Release Week Blast + Giveaway: Invaded (Alienated #2) by Melissa Landers

Yay! I'm so happy and excited to get to help Melissa Landers spread the word about awesome release week launch party for INVADED!  Oh, and you should totally make sure you enter the giveaway, because you do not want to miss out on this one if you love swoon-worthy, cute, and adorable alien/human romances!

Like, I even with this series, because it's so darn adorable and lots of fun to read, plus it's bright and all kinds of imaginative. I absolutely fell IN LOVE with the Alienated (check out my review for it on Goodreads), the first book in this series, and I recently read the little novella Until Midnight and got sucked back into that world. So naturally, I'm all grabby-hands flailing all over the freakin' place, itching to get my hands on a copy of Invaded now. 

And it's like BOOM! She's freaking amazing enough to share an awesome little note with you guys! Check it out! 
Hey, fiction lovers. I’m Melissa Landers, author of the Alienated series (YA sci-fi from Disney-Hyperion), and today I’m bouncing with excitement because THE SEQUEL IS FINALLY HERE!

It’s been a year since we left Aelyx and Cara onboard the intergalactic transport, and INVADED begins with an emotional goodbye as they part ways—Aelyx returning to Earth to salvage the alliance, and Cara continuing to L’eihr to serve out her part of the student exchange. While they’re apart, our star-crossed lovers will face assassination attempts, betrayal, crippling self-doubt, and a sadistic alien Phys Ed class. (Because there’s no escaping PE, even in another galaxy.) When Aelyx and Cara finally reunite…well, let’s just say it’s combustive. ;-)
What do reviewers think? I’m glad you asked!

“Readers will love the seamless blend of suspense, humor, and romance set against an interstellar landscape. Dual narratives and a tightly plotted mystery keep the suspense running high, and the chemistry between Aelyx and Cara smolders.” –Booklist

“Excellent character development and integration between modern reality and science fiction. Teens will be rooting for the galactic couple while enjoying the action and suspense that runs through the two volumes.” –School Library Journal

“The protagonists' forced separation gives greater depth to their romance. Each learns to turn a critical eye upon the flaws of their native societies while confronting genuine obstacles to a future together. These complications only underscore the growing sense of menace that propels the narrative to an action-packed climax.” –Kirkus

I hope you’ll make tracks to the nearest bookstore and pick up a copy of INVADED

If you’re snowed in, here are some easy links to bring the sequel right to you!
To celebrate my book birthday, I’m offering one lucky winner a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble and an autographed swag pack, complete with mini posters of BOTH books! This giveaway is open internationally, and due to sweepstakes laws, entrants must be 18 years or older to participate.
Best of luck, and happy reading!
