Release Week Blitz: Invaded by Melissa Landers

I am so thrilled to help Melissa Landers with her release week launch party for INVADED! See

a note from Melissa below and make sure to enter the giveaway!

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


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
