  • I Love Aileen Erin

    Wow! I'm not much into sci-fi, but Aileen Erin proves me wrong every single time! This book is on fire! The world's building is so intriguingly beautiful and thrilling, the storyline drags you in from the very beginning. Weaving it's tale of infinite wonder and the characters are so exciting and so full of detail, I felt almost like I was living in the story, working with the characters. It's an beautifully written story and I look forward to reading the next book!!!!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fantastic sci-fi

    A fantastic start to a new sci-fi series with a spectacular heroine in Maité, a halfer that's been in hiding for most of her life and separated from her father who is a leader of the Aunare alien world. Maité and her human mother have been waiting to be rescued after the humans annihilated the Aunares on Earth after years of peaceful coexistence. She's everything you want in a heroine. Tough, smart, lethal when needed, and just a young woman with all the feelings that go with her situation. The combination of her human traits and alien abilities is terrific. She has a bunch of hunky heroes behind her from her human best friend, Roan, to the delectable double agent,Declan, and the alluring Aunare, Lorne. Boy, does he have an affect on Maité with only his voice. Also, the fierce ABQ crew trying to counter the dastardly SpaceTech's evil rule over the inhabitants of Earth. They all work together to get Maité off planet before she's discovered and executed. Her journey is rough, dangerous and often cringeworthy but she's strong and knows to hold on until the plan to get her to her father is successful. She is the key to preventing a war between the species and the doom of Earthers. An unfathomable task for a young halfer. I liked the writing even if at times it was a little wordy in places for me but I was so caught up in the superb storytelling that it was minor. The story moved at a good paced with lots of adventure, danger, suspense and intriguing characters. I can't wait for more of the mysterious Lorne and the hottie Declan and, of course, the truly wonderful Maité/Amihanna. More romance, please. On pins and needles for the next installment in this believable, out-of-this-world, sensational series. Just fabulous! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC. 4.5 stars

  • great first book

    Off Planet was one of my can't wait 2019 books. I had high expectations and hoped that I wouldn't be disappointed. And after reading the last chapter...I'm so happy. It was just what I thought it would be and I loved the story about Maité and the Aunare. It's really maddening that there always will be cruel people trying to make someone different suffer. I wanted to scream in frustration at Jason Murtagh and his cronies. They really got out of their way to make life a living hell for Maité and all the prisoners on Abbadon. It was good to see that there'll be goodhearted people willing to help and knowing when to shut up, like Roan and Declan. And then there was Lorne... Aunare crown prince with aqua blue eyes.... Hell, I wanted to marry him and I hope Maité (or now it's Amihanna) will in time find her way to his heart. Really great start to a ned series and I highly recommend this book to all sci-fi lovers.

  • Great read!

    Off Planet came as a total pleasant surprise. Sci-fi is usually totally hit-and-miss for me, and this one was definitely a hit. It was well-written, with strong characters, strong worldbuilding, and a breakneck plot that kept my eyes glued to the page and my brain still in the story even when I wasn't reading.  The book took a few chapters to really get going, but when it did I was so invested in Maité and her story. The plot doesn't stop, there are so many twists and turns, and every time you think that something can't get worse, what happens is even worse than you were imagining. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book because there's so much that happens. I thought this book was way longer than it actually was because it's so packed with action. Maité spends the whole book fighting against SpaceTech on the planet Abbadon, even though she's trapped on a hell planet where everyone wants to kill her.  I loved Maité. It's been a while since I've seen a character go through this much and fight every second to survive. I was not expecting how absolutely brutal some parts of Off Planet is. What Maité goes through in the book is horrifying--the planet she spends most of the book on is basically literally called Hell, and she's there because people want her to die in the cruelest and most painful way possible. I felt so much for her, because Erin's writing is so raw and real. All of Maité's pain and fear throughout the book is described in excruciating detail--and Erin didn't skimp on discussing the trauma it caused Maité, either.  The secondary characters were also all fairly fleshed-out. Maité is surrounded by so many sympathetic characters to make up for all the nasty ones in the book. I also liked the general lack of romance during Off Planet. There's hints at a romance with one of the Aunare, Lorne, and maybe a possible love triangle with a SpaceTech defector, Declan. But it definitely wasn't a focus--just offhand comments on how attractive these boys were, which, okay, but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment. This story is Maité's story, and about her survival, which was something I really liked.  The worldbuilding was strong, and there was a lot to figure out, but I didn't find myself particularly confused. There's SpaceTech, an evil interstellar corporation that basically has authoritarian control over their territory, and the Aunare, an alien race that was wiped off of Earth. I thought the Aunare were quite interesting, especially with their unique physiology and how they interact with humans, especially SpaceTech. I did have a lot of questions that I'd like to see answered in the next book, however. There's not a whole lot about the Aunare and its culture, because Maité is kept in the dark for most of the book.  Readers should be aware that there's a fairly graphic scene of sexual assault early on in the book, and Maité shows symptoms of PTSD.  Off Planet was such an engaging and engrossing read, and I honestly enjoyed every second of it, even if some pats had me gritting my teeth in sympathy. If you like sci-fi, you'll probably like this book, and even if you're not a sci-fi but you're a fan of amazing female characters who never stop fighting, you might like Off Planet.
