REVIEW, BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Repossession by Rachael Wade

Book & Author details:

Repossession by Rachael Wade 
(The Keepers Trilogy, #1)
Publication date: June 27th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Science Fiction

Synopsis:

Skylla only knows that she has been kidnapped and held prisoner by the foreign invaders and their human allies. And that the world is ending. Or so the humans think. The invaders have made it clear that their arrival is one of hostile intent, and as their takeover spreads, so does the panic across the globe. No one knows how to defeat them, or if it’s even sane to try.

Jet, Skylla’s human captor, is up for the challenge, though. A traitor in Skylla’s eyes, he is working with them. But Jet has his own agenda; one that doesn’t include babysitting Skylla or helping the enemies. And as the human race struggles to keep the invaders from achieving their goal, Jet and Skylla’s paths collide to reveal the truth behind Skylla’s abduction.

The invaders are headed for the water. Jet is headed for the water. But that’s the last place Skylla wants to be. That’s where the future of humanity lies, and where the bridge to their yesterdays was burned. On a mission to take back what is rightfully theirs, Earth’s population is determined to make sure this isn’t the end. But some endings were never theirs to begin with.

4 out of 5 (really liked it)

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

There are parts of this story that I absolutely love and other parts that had me shaking my head in sorrow. It starts out strong with the invaders... erm... invading and Skylla distraught at her parents' deaths. Then it skips forward and I wasn't too sure just where we'd gone but I carried on reading and enjoyed the first meeting with Sky and Jet.

This book doesn't pull any punches in certain areas and things happen in this story that I haven't read before (Sky on the train). I won't say anymore as I don't want to spoil it but I was surprised but pleased to read this part. I know pleased will sound wrong for those who have already read it and know what I'm talking about but seriously, put yourself in the same situation. What would you do to save someone's life?

I love how the relationship between Sky and Jet progresses and grows. There is no insta-love in this book which is  a BIG plus from me. However, it does have a love triangle which is where it loses points. I just can't be doing with them or with females that can't make up their minds - alien intervention or not!

This is an action packed book and you are never sure which character you can trust. The story flows well but does get a big 'bogged down' with details towards the end. The ending itself came as a bit of a surprise.

On the whole, I really enjoyed this story. Recommended for fans of Dystopian/Science Fiction with a jot of romance thrown in.
