Alliance blog tour - review

“Saving him meant saving her colony…”

Lyra Bryan has been saving people her whole life from a chick in the ventilation pipes to her mentally ill brother when his mind drifts back to Old Earth. She meets her match when she finds a gorgeous alien man aboard the arachnid ship. Captured after a failed attempt to save his people, his spirit is broken, craving only vengeance. To save her colony, Lyra must save his body and soul.

Lyra’s lifemate, Tauren, is jealous of her obsession with the alien man and will do anything in his power to break them apart. While they travel to the arachnid’s home world to defeat the mother brain once and for all, they must set aside their differences and work as a team. But, can Tauren be trusted?

My review:
Lyra Bryan is a hero amongst her people. She's saved them many times, and even in private, she's rescued her brother from the hold of his strange mental illness. Now she's rescued a gorgeous alien from the arachnids' ship and she can't get him out of her head. She risks punishment just to learn his name. Asteran. He's as beautiful as his name and just as brave. Asteran tells them of the danger Paradise 21 is still in from the arachnids. Lyra and her people won't survive a second battle with them. With Asteran's help, Lyra and a few teammates travel to the arachnids' home world to destroy them at their source, but will they even make it there alive to complete their mission?

An incredible final book for this sci-fi romance trilogy. This is my favorite one in the Paradise Reclaimed series. It's fast-paced, suspenseful, and beautifully written. The author's description can sweep you off your feet into this whole new world.

Lyra is celebrated amongst her people and paired with the Commander's son, but she's afraid to tell him that's not what she wants. Over the story, Lyra grows and find the courage to do what's not only right for others but for herself as well. Of course her heart tells her that she's falling for Asteran. He's noble and brave, but he's suffered a great loss. His sorrow made my chest tighten. Lyra and Asteran are accompanied by a wonderful cast of characters. Leo is fascinating and entertaining, and I was already a fan of Nova from the second book in the series.

This book should be on everyone's must read list! I can't wait to see what Aubrie Dionne comes up with next.
