REVIEW: Once again Evangeline Anderson proves to be on top of her game, Descended is book #2 in The Alien Mate Index series and a fantastic addition. So far The Alien Mate Index has proven to have everything I enjoy reading about Paranormal/Fantasy/Alien series. It has all the ingredients necessary to make it is TOP pick.
Charlotte is the last of the friends that is still on earth, after her 2 best friends disappeared under weird circumstances Charlotte has found herself changing a lot of things about her life, starting with her job. As a doctor Charlotte cares for her patients, she is deeply interested in making sure her patients get the best of care even if in the meantime Charlotte forgets a bit of herself. Then everything starts to change. As with previous characters, Charlotte is experiencing weird situations that makes her question her own sanity. She blames it on the lack of sleep after hours and hours of being on the ER, but while she tries her best to ignore the weird episodes they keep happening making it difficult for her to ignore them.
As Charlotte meets her new protector Kristoff Verrai she can’t deny the way in which she feels, as he explains who he is and the reason for him to being on earth. Charlotte can’t seem to come to terms with all the information he has given her. I really enjoyed this story, not just the way in which it evolves but also the way in which the relationship starts. I enjoyed the humor, the passion, the loyalty and the sexy fun between these two characters. While the author creates an expected and even predictable atmosphere & situations for these characters, the outcome is far from predictable.
One of the best things about Evangeline’s writing is how she manages to bring all sort of emotions to the table. Her characters are funny, witty and all around natural & interesting. Her stories though usually out of this world bring a lot of fun and a very interesting setting, with unexpected twists and turns that makes the story a page turner.As the story continues, we are presented with a plot that keeps getting more interesting.
Descended brings more than passion, new found love and loyalty to the table, it brings emotions that are a staple in Anderson’s writing. This interplanetary exchange of characters & costumes brings a lot of humor without taking away the seriousness of these characters stories.
