After thwarting a deadly coup and saving the alliance between their worlds, Cara and Aelyx have finally earned a break. Their tiny island colony is everything they dreamed it would be―days spent gathering shells on the beach and nights in each other's arms. But the vacation is short-lived. The treaty between Earth and L'eihr has awakened an ancient force that threatens to destroy them all. The Aribol, mysterious guardians charged with maintaining interstellar peace, deem the alliance a threat to the galaxy. They order a separation of the races, decreeing humans and L'eihrs must return to their own planets within the month or face extinction. In fact, they already have agents in place on Earth, ready to begin. With the clock ticking, Aelyx and Cara assemble a team of colonists and race back to Earth, where they unite with old friends to solve the mystery of who the Aribol are, what they want, and the real reason the alliance has provoked them. As tensions build to a full-scale war, Aelyx and Cara must fight harder than ever―not just for their future, but for the survival of both their worlds.… (mais)

This one was either flat out terrible or I was high when I read and reviewed the only other book I read from this series. There was nothing that I liked about this book. Cara was glaringly dumb and really annoying with all the choices she was selfishly making. Aelyx was a doormat. Trey was the gross older brother stereotype that shocked me how Aelyx’s sister could possibly like him. I can’t even remember her name anymore, that’s how relevant her storyline was.

Everything happened so fast that I felt no satisfaction when I finally reached the ending. ( )

United is the final book of the Alienated series by Melissa Landers. As a whole, the series has been fun, even though the love story is a bit nauseatingly adorable at times. It's the world building that really makes the series worth reading. As you might remember from Alienated and Invaded, there is much more at stake than simply whether or not the two main characters or their civilizations can get along.

In United, the series continues to explore the concept of two planets getting along and what happens when such a new alliance is threatened. I think my favorite thing about it is the introduction of a non-humanoid species. So many stories, both in books and television, use either humanoid or insect-like ones and I found it interesting to find something fairly distant here. That said it's also interesting to have a book where not all of the plans go as planned. In fact, none go as planned, which is probably more kin to real life anyway.

Beginning with Alienated, I appreciate the way Cara wasn't meant to take over anything. She had ambitions and interest in what was going on, which kickstarted her involvement, but she was a kid and treated as one until her actions proved her able to do and be more. Her level of involvement in decision making by this book just made sense because of events from others but I appreciated the way she still messed up and had compassion at the wrong times and didn't always know the best way to handle people who were trying to get what they wanted out of her. The growth arc of both her and Aelyx is fun to watch and makes sense for their age group. While wise in what they were experienced in, they didn't have the breadth of experience that their mentors had and I appreciated the involvement of mentors and parents throughout the series and particularly here. I loved her parents from the first book. They were adorable.

My only problem with the series is the love stories. None are so much problematic as they are too simple and unrealistic. Perhaps idealistic is the better work. They seem to have met the loves of their lives incredibly early. Then again, it is a YA romance and where would we be with that kind of hope? Not that this sort of thing doesn't happen but I don't believe it does with the prevalence there appears in this series.

As a book on its own, I found it fun with nauseating love scenes. The puzzle that is the plot was entertaining as were the characters. They're a little one-sided in that same way as most of our favorite movie superheroes, which I don't find to be a bad thing when I'm in the mood for it. Some days I want something deep and dark and thought provoking and some days I'd rather read a light YA Sci-fi/romance. The whole series is actually really great for a brain break and just what I needed. As the culmination to this particular series, it is everything I wanted it to be. The resolution for every character is about what I wanted and in a way that isn't too far fetched or cheesy. A few things were uncharacteristic favors, but that can be true to life as well when you catch someone at the right time too. ( )
