I am so thrilled to help Melissa Landers with her release week launch party for INVADED! See a note from Melissa below and make sure to enter the giveaway!
Hey, fiction lovers. Iâm Melissa Landers, author of the Alienated series (YA sci-fi from Disney-Hyperion), and today Iâm bouncing with excitement because THE SEQUEL IS FINALLY HERE!
Itâs been a year since we left Aelyx and Cara onboard the intergalactic transport, and INVADED begins with an emotional goodbye as they part waysâAelyx returning to Earth to salvage the alliance, and Cara continuing to Lâeihr to serve out her part of the student exchange. While theyâre apart, our star-crossed lovers will face assassination attempts, betrayal, crippling self-doubt, and a sadistic alien Phys Ed class. (Because thereâs no escaping PE, even in another galaxy.) When Aelyx and Cara finally reuniteâ¦well, letâs just say itâs combustive. ;-)
âReaders will love the seamless blend of suspense, humor, and romance set against an interstellar landscape. Dual narratives and a tightly plotted mystery keep the suspense running high, and the chemistry between Aelyx and Cara smolders.â âBooklist
âExcellent character development and integration between modern reality and science fiction. Teens will be rooting for the galactic couple while enjoying the action and suspense that runs through the two volumes.â âSchool Library Journal
âThe protagonists' forced separation gives greater depth to their romance. Each learns to turn a critical eye upon the flaws of their native societies while confronting genuine obstacles to a future together. These complications only underscore the growing sense of menace that propels the narrative to an action-packed climax.â âKirkus
I hope youâll make tracks to the nearest bookstore and pick up a copy of INVADED! If youâre snowed in, here are some easy links to bring the sequel right to you:
