Book Review: Unearthed by C.J. Barry

Life on Earth was just getting interesting for Tess MacKenzie. She’d postponed her singing career to support the family business and after eight long years, she finally earned her chance to shine. Her band was hot, her songs were rocking and Tess was on her way to becoming a star. Things were definitely looking up.
That is until Cohl Travers, alien extraordinaire, swoops out of the night sky and snatches her off her planet. When he says he desperately needs her voice for a dangerous cosmic mission and the fate of two planets hangs on her song, she figures one of them is in for some serious therapy. Tess soon finds herself up to her neck in smelly bad guys, a robot with a superiority complex, an ancient Amulet that could end her singing career permanently, and a man who can burn her from the inside out.
Cohl Travers thought he was free and clear of his destiny to become the next ruler of his planet. But when the warring Trakas abduct his father and hold him hostage for the Amulet, Cohl is dragged back to a fate he does not want with a woman he cannot ignore.

Unearthed is a fast, fun, romping space adventure.  It's space opera in a good way.  Tess is the fiery-haired heroine who is abducted by the devastatingly handsome alien Cohl.  Only Tess can save Cohl's father and his planet. 

The story is written with an upbeat pace that kept my attention.  The characters are engaging and quick-witted.  I loved Cohl's robot bodyguard!  Wish I had one of my own!

This is not a high brow science fiction novel.  Don't look for minute details on quantum space theory or black holes.  This is a feel good space adventure romance that doesn't take itself too seriously.  Grab a copy and enjoy the ride.

Thank you Carina Press and Netgalley for allowing me to review Unearthed.
