He was suppost to be the one to show her his home, but he can't do this without mending the alliance. With the threats from HALO growing everyday, as well as the attemps on his life, Aelyx feels jostled and anxious. Will humans except his alien race and form an alliance, or will they turn against his people? Will The Way stay true to their word and aid Earth? Will he ever get to go home and see his l'ihan again? With The Way pushing him to mend the alliance, Aelyx doesn't know what will happen next. But he does know one thing, that he misses Cara now more then ever.


Melissa Landers simply took my breath away, again. With her amazing creativity and imagination, Invaded simply came to life right before my eyes. I was a little doubtful about this one, knowing that some authors struggle to engage readers when writing a sequel, but that is not the case this time. I loved reading about Cara's adventures on an alien planet, and Aelyx's journey to mend the alliance. But the most amazing part in the whole story was Melissa's ability to keep the long distance relationship alive between Cara and Aelyx. This was a very fast read for me, and I highly recommend if you read the first book, Alienated. Or if you like an action-packed romance, full of leaps and sometimes falls. I'm pleased to say that with Invaded, Melissa has captured my attention, and has left me wanting more!
