My name is Ava Mendoza, and I’m not a species traitor. I’m a species savior.
I never thought the Veilorians were the enemy, but I also never could have imagined I’d find myself in love with one. Meeting Finn changed my life, and I happily gave up everything not just for him, but for what I believed in as well.
But now the future is uncertain, and the stakes higher than ever. Veronica Waters is determined to make everyone in the District pay for our crimes against humans. To her we’re species traitors, but I don’t see it that way. I believe Veilorians were sent here to save us and I refuse to back down. No matter what.
I just hope I don’t lose everything in the process.

I loved this book, it kept me glued to it unable to stop, it was fast paced, action packed and an emotional rollercoaster that had me reaching for the tissues. The political corruption and manipulation kept the plot on a knife edge, and the determination of Ava and the Veilorians kept me hoping for their victory. This series has been fantastic, and left me wanting more, hoping for a follow up for the missing Veilorians, Heather’s narration was perfect, really giving the characters personality. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Species Savior (A Science Fiction Dystopian Novel (Species Traitor) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Heather Firth is an enjoyable listen and a good ending for the series. If you enjoyed the first book, give this one a listen. 4 stars for story, 5 for narration.

What’s it about? Ava and Finn are back and struggling with how to proceed with their future as it looks rather grim as tensions continue to climb between humans and Veilorians. It gets even worse when Ava is faced with betrayal, discovering she is pregnant, and Mayor Waters nefarious ways. I love the world connects to another world of Kate L. Mary’s. There are plenty twists and turns and new characters that keep it interesting. I wish there would have been a little more use of certain bad characters or learning about their histories in full detail and a tad less of repeat dialogue (ex. Veilorian facts). I’m not gonna lie, I would love one or two more books out of this series or a new series where they connect to the others in the world and team up to take the bad guys out.
The narrator, Heather Firth, once again does a beautiful job. Her character voices are perfect, great pace, and adds to the overall story.
