Synopsis: Sally Webber’s dream is coming true: Zander is back and taking her out for a night on the town–on a planet hundreds of light years away from Earth. 

But when an accident separates her from her alien tour guide, she’s thrown into the seedy underbelly of an insane city where nothing is as it seems. Suddenly lost and desperate to get back home, Sally is willing to do anything to get out, even if it means accepting spontaneous marriage proposals, crashing some fancy parties, or joining what appears to be the space mob. 

All she wanted was some decent interstellar pizza, but now it might be the end of the world as evil nanobots and an out of control AI try to take the universe by force, and the only one who can stop them is missing in action. Sally has no choice but to try to stop them herself–if she can stay alive that long.

The Review:

Alienation is a fabulous thrill ride! Full of excitement, emotion, and aliens, it will keep you entertained from page one to the end! If you love quirky and humorous, then you need to pick up the Starstruck series!

Oh man, this was exhilarating! It was hilarious, emotional, and brilliant! I have been dying waiting for Doctor Who to come back, and Alienation has satiated my hunger for the moment! It had everything I loved about one of my favorite shows, and had S.E. Anderson’s unique style and personality taking center stage!

This one was so much better than Starstruck, and I gave that one 5 stars already! Alienation saw the return of our favorite space traveling alien, but also turned the focus to the lovable, quirky Sally! I really learned a lot about Sally and how strong she is. She was so brave and yet, still had a vulnerable side that snuggled up next to her witty humor and sarcasm. She used her head and followed her heart, and kicked ass along the way.

I could not have predicted the wild turns this ride took, either! Man, it was good! The story paid homage to several popular fandoms, all while keeping its originality and whimsy. It was daring and fascinating, and still managed to bring to light important issues of equality, inclusion, and the importance of humanity and friendship. If you haven’t read Starstruck yet, I highly recommend buying all three books because the first two were so addictive that I am dying for the next!
