BOOK REVIEW- BENZEN
After escaping their home, six aliens, including Benzen, hope to find freedom on a different planet. They end up crashing onto a strange planet, a strange culture, and even stranger inhabitants.
They expected to learn some new things. However, one didn't expect to find love.
The Orba warriors are on the run from their people, now that their once peace-loving planet has been taken over by a hostile dictator, Palzu. They find out that they ended up on Earth and meet a young woman named Allison who takes them under her wing.
When Palzu's soldiers come after them, the group splits up and Benzen stays behind to protect Allison. But then he starts to develop feelings for her. What will happen when he's forced to show her what he truly is? Will she accept him or fear him? And will they be able to escape Palzu's forces? LINK 2 STARS
The plot idea was a pretty good one and it could have been so much more. But it wasn't. It didn't really draw me in all that much. Maybe its because although I get the idea of these aliens crash landed on earth, you expect them to have a learning curve. But I guess I don't like my alien stories to be quite this clueless. There were even times that Allison.the human in the story, seemed like a little kid. Although, she didn't seem that way when the sex scenes came up, which of course there were a few.
There was a small spark when Allison and Benzen get captured by the evil aliens. Allison had a pretty creative idea to help save them.. Alas, for me it wasn't enough to save this story.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it. But I was disappointed, so I had to give it 2 Stars on Amazon.
By the way, I don't think the eBook cover picture, matches very well with the description inside the book of Benzen. At least that is my impression.
