Species Traitor: The Complete Science Fiction Dystopian Box Set

(1 customer review)


My name is Ava Mendoza, and I am a species traitor.

They came hoping to find a new home after their own planet was destroyed, but Earth was dying, as well, and most humans saw their arrival as an invasion. Now, two decades later, the Veilorians have been banished to the District, a fenced-in area on the outskirts of the last known livable land on Earth. Most people do their best to pretend they don’t exist, but not everyone. There are humans, like my cousin, who see them for what they are. Despite the threat of disownment, she married a Veilorian, and now, she, too, lives in the District. 

Even before I met Finn, I was determined to stand up for what was right, but from the moment I laid eyes on him, we had a connection I’ve never experienced before. But with the election of a new and radical mayor on the horizon, tensions are high, and people are calling for change. They want to make my cousin’s marriage illegal and punish any human who goes into the District, but I refuse to back down from this fight. No matter the cost. 

“This was much more than a sci-fi-dystopian-romance for the reader. This tale played on every emotion you can think of. My mind was a whirlwind of emotional turmoil.” – Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★

“Utterly spellbinding.” –Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★

“This book captured my imagination with Kate’s creative storytelling and her ability to make you root for the characters.” –Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★

“Kate L. Mary never disappoints when it comes to her world building and character development!” –Amazon Review ★★★★★

“I remember Mary saying this story would be so much more than just a love story. And it was. It was beauty and raw emotions. It was heartbreaking to the point of tears. But Mary crafted a glorious bandaid in the form of words and amazing characters to mend my heart over and over again. I was absolutely addicted to this book; to Finn and Ava. And I was desperate for it when I wasn’t able to be in it.” –Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★

    Narrator does a great job!! She has a nice tone and good emotion to her voice. Recommend listening experience.

    Love that this boxset has both of the books in this duology! Both books were entertaining and I loved the premise! I would’ve liked more resolution for certain things after finishing the second book, but I still really enjoyed both books.

    Love Sci-Fi alien type of stories, so I loved that aspect of this story. Add in some romance and I’m there! I also enjoy dystopian type of stories; I do get annoyed at the despicable characters with their depraved minds, but I love to see the rational characters rise above! In this one, aliens come to Earth to find a new hope for life, but of course humans don’t take too kindly to Earth being invaded. Despite the aliens positive aspects, many humans have prejudice against the aliens; there’s some disheartening, sad things going on. Lots of problems arise between the species bringing out the bad sides of many. Ava finds herself knowing what the right thing to do is, but finding it difficult to actually go that direction. Along the way, she connects with alien Finn, but the road is definitely going to be a wild one for these two. Plus, there’s a bit of a love triangle going on. I liked Ava’s sass and strength to stand up for those that need it, but her common sense could use some work. I do really enjoy the connection between Finn and her; things start out rocky, but the chemistry is there.

    I don’t want to go too much into the second book; don’t want to give spoilers, but it continues right after the cliffhanger of book 1. For both books, we only get Ava’s POV. Things start similar to book 1, but then go in another dangerous direction. Book 2 is a little slow at times, but still an enjoyable, entertaining read. There’s an adventure through some desolate wastelands in search of hope!

    Overall, I really loved both books! Cool premise, interesting scenarios and action, and a super sweet touching romance!
