Review to come. When I get my thoughts in order.


Alienne, a clandestine being far from her home planet traveling the solar system and watching Earth, one of her favorite places, stumbles upon a human astronaut. Her ability to read auras allows her the knowledge that this human ... Edward McAdams ... is not just any regular human to her. While she finds herself often fascinated with the humans on earth, she is even more drawn to Edward than any. because he is her Chosen -- the one being

Alienne Mine, a stand-alone prequel to Dragon Dawn, teleports readers to that realm between reality and imagination, where space travelers connect through thought and technology, but most of all in that purest of ways, through love.

Ed McAdams left Earth to explore and exploit space as a member of an asteroid mining team, but realizes he knows nothing when he meets Drajulal-kishah, or Alienne, a sentient, and spectacularly beautiful reptilian alien, who considers him her Chosen.

Alienne has been watching Earth in exile from her home planet. As humans approach Mars, she becomes even further intrigued. One is different from the others. Ed McAdams calls as only a chosen one can. Though different species, the draw is strong.

Ed McAdams is ready for a change. When a sexy alien boards his vessel while everyone else is out on expedition, he's taken by her strange beauty. He feels the needs to protect her. His crew mates won't feel the same way.

Can he leave everything he knows
Jul 28, 2015 rated it it was amazing
Beautifully written, descriptive, and fascinating. Like space itself, there’s so much here to explore and compare. This story could easily be longer. I wish it were. I want to know even more now of Alienne’s history, biology, and home planet. I wish the romance between Alienne and astronaut Edward McAdams wasn’t so compressed, but rather allowed to develop gradually. I’d like to see how this story intertwines with what happens in Dragon Dawn and the dark threat they’ve sensed on Mars. What roles ...more

Alienne Mine is the stand alone prequel to the exceptional book, Dragon Dawn, Book One of the Dinosaurian Time Travel Series. An exotic alien being watches Ed McAdams, an astronaut minng an asteroid in 2022, and decides he is her Chosen. It is time to show herself to him.

Edward’s First Contact defies everything his government has led him to believe about extra-terrestrials and he is captivated by Alienne and the life she offers him. Now he is faced with a decision: to leave his home, his career

I'm admittedly a little behind, having started Dragon Dawn but haven't finished it thanks to life just being bonkers. When I heard that this was a prequel, I decided to read it first. I was not disappointed, and I think I'm going to use Super Bowl weekend (and my boyfriend's general disinterest in life during said weekend) to get directly on top of restarting (and finally finishing) Dragon Dawn.

Deb O’Neill Cordes is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I think her success is because she writes about what she knows and loves. Either that, or she does bloody good research! Probably both.

Now I’m not a big fan of romance stories, but Deb has managed to make this eminently readable with her classy writing style, attention to detail and believable science. The characters are an interesting mix and add a bit of spice to this dish, and there are hints of what is to follow in “Dragon Daw

An interesting adventure through time and space with a unique blend of science, time travel, and romance. I enjoyed the colorful descriptions of this prequel.

Deborah O’Neill Cordes delivers once again with this intriguing story features an unlikely romance between the dinosaur-like being, who likes to be called Alienne, and a human male, Edward McAdams. She’s been traveling the universe for a long time, and believes she’s finally found her Chosen mate in the astronaut. But something unusual has happened on Mars; a beacon has been flashing signals, and Alienne senses danger. There is so much to enjoy here. It’s a great blend of science, science fictio ...more

This is a kind of prequel to Dragon Dawn, but it is set in the years before the astronauts land on Mars and with different characters, Alienne and a human astronaut Edward. Their growing love for each other is well written, their attraction and tense self examination about their futures well thought out and believable to me. At the end of this story, I started thinking about Dragon Dawn, and how these two stories will merge. I'm excited to see how Alienne and Ed fit into the sequel, which the au ...more

Even though Alienne Mine is a novella nothing is sacrificed. The story pacing is quick and makes you want to keep turning the pages to see what happens next. The world building is multi-dimensional as is the character creation. It had the feel of a book three times it's length as far as the complexity of the storytelling. When I finished I wanted to know more. It works as a stand-alone read or as a lead in to Dragon Dawn which I also loved! ...more

A sweet romance about an Earthly man and an alien female. They are both lonely and losing faith in their own species. Aliene has some evidence that earth and all of the humanity could be in danger. But should she try to help out or be mere observer.
I particularly liked the scenes describing other worlds and planets. Their descriptions make you feel like you are there along with Edwards and Aliene.
