ARC Review: "Alienated" by Melissa Landers
Genre: Paranormal Romance YA
Format: ARC/ Kindle
Publication: February 4, 2014 by Disney Hyperion
Cover Rating: 5/5 Stars
From Goodreads: Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.
Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.
Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.
But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.
Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she's fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
My Thoughts: First of all, a HUGELY EPIC thank you to Netgalley and Disney Hyperion for providing me this ARC!
Alienated was so original! I loved it! I started this book late into the night and didn't put it down until I was turning the last page. I NEED the next book ASAP!
Cara, a human high school senior, is an awesome heroine, with plenty of spunk and wit. Aelyx is a quiet, bizarre alien exchange student sent to Earth to help form an alliance with the human race... an alliance in which both species could benefit from. The only problem? Not every human is over the moon about the L'eihrs, and Aelyx and his two friends don't feel much differently about them either. Until he meets Cara.
I absolutely loved the chemistry between these two characters. They complimented each other so well! Not to mention the plot was so absorbing! I just could not stop reading it. If you're a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series, then you will definitely want to check out Alienated!
This is definitely one series I will be keeping up with it! HIGHLY Recommend!
