The Others by Kristin Bryant

About the Book
A dangerous adventure to save a distant world Ryen is just a normal guy trying to do his job. Unfortunately, that job includes trying to save his distant world on the brink of disaster.
Ryen is on a mission to Earth to find the answers to his distant world’s most critical questions. While searching the Yucatan Peninsula for a mythic figure—a savior—who would live a perfect life and ultimately die to save their souls, Ryen meets Savannah, a beautiful woman hiding a painful past. On their dangerous adventures together through the untamed jungles of Mexico, he can’t help but fall in love with her. As his time runs out, Ryen must decide if he is willing to give up everything he has ever known and loved to stay on Earth with Savannah.
The Masters, a powerful clan of corrupt leaders, are plotting to take back Earth, the sacred planet, from the humans. Ryen and Savannah are thrust into the middle of The Masters’ plot.

My Thoughts
This book was a pleasant surprise. I didn't really know what to expect going in, but it turned out to be a pretty enjoyable read. There were a few things I didn't like though. The first was the fact that there was some head-hopping (where the story changes POV without any break) though since I was reading an e-copy ARC that might be something that is fixed! The second was a few uses of the h*** word, it wasn't a huge deal I just would have preferred it to not be there. And lastly was the fact that it was really hard to get a grasp on the age of the characters. At some points they sounded like teens and at other times like adults and I really don't know which they were. But all that aside; the plot was very unique, interesting, and well thought out and besides not being able to figure out there age the characters were all well written. The book was very fast paced definitely held my interest the whole time. All in all this was a really good book that was quite enjoyable!
