Now there’s no need to read the Immortal Guardian books prior to starting this series, as it can stand on its own. However, I must warn you once you read this book you will be tempted to read the books from the Immortal Guardian series. The story introduces Taleon of Lasara who is preparing for a mission to earth to find is sister Amariska. In book one of the Immortal Guardian series the reader was introduced to Amariska and received her full story in the second book. Taleon upon reaching Earth was captured and subjected to a myriad of torturous experiments. Lisa, a graduate student seeking to earn additional funds to help make ends meet too part in several research studies. The latest one involved a study of psychic talents. During a round of testing Lisa was rendered unconscious, with her waking eight months later to find herself in a strange and precarious situation. The one thing giving her hope was her psychic link to the man being held prisoner in another section of the facility.
Wow! What a ride. The Lasaran took the reader on a journey filled with romance, intrigue and humour. Some events noted here coincided with incidents which occurred in the Immortal Guardian series. Majority of the story took place on earth with the reader being treated to suspenseful moments and unexpected twists.
I enjoyed getting to know Taleon and Lisa. Lisa turned out to resilient, smart and brave, the kind of heroine I enjoy reading about. I loved the chemistry between these two and their lively interactions. Their romance despite its complicated nature was sweet and downright adorable.
I chose to listen to the audio version which I have done for all the books I have read for Duvall. Kristen Potter is her narrator of choice, and I can see why. She breathes life into the story.
Overall, The Lasaran was a great start to the Aldebarian Alliance series. I recommend this to fans of Immortal Guardian series and lovers of sci-fi romance.
