Review: Invaded

Title Invaded (Alienated #2)
By Melissa Landers
Genre YA Scifi Romance
Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Losing her heart to an Aelyx and choosing to go with him to his planet wasn't and easy choice but Cara did what she felt was right. But when Aelyx has to go back to earth and Cara is left of L'eihr things are going to be even harder. Especially when Cara starts sniffing around and discovers a plot that could end both planets.

First Sentence
I'm dreaming of a beige Christmas.

As I mentioned in my review of the first book in this series, I decided to continue with it because it was available on audiobook and I was interested enough to see what happens I know, not a glowing review or reason to read a book but I'm kind of glad I continued. Sure, the romance is annoying but the plot in this one thickened nicely.

It seemed like once the author got the romance under way she no longer relied on it to carry the story. And the story is what kept me entertained. Learning about life on L'eihr was fun and watching Cara adapt to that life while learning some disturbing things about some certain members of the alien race intrigued me.

Sure, the story is your typical YA romance with a few convenient plot twists that are slightly unbelievable but I ended up giving this one three stars because the plot got going and tickled my fancy. What can I say? Sometimes it just works out that way.

Should you read it
I thought this one was better than the first so I'd say, yeah, give it a chance.


  1. I love when a sequel is better than the first. That doesn't happen very often.

    1. No it doesn't and if it does I'd imagine the first was so off putting that no one reads the second to find out.

  2. I'm glad you liked this one better than the first one. :) That's always a nice surprise.

  3. So glad the second one got better! Gives me hope. :)

    1. It did. It wasn't amazing or anything but the plot definitely took it up a notch.

  4. I buy a lot of audiobooks because listening to a book is often easier than trying to find the time to sit down and read, and I've probably read books that I might have given up on if not for audio. I'm glad that this series is working out, even if it's not a barn burner. ;)
