The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.
Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.
Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.
Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.
The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?
I don't know if I would ever give up my life on Earth to go live on an alien planet. Cara, our heroine, does exactly that. Cara is the outsider on this planet and she doesn't even have her boyfriend, Aelyx, with her. She must learn quickly to fit in. I really liked learning more about L'eihr and the planet and people the author created. The reader will find him/herself understanding much more about what Aelyx was referring to in the first book when he spoke of his planet.
The plot increased in speed when the book took a twist and Cara helps in readying a human colony for L'eihr. I have always both wanted to read about plans for a colony on Mars in the paper (and feared hearing about it) so this was right up my interest alley. I thought the supporting characters did their jobs; they're not all likable, but they add another dimension to the novel. Overall, this book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
