He came to destroy. Then he met her.
In the chaos of an alien invasion, Penelope Simmons wants one thing: to get to her mom before the world ends.
But after stumbling upon an unearthly chemical weapon, and being hunted down by a tenacious and surprisingly human-looking Volkranian, Pen becomes entangled in an uprising of intergalactic proportions.
To stay alive, Pen and her alien captor will have to trust each other. To save the world, they’ll have to decide
which species—human or Volkranian—is worth dying for.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book. I’d read the description, but still didn’t know exactly what to expect.
Violet City is an alien invasion story and a romance all in one. You’d think the combination wouldn’t work, but it does, it really does.
I loved the characters – well, the ones you’re supposed to anyway. Penelope is sarcastic and I love it. She has such an attitude even though she’s scared to death.
Rowan is also quite funny. His manner of speech is hilarious to see, especially when he says certain things. He’s also not quite as keen on what’s happening as one might think.
The book is a quick read and keeps you interested and entertained the entire time. If you like alien invasion stories or quirky romances, this is the book for you.
