๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Loved it on Audio, and I knew I would...With Full-Cast narration, it totally rocks.  If you've ever thought about trying out an Audiobook, this is good series to start with, the only issue may be that it could you spoil you for most books which only have one, maybe two, narrators.  I read an ARC of this earlier in 2018 and my review can be seen here.

REVIEW BY ANGI - Alien Blood by Stan Schatt
Alien Blood - Stan Schatt

Alien Blood is a roller coaster of an adventure that looks behind today's headlines to discover the truth behind several so-called conspiracy theories. America's secret pact with the Grays and the Draconians to permit human abductions in return for technology is in danger now that both alien races fear the return of a far more ancient race.

 

Ann Swift suffered from frequent alien abductions before killing herself, and now  her daughter astrobiologist Heather Swift is in great danger because her DNA and special talents might provide clues about the returning race. Did those aliens bio-engineer hybrid humans and leave clues as to their own abilities? When government agents kidnap her, it is up to her brother and ex-SEAL Ben Swift to rescue her and learn the secrets hidden in their DNA. Along the way he discovers the dark secrets hidden in Area 51 and Dulce as well as a secret base on Mars. Along the way he learns that aliens from several worlds already reside on Earth and that those closest to you might actually not be human.

Good Story and Good Characters
Under His Skin (Alien Encounters) - Stacey O'Neale

Annabelle/bells had won TV’s Cupcake Wars. her bakery business-Yummy Bakery- was booming. Kaden Is Bells best friend and also an alien- that no one is to know. Kaden and his two younger brothers had landed on earth two years ago. They are refugees from a destroyed planet. The first year Kaden and his brothers were in an FBI facility learning how to blend in and live among humans. They were than given IDs and set up in Germantown. One of the rules for Kaden and his brothers were none could know they were aliens or form any romantic attachments. Bells met Kaden a year ago when he couldn't resist going in her bakery. Bells is very attracted to Kaden but he seems determined to keep her in the friend zone. Kaden tries to keep Bells safe by pushing her away.   But Kaden really does wanted to kiss Bells. Than Kaden finds out Bells is going on a date with someone else. He than can’t help himself and kisses her and his non-beating heart starts to beat for the first time which mean Bells is his mate and they mate for life.

I liked this book. It was a sweet good read. I liked the fast pace and plot. I liked that Bells would stand up for herself. I chuckled at times when reading this. I loved Kaden and Bells together and how they interacted with each other. This had some great writing in it. I liked watching Kaden’s and Bells relationship grow. I really enjoyed the ending. I loved that Kaden felt he had to protect his younger brothers safe. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it

Alien

You wanna hear an undeniable fact ? Alien trilogy is absolutely and undoubtedly the scariest science fiction horror trilogy ever written, ever created, and ever told ! I remember how scared I was when I saw the Alien for the very first time, and how scared I was when I saw the Alien for the second, and for the third time. The Alien creature scared the bejesus out of me, and I still wanted to see it again and again, for I knew back then that I was watching a masterpiece and not just some science fiction movie with some less known actors and actresses. That said, the book trilogy does not disappoint, it brings Alien creature back to life and is equally scary and terrifying to read about it as it is to watch it. So if you're Alien fan, love all the movies, even the fourth installment, I immensely recommend that you take some of your precious time and devour Alan Dean Foster's book and revive all the feelings that you've had when you've seen the movie Alien and the Alien creature for the very first time.

Bonus Feature: The end of the Audiobook has an illuminating interview between Rebecca Solar and Marissa Meyer
Winter - Marissa Meyer

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

 

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mark her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

 

 

Winter despises her stepmother and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

 

 

 

 

 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 

It took me forever to finish this series...and it's all because of this daunting book.  Seriously, this is like 23 hours long on Audio.  833 pages on kindle...but, hey I finally did it, and in December, no less, the busiest month all year long for me, and most everyone else.  Was it worth the 23 hours (technically more like 17 with the speed I listened on)  I spent on it...yeah, mostly.  

 

While I liked Jacin fine, I wasn't especially fond of Winter, she has this naivety, almost child-like demeanor that kind of got on my nerves.  Thankfully, the story isn't always from her pov.  We have lots of different pov's in this final book of the quartet, not including Fairest and Stars Above...the novella's as MM calls them.  The ending of the climactic battle scene has a scene that had me thinking Cinder deserved to be dead for her blatant stupidity...but I can't say more, just in case someone out there hasn't read these books.  Overall, fav characters in this series will always be Carswell Thorne and Iko, but that seems to be the case with everyone.  If MM ever decides to do a spin-off series...I would love some adventures with Thorne...as long as Cress can grow a backbone, she can be involved too.
