United (Alienated #3) by Melissa Landers 
Genre: Young Adult (Science Fiction/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: August 2, 2016
Publisher: EverAfter

After thwarting a deadly coup and saving the alliance between their worlds, Cara and Aelyx have finally earned a break. Their tiny island colony is everything they dreamed it would be―days spent gathering shells on the beach and nights in each other’s arms.

But the vacation is short-lived.

The treaty between Earth and L’eihr has awakened an ancient force that threatens to destroy them all. The Aribol, mysterious guardians charged with maintaining interstellar peace, deem the alliance a threat to the galaxy. They order a separation of the races, decreeing humans and L’eihrs must return to their own planets within the month or face extinction. In fact, they already have agents in place on Earth, ready to begin.

With the clock ticking, Aelyx and Cara assemble a team of colonists and race back to Earth, where they unite with old friends to solve the mystery of who the Aribol are, what they want, and the real reason the alliance has provoked them. As tensions build to a full-scale war, Aelyx and Cara must fight harder than ever―not just for their future, but for the survival of both their worlds.

United is the third book in the Alienated Trilogy by Melissa Landers. I really enjoyed the first two books, but for some reason this one never really grabbed me. Cara and Aelyx are in that honeymoon stage of their relationship where they are all mushy, gushy cuteness all the time, but they still do what they need to do for their planets. They know their responsibilities, and have great loyalty. I do enjoy their characters quite a bit, as well as many of the other supporting characters. That hasn't changed, but for some reason, and I hate to say this, but I was a little bored throughout the story. Sure, it had some action, but I don't know. It just didn't have the same pull as the first two books, and things were wrapped up pretty quickly. I was expecting something  a little more epic,  I think. I needed something more. With that being said, I like they way everything was wrapped up. I feel like all loose ends were tied up nicely, and I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

Don't forget to check out my reviews of the previous two books!
