In Repossession, Rachael Wade takes her reader on a journey to a hopeless earth, invaded by aliens and governed by violence and fear. Skylla wakes in chains, having been captured following her parent's murder, by 'the Invaders' . After her very human (and very sexy) prison guard saves her from being raped, both their lives are in danger and they are forced to run. Rachael Wade does not downgrade the difficulties of Jet and Skylar's journey. In order to safely arrive in San Francisco they are forced to trade more than food or jewellery and their mantra becomes 'keep your finger on the trigger'. When Jet and Skylla meet Kale I had no idea about the huge part he would play, although I am glad Rachael Wade avoids a love triangle scenario. Any relief from the heavy science-fiction storyline is provided by the child-like bickering between Jet and Kale and the ardent sex-scenes! The world which Rachael Wade creates is a complex one and though I correctly predicted Skylla's part in it all, there were times when I had to stop and build a mental storyboard. Repossession ends as it began, with death, betrayal and uncertainty. The remaining two books in the trilogy are already on my wish list! I received this as a complimentary review copy, but my opinion has not been influenced in any way.

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.

Now this is a unique scifi/dystopian novel.  The book starts right after the invasion of the town of Morton, where our heroine Skylla lives with her parents, and the action starts up very quickly after that.  We are introduced to the Invaders and the author describes them so well I could envision them quickly and smell their stench in my imagination.  The invaders reminded me a bit of Skitters from the TNT show Falling Skies.  Sky is saved by what she thought was a traitor, but is just really a guy who wants nothing more than to get to the camps and save his sister. As the story goes on, with the action at a constant, a romance is bound by the unknowing if they will be alive not just the next day, but the next moment.  This is where I felt the author strayed a bit and added some graphic sex scenes that just didn't need to be there.  I'm not saying to take the sex out of the picture, but innuendos would have served just as well and made the novel acceptable for a wider age range.   I have to say, with the Seven Shepherds, which reminded me of the Sleepers in the rebooted version of Battlestar Galactica, I wasn't surprised by who was the Seventh.  I actually had a feeling it was going that way for the majority of the story.  I knew something was up and when the info on the shepherds was first talked about, I quickly put it together. Jett, love that guy.  He's not only a hottie in looks and emotions, he's quite frank and upfront.  He will let you know how it is and where to put it if you don't like it.  Very protective of Sky from the beginning, I was entranced with him from the beginning.  By the end, I wanted to scream for him. Kale...I really can't go too much in to him without giving away a lot.  Let's just say, he's a spineless jerk.  A wolf in a sheep's clothing. The ending really took my breath away.  It was so not what I was expecting and most authors would not have gone there.  Part of me is dumbstruck while another part of me knows what a good move this was for the storyline and I give kuddos to the author. I recommend this to anyone who wants a different take on aliens, invasions and sleeper agents.  The book also dives into a different history of our Earth, the Big Bang Theory totally nose dives along with many other theories.  I look forward to reading the next two books in this trilogy and can't wait to see where the author takes us with them.
