Crash Landing: Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series Ep. 1
by Ginger Gelsheimer/Christina Keats
Note: I am reviewing my own Kindle copy that I bought.
Summary: A young half alien man crashes a space ship in a small town in the 19th century. Found by a judge’s family, Aurelius is hidden away and protected. No one expects him and the judge’s daughter to fall in love.
Positive: The concept is spot on. The characters are well fleshed out. The editing is good. Overall readability is good. Despite the issues below, I can tell that this prequel is leading to something that could be greater.
Negative: I did not feel that Aurelius crashed in the late 19th century. The mannerisms, beliefs, and actions of the Proctor family did not match the time period. Too open minded, too forward thinking and trusting (especially for a small town judge!) Unfortunately, for all that the characters were well fleshed out, I was quickly annoyed at the insta-love and immature behavior of the daughter Emily.
Rating: 4.0 stars of 5
