Description

As a guardian for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen: women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he's encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra: his one true mate. For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he's behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other women. She's prepared to believe he's a ruthless killer, but when she presents herself as bait, she discovers that the truth is far more shocking. Taken to a strange, hazardous realm she never knew existed, Asia will face the ultimate choice-between abandoning the life she's always known and forsaking a passion as dangerous as it is powerful.

    This is the first novel in Jacquelyn Frank's Gatherer's series, and I enjoyed the unusual world that she created called "Beneath", an alternate dimension that runs parallel to Earth and populated with a majority of men after a devastating plague that decimated the female population.I couldn't help but wonder if Frank was inspired to write this from reading L. J. Smith's "The Forbidden Game" series. Both had main characters named Julian, both revolved around men stealing women to take back to their worlds below Earth, and they both had floating worlds with treacherous pathways connecting them. I don't know that she has read Smith's books, but it seemed more than coincidental.Frank has a knack for creating complex worlds and well-developed mythology and I liked this first entry in this new series.

    I read and listened to this book and it was enjoyable. I like going back and relistening or rereading certain books and this was one.

    Julian and Asia's story is one. She thought he was a serial killer. A different and unexpected take. Xe Sands does an excellent job narrating these books.
    This is the eighth book I've read or listen to and I intend on finishing this two book series. These two were so in Lo?ve !!!

    I picked this up on a whim out of my TBR pile. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't a sci-fi novel featuring aliens from a different plane of existence. Despite my lukewarm feelings about the premise in the beginning, I admit the story sucked me in the more I read. I enjoyed the world-building. Frank's description of Beneath and the creatures that inhabit it were well done. I also enjoyed Julian. Though it was hard to take his actions in the beginning, I think Frank did a fairly credible job of redeeming him.

    Asia was harder to take. Although I understood her actions in the beginning (if I'd been kidnapped I image I'd have tried to escape/flout authority, too) they became increasingly hard to excuse away as the novel progressed. Though even that isn't my main issue. My main issue was her insistence that she "wasn't made for forevers and happily ever afters". That's it. That was all the resistance between her and Julian. It wasn't the fact that she was from Earth and he wasn't, or that he brought her to his world without her permission, or that his people needed her to feed them energy, all of which I could have understood. Instead it was just "eh, I'm not a HEA type of girl".

    Beyond that, there were several holes in the plot. The idea that Julian and Asia had to have sex in order to feed his people energy was somewhat outlandish, but so was the rest of the plot, so I could set that aside. It was harder to set aside disbelief over other things, such as the way Julian and Asia constantly fought with each other which hampered the progress of the romance.

    Having said that, I'm willing to cut the novel a little slack because it's the first of a new series. I did enjoy the world enough that I plan to read the next entry, Stealing Kathryn.

    Couldn't Wait For It To Finally FinishThis author was on my "To Read" List, but I didn't know which titles I wanted when I was at the bookstore. I chose this one and "Stealing Kathryn". I was pretty disappointed after the first few chapters. The creation and concept of "Beneath", it's population and laws was just fine. Both the characters, Asia and Julian, just ended up annoying me greatly. I was totally frustrated with Asia's stubborn refusal to accept her new reality, and Julian's sensitivity annoyed me even more. The love-making seemed over the top and out of context in this novel (and I do like it steamy). I couldn't wait to finish reading it and put the book down. Now, I'm not sure I have the stamina to read the next title in the series, even after a break. Good plot, bad character development.
