|Earth is being plundered by the Bululg. The aliens are stealing the females to sell at an auction. Maddie and Grace are still on Earth, running a farm, charming bees, and avoiding the Bululg. Yet a girl only a mile away is kidnapped by the aliens. The women need to do something to protect themselves, but what?|
Grace is shocked and horrified to see a large hornet at her beehives. Things happen so quickly, she is abducted and Maddie is shot. Now onboard a small ship with the 2 hornets flying away from Earth. What were they going to do with her? Eat her? Troz has been kind to her, Peski has tolerated her at best. The attraction between Troz and Grace grows, even when their ship goes down.
Troz is on a mission to find his swarm. He lands on Earth. It’s where he meets Grace and realizes that she is his. MINE! The female drone aboard – Peski – reminds him that Grace is an annoyance, no distraction! Troz doesn’t care what Peski says, Grace is his. Only he doesn’t understand how he knows that she is his. Peski keeps reminding him that his objective is to find The Swarm. When he needs to find a replacement ship since his is ruined, he has to rely on Peski and Grace to help him out. His kind is NOT welcomed anywhere.
When Troz finds his Swarm, things changed. Grace is shuttled off the planet. She is no longer needed or wanted. Or is she? What about Troz? Or Peski? And the Queen!?
This was a quick read because I was so engaged in it. I was curious about Troz. He’s the first alien insect/human hybrid I’ve read about. The writing keeps you involved in the story and it’s fast-paced, so you never know what’s going to happen next. The characters are relatable and well-written, even Peski. Her name fits perfectly!
