though, with the blog schedule O_O Discipline, I tell you...

    I hope you enjoy Invaded when you read it! Hopefully sooner rather than later :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. I am horrible with discipline, I got an ARC at BookCon that isn't due to be out until February 2015 and I read and reviewed it already because I was so impatient! And thank you, I am hoping to get and ARC of it!

  3. Ooh, this reminds me that I still need to read the first book! I've heard mixed things about it, but I hope to give it a try soon. And I also wanted to thank you for your kind comment on my blog! It was so helpful and so what I needed to hear. So, thank you again! :)
