 The Samsara Chronicles - Book 2

Dylan, Aislinn and the chosen humans arrive on Nirvana but now the pair faces another alien threat, this time to their homeworld.

Aislinn and Dylan’s joyous homecoming to Nirvana is tempered by yet another crisis. Aliens, assisted by a traitorous member of Nirvanan security and a threat to the royal bloodline, have kidnapped Aislinn’s parents and hold them hostage on the dying world of Klatria. Aislinn and Dylan now face the task of rescuing them before they are killed.

Just as in Book 1, The Samsara Chronicles Book 2 paints a picture in words. Aislynn and Dylan have arrived back home to Nirvana. The sweeping vistas are described in enough detail to make the alien world feel more like home. Nirvana welcomes its returning Princess, her consort, and the Earthlings worthy of rescue with open arms.
This ideally beautiful haven isn’t as carefree as it would seem on the surface. In her absence, Aislynn’s parents, the King and Queen of Nirvana, have been captured by the Klatrians, with the help of an insider. It is now up to Aislynn to reconcile the ancient past with the present in hopes of preserving the future of both Nirvana and Earth. In fighting to save her parents and their home world, she finds faith, hope, and love are conquering forces when combined with courage and grit.
Here, again, is a sensual mainstream romance blending science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal. A good balance had been struck between plot and romance.  There are a number of twists and turns to keep the story moving right along. Just when you think something is wrapping up a little soon, something new comes to light. The ending sets up yet another adventure for Aislynn and Dylan. Next stop, Earth!  As with Book 1, the relationship with our hero and heroine is sensual but still good for a variety of audience members. There are no worries if the kids look over your shoulder or snoop through your e-reader. Whether you are looking for a romance, a piece of science fiction, or both, this book will satisfy. I look forward to the third installment.
