From USA Today Bestselling Author Aileen Erin

Maite Martinez has always yearned for more than waitressing in a greasy diner on the polluted ruins of planet Earth. Hiding her special abilities is a full-time job on its own, even with the government distracted by the mysterious alien race – the Aunare.

When a SpaceTech officer gets handsy with her, she reacts without thinking. Breaking his nose might not have been her smartest move. Now she’s faced with a choice: serious jail time working in a chain gang on a volcano planet or join the corporate army to fight against the impending war with the Aunare. It’s really no choice at all.

As with everything in her life, Maite quickly realizes that the war with the Aurnare isn’t what it seems. And Lorne, the Aunare prince, keeps popping up everywhere she goes. Being seen with him could get her in even deeper trouble with her commanders, but he’s the first person who sees through the wall she’s built around herself and she can’t bring herself to send him away.

When the situation between SpaceTech and the Aunare escalates, Maite has a way to end the war before it even begins. There’s only one question: Can she stop the total annihilation of humanity without getting herself killed in the process?

My Review:

Maité Martinez is half human and half Aunare. One night she is working when one of the customers decides he wants a piece of her and starts to feel her up. She reacts before she thinks and the next thing she knows she is has been arrested and sentenced and on her way to a volcanic planet where she will spend her prison sentence.

Maité has spent her entire life trying to hide who and what she is. If the truth about who she is gets out then it could be very dangerous for her and even mean her life.

Maité’s job assignment on this volcanic planet is very dangerous and is normally done by robots but someone wants to punish her badly and may even want her dead. But luckily she has a lot of people who care about her and has her back and will do whatever it takes to keep her alive.

War is on the horizon between SpaceTech and the Aunare. Maité must find a way to stop the war before it begins if she doesn’t it could be the death of everyone in the universe. Can she stop the war before it too late?

Off Planet is a great introduction into the world of the Aunare Chronicles. The world building for Off Planet is amazingly out of this world. The characters are all so lovable who care more for others than they do their own self. Characters that will put their own lives in danger to save the ones they care about. Off Planet is a great new start to whole new series one in which I am looking forward to. I can’t wait to see what Maité, Declan, Roan, Lorne, Ahiga, Tyler and Audrey have in store for us in the next book Off Balance.

I highly recommend Off Planet to all fans of science fiction or space opera.
