All Taylor wanted was to get to know her mother. Now, she may never get that chance.
Taylor went along for the ride to help her mother survey a new planet, and the offer of a few extra course credits for doing field work certainly didn’t hurt.
A planet on the edge of disputed territory, sure, but the war with the Xathen had ended thirty years ago, and the Commonwealth had won. It didn’t matter that the first survey ship failed to return, things like that happen during wartime.
But this was just term break, with two whole months to work alongside her mother and get to know her better while she sharpened her Xenobiology skills in a verdant paradise.
With any luck, she would graduate early.
Then Taylor messed up, big-time.
Now she was lost, alone and struggling to survive, stranded ten thousand light-years from home.

First you hate her - then you love her!
Extremely well written book, read it straight through in one sitting. At first Taylor is a pain in the butt, then she grows on you till you rapidly turning pages to find out what happens next. Just purchased the rest of the series (Yes, it's that good). Cannot wait to find out what is next in store for Taylor, It's going to be a late night, probably reading till dawn!

Avoid strangers. Good advice. But being bound to a green alien… On his planet… Now that’s awkward.
Taylor Neeran is on an amazing field trip. A long, long, long way from home. But she’s with her mother, so how much trouble can a young girl get in, anyway?
So much trouble! Taylor is about to learn some life lessons the hard way. From Char, an embarrassing green alien. Lessons that will change her life. If she survives, that is.
J.J. Mathews has crafted an extra-planetary adventure that makes you wish you’d stayed home. His young protagonist finds herself is a world of trouble. Paired up with the most frustrating alien imaginable. Well perhaps Mr. Mathews can imagine some embarrassing and dangerous ways two reluctant strangers can spend some quality time together. Whether they like it or not.
Sometimes getting home is complicated. Sometimes it is impossible. A delightful tale of exploration and growing up that is out of this world. Get lost on a far-off planet called Aeden.
Bravo & Kudos to the author of "Illiya (Taylor Neeran Chronicles Book 1)", Great start to a good series, I found it very hard to find a place to quit for the night. Even burning eyes did not convince me to stop. Great imagination, very good character development, description were installing vivid in your mind's eye-you were there. I have already bought the rest of the series and have started on Book 2.
