Outside is dangerous.


Such is the warning Koral has heard for twelve years. Born a product of genetic manipulation, he knows little else of the world beyond the steel walls of his home.

When fate gives him the choice between certain death and the unknown, there's no question in what he must choose. But he's about to find out the sands he must brave are full of more than mere

This book started out really well, and I thought I was going to love it... But, no.
The major problem for me is that quite a few times the story skips several years, and that kinda makes it feel like this is a story the author didn't really want to write - or was told it was too long, so she cut huge chunks out.
I would have liked to have those "missing" years. The author is a good writer, so the extra wordage wouldn't have bothered me at all.
Really disappointing.

This got a bit confusing towards the end.... the dream was it what was happening in real life or just a dream, until the next one I shall wait and find out what happens next.

Koral runs away from his spaceship home and finds other members of his alien race. After a short time, he is given as tribute to the gods and becomes a rogue who is possessed by the spirit of a god.

This is a science fiction novel, but many aspects have more of a high fantasy feel about them. I felt it was an excellent blend of the two genres that fans of both will enjoy. Koral is a fascinating character, and we get to see several years of his life in this one novel.

At first, Koral came across as

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I wavered between a 3 and 4 star rating for this novel. Author Aldrea Alien has obvious skill as a story teller, and has built a unique world and alien creatures. The story concept is intriguing, I liked the idea of humans landing on an alien planet and using their superior technology and time travel skills as barter to create a unique breed on the world. The mix of species was also a major draw, so many differing races all living t

The Rogue King is an interesting book. One of the main reasons for this is there are very few humans in the story, with the majority of the characters being part of alien races. These include wolenas, katesses, and reptereons. The story itself takes place on a planet named Thardrandia. I think it is this aspect of The Rogue King, along with the world building which includes various deities and their machinations, which caught my attention and kept me reading all the way through. It's definitely ...more

From Iraida Torres
Very interesting. The book was sometimes difficult to follow due to all the various species. The book sometimes felt as if dragging. I was given a chance to read and review by its author. I had a difficult time with all the changes with the characters. However, I finished the book and felt sad as the child had to be sent away to be safe and not knowing the future for him. I recommend the book because it does keep the reader interested and must be read to appreciate the author's

So many questions and emotions. Here you have a story about a being who was created through genetic manipulation and sheltered until he decided he needed to escape in order to survive. Having left the comfortable confines of his then home, he becomes educated in the way of the world outside the peaceful settlement he knew. Pain and suffering become and instant lesson that is learned and as a reader we are taken on an emotional roller coaster as we root for the main character and sometimes dislik ...more

Thardrandria is a curious combination of an enthralling and forbidding alien planet.

Read full review in the 2016 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Mother. Animal lover. Vampire. Fangirl.

Aldrea Alien is a bisexual, genderfluid, New Zealand author of romantic speculative fiction of varying heat levels.

She grew up on a small farm out the back blocks of a place known as Wainuiomata alongside a menagerie of animals, who are all convinced they're just as human as the next person (especially the cats). She spent a great deal of her childhood ridin
