Repossession (Keepers Trilogy #1) by Rachael Wade

*Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations, language, and mature subject matter*

Skylla only knows that she has been kidnapped and held prisoner by the foreign invaders and their human allies. And that the world is ending. Or so the humans think. The invaders have made it clear that their arrival is one of hostile intent, and as their takeover spreads, so does the panic across the globe. No one knows how to defeat them, or if it’s even sane to try.

Jet, Skylla’s human captor, is up for the challenge, though. A traitor in Skylla’s eyes, he is working with them. But Jet has his own agenda; one that doesn’t include babysitting Skylla or helping the enemies. And as the human race struggles to keep the invaders from achieving their goal, Jet and Skylla’s paths collide to reveal the truth behind Skylla’s abduction.

The invaders are headed for the water. Jet is headed for the water. But that’s the last place Skylla wants to be. That’s where the future of humanity lies, and where the bridge to their yesterdays was burned. On a mission to take back what is rightfully theirs, Earth’s population is determined to make sure this isn’t the end. But some endings were never theirs to begin with.

When it was just you and your fight to live, the only thing that mattered was time. 

Aside from the Hunger Games Series, I haven’t read very many dystopian novels. However, I couldn't resist this one, especially when it's written by this talented author. I was truly honored to beta read this. Please let me tell you right now, it freaking rocked. 

Both the Hero and heroine are strong, badass characters, determined to survive. They both have with undeniable chemistry, and yes, there is romance, but it’s not the focus of the story, so understand that before going into the story. 

“Finger on the trigger.” 

Earth will never be the same. The alien invaders are here. Each human being is trying to survive and each have a role to play in this new world. Some were born to serve the invaders, while some are rebelling against the takeover. 

When we first meet Skylla, her abductor, Jet, holds her captive. The next thing we know, both escape and are on a cross-country mission to San Francisco to rescue Jet’s sister who is at one of the invader’s many training camps. 

“Everything about you fucks with my head, Skylla. From the moment I laid eyes on you, I’m distracted and I don’t like it For a minute, I thought it was better if I was as far away from you as possible. I tried…I tried leaving you, just walking away. But I couldn’t because my need to be near you, to protect you is so fucking strong, it knocks the wind out of me. It’s physically impossible for me to walk away from wherever you are. No woman has ever done that to me. It makes me crazy mad, okay?” 

Sky doesn’t know why she feels compelled to help Jet, her kidnapper, but he did help her escape. Weird scenario, I know, but Jet and Sky aren’t predictable in any way. Their journey isn’t pretty, especially when there are so many societal changes, along with being chased by the invaders. Along the way, they form a bond. However, Sky’s role in this invasion is more than what she, or anyone else, is to be believed. 

I did not have all the answers. I did not know what awaited us on Foundation Zero, or if our race would ever recover from all that we had lost. 
But I did know how to shoot a gun. 

The whole time I was reading this, I was in awe of what was going on in my head. The imagination and the creativity to create such a world is truly astounding. I can so picture this as a movie; it was non-stop action. Just when you start to form theories and form your own alliances with these characters, the story takes a complete left turn and you’re left in total shock. This is NOT predictable in anyway and it does end in one hell of a cliffhanger (sorry, I had to warn you). If you are a fan of dystopian stories, I suggest you to give this series a try. Looking forward to book two :)
