May 31, Breann rated it really liked it Shelves: Prince Gar was kind of throwing a fit about all his royal duties and decided to go out for an unauthorized joyride. So, inevitably, when he crashed on Aklesh nobody knew where he pwttit.
What Aklesh does have is telepathic abilities that they use with family members and when marrying. When Kai and his fellow tribe members found this crashed, unconscious alien on their planet he joins minds with Prince Gar was kind of throwing a fit about all his royal duties and decided to go out for an unauthorized joyride. When Kai and his fellow tribe members found this crashed, unconscious alien on their planet he joins minds with him and wills Gar to survive.
But now, Gar and Kai have an unbreakable bond on a planet that Gar detests. This story mostly focused on Gar and the growth in his character as he learned jariux values in the Aklesh culture and became closer to the people. Poor Kai, being mentally joined he could hear every word. He was so patient and understanding with Gar. Eventually their enemy status turned to friendship and they were able to use their bond in a positive way.
There was some romance towards the end and off-page sex. Even without the explicit scenes it was still very sweet and sexy. And when it did it was gooooooood. What I loved was the vivid descriptions of the planet and its people.
The people are blue and live in trees. What else am I supposed to picture?
Aklesh by Samuel Jarius Pettit
But, nonetheless, the setting was described beautifully and I could clearly picture everything. There were a couple things that irked me. There were some important events surrounding that but then it was just dropped and never brought up again. I kept waiting for some big ending to come about, but There were also some pretty big grammatical errors that would throw me off for a second. I really liked it.
But there was a samkel of wonderful world-building and characters that I fell in love with. View all 10 comments. Apr 03, Bookwatcher rated it it was amazing Shelves: Did you ever woke up in the middle of the night, completely awake I did, it was 2am, and I knew I couldn’t go back to sleep.
Awake and trying to decide what to do I remember I had this book to read. It was too good to put down! The plot During a outburst or rage, and in childish behave, the crown Prince Gar run from everything. Taking a starship he do what he Did you ever woke up in the middle of the night, completely awake Taking a starship he do what he always do, fly around, anywhere What he couldn’t imagine how much his live would change, and maybe also the fate of the universe.
Aliens, in a alien world, with alien animals and alien customs. That’s all what Gar will find when his startship crash in a “forgotten” ajlesh of the galaxy. He will be forced to be with a strange akleeh, with the Aklesh people.
Saved by Kai’thal, a apprentice healer, Gar as the narrator will let you see it I WAS there too, in that strange world. It’s romance, not sex as in a erotic book. D I can’t ruin your fun!
The prince must learn a lot, and maybe the most important lesson is a very simple one: It’s perfect, and that why I gave 5 stars? It wasn’t perfect if I talk about editing some minor problems, like punctuations and I think it wasn’t perfect in how the plot was developed. Maybe there is a project for a sequel, and that can explain why so much was “wasted” in the court, because I can’t explain some fact told, that don’t happen view spoiler [like Gar’s live being in danger?
There will be an attempt to kill him? Or, why his sister and the doctor encounter is so important to be told? When I read I always try to see all possibilities, of all scenes, and when some don’t “end” don’t have a explanation of why it was there It bothers me. So, in my modest opinion it’s a 5 stars book because it was perfect, addicting, and I couldn’t put it down before the last page. I rarely do it, but I must say some words about the book cover. That’s how they look like.
When I got it I bought the kindle file with this cover: Sorry, it really don’t show me anything from the story.
Who are those two? The dark hair is Gar, ok, and the other one? He is a slut, being in love with someone from Aklesh and having a human somewhere as a lover? D The second human on the book cover is.

THAT’S a great cover D I like the alien on the right. D Weird of not, it’s what Kai is View all jaeius comments. Mar 14, Meghan rated it it was amazing Pettiy Recommended yrs old and up. This was a straight-forward great sci fi story about a prince who crash-lands on a remote planet and is rescued by a younger native man. There’s a little bit of romance at the end, but only an allusion to sex. Otherwise, I’d say it’s for reader 13 years old and up. A lot of it is about the struggle with having to adapt to a different culture, living without technology, and learning to share thoughts and emotions with someone else, literally.
A few small editoria Recommended yrs old and up. A few small editorial slips, but otherwise, very nicely written. I’m really looking forward to the sequel! View all 4 comments.

jarisu May 24, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: There were some minor editing issues that threw me out from time-to-time. The book is told in third-person, but the focus would aklesu between the characters. Sometimes the shifts happened mid-paragraph and I would have to go back and re-read a section to figure out what was going on. I did enjoy seeing the development of the characters. Gar is the main focus, and seeing his attitude change from spoiled prin 3.
Gar jariks the main focus, and seeing his attitude change from spoiled prince to member of the society. The story is focused on the characters discovering who they are and who they want to be. There is a bit of a romance, but it felt sudden when it actually came up. There really needed to be more world building for Orestus Gar’s world. There were some scenes based there and it is described once, but I could never get a real feel for how it was set-up or what the social dynamics were.
