Jebaral was one of thirty-one aliens who
crash-landed their spacecraft on Earth five years ago, when
escaping the Arra’s. The Arras had imprisoned Jabaral’s
race to be used as either slaves or a food delicacy. When
the opportunity arose, Jeb and his brother along with the
others commandeered a spacecraft and landed on Earth. They
are shape shifters and during the day are locked into
whatever form they have taken. Their anatomy is similar
enough to humans they are able to blend in, though they are
strict vegetarians, have exceptional strength and must
revert to their base form at some point during the night.
Jeb can’t stand the thought of others
being imprisoned or hurt as he was in the past, and because
of this is quickly drawn to Hannah when she waits on him in
the diner. He is amazed at this lovely woman with her
bright smile and friendly manner. It is easy to see that
Hannah’s boyfriend is beating her and it doesn’t seem to be
stopping. Hannah is upset when Jeb announces that he is
moving on and won’t be seeing her daily.
Hannah spends the rest of her shift
dreaming about running away with Jeb and decides she might
take the chance to ask him. Unfortunately she talks in her
sleep and her boyfriend does not react well. When Hannah
doesn’t come to work, Jeb goes to her place and finds her
severely injured and takes her with him. Jeb and Hannah
quickly fall in love. But what will happen when Hannah sees
Jeb’s true form and will they be able to withstand Clay’s
fury if he finds Hannah?
Jebaral is a quick moving
story with a lot of information passed onto the reader.
Linda Mooney weaves Jeb and Hannah’s pasts expertly in with
their current adventures and feelings. Additionally she
does a great job in adding the right amount of internal
worry among her characters, so that you know not all is
easily solved. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale and look
forward to more in this potential series.
