“Mari wakes naked, on the cold metal floor of a cargo cage. She has been captured by an alien trapper, Ekkatt, a man of Attun-Ra. Her destination is the meat market. Her only hope of survival is to connect with Ekkatt. She never expects to fall in love with him.”

This book was quite a surprise for me. I have not delved into science fiction much, to be quite honest I have only read Ann Aguirre’s Jax series so far. I never thought that it would be a genre I would enjoy much and Captured proved me wrong.
It’s a strong story with a lot of world building and very easy to get lost into. Mari has been taken from her home on Earth and awakens in a spaceship where she is a prisoner. She meets Ekkatt, a humanoid alien that works for an organization in his planet that takes human women and sells them in the meat-market.
Yep, you read that right. I do not even mean they became sexual slaves, which would have been horrible enough. Apparently human meat is a delicacy to a lot of interplanetary species and what is worse, they don’t even acknowledge that humans are sentient creatures and regard us all as unthinking animals.
Mari waking up during that trip changes everything. No prisoner has ever woken up before and by being rational and opinionated she shows Ekkatt that things are not what he has been led to believe.
I loved the growth both characters go through and how much they teach each other and come to rely in one another. It’s a beautiful love story and both Ekkatt and Mari are great leading characters and sooooo hot together hehe.
Their journey for survival and right to exist and just be together is great to follow and the only fault I have found in this book was that it was too short. I wanted more and more and Julia had a such a rich world and story that there is much more to be told in that world.
If you are up to an awesome sci-fi romance, this is the book for you!
